Can one turn of fate be their conquering destiny?

Jen Thorne is the resident book geek at Nellis Air Force Base, though she’s strict about keeping her fictional men separate from her real-life expectations. It’s safer, for her heart and soul, to maintain her personal life as a no-fly zone.

Until she stumbles onto Sam Mackenna’s radar.

It’s clear the Scottish RAF pilot-on loan to the Air Force for a month of cross-training-is more than Jen’s fantasy Highlander come to life. His commanding aura is as intoxicating as his golden gorgeousness, and she’s unable to resist the desire to let him dominate her in every way possible.

Never has a man unlocked more of Jen’s darkest desires and erotic yearnings-but being the man’s perfect submissive in the sheets doesn’t mean she’s his life’s destiny. Why would an alluring hunk like Sam choose a wallflower like her for anything more than his kinky booty call? Once he returns to Scotland, forgetting him will be easy-if she can prevent him from completely conquering her heart.

But that may be easier said than done.

Can this be read as a standalone? 

The characters are introduced in other stories but this is definitely their story. So could be read without reading others in the series.

Angel Payne gets ALL the STARS!!!

Angel Payne, the things you do to my heart!!! There really isn’t any more praise that I can give Angel Payne that would do her justice. She’s one of my absolute hands down favorite authors. Ever since I discovered Angel I have not read a book of hers that has disappointed me. She is a wizard with her words. Her characters suck you in and her plots keep you turning pages.

Conquered is Honor Bound book #9 and it certainly does not disappoint. It brings us the passion we have all come to love and want from an Angel Payne book, it is erotic, it has action, drama, anger, love, and so much more to offer.

Jen aka Jenny, is just a sassy nerd who works at Nellis Air Force Base. She’s a closed of tech geek who guards her heart with everything she has. She is absolutely not about to let a man infiltrate the walls she has built up. That is until Sam, the sexy Scottish Pilot who is just as drawn to her as she is to him. He is determined to break down the walls she has built up and she is learning that she isn’t going to be as guarded as she wants to be with Sam. Although they give into some dark desires she is still determined to keep Sam at arms length. I wonder how long that will work for?

Another absolute 5 star Angel Payne read! The whole Honor Bound series has been amazing and while they are all amazing I feel like each one gets better and better as they go!

Genre: contemporary romance

Add to your TBR


She has one rule: Never sleep with someone twice.

Faith Hitchin wears the shadows of the past on her skin for all to see. To a stranger’s eye, she is a girl with sass and tattoos, a lover of art. But beneath the mystery of swirls and ink, she is a woman alone and in pain.

When opportunity knocks in the form of an invitation to an art project that could change the direction of her life, she’s afraid to move forward. But, like her namesake, she pushes past all inhibitions and takes a leap of Faith. The last thing she imagines is a summer of self-discovery at the hands of a sexy Baroness’ son.

Elijah Fairclough is arrogant yet charming, complicated but forthcoming. With his blue eyes, expensive suits and evasive attitude, it seems he’s used to getting what he wants, and he wants nothing more than to discover the woman beneath the tattoos in every way possible. Will Elijah’s persistence make her break her only rule, or will there be tears of ink?

Anna Bloom is a new author to me. I read the blurb and knew that I needed to get my hands on this. The blurb alone sucked me in.

This story was emotional, sucked you in, and brought you on a rollercoaster of a journey. The characters this story follows are Faith and Elijah. Both are very passionate individuals and share many of the same passions like books, art, vintage cars, among other things.

Their passion is what brings them together and they were absolutely magical to read about. This story was so deep and to leave it spoiler free all I can really say is it is a journey you will absolutely love to take with these characters. You will be sucked in from the very first page and be left waiting for the next book in the series to come out because this one was just so good. Anna Bloom just became one of my ‘one click authors’

Authors: Charlotte E Hart and Rachel De Lune
Genre: Dark. Erotic Romance 
**OUT NOW!**
#DeviousEyes #CharlotteEHart #RachelDeLune

“You think I’m a hooker?”
The fiercely brooding guy I met at the bar needed to check his asshole behaviour. Still, he fast turned into the distraction I needed from my life. But it wasn’t romance. Couldn’t be. Running was my MO. This time I’m hiding in paradise, hoping I can stay alive, and trying to ignore the one person I’ve never been able to — my brother.
The problem is, I didn’t know who Nate Cane really was, and I didn’t know what was coming for me either.

“You try it again, and I’m done.”
That’s what I said to my brother when he challenged me. I meant every damn word. This time it’s my rules. My life. My game.
Screw loyalty.
But the woman I met at that bar hid her devious eyes from me. She wasn’t who I thought, and life has a way of determining your future, no matter the odds. Gabriella Alves might have started as a calculated fling — dirty, far from innocent, and mine — but then hell came after her and invaded my world. And a Cane always protects what’s his.
Odds be damned.

Loyalty. Family. Dark. Erotic. Romance.

My Review- 5 STARS!
Devious Eyes is such an amazing addition to the Cane Brothers Series. While this one is more of a slow burn it did not lack the depth that I was expecting with this book. These two authors have come up with quite the pair of brothers and I have loved every second of it!

Nate is the “numbers guy” of the two brothers. He is definitely double sided in the way of being able to be a complete badass, but being able to be so romantic when he wants to be. He’s protective, he’s possessive, and he loves deeply.

I really adored Gabby too and these two were such the perfect pair. They each think during their vacation to Bora Bora that vacation is as far as they can go. Each of their worlds are too dangerous to incorporate the other, but little do they know they will be thrown back together in ways they do not expect.

There are many dark aspects to this book and I enjoyed the entire ride with this book! It’s definitely a book to add onto your To Be Read list and if you have the funds then definitely one click this gem!


Crave by Adriana Locke

Crave Machlan with cover



Title: Crave

Series: The Gibson Boys #3

Author: Adriana Locke

Genre: Contemporary Romance



Hadley Jacobs is over Machlan Gibson.


Sure, she’ll always be a little weak to the dimple in his right cheek and the way his five o’clock shadow makes him ruggedly handsome. But that’s not enough to cover every other thing about him because they all drive her nuts. Like how he’s won’t admit he’s wrong even when he knows it and how he drives his stupid car a million miles an hour on wet asphalt. As she rolls back into town and takes a seat at Crave, she won’t take the bait. She’s over him. Mostly.


Machlan isn’t over her.


It’s not because he hasn’t tried. He reminds himself over and over that she’s not the girl for him. After all, she drives him insane with her sassy attitude and the way she calls him out on everything. She beats him at poker, even though she doesn’t know the difference between a straight and a flush, and when she looks at him with her bright, blue eyes, it’s unnerving. When she climbs onto that bar stool and orders a drink, he puts it in front of her and ignores the sparkle in her eyes.  He’s not over her, but she won’t know that.


But she does know that. And he knows she’s not as over him as she’s pretending to be. When life forces their hand this time, there’s more on the line than a pile of poker chips. It’s their forever.


Crave is a standalone romance in a new small town, blue-collar series from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke. Join readers everywhere as they fall in love with the delicious Gibson Boys.

My Review- 5 Stars!

Crave brings us the story of Hadley and Machlan. He is a broody bar owner and part of the Gibson family that we have come to love so much!

Hadley comes back to town to figure out her life. She knows she needs to figure out how to get over the one man who has driven her crazy especially since she is still hung up on him. Machlan is terrible at dealing with his feelings. These two fight non stop and remind me of a bickering married couple. No matter what these two decided they were always going to be apart of each others lives with so much that happened in the past.

This book was beautifully written just as I expected it to be. The story as much as it had heartbreaking parts, had such beautiful parts and passion throughout it. I’m never disappointed when it comes to Adriana Locke books and this one was absolutely no different in that aspect.

Hadley and Machlan’s story will stick with me for a long time to come.

Misadventures With A Manny by Toni Aleo





Misadventures with a Manny 


by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author Toni Aleo


Release Date 9th October



Genre: Contemporary Romance 




Vera Woods is at her wit’s end.
Her husband has run off with the nanny, leaving Vera with a broken heart, three very angry sons, and even less time to juggle the demands of family and her career. After her boys scare away a sixth replacement nanny, Vera is out of time off from work and desperately out of options. Still nursing an aching heart, she turns to an unlikely source for help―a manny.
Lincoln Scott is no stranger to family chaos. But rather than grow jaded, he has thrown his natural talents into building his own business―providing live-in childcare for families as a manny. The money is great and the perks are a blast, but when his family of six years moves to Germany and their plans to bring him along fall through, Lincoln is suddenly unemployed and aware of how much of himself he’s given to other people’s families.
Brought together by circumstances, Lincoln and Vera’s mutually beneficial business arrangement becomes complicated by the undeniable chemistry they share. Vera needs a manny and Lincoln needs a job, but they both may have found the very thing neither one had realized they needed―a whole lot more.
Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.

My Review- 5 Stars!!

Misadventures with a Manny is pure PERFECTION! Toni Aleo never disappoints and her Misadventures is everything I expected and more! Vera and Lincoln sucked me in from beginning to end. I absolutely enjoyed every second of their story.

Vera newly divorced with a son and twin boys is doing the best she can to move on after a divorce from the only man she has ever been with. She was cheated on with the nanny Kaia who is now pregnant and marrying her ex husband. She’s trying to not be bitter, but she’s hurt and having a hard time adjusting with the kids. She goes on the hunt for a nanny after loosing several in a row due to her sons acting up each time they get a new one. Her sister and brother in law Phillip suggest Lincoln to be their new “manny” as he is in need of a job and the family he was working for moved to Germany.

Vera reluctantly agrees to try out the manny but little do they know that not only will the kids absolutely fall in love with him, but that some hot sex awaits these two and they will wind up falling for one another. Can Vera get past her divorce and trust in someone again? Will Vera want to start new with Phillip who one day hopes to marry and have more kids? All things you will find out in this absolute wonderful addition to the Misadventures series!

The only thing I wish that I had with this story is more! It truly is a fantastic read and I just want to keep reading more on these two!

Unchained (Blood Bond Saga 1) by Helen Hardt




Unchained (Blood Bond Saga Vol 1)   


Also Available Now – Blood Bond Saga 4 & 5  


by #1 New York Times Bestselling author Helen Hardt 


Release Date: 2nd October 


Genre: Paranormal Romance 



Unchained (Blood Bond Vol 1)

Part one: 

Vampire Dante Gabriel is starving. What he craves is red gold—human blood. After being held captive as a blood slave to a female vampire for years, he has finally escaped. Unchained at last, he follows his nose to the nearest blood bank to sate his hunger. 

ER nurse Erin Hamilton expects just another busy night shift…until she finds a gorgeous stranger vandalizing the hospital blood bank. Though her logic tells her to turn him in, she’s pulled by stronger and unfamiliar emotions to protect the man who seems oddly infatuated with her scent. Chemistry sizzles between them, but Dante, plagued by nightmares of his time in captivity, fears he won’t be able to control himself…especially when he discovers a secret she doesn’t even know she’s hiding. 


Part two: 

Dante Gabriel is angry. Someone has violated the woman whose scent has left him emotionally paralyzed, and he’s become unhinged. He vows to protect Erin Hamilton—mostly from himself. 

Erin has other ideas. She’s determined to figure out the strange man who keeps leaving her aroused and unsatisfied. When she pushes Dante for answers, he goes looking for them himself. What he uncovers could put Erin in mortal danger, with him as her only salvation. 


Part three: 

Now that Dante Gabriel recognizes the blood bond Erin Hamilton has formed with him, he has unwound a little. Still, he must find a way to convince her that she must complete the bond for both their sakes. Vampires are rapidly dying out, and humans have long considered them nothing more than a myth. How can he make her understand? 

Erin has fallen in love with Dante, but she’s still confused and angered by his behavior. To keep her mind occupied, she immerses herself in a mystery that has evolved at work. Patients have been disappearing from the hospital, and Erin begins to wonder if one of the ER doctors might be involved. 


Part four: 

Vampires are real. That fact has Erin Hamilton thinking she’s headed for crazy town. Still, she can’t deny the intense emotion she experiences when Dante Gabriel sinks his teeth into her neck to take her blood. She’s in love, and her body responds to his bite in a way she never could have imagined. 


Once Dante tastes Erin’s blood, he’s addicted forever and cannot live without it. He’s heartbroken when she demands that he leave and never return. But neither can live without the other now, which puts them both at risk. 


Part Five: 

Once bonded, never broken. The words give Dante Gabriel hope…until he remembers where he first heard them. The information he needs is hidden in the ancient Vampyre Texts, but he encounters obstacle after obstacle while trying to decipher them, even when someone from his past returns to help. 


Though she tries, Erin Hamilton can’t resist Dante. When he comes for her, she always submits willingly, despite her best intentions. She loves him but still can’t bring herself to accept him as vampire…even as other vampires, lured by her arousing scent, begin to close in on her.

Part 1 Review

Helen Hardt has done it again! Another start to another amazing saga! She has completely come out of her comfort zone to write us a paranormal story that we all will love, and love it I do!

Dante a vampire who has been held captive for the better part of his life escapes and is drawn to the one thing he needs to sustain life, blood. Little does he know he is about to meet a woman who he will want in all ways possible. Erin who is an ER Nurse is absolutely drawn to Dante and cannot figure out for the life of her why. She feels this unbelievable need to protect him and trusts him although she does not know him.

The first installment to the Blood Saga was absolutely phenomenal. I could not put this book down! I was sucked in from page one and love this new spin on the vampire. I love how each author has a different spin to the supernatural world and Helen doesn’t disappoint with her take on this world.

An absolute 5 Star MUST READ and I can’t wait to read more!


Part 2

WOW!! The Blood Bond Saga is quickly becoming one of my favorites to date! Part 2 has brought us lots of twists, turns, and suspense. I can’t get enough of it! This fresh take on the paranormal scene has been absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to read more.

Dante has started to open up to his family about the torture he has gone through and it’s some painful stuff to read about. We find out about the blood bond between Erin and Dante and why they are continuously pulled towards one another. There are so many different answers we are going to get in this installment that will leave us with even more questions that need answered. Erin is trying to figure out if she wants to give into her desires with Dante or not and I keep wanting to yell at her to just do it!!

Helen always writes the most perfect troubled alpha males, and I cannot get enough of Dante. The suspense during this saga so far has been amazing and I can’t wait to read part 3 and see where this journey will bring us. Helen always gives me that cliffhanger that makes me want to yell at her and hug her all at once.

Another 5 Star MUST READ by the lovely Helen Hardt!


Part 3

This Saga just keeps getting better and better every installment!

Erin and Dante are blood bonded. She must feed Dante her blood or she will die, at least that’s what is believed. Erin is starting to become forgetful and strange things are happening! She’s seeing people who aren’t there. Mysterious things are going on all around her like missing blood from the blood bank.

Dante is hearing the voices of those who tortured him and they are as real as if they were in the room with him. It’s making him feel insane. These two finally reach consummation and it’s magical for them, but he has so many questions.

Does Bill know more about the abduction and the blood bond then he is letting on? Why was he let go? Is he putting Erin in danger? So many questions he needs answers to and he’s not getting them
