Jennifer L.’s Review

REVIEW**~**RAW by Belle Aurora

18468559

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.

review

I know I am late to the game and I know I say this a lot, but I have mixed feelings about this one. Mainly because Alexa annoyed the hell out of me!  But, I will get back to that. First, this book is not for the readers who are looking for sunshine, smiles, and flowers. But I guess you could probably tell that from the title and synopsis. I was very excited to jump into this story. I needed to read something different, and this one definitely is different.

“I know I’m scaring you, but I promise you: you give yourself to me and I’ll make sure you never want sex any other way ever again. Be strong for me, Lexi.”

In the beginning I was like, hell yeah, this is great!! Mystery…great sex scenes…an alpha male 🙂 BUT, then Alexa ruined it for me. What the hell was she thinking??!?? She made stupid mistakes and choices, and that totally killed my high 😦  I know if I was put in her position, I would have done a few stupid things to have sex with Twitch, but seriously, there were things that made me mentally scream at her!! I felt like she went from a responsible adult to a silly bimbo.

“I will spank you. I will be rough with you. I will push you to your limits. But I promise that if you give it a chance, you’ll enjoy taking it as much as I like to deliver it.”

Then we have Twitch….SCREWED UP and INTENSE!! Yep, that’s about all. LOL! You have to read the book to get the full affect of Twitch. He’s just, wow!!

“There’s only one way I fuck.”

“Dirty”

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. And the ending…it finishes their story, but also left me hanging at the same time. I am not sure if there is more to come for Twitch and Alexa, but I certainly would jump on board to read more 🙂

Somebody Worth It Blog Tour Banner

 

Millie has struggled over the years to keep the spark alive in her relationship. Starting at a young age her life has been a series of trials and tribulations, and it’s only getting more complicated. She’s followed stepping stones that she wasn’t always sure were leading her in the right direction, causing her to wonder if she is on the right path.

Her husband, Brian, loves her dearly, but has a poor way of showing it. Stress easily beats him down, and his own protective nature seems to fight against him. He’s shutting down, virtually ignoring and alienating the people around him when they need him the most.

Millie lost her job and they’re about to lose the house. On the verge of losing it all, she questions everything. Where did it all go wrong? How did they get to this point? However, the answers could be more unsettling than anticipated.

Hearts will be broken when long held secrets are revealed. Is a chance at happiness worth the destruction it leaves in its wake? Is it worth the risk? Worth the pain for everyone involved? Worth the effort? Is she somebody worth it?

4 Stars!

Holy freaking cliffhanger!!! Where the hell did that come from??!!?? Everything I thought about this story was just blown to shit…in a matter of seconds. I really am speechless. Give me a few minutes and then I will continue this review.

“We were sinking like the Titanic, and just like those people, we didn’t have enough life jackets to keep us from going under.”

Well, now that I have picked up my jaw and taken in all that happened, I will say that I very much enjoyed this story. Millie and Brian’s story is one of frustration, sex (lots of sex), and heartbreak. I swear if they weren’t fighting, they were fucking! Which means, I read this story in almost one sitting. Yep, I couldn’t put it down. But, truthfully, there were times that I was so annoyed with Millie that I wondered why I didn’t put my kindle down and walk away from it for a few hours. I found myself feeling sorry for Brian a few times and then I would be like, WTF for!!! Ugh…I just wanted to knock the both of them upside their heads. The hot and cold they had going on made me crazy. There was no in-between with these two. It was only the way or nothing at all. But, the hot was HOT when they were hot 😉

Then, because these two don’t already have enough drama going on, in walks Dean. I am not sure what to say about Dean. By the time he enters the story, I was already so damn frustrated with Millie and Brian, that I hardly gave him a second thought until towards the end. What a freakin’ mess these three have on their hands, but I gotta give it to the author by saying I was hooked. I couldn’t go on with life till I knew how things worked out.

“You didn’t have to give up on our marriage. You ruined it.”

Then when I thought everything was finally going to settle down and I could see the HEA in the distance, THE ENDING HAPPENED!!!! I cursed and I pouted, but now I have decided I must get over it and hope that I don’t have to wait very long to see what comes next for Millie, Brian, and Dean 🙂

REVIEW and GIVEAWAY**~**Untamed by Victoria Green and Jinsey Reese

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Rich, beautiful, and wild, Reagan McKinley has everything she needs…but nothing that she wants. That is, until she spends one hot night in the arms of sexy, unbridled Dare Wilde.

She’s a girl trapped in a rigid world she desperately wants to escape, and he’s an untamed artist with an attitude, hell-bent on freeing her—body, mind, and soul. But Reagan’s life is not her own, and Dare is not welcome in it. She can’t include him in her carefully-controlled, extremely public lifestyle…and yet she cannot give him up.

Will a shared passion for art—and, increasingly, each other—be enough to keep them together? Or will it be the thing that ultimately tears them apart?

**Review copy received from the authors for an honest review**

5 STARS!!!

I fell in love with this novella and I want MORE!!! NOW!! This was one of the best novellas I have read in a long time. I usually feel that there is so much missing in them, but not here! The authors gave me everything I needed in a very short time. There is no lack of emotion, hot sex, or connection. I was hooked from page one.

“Oh, I was going to take the Dare. Hell yes.”

To give a short, and I mean very short description, Raegan meets Dare and he is the first guy she actually connects with. BUT, the two come from very different lives, and trying to make that work will be a struggle. I was broken at the end!! Broken and mad!! Yep, you guessed it…a cliffhanger. But, I should have expected it since this is the first of many in this series.

“You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. You are the only person I’ve ever wanted to be with for more than one night—and every moment I am with you only makes me want you more. You are not my dirty little secret. You’re everything I want in my life.”

My heart broke for both of these characters. There is no blame to be had by either of them, and I loved that part about this story. This is definitely a case of parents thinking they can control their grown children’s lives. That saddens me, true love should trump all L Dare and Raegan’s story will heat you up, warm your heart, and hurt your heart at times. This is a definite Book Bitch recommendation!!

BLOG TOUR**~**The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller by L.B. Simmons – Synopsis, Excerpt, and Reviews!!

Aubrey Miller banner

Release Date ~ April 25th

Author: L.B. Simmons


☆✮ Synopsis

18780453Death.

For some, it’s simply one of life’s certainties, nothing more. For others, it’s merely a fleeting thought, one often overshadowed by the reckless delusion that they have been blessed with the gift of immortality.

For Aubrey Miller, death is the definition of her very existence. Overcome with the guilt resulting from the loss of her beloved family, she alters her appearance from the once beautiful, blonde-haired, blue-eyed little girl to that of one shrouded in complete darkness, enveloping herself in her own unbreakable fortress of solitude as a form of protection for others.

As she enters her first year of college, her goal is simple: Earn a degree with the least amount of social interaction as possible. What she never anticipates is the formation of very unlikely relationships with two people who will change her life in ways she never believed possible: Quinn Matthews, the boisterous former pageant queen, and Kaeleb McMadden, a childhood friend from her past who never really let her go.

Over the years, as their connections intertwine and grow, a seemingly indestructible bond is formed between the three…

But when death painfully reemerges, Aubrey is lost once again, burying herself deeper than ever before inside the familiar fortification of her fears.

Will the refuge of friendship, the solidarity of life-long bonds, and the power of unconditional love be enough to do the impossible?

Will they be enough to finally bring about…

The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller?

excerpt

“Thank you so much, Quinn. This day has been…unbelievable. And I owe it all to you. You have no idea.” My voice trembles a bit with the admission, because she really has no idea what she’s done for me today.

I feel normal.

A normal girl, about to have a normal birthday celebration with her friends, in a normal (albeit spectacular) dress, with normal hair and make-up.

The only thing that’s missing is a pair of normal shoes.

“Shoes! I need shoes!” I exclaim.

“No, you don’t.” Quinn giggles and reaches for the knob of my bedroom door.

“What? Why wouldn’t I need shoes?”

That makes no sense.

She’s drunker than I thought.

That’s it, I’m officially hiding the champagne.

“You’ll see,” she says just as there’s a knock at the front door.

She winks. “Trust me. Just, stay in here. Don’t come out until someone comes to get you.”

After Quinn quietly shuts the door behind her, I remain seated. As the sounds of Kaeleb’s murmur filters into my room, a nervous excitement flitters through my belly and spreads into my chest. My joy takes flight and I breathe in deeply, contentment pumping enthusiastically with each thrumming heartbeat.

Damn, it feels good to be alive.

I don’t have to wait for long. After a very loud squeal from Quinn in the other room, there’s a knock at my door. My pulse kicks up and I rise from the bed, smoothing out my dress. With a glance in the mirror, I pluck a couple of sections of my new hair with my fingers and set them back into place. “Come in,” I remark, turning in the direction of the door.

The handle turns and as Kaeleb pokes his head around the corner, his eyes find mine. His eyebrows rise as his mouth falls slightly open, and he breaks my gaze as his focus shifts to take in my hair, my exposed neck and the line of my dress. He holds his stare briefly at the crystalline sash lining my waist, and then slowly drifts down to my smoothly-shaven legs and perfectly painted toenails. The left side of his mouth quirks up as he clears his throat, frozen in place. He tears his scrutiny away from my feet to fully step into the room, then turns away from me to shut the door.

I take advantage of the 1.5 seconds his back is turned, and survey him from head to toe. His light-blue button-up is folded to his elbows, displaying the prominence of the flexed muscles along his forearms. As he places both palms on the door and leans into them, his shirt rides up enough for me to see the designs on the back pockets of his dark jeans. They hug his ass perfectly, and for the first time in my life, I want to slide my hands right into those pockets just to feel the hardness of his toned body.

My fingers itch with the need to touch him, but I maintain control while Kaeleb braces against the door, inhaling and exhaling deeply. He stays planted there for a few more seconds until I suddenly begin to feel self-conscious. I run my hands over my hair and dress to make sure everything is as it should be.

Just as I start to ask him if he’s all right, he whips around with a full smile on his face. A few long strides later, and he’s standing right in front of me. Raising both hands, he traces the tips of his fingers along the sides of my cheeks, leaving a scorching trail as they run down my neck and thread themselves into the hair at my nape. With his thumbs underneath my chin, he tilts my head back and looks me directly in the eyes.

“You look amazing, Sunshine. Truly breathtaking.” His head dips slightly and he runs his lips tentatively along mine, the movement so sensual I can’t keep my hands off of him any longer. Fisting his shirt in my hands, I pull him into me and press my mouth hard against his, the need to taste him overriding my caution. A whimper rises in my throat and escapes into his mouth as his tongue slides in between my lips, slowly and deliberately, taking his time to stroke and caress mine. His hold tightens as his fingers curl deeper into my hair, the tinge of pain sending shockwaves of pleasure coursing through my body until they land right in between my legs, the throbbing sensation growing with each strike.

After another gentle sweep of his tongue, he lessens the kiss and pulls back slightly. His lips brush against mine before they slide over to the corner of my mouth, up along my cheek, and then rest them against my ear as he breathes, “Happy birthday. The dress is phenomenal.”

REVIEW**~**When it Rains by Lisa De Jong – Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

17833493

One night changed my life forever.

Beau Bennett has been my best friend since I can remember. He was my first crush before everything came crashing down, and now he wants more, but it’s more than I can give him. Things are different now. I wish I could tell him why, but I can’t.

I haven’t told anyone.

I never knew how much I really needed him until the day he left for college, and I was completely alone.

Then one day, Asher Hunt rides into town with his dark, captivating eyes and cocky grin. He doesn’t care who I used to be, he’s simply breathing life into what’s left. People warn me to stay away from him, but he helps me forget the pain that has held me hostage for so long; something I thought was impossible before he walked into my life.

I’ve been hurt.

I’ve been saved.

And I’ve found hope.

I thought my story was written that night, but now I know it was only a new beginning. Until one secret turns my world upside down…

review

What did the author just do to me?!? I say just but it has taken me days to process this story before I could write a review without flooding my computer with tears. Wow!! Someone should have warned me…there needs to be a huge warning in the beginning of this book that says, possibility of dehydration from crying your eyes out for hours. Yes, I said HOURS!!! Me, this book bitch who hardly ever cries over books, cried for HOURS!! But damn it was so worth it. This book is AMAZING!! One of my all time favorites! I am going to recommend that everyone read it, but be warned that you do not want to read it in public. Again, that would have been nice to know before I was crying on the elliptical in the gym. Yep, I’m a dork 

“Honestly, I don’t think anyone can fix me. I wish they would just stop trying.” –Kate

So, enough about the crying…not really but let me tell you a tiny bit about the book. Only a tiny bit, though. About all your getting out of me is Kate is one tough chick!! She doesn’t know it but anyone who goes through all she goes through before the age of 20, is bad ass! And Beau, I loved him, and I cried for him, and I wanted to choke him. Maybe all in the same time a few times, too. And then Asher….Asher is perfect!! Asher is the character in this story that will take me a long time to forget. Not only did he teach Kate a few things about life and love, but I think he taught me a few things too 🙂 

“From now on…”kiss. “When it rains…” kiss. “Think of me.” –Asher

I’m still swooning and teary up just thinking about it and writing this review. Seriously, people!! Get this story and read it…ASAP. You will cry your eyes out, take it all in, and then come back and thank me for recommending it :)

BLOG TOUR**~**Man of my Dreams and Keep Me by Faith Andrews – Reviews and a GIVEAWAY!!!

Double tour

 

Mia Murphy may be married to the man of her dreams. But the man in her dreams is the one that got Man of my Dreams by Jesscia Faith_ebooklgaway—her high school crush.

Mia’s stuck in a rut, just like every other stay-at-home mom, and the only thing saving her from her monotonous routine is her perfect husband, Declan. He’s gorgeous, he adores her, and the man stole her heart with his sexy singing voice. Mia feels like the luckiest girl in the world, until she discovers that Mr. Perfect is not Mr. Faithful. Mia is devastated. Everything she once believed about Declan and their marriage is now covered in a big cloud of doubt and regret. On impulse, she kicks the cheating bastard out, pushing them into a separation that could mean the end of the picture-perfect couple.

But when Mia receives an invitation to her high school reunion, she finds herself abandoning the present for the oh-so alluring pull of the past. Although her heart still belongs to her husband, inescapable thoughts of her crush, Noah, resurface. And ten years later, Noah isn’t afraid to make his move. When the build-up of fantasies and ‘what ifs’ comes to a head, sparks fly and it’s Mia’s turn to question if her marriage is everything she wants out of life. Searching for answers, Mia dives head first into dating Noah, falling further away from her husband and closer to her old flame.

But Declan’s not giving up so easily. Mia is his one and only and he’s not about to let another man win her heart.

 

review

5 Stars!!

What he did was so much worse than infidelity. He gave up on us, lost hope, trust and faith in me and everything we stand for.”

I’m sad. I’m happy. I’m teary eyed. I’m pissed. UGH…so many things are running through my head after finishing Man of My Dreams. Faith, what have you done to me!?! I am so confused. I just want them all to live happily ever after. The old saying “the grass aint always greener on the other side” does not apply here!! The grass on the other side sounded pretty damn green to me 😉

“Mia, I’ll take you anywhere you want to go. I don’t want this night to end because tomorrow you go back to belonging to someone else.”

Where do I start? In a nut shell, we have Mia and Declan as college sweethearts and now married with kids. And then Declan makes one mistake that rocks their happily ever after. This then pushes Mia into the arms of the one guy that she spent her 4 years of high school trying to get the attention of, Noah.

“The monotony of reality will suck the glamour right out of any desperate housewife’s life.”

Now let me tell you how I feel about all this….CONFUSED!!! I can see and almost understand every single side to this story. There are no bad guys here. This is the classic case of life is busy and married couples must still make time for one another. Yeah, Declan made a big mistake but should he be replaced that easily?? My first instinct screams YES, but as the story goes on, I kept changing my mind. Of course it didn’t help that the other guy(Noah) is also such a great guy. This caused my confusion. I didn’t want any of them walking away with a broken heart. Don’t make me choose between two awesome guys!!!!

“The word “torn” comes to mind, but torn doesn’t even begin to cover it. My heart feels like it’s being ripped apart and tugged in two different directions.”

This story touched me. It made me think. Plus, it brought back memories with all the 90s music talk. It’s one of those stories that you can easily relate to. Would I have made the decisions Mia did?? I have asked myself that questions many times since finishing this story, and I am not sure. But, I do know that no one should judge her until put in that situation, first. Man, I could go on and on about all the feelings I have about this story but I think you get how I feel about it….confused, still! I know many people are not fans of stories about cheating and love triangles, but this one is different from all the rest, in my opinion. It’s a well written and emotional story of life’s struggles. I loved and devoured every word of it. The ending brought tears to my eyes….sad and happy tears 🙂

Thank you, Faith, for sharing this fabulous story with me, and you all can mark this one down as another Book Bitch HIGHLY recommended read!!

KeepMe__JessicaFaith-high

Sexy, tatted up, underwear model Marcus Grayson is every girl’s dream—or more likely worst nightmare. He’s a player, a self-proclaimed bachelor for life, and he’s got no problem living up to his man-whore status. But when his older sister’s friend comes back from the past, he may just have the chance to turn some of his adolescent fantasies into reality. 

Tessa Bradley is a self-sufficient, take-no-bull, single mother—well, now she is. Finally rid of her abusive, alcoholic ex, she’s making a new life for herself and catching up with old friends; the ones she was forced to break ties with because of her controlling husband. When she runs into Marcus, her friend Riley’s once-adorable turned smoking-hot little brother, she has no idea how he’s about to rock her world.

review

4.5 “pretty girl” stars!

Can a 29 year old mother and a 24 year old underwear model/man-whore find love?? “Little Marcus Grayson” and Tessa Bradley(“pretty girl”) sure hope so.

“I Marcus Grayson, am a man-whore.”

“I’m just a man-whore, remember? I gotta live up to my reputation.”

From page one of this story I was laughing out loud. Marcus is hilarious! His honesty was great! He had no problems admitting to his whoreish ways. That was the one thing that made me think he could be the man Tessa needed…his honesty. Yeah, at times his past did come back to kick him in the ass, but for the most part he manned up to it and was honest with her. And we can’t look over the fact that he is HOT! All tatted up and sexy. All the women want him and Tessa would have never thought she would be the one to catch his eye.

“Never in a million years could I have placed myself in this scene, fooling around on the back of a Harley with Marcus fucking Grayson.”

Tessa Bradley…Tessa was my kind of girl. She has a son and she is a great mom, but she also knows how to have fun. She didn’t lose herself in motherhood. And even though she has had a tough past, she didn’t wallow in it. And, best of all, she wasn’t going to put up with Marcus’ bullshit. She called him on his whoreish ways and she made him want to be a better man. But, at the same time, she didn’t want him to change. I know that doesn’t make sense but it does and it will J This story isn’t about turning the bad boy/man-whore into a good guy. This story is about showing that the bad-boy is a good guy and all it takes is THE RIGHT woman to prove it.

“He’s a twenty-four year old model whose ego’s gone to his head. And you, my dear, are a conquest—he’s always had.”

These two have many people in their way, though. But never once in this story did I feel that they weren’t meant to be together. And you know, sometimes, I feel that the change is too drastic on these bad-boy types. But I didn’t feel that in this story. The emotions changing for Marcus when it came to Tessa, felt right. I honestly could feel that he wanted to make things right. And the sex scenes…whew, they will heat ya up!!

This is a well written story. Faith’s writing flows very well and I feel like I could enjoy just about anything she writes. Keep Me also has some great secondary characters. Riley, Marcus’ sister and Tessa’s best friend, plays a big role in this story and I was shocked by the events that happened with her. I gotta say that I never was surprised by anything that happened with Tessa and Marcus, but Riley really through me for a loop. Riley is a feisty girl just waiting for her prince charming to come along, and she was NOT happy about her brother’s new interest. My hope would be that we could get a story about her 🙂

Well, I have rambled on enough and I think you get the point. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and recommend it to all 🙂
