R E V I E W ➠ Until December by Aurora Rose Reynolds

2019 ARCs, July 2019 Review, TOP 2019 MUST READ


BLURB

Gareth Black is drawn to December Mayson the moment he spots her across the room at her cousin’s wedding. When he approaches the beautiful woman, she captivates him with her shyness and wit, making him crave her.

With a pull so strong it’s impossible to ignore, December knows there’s something between her and Gareth. She just hopes they’re capable of jumping the hurdles ahead of them.

Two boys, an ex, a surprise that will change everything, and a disgruntled co-worker, guarantee these two will have their work cut out for them if they are going to find their happily ever after.

Release Date: July 30, 2019

“Ember.” Warm fingers wrap around my jaw, and I blink away the memory and focus on Gareth’s handsome face that is closer than before.
“Did you just call me Ember?” I frown, offended he’s forgotten my name already.
“Baby, your name represents the cold, but standing in front of you, I feel nothing but heat.”

Every part of us is in sync as he fucks me into oblivion, and when I start to come, I know he’s capable of touching a piece of me I didn’t even know existed until him.

-December

“You don’t even realize that the roots you’ve planted have become something to cling to in a storm. A safe place to go to when the winds start to pick up.”

-Gareth

Well, if you don’t know me you won’t know this but I AM A DIE HARD FAN OF AURORA’S BOOKS! I have read every single one of them, heck re-read them multiple times as well! So to say I needed this one is like saying you need water to live! GAH!!

I totally almost forgot that Gareth is the every so sexy single father from Until Harmony where his son’s did the car damage and heck I though he was going to play a part in that story. So happy he got his own and it involved December. One of my favorite from the Until Him/Her series!! *i am not screaming i swear*

This story starts of with a bang, when December is out with her sisters and April her twin and her spot the same man, but April jumps the gun and claims him first. After December was so disappointed because just from looking at the man, she felt a connection. Little did she know, he felt the same all night, but she had a pact with her twin sister, and she was sticking to it. Which led to a night of in the bed jumble that sadly ended on a PAINFUL note.

Thinking she would never see this man again, after *wait for it* leaving her cell phone at the man’s place she snuck out of then using a lame excuse her sister idea’s to her. She is really hurt by it but did it to herself, she ends up at a tattoo parler to get well a tattoo with her sister as promised, but does not expect to see Gareth Black again. A not so pleasant run-into-each-other later she further kicked herself for being stupid to do what she did.

Little about December, she is the twin of April and is the opposite. Where April is the outgoing, crazy and loud twin she is the cardigan, flat shoe wearing one. The goodie-tooshue if you may. Gareth brings out something in her, so when they someone end up seing each other again and making it a go…it’s explosive. I really loved them together, there was something about both of them that I couldn’t stop reading fast enough but when they were together even more magical.

There is not a lot of danger involved in this one, more of the EX form of danger. Meaning, I hated her and well let’s just say didn’t have nice things to say about her though out the whole book. I mean who does that, what kind of mom…UGH anyways. This is more on the sweet side, where things get intense between Gareth and December yes but he is so SWOON WORTHY in a sexy tattoo biker type of way. They way he is with his kids…*sigh* so sweet!

Obviously I would recommend reading the whole series yes but this alone, I’d read Until Harmony at least for sure before this. On it’s own it worked for me but again I’ve read the series multiple times. You will love the angst in the beginning, the chase, the ever so sweet and even the jealousy! Another TOP read from Aurora!!

R E V I E W ➠ Resist by K. Bromberg

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


BLURB

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.

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 ➠ 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.

R E V I E W ➠ This Is Crazy by Natasha Madison

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


THIS IS CRAZY

Zara Stone

All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my brother-in-law also plays in the league. 

Their lives are complicated, so I went in the opposite direction. 

I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage, he broke up with me.

Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to make that man see that I did not need him. 

Evan Richards

I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my career high wave. 

Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to crash her ex’s wedding. 

The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night with a beautiful woman. 

It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted. 

When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind: 

This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.

“It’s a dangerous place.” “What is?” I ask when I’m finally able to speak some words. “Your eyes,” he says. “I can get lost in your eyes.”



↪ R E V I E W ↩

Not my first read by the author! To be honest I’ve read book by the author before but this will be my first official review!!


Right from the start i fell in love with Zara’s twin sister, along with Zara. Couple of girls being girls until well…until he showed up and turned the whole fun day into shit. Stupid men and the “i think we’re going to fast” *ugh* anyways. after Zara’s boyfriend dumps her, she is in shock. She really loved him…or so she tells herself! Let the mourning comments. p.s. be ready for Vivi, i definitely want to be her when I grow up!


This is the best reaction I have ever read to a “my ex is getting married after he broke up with me saying it was too fast” I loved every minute from that section. Not just Zara but her whole family. Warning right now, not only will you fall in love with Evan the hero but SWOON hard over him! He is the perfect combo of handsome, sweet, smart and sexy! *swoon* The little cat and mouse game they play si just so SWEET. I love everything about the hero and how he is with the heroine. All the side characters are equally fun and great NOT to mention the writing that is smooth and easy to read!


He calls her SWEET ZARA, do you know how just SWEET that is, you’ll see when you read it but coming from Evan just sounds so romantic *gah* Their entire together-ness is do damn romantic, in a beautiful way! The way Zara is with his family, *sigh* i just want to live in this book forever, seriously just plain beautiful, so respectful and fun. Of course with every little fun there is a DEBBY DOWNER and her name is Candace, what a Q-B..woman like her *shaking head* I am glad to report that Zara is respectful even though she wants to throat punch her haha. All in all, this was a realistic, beautiful story. The words, the characters…re-read worthy! A book that will stick with me for a very long time! I am honestly looking for more very very much!!Sports-New-Love-Romance Book, Swoony, Dreamy, Sexy & Sweet

R E V I E W ↪ Broken With You by J. Kenner

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


He’s Jack Sawyer. I’m Denise Marshall. And never the twain shall meet.



Because damned if he didn’t want her. If he hadn’t wanted her form the first moment he’s seen her. And the hunger for her was only getting stronger with each passing minute.



↪ R E V I E W ↩

Not my first read by author, one of my very first reads & also a HUGE FAVORITE AUTHOR of mine. I have read almost every single book she has written!!
Now this, this is a work of J. Kenner. It’s the best way to describe it. If you’re a die hard fan of hers like me, you’ll understand. For you new readers, well J. Kenner has a voice when she writes so to say and that voice you would recognize in any book you read. And this one right off the bat you can tell. Her writing alone will have you hooked then she’ll line and sink you in with her characters and plots!


The beginning will have you wrecked, the words so vivid just as if you were the hero himself. The lost, the confusion…heartbreaking! What’s more heart wrenching is that he dreams of HER with the green eyes and golden hair but does not know her. After an accident (we will call it an accident for now) he has found himself to not even know who HE is yet alone everyone around him. Heck even the surroundings. He has flash backs of bits and pieces of recent and previous life but nothing that will stick for now.


Denise is in for a shock when she finally gets to see her husband Mason who clearly doesn’t recognize her or who he is fully for that matter. What Denise thought would be a ‘I’ve got this, I’m a trained specialist’ turned into one of the hardest things in her life. I mean how do you act or talk to the husband whom you love from the bottom of your soul, but he doesn’t remember you..or your time together, the kisses, the touches. All this and she can’t even tell him his name. That gutted me their meeting, watch out for all the emotions to appear!
Now she must work side by side with the man she loves, the man who doesn’t know who she is. Gah, guys this was a painful one. Considering Denise is a highly trained agent and has been through worse but how do you cope with having your husband near but yet so far away. Be prepared for a lot of heartbreak, action, passion and mystery along with secrets that come out. A story of love and lost, danger and memories. The ending, be prepared!! I do have to say, this is book 2 in the series and it officially is my absolute favorite! The depth of this story is insane! J. Kenner killed it with this one!!
