L.A. REVIEWS EL DIABLO...BY M. ROBINSON

Image
In a very short period of time, M. Robinson has become one of my "go to" authors. I have enjoyed every book of hers I've read and this spin off of the Good Ole Boys series has only solidified her place in my author file.

If you're looking for a story that's going to take you on a roller coaster ride of emotion, go right to your Kindle and one click El Diablo. I promise you will be glad that you did.

If you read Crave Me, you've already met Alejandro Martinez. He's the Colombian crime lord uncle of Briggs/Daisy and if you thought he was intense in Crave Me, wait until you get to know him better in El Diablo.

El Diablo begins when Alejandro is a teenager. He's fifteen years old and trying to sneak out of the house to go to a party. His sister and her best friend are trying to talk him out of this. Being a fifteen year old boy he wants to go out and party, so he does. What happens when he gets back, is something no fifteen year old should ever go through. …

LA REVIEWS TWISTED PALACE...BY ERIN WATT

Image
I used to be scared of the future, I didn't know where I'd end up, didn't know if the anger and bitterness inside me would ever truly go away, if I could ever feel worthy or find someone who'd be able to see through the asshole I pretended to be to the rest of the world.


But I'm not scared anymore, and I did find someone who sees me. Who really, truly see me. And I see her, too. Ella Harper is all I'm ever going to see, because she's my future. She's my steel and my fire and my salvation.

She's everything.

Yes, I have been absolutely ruined by the Royals. Reed Royal is my everything.

If you haven't read the first two books in this series, Paper Princess and Broken Prince, seriously, one click them or buy them right now! I had to own both the ebook and hard copy because I am obsessed with this series.

My most anticipated book so far this year was 
Twisted Palace. And like the two books before, it did not disappoint.  There are so many twists and turns …

RILEY REVIEWS NEIGHBOR DEAREST BY PENELOPE WARD

Image
I am convinced that Penelope Ward can create a five star read out of a grocery list. I've enjoyed everything I have read by her, but she's absolutely outdone herself with Neighbor Dearest.

She took a secondary character from Stepbrother Dearest that I wouldn't have even thought about again and gave her a story of her own. 

Honestly, I probably would have never thought of Chelsea Jameson again. I mean Elec and 
Greta got back together. Which was what I wanted to happen in Stepbrother Dearest. I never really gave a second thought to Chelsea's broken heart so I have to say I'm so glad Penelope Ward gave Chelsea a voice to tell her story.

In case you don't know, Chelsea was absolutely devastated by her break up with Elec. So broken that she wouldn't visit her sister in New York City fearful that she might run into Elec. So broken that she was spending a bunch of money on phone therapy with a super expensive shrink. 

In the midst of all the heartbreak, Chelsea's …

EMILY REVIEWS TWISTED REALITY BY HEIDI MCLAUGHLIN

Image
As you probably have figured out by now I am a huge fan of Heidi McLaughlin’s books, and the reason is simple…Consistency.Her stories are always intriguing and they keep my interest.Her characters are always swoon-worthy, sexy and I can easily identify with them (or when required I feel real hatred towards them). Her writing is smooth and enjoyable to read. What’s not to love?
Twisted Reality is another winner from Heidi McLaughlin.A continuation of the big cliffy in Blinded Reality, where I was left crazed!!
Joshua Wilson is every girl’s fantasy and in Twisted Reality you get to really see what a good guy he really is.He’s honest, emotional and he just really wants to be a good man for Joey! I am seriously in love with this guy!!
Joey Wilson is who every girl wants to be.I mean can you imagine getting married to your celebrity crush?Gah!I would die!I really love Joey and the way she stays true to herself, she really is a nice girl who has fallen in love with the real Josh Wilson, not ju…

RILEY REVIEWS AN ACT OF OBSESSION...BY K.C. LYNN

Image
After I've laid claim to every inch of her body, I hold her in my arms until she fall asleep and I decide this very second that I'm going to keep her forever.

Wow! Wow! Wow! I don't think I have the words to do justice to this review of K.C. Lynn's An Act Of Obsession. This story gripped me from the prologue and didn't let go until the end. Yes, I sat down and read it all in one session. 

I absolutely enjoyed both other books in the Acts of Honor Series, but K.C. Lynn outdid herself with this story. An Act Of Obsession is truly a story about two broken people making each other whole.

Sophie Parish has survived an unthinkable horror that forces her to leave behind everything she has ever known and loved. Fortunately, she finds a new home in Sunset Bay and has the good fortune to be working for Sheriff Cooper McKay. It's always good when the original Men of Honor are on your side.

But that's not what this story is about. I do love How K.C. Lynn keeps the original…

RILEY REVIEWS SEARCHING FOR HARMONY...BY KELLY ELLIOTT

Image
Never did I ever for one minute think Kelly Elliott could make me love a book boyfriend more than Gunner Mathews. She came close with Thano, but hands down I am ridiculously in love with Preston Ward.

OMG Kelly! Dark messy hair, light green eyes, sick body and HE'S A FIREFIGHTER! I know, I know, Riley you're so superficial. But seriously looks are the first thing you see. Keep reading though because Preston is just as beautiful inside as he is outside. He's loyal, caring and adores his family.

I'm not going to lie to you. The beginning of this book. The way Harmony and Preston meet is completely gut wrenching. But, as bad as it is when their eyes meet, Preston can't get Harmony out of his mind.

Harmony has suffered quite possibly the worst tragedy that can fall on another person. She's broken and literally left with only her older brother Jake for support. You'll find out all the details when you read Searching For Harmony.

Harmony has made quite an impression …

RILEY REVIEWS BOSSMAN...BY VI KEELAND

Image
Can you say sexiest boss ever? Not sure whether it's his name Chase Parker (I am very partial to the name Chase, thank you Molly McAdams)or the cover photo and teasers of Chase Parker being Bossman. Just know, if you're looking for a book that is swoon worthy from cover to cover go and one click Bossman now!

Did I mention swoon worthy? Because, I literally fell in love with everything about Chase Parker. From his sexy tousled hair to those chocolate brown eyes. Add to the mix his broad chest, toned arms and abs and he just keeps getting better. Then you get a peek at the tattoo on his ribs and the nipple ring. Gone. I tell you. I was gone.

Then some guys go and open their mouths and ruin it all. Not bossman, from the he told the story of how and Reese meeting as middle schoolers, he had me totally wrapped around his little finger. I almost forgot he's also brilliant, and any man that can go from wearing a thousand dollar suit to some gym shorts and look amazing is perfect in…

RILEY REVIEWS FILTHY ENGLISH...BY ILSA MADDEN-MILLS

Image
So I was a little apprehensive to start Ilsa Madden-Mills Filthy English. Given the reference to Romeo and Juliet, I was a little worried because we all know how their story ended, right?

Well I'm super glad I gave in and read it because Filthy English is one of my favorite reads of the summer.

Seriously, I couldn't put this book down and when I finished, I wanted more. And Dax Blay? He's been starring in my fantasies from the minute he sat next to Remi at Masquerade Bar.

Remi Montague, a soon to be college senior has been dumped by her fiancé two weeks before their wedding. Even though she's heart broken, she decides to take her honeymoon in London with her best friend Lulu. Lulu is a riot and a total party girl.

One night in London Remi and Lulu end up at...you guessed it...Masquerade Bar. While Lulu hits the dance floor, Remi sits adorably awkwardly at the bar. Then he walks in and sits down next to her. You can literally feel the electricity between them from the…

EMILY'S REVIEW STONED...BY MANDI BECK

Image
I NEED YOU, TO BE ME… My new favorite words from any book! <3 o:p="">
4:52… That’s 4:52 a.m., which is when I looked at the clock having just finished Stoned by Mandi Beck.When I tell you I couldn’t put this book down, believe me that I am now ready to pass out having only had 3 hours of sleep last night!!There is nothing in the world like the feeling of connecting with a book and its characters and Stoned did just that for me.I found myself personally sympathetic to Stone’s character as well as Willow, and I think that is what has completely blown me away.
Stone has become the ultimate bad boy rock star. Drugs and sex and more drugs and sex and damn the consequences.It was absolutely devastating reading Stone’s fall from grace and hitting rock bottom.Stone not only hurt himself, but his band mates and his girl, the love of his life Willow.He completely decimated their relationship and her. It was dirty and disgusting and heartbreaking, but it was honest and realistic an…
