synopsis

Jack Valentini isn’t my type.

Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.

Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.

But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me for ten days, and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.

His huge, hard muscles.

Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.

And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife three years ago left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.

But he’s wrong.

I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.

“Second chances are not given to make things right, but are given to prove that we could be even better after we fall.” —Unknown

A sweet, rich city girl and a hot, delicious, brooding country boy? Yes PLEASE, if it’s Melanie Harlow giving me the story! Once again, she does NOT disappoint with her newest novel After We Fall. I fell fast, I fell deep and I fell so freaking hard in absolute unwavering love with Jack and Margot!

Margot heads out to the country to help the Valentini brothers with some much needed branding. Only one problem, everyone is on board except Jack. He wants absolutely no part of changing one single thing about the farm, let alone anything in his life. This hot, sexy farmer can’t let go of the past and keeps himself entirely closed off. When Margot shows this country boy that she may be a city gal but she is one who is quick learner, smart and doesn’t mind getting her nails, or those boots dirty it stirs something within him. She surprises him at every turn and despite his very carefully constructed walls, Margot begins to break them down and Jack shows Margot something she’s never felt before.

What happens when those walls start to crumble? Does something beautiful blossom or does it all come tumbling down? Well, you’ll have to read to find out! I laughed, I cried, I swooned. This book had everything you want in a good read to cozy up with and spend the entire day glued to your e-reader. I once again bow down to Melanie Harlow for another brilliant read!

Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she’s not writing or reading, she gets her kicks from TV series like VEEP, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Homeland.

*Review* Freeing Destiny by Faith Andrews

26840725

 

synopsis

Words to live by:

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Don’t break the rules.

I’d managed to fail at both by fraternizing with the enemy’s brother. Guess I’d followed in my mother’s footsteps by ignoring all the rules when it came to love.

Mom was marrying a man only six years older than me. A man who was also her student. But the biggest surprise that came out of their wedding wasn’t my new stepdad’s academic status or his age.

It was Jack Davis—my stepfather’s best friend.

Jack was the guy who could change the whole game. He was quite possibly my soul mate. But time and circumstance were against us—there was no easy way around it. I was moving back to New York in two weeks and his sister, Aubrey, was the one person my family hated most in this world. How would his sister—the enemy—deal with another Edwards girl claiming what she believed was hers? The idea of letting Jack go crippled me. Would I have to cut ties with the only man I’d ever let into my heart?

Shera 5

Freeing Destiny is a beautifully written book, about two amazing characters filled with courage, fear and taking leaps for of course, love. This is a dual point of view read (which I love to read) with characters that were very easy to connect with and just as easy to fall in love with! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each book I’ve read by Faith Andrews that I’ve read to date and Freeing Destiny is no different.

Jack is funny, smart, sexy, witty and so freaking funny. Stella is smart, determined, full of life and I think just a beautiful soul. Meeting at her mother’s wedding, who happened to marry Jack’s best friend, Jack meets Stella. There is instant chemistry between these two. There is only one problem. Stella is set to move across country with her family very soon and that doesn’t leave these two very much time together. When Stella takes a leap of faith and stays back, while her family moves you watch her and Jack’s connection bloom even more.

What happens when something can deter your road to your destiny? Will Jack and Stella’s destiny be sidetracked or will these two make it through the bad weather?

“Stop fighting it, Stella. There are certain things in life that happen for a reason. You and I are going to happen – no matter what the fucking purpose or result entails.” – Yes JACK, just YES!!!!

This was a quick read with all the feels of a romance book. The fun, the swoon, the banter and of course you have a small touch of drama mixed into all this sweetness. 5 Stars for Freeing Destiny

*Pre-Order Promo* Sidelined by Emma Hart

SIDELINED EMMA HART AMAZON KINDLE EBOOK COVER (1)

synopsisThree people. Three motives. Three reasons.

When the game leaves the field in the second book in the USA Today bestselling BY HIS GAME series and mixes with sex, lies, and betrayal, the future isn’t the only thing on the line…

 

Macey Kelly has sworn off men. Unless they’re going to zip in and out of her apartment—and her vagina—quicker than they can give her an orgasm, she’s not interested. Finding out her boyfriend of three years got her cousin pregnant was a total confidence knock. Luckily for Macey, confidence is

something she has in abundance, so all Mitch’s asshole move did was make her pretty cynical toward men.

The last thing Jack Carr needs at the start of the season is for a dark-haired, sexy as sin, gyspyesque beauty to be consuming his thoughts. Football is his life, which leaves no time for girls. Unless they’re the love ‘em and leave ‘em girls. Becoming one of the best running backs the league has ever seen by racking up the yards is his top priority… not bedding Macey Kelly, despite her affinity for blow jobs and total sexual abandon.

Avoiding each other is the perfect solution, but when your best friends are in a serious living together kind of relationship, that isn’t always an option. Sometimes, sex on tap is the easiest option. And the sweetest.

Until Mitch shows up with a bombshell that could shatter Macey’s perfectly carved out life. It’s been a year, but he isn’t giving her up, not now he has a chance at winning her back. And he knows her buttons. Every single one of them.

Unfortunately for him, Jack Carr isn’t a loser. The star running back has his eye on the Vince Lombardi—and on Macey. But seeing her hanging between them both isn’t something he’s down with, not when he discovers why she’s so against anything more-ish, as she puts it.Macey quickly realizes she’s the ball being passed between two desperate yet opposing teams, and that only one of them can score the touchdown. But will the winner be the guy she lived with and loved for three years, or will the winner be the guy who understands her and makes her body come alive?

In this game, someone will be sidelined, and calling the play isn’t always as easy as it seems.

Tour: Life in a Rut, Love Not Included by JD Hollyfield

Synopsis

 Having it all isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

When Sarah Sullivan’s perfect life blows up in front of her, she finds herself crawling back to the one place she never saw herself returning: Home.

At thirty-one, Sarah had it all. Perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. When all that is taken away from her, she is left heartbroken and angry and desperate enough to let her life swallow her whole…for a while.

Fending off love and the pursuit of happiness completely, Sarah vows to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She creates a list of goals for herself—starting with a much needed shower—and constructs a plan to dig herself out of her rut. What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the arrogant new employee her parents have hired to work on an addition to their home. Enter Jack Calloway, the handsome, charming, lickable foreman with an insatiable effect on Sarah’s girly parts.

Jack accepts the job, but gets more than he bargained for. Unable to ignore his racing hormones—and calm his temper—over the obnoxious woman who clouds his judgment, Jack pulls her in and steals her heart until she finally surrenders. But is he up for the challenge of picking up the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart? Can he carry her out of her rut?
