Review:

I loved everything about Delaney Shaw. From her introverted personality, to her being someone who needs the challenge of a dare to feel like she can let loose, and her love of all things Star Wars and cats. She has such a huge heart, but burned by love and a cheating football player boyfriend, she has sworn off athletes for future relationship potential.

Maverick Monroe first met Delaney during a party freshman year. He missed out on his opportunity then and Delaney was soon in a relationship with one of his teammates. Fast forward two years when the chance came to make his move this time he didn’t hesitate. A few sexy texts, changing seats in psychology, and a dare later, he is not willing to back down.

Mav’s life is very complicated and he makes choices to take care of his sister that could ruin his future chances with the NFL, but he doesn’t know what else he can do. Instead of involving Delaney he shuts her out and there’s no telling if she’ll stay around for him to win her back.

As the mother of two gorgeous, book smart, “nerdy” girls (the oldest even dates a football player), Delaney Shaw is hands down my book girl crush. I absolutely love her, but I have a soft spot for Maverick too! I Dare You is already one of my top reads for 2018!! When Jen and I met Ilsa Madden-Mills in 2016, I actually said to her that I didn’t think she could ever top Dirty English for me. She told me to tell her that after she released Filthy English….. I couldn’t. I loved Filthy English equally as much, but I have to say I Dare You just topped both, and I never thought I would say that. Thank you Ilsa for another great read!

Review:

Bo St. James, is focused and driven. All she wants is to get good grades and work hard. She has no desire to get involved with anyone, ever. She finds Gus “the Bus” Persson to be cocky, obnoxious and too gregarious for her liking. Not to mention that he is a playboy and proud of it, with is “one and done” way of life. She has no intention of giving him a chance. Gus is hell bent on wearing her down. He can’t understand why she appears to hate him, when everyone loves him.  It’s his mission to win her over. Little did he know that he would be willing to put in whatever work was necessary to win her heart. Little did she know, she would eventually realize he’s not who hurt her in the past.

Okay, here’s the part where I admit that I was hesitant to read any book in the Misadventure series. It was weird to me to have a series with absolutely unrelated books, written by different authors. I was wrong. Toni Aleo delivered in Toni fashion AGAIN. I LOVED Misadventures With a Rookie!!! It was funny, and emotional, but not too emotional. She gave us moments of everything without making it too deep. Our heroine was broken, but not beyond repair, and our hero was just carefree and fun loving, but not without experiencing any misfortunes in life. It never got too heavy, and it was a fun, quirky, one night read. Thank you Toni for delivering their story as only you can!

HAPPY READING!!!! SHALAIA

I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.

When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?

Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.

 

So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?

 

Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.

 

But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?

Damien (Slater Brothers book 5) L.A. Casey

Review:

5 out of 5 for Damien. L.A. Casey gives us the last Slater brother and with just a little heartbreak Damien Slater and Alannah Ryan finally get their HEA. I love the Slater brothers and their women. Damien has suffered much loss in his 24 years, and instead of it making him hard, he remains a lost, sensitive soul who can’t see how loved he really is or where he fits among his brothers, and for that reason, he broke Alannah’s heart when they were 18 year old. She loved him so much she thought she could handle whatever came with him, and quickly found out she couldn’t. Damien is so torn up by what happened between them and other events that went down at the same time, he leaves Ireland and returns to the States. When Damien returns to Ireland, we get to watch him fight his way back into her heart, even though she really doesn’t want to let him in. Alannah has to overcome some demons of her own in order to truly give them a chance. Just when we think they’ll be okay the past rears its ugly head.

L.A. gave us the tragedy, the sexy, and the funny with Damien. I loved all 5 books, but this one made me laugh out loud.

Damien should not be read as a stand-alone. To get the true history of the Slater brothers and get Damien’s full story, all should be read in order:

Dominic, Bronagh, Alec, Keela, Kane, Aideen, Ryder, Branna, Damien

Coming soon:     Alannah     Pre-order link:      AMAZON

Braxton the Charmer (Brothers Black 4) – Blue Saffire

braxton-the-charmer-by-blue-saffire-1

 

Purchase link:

AMAZON

 

Review:

Braxton Black has been in love with Heather Lockhart since he was 6 years old. Heather has felt the same about him for just as long, but wouldn’t even admit it to herself, as she has been hiding some pretty dark secrets for the same amount of time. Brax made a promise to her as a kid, that he would stand by her side and take care of her problems for her. He never let the promise go. He never gave his love to another, but Heather was really too messed up to handle how her heart and body felt about him and she couldn’t get past their 4 year age difference. At one point she even used the fact that they would have difficulty as an interracial couple. What she didn’t take into account was who Braxton was, she could run and hide all she wanted, but he is a Black, he’s not going to give up.

We have watched these two dance around each other for the first three books in the Brothers Black series. We knew there was more than met the eye, and we really could assume that Lucy was Heather’s beard all along. They way Braxton teased her in the other books had to come from somewhere and be about something, but Blue was really good at just giving us enough to make sure we were salivating for Braxton the Charmer, by the time we got him. She did not disappoint. There were many times throughout out the book that I wanted to somehow reach through the pages and slap Heather myself. I really loved Braxton throughout the whole entire story. I wanted him to win her, and I wanted him to give up because I hated how she treated him all at the same time. His patience was other worldly!!!!! I felt for Heather, but hated how she let her childhood dictate her whole life, it made her seem weak to me. I loved when she started training to get her sense of self and confidence back.

I was so excited for this release, and Blue Saffire, gave me everything with this book. I actually read it in one day and I was sad when I finished it. With every Blue book I say it can’t get any better…… that’s just not true. Each one gives me everything I was hoping for with the couple, even if I sometimes feel like it’s taking forever for the couple to “get there” LOL! Thank you Blue Saffire for creating a fantasy world for us that makes us crave more and that says interracial relationships are okay. For making the men true men who cherish their women and always put their families first. For creating strong women who can absolutely take care of themselves and their loved ones, but are perfectly okay admitting they need their men and work best as a unit. I honestly hope we keep getting the Mairettie, Briggs, Black, Kemble, Donati, Caprisi, O’Brien, Monroe, McGowan, and Lincoln family stories for years to come!!

Next in the Brothers Black series will be Felix I believe.
