Trust Me (Rivers Edge Book 1)

Fight Me (Rivers Edge Book 2)

 

reviewReview by Kristin Marvin

Expect Me is the third book in the Rivers Edge series but can be read as a standalone.

Expect Me is Travis’s book. Travis, as we know is Avery’s (Trust Me) brother. While at his sister’s wedding, Travis meets Josselyn McCray, a waitress at the wedding. While he thinks he’s being coy, everyone notices that Travis can’t keep his eyes off Josseyln, including Josseyln herself. Josseyln ends up back at Travis’s apartment for one night of unadulterated passion. She flees before the morning light. Travis is left to wonder what happened to the woman that captured his heart that night.

“Time to face the man who changed my life forever…”

Two months later, Josseyln shows up on his door step and drops a bomb he never saw coming. He’s going to be a daddy to an essentially complete stranger’s baby!

Travis is the youngest of the four Steven’s boys. He works hard, side by side with his father at the family construction company. He is a protective older brother to little sister Avery, and the proverbial punching bag for his older brothers. He’s not the confirmed bachelor, one night stand type of guy that his brothers or friends are/used to be. Travis works hard and wants the same loving relationship his sister has.

“I want to be there for you and our baby.”

Travis and Josselyn are, for all intents and purposes, strangers. They know each other’s bodies but that is all. Travis and Josseyln agree to avoid the undeniable attraction, and try to become friends first, for the sake of their unborn baby.

Travis wants nothing more than to provide for this woman and their child and will go to the end of the world to do so. While getting to know each other, Travis is also working on physically providing a home for his growing family, this means more time apart from Josseyln. She sees this, through hormonal eyes, that Travis is regretting his choice.

Can Travis prove to Josseyln that nothing matters more to him than her and their baby? Can they overcome the odds and become friends, lovers, and parents to this child?

We do see past couples throughout the book as well as Travis’s all-knowing mom who’s wisdom is still flowing freely!

Another steamy, small town romance from Lacey Black! I absolutely loved this book! I loved watching Joss and Travis grow together as well as individually throughout the book!!

5 stars!

review

Reviewed by Kristen MBurnt by Bella Love-Wins is a story of friends to lovers. Tara and Kevin have been best friends since childhood.

” He cocked his head. “You have to be kidding me. Don’t you remember how you socked a snowball at me for no reason?”She put her hands on her hips. “Kevin Crawford, you know very well I had plenty of reason. We were in kindergarten and you said my snowsuit was weird.”

Keving going on a date with another woman was just the push that Tara needed to cross the line into a romantic relationship with Kevin.

As the couple grows closer together, we see more and more of another jealous heart being thrown into the mix.

“You should be the one in there… not him,”he heard in his head. “This is a disgrace to you. They’re being rude and not taking your feelings into account.”

Throughout the course of this book we learn of a serial killer plaguing the town and you are given a suspect but doubt is cast on that situation. Can the cases be solved before another life is taken? Is love enough for this couple to get their happily ever after?

This book is a cliff hanger. ARC given for honest review.  4 Stars

Today is the last day I will allow myself to feel sorrow, the last day I will shed tears, because tears don’t change anything. I need to harvest whatever strength I have and hold it tight. I’m a mother who has an infant that needs me to be both mom and dad.

One day, they say. One day this will stop hurting.

reviewReviewed by Kristin M

This is a short novella completely centered around Olivia and Seth’s plans for Valentine’s Day.  It is a short fun read for fans of the series but doesn’t add much to the series as a whole.

Personally, as a fan of the series, I loved seeing them together again and dealing with an issue that everyone that’s in a long term relationship has dealt with…finding something new and exciting to spice up the relationship with! What happens when you get bogged down by every days tasks, work, diaper changes, laundry, cleaning etc. Can Seth and Olivia find a way to break free from the mundane and find what they once were?

5 stars! I definitely recommend this novella!

2) A Fan

3) A drink (yea make it something strong)

4) A towel (you’ll know why later)

Most of the book you’ll be fanning yourself. Squirming in your seat to try cure that insatiable pull that Matt Sky creates. The deep dark desire that runs through that mans head will have you wanting more and more. Hes, charming, funny, demanding, sexy, deep and he can be DARK. But damned if I don’t want to be pulled into the Dark!

“I felt a throb between my legs. I glared down at my Cock. Hold your f*king horses, I muttered. God…f*k was this seriously my life? Stalking a girl I’d met online, parked outside her house at midnight, speaking to my dick?”

Yes Matt… That is your life and you LOVE every second of it baby!

This book was fantastically written. I read this book in one sitting and simply couldn’t put it down! The flow of the story was flawless,the characters were developed just the way they should’ve been and you will be flipping pages faster than your finger will allow you too!

When an author makes your jaw drop, leaves you speechless and most likely wet, they have done their job and they have done it well. A big fat FIVE Stars goes out to Night Owl!!   – Shera

*Review* Beneath His Darkness (Healing Hearts #3) by Renee Dyer

23439122

synopsis
If I could describe my world in a color, it would be black.
My heart is black. My mind is black. Everything is black.
I let darkness take over when I was sixteen. That’s when my world fell apart. That’s when I learned Tucker Stavros took my life away from me. I’ve spent years allowing the darkness to comfort me; letting it take my emotions and box them up. Why do I need emotions anyway? They only make me weak. I need to be strong for what needs to be done.
What needs to be done, you ask?
That’s simple. Destroy Tucker. Bring him to his knees. Show him how it feels to lose everything.
Well, that was the plan, until Cammie Richards walked into my life. Now there are gray areas — slight color bleeding through the black. What happens when she looks beneath my darkness and sees the monster lurking there? Will she run away or try to save me?
How do I tell her I can’t be saved?
