Allie
 
When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.
I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.
Jesse Shepherd. 
Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.
You know the type.
But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.
Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.
The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.
Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.
 
Jess
 
I blew my shot.
Pissed everything away—college, lacrosse, my future—only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.
I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.
Until I saw her.
Allison Parrish.
Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.
The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.
But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.

 

 

 

“Did you hear that?” I ask.

Moving in slowly, he cages me in, bracing his right arm on the wall above my head, his left hand by my hip. He brings his lips close to my ear and I fight the shiver that rolls through me. “It’s probably just your admirer,” he says, his voice hushed and husky. I swallow hard, looking over his shoulder as he nuzzles closer, his nose skimming my neck, then down to my collarbone. My pulse pounds in my ears as he moves back up, his mouth brushing across my cheek, stopping at my parted lips.

“Is this convincing?” He asks. He’s so close that I can feel his breath on my lips, and I realize that I want him to do it. I want him to kiss me.

I give a slight shake of my head in response.
“No?” He smirks, knowing exactly what he’s doing to me. His left hand leaves the wall to curl around my hip and he presses his chest to mine. “How about this?”

“Almost,” I whisper. I wet my lips and the tip of my tongue nearly grazes his bottom lip. His expression goes from playful to heated in an instant, then he’s closing the final distance.

It’s soft at first, just a brush of his lips against mine, but soon he’s cupping my face with both hands, tilting my head back as his tongue sweeps into my mouth, his movements confident and skilled. Unhurried and unyielding.
My hands find his shirt, pulling him closer as his tongue fucks my mouth. Because that’s exactly what this is. This isn’t kissing. Or maybe it is, and I’ve been kissing the wrong boys.
Jesse groans, fitting a firm thigh between my legs, and the need bubbling inside me threatens to boil over at the sensation. But all too soon, he pulls back, leaving me breathless.

“Was that convincing enough?”

Charleigh Rose lives in Narnia with her husband and two young children. She’s hopelessly devoted to unconventional love and pizza. When she isn’t reading or mom-ing, she’s writing moody, broody, swoony romance.
blog_review

Jesse’s future appeared bright as he was attending college, was a lacrosse star and had a way with the ladies until it all came crashing down and he finds himself back in Rivers Edge trying to pick up the pieces. If you don’t look below the surface, he appears confident and arrogant, but underneath he is damaged and will do anything to protect those he cares about even if it is from himself.

Allie has endured a heartbreaking loss and is feeling a little lost as adjusts to her new normal. During the last year she has shown her strength and resilience, but she is broken by her past as well. She is going to college and works at Blackbear, Jesse’s sister’s bar which brings them into each other’s worlds once again.

Words can not explain how perfect these two are for each other. She is the one person who sees the hidden depths to Jesse and she make him want to be a better man. They are kindred souls who help each other heal and watching their relationship unfold was beautiful to watch.

Synopsis:

 

Smoke

I know women. I love them and they love me.

I don’t chase them; they line up and I pick out whichever takes my fancy.

Only now there’s her.

She’s unimpressed, disinterested. She’s different and I can’t look away.

I don’t understand her, but I need to make her look. I need to make her see me and then never look away again.

Sometimes the things that don’t come easily are the things that we should fight the hardest for, and with Riley I’m in for the fight of my life

 

Riley

I’ve been hurt and my heart’s still bruised.

I know who Smoke is. I’ve seen it all before, the arrogant ‘king of the world’ attitude.

So I’m mean, cold, and harsh because offense is the best defense when it comes to protecting myself.

Only what if he’s not who I think he is?

I don’t want to want him, but I just can’t help myself, and sometimes what we shouldn’t want is exactly what we need.

 

Review

Riley is a gaming programmer who has recently broken up with her cheating ex.    When she is offered a two month contract in Texas it is exactly what she needs as it will get her out of town and allow her to see her friend Rosie as well.

Smoke is a member of the Doomsday Sinners MC who can have any woman he wants whenever he wants.    When his friend Rosie introduces him to Riley he believes that she will just be the next woman to attract his interest until she turns him down flat.    Rather than  being deterred it only makes him more determined and the challenge is on!

Riley is feisty and full of attitude and Smoke shows that he was only waiting for the right woman.    It was great to not only see Smoke and Riley’s relationship unfold but to catch up with the other characters we know and love.   I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

When her cover is blown, she is forced to trust a man she just met, fighting their way out of one battle after another. But there’s something about Lev that Reyna knows she can trust. And love.

Review

When Lev is assigned a task by the one man he can’t say deny, it sets him on a collision course with a woman who will change his life.

Reyna is a former CIA agent who has penetrated a group of well trained, highly skilled operatives to get information about their dangerous activities.

When her true identity is exposed it brings her and Lev together and sends them on an action packed adventure where the only people they can truly trust is each other. Full of twists, suspense and hot chemistry it was a pleasure getting to know these two strong, independent characters who not only share an intense chemistry but learn that they are much stronger together than apart.

🏖Review🏖

The conclusion of Evan and Mallory’s love story is here.   They have already been through so much and faced so many obstacles and struggles to be together however there are still a few challenges that they must face.

Everything that they have gone through has proven that they are soul mates and that they are so much stronger together than apart.   The evolution that both these characters have made as they realize what is truly important is inspiring and it was a pleasure to watch their relationship unfold.

Blurb:
The day I saw Sylvie West standing next to the bride,
something moved in me I was certain had died.

I’d known her since she was a pain-in-the-rear kid, but she was my best friend’s cousin, and off limits.

He also told me he’d strangle me if I ever laid a hand on her.

When she downed tequila like water at the reception, and then danced on the table, all bets were off.

She was my kind of woman, and forbidden or not, I was going to make her mine.

Only when morning broke, I woke up to a different Sylvie—one who didn’t remember a single thing about the passion-filled night we’d shared.

Now, I had to prove I was the one who was meant for her.

After she put up one obstacle after another, the time had come to pull every trick out of my hat.

And Sylvie had no idea I was one tricky bastard.

But the last thing I expected was for her to turn the tables and play the last trick on me.

Excerpt:
I was dabbing at my coffee stain when a knock sounded on the door. “Come on in, Grey.”

The door opened, and he walked in. “It’s not Grey.”

My head jerked up to see Evan standing there. “What are you doing here?”

“Sorry for the subterfuge, but I had to find a way to see you. You’re quite stubborn, you know.”

“So you lied?”

He shrugged. “With permission.”

I gawked at him. “What does that mean?”

“It means I spoke to Grey first. He said it was okay.”

“Oh, my God. You’re both conspiring against me.”

“Sweets, I only wanted to return something of yours and you gave me such a hard time of it, this was the only way I knew how.”

“What are you talking about?”

He reached into his pocket and pulled out a thong. Then the bastard dangled it in front of me. “Recognize this?”

Shit. It was mine. I went to snatch it, but he pulled it out of my reach. “Oh, no. It won’t be that easy. In order to get it back, you have to go to dinner with me.”

“What? That’s blackmail.”

“Not really. What will I do to you if you don’t go?”

He really couldn’t do anything.

“See, you get my point. We can go anywhere you’d like, as long as it’s a sit down dinner where they have a great wine list.”

“And if I choose not to go?”

He smirked. “That’s easy. I get to keep this.”

Then the asshole put it up to his nose and inhaled. “Ahh, my favorite scent.”

Review

The story begins with the wedding of Pearson and Rose and it turns out they aren’t the only ones getting lucky that night.    Evan is Pearson’s best friend and is successful, sexy and determined to remain single, so he has been warned to stay away from Rose.    Rose is Pearson’s cousin who has crushed on Evan for a while but the last thing she needs is a broken heart, so her family has told her to keep her distance.    A few drinks too many leads to a steamy night that Rose wants to forget, and Evan wants to repeat.

One night with Rose was it all it took for Evan to realize they are meant to be but convincing her and her family may be his biggest challenge yet.

This story has the perfect combination of hot chemistry and witty banter, but it also has all the feels.    Not only are Rose and Evan great characters but all the secondary characters add so much to the story and leave us wanting more of the West sisters.

Review

Monroe has learnt from an early age that the only one she can count on in her life is her and she allows very few people close. She is a construction foreman who forging her way through a male dominated field so when Benton, her best friend who owns a construction company, asks for help to complete one of their jobs she is happy to assist.

The night before Monroe is scheduled to start her new job she meets a stranger at the bar and they have a steamy encounter however the joke is on her when she shows up to work and not only is Barrett her new boss but he is also her best friend’s brother. Let the fun begin!

Monroe is fiery, feisty and doesn’t back down from any challenge while Barrett is focused on ensuring the success of their business but Monroe raises feelings in him which he has never felt before. Hot chemistry and humorous banter make the perfect combination as two people who aren’t looking for love or a relationship find what they have always wanted in each other.
