Review:

This was my introduction to Noelle Adams, and it was an awesome introduction. I love finding new authors that I can add to my TBR list. This novel reads more like a novella. This book grabbed me by the fifth page and did not let go until the last page. This book is about “three girls that become friends because their brothers are best friends”. Emma and Noah are not the ideal couple, but can they over come the odds? You will have to read to find out. I liked that there is several sub-plots in this story line that I hope the author is going to explore in the next books in this series. I look forward to the next book and can’t wait. I recommend this fun, fast paced, entertaining read.

Fifteen years ago, three girls were thrown together because their brothers were best friends. Now they’re all grown up, and their brothers are grown up too. The Tea for Two series tells their stories. Fans of contemporary women’s fiction will become engrossed in this new series by New York Times Bestselling Author, Noelle Adams.

Description:

After too many bad decisions in romance, Emma is going on a man-fast. For the next six months, she’s fasting from men. No sex. No dating. No soulful gazes. No fond memories of her first crush. She’s going to spend the time focusing on her career, getting in touch with herself, and helping her two best friends with the launch of their new tea room. No men.

And that includes her brother’s best friend, Noah Hart, who has just returned to their hometown.

She doesn’t want Noah anyway. He might be even hotter than he was before, but he’s not a nice guy anymore. He’s made a fortune by acting ruthless in business, and the last thing he’s looking for is small-town domestic life. He doesn’t even want to be in town again, but a sick grandmother guilted him into it. Then he has nerve to not even recognize Emma when he sees her again. Maybe it’s been seven years, but a decent guy would remember his best friend’s little sister.

Noah is not a decent guy. Anyway, Emma is on a man-fast. And she doesn’t want Noah.

At all.

Excerpt:

She waited to see if Noah would complain about her walking home alone at night, but he didn’t. He just said, “I’ll walk with you.”

She started to object—automatically but for no particular reason—but she stopped the words from coming out. There was no reason he couldn’t walk a couple of blocks with her. He would probably insist on it, even if she tried to object.

“Okay,” she said. “Thanks.”

They didn’t speak as they walked down the sidewalk and crossed the street to her building. But she was intensely aware of Noah’s presence beside her. It felt so strong, so masculine, so… man.

Why the hell did she always seem to want him so much?

She should know better by now.

She was feeling strangely shy when they reached the front entrance to her building, and she turned to face him, dropping her eyes. “Thanks again.”

“No problem.” There was that husky note in his voice, the one she really liked.

She didn’t dare to look up at him. “I could have made it on my own, you know.”

“I know that.” God, just the sound of his voice sent shivers up and down her spine.

“No matter what you think, I’m not a little girl anymore.”

She had no idea why she was saying this. She was just rambling, too nervous to think through the words that were coming out of her mouth. And she was seriously having to hold herself back from reaching out toward him, taking hold his shirt and pulling him closer.

He smelled so incredibly good. Not anything as strong as aftershave, but something warm and expensive.

She wanted to smell him even more.

She wanted to feel him.

She wanted to taste him.

She wanted to…

He reached out and tilted up her face so she was looking at him. “I know you’re not a little girl, Emma.”

Emma.

He’d called her Emma.

“You do?” she whispered, the world shuddering in front of her eyes.

“Damn it, Emma,” he rasped thickly, raising his other arm so he was holding her face in both hands. “Surely you know I’m seeing you as anything but a little girl.”

She was trembling now, and there was absolutely no way she could hold herself back. He was holding her face like she was precious, and the look in his eyes…

So filled with heat and hunger. She’d never seen anything like it.

She grabbed onto his shirt like she’d always wanted to and drew him even nearer, and then he was finally, finally kissing her.

Naturally, she was kissing him back.

Review: Chance at Redemption, by Samatha Harris Reply

5 out of 5 Stars

Available For Purchase On:

Review:

This is the first book I have read by Samatha Harris. Ms Harris had me by the third page and I could not put my Kindle down until I reached the end. I really enjoyed the relationship between the two main characters Liam and Gwen. The way they rubbed each other wrong and irritated each other was very believable and relatable to real life. Can Gwen over come her old habits? and find true happiness? Can Liam learn to forgive? You will need to read this fun, enjoyable book to find out. This is one of those books that you can escape with and feel good when you finish. I recommend this book.

Description:

Gwen Stevens had a privileged life until her father spoke three little words that turned her world upside down. “You’re cut off.”

Broke and desperate, Gwen is forced to accept a waitressing job, but this glimmer of hope has a price. As if being a cocktail waitress isn’t bad enough, she has to do it in a dive bar called The Den, and her bad luck doesn’t stop there. She also needs to deal with the new owner, a blue-eyed, self-righteous ass determined to make her life miserable.

Liam Sinclair walked away from the entitlement and obligation his family planned for him, vowing to make his own way in the world…

Adjusting to life as a new business owner, Liam has experienced more than his fair share of setbacks. When his only waitress breaks her leg, his sister takes it upon herself to hire a replacement—a spoiled, self-indulgent hothead with too much makeup and more than enough attitude. Gwen represents the world he’s trying to escape, a world of excess and greed that he was never cut out for.

Appearances can be deceiving, and first impressions aren’t always right…

Despite their apparent differences, the tension between them turns to a fiery passion that neither of them can resist. Together they find balance and learn to appreciate the simpler things in life. But Gwen soon discovers that old habits die hard, and one mistake is all it takes to ruin everything.

Forgiveness must be earned, but even a villain deserves a chance at redemption…

Review:

I loved this book. *Warning…Cliffhanger*. I really am enjoying everything that is happening to Vivienne. All of the men in her life, past, present, and maybe future, make an appearance in this book. I know who I want her to choose, but I’m not telling. The main character Vivienne (Viv) is a strong woman and I just love watching her grow in this series. Ms Gordon has created a fabulous story line and I can’t wait to see where she will take Viv in this next book. This really is a fun series. In order to understand where Vivienne has come from, what she has been through, you need to start with the first book Fearless Flying. I Highly Recommend this book and series.

Review:

I have been waiting for this book and the minute it hit my Kindle I dropped everything and read it in one sitting. I have to say I LOVED this book and this series. I have laughed and cried with each of these books and these characters. Ms Willard is a truly talented author. I wish I could give this more that 5 stars.

Heated Sweets is an amazing story dealing with a real life problem too many women and couples must face. Endometriosis is very real and heartbreaking. Ms Willard had me at the Prologue, and the tears begain. I have to applaude Ms Willard for the way she explained and bared her own heartbreak in this book.

I love all of the women in this book. The strength, love, support, struggles, growth, friendship that is more like family, that these women have for each other is fabulous. Each of them know that there is always someone there to have their backs.

Heated Sweets is the third book in the A Taste of Love series. I highly recommend reading Frosted Sweets and Sugary Sweets before you read Heated Sweets for continuity and understanding of what Frankie has been through. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and this series. You will laugh and cry with this feel good book. Don’t forget the kleenex and maybe a cupcake or two. Thank you A.M. Willard for sharing your talent with us.

Description:

Do you believe someone can change your whole perspective on life? I didn’t, but I do now…

It all happens when I meet my sexy neighbor, Evan Taylor.

My name’s Francesca, better known as Frankie, and I’ve been hiding behind my camera for years. It’s what I know and love- not to mention the best way to disguise myself. It’s easy to make life look perfect from this side, even when yours is in shambles. My chronic illness is my biggest insecurity, and what I not only hide from myself, but from the world. Good thing I have a group of friends who can supply me with massive overloads of cupcakes, or life would totally stink.

Brody’s always been my crutch, but I knew deep down that he wouldn’t be the one I’d end up with. We just had to find a way to let the past go as we moved forward with our search of happiness. He’ll always be my hero, but sometimes in life you need more than a cape.

Evan Taylor is exciting, and doesn’t expect me to give him the world. He accepts me for who I am with no additional pressure. Evan’s also the one who can offer me the one thing I think I can’t give him – life. With the passion and desire that we hold for each other–it might be enough to win in the end and come out from behind the camera.

Review:

This story was hot!! The story had a character that was very sheltered and it made for a story that was sweet and hot.  Griffith was so strong and while he had some problems of his own the story would not have been the same with out them.

Reviewed by Brave One

Description:

ER nurse Sonnet Mendoza’s new housemate Griffith Parker proves there is more to a man than meets the eye, and shows her there’s more to life than just her career. ALWAYS FAITHFUL Sheltered and cosseted, Sonnet Mendoza abided by her papi’s wishes her whole life: no boys, studies first and always. Now an ER nurse in a busy Chicago hospital, medical school is so close Sonnet can taste it—just like her father always wanted. Just like she can taste all the things she wants, like Griffith Parker, the man of her dreams and her new housemate. Working “graves” in a large hospital as a security guard while attending the police academy during the day doesn’t leave ex-Marine Griffith Parker any personal time, but after meeting the beautiful Sonnet Mendoza business as usual is anything but. Sassy, smart…and interested in him, too? Except, she’s made an art of keeping her distance, and she’s been clear that her plans don’t include him. But the heart wants what the heart wants. His wants Sonnet. He’ll put it on the line to win her.

Excerpt:

Nails scraped along the wood of her bedroom door, and she turned her head toward it. She knew without a doubt he was there, behind it, the way you know someone’s watching you. The doorknob moved as if it would turn, and she caught her breath.

If he comes in here, I’ll let him do what he wants. I’ll welcome it.

The thought scared and thrilled her at once. She wanted him. She was so not in control with this man, and it terrified her. But on the other hand, she hungered for him. The doorknob returned to its normal position after a minute. His footsteps retreated. When his door closed, she stared at the ceiling, and tried to breathe.

Damn.

Sonnet waited a good fifteen minutes before leaving her room to take a shower and get ready before she headed back to the kitchen. The clean freshness gave her a sense of control, as if it would ward off the carnal urges Griff brought out of her.

She opened the kitchen curtains, cracked a window, turned on some music, and set about to actually make breakfast this time. Once the eggs were scrambled and the bacon sizzled, she fixed plates for them.

His door creaked open, and his footsteps echoed in the hall. She wiped her hands on a dishtowel and set it on the counter. “Hey, so I made us bacon, eggs and toas—” Her voice caught in her throat when she saw the set of his face.

He walked straight toward her, determined. And it seemed like nothing–a simple movement, a play of light and shadow in a sun-splashed patch by the open kitchen window, but she knew, inexplicably, he was about to kiss her.

New Release: The Substitute (The Bros Series Book 1), by Xavier Neal 1

Available For Purchase On:

*FREE with Kindle Unlimited*
Description:
Nate

Being a substitute teacher is good for me.
It’s sensible.
Logical.
Abandoning my plans for a career in the film industry and a life full of fun, albeit slightly reckless, actions was the responsible thing to do.
That’s who I am now.
That’s who I’ve become.
Mr. Boring. Mr. Predictable. Mr. Anal Retentive.
At least that’s what I thought until one irresistible student breathes life back into the version of me I’ve been desperately trying to suffocate.
Being with Ainsley isn’t a want. It’s a need.
And I’m willing do anything to fulfill it.

Ainsley

I’ve spent my entire life ashamed of who I am.
Who my mother is. What she does.
Being forced to attend a private school where people endlessly whisper about it is only bearable because I know exactly what’s in my future.
I know exactly where I’m going.
I know exactly what to do to get there.
Or at least I thought I did.
One class with him and suddenly my entire world was missing one very important piece.
Being with Nate isn’t just about sex.
It’s about loving life in a way I never imagined.
The situation isn’t ideal, but I’ll do whatever it takes to be with him.

Spotlight: Painting Sky, by Rita Branches Reply

Available For Purchase On:

Description:

Nobody ever said life was easy…

People pleaser, Jane Skylar wants nothing more than to earn her art degree, start her life, and bask in the bliss of living with her boyfriend.

But things don’t always go as planned…

Struggling with her creative side, Jane finds herself in turmoil, often confiding in her roommate – another, more talented art student, Keith Hale. Keith just so happens to be her boyfriend’s older, brooding brother. After a devastating breakup, Jane turns to Keith for comfort. But when the lines blur between roommate and lover, Jane’s life becomes more complicated than ever before.

When Keith’s past comes back to haunt him, their lives all get turned upside down, forcing the truth to surface. Now Jane must fight for what she wants–even if it hurts everyone she loves.
