Ummm, prepared to get slayed, gutted, and cry your ugliest!
Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.
From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience.
Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover. He was my soul mate. We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.
Until he changed.
And I believed I was no longer good enough.
Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.
And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.
Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.
But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.
I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?
Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?
Reading one of my hall of fame books by @authorgeorgiacates.
Dear Agony is a must read even if your emotions get jerked around several times...sooo worth it!
You've been my shadow, following me through childhood—filling my days and nights with terror and uncertainty. You cleverly disguised yourself as some form of pain or suffering as I grew into a young woman. We were unwavering companions… until I severed our ties.
I traded homelessness on the streets of New Orleans for a luxurious bed covered by the finest linens.
I traded dumpster diving for dinner in the finest restaurants.
I traded myself to a stranger—Bastien Pascal.
I have a good life within my platonic and mutually beneficial companionship with Bash.
He’s my friend. My mentor. My roommate.
Until everything changes.
I’m not supposed to get goosebumps when his hand brushes my skin.
I’m not supposed to be eager for his soothing touch following one of my nightmares.
I’m not supposed to think about what might happen if I reached out to him in the darkness.
Falling in love with him? Preposterous… unavoidable.
Agony, why are you back with a vengeance to rob me of this life I’ve come to love so dearly?
I’m finally happy. Don’t ruin this for me.
In this epic love story, Dear Agony forges a connection between an unlikely pair—a beautiful rose entwined in barbed wire and a shipwreck sinking into the darkest depths of the ocean. This agonizing romantic novel poses some gut-wrenching questions: What does a woman do when the man she loves is planning his own demise? And how far will she go to give him something to live for?
Omg the angst was killing me and I wanted to slap some sense into Machlan! Oh Peck, I really hope you change your mind about Molly...we shall see in the next book!
Gosh I love reading @tlswanauthor
novels! GYM JUNKIE is Brock Marx’s story and damn this guy is alpha on steroids! Tully is the beautiful good girl that gets ‘corrupted’ by the Alpha-hole (in Tully-speak) and whew what a way to get corrupted!! As with all TL Swan’s novels, you ride a roller coaster full of scorching heat, action, and hair pulling angst...and at the end, you’re asking to go on it again 🤣! 🙌🏼🔥😍❤️
Thanks for the love @_wordswithatwist
and for perking me up before I head into my night shift 💕🌠
Thank you @lisawbecker
for the opportunity to read Links. Gosh I really felt like Charlotte growing up. I didn’t have her thick glasses, but I grew up not having much and wasn’t part of the ‘in crowd.’ Honestly, if I could have bypassed middle and high school, I would have...the growing pains were terrible at times. In middle school, a group of boys in my class called me Kansas because I was flat-chested. In high school, I remember sitting in my chemistry class and the girls behind me were talking about how black and navy should never be worn together (I wore black and navy that day). Unlike Charlotte, Garrett was the high school heartthrob...the Jake Ryan to Charlotte’s Sam. Unfortunately, Garrett never saw Charlotte in that light in high school. He was the typical player jock with a flavor of the week. They run into each other again 15 yrs later and all those feelings come back but does Charlotte want to let go of past insecurities and trust the ‘new’ Garrett? This is definitely a must read with all the feels!
In high school, Charlotte Windham went through a typical ugly duckling phase - glasses and all, while harboring a crush on Garrett Stephens, the school's athletic heartthrob. Fifteen years later, Charlotte and Garrett have a chance encounter at a Los Angeles restaurant. However, this time around, Charlotte has leveled the playing field. She’s a bestselling novelist and no longer “Glasses,” the humiliating nickname Garrett gave her. She’s a catch and, thanks to corrective eye surgery, it’s not just her eyes that see better…so does her heart! Garrett hasn’t fared poorly either, transforming from teen heartbreaker to adult lothario and is now a successful professional golfer suffering from a possible career-ending injury. Can Charlotte forgive Garrett for his past ways, and more recent Don Juan lifestyle? And, can Garrett change his ways for a second chance with Charlotte, who may just be perfect for him?
I’ve been on such a reading HIGH and this is one reason why **happy dance 💃 **
I anxiously awaited the release of Gorgeous by @authorkristymarie
, because her first book, Commander in Briefs, was soooo goooood! Cade Jameson stole my heart with his profoundly broken self. Although Breck was dealing with her own loss, she made it her mission to be Cade’s savior. My fists were pumping up and down for these two through their struggles: Cade with his demons and Breck with her secrets. The slow burn was worth it! I loved reading about ‘the gang’ again. A house full of dudes has got to be full of mischief, laughter, and eye candy of course 😍. All the characters (except for Theo and Thad) have suffered losses and are broken, but have found family on the plantation, courtesy of Anniston, Commander and total badass. I feel like I’m right there laughing and crying with them. I can’t wait for the next books!!
My name is Brecklyn Brannon, and I’m not who I claim to be.
A year ago, I packed up my promising life in the city for a man I saw only once.
Accepting a temporary job with Cade and four blazing hot veterans should have been my way in.
Except, Cade acts like he would rather be tortured than speak to me.
He can resist all he wants, but I made a promise that I intend to keep.
Even if it costs me everything.
I’ve watched her for over a year.
There’s something about her that seems familiar… but now that she’s living here for two weeks, I could care less what it is.
I just want her gone.
Breck is temptation personified, and some lines can't be crossed.
I'm Major Cade Jameson, and I made a promise, too.
One that I can't break.
No matter how hard it gets.
Gorgeous is a stand-alone in a series but it is highly recommended you read the books in order for a better reading experience. #freeonkindleunlomited #mustread
Yikes! Right outside our door! 😳😵SuperDad rescued us!
Happy Release Day @authorgeorgiacates
! Redemption is LIVE! Gosh, I have been patiently waiting for Leith and Lorna’s story because of their push and pull relationship mentioned in the previous books. @authorgeorgiacates
does not disappoint and gives these two the happiness, steam, and passion they are due 😍🔥! This can be read as a stand-alone, but trust me it is sooooo worth reading ALL the books in the series. Sinclair, Jamie, Kieran, Leith, and Mitch in a room make for the best panty-melting...correction, panty-exploding party. 😍🔥🔥🤩🙌🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Thank you @authorlmreign
for the opportunity to read ACE. I may have read one or two MC related books before reading this one, and after reading about MCs and the Syndicate, I know I’ve been missing out! Cole and Mila’s story has second-chance love, action, mega-angst, heat, and uber UST. My emotions ran high as I read the pages leading up to that first meeting after 5 yrs, knowing it was going to be intense! The intensity between the two lasted throughout the entire story! I can’t for for the next book! ❤️🔥👍🏼👍🏼🙌🏼🤩😍
Blurb: He wanted to save her. She didn't need to be saved.
Mila Rogers isn't the kind of girl that sticks around, especially when it comes to Cole "Ace" Davenport when he left her five years before. Just up and left.
No phone call.
Cole has had a rough life. Unbelievably rough. The son of the Desert Angels MC President doesn't get to have it easy. So when the girl he let get away ends up at the same party, he wants to explain. Apologize. No one deserves to be left the way she had.
With her own secrets lurking beneath the surface, Mila wants nothing to do with him. Until the Syndicate decides a mutual truce with the reckless biker club is necessary for a job. Mila will do her job, of course, but that doesn't stop Cole from pursuing her. Or does it?
Soon the two are engaged in a battle of wills, satisfying the innate desire that still lingers after all this time. But what will happen when the darkest of secrets threaten the brittle truce?
What's done in darkness will come to light.
Yay! Happy Cover Reveal @authorgeorgiacates
!! Leith and Lorna captured our hearts in the earlier books and now they have theirs. Gah! I can’t wait to read it!!! Blurb: I was on my way to having everything that I wanted… until I opened that door. That’s when my entire world shattered. In a single second, my happy life was gone.
She broke my heart. There, I admit it. But a Fellowship man doesn’t mourn the loss of a woman. He moves on to the next one. And the next. But what I quickly discover is that it doesn’t matter how many women I’m with. I’ll never find one who can replace Lorna Frazier.
I’ve been an arse, doing everything within my power to hurt her. And I’ve been successful at it. But it doesn’t heal the pain of losing the woman that I love. She is my everything, and I’m nothing without her.
Apart, we’re weak. Together, we’re strong.
Apart, we’re in hell. Together, we’re in heaven.
Apart, we’re broken. Together, we’re whole.
I won’t give up on us. ***Redemption can be read as a standalone novel although it is a novel accompanying The Sin Trilogy. It is best enjoyed after reading The Sin Trilogy, Endurance: A Sin Series Standalone novel, and Unintended: A Sin Series Standalone novel.
Redemption: A Sin Series Standalone Novel by @GeorgiaCates
is releasing 9/18
❤️❤️❤️I love me a Kennedy Ryan novel. Complex characters with intricate issues and plights; heat and passion; and a well earned HEA. Her writing ensnares me and takes me on an emotional journey, temporarily forgetting about time passing and chores missed 🤷🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️. Block Shot had me at second chance romance 😍. I was rooting for Banner and Jared from the start and man, they both had their work cut out for them. Jared was the ultimate alpha shark who took no prisoners and abhorred anything hinting toward love...until he met his match in Banner. I felt such a kinship with Banner...having her drive and determination, but also having insecurities. She totally kicked ass blocking shots!!👍🏼👍🏼🙌🏼❤️🔥
Keanu in Much Ado About Nothing. He did not play the hero, but damn Gina he was super HOT! #drooling
It has been over a year since I joined Kindle Unlimited and it has been one of the best treats to myself. This duet by @laurencampbellbooks
was one of my first reads and it blew me away! It was so unique and twisted, but engrossing...I felt bad for Emily/Ivy and rooted for her through all the craziness and poor decisions she made. Everyone has a limit before snapping right? A must read for sure 👍🏼👍🏼. #freeonku
just made my FriYay! I read Binary when it was released, but now I get to own it! Broken lead male and female, heat with some kink, angst, and an HEA. 😍😍😍
clutch: a novel by @lisawbecker
: I loved Lisa’s creativity comparing Caroline's dating life to handbags. It is an interesting dating world out there (to say the least)...I hear so many dating stories through work and goodness she is spot on representing the types of men. Caroline's story was not only about dating, but also about leaving her small-town Southern roots to soul-search and pursue her dreams, while learning how to be assertive and self advocate. Mike was a mixture of best-friend, manwhore, and guardian angel for Caroline. I really wanted him to just make a move on Caroline, get all alpha on her and keep her. When there are blurred lines in a friendship, something is bound to happen and I am so glad they both realized their happily ever after was with each other. Aunt Mimi saw it coming :) Congratulations on winning the Romantic Comedy 2018 American Fiction Awards!
This book got lost in my Kindle Library, but I am soooo glad I found it!! @emeryroseauthor
, I loved Eden and Killian’s love story through their road bumps. I am also a sucker for alpha dudes. The heat was scorching 🔥🤩! I am anticipating the next book...Connor and Ava? Zeke and Hailey?
