start. He wasn’t looking for trouble. But trouble tasted so damn good.
are reasons for the rules…
Malia Adams had a complicated life. Well, actually it was pretty simple. Survive. Stay off the streets by any
means necessary. And that was a nightly struggle. She didn’t have time to get
involved with anyone.
Especially not the one person she can’t have.
All he needs to do is stay away. All she needs to do is forget him. Too
bad that was all easier said than done.

I really enjoyed this book, it was the first book I have read by this author and what better way to start than with a forbidden romance. The story was great, flowed and kept me engaged.

The relationship between the characters was a slow build but it ended up being great. I loved Zephyr and Malia and although they both have huge issues and both need more than a little help. They are good together. I was drawn into this book and didn’t want to put it down.

I recommend this book and I feel that although everyone will have different views. We will gain something from reading this book.

Robyn’s Review of Lost for You by Jayne Frost

by Jayne Frost
Genres: New Adult



Title: Lost for You
Series: Sixth Street Bands #4
Author: Jayne Frost
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: January 12, 2018
At eighteen, I stood
at the precipice of stardom. I had the record deal. And the tour to back it up.
But I succumbed to the pressure of that life. The dark side.
Now, I skate on the fringe. My brother is the genius guitarist for the band
Caged, and I’m the one who helped make that happen. I’m happy to run my bars
and my land development company.

Sure I am.

And then I meet her—Taryn Ayers—the music manager behind the three biggest
bands in the country. She doesn’t know I’m Cam’s older brother. Or that I’ve
got a secret that makes her world and mine fundamentally incompatible.
Problem is, I want to know Taryn.

But do I want her to know me?

Lost For You is a STAND ALONE New Adult Romance.

A new author is always exciting and this author definitely grabbed my attention from the beginning!

Taryn Ayers is a famous music manager who has dealt with severe trauma in the past.
Chase Noble had a past too, not one he is proud of either, he is still in the music business but only to help his brother. When Taryn and Chase meet they feel an attraction but both aren’t prepared for a long-term relationship.

Throw in some addiction issues where Chase tries to help and some major league misunderstandings and you have a tipsy turvy drama as well as a hot romance.

I found the characters all likeable even though at times I wanted to smack some of them to wake them up, probably a sign of being invested in the story! Told from both Taryn and Chase’s points of view we get an insight into their thoughts and reasons for their actions.

There are some extremely emotional parts to this story that superbly written, it is a fast-paced story with plenty of everything for everyone! I now need to read the first books in the series seeing as this is so good!

There’s only one place that has the power to heal Hunter Yates. Sweetwater Ranch. His sophomore year of college was nothing less than a wild adventure.

He found everything and lost it all in a blink of an eye. With Dave in decent shape for the moment, Hunter travels home for the summer. It’s just what he needs. Time to clear his mind.

He should feel settled, fulfilled, and at peace now that he’s home on the Ranch. But he doesn’t. The dull ache in his chest too overwhelming to ignore. The natural high he always experiences while on horseback no longer exists. The grass no longer green in his eyes. The world is just that-the world.

His drive and determination have vanished. Teale Wickett destroyed him.

The thing is life goes on one meaningless day at a time. Timing has never been on his side and this time there will be no turning back this time. Dave’s health declines, leaving Hunter lost.

Will his country roots be enough to keep him grounded?

Title: Everything in Between
Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Contemporary/New Adult/Rocker Romance
Release Date: January 13, 2017
Gabe Preston.
The man who wrecked me; who tore through my life leaving no stone unturned and then simply walked away.It took me two years to piece my life back together in the aftermath of his storm. Two years and still even the mention of his name causes my chest to constrict.

I hate him. I hate everything about him. I hate how he thinks that he can walk back into my life after all this time and I’m just going to melt at his feet. If he thinks his newly found ROCKSTAR status holds any power over me at all, he couldn’t be more wrong. If anything, it makes me hate him more.

Only I don’t hate him. Not even a little. One smile and the last two years all but vanish.

But I know what loving a man like Gabe Preston will do to a girl. I’ve lived it firsthand. I won’t make the same mistake twice. Not knowing what I know.He may be used to having all the power, but I’m the one with the secret that will change everything.

I really really enjoyed this fast flowing, beautifully written story. Of missed chances and having to grow up and become what is needed of you. This is a typical Rockstar book but it just flowed from the pages again and I found that it was over before I knew it and I was left fulfilled and happy.

The story of Gabe and Rae is a little different as it is  a second chance romance and a book where proof is needed for forgiveness and a love that never died at all. I so love this group of men and their chemistry together as a band but also with the women in their lives. I just hope I get to read more from them. As Aiden I feel will be the dark horse amongst this great band of men.

I love this book, style of writing and this author can rock a story and keep you gripped with her words. A huge recommend from me.

This books is really great and what I like in a really quick read, which shows the standard of the writing to make it seem like the book was over in minutes. The story was similar to others I have read before but seemed to have alot more depth and feels to it.

Killan and Nora were absolutely great together and the chemistry that they tried to fight was completely undeniable and just flowed from the pages. I love that it wasn’t all million pounds and posh hotels. It was real and raw and I loved all the other characters that featured in this book. Please let there be more from them all.

A great read for me and a huge recommendation. Melissa Toppen is a new author for me but one I will read again that’s almost certain.

In the beginning, Lonely and Defensive complete each other. But in the end, their relationship is like broken glass—cutthroat and jagged.

Calling it off before they kill each other, Ella and Teller decide to “just be friends” despite the intensity that binds them together. It’s a delicate foundation rocked by tragedy, effectively destroying the illusion they’ve so carefully built.

Unable to deny what’s between them any longer, this is what happens when wrecked and damaged collide and close is still not close enough.

I loved this mesmerising story that had me hooked from the beginning to the end. This is the story of Teller and Ella, God are they explosive together and seem to fire each other up and also completely destroy each other.

I was so engrossed in this crazy and all consuming story that I was gutted when it ended on a cliff hanger, which has never yelling blue murder.

Roll on the next book, I hope I don’t have to wait to long for it. This book is awesome and of you love a hard hitting romance with a cliffhanger then this book is so for you.

Abby nodded, and Lance moved in to kiss her again. His tongue swept past her lips, sliding against hers, teasing and tasting. His hands, like earlier, roamed down her back and gripped her ass once again. He pulled her tightly against him, grinding their hips together.

Her hands were trapped between them. She ran them over his chest, feeling the planes of his muscles, gripping the fabric of his t-shirt to pull herself closer.

One of Lance’s hands traveled up to her back, sliding under the hem of her tank top, teasing the skin just under the waistband of her shorts. His fingers slid lower, sliding along the top of her ass, while his other hand kneaded her flesh through her clothes.

With a small sound of frustration in the back of his throat, Lance broke off the kiss. He led her the few steps to his bed, sitting down on the edge and positioning her between his legs.

Abby wasn’t sure what he was doing.She stopped caring when he raised her shirt and began kissing her stomach, his tongue teasing along the edge of her belly button.Her hands went to his head, threading her fingers through his hair, enjoying the feeling of his mouth against her skin.She felt his hands slide up the backs of her thighs.He gripped her ass briefly before sliding around to the front.He made short work of unbuttoning and unzipping her shorts, pulling back so he could look at her face and watch her reaction.

He didn’t immediately push her shorts off her hips like Abby had expected. He left them hanging there, running his hands back around, caressing her waist and hips before finally sliding his hands under the fabric.

He groaned when he encountered bare skin. “Abby, are you wearing underwear?”

She licked her lips and nodded. “A thong.” Her husky whisper matched his.

“Can I see?”

Publication Date: November 10, 2016
Genres: Adult, New Adult, Contemporary, Erotic, Romance



Amazon (99c or #FREE with #KindleUnlimited):

Synopsis: Levi Black is an s.o.b.Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he’s a pretentious, obnoxious, womanizing jacka** who thinks the world revolves around him.

He wouldn’t be wrong.

A famous soccer player, his skills on and off the field have won him medals, trophies, women, and the cover of every heartthrob magazine in the country. He’s broken nearly every bone in his body and a few hearts along the way, including mine—his stepsister—and lived to tell about it.

One night changed everything, and I’ve avoided him like the plague ever since. Just long enough to finish college, to bury the hurt, and to outrun the memories. But now that’s all changed. I’m back, and there’s no more running.

My hands are supposed to be my livelihood, but now they’re my curse. Levi’s reckless ways have landed him in a sticky situation, and his father has given me an offer I can’t refuse. One month, and all I have to do is put my hands on his body. Easier said than done. The problem is, even though I know it’s bound to bite me in the a**, I can’t bring myself to say no to the s.o.b.






OMG!!! I have owned this book for ages and never had a chance to read it. It was always I get to that later. It took for me to be asked to review it. That I finally get round to it. Well what an idiot I am, I Loved ever single word of this book and I could kick myself.

The story is Taboo to some but I love a good old step brother romance and see nothing wrong in them at all. This book was also a sports romance but also so much more.

I fell completely in love with Levi, the way he wound up Vista was so funny but Vista gave just as good as she got. I couldn’t help but chuckle at their bantering and chemistry. It made the book really funny and emotionally fueled. This book made me cry alot but I think it needed to take the journey that it did.

I will most definitely be reading more from JC Valentine and will be recommending this book to everyone. It’s a must read for me. A great story that is so hard not to love.

Reviewed by Donna


“This is where we’re going to do it?” Vista’s eyes are wide, darting everywhere as she tries to soak it all in at once.

“As many times as you want,” I tell her, smirking when she levels me with one of her disapproving frowns that make her forehead wrinkle adorably.

“I’m not even going to dignify that with a response.”

With her chin held high, she takes the lead. There are chairs set up around the entire perimeter of the pool for the residents, and Vista chooses one, dropping her towel at the foot and, no lie, when she strips off the sundress, I think I have a stroke.

She has the most beautiful body I have ever seen on a woman. Fit, firm, curvy in all the right places. I love her ass most of all. At the pond, I had my fingers buried in those cheeks so hard she probably had bruises for days after, and I’ve been anticipating when I can do it again. Despite her determination to keep me at arm’s length, I can’t get her off my mind.  

Approaching the edge of the pool, she dips her toes into it to test the temperature. “I’m assuming you know how to swim?” she asks sarcastically over her shoulder.

“Like a fish.” Dropping my towel at the foot of the chair next to hers, I stand facing her with my arms folded over my chest.

“I think we’ll start with a couple laps to get your blood pumping.”

Candlemoth Book 3

A Holy City Romance

‘A Twist of Fate’ by Pauline West

Genre: Steamy New Adult, Romance


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00018]


As Lily and Ry are reunited, the lovers are caught in a tragedy that changes their lives forever. Boldly sensual and deeply inspiring, this installment in the Candlemoth series will have you on the edge of your seat all the way to its soaring finish.






His mouth slack with desire, red with kissing. Ry bent to my neck, his hand fucking me expertly, relentlessly.

“Oh, oh, you’re so fucking hot I can’t even-”

“What’s that?” Ry said, his voice a raspy purr.

“I, oh-”

“What’s that, Lily?”

His steady, deep, hunting rhythm. He had me right on the edge. His touch strayed back along my cleft to rest alongside the tight bud of flesh at my back.

I tried to squirm away but had nowhere to go. “Hey, you’ve got me between a rock and a hard place, here,” I said, laughing nervously.

Ry slowed, still exploring. He circled pressingly, his free hand wrapped around the side of my hip, pinning me where he wanted. I loved how big his hands were, but the very bigness of Ry meant he could pin me like a butterfly. Worst of all, it felt wonderful. Even as shame began to lick at me hotly.

I felt ragingly shy. “I can’t…”

Ry wouldn’t let me go.

My eyes sparked on his. “Please, I can’t-”

Just when I thought I couldn’t bear his strokes any longer, Ry moved sideways, massaging the inner muscles of the back of my ass.

The thumb of Ry’s hand at my waist still stroked me soothingly. I wrapped my arms around him, trying to let myself go, to float in him. But whenever I thought about what he was doing, what he was trying to do and where he was doing it, I’d get so embarrassed I’d squirm away from him again. The sunlight throbbed.

“Oh, I don’t know, I don’t know, I just don’t want to-”

“I love your crazy talk when you go out of your mind.” Ry kissed my cheek hard, and then found my mouth, working me open. Soon I was panting into him again, my hips lifting for his. Pleasure strobed as we drank, sucking, our tongues shamelessly wet.

“You trust me, baby?” Ry said.


His touch tipped inside me, pulsing. I felt myself open; flowers gasped candent in the sun.

“I could watch your face forever,” he said.

“I’d die, you feel so good, you feel too good-”

“Ssh, ssh, relax, just let it. Just let me know you.” The sound of Ry’s voice curled through me as his touch slid, a metronome of desire.

Quickening in me.

This overwhelming fullness.

Ry covered me with kisses. “You’re so, so soft. I love touching you all over.” He grinned. “Staking my claim.” He moved back, lingeringly, to stand above me, his frame commanding even as he was dwarfed amongst the hugeness of rock and forest, the mountains in the distance. He began unbuckling his jeans for me, teasingly slow.








A bold and independent free spirit from the foster system of small town South Carolina, Lily is a survivor with skeletons in her closet. She knows what she wants and how to get it. And a spoiled rich playboy is not part of her plan- but Ry is irresistible.

Steamy, exciting and beautifully written, this dramatic romance will appeal to fans of Sylvia Day.

Book One in the Holy City Romance series about a wild and fun-loving group of twenty-somethings in Charleston, South Carolina.

“What a great read! Filled with powerful writing…an enchanting, romantic, steamy-hot story with amazing characters who find it in themselves to risk it all for love! I very much enjoyed this book!”
~ Craves the Angst Reviews

“This book is perfection!
~ Coyote Ugly Swagger Book Blog

“I tend to avoid books that are set in Hawaii like the plague, it’s a little quirk of mine and has to do with the fact that I am a born and raised Hawaii girl and am a little picky with how my islands are portrayed…as I kept turning the pages my wariness faded away and I before I knew it I felt like I was home. The sights, smells, tastes and sounds were right there in front of me…”
~ Books-n-Wine




I really enjoyed this modern day twist on the Romeo and Juliet story. In saying that the beginning did drag a little for me but the second half of the book saved it.

The characters were great and captivating although I didn’t Gel with Leilani as much as I did with mason. This story is about breaking all the rules and not doing what is expected of you and going against the grain.

The one question remains will it all be worth it in the end. Go read it and make your own decision.

Racial Tensions Flare as Hot as the Passion in RULE BREAKER,
a Modern-day Romeo and Juliet Story

Leilani Kealoha wants to be set free. Of family expectations. Of generations of prejudice.

Chafing at rules made by the proud Hawaiian men in her family, she yearns to discover herself and hungers to explore the world. Her adventuresome heart? Longs for something even greater, deeper.

The last thing she expects is an East Coast haole surfer to hold the key to everything.

Mason Price is done walking his parents’ path. Done with social acceptance—with cold politics.

On a surfing quest to reinvent himself, Mase finds an exotic beauty standing on his towel. But it’s her feisty bargaining that catches him off guard. When he challenges her with a “Truth or Shots” drinking game, she unwittingly reveals more than she’d intended about herself…and him.

The raw truth stuns him: She’s suffered like he has, is lost like he is—keeps secrets like he does.

But will young love and shared situations be enough to conquer racial and cultural divides?

Lines in the sand…were meant to be crossed.
