Finding Him (Covet #2) by Rachel Van Dyken

Copy of VanDyken-Finding Him-27420-CV-FT-V4.jpg
My Rating: 5 Stars

Series: Yes, Covet #2
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Subject: Second love is the true love.

A shattered family, broken hearts, and healing love. 

Finding Him, an all-new standalone in the Covet duet by New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken is LIVE!

Coming out of a coma was one hell of a wake-up call. While I was in the dark, my estranged twin brother, Bridge, had replaced me in the company I owned and swept up my fiancรฉe in the takeover. With my ruthless reputation, can I blame them for falling in love? I have to look long and hard at where I’ve been and where I’m headed. Alone time? The universe has other plans.

Our family’s secluded Vermont cabin comes with a gorgeous—if at first unwelcoming—surprise. She’s renter Keaton Westbrook, a social media superstar struggling with her own private grief. As a winter storm bears down, we’ve found something to keep us warm—an intimacy neither of us expected and both of us need.

After we say goodbye, what happens then? Keaton and I are longing to reconcile with our painful pasts. I can’t bear to do it without her. Is it too much to ask of fate to give us a second chance at life and love?

Finding Him - RB banner.jpg

I want to say I hated the Book and that Julian was a douche, but I can’t, because that’s intrinsically who he is, who he has become after dealing by himself with his father all these years. 

And now he is hurt, there is something that broke after he woke up from the coma and realized that life moved on while he was asleep, and he doesn’t know how to deal with it. 

He is angry at the world, but mostly at himself, for destroying everything that was important in his life, and missing out on being with the people that matter. 
Now that is mom is gone, he has nothing to live for, but he is not a quitter, so he will find a way to at least survive while life passes him by.

The cabin might be just what he needs to reconnect with his past and find himself, of course he is not expecting her to be there.

Keaton fights him from the starts, she challenges him and doesn’t let him get away with anything, and that is irresistible for him.

He is used to people falling to their feet when they know who he is, but she is definitely not impressed.

She has been through hell and being is this cabin was what he wanted for her, so she is not about to get kicked out buy some rich idiot. She expected he will be an empty vessel, only full of himself, but he surprised her by being exactly what she needs.

He is ready to risk it all and open his heart… is she ready too?

Crossing the Line (Hot Jocks #4) by Kendall Ryan

My Rating: 5 Stars
Series: Yes, Hot Jocks #4
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Subject: No turning back
Recovering from a pulled groin muscle isn’t exactly how I planned to spend my much-needed summer vacation.

But I’ll admit, being nursed back to health by my gorgeous friend Bailey, who’s just graduated from medical school, doesn’t exactly sound like a hardship.

We spend a week together at my family’s beach house, a week of swimming and barbecues, a week of entertaining my little cousins and sleeping right across the hall from each other. A week of watching Bailey grow closer with my mom and sisters, and my wacky but lovable grandma. A week of enjoying Bailey tending to me—which is saying something, because it involves a lot of shoving ice packs into my underwear and taping up sore muscles.

She’s funny and kind, and after just being myself for the first time in a long time, I find my walls come tumbling down. But when Bailey says she’s not looking for a relationship, I’m bound and determined to be more than just the fun hookup who sprained his groin a second time—this time with her.

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all-new standalone 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 for you!

(Books can be enjoyed in any order.) 

There hasn’t been any other people more perfect for each other!

 Asher and Bailey are good friends and their chemistry is off the hook! It will take a leap of faith to make them collide and after that there’s no turning back.

Bailey is busy busy busy, she has no time for anything else besides her career, and she is fine with it. Okay yes, she is lonely, but she is definitely not looking for a relationship, she doesn’t have the time for that. Asher has always been on her radar, I mean… he is perfection! All abs and muscles, who wouldn’t be captivated by that?

But he is a playboy and has a different girl in his bed every day and that is so not her type!
Asher is out of Hockey for a while and being in such close quarters with Bailey might prove to be impossible to do and still resist her.

I personally truly enjoy when the characters realize that they’ve known this person for a long time but never really gave them a chance. And now they find themselves having many things in common and discovering all kinds of irresistible quirks.

A beautiful story, with just enough spice to make it a super sexy one as well.

Never Love a Rockstar (Rockstars in Kill Devil Hills #3) by Sarah Darlington

My Rating: 5 Stars
Series: Yes, Rockstars in Kill Devil Hills #3
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Subject: Meant to be

No, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

Rebecca Cooper knows what dating a rockstar is like. It’s late nights, months on the road, and constantly sharing your man with everyone else. It’s coming second. She’s been there, done that, and walked away with a broken heart. So how it is possible she’s put herself in this position again? In love with yet another rockstar. This time, his brother.

Luke Mills is bitter. He’s bogged down by years of guilt and heartache. He goes through the motions. He’s rough with everyone around him. And then Rebecca walks back into his life. Sweet Rebecca. She shouldn’t be here. She shouldn’t have come back. But Luke sees her and can’t help the way his heart wants to respond. But, no, not in a million years—he’d never let her have a spot in his frozen heart again. Not when she was always his brother’s girl.

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


Author: Sarah Darlington

It was actually a big surprise to start liking Rebecca. We met her being the home wrecker that almost destroys Caleb’s relationship, but now we get to understand her a little bit more. 

What is going on between her and Luke, what happened all those years ago, and why hasn’t she come back before now?

Is she just after their money or are her feelings for Luke real? That’s the question plaguing everyone around them, but Luke never hesitates, he trusts her, their bond was a lot stronger than everyone thought all those years back and now he in it for the long haul.

He has loved her from afar and now it’s his time, he still feels guilty, but she is his for the first time, and he is not letting go.
