Never Kiss a Rockstar by Sarah Darlington

My Rating: 5 Stars
Series: Yes,The NEVER TRUST Series Yes, #2
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Subject: Two lonely and broken souls.

Dani Mills, drummer of the world-famous band, Sunset Revival, doesn’t have time for romance. Touring with her bandmates across the country, she’s content with meaningless sex: one-night-stands, no kissing, no personal details. These are her rules…and there are never exceptions.

John Michaels lives a life of seclusion in Corolla, North Carolina. He works, eats, and sleeps—and is perfectly content with his lifestyle. He doesn’t have the time, or energy, to deal with people. Or relationships. Especially women relationships.

When Sunset Revival gets stranded on the beach, it’s John who is asked for shelter. With his sexy-as-sin good looks—covered in ink with blue eyes so deep they shine—Dani finds herself desperate for one night in his bed. That’s all either of them wants, really…one night, no-strings, no promise of tomorrow. 

Yet, when one night turns into two, both find themselves breaking their own rules. Thrust into a whirlwind of passion and desire, the pair struggle to maintain the upper hand, with John learning the hardest lesson of all…never kiss a Rockstar. 

**NEVER KISS A ROCKSTAR can be read as a standalone, or as the second book in Sarah Darlington's NEVER TRUST Series.

Yes, I'm game.

Another amazing story!

Stardom hasn’t made her life any easier, Dani is hiding, and she is really good at it. She has her heart so well protected, that there is no way anyone can even get close enough to get a glimpse of her real self. 

John has been hiding too, he escaped his past and now he is just gliding through life, he doesn’t like people close, or people at all, so there is no risk of anyone ruining the peaceful life he created for himself, until she shows up.

Danielle isn’t like anything he has ever seen before; she is a mystery and he can’t get enough of her. She sounds and looks like trouble and she probably is, but he can’t help himself.

John is an unexpected surprise, she is ready to use him and move on; but what she s definitely not ready for, is the kind of attraction they are sharing. 

Will Dani Mills be able to break her own rules and give this mystery man a chance? Or will their secrets be too much and end up destroying them?

The first book in a brand new emotional and angsty new adult romance series from L A Cotton is live!!!

Eva and Rafe's story was cute and entertaining. The book is a really fast read and it keeps you engaged all the time in the story.

Eva has been through a lot and is not sure she deserves to still be here. While Rafe's demons are still hidden, we can tell they are the really bad kind. Can they make it with all that darkness surrounding them?

It is an instant love kind of story, super strong connection in seconds and bleeding hearts in weeks, which makes sense since they are children.

We are left with a little cliffhanger waiting to see what Rafe's whole deal is and if Eva is making the right choice.

I love rockstar romances so it was a really enjoyable book and I can't wait to know what happens in their story.

“I made you some hot chocolate.” He offered me the mug and I took a sip, the smooth rich liquid warming my insides.

“How very rock star of you.”

“I try.” His gray eyes twinkled with laughter. “Come here.”

I went to Rafe, and he eased the mug out of my hand, placing it on the ledge. His long fingers brushed my jaw, moving along my neck and into my hair as he tilted my face up to his. “I’ve wanted to do this again all night.”

My hands wound around his neck as he kissed me, his lips brushing over mine with a heated desperation I felt right down to my toes. We stumbled back as Rafe’s hand slipped to the small of my back pushing me closer as he pressed me against the wall.

“Rafe…” I panted and he broke the kiss.

“You want me to stop?” His eyes searched mine, his pupils blown with lust.

“N- no.”

“Thank fuck.” He dived for me again, attacking my mouth with fervent need. One of his hands slid to my throat, stroking the skin there, his lips chasing his fingers. Sucking and biting, sending shocks of pleasure zinging through me.

“Where have you been all my life?” Rafe whispered into my neck, his words so low I wasn’t sure they were for me. But I’d heard them. Like a gunshot to the heart they’d impacted me.

It was crazy.

We didn’t know each other. We didn’t know any of the important stuff. But I was falling. Hurtling towards the ground hoping, praying, he’d be there to catch me.

“Eva, tell me what you want?” He lifted his face, eyes dark and stormy and so full of need. I swallowed hard.

“This.” I pulled his face to mine, kissing him deeply, rubbing myself against him shamelessly. His mouth curved, and he pushed his head to mine, forcing me further against the wall. My hands pressed at my sides, steadying myself as he hooked one of his hands under my thigh, hitching my leg around his hip. I could feel him thick and hard beneath his jeans, but I wasn’t ready for that.

What happens after happily ever after?
Sirens in Bliss, a steamy new romance in the Nights in Bliss, Colorado Series from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak, is available now!

I don’t have any clue how to review this book, I was so excited to read about all my favorite couples, so much love and craziness. 

For a moment I felt melancholic, we have lived with these characters for what is seems like forever, we have seen their love and families grow, and we have been with them while they fought for their lives.

Bliss has become such a happy place where I love escaping to.  Where true love finds a way, where strong men love their women, sometimes as a team ๐Ÿ˜‰ and where the strongest women find their ultimate power to destroy their enemies… Home. 

Seeing all of them together and getting to read about my favorite couples was priceless. All time fave the Originals Jack, Sam and Abby and crazy Max and Rye and the sweet Rachel. I still remember reading about them for the first time, such intensity, it made me want to go back to those books and meet them all over again.

The author has achieved the ultimate writer’s dream, I am invested in these characters, I cry with them and I feel their happiness, and I’m sure I will be unhappy once it’s over. 
She gave us such lovable characters, that we couldn’t help it.

Back to this book, it wouldn’t be Bliss without some drama, and trust me… there’s enough!

Marriage trouble, self-steam age related issues, and the past knocking on their doors… nothing a good Dom can’t fix. And we sure have enough of those there!

Shelley turned her head, looking between them both. “You know I thought it was weird that neither one of you looks a thing like your father.” Wolf shrugged. He was happy about that. “Guess we took after Ma’s side.” “Nope. I spent the afternoon looking through pictures of Cassidy’s family while we played with beets. They’re all small. She said Robert’s people were, too.” Leo sighed. “We’re not aliens, Shell.” Oh, god, had his mother gotten to her? “No alien DNA here.” She shrugged, a teasing smile on her lips. “I don’t know. You seem smarter and faster and more agile than the normal human. And hey, I wouldn’t mind if my kids got an edge because their dads had some freaky genetics.” She laughed and threw her arms around Leo, kissing him soundly. She turned and gave Wolf the same treatment. He could actually see several play scenarios where being half-alien might be fun. “Hey, I have about thirty minutes before I have to drink beet juice. Why don’t we have one last crazy fling before we’re boring old married people?” Shelley asked, a glint in her eye. Wolf knew just the place. “There’s a big closet where Zane keeps the dry goods.” He started to lead them back, finding the door and hauling them all in. He shut the door and turned on the small light. Thank god Lucy, Zane’s waitress, was as obsessively, compulsively clean as his brother. The storage room was pin neat and had enough space for what he needed to do. “Shouldn’t we turn the lights off?” Shelley asked. Leo stared at her. “Shouldn’t you take your clothes off?” Yep, he was already in Dom mode. That was plain to see. “Hurry, baby. He’ll spend all his time spanking you and then we won’t get to the part where I feel some small amount of relief for my aching dick.” It was only the truth. He’d been hard for days. Well, the whole sweat lodge thing had actually been a blessing since his cock had shriveled up at the thought of being alone in a sweaty, naked place with his brother and de facto stepfather, and his stepfather had been talking sex. It had been damn funny until he got a picture of it in his head. He was actually happy now that he was hard again. For a couple of minutes, he thought his cock might be dead. “Well, we can’t have that, can we?” Shelley pulled the tie on her wrap dress and was handing it to Leo in no time at all. Her gorgeous curves were on full display in a sexy black bra and some killer heels. No panties. His girl had learned that lesson long ago. Leo sighed, his hand covering her shoulders and sliding down to her breasts. “Do you have any idea how much we’ve missed these breasts?” Wolf flicked the back clasp of her bra because the situation was far too desperate for a ton of playtime. His brother liked to warm up, but Wolf was already on fire. “We sat around drinking beer last night and moaning about how long it had been since we’ve seen you naked, baby.” A shake in Leo’s voice gave away the fact that he was on edge, too. “It’s been eight days, thirteen hours, and twenty-four minutes.” Her head fell back against Wolf’s shoulder as she laughed. “Well, you two certainly know how to make a girl feel wanted.”

Trying to Score (Hot Jocks #3) by Kendall Ryan

My Rating: 4 Stars
Series: Hot Jocks #3.
Sex Scenes: Yes.

Teddy King excels at many things. Playing hockey. Check. Scoring on and off the ice. Check. Being stupidly attractive ... Double check.

Despite his demanding schedule, he still finds time to annoy me. I knew him way back when. Before he was the guy everyone wanted a piece of, he was just a rebellious college co-ed and one of my more energetic study partners.

But secrets have a way of getting out, and a steamy encounter from our college days (that we probably shouldn't have filmed) is about to cause a major scandal. Unless we can work together to stop it.

Teddy’s no stranger to hard work … but the thing he wants most?

Is me.

Note: This high-heat standalone is chock-full of scorching banter and steamy good times. He's a testosterone-dripping hockey player who wants a second chance. She's a tough as nails attorney intent on making partner. Frienemies to lovers. No cliffhanger. Enjoy!

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all new stand-alone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is perfect for you!

What would you do if something stupid you’ve done years ago, comes back to haunt you and threatens to destroy everything you’ve built for yourself?

Killing Teddy was not an option, but I’m sure it crossed Sarah’s mind, how could he be so dumb! And why would he still have the video?

Teaming up with his college hook up and friend seems like a good idea, to fight against this threat, but getting this close to Teddy might change everything, and will put her in a situation, too hard to resist.

I loved this book, and truly enjoyed them, they were perfect together, it’s nice to see characters that built up their friendship before falling hard in love with each other.

They know everything about each other and what do you know? That old flame was still burning, even more intense than before.

Will they be able to keep up this charade to save their careers or will their secret destroy everything?

My Rating: 5 Stars
Series: Covet #1
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Subject: His life for mine


My estranged twin brother, Julian, was always the wonder boy - and soon-to-be CEO of our ruthless father's corporation. My mother and me? Left behind. Now, years after tearing our family apart, my father dares to ask "me" for a favor? Pretend to be Julian while he fights to survive a tragic accident. It can save the company. Nobody will be the wiser. It'll be our secret.

I can play Dad's favorite. I'll do anything for Julian. And for my mother, who'll want for nothing.

But this double life comes with a beauty of a hitch: my very real feelings for Julian's fiancรฉe, Isobel. Not only am I betraying Julian, I'm deceiving a woman I love. She doesn't suspect a thing. As lies compound, lines are crossed and loyalties tested, all I can ask myself is. . .what have I done?

Because sooner or later something's got to give. There's no way I'm giving up Isobel. But once the truth is exposed, it might not be my choice at all.

Twins separated by their dad’s greed, once brothers now strangers, they will have to trust each other in order to survive.

Bridge has hated everything related to his father’s family as far as he can remember. His dad broke his mom and he is sure he has now broken Jules too. He promised to protect them both, but he has failed him and now the time has come for him to stay true to his words and save Jules world and dream, if it’s the last thing he does.

But making a deal with the devil has its price, and he is soon to learn that sometimes the price might be too high, and he might lose everything he was trying to protect.

Isobel is going insane, that is the only explanation she can come up with. He is not the same guy she has gotten used to, there’s a different light coming from him, he touches her soul in a way that he has never done before. Could a life-threatening accident have brought back the love of her life? An even better version than the one she originally met? Why does it feel as if it is a different love altogether?

How can Julian forgive them for the ultimate betrayal, even though they went in with their eyes closed? 

Their father’s plan might to destroy them both is in motion, and it’s up to them to make the next inning move.

Secrets, love and lust make this story and amazing one to say the least. Rachel has done it again, she has created a drama we can’t stay away from, and I can’t wait to read the next book.
