Book Description:

“A passionate work of romantic suspense from a USA Today bestselling author!” ~BookBub 

Senior Detective Cat Day has one hard and fast rule about dating: no cops. They live hard and die young―a truth she’s faced every day since her fiancé’s tragic death several years ago. But when rookie Jace Sutton shows up to work the same burglary investigation, she feels desire she hasn’t felt in years. 

Jace knows what he wants the minute Detective Day strolls onto his crime scene in heels and a pencil skirt tailored by God himself. He wants to thaw the legendary Ice Queen, and it only takes one hot, dirty night for Jace to realize he wants more. Much, much more. 

But more is the last thing Cat wants from any cop―especially a playboy rookie like Jace. As the burglary investigation heats up and he repeatedly puts himself in danger, Cat must ask herself if Jace will be as reckless with her heart as he is with his life. 

The Stand-In: my life as an understudy by Elizabeth Stevens

My current read… I’m over here like trying to beat my reading goal… I’m at 178 out of 200. I’m trying to make it to 200 before the end of the year is over… So far this book is actually good! 📖.. 

Book Review:

Stand-in to leading lady …

**** I did slap a few spoilers; into this review didn’t know I would…. but I did…. because. I had too…

I liked this book; it was a little different. But also good; I liked the fact that Eli like Chloe over her evil-Ella sister “Ella… because that girl was horrible and her (Chloe) parents were more up Ella behind rather than caring about what Chloe wanted to do and what made her happy. Chloe had her grandma and her aunt and Ella had their parents. Their parents only paid attention to Chloe when she went to the dance with her friends.

Plus; I was glad when Elijah wrote that song and the other song about her… to prove to Ella that he didn’t want her he wanted her younger sister. I felt like Chloe changed Eli for the better. Because he was a man-w****… and that wasn’t good for how old he was especially when you get up in the age… you be played out! But I was waiting on her to finally admit that she wanted to be with Elijah she didn’t really get on my nerves about Eli and her feelings. I just wanted her to stop pretending and stop following and doing everything her sister wanted her to do. I was glad; when she finally became who she wanted and didn’t want to be the shadow of her sister the “stand-in” she finally came out of her shell… and became Chloe Cowan and not Ella Cowan the person who treated her like crap and everyone thought she was from a distance…

I liked how everyone half of the people anyways figures out that Chloe was the nicer sister, and Ella was the evil sister. I had to laugh at the end when Eli sang that song for Chloe in front of everyone including her sister and then in the auditorium when Ella told her not to kiss Eli, and she (Chloe) did… I was like about time girl you don’t care about what your sister thinks, and she kissed him too…. & finally got the guy & wasn’t a stand-in you look at it Chloe was actually the leading lady, she just didn’t see it for herself and didn’t see she was beautiful and guys and others liked her whereas her sister was just a horrible person. That half of year twelve which I believe in American is twelfth grade knew Ella was evil…

Hard Place (Hard to Love #1) by Emily Goodwin

My current read. 📖… finally gotten around to reading it. so far so good 😊 @authoremilygoodwin… 

Book Review:

****Splashing around with the spoilers in this review****
Dude …. but before I get into it… I got this book as an ARC. But I’ve just read it like after it came out because I was reading something completely different…

But…. dude… I’m never disappointed when I read Emily Goodwin romance books. Like it had me wanting to know what happens next. That’s how good it was.

Plus that Max guy was a little creepy though. In my mind, I think “Max” is Michael, the kid’s father. But I cannot wait for book two “Hard Truth” to come out October 3rd so I can find out what truly happened…

But back to the beginning; I had to laugh at both Alex and Harper because he was her boss, and she was his assistant. They were mean to each other during orientation for his nephew first day and her twins first day of kindergarten. & learning they worked together was priceless. Though deep down, they both had a thing for one another but kept denying their feelings for each other. Through the fake hate, they had for one another. But all that changed when they went on that “kind” of the business trip….. though Kate help with that plus…..

He got them in that situation for helping out Harper from them mean moms which I liked because those women were horrible. The worse kind is the ones who spend their man’s money and bash the women who work for what they got. Those women didn’t know what hard work was while taking care of kids. Then what was Bad they tried ruining the kids fun time during school… like who in their right mind would get rid of slides (playground) smh 🤦🏽‍♀️ crazy…
But in the end Alex helped Harper out when it came to Mindy or whatever Pepto-Bismol name was with the pink pants suit… clearly you cannot wear pink on pink just horrible with a hairspray (the movie) hairstyle… but anyways I hope 🤞 in book two that Alex and Harper figure things out and Alex gets to tell her how he feels and how he wants her to be his girlfriend… but one thing for sure Michael (God I hate this name; it’s EVERYWHERE) better not mess things up for them. Because I want Alex and Harper together and in the end, she moves out of the projects and moves into his penthouse. While also being pregnant with his baby because I don’t think they use protection…

Book Description:

Cold. Callous. Cocky.

A total playboy with abs for days, a panty-melting smirk, and a face the gods themselves would be jealous of. And he’s my new boss. None of that matters, because as a single mom, men like Alexander Harding are the last thing I need. What I do need is this job, so I’m going to keep my head down, work hard, and avoid that asshole as much as humanly possible.

But then he gives me an offer I can’t refuse, even though everything inside of me is warning me to run away and never look back.

It’s just one weekend.

One weekend to convince a potential client that Alexander has changed from the player who spent more time in the bedroom than the boardroom into a family man they’d be happy to go into business with.

But the more time I spend with him, the more I realize that there might be a beating heart buried under his designer shirts and spectacular pecs after all…which is bad news for me.

Because the only thing worse than hating your boss is falling in love with him.

Forever Yours (Ridgewater High #6) by Judy Corry

Current read 📖….. 

Book Review:

Pretty good read…

*** There are spoilers here and there****

I had to go down memory land to figure out where Jace and Logan came from I don’t know why I thought they were from a Christmas book. But I did realize that Logan was from the book with Raven… because they did that Christmas event together and she didn’t like him like that she was more into Jace rather than Logan…. when it came to Olivia I’m like ahhh more details into what happened with Jace point of view. Rather than Raven and Logan point of view because Raven did thought it was Logan for a chance. But finding out that Jace had lipstick on his lips when he went to talk to Alyssa was crazy…

I mean, I wanted her to forgive him because he did like her, but how could he think that she would’ve forgiven him when he had Olivia lipstick on his lips. But it’s a good thing that her best friend Raven help Jace get Alyssa back with also the help of his twin brother and they doing the switch-a-roo thing again. But they did have her for a minute or two because she clearly thought she was talking and dancing with Logan until she figured out that it was Jace.

Not only that it’s a good thing that she forgave Jace because he clearly wasn’t like Trey who cheated on Alyssa and didn’t even care about her feelings only cared about winning a bet.. plus I knew he probably remembered a lot of things especially when he was talking to Alyssa than Jace… I’m like hmm this boy more likely remembered everything that happened. Plus I thought it was karma that goes him, but clearly, he didn’t learn anything after the accident because he was clearly the same person he always been especially when he had all those ex-girlfriends after Kaela…

Btw: I want a story with their friend Rachel and maybe the guy Ky Miller because that’ll be an interesting story because she clearly hates the guy…

For Alyssa, Friday nights are all the same. She cheers at whatever sporting event is in season, then goes to a party with her boyfriend, Trey, and tries to keep him from getting too drunk. So when her childhood crush, Jace Carmichael, shows up one night, she’s not sure what to do with the feelings that come flooding back.

When Jace moves back to Ridgewater, he only has two goals: fit in with his old friends and make sure Trey never finds out that he kissed Alyssa the night before he moved away. But when he discovers that Trey might be cheating on Alyssa, he wonders if those goals are worth having anymore.

Soon, Jace confronts his friend and accidentally lets his true feelings slip. To his surprise, Trey challenges him with a bet. One week to charm Alyssa and if he succeeds, Trey will step aside. Making a bet is crazy, but Jace is desperate for a chance at Alyssa’s heart. As long as she doesn’t find out, it will be worth it, right? 

Handle With Care (Shacking Up #5) by Helena Hunting

So glad I get a can’t to read “handle with care” 🙌🏽 @helenahunting 

Book Review:

*I pop through with a lot of spoilers throughout my review****•

Ohh I am so happy that I got to read this book. Because I was counting the days until it’s released date. & I can say I wasn’t disappointed at all. But learning that Lincoln and Armstrong had a half-sister was a surprise. But I also figure something was up with their mom and it wasn’t really their father who was the bad parent. Their mother is clearly a horrible woman and took Lincoln to get rid of her. & Armstrong gets his ways from his mom, especially when she let him get by with things no matter what he did. I believe his mom also made their dad swipe Armstrong behavior under the rug. Because she did it when it came to his ex-fiancée who he cheated on at their wedding, I was glad she left him for his cousin who was a better man than him.
Though; having their sister Hope there to tame Armstrong is a blessing. I am hoping the author end up writing a book about Armstrong even though he has a pencil-di** as well as Hope because I want to see if he’ll actually change and become a better person because he doesn’t have any custody of the baby he had with Imgeon or whatever how you spell her name. I just want to see if he’ll change his creepy ways and how he speak to women he needs a woman like Wren because I felt like a woman who can smack Armstrong down a couple of notches would be good for him. Especially if their mom isn’t around anymore with her hungry money ***.
But in my mind, I think their dad probably died from having sex with Hope mom, that’s how he ended up with that heartache that led to him dying on the way to the hospital. Not only that their mom Gwendolyn clearly didn’t care about what Lincoln did when he was out there helping build things and helping other countries. He did more labor and hard work to help people more than she (Gwen) did including Armstrong who was too uptight to ride the subway 🚇…. unlike Lincoln who wanted too.

Lincoln is a way better person than Armstrong though. Especially when it comes to his personality among other things like what he wears and what the public thinks. Armstrong needs a lot of help, and I do wonder if he’ll ever get it because I believe he has a mental health issue…..

But like I said I am hoping that Armstrong (needle di**) end up with a book, along with their sister Hope and even Dani (Wren best friend) who knows Dani may can tame Armstrong, but I don’t think she’s the right person for him. But I do wonder if it’ll be the sixth book to this series.

Book Description:

HE WANTS TO LOSE CONTROL.
Between his parents’ messed up marriage and his narcissistic younger brother, Lincoln Moorehead has spent the majority of his life avoiding his family. After the death of his father, Lincoln finds himself in the middle of the drama. To top it all off, he’s been named CEO of Moorehead Media, much to his brother’s chagrin. But Lincoln’s bad attitude softens when he meets the no-nonsense, gorgeous woman who has been given the task of transforming him from the gruff, wilderness guy to a suave businessman

SHE’S TRYING TO HOLD IT TOGETHER.
Wren Sterling has been working double-time to keep the indiscretions at Moorehead Media at bay, so when she’s presented with a new contract, with new responsibilities and additional incentives, she agrees. Working with the reclusive oldest son of a ridiculously entitled family is worth the hassle if it means she’s that much closer to pursuing her own dreams. What Wren doesn’t expect is to find herself attracted to him, or for it to be mutual. And she certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Lincoln. But when a shocking new Moorehead scandal comes to light, she’s forced to choose between her own family and the broody, cynical CEO.

Don’t Trust the Impostor (Rockford High Book 3) by Victorine E. Lieske

Currently reading 📖…. 63% done… 

Book Review:

Awesome read

 

***¥•• I splash a bunch of spoilers throughout this review•••*^^^^¥¥

 

This book was awesome. I didn’t know I was 63% done until I had looked. I was like WOW I’m halfway finished with this book and didn’t realize I was. It’s different when you read books with longer words writing in one chapter. “I think that’s the says” lol!

But anyway, it’s interesting to know that Destiny found out about that BET well more so Eli taking money from Jack the wack job! Towards the ending of the book. Because I was like when is she going to learn what happened and why Jack and Eli be sneak talking! But clearly Destiny couldn’t see the LIGHT until Eli came in the picture because without Eli; 9 out of 10 she would’ve been with Jack. If he didn’t break up with her first; or that girl that Jack was dating didn’t come forward and snitch on him about his cheating!

Lord knows I was HAPPY when she broke it off with Jack; especially when learning, he was with another girl when she called to break up with him. Plus when she found out about Eli and the money; and him helping Jack get rid of her. I was like she better forgives Eli because Jessica (her cousin) forgave her for taking/cheating with her ex-boyfriend Jack. Who by the way was a piece of crap even Jessica in her book; told Destiny, Jack wasn’t any good.. at least Destiny met Eli through Jessica and ended up actually happy.

I do hope that Eli ended up getting his dog back, but the author never mentioned anything else about his dog or them getting a house or apartment that accepts animals. But I am so ready to read the book with Cole and Amanda.. because she’s so clueless about Cole feelings; though she has feelings for him on the DL.

Book Description:

He was hot. And charming. And a total fake.

Destiny couldn’t help but like Eli. He was cute and always knew what to say to make her pulse race. But she was dating Jack so she kept her distance. Too bad Jack was treating her like a jerk.

When she finally decided to dump the jerk so she could go out with Eli, she overhears Eli talking on the phone and finds out the truth. Eli was not actually into her. He was being paid to flirt with her.

Destiny swears she will never speak to Eli again. But he won’t stop. Her heart is torn. Can she trust the impostor? 

Tomboy (The Hartigans #3) by Avery Flynn

My current read: I been wanting to read this book; I love reading tomboy books…. but I’m still waiting on a book with Finn and some girl🤷🏽‍♀️…. Tomboy by @averyflynn.

Book Review:

***There’s a few spoilers thrown around here and there in this review*****
This book was awesome. I loved the Fallon is what Zack definitely needed, especially when it came to trusting and removing those walls he builds up around his heart. It’s funny how they already met, but up until he got sick they decided that they wanted each other. But you look at it you can know someone forever and once you two get together and hang out a connection happens. That is what happened with Zack and Fallon. Her parents and siblings already knew that Fallon and Zack were dating before they both figured it out which was kind of funny.

Plus; I understood why Fallon told those reporters what really happened between Zack and his stank bucket parents. Because for one he wouldn’t have done anything about it; which I thought was stupid his teammates would’ve cared and wanted to be around him regardless of his fuck-ups especially when it came to them losing. But you look at it all that crap on Zack mind with his parents is what messed up his focus along with when it got out about that fake crap his parents put out about his where they (Ice Knights) had a hard winning the game… but in the end I was glad that they ended up locked away for what they did they were some piece of crap.

I think a lot needs to be looked into younger kids – teenagers deals and contracts because people be taking their money. I am like Zack, “trust no one”…

But in the end everything came out good for him he got the loved that he needed from his teammates, Fallon and even Lucy. Including a baby…. and marriage., but what was funny was when they both wanted to ask each other about “will you marry me” 🤣 she had the ring in the muffins he Hhatesand he had the ring In his pocket…

Book Description:

How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box?

Ice Knights defenseman Zach Blackburn has come down with the flu, and my BFF—his PR manager—begs me to put my nursing degree to use and get him back to health. Of course she would call in a favor for the most hated man in Harbor City.

But when he’s finally on the mend and I’m sneaking out of his place, everything goes sideways. Paparazzi spot me and pictures, plus accusations that I slept with him, fly faster than a hockey puck.

At first, all of Harbor City wants my blood—or to give me a girlie-girl makeover. But then…the team finally wins a game. And now this fickle town wants me with the big jerk twenty-four seven.

Argh. I never slept with him the first time! But no one will listen. Then the grumpy bastard goes and promises to break his no-fan-appearances rule to help raise money for a free health clinic—but only if I’m rink-side at every game. That’s not a deal I can turn down.

But when the team keeps winning, and I realize there’s more to him than his bad reputation, suddenly remembering to keep my real hands off my fake date gets harder and harder to do. 

The Game You Play (Rixon Raiders #2) by L.A. Cotton

ARC… I’m just loving this book. Excited 😜 I get the chance to read it before it comes out!!! I will say I am not disappointed .. just glad I don’t want to punch Jason six weeks to Sunday. But Tractor I mean Lewis; I definitely want to stomp his face in the mood & kick in the crack of the xxx swear I’ll credit card him HARD……😹! Can’t stand that freaking pop tart! What a clown 🤡.. But still, want to punch Jace in the knees for the games he plays with Flick! But I already want book 3… which my mind is thinking is about Asher and xxxx…. ••••• by the way, this book is coming 📖….SEPTEMBER 17th•••••• 

Book Review:

****Spoilers; but not that many****

I got to read this early before it’s released on September 17th… I got an ARC for an honest review.

& I will say this after reading book two and especially the ending I just had to read book two and was wishing it came out earlier than September but then got my chance actually to read it before the release date.

I can say I wasn’t disappointed at all only problem I had was with Lewis; he was just horrible like the hate he had for Jace was ridiculous. & to top it off he still LOSE regardless because of what Jenny (I really don’t care to remember her name) 🤣 I think it’s Jenna but back to what I was saying the things he and Jenna did was horrible especially when he tried to out Jace and Flick with those pictures that Jenna took of them at the lake.

Just because of what Jace did to Amiee which did forgive him for because of how she made him turn out to be. But he became a better person when he got with Felicity. She made him a better person. I also glad that Felicity followed her own dreams rather than following her parent’s dreams.

Not only that I was glad when Jason realize his feelings; though he pushes her away to protect her. But still, in the end, the piece of crap Tracker dust, still knew he had feelings for Felicity because of Tracker dust side trash. But in the end, I was like FINALLY Jason you figured it out and wanted to be with the girl, even by protecting her when it came to the pictures, but also felt bad for Asher, though he was the one that decided to take the fall. But with the help of Maya, I don’t think it’ll be too bad, especially when he plays for college football team once they graduate.

P.S. I can’t wait for Asher and Maya story……Book #3
