DAWNS 5 star Review

5 amazing stars.
I love this book!! It’s hard to believe that it is debut book from Adriana Locke. It’s captivating and magnetic. You will not be able to put it down. On the occasions, I was forced to stop reading it, it stayed on my mind and called to me. Adriana has a gift of writing memorable and believable characters. I fell head over heels with the four main characters, Jada, Cane, Kari and Max. I honestly love them all. They all brought this book to life and are equally important. There is a subplot I did not see coming. That involves some suspense, action and a villain. That only added to the book. Dueling POV’s which I love. Adriana knows how to write the male POV. Totally alpha male. Bravo.
This is a story about letting go of the past and starting over.
Jada Stanley has gone through a bad divorce and has moved in with her sister Kari. All she wants to do is get her life back. Just as she’s settling in, she meets Cane Alexander. He’s Kari’s man Max’s best friend.  Well let’s just say Cane is everything Jada does not want or need. He’s a true hedonist and playboy. He comes off like he’s God’s gift to woman. He thinks, he has it all figured out. He has rules he lives by…. Pretty much sex with no strings attached. But before you judge a book by its cover, underneath all his bull, Cane has a huge heart. This is not your typical cat and mouse story. These characters have layers and depth. Jada is a fantastic leading lady and an inspiration. Not only is she strong but she puts her self first. Refusing to make the same mistake. Ought she does not make it easy for Cane and good for her!!! But sometimes in life, everything you don’t think you want is everything you need. There’s an exception to every rule!! Don’t even get me started on Cane. I love this man. He slowly worked his way into my heart. By transforming into the man he’s supposed to be. He is all sorts of yummy and every girls fantasy. One of my favorite things about this book was hearing their thoughts in between their dialog. Brilliant. Their relationship and this book are like a drug, addictive!
It also has more then one prominent relationship …. It has one of the best bromances I have ever read. (I would say it’s as good as COLTON and BECKS!) Cane and Max stole my heart.  They had me cracking up! Beside the easy banter, I found their friendship so endearing. True bros! Always having each other’s back.
Then there is the blooming relationship between Max and Kari. These two are so funny and sweet! They need their own book!!
I don’t want to give too much away. I could go on and on but I will stop now. As you can see, I can not rave enough about this book. There isn’t one thing I would change. Go get it now!!






If I close my eyes, maybe she’ll disappear.

That was amazing. So good, Cane.”

Maybe not.

The woman nestled against me, her hand draping across my body. She stroked my skin, the intimacy of the action curling my stomach.

I switched on the bedside lamp, letting my eyes adjust to the bright light. Glancing at the clock, I pushed her hand away.

It’s not too late. She can still go home.

Sitting up, I swung my legs over the side of the bed; my body groaned in response. I stretched my arms overhead in an attempt to work some life back into my exhausted muscles.

This girl was a decent choice for a last minute decision. Memories of her contorted in a variety of wicked ways, screaming my name, made my dick harden again.

Do you want me to get us something to eat?” she asked.

Her nails grazed down my back and I moved out of her reach. Her touch, like her voice, was more annoying than I remembered it being a few hours earlier.

That’s because you just dumped a load.

I twisted around. Her blonde hair was spread across my pillows, black makeup smeared across her face. A part of me wanted to tell her she looked like hell, but a bigger part of me didn’t care enough to point it out. I just needed her gone.

She rolled onto her back, cheap perfume wafting through the air. She pulled the sheets tight around her body.

I’m going to have to do laundry. Hell, I’ll probably just have to burn the sheets to get rid of that smell.

I was thinking I would grab us some hamburgers. I could pick up some things for breakfast while I’m out.”

I cringed at the implications saturating her voice. “You’re going to need to tone that shit down.”

What are you talking about?”

Look, I have things to do tonight.” Her face was familiar but her name—not so much.

Oh, that’s fine. I can just wait here while you do what you need to do.” She flashed me her biggest smile and settled back into the sheets, looking way too comfortable in my bed.

No. You’re going to need to get up, get dressed, and go home.” I massaged my temples with my fingertips, a migraine inching its way into my skull.

For fuck’s sake! Why isn’t this ever as easy as they make it out to be? Maybe I should get them to sign some shit, a ‘This is a Fuck and Only a Fuck’ disclaimer or something.

I really have no plans for tomorrow, Cane.” She licked her lips, still swollen from moments before.

We discussed this. We fuck. You leave. You know this.”

She had the nerve to look hurt.

I didn’t think you were going to say that once we were done.”

It was amazing. It is always amazing with me.” I flashed her a grin and literally watched her swoon.

That never gets old.

Look, I don’t do this ‘sex and a sandwich’ thing, but that is not a newsflash.”

But …”

Why does it feel like we’ve been here before?” Frustration took over and I took a deep breath, trying to keep myself calm. All I needed was a hot little body to dump my stress into for a little while and I had made no illusions otherwise. She agreed to this before she followed me home.

Why does it have to be complicated now? I ran my fingers through my short blond hair, scrubbing my scalp in annoyance.

When I was here a few months ago, we had lunch, too. Remember? We sat out on the patio.”

Remember her face. Do not triple dip this one.

You don’t understand how this works.” I glanced at her reclining against my pillows and fought hard to not sound as brusque as I felt. “I have a bunch of shit to do. You really need to go.”

She sighed dramatically as she got up and found her jeans on the floor. I watched her ass jiggle as she pulled them on slowly, undoubtedly for my benefit.

It worked.

I had to restrain myself from grabbing her and fucking her one more time, just for good measure.

That is only going to make getting her out of here even harder and she simply isn’t good enough to waste any more time on.

Instead, I sat and enjoyed the show. She turned to face me as she pulled her shirt over her head, her eyes never leaving mine. She tucked her bra in her purse.

With a final glance over her shoulder, presumably to give me time to change my mind, she was gone.

And I was alone again—just the way I liked it.

The Art of Love and Sinners Grove by AB MICHAELS SPOTLIGHT

Celebrating the Release of Sinner’s Grove,
Here’s the Book That Begins the Saga …
Free on Amazon September 23-24: The Art of Love

Title: The Art of Love

Author: A.B. Michaels

Series: Sinner’s Grove (Prequel)

With nothing but a strong back and a barrel full of ambition, August Wolff finds wealth beyond measure in the frozen goldfields of the Klondike.  Success, however, comes at an unbearably high price.  Now Gus walks alone, and all the money in the world can’t buy him what he needs.

In the late 1800’s, when women are largely seen and not heard, Amelia Starling longs for a life limited only by her imagination.  Blessed with abundant artistic talent and an even bigger heart, she moves to the boom town of San Francisco, hoping to make her mark and living with the pain of a sacrifice no woman should have to make.

Two wounded yet defiant individuals meet at the dawn of a new century, discovering a passion eclipsing all they’d ever known.  Longing to build a life together, can they overcome the dictates of a cruel and spiteful society?…The Art of Love is the prequel to the just-released contemporary romantic suspense novel, Sinner’s Grove.  Sinner’s Grove is available today and tomorrow only for 99 cents on Amazon.


Title: Sinner’s Grove

Author: A.B. Michaels

Series: Sinner’s Grove #1

A startling discovery when she was 14 left San Francisco artist Jenna Bergstrom estranged from her family; unforeseen tragedy only sharpened her loneliness. But now her ailing grandfather needs her expertise to re-open the family’s once-famous artists’ retreat on the California coast. The problem? She’ll have to face architect Brit Maguire, the ex-love of her life.

Seven years ago, Brit spent a magical time with the girl of his dreams, only to have her disappear from his life completely. Now she’s back, helping with the biggest architectural renovation of his career. No matter how deep his feelings still run, Brit can’t afford the distraction of Jenna Bergstrom, because something is going terribly wrong with the project at Sinner’s Grove.

As Jenna and Brit struggle to keep their passion in check, unseen enemies close in, bent on destroying more than just her grandfather’s dream. Through the prism of ever-increasing danger, Jenna finally discovers what true family—and true love—is all about. But will it be too late?


Excerpt from Art of Love
       Dressed in formal attire, Gus  arrived an hour after the party had begun. No sense in milling around too long and having people think he actually wanted to be there. He talked to a few people he recognized and lingered at the back of the ballroom, watching the hoopla unfold. Turns out he’d made it to the Firestones’ Pacific Heights mansion just in time.
“And now, may we present The Family, a painting by Amelia Starling.” Edward and Josephine, Will’s parents, jointly pulled a silk cord and the curtain rose, so to speak, on a huge canvas.
The guests erupted in a collective “Oh!” The painting was incredible, unlike any family portrait Gus had ever seen. He started to move through the crowd to see it better, but froze at what, or rather who, he saw next.
“And we are happy to introduce the creator of this brilliant work, Miss Amelia Starling.”
The woman who stepped forward, smiling at the crowd, was none other than Ruthie … but not the sweet young girl Gus had met several weeks before. No. This woman was beyond beautiful, her eyes with some kind of color on them that made them seem even larger and more exotic than before, her gorgeous dark hair swept up with some kind of shiny netting woven through it, and glittery diamonds hanging from her delicate ears. And her body. Lord have mercy. Her body was encased in a long, deep-colored dress, a kind of red, he thought, that displayed her breasts and every other curve with elegance and grace. She was magnificent.
Gus was furious.
He strode through the crowd but stopped so that she could see him as she talked to one admirer after another. At one point she saw him and her eyes grew wide. He continued to stare at her and she didn’t look away. The man she was talking to—a geezer with money, no doubt—finally had to touch her arm to get her attention. Good.
He waited, patiently, until the crowed had thinned and the Firestones had announced the buffet was open. Then he made his move.
“I take it this is what you meant by ‘a little of this and a little of that’,” he said.
She smiled awkwardly, looking around the room, probably for someone to come and bail her out.
“No one’s going to rescue you this time … Ruthie.” He stepped closer and noticed she was breathing rapidly; it was doing wonderful things to her cleavage. “Who is Ruthie, by the way? Did you just make her up on the spot?”
“No. It’s my middle name,” she explained in a quiet voice. “Look, Mr. Wolff …”
“Oh, so you know my name.”
“I knew who you were the instant I saw you.” Her chin rose. “Your … reputation precedes you.”
“Ah. Well, I’ll tell you what I tell everybody else: don’t believe everything you read.” He cocked his head. “Why did you lie about who you were?”
She shrugged her beautiful shoulders. “I don’t know. I guess I wanted to hear an honest opinion of my work. You would hardly have been straight with me had you known I painted it.”
Gus leaned in to whisper in her ear. She smelled like lavender. “I assure you, Miss Starling, I would be nothing but straight with you.”
The young woman stepped back and glared at him. “I’m sure you would be, Mr. Wolff, until the next distraction turned your head.” She made a point of looking around the room. “Speaking of which, where is the melodious Miss Lindemann? I don’t see her anywhere.”
This woman was a pip. Gus wanted more of her. He captured her gaze and answered calmly. “Miss Lindemann and I aren’t seeing each other anymore. I haven’t been with a woman since before you and I met.” He mimicked her perusal of the ballroom, even though most of the guests had migrated to the dining area. “Come to think of it, where is your swain—or swains, as the case may be? Let’s see, there’s Charles, from the other night, and then there’s your live-in. What’s his name? Sander? My my, how do you keep them all straight?” He smiled wickedly. “Oh dear, there’s that word ‘straight’ again.”
Miss Starling’s delectable face, which had shown wariness before, now exploded into a storm of outrage. Apparently so mad she didn’t care who saw her, she pulled her arm back to slap Gus’s face. He caught her arm easily and wrapped it around his waist. Once again he pulled her close and nuzzled her. “I don’t give a damn who you’re with today, as long as you’re with me tomorrow.”
“That is never going to happen,” she hissed.
“Never say never,” he said, letting his breath caress her ear. He let go of her and stepped back, his voice rising to a normal level and his tone serious and heartfelt. “I am giving it to you straight, Miss Starling. I don’t know a lot about art, but I do know how something makes me feel. Your work is astonishing. You know how to capture the … what shall I call it? The truth of a given moment. That is rare and something to be very, very proud of.”
The siren opened her mouth but no words came out. As they stared at each other, Will walked up. “Ah, I see you’ve finally met Lia,” he said. “Isn’t she spectacular?”

            Keeping his eyes on her, Gus concurred with a murmured, “Yes indeed. Spectacular.”

Cover Reveal: Love, in Spanish by Karina Halle




“She sat beside me on

the bus – and she changed my whole life.”

Successful, wealthy

and absurdly handsome – Spanish ex-football

player Mateo Casalles seemed like he had it all. A high-society wife, an

adorable little girl, and flashy apartments in Madrid and Barcelona only

sweetened the deal. But there was more to Mateo than met the eye – a life of

uncertainty and regret that colored his black and white world.

That was until Vera

Miles came into his life like a shooting star. Tattooed, wild and young, Vera

seemed like Mateo’s polar opposite at first. But you can’t choose who you fall

in love with and the two lost

souls did everything they could to be together, all while suffering the grave


Now with Mateo

divorced and living in Madrid with Vera, there is a whole new set of challenges

and setbacks facing the couple and rocking the foundation of their star-crossed


Unfortunately for

them, the brighter the star, the faster they burn.





“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”


I turn in my chair and give Vera a curious look. Yet another English saying that I don’t know. “I’m afraid I don’t understand.”


She gives me a soft but tired smile and sits down on the arm rest. I immediately wrap my arm around her waist and pull her down into my lap, where she comes to a rest with a giggle, her hair obscuring the impish smile on her face. No matter where she is, I can never stop touching her and now more than ever I need her to relax, to feel safe, to know I’m going to get us out of this.


“Explain,” I demand. “Or I will punish you with kisses.”


She raises her brow. “Followed by punishment by penis?”


I shrug. “That can be arranged. Now, tell me my Estrella.”


She sighs and buries her lips into my neck. I can’t help the small moan that escapes from me, nor my hardness building beneath her plump, round ass. I close my eyes and fight the urge to pick her up and take her to the bedroom, the only other way I know how to make her feel safe and sated, the only way I know how to escape.


“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” she says against my throat, “is a saying. I don’t know where it’s from but it means, well, nothing is scarier than a pissed off bitch.” She pauses, sucking in her breath and I know she fears she’s said the wrong thing. “Sorry,” she quickly adds and I feel her body tense up beneath my fingers. “I didn’t mean that Isabel is a bitch.”


She is still so skittish over her words, the way she blurts things out, but it’s one of the reasons why I love her. I cup the back of her head with my hand and let the softness of her hair sink over me. “I know you didn’t,” I assure her. “And, well, she is being a bitch.”


“Can you blame her though?” she asks, her voice rising a pitch and when she pulls away from me, her eyes are wet. It breaks my heart. I’m getting tired of my heart breaking and I know that this isn’t going to change anytime soon. Every day there is another weight on us, another crack appears.


“No,” I tell her honestly. “I cannot blame her.”


A silence lapses over us, heavy like a wool cloak. It does this sometimes. What we’ve done, it coats us.


Finally she clears her throat. “She’s going to hurt for a long time,” she says. “She’s going to be angry. This isn’t going away. I thought everything was behind us now, that she’d move on. You’ve been divorced for a year, if she’s still this mad a year out…”


“She is mad because I am going back to Atletico,” I tell her. “She is mad because of the paparazzi, the way they are hounding us again. She is mad because she feels she is being made to look like a fool. If I had just stayed with my head down, she wouldn’t be doing this.”


“But you can’t live your life in fear, Mateo,” she tells me.


I smile at her and brush her sunset hair from her face. “And neither can you.”


She settles back against my body, sinks, conforms, melds. She is second skin. She is a part of myself I can’t bear to separate from. I pray I never have to. I pray we can survive whatever is coming our way.


And I can feel it coming, that tension, that storm rolling in the weeks and days.


I pick her up in my arms and for all her pillowy curves, she weighs nothing more than a feather. I take her down the hall to the bedroom, throw her on the bed. She glows in the afternoon sun that streams in through our window and it isn’t long before we are both naked and I am climbing over her, pinning her arms above her head and drinking in her body like the most beautiful, decadent wine.


I will devour her until all of this is gone.


I will consume her until we are all that’s left.


I push inside her and let my hunger take over.




He’s thirty-eight. I’m

twenty-three.He speaks Spanish.

I speak English.He lives in Spain.

I live in Canada.

He dresses in

thousand-dollar suits. I’m covered in tattoos.

He’s married and

has a five-year old daughter.

I’m single and

can’t commit to anyone or anything.

Until now. Because

when they say you can’t choose who you fall in love with, boy ain’t that the

f*#king truth.


To a restless

dreamer like Vera Miles, it sounded like the experience of a lifetime. Instead

of spending her summer interning for her astronomy major, she would fly to

Spain where she’d spend a few weeks teaching conversational English to

businessmen and women, all while enjoying free room and board at an isolated

resort. But while Vera expected to get a tan, meet new people and stuff herself

with wine and paella, she never expected to fall in love.

Mateo Casalles is

unlike anyone Vera has ever known, let alone anyone she’s usually attracted to.

While Vera is a pierced and tatted free spirit with a love for music and

freedom, Mateo is a successful businessman from Madrid, all sharp suits and

cocky Latino charm. Yet, as the weeks go on, the two grow increasingly close

and their relationship changes from purely platonic to something…more.

Something that

makes Vera feel alive for the first time.

Something that can

never, ever be.

Or so she thinks

Release Blitz and Reviews for Roxy Sloane’s, The Invitation


unnamed (7)


It’s my last night in town, and I’m not flying home until this girl is flat on her back with her ankles up around her shoulders and my dick so deep inside her she’ll never want another cock again.
Hot, English businessman Ashton made a pact not to screw up his friendship with Justine ‘JJ’ Jenkins over a cheap one-night stand. Now, two years later, he’s going out of his mind with wanting her — but she’s still off-limits. Now school is over, and his control is wearing thin. They’ve got one last night together, and he’s determined to make it an experience she’ll never forget.
The one girl he can’t have is going to have the night of her life. And with a sexy game of dare on the table, it won’t take long…
***Discover THE INVITATION, the red-hot new series from #1 erotica bestseller Roxy Sloane.**
Nicole’s 5 Star Review
 You know that scene in the movie “A League of Their Own” when Madonna comes out of confession and the priest opens the confessional door and his collar is askew, his hair is mussed and he appears to be sweating? Yeah, that was me after I finished reading Roxy Sloane’s The Invitation  (The Invitation series prequel). Holy hot and bothered, Batman!! This book is hot!! I mean fan your face, make sure the kids don’t read over your shoulder, “Honey, I don’t have a headache tonight” hot!! And it’s the beginning of a great story…
Justine and Ashton are best friends and have been throughout law school. They bust each other’s chops, cut the BS and truly adore each other. The reason that their friendship is so strong is because they vowed early on that they wouldn’t have sex with each other. That is until the night of the law school graduation, when they could fight their attraction no more. Let’s just say, things escalated quickly!!
This prequel has set the stage for an incredibly hot and interesting new series! For those who’ve read her before (like Abby), you KNOW that Roxy Sloane can write some hot stuff!! For those of us who are just getting introduced to her writing, Roxy has our full attention! Can’t wait to read the rest of this series!!
Dawn’s 5 Star Review
This my first book from Roxy Sloane… Damn woman you can get down and dirty and I love it. Holy lord of the hotness!!! I hope this book comes with a warning label that should read, so hot may cause a fire or ruined panties! Also, I do not recommend reading it in public. You should either be alone or preferably with your partner :) From the filthy dirty talking to the radiating heat from the two main characters, I could not stop blushing and squirming in my seat!! It’s a quick read but filled with so much. It’s fun, flirty, steamy and enticing with very intriguing characters. Sometimes a goods ole dirty, but a well written book is all you need. It brought a smile to my face and a pep to my step…..
We meet Justine and Ash. Two college buddies, both admitted players. Who swore never to ruin their friendship and get involved…. Until their final night together, then all their carnal desires come to fruition!! You will have to read it to find out happens. Two words: Smokin’ Hot!!!
This is the perfect invitation into a new series. I have become  huge fan of prequels lately. They draw you in and give you just enough of a taste.  Sometimes a quicky is all you need. Hee hee :) There’s nothing like a good tease. Anticipation is key while waiting for the next book. This book totally got many attention! I am so looking forward to more.
Kristine’s 5 Star Review
You must read The Invitation by Roxy Sloane, it is the Reading for Pleasure book of 2014! This is the first book I’ve read of Roxy’s and with this little taste from this prequel, I need more.  Roxy wrote this short story that hooked me from page one and leg clenching by paragraph 2. I really don’t know how it happened, just that this women is magical with her words, she uses them to make a whirl wind of sexiness engulfing you with no way out, not that you want one!
“I’ll find your secret pleasure.  I’ll bring those wicked dreams to life.  And when you’re begging for me, your body aching with desire, so close to the edge you can’t speak, or think, or even breathe because you need my ……..”      I have to  stop those sexy words there….you’ll find out the rest when you read this and oh, you so must!!!  Not sure who said these sexy words yet, I have my suspicions, but this is a taste of Roxy’s words!!  She knows her erotica!!  Just brilliant!!
Justine and Ashton meet in college and are so alike.  In college there are a lot of hook ups and forgotten relationships.  They did not want this so they decided to be friends with no benefits.  So after spending years together of early morning breakfasts and late night study sessions and getting to know  one another better then they know themselves, what are they to do?  How do they spend their last day together before they go off to start their futures?
My excitement is jumping up and down right now writing this review! I just love sharing my thoughts on books that made my erogenous zones set off the fire alarms!!  With all the ” please I just have to go back to college!” and “where was Ashton when I went to college?!” rants there were parts that made me giggle too!  I loved these characters, as short as this story is I got a feeling of who they are and I made a connection. I felt a lot of emotions in a very short time, this left me in a happy bliss of OMG I need the next one right now!!  As you can read, I am very excited for the next book after this one called The Surrender.  Roxy, you just earned a new die hard fan!!  You earned FIVE explosive stars from me!!!!

Check Out TELL ME YOU LOVE ME by Julie Prestater

Stay. Stay with me. Stay here. Stay close. Stay like this forever. Stay as happy as I am right here in your arms, always.
*          *          *
All I’ve ever wanted was to be loved, but if this is what true love is…I’m not so sure I want it anymore. It also makes me wonder if any of my memories of our once happy marriage are even real. Maybe I just conjured up the fairy tale in my head because I wanted…no…needed it so much. Who the hell knows?
“Molly just called to remind you about your book club meeting this afternoon.” He turns away. “I told her you’ve never missed a meeting and I doubt today would be any different.”
The door shuts behind him before I let a smile creep across my lips. Instantly, the hurt from this morning flees my mind and I feel nothing but giddiness. I have a book club meeting today, and let’s just say it’s not your everyday book club.
Sure, my husband may never truly love me again…but who needs love when you’re about to get an eyeful of hot firemen?
*          *          *
Tell Me You Love Me is the first in a four-book series called Fire Me Up—a sweet romantic comedy series about a group of sassy neighborhood women who have a serious love for steamy romance novels and sexy firemen. Lucky for them the local firehouse is just a few steps away and is in no shortage of hot firefighters to fill their wild imaginations.

Max and Chloe are at it Again and it’s Hott! Our reviews for Indiscretion 3 by Elisabeth Grace.



A summer of f*ck buddies? Something to take the edge off? I was down.

But when Chloe shows up at my hotel door, wanting to rip my head off, rather than give me head—I cared. A lot. Too much, in fact.

This is turning into more. And I can’t do more.

Like the ink under my skin she’s becoming permanent. Enduring. Immovable.

Was I ready to let her go though?

Not a f*cking chance


  Kristine’s 5 star Review

How is it Elisabeth darling, that you leave me each and every time with the black hole (mouth wide open)* growling* “feed me more Seymour!”  I love leaving with this expression and for the third time!  I just want to  be put out of my misery!!  Just kidding!  This is the feeling that I live for after reading a book….what can I tell you, I love torturing myself!!  I just love these serials!!!  I  kept saying this over and over while reading each word. Elisabeth is brilliant!  What a hot, interesting, angsty, 5 star all in one, devouring it in one sitting, leaving you yearning for more….what’s better than that?!!  Absolutely nothing!!  So I asked myself this question…If someone told me I couldn’t have a certain creamy donut….would I listen?!  Maybe if I told that donut I couldn’t eat it and stuffed it in the garbage and the garbage man picked it up….I would!  But if that donut appeared in front of my face again, would I have the will power to say no?!!!  I highly doubt it!   Max is Chloe’s desirable creamy, melt in your mouth donut… ( I’m probably hungry, for making this food reference, but whatever…point is, no one can stay away from something they want so bad, someone that has a hold on them like no one’s business. I don’t even think she has a clue and neither does he.  How two people can be in such denial is beyond me. 
In the second serial we are left wondering what Chloe read from the paper that left her so angry and determined to end it with Max and on top of other reasons that she had to.  What did Max do?! (Hence the crazy, I need it now feeling.) Sooo….going into this third installment I wanted to know a few things. Will Chloe be able to move pass this, and if she does, will she be able to do what she has to do?  We get to know these characters more and more with each and every installment.  By  the end we wonder….. do we really know them and WTF is going on!!!!  Ohhhh we are almost there for the fourth and I think the last installment.  Which I will be very sad to say goodbye, I really love these characters and hope they find their way to love and happiness. With saying that….  Hold on tight,  I think we are in for a bumpy ride!!! 

Dawn C’s Review 4.5 stars

Volume 3 is sexier, funnier, more romantic and definitely more suspenseful. Max & Chloe are back and they are hotter than ever!!  Their chemistry is insanely hot like a three alarm fire! I love this couple. Everything about them. They may come from different worlds but they treat each other like are equals. They compliment each other in every way.  Mentally and physically.
Still doing the causal thing or are they??? They keep telling themselves this is just for the here and now… But subconsciously, I don’t think they are not listening. They seem to be get closer despite what they say. Max is trying to keep his cool, but is failing miserably. Chloe knows that he’s getting under her skin, but is fighting it all their way.
Of course, there are hurdles and obstacles in their way. Forces trying to keep them apart. But what fun would it be, if their relationship was just easy and just fell into place?? I love their angst. As we get deeper into their story, there are clues and hints of their past lives but still many unanswered questions. These books give you just a taste. A nice slow simmer…that flows perfectly. Once again at the end, you will be left begging for more….. very mean Elisabeth, we need more now!

Check out WHAT IF by Rebecca Donovan and find out THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY

What if

The Story Behind The Story

what if purp


A new novel by REBECCA DONOVAN the USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Breathing Series

What if you had a second chance to meet someone for the first time?

Cal Logan is shocked to see Nicole Bentley sitting across from him at a coffee shop thousands of miles from their hometown. After all, no one has seen or heard from her since they graduated more than a year ago.

Except this girl isn’t Nicole.

She looks exactly like Cal’s shy childhood crush, but her name is Nyelle Preston and she has no idea who he is. This girl is impulsive and daring, her passion for life infectious. The complete opposite of Nicole. Cal finds himself utterly fascinated –and falling hard. But Nyelle is also extremely secretive. And the closer he comes to finding out what she’s hiding, the less he wants to know.

When the secrets from the past and present collide, one thing becomes clear: Nothing is what it seems.

Abby and Dawns joint review: Abby: Wow Dawn, just wow! Cal - he is so the boy next door right? Everything sweet and lovable from the types of male characters we’ve grown to love from Donovan. What did you think of him?

Dawn: Truly, I adored Cal! He’s vulnerable, lovable, and I connected with him so much. I felt all the emotions he experienced throughout What If…and Rebecca Donovan captured his personality and all of his feelings in the way she is so good at doing!

Abby: And the twists Donovan spun…. I was a little teary eyed and a tad surprised more than once, how about you?

Dawn: I really had NO idea what to expect when I picked up What If and that is exactly how you need to go into this one… there’s so much that happens that keeps you guessing and wondering what’s going to happen next. It would be so easy to give away too much, and that would be a shame for those who haven’t read it yet, so let’s keep it as much of a mystery as possible, shall we? ;)

Abby: And the writing style, I kinda do want to go back through it now that I’m finished and look at it with a fresh set of eyes.

Dawn: Absolutely! Rebecca Donovan weaves a tale that pulls you in and questioning so much. I definitely felt the same way when I finished… like I wanted to go back with a new set of eyes, like you, and view it all knowing What If… and experiencing it on a different level. Rebecca Donovan surprised me with this one, and I felt took me down a path that I was not expecting. My emotions and thoughts often felt all over the place, and I believe that’s what was intended. What do you think?

Abby: I think you are absolutely right! This was deliberate. In fact once you are finished you start to notice how deliberate everything is.

Dawn: There’s such a strong message in this story, all summed up in What If. I could go deeper into more of the story, but it would be a disservice to do that and not allow the next person reading it for the first time to experience all of that!

Abby: Dawn I agree wholeheartedly! This is one that should be kept quiet and let the reader experience. Get a secret group after and don’t share what happens, that’s my suggestion because part of the fabulous is not knowing What If. Happy reading. Add to your Goodreads Preorder  

About this author

Rebecca Donovan 2Optimism seeps from every pore of my body. I truly believe that what’s supposed to happen… will! In that regard, I don’t know how to give up; it’s not part of my biological make up. I’m a passionate (and some would say, overly enthusiastic) person. I learn by doing (and have been burned more times that I’d like to admit), but I will always throw my entire self into whatever I do – fail or succeed. I think this is evident when I write, leaving nothing behind and spilling it all out on the pages. I give it all to my readers – love it or hate it. The path I’m on is very often my own, veering off the beaten path at the sight of something more interesting or captivating, getting caught in the vines and thorns in order to experience the beauty and intrigue others often pass by. And I always meet the most interesting people along the way. a Rafflecopter giveaway

Unspeakable Truths TEASER By ALICE TRIBUNE


Title: Unspeakable Truths
Author: Alice Tribue
 Publication Date: September 16, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Everything I ever learned about fairy-tales was a fucking lie…
Four years ago, my life was everything I wanted it to be: I had everything I wanted, everything I needed, in my best friend and newly wedded husband—Tyler.
Yet, hours after we said “I do,” I lost him.
The dreams we’d shared, the future we’d planned—all of our hopes and desires, were ripped away in mere seconds. 
And now, four years later, my life still feels like a hopeless eternity.
So, I guess it’s quite fitting that the last person I want to hear from is currently standing at my front door. 
He wants to tell me the truth about that night, he wants to be my new knight in shining armor, but the thing is…
He was the best man


Excerpt button

“Bullshit,” he says again, grabbing hold of my arms. “You love me.”


His grasp on me tightens as he shakes me. “Tell me you don’t.”


“Tell me you don’t love me Everly.”

“I don’t love you.”

“You’re full of shit.” He releases his hold on me, taking a step back.
