Review: Love in Lingerie by Alessandra Torre

I hired her to fix my company, to bring Marks Lingerie back to life. I didn’t expect her to become my friend. I didn’t expect to fall in love with her.

The first rule of business is to never touch your employees. I think there is another rule about not falling for your best friend—a rule against imagining the curves of her body, or the way her breathing would change if I pulled down her panties and unzipped my pants.

Now, I can’t wait any longer. I’m tossing out the rules.

Damn the company.
Damn our friendship.
Damn my fears.

5 Star Review
What did I read? I have read a handful of Torre's books. Each one has been unique and varying in genre. Torre definitely has an uncanny talent with words and stringing them together in a way that just leaves me in awe.

Those that follow my reviews know I am not usually a huge romance reader. The romance books I do choose to read are usually books that I fall for. This book is no exception to that. This book blew me away. It wasn't overly emotional. There weren't any major plot twists. But it had so much to it, I couldn't help but to fall in love.

Everything in this book was spot on. I loved the characters. They were so well developed. Their relationship from start to finish was pure perfection. The pacing in romance books is usually key for me. The pace of this story was beyond perfect. The slow build. The chemistry. The back and forth pull. It all came together perfectly.

I highly recommend this book no matter what genre you typically read. I can't seem to sing high enough praise for this book.

Review: Below Deck by Tara Sivec

Declan McGillis can't stand rich people. But working as a deckhand on a luxury charter yacht, he also can't escape them. Declan has spent years kissing their ass and doing their bidding...whatever it takes to make his dreams come true, and nothing will get in his way of being the captain of his own yacht one day.

Mackenzie Armstrong knows what people think when they look at her. She knows from the outside looking in, it seems like her family has it all and doesn't have a care in the world. Things aren't always what they seem, and not only does Mackenzie have the weight of her family's struggles on her shoulders, she also needs to prove to Declan that she's not the spoiled princess he believes her to be.

Declan can't ignore the sparks of lust between them, even though Mackenzie is completely off limits and absolutely out of his league.

Mackenzie thinks a vacation fling is just what she needs to forget about the mess her life has become, and Declan is the perfect man for the job.

Will this be a quick romp in the water, or will it turn into something more when Mackenzie finally gets below Deck?

3 Star Review
I am normally a lover of Sivec's books. Out of all of her books, this was my least favorite. Now, before you bring out the pitch forks, I am not saying I didn't like it. It just isn't on my favorite list. I guess I can't love them all. (insert sad face)

I have been trying for a couple of weeks to put my finger on what didn't do it for me with this one. This is one of the romances that just didn't grab me and hold on. There is good banter and chemistry between Mackenzie and Declan. Their story is written well...

I just didn't like the characters. When I don't like the characters, I have a hard time jumping on board with their story. Sivec is a phenomenal writer. Give her a genre to write, she will nail it. I have paid attention to the reviews. I see why people loved it. Unfortunately, I just couldn't jive with these characters.

I know many of you will probably like this one, if not love it. I just needed something more from this book.

Review: I See You by Clare Mackintosh

You do the same thing every day.

You know exactly where you're going.

You're not alone.

When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it's there. There's no explanation: just a website, a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it's just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.

Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make . . .

4 Star Review
This book was... different. Confusing at first. I will be honest, I had a hard time in the beginning. It wasn't making sense. I knew that it would eventually, but it took a little too long to start to come together for me.

Once the book picked up and really started, I was hooked. I had no idea who was behind everything. Everyone was a suspect. I thought that each character was guilty at one point or another. I never saw that ending coming.

This is one of those books that will keep readers guessing from the get go. It definitely is not obvious who and why. When it happens, it smacks the reader in the face. 

This was my first book by Mackintosh. I own another of her book and plan on reading it after reading this one. For those who like a book that will keep you guessing and turning the pages like a crackhead, this is definitely a book for you.

Review: The Cutaway by Christina Kovac

The Cutaway draws you into the tangled world of corruption and cover-up as a young television producer investigates the disappearance of a beautiful Georgetown lawyer in this stunning psychological thriller, perfect for fans of Paula Hawkins and Gillian Flynn.

When brilliant TV news producer Virginia Knightly receives a disturbing “MISSING” notice on her desk related to the disappearance of a beautiful young attorney, she can’t seem to shake the image from her head. Despite skepticism from her colleagues, Knightly suspects this ambitious young lawyer may be at the heart of something far more sinister, especially since she was last seen leaving an upscale restaurant after a domestic dispute. Yet, as the only woman of power at her station, Knightly quickly finds herself investigating on her own.

Risking her career, her life, and perhaps even her own sanity, Knightly dives deep into the dark underbelly of Washington, DC business and politics in an investigation that will drag her mercilessly through the inextricable webs of corruption that bind the press, the police, and politics in our nation’s capital.

5 Star Review
I am not sure where I want to go with this review. It definitely wasn't something I was expecting. The cover drew me in. After reading the blurb, I was curious if it would be something I would like. I am not always a fan of crime thrillers. This one definitely was right up my alley!

One of the main things I loved about this book is the perspective it was told from. To have the story given from the news side is not only unique, but it gave the story more intrigue. I definitely wasn't expecting to be so invested with this book.

The characters and plot are so well developed in this book. There wasn't a part in the book that I thought drug or made me want to roll my eyes. (Yes, that happens more often than I would like to admit.) I thought I had it all figured out, then I didn't, then I did... Then I thought the book was ending, but it wasn't finished yet. 

Kovac truly has a gift of storytelling. I have had this book stuck in the back of my head for days. DAYS. I can't stop going back to thinking about it. I highly recommend this book to just about anyone. If you can read, then you should read this book.

Release Day and Review: Bleed the Water Red by R.L. Griffin

When Kate Tennison returns to the low country of South Carolina it’s with her tail tucked between her legs. She doesn’t want to be there and face the love of her life, who’s now married with a child. Distance has not broken the spell of fear that surrounds why she ran from her home in the first place. 

Her story is a tragic one. 

Mom in rehab. 

Father dead. 

Career annihilated. 

When we run from something looking back over our shoulder, we miss the scars on the arms that now hold us. 

Can the magic of the water heal her wounded heart or does something dangerous lurk underneath the perfect features of the new man she’s decided to take a chance on?

Amazon US   /   Amazon UK   /   Amazon CA

4.5 Star Review
I can always count on R.L. Griffin to write a book that I can't really say much about without being a spoiler. Every thought I want to share could potentially give away some major plot twists in this story. While this is a standalone, I would suggest reading Quiet Lies in order to get the full effect of this book. I can't tell you why, but there are some key things in Q.L. that add to this jaw dropping story.

There isn't much about this book that I didn't like. It started out giving me a WTF reaction. That reaction continued throughout the book. The twists and turns, the characters and the plot. I had not anticipated getting this story in all its glory.

If I could change one thing about this book, it would be the darker parts of the book. Once you read it, you will see what I mean. I wanted more of the gasp-worthy scenes. Aside from that, this book was definitely a huge page-turner. I am not in the least bit ashamed that I loved every single word in this book!

R.L. resides in the Atlanta area with some cool dudes: her husband, son and two crazy dogs.  She was born and raised in the South.  She attended Georgia Southern University and moved to Washington, D.C. to intern in the United States Senate during the impeachment trial.  Falling in love with the city, she went to law school at American University, Washington College of Law.  By A Thread is R.L.’s second book, but is the first in a series that got her back into writing after a ten year hiatus.  She writes anything from romantic suspense to psychological thriller to romantic comedy. One of the things that readers always say is they never know what kind of story they will get from R.L.

I had no clue what I was getting into in this Infidelity story. I was hooked from the first page. Laughs and intrigue from start to finish.
This one is definitely a fast, enjoyable read. I loved the characters, who were well developed. I loved the plot, which moved at the perfect pace. I had this book read in no time. I almost didn't want it to end!

This was my first book by Winters. It also was the first I read from the Infidelity Worlds. I wasn't sure what to expect. I wasn't sure that anyone could write a story based off of Romig's phenomenal series.
I was hooked from the first page in this story. I was excited to have some great twists and turns, which kept the book moving at a perfect, fast-paced read.
Winters did a wonderful job with the characters and their story. I wanted more and more of them. I wanted more in this story, although the story told itself as it should have been. I definitely will be checking out Winters' others books after the wonderful job done on this story!

Newsletters Versus Spam

As of late there seems to be a lot of drama and what-not concerning newsletters. I have sat and watched the ball fly back and forth. The statuses on social media making my head spin.

First, we all love to stay in touch with our favorite authors. However, here is the deal. We have NO right telling anyone what they should or shouldn't be putting in these newsletters. It doesn't matter if they are telling us about their books, someone else's books or makeup. Those newsletters are THEIRS and theirs alone. If you are not happy with the content of those newsletters, then unsubscribe. Don't go all over social media having a bitch fit because you don't like the content.

Next, frequency. Again, it isn't up to anyone to tell someone how frequent sends out their own newsletter. It is annoying when you get multiple newsletters day after day from the same person? Absolutely. Again, there is a little button at the button titled unsubscribe. However, authors who are guilty of this, take note. Sending out too many newsletters, you loose subscribers. Over-saturating your subscribers email is not how to grow a fan base.

Also, if someone removes you from their list, so what! If you don't have time to open every newsletter you get, then weed them out. Unsubscribe yourself from the ones that you don't ever open. We notice who opens our newsletters and who doesn't. We can look at all kinds of stats on opens, bounces, unscubscribers. etc. If you aren't opening your newsletters and we pay for that newsletter service, yes you will be removed. You are just wasting someone else's money! Stop crying over it. Seriously.

Now, my favorite, marking a newsletter spam. Here's the deal. The only time to mark a newsletter as spam is when you know for a fact you never signed up for it. Many people pay a lot of money to run those newsletters. Marking a newsletter that is not spam as spam is not only wasting someone else's money but it's just flat our ignorant.

On the flip side of this, authors, bloggers, PR companies... DO NOT troll social media for people's emails. DO NOT trade your email list with someone else's. That IS spam. I cannot tell you how many unsolicited newsletters I get a day. Now how I am sure they are unsolicited? It's very simple for me. I have two blog emails. One being listed on all of my social media. It is specifically for all blog related materials like review requests, signups, etc. The other is private. It is not listed anywhere. That is the email I use for ALL newsletters. So when I get newsletters in the first mentioned email, those are spam. I did not sign up for them... they DO get marked as spam when I unsubscribe because they are spam. Do not add people that do not want added to your subscriber list! That is the exact opposite way of growing a fan base.

I am not sure why this subject has so many people all up in roar. Seriously, they are just newsletters. There are way more important things to be worried about than a simple email. If this truly is something you have time to cry over on social media, maybe you need to find a more constructive hobby. For real.

Review: At the Risk of Forgetting by A.M. Wilson

Cami has come a long way from the scared girl who left home at sixteen and pregnant. With hard work and determination, she’s built her daughter a dream life in Arrow Creek, West Virginia. As a single mom, career paramedic, and a homeowner, she doesn’t have time to entertain love. Or men. Or sex. Definitely forget about dating. 

Fast forward fourteen years, she stumbles upon her childhood best friend and love, Lawrence ‘Law’ Briggs, at the local coffee shop. A painful confrontation ensues and challenges her carefully constructed reality. Her strength wavers with Law’s reappearance as half-truths are revealed and memories flood through the barrier. Each encounter uncovers the remnants of their deep feelings, but the pain and guilt between them leads Cami to believe they could never work through their past. Dark secrets hold them apart. The deepest betrayal imaginable. 

Her daughter was a gift she'd never regret, even if it meant she lost him forever. The answer seems simple, but it’s not. Years of hurt and suffering can’t hide that Law still loves her, but is that love enough?

*** 3 Star Review ***

I seem to be reading a lot of second chance romances lately. Each and every one of them are unique in their own way. This book is definitely not what I had expected.

Secrets will always rip people apart. That is what this book is about. Secrets. Secrets that ripped a teenage couple apart and then continues to rip them apart once they bump into one another years later.

This story was a very easy read. A few things shocked me, even though I had figured them out eventually. The back and forth tug-of-war these two have kept me reading all of the way until the end.

If you are looking for an easy, semi-emotional read, this book is definitely right up your alley!

Review: Vanished by T.K. Leigh

Recommended for mature readers due to strong language and graphic violence.

Rayne Kilpatrick has everything. A job she’s dreamed of since a little girl. The perfect house. And a man she loves and is about to marry… Until he never returns from a humanitarian mission.

Gone. Disappeared. Vanished.

When footage of his gruesome murder by a Muslim extremist group is shown across the country and around the globe, she wants the person responsible for the disappearance of the man she loves to pay. She wants him to lose the one person who means the world to him, too, and she won’t stop until he does.

Alexander Burnham has everything… Finally. A job he enjoys where he can actually make a difference in the world. The perfect woman who he’s loved his entire life. And the most beautiful daughter a father could ask for… Until he walks into her bedroom one morning to find it empty.

Gone. Disappeared. Vanished.

It’s a race against the clock for Alexander to put the pieces together and find out who has taken his daughter and what they want from him. As information comes to light, he is forced to bury the guilt he feels after losing his fellow team member and focus instead on finding and saving his daughter…

Before it’s too late.

Vanished can be read in conjunction with or separate from the Beautiful Mess series.

**** 4 Star Review ****

When I went in to this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. I have read all of Leigh's books. Every last one. I have been a huge fan since she released her first book... which happened to be these very characters. Well, Alex and Olivia... But this one is set in the future. 

I will admit. I didn't know who was going to go missing in this book. You are probably wondering how since it's in the blurb. Well, I didn't read the blurb. It's T.K. Leigh. Naturally, I just wanted to read her words. I went in completely blind.

When his daughter is taken, I was shocked. I was scared. The twists and turns in this book had me flipping the pages, waiting to get to the end.

This book is definitely an emotional roller coaster and a race against time. I wish I would have had the time to devour it in one sitting. It's one of those books that you want all of the answers as soon as possible.

T.K. Leigh, otherwise known as Tracy Leigh Kellam, is a USA Today Bestselling author of the Beautiful Mess series, in addition to several other works. Originally from New England, she now resides in sunny Southern California with her husband, dog, and three cats, all of which she has rescued (including the husband). In late 2015, she gave birth to her first (and only) baby. When she’s not planted in front of her computer, writing away, she can be found training for her next marathon (of which she has run over fifteen fulls and far too many halfs to recall) or chasing her daughter around the house.

Review Tour: Fake Fiancee by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Fake engaged to the hottest quarterback in the country? SCORE.

They say nothing compares to your first kiss,
But our first kiss was orchestrated for an audience.
Our second kiss . . . that one was REAL.
He cradled my face like he was terrified he’d f*ck it up.
He stared into my eyes until the air buzzed.
Soft and slow, full of sighs and little laughs,
He inhaled me like I was the finest Belgian chocolate,
And he’d never get another piece.
A nip of his teeth, his hand at my waist . . .
And I was lost.
I forgot he was paying me to be his fake fiancée.
I forgot we weren’t REAL.
Our kiss was pure magic, and before you laugh and say those kinds of kisses don’t exist,
Then you’ve never touched lips with Max Kent, the hottest quarterback in college history.

Three months. Two hearts. One fake engagement.

**** 4 Star Review ****

There is always something about Ilsa's characters that make her stories work. They are always snarky and realistic in different ways. Sunny and Max fall right into that category.

From the start I was hooked. I loved Sunny and her take no prisoners attitude towards Max. And Max with his easy going, flirty attitude. I knew right away this was going to be an entertaining read.

I am not usually one for the fake relationship books. We all know how they will end. However, the pages between the beginning and the end were a delight to read. I giggled so many times. I couldn't wait for these characters to finally wake up and see what was right in front of them.

Wall Street Journal best selling author Ilsa Madden-Mills writes about strong heroines and sexy alpha males that sometimes you just want to slap.

She's addicted to all things fantasy, including unicorns and sword-wielding females. Other fascinations include frothy coffee beverages, dark chocolate, Ian Somerhalder, astronomy (she's a Gemini), and tattoos. She has a degree in English and a Master's in Education. When she's not pecking away on her computer, she shops for cool magnets and fuzzy pajamas.

She loves to hear from readers and fellow authors. Email her at
