Review: Jet (Marked Men #2) by Jay Crownover

Yeah!  It’s the weekend!  Well, it’s almost the weekend.  I am starting your weekend off with a blast of Jay Crownover and her Marked Men series.  Jet, is a hot local rockstar.  He desperately needs to avoid the hot southern belle, Ayden.  But when avoiding can’t happen anymore their two worlds finally crash together.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn’t want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet’s dark, haunted eyes. She’s afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire.

Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships.

Will the blaze burn into an enduring love. . . or will it consume their dreams and turn them to ashes?


Ayden has successfully avoided Jet since she threw herself at him and he turned her down flat.  Unfortunately, successfully avoiding is a bit tricky since he now lives with her and their other roommate.  Ayden and Jet, however, start a weird friendship.  As their friendship grows, jealousy and sexual tension build until they finally combust and come together.  But, as their relationship takes off, Ayden’s past catches up with her and forces her to make hasty decisions for both her and Jet.  Ayden’s fear and resentment of her past lets her throw away the love that Jet has for her and Jet’s past let’s his insecurities about love let Ayden push them apart.  In the end will they realize what they lost or will they just move on being shell’s of themselves?

It is so fun reading these Marked Men books.  Learning about these tattooed, sexy men is fun and exciting.  I was looking forward to Jet’s story.  I really liked him in Rule and I loved Ayden as well.  This definitely didn’t disappoint.  Getting to know the real Jet and Ayden was as fun and intriguing as I thought.  They both had secrets that really propelled this story into something more than just hot sex and hot sexy men.  Jay Crownover’s mixture of sexiness, hilarity and intrigue makes for a great story and a book that will leave you drooling and panting for more.

Review: Fight with Me (With Me in Seattle #2) by Kristen Proby

Howdy folks!  Today I am diving back into the world of Kristen Proby her sexy men in the With Me in Seattle series.  Book Two, Fight With Me, we get to follow Jules and her naughty affair with her boss.  Knowing they could both lose their jobs they are willing to throw caution to the wind and jump into a relationship and into bed with one another.  For my steamy review keep reading after the book blurb.

16090636Book Blurb:

Jules Montgomery is too busy and content with her life to worry about a man, especially one Nate McKenna. If growing up with four brothers has taught her anything, she knows to stay away from sexy men with tattoos and motorcycles. That goes double if he’s your boss. During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy…among other things, and it won’t happen again. Jules won’t risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her.

Nate McKenna could give a shit about the no fraternizing policy. He wants Jules and he’ll have her. The rules could bend around them, or be damned. He’s not a man to be taken lightly, and Jules Montgomery is about to find out just how he responds to being pushed aside after the best night of sex he’s ever had. She can fight all she wants, but he’ll have her in his bed in the end.


Jules made a huge mistake.  She slept with her very sexy boss.  After sneaking out to avoid the inevitable awkward day after conversation, she successfully avoids him for weeks until she is asked to work late with him.  That night changes everything. With his proposition to spend the weekend together they make the decision to ignore the no fraternization policy and see each other.  Jules is trying to protect her heart from this man that she is falling for so quickly.  Once she really gets to know him she realizes that this isn’t just about the great sex anymore.  It’s so much more.  But, when Jules is betrayed in the worse way, will she just drop everything and run from the one person who has her heart or will she be open to forgiveness and let love in?

Jules is one of my favorite characters in this series.  Her braziness and tell it like it is ability really resonates with me.  She is the type of person each girl should have as a friend at some point in their life.  She is equally matched with Nate her boss.  He is so much more than a hot bod and a phenomenal businessman.  It was really fun watching them peel back the layers of each others lives.  With this we also got to meet more the Montgomery family.  Jules’ brothers are awesome and you can definitely envision the hotness that comes from that family.  This story was a great addition.  It really mixed the sensual with the relationship.  It didn’t make it all about sex but you really felt the love between them.  It takes the incredible talent of Kristen Proby to bring a story like this to life.

Review: Sweet Reckoning (The Sweet Triolgy #3) by Wendy Higgins

Happy Wednesday!  Today I am bringing to you the last in The Sweet Trilogy, Sweet Reckoning.  We will finally get to see what happens to the allied Nephilim.  When the Dukes really decide that Anna is a threat and her father is possibly a traitor then all stops are pulled and they throw many Nephilim her way to try to discover her secrets.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

16007855Book Blurb:

It’s time.

Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.

The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.

In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.


Its time for the end.  It will either be Anna and her Nephilim allies or the Dukes.  Sides will be chosen and choices will be made.  The Dukes will send out the worst of the Nephilim to hurt Anna.  The only thing saving the others are that their focus is strictly on Anna and her father.  Soon, even Kaiden, is forced to work against her to continue the ruse that they have been using.  In the end some hearts will be broken and decisions that will change everything will be made.  It is the time a reckoning.  Which side will win?

This is the ultimate ending to this phenomenal series.  I had tears and cheers.  Characters you fall in love with will fall and you find your self crying out Why!  All of that aside, those are why this is one of the best endings of a series.  It wraps up what needed to be wrapped up along with some twists and turns that you don’t expect.  With the happiness of Anna and Kaiden comes sadness with other characters.  The world that Wendy Higgins created was one that I was truly sad to leave.  I wanted to know more about other characters and more about what happens next.  But, with all good series’ you will always be left that way.  I didn’t want to let go of Anna and Kaiden but in the end my heart was so full of them that it felt good to see the ending/beginning of their story.  All around this was a phenomenal book and story.  If my other two reviews haven’t encouraged you to snap this up then I hope this one has convinced you.  You are truly missing out not stepping into this world.

Review: Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy #2) by Wendy Higgins

Happy Sunday!  Today I am sharing with you book two in The Sweet Trilogy.  Sweet Peril takes off where Sweet Evil left us.  This was a fantastic continuation of this series.  It dives us further into the world of Anna and the Nephilim.  The complications abound and so does the temptations.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

15768191Book Blurb:

Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?


Now that Anna has had to begin “working” for her father whenever necessary things have become complicated. She hasn’t heard anything from Kaiden since he moved and her heart still pines for him.  But, now that her father has an intricate plan for them to try to overthrow the Dukes she and her fellow Nephilim, Kopano must go out and recruit others willing to fight for their side when everything goes down.  As time goes on things become more complicated and dangerous.  Will the Nephilim be able to join together before they are discovered?  Can Anna decide what is really important to her, her heart or the lives of those around her?

I adored the continuation of Anna and Kaiden’s story.  The addition of the love triangle between Anna, Kaiden and Kopano really highlighted the deep feelings between all of three of them and an interesting new side to the quiet Kopano.  We also get to meet more Nephilim and see the depravity that drives the Dukes and their children apart.  This part of the trilogy really dives into the heart of Anna’s father’s plan for her and the Nephilim.  Though his plan at first may seem self serving it truly is something that is complex and dangerous.  It is that part that really adds a lot of depth to Anna’s character.  But, there are also times where you see how she is still naïve in many ways.  Overall, I would whole-heartedly recommend reading this series.  You won’t regret it.

Review: Come Away with Me (With Me In Seattle #1) by Kristen Proby

Happy Saturday!  I want to premise this with a big I’m sorry.  I know I have been reading a lot of new series’ that I recommend.  Well, this one is going to be yet another one that you want to start ASAP.  If you enjoy a sexy contemporary romance, you will find this series unputdownable.  I know that with this book alone I was drawn into Kristen Proby’s style of writing and fell in love with all the characters as well.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

16070521Book Blurb:

Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn’t part of Natalie Conner’s plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she’s taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

Luke Williams just wants the world to give him a break, so seeing yet another camera aimed at his face has him ready to pounce on the beauty behind the lens. When he finds out she has no idea who he is, he’s intrigued and more than a little tempted by her. Natalie has a body made for sex, a sassy mouth and Luke can’t get enough of her, but he’s not ready to tell her who he really his.

Natalie is a no nonsense girl who doesn’t do well with lies and secrets. What will happen to this new relationship when she discovers what Luke’s hiding?


Natalie is a talented photographer.  But, one morning when she is taking beautiful landscape shots she is accosted by a very hot guy yelling at her to stop taking his picture and insists she give him her very expensive camera.  When she refuses and accuses him of trying to mug her, he realizes what his mistake is and that she doesn’t recognize him.  Soon he is in hot pursuit of her and won’t give up until he has her in his arms and in his bed.  But, when Natalie finds out that who she has fallen for has been lying to her it breaks her heart and she doesn’t know if she will be able to get past her trust issues.  When they think love is really out of reach for them will they make the decision to put everything aside and love one another or will insecurities force them apart?

I thought this was a very sweet story.  Luke and Natalie are believable and quite funny at times.  This story really works with the idea of Natalie not knowing who he is.  I think for a person like me it is almost hard to believe she doesn’t recognize a world renowned actor but as the story goes on you really start to buy it.  The dynamic and sexual tension between these two characters is enough to set the pages of you book on fire.  Along with the two main characters, the friends and family of both of them really add a fantastic depth that really helps to propel the story.  Overall, this is a great beginning to a sexy series that will give you some very sweet dreams at night.

Review: Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy #1) by Wendy Higgins

Happy Friday!  Today I have a phenomenal book for you.  Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins was another book on my TBR list that I finally got to.  This is a great Young Adult Paranormal.  I fell in love with the creative story and the characters.  This is definitely one you will want to get your hands on.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

Embrace the Forbidden

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?

This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.

Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She’s aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but Anna, the ultimate good girl, has always had the advantage of her angel side to balance the darkness within. It isn’t until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?


Anna has always experienced things that others couldn’t.  She could see auras and most recently since her birthday she has been able to see clouds floating around people.  It isn’t until she meets a very hot drummer names Kaiden that things become a bit clearer.  It is only after their second meeting that Kaiden begins to reveal what they both are.  They are children of demons here on Earth.  Each of the children of demons have the affliction of the demon.  Such as, Kaiden is the son of the demon of Lust and he is charged with getting people to have lusty feeling and having sex, usually with him.  Anna, is the daughter of the Demon of Substance Abuse, and she is attracted to drugs and alcohol and must get people to use them.  The problem is that Anna has a conscience regarding this.  After finally meeting her father she learns that she is also part Guardian Angel.  With this knowledge, Anna must make a choice.  Will she follow the path toward darkness or stay in the light?  Its not as easy as it sounds since the demon world now knows about her.  She must keep the truth about her secret and her growing attraction to the Son of the Demon of Lust under wraps or she will get her and all she loves killed.

I adored this first book in the series.  Anna is truly a great character.  With her little bit of angel and demon it almost made her human.  I think everyone could relate on one level or another about the pull to do something bad and had remorse about it.  Kaiden was also a great character that brought a lot of depth to the story.  Also, who wouldn’t fall for the hot as sin drummer.  This is a teenage girl after all :).  The story itself was quite inventive and unique.  It really meshed the real world with that of angels and demons.  It truly felt like this could be real.  This book really set up the world and setting for this trilogy.  It let us meet characters that will be important in the future and allows the reader to bond with all of them.  Wendy Higgins is a gem of a writer and this is one series that I know will stay with me for a long time to come.

Review: Rule (Marked Men #1) by Jay Crownover

Howdy everyone!  I know I have been MIA for a few days but I hope you are prepared cause I have been having a read-a-thon and will be having lots of books coming your way.  Today, I finally ready Rule by Jay Crownover.  This book has been on my TBR list and boy am I glad I got my greedy hands on this hot piece of fiction 🙂  I loved this book so much that I couldn’t wait to read the next and believe me I am in deep with this series.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

17900545Book Blurb:

Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight-A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn’t want—and the only person she’s never tried to please. She isn’t afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won’t listen.

To a rebel like Rule Archer, Shaw Landon is a stuck-up, perfect princess-and his dead twin brother’s girl. She lives by other people’s rules; he makes his own. He doesn’t have time for a good girl like Shaw-even if she’s the only one who can see the person he truly is.

But a short skirt, too many birthday cocktails, and spilled secrets lead to a night neither can forget. Now, Shaw and Rule have to figure out how a girl like her and a guy like him are supposed to be together without destroying their love . . . or each other.


Shaw has always loved Rule.  Rule hasn’t looked at Shaw as more than his brother’s girlfriend.  But, after Shaw’s birthday full of cocktails, Rule sees first hand that he’s never really seen everything clearly.  Shaw and Rule begin a tumultuous relationship that has more hurdles than an Olympic race.  As Rule learns more and gets closer to Shaw he begins to panic and his old fears surface.  Between Shaw’s secrets and Rule’s insecurities can they come together to share a love they both feel or will they let it all go without a backward glance?

I adored this book.  Shaw was an awesome character.  She was feisty in her own way and definitely wouldn’t put up with Rule’s shenanigans.  Rule is the epitome of a sex god with tattoos and piercings.  Their relationship burned through the pages of this book.  It wasn’t just Shaw and Rule that made this book awesome.  Their friends are some of the best parts of the story.  I adored all of them and everything they added to the book.  Jay Crownover’s writing and storytelling skill is fantastic.  It’s definitely addictive and pulls you in and won’t let go.  If you like sexy, tattooed and pierced guys with sassy girls you will love the Marked Men series.
