[Review] Lost Love by Kelly Elliott

  
love amazon
Moving back home to my parents’ cattle ranch in Texas was the last thing I thought I’d be doing. But, here I stand … in front of my high school girlfriend. A beautiful, confident woman has replaced the young girl I once knew and loved. Hell. I’m still in love with her. Yep. Paxton Monroe was my first love and the one girl in town who now hated my guts. So much so, Paxton swore her revenge on me if it took her until the day she died. The last words she spoke to me were a vow to cut my dick off and shove it down my throat. The fight between my heart, my head, and last, but certainly not least, my dick starts tonight. Because all I can think about is how I want to be buried so deep inside Paxton she won’t remember how I broke her heart, or how I left her when she needed me the most. But who will win? My heart is too broken to listen to my head. And my dick, yeah it’s not listening to anything or anyone. Not until it gets what it wants and what it wants is Paxton Monroe.

Review
When I want Cowboys I always turn to Kelly Elliot. She writes the best county books out there. The start of the Cowboys and Angels series is packed with heat, romance, sweetness, and cowboys. I was mesmerized from the start to the end of Lost Love. Kelly creates the perfect ranch setting with an amazing second chance romance. 

Long ago Steed Parker broke Paxton’s heart, so this book is set 10 years after that difficult day. We get glimpses of the past and everything that went down between these two characters. Not only do we get these two amazing characters but we get the rest of the Parker brothers and sisters. And my oh my, it is cowboys galore! The seven Parker siblings will give us one heck of a ride. 

For now, let me talk about Steed. He is an identical twin with his brother Mitchell and they look exactly alike except for some slight differences. Steed is in charge of the finances for the ranch and he knows how to rope like no other! That is extremely hot! Steed is sweet, caring, and a total knockout because of the way he treats his daughter Chloe. He treats her like a princess making him extremely swoon-worthy. He romances like no other too! He is the complete package.

Paxton is such a sweetie! She is a kindergarten teacher and has a heart of gold. I loved her character and the way she made Steed work for it. She is a country girl and that works perfect for someone like Steed. I loved watching this love story unfold. 


Lost Love is a great start to the series but so much more is to come! Kelly Elliott delivers with more cowboys and more romance and steam then ever before. She creates the perfect world to get lost in. These books are definitely worth the read.

Review
**5 stars**

Oh, how I love the cowboys that Kelly Elliott brings us. Kelly's ability to tell a story is something that draws me into every one of her books. Her words and her characters never fail to make me fall in love with them. I always have a new book boyfriend when I'm finished reading. Lost Love was exception. The bonus of this story was we got the cowboy, the single dad and the second chance romance- all of which make me love a story even more.

Parker Steed is no exception to being my new favorite book boyfriend. Everything about Steed was amazing, don't get me wrong he has his faults, but the best thing about Steed was seeing him own up to his faults and mistakes from his past. He returns home to his family ranch in Texas after being away for years. The only thing that could bring him back was his family and them being there for his daughter Chloe. Watching Steed being a dad is amazing. You feel how much he loves Chloe and the fact that she has him wrapped around her little finger. There is only thing that makes Parker nervous about returning to Texas, the one thing that has kept him from coming home for so long Paxton Monroe- his greatest love and biggest regret.

Paxton Monroe has her dream job, in the town she grew up, the only thing missing is the man she thought would be her man forever. When back to school happens, she runs into the one person she thought she'd never see again, the man who broke her heart, Parker Steed, but the child he has with him is what throws her for a loop. Parker has the one thing she has always wanted, with him, a child. Can she survive being Chloe's teacher and interacting with Parker? Having Parker back in her life is she something she wasn't prepared for, she most definitely wasn't prepared for Chloe. Both are easy to fall in love with, but there is history and wounds that need to heal.


Watching Parker and Paxton fall back in love was one of my absolute favorite parts of the story. Watching Paxton fall in love with Chloe was my other favorite. All three of these characters own my heart and I wouldn't have it any other way. I can't wait to see what else Kelly brings to us with this series. I already k ow I'm dying for Amelia's story and can't wait to read it.

 

Excerpt
“Whatcha doing?” 
I nearly jumped out of my skin as I spun around and clutched at my chest. 
“Jesus, Amelia! Why would you sneak up on me like that?” 
She tried to hide her smile and failed. Lifting her brows, she glanced past my shoulder. “Were you watching Steed and Chloe?” 
My cheeks heated. “What? No! Are they here? I haven’t seen them. Why would you say that?” When her eyes moved back to mine, I knew she saw right through my blunder of lies. “Uh-huh. I know I was little when you and Steed dated, so we really don’t know each other all that well.” She smiled. “But I can already tell you’re a terrible liar, Paxton.” 
I dropped my head then peeked up at her. “I wasn’t spying.” 
Amelia held up her hands. “I didn’t say you were.” 
Chewing on my lip, I sighed. “Okay. I was spying. I’m lost, Amelia.” 
With a soft sympathetic grin, she glanced at her brother. “So is he, Paxton. His eyes are so sad. Earlier this morning we all had breakfast together as a family and both Mom and I noticed it.” 
“The family was all together?” I asked. 
She nodded with a grin. “The boys have been working the ranch the last two days so they’re all staying at the house. It’s been nice having Steed home again. Dad’s thrilled he’s back and digging deeper into the business side of the ranch. The idea of having another son run day-to-day operations has him all kinds of happy.” 
Guilt hit me square in the chest. It was my fault he left. I told him to leave. 
He left his family and stayed away because of me. 
“I’m so sorry he left town,” I said. 
“Paxton, you didn’t keep him away all those years. That was his decision. A poor one, but his nonetheless.” 
I shrugged. Turning, I glanced back at Steed and Chloe. “He’s such a good father.” 
The sadness in my voice caused Amelia to put her hand on my shoulder and gave it a squeeze.

[Release Blast] Rock Star by Stacey Kennedy


A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty 
and a whole lot more complicated!


ROCK STAR
A Bad Boy Homecoming Novel
Stacey Kennedy
Releasing June 27, 2017



A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new erotic romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy.

Veterinarian, Rae Evans expects to attend a dreadful ten-year high school reunion. Instead, she’s confronted by a past she’s never gotten over. The love of her life, Travis Walker, has returned to Catfish Creek, and the now-famous rock star wants only three things: Her. Naked. And screaming his name.

Fresh off his last world tour, Travis has returned to town to get a dose of reality. With fame casting a superficial cloud over Travis’s life, he’s scrambling to stay afloat. He needs an anchor, and Rae is that for him. But as he finds himself, he’s determined to remind Rae of the heat that once burned between them.

Before they know it, their one hot night is three, and soon, just like ten years ago, Travis holds the strings to Rae’s heart. But Rae’s not that young girl who watched her high school sweetheart race off to become famous. She’s a woman who knows what she wants and realizes when a man needs her. She just has to decide if she should put the past on repeat, or walk away from it forever.





STACEY KENNEDY is the USA Today bestselling author of the Dirty Little Secrets and Club Sin series. She writes deeply emotional romances about powerful men and the wild women who tame them. When she’s not writing sensual stories, she spends her time in southwestern Ontario with her real life hero, her husband, their two young children, and her other babies: a mini labradoodle named Jax and a chocolate labrador named Murphy. Stacey is a proud chocolate, television show, Urban Barn, and wine addict. She likes her heroes in her books like she likes her coffee . . . strong and hot!

[Review] Until It Fades K. A. Tucker

Title: Until It Fades
Author: K. A. Tucker
Release Date: June 27, 2017
Format: eARC (Netgalley)

Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania: population two thousand outside of tourist season.
And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed attempt at a relationship, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has saved: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.
Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works.
For a time.
But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. What begins as an immediate friendship quickly turns into something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something that Catherine is afraid to trust.
Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine…before the spark fades?
​Review

**4 Stars**
This was my first book by KA Tucker and I can say it won't be my last! My TBR list is now full of her stories and I can't wait to dig into them. Until It Fades was a book that got me hooked form page 1 and I couldn't put it. I loved everything about it from the characters, to the story, to the chemistry between the characters. It was exactly what I needed.
Catherine Wright is a single mom who does all she can to provide for herself and her daughter Brenna. When a choice she made at 17 (and really 18) changes the course for her life path, she is thrown and does everything she can do support herself. When she ends up saving the life of a stranger, she didn't know the whirlwind that was going to soon follow her life. Will she let herself be happy, forgive herself for past mistakes or will she subject herself to a life of unhappiness?
Brett Madden is one of my new favorite male characters. He is he lovable from the moment you read his character. After being saved by Catherine in a car accident that took his best friend and teammates life, he wants nothing more than to take the person who saves him, what he wasn't prepared for was the connection to her and falling in love with her.

Everything about this story was amazing. It was an easy read and the story flowed together. I couldn't put it down and I was sad that it ended.

[Blog Tour] Strong Enough by Melanie Harlow and David Romanov

SBPRBanner-StrongEnough-RB.jpg

Strong Enough, an all-new sexy standalone from USA Today Bestselling author Melanie Harlow and David Romanov is available now !

MHDRStrongEnoughBookCover5x8_BW_350

Strong Enough

by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov

Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Publication Date: June 19, 2017

I wasn’t looking for Derek Wolfe.
I wasn’t looking for anybody. All I wanted was to start a new life in America. But when I found myself stranded here with no place to go, he came to my rescue, offering me a place to stay.
He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell—I can barely sleep knowing he’s right down the hall. And when the chemistry between us explodes one night with fierce, fiery passion, it’s hard to deny there’s something real between us.
But he does.
He says he was drunk. He says it was a one-time thing. He says he’s not into guys and what we did meant nothing.
He’s lying. Because it happened again, and again, and again. And it’s better every time.
I know we could be good together, and I want the chance to try, but I’m done hiding. If he’s not strong enough to admit the truth, I’ll have to be strong enough to walk away.

Excerpt:

Figuring I’d had enough booze to blunt his effect on me, I rolled up the sleeves of my black button-down shirt and moved next to him. “I’ll help you.” “Okay.” I caught him trying to not to look at my wrists and forearms, and it made me smile. How does it feel to want someone and have to hide it? “You wash, I’ll dry?” “Sounds good.” We worked in silence, shoulder to shoulder, and I found myself increasingly—and disturbingly—pleased at the thought of him being attracted to me and being forced to conceal it. It was fucking horrible of me to take pleasure in his discomfort, but I liked being secretly wanted. Being illicitly desired. Being the object of his covert glances and maybe even his darkest, dirtiest thoughts. I let our arms touch more than necessary, as thrilled by the physical contact as I was by the thought of what it might be doing to him. For there is no man who does not sin. My dick started to get hard, clearly unbothered by the whiskey that was breaking down my inhibitions, pushing past all my defenses, and letting my imagination run wild. What’s in that gorgeous head of yours, Maxim? What’s behind those cobalt eyes? What would you do to me, if I let you? What would you let me do to you? “Carolyn is so nice,” he said, handing me the last serving dish left to be dried. What? He was thinking about Carolyn right now? He wasn’t supposed to be thinking about Carolyn—I was, goddammit! But I wasn’t. “Yeah.” He turned off the water. Rested his wet hands on the edge of the sink. “I didn’t realize you had a girlfriend.” And I heard it in his voice—the slightest edge of jealousy, so faint I might never have noticed it had I not been so hyperaware of everything about him right now. I fucking loved it. “She’s not my girlfriend.” “Oh.” Now there was confusion. “I guess I misunderstood.” “She wants to be my girlfriend.” Silence. Of course there was silence. Maxim would never ask what the problem was. But I wanted to tell him. I wanted him to know. I wanted to share the impossible longing I felt with one person who might understand it. “The problem is me.” He was completely still. Before I could stop myself, I covered his right hand with my left. “Sometimes I don’t know what I want.” He yanked his hand from beneath mine and we faced each other. For the first time tonight, I looked him right in the eye. Nothing around us existed for me anymore. I heard only his breath. Smelled only his skin. Saw only his guarded expression. I had to have him.

Review

**4.5 Stars**
I loved everything about this new release from Melanie Harlow and David Romanov. The story, the characters, the emotions, the romance, it was all so beautifully written that I didn't want it to end. I instantly fell in love with Maxim and Derek. They steal your heart in the best way possible. The scenes are steamy and there is passion, but what you love most about these two in the chemistry and desire.
I hope we get more from this amazing writer duo.

[Review] Stay by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

Title: Stay
Authors: Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy
Series: WAGs, Book 2
Release Date: June 20, 2017
Format: eARC

Can you fall in love with someone you've never even met?
Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch--an anonymous virtual assistant service--is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.
Although it's against the rules for her to check his file, she's 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting...until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.
Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He's still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth--that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won't show her pretty face.
But it's nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can't fix. Hailey can't resist the offer. Matt can't resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn't have to. Fire up the kiss cam!
Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.



Review

**4.5 Stars**
Oh man, I am loving the WAGs series by these two. It seriously just gets better and better with every story. Matt and Hailey's story was just what I needed. I loved the awkwardness, the chemistry, and the real life aspects.

I related to Hailey on so many levels with her awkwardness that it made me love her even more than I was prepared for. She was real. She loves with her all, even if she is scared. She gets nervous to be around her crush, she fumbles over words. I LOVED everything about her characters and who she was with Matt. She loved him fiercely and accepted him for who he is and what his job is.

Matt hasn't had it easy. His ex-wife wasn't very nice to him and made him question everything about himself when it comes to relationships. What he wasn't prepared for was the beauty of HTE, aka, Hottie, or his attraction to her. After his divorce he hasn't dated, but that will soon change. Dating comes with potential of a relationship. Is that something he will give himself or will his past destroy all chances of him being happy.


I LOVED Matt and Hailey's story. Sarina and Elle did such an amazing job. ​I can't wait to see what else we get from these two in this amazing series.
