The Valentine's Arrangement by Kelsie Leverich Review


The “emotional, spicy-hot story” (Belle’s Book Bag) that propelled Kelsie Leverich to the New York Times bestseller list!

Tattoo artist Ronnie Clark is counting the days until Valentine’s Day is over. Ronnie doesn’t do romance. She doesn’t do flowers or dates, and she sure as hell doesn’t do love—not anymore. Love leads to heartbreak, and she’s vowed never to let herself get hurt again.

Sergeant First Class Kale Emerson is home on his mid-tour leave from Iraq, but he only has one thing on his mind—returning to his soldiers to finish leading their mission. He’s dedicated to his men and to his country, and he’s not interested in getting wrapped up in a distracting relationship…but casual sex, that’s a different story. From the moment he sees Ronnie, he wants her. And he agrees to her terms—no romance, no fluff—just passion.

But as their sexual chemistry ignites, the lines of their arrangement get blurry, and Ronnie starts to push Kale away. And when Kale realizes he’s found his match in this razor-tongued, gorgeous woman who is hell bent against love, winning her heart could be the toughest battle he has ever fought.
My Thoughts:
5/5 Stars
Loved, Loved, Loved this book. Once I started, I couldn't put it down... 
The storyline flowed beautifully and the angst had you begging for more.
The characters make this book amazing!  Ronnie is beautiful, witty, smart mouthed and knows what she wants. Kale is a sexy as f*ck military man, who likes control. Together they are a romantic whirlwind of sexual tension and raw emotion. Their pasts push them apart and unfortunate events bring them together.
If you love an erotic read with a bold storyline, memorable characters, and an all consuming romance this book is for you! It will rip all kinds of emotion from you and have you wishing it never ended.

Room For You by Beth Ehemann Review

Four years ago, my dreams were shattered in an instant.

I tried to pick up the pieces and glue them back together the best I knew how, but something was always missing.

A father for my two girls.

But then, Brody Murphy landed on my doorstep, literally. He was a carefree, playful hockey player who barged into my life and messed with my head. He left me more confused than I had ever been.

What if the one thing I thought I needed was the only thing holding me back?

My Thoughts:
5/5 Stars!
What happens when the one thing you know walks out leaving
you with two daughters and an empty heart?

Kacie spends all of her time being a mom and helping run an Inn with her mother. When sexy pro hockey player Brody walks in looking for a room her life is turned upside down. He is good looking, charming, and great with her girls. She wants to leave him into her heart, but he will have to break down her guard to earn her love.
Together they embark on a journey of second chances and romance.
This book sucks you from page one and has you begging for more at the end. The writing is great and the storyline is packed with plot.
There is tons of suspense at the end, that I didn't expect. It made me fall hard for Brody and had me pushing for a Happily Ever After.
I can't wait to pick up book 2!

Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover Review

This novella is a companion novel to the Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone. A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.

My Thoughts:
4/5 Stars
This was a great read! It was about first love and the struggles that come along with it.
In the beginning you get a glimpse of Daniel's life with Cinderella. I loved that part. It was so romantic to see them fall for one another without even seeing each other. Later he meets Six who reminds him of Cinderella in every way. Together they face troubles to build a lasting relationship.

The Author did a fabulous job creating a beautiful love story.

Highly Recommend, but please keep in mind it is short because it's a novella.

Unravel by Calia Read Review

Six months ago, I was happy. I was simply Naomi Carradine.

One month ago, I was admitted into a psych ward.

Yesterday, Lachlan visited me. Kissed me. And told me that I’m starting to lose my mind.

Hours later, Max haunted my thoughts, reminding me I’m not crazy and that he needs my help.

A few minutes ago, I drifted further from reality, trying to unravel the past.

And now...everyone thinks I’m insane. But, I know he's real, and I know he needs me.

Do you believe me?


My Thoughts:
4.5/5 Stars
I have two words for this book... Mind F*ck!
Unravel will take you on an emotional rollercoaster.
Every time you think you know what will happen something else comes up leaving you empty.
The author does a superb job at making you feel every event in this book. Your brain will feel fried after reading and your mind will be thinking about this book days later.
I don't want to give away too much, but the characters are amazing. They have depth and emotion. Naomi is in a love triangle and trying to cope with her friends traumatic life.
Lachlan comes and goes, Max is forever.
The beginning of this book is a tad slow, but don't give up because once she starts telling her story you wont be able to stop reading.
Highly Recommend

RAW by Belle Aurora Review

***Author Note: This is not a love story. This is a story of love gone wrong.***

Growing up the way I did, you’d think I’d be more screwed up than what I actually am.
Soon as I turned sixteen, I left that bump in the road I called home and took my chances on the street.
Best decision I ever made.
Now, at the age of twenty six, I’m educated, employed and damn good at my job.

My friends have become my family. Like me, they know what it’s like to grow up unloved.
But the saying is true.
The world makes way for those who know where they are going.
That’s me.
I know where I’m going and I’ll get there eventually. On my own terms and at my own pace.
But then there’s him.
I feel his eyes on me. I see him hiding in plain sight. He watches me.
He makes me feel.
It’s unconventional.
But it’s real.
I’m sure you’re wondering how a person falls in love with their stalker.
So am I.
This isn’t a story.
This is my life.

My Thoughts:
5/5 Stars
HOLY SHIT! This book was so good. It was suspenseful, romantic, erotic, and everything else .... The storyline is unique and the characters suck you in. I freaking loved Twitch. He was so damaged, yet so hot.

The suspense in this story will have you biting your nails... It is just as the title says "RAW". The intimacy between Lexi and Twitch is different and almost dangerous. They are addicted to one another and their connection is rough.
This book will leave you breathless at times and please remember this is not your typical romantic read. It is harsh and the ending.... Hmm the ending will gut you!

I highly recommend it

Be With Me by J. Lynn Review

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Wait for You
Do Teresa and Jase have a real shot at getting together or will life get in the way?
Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she's in love with her big brother's best friend, but he hasn't spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, life-changing kiss. Then she got out of a terrible relationship. Now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It's time for plan B: college. And maybe she'll have a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.
Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he's not telling anyone—especially not his best friend's incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn't have time for a relationship. But it doesn't help that all he can think about is kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.
As they're thrown together more and more, Jase and Teresa can't keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they're willing to risk to be together and what they're willing to lose if they're not. . . .

My Thoughts:
5/5 Stars
I have a serious girl crush on J. Lynn right now.
Honestly... Wait for You & Be with Me are two of my all time favorite reads. They gave me book hangovers and are sticking with me days later.
Be with Me is about Cam's sister Theresa and his best friend, Jase. They have experienced an instant romantic connection and while feelings grow... secrets are exposed. As they try to keep their relationship on the down low, suspense surrounds them.

This book brought so much emotion to the table.
I felt for Theresa and Jase through the entire book and became consumed by each chapter. I loved the cupcakes! Each time they got together I waited to see what kind it was. I also loved the intimate parts. Each one was special because they weren't happening a million times throughout the book.
I highly recommend this book to everyone!
It is a great read with lots of depth.

Bound by Lorelei James Review


In the new Mastered series by New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James, a woman’s desire to shatter her inhibitions leaves her unprepared for where that erotic journey will take her….

Former small-town girl Amery Hardwick is living her dream as a graphic designer in Denver, Colorado. She’s focused on building her business, which leaves little time for dating—not that she needs a romantic entanglement to fulfill her. When her friend signs up for a self-defense class as part of her recovery after an attack, Amery joins her for support. That’s where she meets him.

Ronin Black, owner of the dojo, is so drawn to Amery that he takes over her training—in public and in private. The enigmatic Ronin pushes Amery’s boundaries from the start, and with each new tryst, Amery becomes addicted to the pleasure and to him. But when Amery senses Ronin is hiding something, she questions her total trust in him, despite the undeniable thrill of his possession….

My Thoughts:
2.5/5 Stars

When I started this book I was immediately sucked in. The story was packed with storyline and I was interested. However, about half way through the book the storyline faded and sex scenes took over. Every time Ronin came into the picture I was hoping for plot, but instead got erotica. I understand that this book is in that category so I should expect that... I just wish there was more depth to it.

I wanted to finish this book, but I didn't. I would however recommend this book to those looking for an erotica. The writing was good and the characters were very likeable.
