Thanks

Love is the most dangerous obsession…

Skye Sullivan is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. She survived a brutal stalker and escaped his abduction, and now she is looking to the future—a future that includes Skye’s lover, billionaire Trace Weston. Skye thinks the danger is finally over for her.

She’s dead wrong.

When Trace’s past comes back to haunt him, Skye discovers that the man she loves isn’t quite who he seems to be. Trace has been leading a double-life. An ex-special forces agent, his military training turned him into the perfect killing machine. He made more than his share of enemies during his time in the military—and as he built his security empire—and one of those enemies is striking back.

He won’t lose her.

Skye is the one weapon that can be used against Trace—his only vulnerability. But he won’t let her go—he can’t. Trace will do anything necessary to protect Skye. Anything. Yet when she discovers the secrets that he’s tried to keep hidden, Skye’s pain and rage may send her running directly into the cross-hairs of a killer…

Shortest Books I've Read
 
Contemporary Romance
 
FREE
Locked (The Alpha Group Trilogy #1)
By Maya Cross
Pages: 130
 
Rating 4 Stars - Loved It
This is a trilogy so book 1 ends in a cliffhanger and they will get their happy ending in the last book.
 
Loved Sebastian (delicious dirty talker) and Sophia. The sexual tension and sex is hot and well written with light BDSM. I loved how they both are doing something that they never done before. He never dates as in wining and dining and she has never had a casual fling. I read book 2 but for some reason do not have a review. I see a re-read in my future.
 
 
 
$0.99
No Strings Attached (Falling For You Book 1)
By Nicolette Day
Pages: 62
 
Rating: 4 Stars - Loved It
Jace had me during the body shot scene with his over protective attitude.

Hayden: “Wait. What are you doing?”

Jace: “A shot.” He leaned close enough to whisper in her ear. “Or would you rather me beat the shit out of some poor guy for putting his mouth on you?”

 
Not only is best friends turn to lovers one of my favorite genre but an over protective best friend is a bonus. Hayden and Jace sure steamed up my e-reader and loved them together. The body shot scene is the best. I usually do not rate short novella’s more than 3 stars - Liked It, because something is always missing, but Nicolette Day had me falling for Jace in the beginning and the story line fell nicely through out the novel.

Seven Sons (Gypsy Brothers #1)
By Lili St. Germain
Pages: 112
 
Rating: 4 stars - Loved It
What an interesting and different read. A bit on the dark side but with Jase the younger brother does bring some lightness to it. Not a fan of her actions sexually with a certain character but it is her determination to get revenge that I like. I did get this book free and thankfully was able to get the Gypsy Brothers: Complete Series on sale a while back for $0.99.

Rocky Mountain Heat (Six Pack Ranch #1)
By Vivian Arend
Pages: 162
 
Rating: 5 Stars - Amazing
Vivian Arend knows how to write about love, friendship with a sexy alpha male cowboy. I loved Blake’s character as he is a brooding, sweet, dirty talker and a bit jealous hero. All I will say is I want Blake, peaches and a dining room table. Vivian Arend is a master at writing some scorching but tasteful sex scenes. The fact that he is 10 years older than Jaxi is a bonus for me. Loving family with 6 delicious brothers that add so much fun to Blake and Jaxi story.

Review / QT & L4C Meme: Confess by Colleen Hoover

Hello. Today I am sharing my review, Lusting For Covers Meme and Quote-Tastic meme for Confess by Colleen Hoover

 
Spoil Free Review
 
 
Rating 3 Stars - Liked It
After watching the mini series trailer for Confess I had to bump it up on my TBR pile ASAP.  Colleen Hoover is a mastermind when it comes to originality. I loved the confessions and actual paintings.
 
Well I did not love Confess has much I was hoping for. On the other hand I did not hate it either. What happened to her alpha male heroes I love to read about. Emory who is Auburn's best girlfriend has more balls than Owen. I understand why Owen at times did have to stand down but I really needed him on quite a few occasions do some serious ass kicking. I was actually shocked a few times he did not step in. In one scene I actually did not like him for not stepping in.
 
I was missing the sexual tension and  couple chemistry Colleen Hoover is known for in her books. Owen and Auburn were cute and a bit awkward together. I liked it but was still not always feeling their chemistry.  I loved and respected them as individuals. They are both selfless and the sacrifices they endure for their loved ones is sad and beautiful.
 
Confess is broken down in Two Parts. Part One was boring. I kept waiting for something major to happen and nothing did until the last chapter. Part Two was a bit better than Part One as I could not swipe my kindle fast enough but still I needed some situations to be dealt with more.
 
Overall Confess was not a bad read. I did feel that there was too many serious themes happening.  I felt a lot of  times certain scenarios were rushed and not fleshed out. I was really shocked by this because Colleen Hoover is a amazing story teller who can bring out different emotions. Confess should of been one of those books where I could laugh, cry, get angry and go all fan girl on the hero. Unfortunately the execution and emotions were not there for me.
 
I think this will be one of those occasions where I will like the on-screen better.

I know I already did a Tonya Burrows book just recently but the synopsis for Too Wilde To Tame has caught my attention. I do not know why but I love neighbors in my reads. I really want to dive straight  into Greer and Natalie story. I will most likely start from book 1 as I also love brothers in my reads.

Phoenix ‘Nix’ Knight thought pulling his club out of the illegal shit his Pops got them into was difficult.

Until he meets Kadence.

Kadence Turner has no business lusting over a student’s father, especially the president of the Knights Rebels MC. Nix is crass, obnoxious and dangerously sexy and for some reason, Kadence can’t seem to hate him for it. The bossy biker breaks down her defenses, but unlike the old Kadence, the woman she is today won’t give in without a fight.

The tension is undeniable, the attraction fierce. A man that wants what he wants and a woman that will fight him every step of the way.

Sometimes you need someone so much...
Lust can become love.
And love can turn into a deadly obsession.
 
Skye Sullivan knows that someone is watching her. Not just watching - stalking her. Months ago, Skye was involved in a dangerous car accident. The accident ended her dancing career and sent her fleeing back to Chicago. Skye is convinced that her stalker caused the crash, and she fears that he won’t stop pursuing her, not until she’s dead.
 
When someone breaks into her apartment in Chicago, Skye turns to the one man she believes can protect her - Trace Weston. Once, Trace was her lover. Two lost souls, they’d come together in a firestorm of need and desire. But then Trace had pushed her away. He’d joined the military, vanishing from her life. She’d put all of her emotion into dancing, and she’d tried to forget him.
 
Now Trace is one of the most successful men in the United States. Rich, driven, and carrying dark secrets, he agrees to help Skye. He’ll protect her from the danger that lurks in the darkness, but Trace wants more than to just be a guard for Skye.
 
He wants her. And he’ll take her. The years have changed him, hardened him. He’s not just a poor kid from the streets any longer. Now, he can have anything - or anyone - that he wants. And the one woman he has always wanted has just come back into his life. He won’t let her go again.
 
But with the threats mounting against Skye, she suspects that her stalker may be intimately close. He’s a man who knows her too well. As his attacks grow ever more dangerous, she realizes that if she trusts the wrong man, she could be making a fatal mistake.
 
Lust. Love. Obsession.
 
Just how far would you go in order to possess the one person you want the most?

Synopsis by Goodreads
A deadly game of hide and seek.

With blood still on her hands, Samantha Matthews is on the run, running from dark secrets and a man she prays to God will never find her. Running and hiding, just to stay alive. She had no choice but to run, to leave, to hide and forget about her life before. When Samantha believes she's gained enough distance from her past and her demons, she stops running, hoping to find her future in the heavily wooded area of the Adirondack Mountains, a place she never expected to encounter a man with secrets as dark and as sordid as hers.

Kade Grayson is hiding, not from the demons after him, but from himself and from the entire outside world, wishing every day he could have just died. Arrogant and domineering, he’s tormented and terrorized by his past, seeing nothing good for his future. With the ghosts of his past still haunting him, he has exiled himself to a life of solitude, only living for his words and through his stories.

Until her.

An undeniable attraction, turns into hate and then ultimately obsession, an obsession that grows into a powerful story of love and redemption.

Will the bond they have begun to build between them grow stronger than the tragedies that have scarred both of their lives? Or will they allow their demons to consume them?

Real Life: Crazy Short Wearing & Flip-Flops Kind Of Day

Happy Sunday everyone. What a gorgeous weekend we are having in my little corner of the world here in MI. Crazy it is winter and was in the mid 60's today. All our patio stuff is tucked away but hubby was able to get to our lounge chairs. It was nice, got to sit out in the sun on the front porch and relax. Well hubby had on shorts and flip-flops. Not me, ha ha I am not there yet. It was nice to get some reading done outside in my worn out jeans, comfy slippers, baseball hat and no make up.


Love quotes and teasers. Here is one from Shadow Rider by Christine Feehan.
 
"Text me, Francesca. I won't be happy if you forget."
 
"We all endeavor to make you happy," she murmured softly, and smiled innocently up at him.
 
Stefano is bossy and Francesca can be a tad bit sassy.

Goodreads quote caught my attention for Honor Reclaimed.
 
“One shot, one kill. Anything more is a waste.” He ejected the fired cartridge, chambered a fresh round. “Find the others.”
 
The corner of Ian’s mouth kicked up in a sardonic half smile and he lifted the scope again. “This doesn’t mean we’re friends. I still think you’re window-licking insane, Hero.”
 
“And I still think you’re an evil motherfucker, so we’re even. Now find me another target.”
 
Thoughts
I had Seal Of Honor (Hornet #1) for review from NetGalley. But I did not get a chance to read it before I stopped doing ARC. I am a huge fan of  "boys club" in my reads. Hopefully I will get to Hornets series soon.

Sorry lovelies. I am obsessing over Tonya Burrows at the moment. Another synopsis that caught my attention. I really just need to get one of her books and get over it. Now for the cover. It is all about how a man holds his weapon. Yep this sexy wife-beater wearing, hunk of a man is doing it right. Ok I am no professional in weaponry but it sure looks good to me. I am into little detail and I do not know why but I am liking his wife-beater a little tucked into the front of his jeans.

Synopsis By Goodreads
Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all - popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the truth about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory - someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

Sweet Temptation is a feature on Wickedly Delicious Book Blog. That centers around books that have caught my attention. Whether it be a quote, snippet, teaser, excerpt, synopsis or a review.
 
I remember seeing Linnea Sinlair in books stores a while back. Never really gave them much thought since I do not read a lot of Science Fiction. I was curious to see what Renee at Addicted To Romance thought of it so I read her review.  First "Gabriel Sullivan–alpha mercenary, smuggler, and rogue–is supposed to be dead." in the synopsis caught my attention. Then in her review she had me with "Gabriel is a man that is alpha when he needs to be, proud, a fighter and cunning and over protective especially of his closest friends." That is the kind of alpha male hero I love in my books. Thanks Renee for another addition to my goodreads.

Lusting For Covers: Caught By Red Garnier

 
Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers. This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ’s Book Palace.

 

Thoughts:
Cover is not perfect but I like it.  His hand looks whiter than the rest of his body. Other than that it is the couple's pose that caught my attention. With their compfy jeans and tanks they have that playful and laid back vibe. Nice to see the woman going for the man. Do not see that alot. The white background goes with the feel of the couples pose. It gives it a crisp and clean look.
