Never Forget You

In exactly one week from now my debut book will be releasing and I decided to put a sneak peak below. Please make sure you pre-order my book “Never Forget You” on Amazon coming out on 4th July!

A hand trailing up and down my back woke me up. Burying my face into the warmth of my pillow, I let out a moan of refusal to open my eyes.

“It’s getting late Kate and we have brunch at my parent’s house in an hour,” Nathan’s raspy voice said as he placed small kisses along my naked shoulders. “If you don’t get up in the next five minutes we are going to be late for an entirely different reason than waking up late and it will be all your fault,” he said as he pulled me into his already hardened length. 

My eyes flew open as his arms snaked under my hips. I rolled over and pushed his hands away. We were late for the last few brunches at his parents’ house and I could not remove the blush that crept up on my face when we rang the door bell late each time.“Not going to happen again, Nathan,” I said. He looked at me with a smirk across his face and I didn’t like that look. That look always got us late. 

“No,no,no,no. Not today, Nathan,” I protested as I got up and headed to the bathroom. Talking to him over my shoulder I yelled, “We are not going to be late today, so take five minutes to cool yourself down.” I headed straight into the shower and began washing my hair. Just as I stepped under the cascading hot water to wash off the shampoo, I heard the bathroom door open and the shower curtain pulled. Turning around, I saw Nathan stepping into the shower with me. 

“I took five minutes like you said then decided to save time by showering together,” he smirked again. Shaking my head, I gave up. He closed the distance between us and placed his hands under my legs, hiking it around his waist. He pushed us under the water and braced me against the wall. Running my hands through his hair, I pulled his head towards mine for a kiss. A kiss that lasted till the hot water turned cold.

Mr. Fiancé

Mr. Fiancé by Lauren Landish  Mr. Fiancé by Lauren Landish

When reading this book, parts of it made me felt like I was watching the movie, “The Proposal” with movie actress Sandra Bullock. Though the plot differs, the underlying storyline is the same. The author did a great job but this book have one of my greatest pet peeves and that is instant love at first sight. But put that aside the book was a great read.

The heroine had been lying to her family that she had a fiancé for quite sometime now and the time had come for her to bring him home. And by bring him home I meant that she was invited to bring him to her mother’s wedding which would last a duration of a week. 

And like any daughter who did not want to disappoint their mother she agreed. So like a magician pulling bunnies out of his hat she needed to pull a man out of the thin air who would agree to be her pretend fiancé. And that alone was a big task since she didnt have a line of men waiting to fall at her feet.

In comes the hero who I must say is quite impressive. I love his attitude and the way he sees life. Not forgetting how much he loves his mama. Talk about ovaries over load. He is the friend of the heroine’s best friend husband and at first he was skeptical about what kind of woman needs to lie about a fiancé to her family.  But when he glance at the picture of heroine he was all onboard. 

Their first meeting was in my eyes like horny teenagers. And I hated the fact that all the hero could think about was getting into the heroine’s pants. And the heroine gave me wip lash when she told him that she wouldn’t be sleeping with him but she still dangled herself infront of him.

The book became a comedic read after they meet her family. There’s a part involving her mother’s dog that had me cracking up and sipping tears from my eyes. But then reality started to set in and feelings began to grow along with the atmosphere of love with the wedding. Then next you know the heroine is agreeing with her family to marry her fake fiancé for real.

You just have to read to know what happens next. 

Thank you so much for reading my review. Please make sure you pre-order my book “Never Forget You” on Amazon coming out on 4th July!

Children Of Vice (Children Of Vice #1)

Children Of Vice (Children Of Vice #1) By J. J. McAvoyChildren Of Vice (Children Of Vice #1) By J. J. McAvoy

If you’re a big fan of J. J. McAvoy like I am then you would know what a big deal this book is. I was sitting patiently in a corner bitting my nails off, bidding time, waiting for this book to come out. And to my disappointment this book did not live up to it’s full potential. And I totally blamed that on myself. 

This book is a branch off from the Ruthless People Series which is basically four books put together giving us an insight on the parents. The ending of last year the final book for that series came out called Bloody Melody and I’ll have you know it was bloody good. You can read my review for that series by clicking on the links. Readers don’t have to read the first four books before reading this but I would advise to. 

I guess because of how much I enjoyed the parents story I was expecting more from their kids but honestly, it just showed how much their parents failed them. They were not as heartless nor ruthless like their parents and I can’t see where Melody and Liam went wrong with them.

The hero is the first son of the maifa and he is the head. I love how I can see glimpses of Liam, his father in him. The heroine is one of his small day crush who is wrongfully in jail and thinks that the hero’s family is to blame for her family’s death. With the help of the hero, the heroine is let out of jail after she was showed the truth of her family’s death and have to marry to hero (getting flash back on a little melody and liam here) The hero promises her revenge on the people who wronged her and that was exactly what he did; eventhough he went about with it through some unorthodox way.

I hated how throughout this book, the sister showed how spoil and winy she was. I felt like she wanted what was not hers to begin with and that everyone had to fall to her feet whenever she says to do so. I also hated how this book ended but that is the only reason why I’m anxiously awaiting the next book.

My favorite quote in this book was when they were explaining the hero’s parents to the heroine;

“..It’s a long story. If I started, I’d need at least four novels to finish…”

  There was also one or two scenarios that happened in this book that didn’t really settle well with me and had me cringing. I’m not too sure this series will be as great as the Ruthless People series was.

Thank you so much for reading my review. Please make sure you pre-order my book “Never Forget You” on Amazon coming out on 4th July!


The Design (A Heart Novel)

The Design (A Heart Novel) By R. S. GreyThe Design (A Heart Novel) By R. S. Grey

I loved, loved,  loved every inch of this book! I think this was the first book from this author that I’ve read and I’m totally looking forward to reading more of her work. 

Okay, so the heroine had a hard upbringing. Her parents died when she was really young leaving her and her bigger sister to fend for themselves. She went throught this rebellious stage that got her sister worried and her sister relied all her worries to her best friend who happens to be the hero in this book. 

One day the hero was over by her house and telling her sister about how great it is to be an architect and unkownly inspired the heroine to also become an architecture. Fast forward years later, the heroine is late for an interview for a job and it seemed like everything was against her getting to this job interview. And as it turns out, the boss is also the hero and she obviously got the job.

What was weird about this part of the book and had me cringing was the fact that right off the beginning of her interview the hero tells her how he was attracted to her but will not act ont it. And I was like, then why the hell did you have to tell her you’re attracted to her in the first place if you are not going to act on it? Like what purpose does that solve? And also cringe worthy is the fact that he parades his boothy call in the office and that everyone can tell what they are doing behind the closed door but that made the heroine want him more.

That just showed me how desperate she was for him. Aside form that part of the book I enjoyed the rest. The heroine began working for him and their attraction was off the walls for each other. Which led them to having an affair since they didnt want anyone to know that she was technicall sleeping with the boss. That cat was let out of the bag when the heroine’s creepy roommate, who had a crush on the hero made sure eveyone knew about their secret affair. 

Nobody really cared about that but then heroine did something that lead her to get fired and the hero obviously couldn’t show her any favoritism and had to fire her although he didnt want to. The heroine understood his delima and they continue their realtionship.

Both of them however, was keeping secrets form each other and we all know what happens to secrets when they get let out. They destroy everything in it’s wake. The heroine on a rash decision packs her bag and moves to Paris leaving behind a devastated hero.

Does the hero leaves his company and runs off to Paris to find her? Does she realizes her mistake and goes back to him? Do they forgive each other? If you want to know what happens next you’ll just have to read it.

King of Wall Street

King of Wall Street by Louise BayKing of Wall Street by Louise Bay

This book has characters from a book I previously reviewed by the same author called Park Avenue Prince and to be honest it was as a good read if not better. I love the work of this author and I am looking forward to reading more of her work.

Unlike most books, where the hero and the heroine doesn’t meet or know each other at the beginning of the book, this book starts where the heroine works for the hero. And lets be honest here, the hero was a total jerk towards the heroine. And why you ask? Because he was attracted to her and didn’t want to act on his feelings so he decided to treat her like the dirt beneath his feet. Such a typical man way of thinking.

Anyways, the heroine tries her hardest to keep up with him despite his behavior. She recently move into an apartment and one night her upstairs neighbor was blasting music and she decided to tell him piece of his mind. So she knocks on his door and was faced with her douche of a boss. The next thing you know, clothes were disappearing.

Now, I was expecting that to happen since the book was told in dual point of view and readers could tell that they both were attracted to each other. But boy talk about moving fast! 

After that night, the heroine chalked it up to a one and done kind of thing but then there was a series of events that lead them to having no choice but to spend time with each other. It was almost like if faith or dare I say destiny had other plans in mind for the two of them.

The hero showed how much of a good guy he is and won my heart over in the way he treats his daughter. The heroine had her own opinion about single parents because of her own experience growing up. Her father walked out on her and her mom and started a family with someone else and since then, she had turned her heart to stone when it comes to scenarios with single parents. But watching the hero and his daughter together showed her how different it could be. And that broke my heart for the little girl who would wish for nothing each birthday but her father.

Eventually, the hero and the heroine began developing strong feelings for each other but then the heroine’s father appearance causes a disturbance that the heroine could not over look. Want to know what that was? You’ll have to read the book yourself to find out.

Thank you so much for reading my review. Please make sure you pre-order my book “Never Forget You” on Amazon coming out on 4th July!

Satan’s Son MC Boxset (Book 3)

Reapers's Redemption (Satan's Son MC#3) Simone EliseReapers’s Redemption (Satan’s Son MC#3) By Simone Elise

I did the review for book 1 and 2 for this boxset and like I said in the previous review, I would advise to read the first two before reading this review. All the books are connected and each book cannot be read as a standalone.

After some contemplation on my previous reviews, I think I may have made some mix up somewhere along the line. Since I read the entire boxset in one sitting it seemed as one very long storyline to me and I cannot remember 100% what happened in each book. I must say however, that the last two books in this series was very long and had more than one storyline.

But I definitely remembered that book 3 had some triggers for readers who are sensitive to certain dark themed books. 

The heroine had not too long give birth to her and the hero’s baby when she was kidnapped by one of the hero’s rival who he accidentally killed his wife (wrong place at the wrong time). The hero was furious and he tried everything to get her back but throughout this book he struggles with finding her, his position with the MC and being a father.

In her time being kidnapped, the heroine faces with some events that is not easy on anyone. Her kidnapper plays a game of Russian Roulette with her and by the time the hero saves her, she feels she’s damaged beyond repair with all the things she had to go through.

My Thoughts

  • This book shows you how the hero and the heroine’s relationship changed. It’s no longer a dysfunctional one but it became more stable. I guess thats what marriage and kids do to you. It makes you more mature.
  • I loved that the heroine’s twin sister stepped up into mother role despite what happened to her when she was 18. I’m also pleased that eventhough he heroine was not there she still looked out for her husband.
  • I felt that the author began getting very tedious in the last two books. 
  • This book really messed me up. I hated that I wasnt told from the beginning that there was triggers involved. I honestly thought it was a normal MC biker book. Boy was I in for a surprise.
  • The author did a terrible way of showing the hero’s and the heroine’s relationship. I don’t think they even had a relationship to begin with. They were off more than on.

Because of the events that happened to the heroine I’m force not rate this badly.

Moment Of Weakness (Embracing Moments #1)

Moment Of Weakness (Embracing Moments #1) By Katie FoxMoment Of Weakness (Embracing Moments #1) By Katie Fox

This book was a mixture of Romance/Suspense with a little bit of a hitman mixed together. I don’t know if I can do this review without giving away the book, so be warned that at some point I may have a spoiler. Fingers crossed that I actually write this without spoilers. **crosses finger**

Okay, so the heroine is off of college for the summer and what she thought would be the summer of her life turns out to be the beginning of a distaster. She had planned to go to Europe with her best friend and her boyfriend but she came home earlier than planned  one day to see her roommate/best friend with her boyfriend going at it on their couch. Furious, she packs a bag and headed home.

The heroine didn’t really had a great childhood; not beacuse she was abused or anything but because she lost her mother at a young age and her mother was the world to her. She never really got over the death of her mother and hid those feelings behind a smile.

When she calls her father to inform him that she had changed her plans for the summer and would be home, he informs her that beacuse of certain circumstances she would have to have her own personal bodyguard. Someone was threatening her father’s life.

In comes the hero, the bodyguard. When the heroine pictured her bodyguard she thought he would’ve been this old, bulging, bald guy but he was totally the opposite. As they began spending time together they form this connection that lite sparks. They filled this part of each other that was missing.

The hero was skeptical for his own reasons other than being her bodyguard; which you’ll know if/when you read the book. They had this push and pull relationship going on that furiated the crap out of me. I wanted to strangle the hero everytime he pushed the heroine away and treated her like the crap under his shoe.

What happens when they find the person behind the threat? Betrayal and Lies are revealed!! You’ll have to read to know.

“Julia, wishing gives us hope, and in a life full of ups and downs, hope is what keeps us alive. It’s that little voice inside of us, telling us there is a light at the end of the cold dark tunnel. The moment you stop wishing, is the moment you stop living.”

The author also wrote this book in the hero’s perspective which I did a ran through. So if you’re interested in the hero’s point of view you can give this book a read too.

Bound By Hatred (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles #3) 

Bound By Hatred Cora Reilly Bound By Hatred (Born in Blood Mafia Chronicles #3) By Cora Reilly

I cannot remember if I did the review for book 1 of this series but I remembered reading it like it was yesterday and that’s saying something since I read atleast a book a day. So remembering it should say how much I liked book 1.

Book 1 sparked me to read this book since the characters in book 1 and 3 correlates. I would advise reading book 1 before this book. Book 2, however is on the back burner to read since I’m not that invested in the characters. 

This book series is basically an arranged marriage between two different mafia household. 

In this book both the hero and the heroine knows each other and are in-laws since the heroine’s sister marries the hero’s brother in book 1.

The heroine is head strong and she refuse to marry into the mafia although she was born into the mafia. She refused to adhear to the rules and laws of the mafia and wish that she can have a life of her own; one that has nothing to do with the mafia. She wanted to be a modern day woman and have her freedom to do whatever she pleases and the life that her father wants for her is nothing close to that.

The hero first sees her when she was a young girl and didnt pay her any attention since she was scrawny in his eyes. When his brother is set to marry her sister years later, they meet again and to his suprise she had blossomed into a beautiful woman. Her fiery spirit lite something in him and he knew from the forbidden kiss they shared that she had to be his. 

When the heroine learns of their marriage she becomes furious and plans to run away. With the help of her sister she manages to say hidden for 6 months. That is until the hero finds her in an apartment in Europe with another guy.

caught

Ohh how the steams was pouring through his ear. Of course the guy she got caught with was killed on the spot and she was taken back to her father who was ashamed and disappointed with her. But more surprisingly the hero still wanted her and that very same day she became his wife.

She began living the life she had sworn she would never be apart of. Eventually and unexpectedly she became accustomed to it. Obviously it didnt hurt that she and her husband had chemistry. Of course she refused to be apart of it and refused to acknowledge that she belonged to this life she hates so much.

I loved the hero. He was such a cuddle bear behind the maifa and not once did he ever hid the fact that he loved the heroine. He never once backed down with a fight for her.

The heroine to me was very winy and I hated her behivor. I kept wanting to slap the shit out of her and scream  at her to wake up and see what she has with the hero is special.

All in all a great read.

Clam Jam

Clam Jam RC BoltClam Jam By R. C. Bolt
I have to say this book was hands down a really great read. It had a mixture of everything that a reader would be looking for in a good comedy,romance book. It was the perfect proportion of sugar to cream to make the most deliciously brewed coffee. (If you didn’t know by now I’m a coffee lover and this book was consumed in one gulp). 

The heroine was looking for a roommate and her only rule to herself was that her roommate had to be a girl. She was burnt by men one too many times and she didn’t need the hassle of having a guy as her roomate.

The hero was looking for a place to rent and came across the heroine’s place. Upon meeting her, it was love at first sight for him and was disappointed when he found out she didn’t want a male roommate or anything pertaining to men. So naturally, like all crazy men in love(not), he lied to her saying that he was gay. There problem solved!

And that’s how, ladies and gentlemen the book got it’s name.

Okay, so I have to be honest I didn’t know what the term “Clam Jam” meant so I had to do some research on my end before reading. It’s basically, for those who don’t know, a female version of “cock block”. Example, say you’re a female and you’re out at a club and you meet a guy. Everything is going great and you think you’ll get lucky until this other guy comes along and steal him from you, leaving the entire night a waste.

And that’s exactly what the hero do to the heroine throughout the book. Of course the heroine thinks the hero actually takes these guys home but in reality he doesn’t, because he’s not gay.

If you want to know what happens when the heroine finds out that her gay roommate is actually straight and have the hots for her then I would recommend you to read it.

Flanked (Studs in Spurs #5)

FlankedFlanked (Studs in Spurs #5) By Cat Johnson

When I began reading this book I was unaware that there were four other books before it. However you can read each as a stand alone.

The hero in this book is a “celebrity”as a pro bull rider and for some reason he is angry with the world. I dont know about any of the other readers who read this book but that was the vibe I got from his character. He also never see himself settling down like his other friends are doing with one woman in the future. He was content with burying himself in different women every night, that is however until he meet his friend’s little sister.

The heroine is this bad girl trapped in a good girl’s body. She had tattoos and piercings in places that she hoped her parents and her over protective brother never finds out. She goes to spend time with her brother and see him do his thing on the bull.

Having spending a while without hooking up with someone, she set her eyes on the hero who seems to lost his sense on the “don’t mess with your best friend’s sister” rule once the heroine lays hands on him.

They ended up hooking up behind her brother’s back and when the hero’s shoulder become injured she comes up with the idea of marrying him so that he would become insured under her insurance and get the surgery he needs. But they began forming a relationship that neither of them wanted but couldn’t seem to walk away from.

This book was an okay read but I was not much of a fan. The heroine to me felt like a “hoe” but then again maybe she’s one of those women who knows what they want and goes after it. She is not shy with her sexuality and take pleasure in taking what she want for men; specifically the hero. 

The hero had finally met his match when he met the heroine and I was happy that he could appreciate one women although he was surrounded by millions. I hated the way he treated his father when he realized that his father was finally moving on after the death of his mother. I think every child should be happy to know that their father is finding happiness with another women once their mother had been dead for some time.
