Synopsis2

For the Grayson family the holidays have always been a time of togetherness.

Eat, drink, and be merry is their motto, but not this year . . .

With Marcus and Riley knee deep in their flourishing careers, their spouses, Tessa and Beck, have been decking the halls and dashing through the snow without support from the busy Grayson duo. A new baby is on the way for one of these ladies and she hasn’t even had the chance to tell the daddy; plans for a huge holiday feast are up in the air because priorities are out of whack; unexpected visitors and a bomb of a surprise from Mr. Grayson—it’s safe to say this holiday will be far from jolly.

Tempers are high, feelings are bruised, and it’s not something spiked eggnog can cure. Will Marcus and Riley make it home for the holidays or will Tessa and Beck be forced to ring in the New Year alone? Continue reading

Synopsis2

I never knew how perfect life could be until Blake Caster was finally mine.

Chasing storms with her only doubles the passion and the rush, but as we travel down tornado alley at the start of the season, we run into more than our fair share of nonweather-related trouble.

My past on the alley catches up to me in a bad way and with each captured storm, a wedge is driven between us. The harder I try to hold on to Blake, the faster she is slipping away.

Add to that an unexpected call from her ex, new pressures from the reality show filming our every move, and a job offer Blake may not be able to pass up, and my perfect life is on the same chaotic path as the storms we chase.

All I want to do is make her mine—forever—but one trip down tornado alley might be our last.

Size Matters (A Perfect Fit #1)

By: Alison Bliss

 

Synopsis2

The rules of (fake) engagement . . .
Leah Martin has spent her life trying to avoid temptation. But she’s sick of low-fat snacks, counting calories, and her hyper-critical mom. Fortunately, her popular new bakery keeps her good and distracted. But there aren’t enough éclairs in the world to distract Leah from the hotness that is Sam Cooper – or the fact that he just told her mother that they’re engaged . . . which is a big, fat lie.

Sam sometime speaks before he thinks. So what started out as defending Leah’s date-ability to her judgmental mother soon turned into having a fiancee! Now the plan is to keep up the fake engagement, stay “just friends,” and make Leah’s family loathe him enough to just call the whole thing off . But Sam has an insatiable sweet tooth, not only for Leah’s decadent desserts but her decadent curves. Her full lips. Her bright green eyes. Yep, things aren’t going quite according to plan. Now Sam has to convince Leah that he’s for real . . . before their little lie turns into one big, sweet disaster.

My Review

*****5 Phenomenal Stars*****

Alison Bliss continues to be one of my favorite authors for so many reasons. Her books never fail to make me laugh out loud with their vibrant and sass filled humor, her characters never fail to sear themselves to my heart through every single second of charm and wonderfulness I get with them, and her enrapturing stories never fail to allow me to feel and experience it all as her thoughtfully crafted stories unfold. Her stories are ones that you feel and experience every word of, and all of her books are some of my most favorite reads ever.

The way that Alison Bliss blends her smart dialogue, her banter filled and fiery characters, and the best and most distinctive charm that envelops you in with all that it has creates a book that literally gives you it all, and I truly can’t say that enough.

Going into Size Matters I knew that I would be getting a story that was exceptionally written, and I knew that it would be sure to make me laugh and blush and feel it all as I experienced what this book had to offer. And you know what? I got just that, and so much more while reading Size Matters. I got a story that made me feel it all. I got a story that had me melting and falling right along with these two. I got a story that was so darn good to read, and then some, and that was just part of what made this such a fulfilling and enjoyable read.

Size Matters was a story that was easy to connect and relate to through every word, while simultaneously being the perfect escape that I needed, and I truly can’t recommend it enough!

What I loved about Size Matters:

  • Leah and her sassy and relatable self. Leah was such a relatable, smart, and strong female character to get to know and love in this story. What I think I loved the most about Leah was that she never failed to bring that sass and fire, while also having those real, honest, and vulnerable moments too. Alison Bliss completely created Leah’s character in a way that made her easy to love and connect to, while also giving her the same thoughts, feelings, and reactions that most women feel. The way that she balanced that strength and vulnerability had me loving Leah’s character to pieces, all while loving being with her every step of the way as she found more of that strength and realized what she wanted. Leah is a gem of a character who will make you laugh and smile and just feel so much, and that is truly just a fraction of what I loved about her in this book.
  • Sam’s trying to figure it all out. Sam was such a phenomenal male character to get to know and love in this book. He was such a good guy trying to figure out how to make a unique situation work, and I loved every second of this book with him as he tried to fix it all, while also trying to figure out what he was feeling for Leah. What I loved about Sam’s character was that even though he had those moments where he was a bit of a butt, and he was definitely still trying to figure it all out, he was still a good guy through and through. He also made me laugh and blush through so much of this book, and that had me rooting like crazy for this man through everything and every feeling that came his way in this story. Sam is real, so sweet, and a man that will steal your heart in no time flat, and I dare you to try to resist what that man brings to the table. His missteps along the way as he tries to wade through the world of feelings and connection he’s starting to feel will just make you love him more. Trust me on that.
  • A sweet and fiery connection. The connection that Sam and Leah share is one fire from the very first second those two meet each other in this book. That instant connection between them is fierce, firing through every page, and it continues to grow and grow the more these two are together. It’s that same fire that soon finds these two in a predicament neither of them expected to be in, but the closer those two get, and the more they get to know one another, the more they realize they might be feeling a whole helluva lot for one another. What I loved about their connection was how I got to be there through every part of it. I got to see that first spark, I got to experience that flame growing, and I also got to be there when the fireworks between Sam and Leah exploded in the most mesmerizing way. That coupled with how sweet and blushworthy what these two share is will have you falling for them in no time flat.
  • Build, build, and more glorious build. One of the best parts of this book was getting to experience the glorious build that happens between Sam and Leah. There is such an all-feeling build and tension to what those two share, and the way that Alison Bliss thoughtfully crafted that and brought it to life on the pages of this book made my heart race again and again. What I loved about that build was that it pulled me in so much to what I was reading, it invested me in what those two were fighting so hard against, and it simultaneously had me knowing that what these two could share was so beyond worth it. That build was equally consuming and exciting, and the way that Alison Bliss creates it and brings it to life will have you beyond in this story, feeling it all with Leah and Sam.
  • That oh so wonderful charm. It wouldn’t be an Alison Bliss book without some serious charm, and Size Matters was no different. Whether it was Sam and Leah, or the fabulous supporting characters, every single character I got to know in this book found a way to charm their way into my heart. Whether it was their personality or their banter or everything in between, I loved getting to experience that charm and vibrancy. That made reading this book so enjoyable and so fun, and it made all of these characters feel even more real because of that distinctive charm they all had. I loved getting that in this book so much, and I for one can’t wait for more of it as this series continues!
  • Authenticity for the win! I have to say one of my favorite aspects of this book was how real and relatable all of these characters were. All of their thoughts, reactions, and feelings were easy to understand and relate to with how great of an understanding Alison Bliss gives you of their characters. I also found their struggles and questions and doubts to be wholly honest and endearing in the same moment because I think at one point, all of us have felt the exact same thing. That authenticity, and how it burst from every page, made this story even more real, even more fantastic to experience because of how it felt getting all of that with these characters, all while making it even more of an incredible read. All of that made me love what I was reading even more, and every page just strengthened that love fiercely.

Size Matters was a phenomenally written, wholly enjoyable read that made me fall oh so hopelessly in love with every single thing that Sam and Leah were sharing. I found this story to be so real and authentic, so easy to love and fall right into, and so utterly fantastic from start to finish. This book made me laugh, smile, blush, and feel it all along the way with these two as they tried to sort out their unique predicament and the world of feelings they were sharing. From the very first page of this book I was hooked, and I truly can’t say enough how much I loved this book.

This was such an incredible start to this series, and I for one can’t wait for more! This book proved over and over again how phenomenal of a writer Alison Bliss is, and how much I LOVE her stories. She literally never disappoints, and the way that she so outstandingly crafts this story will have you loving every single moment you get within its pages.

This book was one that I loved every single word of, and I am telling y’all you will love it. From its charm, to its incredible characters, to its banter and sparks, to everything in between that pulls you in even more, you will be hooked. Size Matters is a story that is so easy to fall right into, so easy to love, and so darn phenomenal. Trust me on that one!

Just a little tease….

Three Years of Blogging and All I Really Want to Say is Thank You.

Y’all guess what.

Come in real close so I can tell you because it’s a secret….

Well really it’s not so much of a secret because the title of this blog post kind of reveals what I’m about to tell you, but we’ll just disregard that for right now. Okay? Okay.

So come in real close y’all because I have something to tell you…something big…something fantastic…something worth celebrating….

The Never Ending Book Basket is officially 3 years old!!!

*insert confetti toss and simultaneous twirling here*

confetti

Can we all just take in the fact that I have somehow managed to keep this blog alive for over one thousand days?!?!?!

This is coming from a girl who somehow managed to kill a plant that’s not even supposed to need water. (Though in all actuality I think all plants need some kind of water, so that might’ve been where I went wrong with that one, but I digress…) You heard that right, I killed a cactus. A mother effing cactus that barely needs any maintenance, and yet I still managed to kill it, so the fact that I have kept this blog going for 3 years now is something I’m pretty damn proud of.

You heard that right, this book blog turned 3!!

So I guess this is really like a thing now. Like this whole book blogging thing is really going to stick. Like for reals y’all, and I for one can’t say enough how happy that makes me because I truly don’t know where I’d be without this blog and what its brought to my life.

What it looks like when I try to reorganize my TBR pile...

What it looks like when I try to reorganize my TBR pile…

Now once again I must admit that this blogiversary post is a bit delayed for the second year in a row since The Never Ending Book Basket’s actual blogiversary is November 7th. Last year I spent my blogiversary at the Indies Invade Philly book signing with two of my best friends, which was ahhhmazing in so many ways. This year I got to spend my blogiversary adulting at the car repair shop and writing a paper for my grad class, which was so not as much fun as Indies Invade Philly.

But if I’m being 100% honest, I’m actually kind of glad I was delayed in writing this post because its sentiment fits the time of year just right. You see the biggest thing I feel right now, as I write this third blogiversary post, is thankful.

I am so damn thankful.

I’m thankful for the unforgettable experiences and people and books this blog has brought to my life.

I’m thankful for my friends and family accepting and supporting my little blog in any way that they can, and for their understanding that my book obsession is literally never going away.

I’m thankful for what creating, running, and writing this blog has shown me about myself, my passions, and my dreams.

I’m thankful for the authentic and cherished relationships this blog has allowed me to create with other bloggers, fellow readers, and some of my all-time favorite authors, who are all literally some of the best people on the planet.

I’m oh so thankful that when my little blogging world was turned upside down this year, I found I had the best kind of support system a girl could ask for.

Like I said, I am thankful for it all. So. Damn. Thankful. 

When I started this blog I had no idea how it would literally change my life in so many amazing ways. I had no idea how it would bring some of the most phenomenal books into my life that I will literally never forget or stop feeling. I had no idea that it would allow me to cultivate the most amazing friendships with people all over this great big world. I had no idea that it would allow me to help and support authors in ways that I didn’t even know were possible. I had no idea that it would fulfill me as much as it has, but fulfill me it does.

What started as just a little idea, bloomed into something I never could have expected, and I am grateful every day that I have this blog and this amazingly wonderful community to be a part of.

Through all of life’s craziness, this blog, this community, and all the book love have grounded me. They have helped keep me sane-ish *heavy on that ish*, and have shown me that this community of readers, authors, and bloggers is where I want to be as long as humanly possible.

Don’t get me wrong, this blog and everything that goes along with it is work, but it’s the best kind of work a girl could ask for, and I wouldn’t trade a single second of it all. This little book blog of mine makes my heart happy on a daily basis, and I truly don’t know where I’d be without it.

So THANK YOU! giphy2

Thank you for supporting me and my crazy book loving self, thank you for supporting this blog in every way that y’all do, and thank you for letting me spread the book love in every way that I can.

You’ll never know how much it means to me. If I could give you all bookstore gift cards, hugs, and copious amounts of coffee as a thank you, I would because y’all are the best and you’ve made me the happiest book blogger on the planet with the support I’ve received.

So now while I can’t hug you all, or give you gift cards and coffee, I can give you my annual list of things I’ve learned in the last 3 years of book blogging, which is pretty much the same thing….right? Right.

(It’s sooooo not the same thing, but let’s just go with it!)

What I’ve learned in the last 1,095 days of book blogging:

  • Amazon, you hit like a bitch. If you’ve followed this blog then you know that this year I was banned from reviewing on Amazon, and had all of my hundreds of previous reviews removed. *insert middle finger to Amazon here* It’s funny that in my 2nd blogiversary post last year, I wrote about being worried that that very thing would happen, and just a mere 3 months later it did. And you know what, it fucking sucked. Like a lot. But you know what happened too? I realized that being banned from Amazon wasn’t the absolute worst thing in the world. I also realized that there was no way being banned from Amazon was going to stop me on my book loving, book blogging brigade. Sure it changed the way I go about blogging in some minor ways, and it still pisses me off that I literally can’t post a review for anything on that damn website, but it in no way stopped me from being the kind of book blogger I want to be. It also led to my most viewed blog post ever, with that oh so catchy title that I’m kinda really proud of, which to this day gets viewed almost daily. Sure getting banned from Amazon was so not in the plan, but the support I received from this book community when that happened, and have since received since being banned, is something I will truly never forget. Ever. So fuck you Amazon, and goodnight.

    I *might* have a book buying problem...

    I *might* have a book buying problem…and the floor beneath all those books *might* be collapsing soon…

  • I *might* have a book buying problem. So in my three years of blogging I have come to the conclusion that I *might* have a slight problem with buying books…and when I say slight, I mean that I’m actually worried the floor in my room in going to collapse because I have soooooo many books. What can I say?! Books are my jam, and I will not apologize for that, nor will I apparently stop buying books no matter how many unread ones I have at home. No matter where I seem to go, I always seem to find some books that need to find their way to my home, and as much as my mother might hate that, I think she just accepts that my book buying isn’t stopping anytime soon. So I guess as much as I tell myself I won’t buy any more books until I read more of my literal TBR pile, the lie detector test has officially determined that to be a lie….and I’m kind of really okay with that because what in the world could be wrong with buying more books??? (Fun fact: there is nothing wrong with buying more books.)
  • Hanging out with fellow readers, bloggers, and authors is the best. THE ABSOLUTE BEST. This year I got the amazing chance to travel to 7 book signings, in 4 different states, all while hanging out with the best people. (And also while adding to my actual never ending book basket of course!) I will literally never get enough of meeting my favorite authors, fellow readers, and other bloggers who all share the same book love. Getting the chance to talk and interact with them makes my little heart happy, and this year has given me some of the most unforgettable memories that I will cherish forever. Whether it was hanging out with my favorite people who I don’t see near enough, whether it was running into familiar faces at book signings while we all made our way through all the craziness and lines, or whether it was meeting new friends online and in person, this year burst my heart with all that it gave me. Meeting people who not only get and accept, but love your crazy never gets old. I will literally never get enough of meeting and connecting with people from this community whether it be in person, online, or anywhere in between, and I look forward to another year of doing just that!
  • I still use all the words, and I still LOVE using all the words. Words are my jam. They make me happy, and I love them something fierce, which is probably why I like to use all of them. All the damn time. Yep, I am still wordy as fuck, and I am really okay with that. Sure my book reviews are typically over 1500 words at minimum, and let’s not even get started on the trees being killed by the length of my beta notes, but in my book, using all the words is okay. (Lord help me when I actually get to writing that book I always say I’m going to write. That book will probably be longer than the phone book!) And let’s be honest, being wordy is kind of my schtick at this point. So I’m going to keep being wordy, and I hope y’all are okay with that because I don’t think I’ll ever stop being wordy because where’s the fun in that?!
  • Books are literal magic, and they can give you it all, if you let them. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, books can bring us together if we let them, and that is something pretty damn amazing. I truly believe books can give us the most unforgettable feelings, tumblr_mwy0p7ssz81rc5z1po1_500moments, and experiences within their pages, all we have to do is give them a chance to wow us with their magic. Books have literally changed my life. They have let me live so many different lives, with so many different characters in so many different worlds, and it honestly doesn’t get better than that. They have made me full on ugly cry, laugh to the point of my cheeks hurting, practically made me stop breathing at times, and they have pushed me and my heart to their very limit. Whether it’s a romance novel that has me melting and swooning, or the most thrilling mystery that has me dying to know what will happen next, or an honest memoir that amazes me with its authenticity and realness, or a magical world that lets me believe in magic and possibilities and what could be…books have given me it all, and then some, and for that I can’t say thank you to the book gods enough.

So there you have it folks. Three years of book blogging is officially in the books!

deo5r*wooooohooooo*

Here’s hoping that there are many more of these blogiversary posts to come in the future! I don’t know about you, but I can’t seem to get enough of this book world or the book love it contains, and I’m really looking forward to experiencing more of it in the days to come.

I know this post is ridiculously long, and I know I probably lost most of y’all when the bulleted list started, but to quote one of my favorite movies even though I keep fumbling for the right words, all I really wanted to say was thank you.”

That’s all I really wanted to do with this post. I wanted to say thank you. From the bottom of my heart. A million times over.

Thank you for supporting this blog and for supporting me. Thank you for accepting my book loving crazy ass, and for allowing me to be a part of a world that makes me happy and fills my heart on a daily basis. Thank you for every word of encouragement, every like, every comment, and every kind and thoughtful word you’ve given me.

Thank you to the authors for creating the unforgettable books and characters and worlds we all love and need to get lost in, and thank you for letting me read and review your books because it truly means the world to me.

Thank you to my fellow bloggers for being the best group of coworkers a girl could ask for, and even though I’ve never met most of y’all, I think we’d all agree that this is the best *job* to have.

Thank you to my fellow readers for all the fantastic book recommendations, for being you and getting as excited as I do over books, and for loving books as passionately as you do. There is truly nothing better than that, or you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I truly can’t say it enough.

Releasing Now: Words I Couldn’t Say by Tessa Teevan

Title: Words I Couldn’t Say
Series: Promise in Prose #1
Author: Tessa Teevan
Release Date: Nov 22, 2016
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Photo Credit: Sara Eirew Photography
You know the old adage “if you love something, set it free?”
It’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.
The dumbest thing I’ve ever done.
I loved her. I lost her. Hell, I let her go. And then spent five miserable years without her.
To cope with the loss, I put pen to paper and wrote her a love story, knowing when she was ready she’d hear the words I couldn’t say all those years ago.
Turned out, not only would she hear them, but when Hollywood came calling, I made sure she got the lead role. After all, no one else could portray the character whom she’d inspired.
Now she’s within arms’ reach and finally, she’ll know the truth in my heart.
Because that other cliché, “Actions speak louder than words?”
I’m going to prove it.
My words may have brought Ava Banks back into my life; I have to be enough to make her stay.
The air around us was silent save for the crickets chirping off in the distance. The cool Cincinnati breeze nipped at my skin while I waited for his reaction. When I’d started writing this novel, it had been an ode to my past love. My past life. But then it’d taken on a life of its own and become so much more. Which had made it that much more poignant. That much harder to fathom the one word that’d been haunting me for years.
Goodbye.
At long last, he turned to the final page and sucked in a breath. My stomach twisted in knots because he was about to read the end. And I didn’t know how he’d interpret it. Half scared he’d tell me that I’d lost my mind and no one would ever want to read this story, especially with that ending.
He didn’t make me wait long. As his head slowly rose, I was taken aback at the tears shining in his usually cheerful eyes. This man, who had always been like a second father to me, had been reduced to tears by my words. My words. Words we both knew for whom they were meant. And, instead of calling me a fool or attempting to kill me, he watched me with tearful appreciation, switching between nodding and shaking his head as if trying to process it all.
I didn’t know how to react, so I simply stared at him, waiting for him to say something. Anything.
He closed the manuscript and set it on the table in front of us before taking a long swig from his whiskey glass. I followed suit and enjoyed the smoky burn that did little to soothe my nerves.
“Jesus Christ,” he muttered, his eyes locking in on mine. “Tucker. You did it. You fucking did it,” he whispered, seemingly unashamed of his emotional display.
I nodded, the same emotion welling up inside me when I remembered the ending of my first novel. So many love stories begin with the girl who got away. Mine wasn’t any different. Not only in my novel, but in real life as well. Ava Banks was, and always would be, that girl for me. But, instead of slipping through my fingers, she’d made the conscious decision to leave. And, like most dumbass men, I’d let her. Hell, I’d pushed her away. I’d regretted it ever since.
But, now, I was hoping like hell I could get the second chance Trevor did. Hoping like hell my story would turn out differently than his. But, either way, I was putting myself out there, as terrifying as that was. She finally, finally would hear the words I couldn’t say all those years ago.
Now, I just had to wait to see what she’d do about it. 
Tessa Teevan is a twenty-something book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are who she spends her time rooting for. She’s a research analyst by day, reads/writes by night, and is married to a guy 15 inches taller than her, making them quite the pair! They currently reside just outside of Dayton, OH with two adorably grumpy cats. 
If she’s not writing or scouring through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find her curled up with her Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. She loves her sports almost as much as she loves her books. Her other obsessions include red wine, hot men, rock music, and all things Corey Taylor. 
She adores hearing from readers, so please feel free to contact via any social media site listed below. 
  

 

Review Post: Over the Edge (Bridge Series #3) by Meredith Wild

 Over The Edge by Meredith Wild 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

 ********Available 22nd November********

“An intriguing, sexy story about unexpected love and balancing others’ expectations against your heart”
NYT Bestselling Author Shayla Black
“The third book in Wild’s Bridge series is a fantastic read, certain to woo new readers and satiate her returning fans. Over the Edge checks off all the boxes: it’s emotional, intense and extremely sexy. Wild taps into an often thought of as taboo fantasy — one woman sharing two men — and makes it a possibility, allowing the reader to live vicariously through the main character. While this is part of the Bridge series, it’s also effective as a standalone novel.”
RT Book Reviews

Synopsis2
Olivia Bridge has always been a good girl—good grades, good friends, and a good job that her wealthy parents handed her. Desperate to carve out a life that is truly hers, Liv walks away from it all and takes on the challenge of helping her brothers open a chain of fitness centers in New York City. Just as she’s beginning to find her footing in a new place, she’s caught between two men who couldn’t be more determined to turn all her goodness inside out.
Will Donovan has the capital to make the Bridge brothers’ entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Taking their uptight sister to bed seems a reasonable perk for the risk. Liv is the smartest, sexiest prude Will’s ever met, and he can’t wait to break her down.
Life is too short for Ian Savo to play by anyone’s rules. Sharing women with his friend isn’t anything new, so when Will introduces him to Liv, he can’t wait to get a taste. But falling for the same girl, or falling at all, was never in the plans…
**********************
The Bridge Series follows Cameron, Darren, and Olivia Bridge, three siblings living in New York City. Desperate to break away from the crushing expectations of their wealthy and privileged and equally broken family, they carve out a new path together. But can they find real love along the way?
Each book follows a different sibling’s journey and can be read as a standalone.

Just when I think that there’s no way that Meredith Wild can possibly top the immense love I have for her phenomenal books, her unforgettable characters, and her utterly consuming stories, she goes and does just that.

Over the Edge was viscerally heated, sensually passionate, and an all-around mesmerizing story that simultaneously melted my heart while lighting it on fire with everything that Will, Olivia, and Ian were sharing.

To say that I loved this book, is pretty much the understatement of the century, and let me tell you, if I could give this book all the stars in the world I would. Meredith Wild and her exceptional writing never fail to deliver a story that allows me to become fully encapsulated within everything she’s creating. She not only lets you read her stories, she lets you feel them, she lets you take them in and breathe every unforgettable word of them, and she lets you experience every ounce of emotion and feeling they so authentically give you.

And let me tell you that is just a fraction of what makes her books some of my all-time favorite reads.

Over the Edge proved Meredith Wild’s extraordinary writing talent over and over again, and with every turn of that page, I fell harder and harder under the passionate and spellbinding magic she was creating with her dynamic characters.

From the very first page of Over the Edge I was pulled into everything that Olivia, Will, and Ian were sharing. I was hooked in by their unique charm and vibrancy, and the more I got with each of them, the more I started to fall hard and fast for that firework level connection that exploded from the three of them. That fire between them burst from every single page of this book, and created an indescribable level of pull through every word of this story. The more I felt that fire and pull from these characters, the more I needed them, and the more I NEEDED more of their story, and let me tell y’all, what I got with them was nothing short of everything.

This story is probably my favorite of Meredith Wild’s books to date, and the raw, intense, and phenomenally real story I got within its pages was everything I never knew I needed in my life. Olivia, Will, and Ian’s story together is not one you will soon forget, and I am telling you that this is a book you need in your life. Perfectly crafted, with the best level of blush inducing spice and firework level connection, with enough romance and feels to have you melting on every page, Over the Edge is a story that truly gives you it all.

Now I will be the first to admit that I went into this book thinking that it was going to be a love triangle, so I prepared myself for some serious build, some heart pulling angst, and a glorious level of heat that I knew Meredith Wild would deliver as this story unfolded. Well come to find out, this book was so not a love triangle, which was good for my heart because from the very first pages of this story I LOVED both Will and Ian, along with Olivia, and there is no way I could have chosen between them if my life depended on it.

As it turned out there was no choosing to be done because Over the Edge is no love triangle, it’s an unforgettable ménage story that will push your heart to its very limits with its sensuality and honest emotion as Olivia realizes that she is falling hard and fast for two different men…at the same time.

Over the Edge explores what happens when the straight laced Olivia Bridge realizes that she is having true, very real, and very serious feelings for two men. Both Ian and Will have shared women before, but never one quite like Olivia, and soon those two men realize that this smart and vibrant woman has the ability to bring them, and their hearts, to their knees. What may have started out as a bit of fun between these three soon becomes something more than any of them were prepared for. Soon the fire they share begins to burn them and their hearts in ways they never imagined or thought possible, and they all soon find that they might be a bit more out of depth than they originally thought.

Told through Meredith Wild’s exceptional writing, Over the Edge is a distinctive and utterly consuming story that explores what happens when the fire and feelings you have can no longer be denied, and how those fire and feels can take you to the most unexpected of places that you never knew you needed to have.

I have to say that one of my favorite aspects of this story was not only experiencing the unbridled passion Will, Ian, and Olivia were sharing, but also getting to fall head over heels for those three and their individual stories.

Whether it was Will’s story of setting out on his own two feet, getting exactly what he wanted and never knew he needed, all while trying to find a way to handle what was put on his shoulders. Whether it was Ian’s story of trying to realize what he did want out of life and what he could actually have if he allowed himself to have it, all while trying to overcome the heart squeezing and emotion filled past. Whether it was Olivia and her own individual journey of self-discovery as she tried to make her own stamp on the world, while simultaneously trying to show those around her that she wasn’t who they thought she was, all while trying to figure out if she could handle everything that was coming her way in this story.

Whether it was any of that, or any of the other amazing aspects of this book, Meredith Wild weaved together three dynamic characters, three incredibly emotional, passionate, and real journeys, and three people who never knew what was really missing in their lives until all of the pieces finally came together.

Over the Edge was truly a story that I will never forget reading. It was a story that was filled to the brim with vibrant characters, an unforgettable dynamic that I felt through every single page, and it gave me a story unlike any other that I have read. This book gave me three unique characters and their intense story together as they tried to figure out what could be, what they could and couldn’t handle, and what they were willing to fight for with all that they had. Olivia, Will, and Ian’s story in this book carved its way straight into my heart with how honest, open, and real those three are in this book. That coupled with the intense connection of what they felt for one another and how far that connection took them all, seared my heart into this book.

I have no doubt that Over the Edge and everything it had will leave its spectacular and distinctive mark on me for long to come, and that is just part of what makes it the incredible read it is.

Now I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t mention how much I loved being back in the world of The Bridge Series. To say that I have loved the Bridge siblings is not doing them the immense amount of justice they all deserve, and to get the chance to be with them all one last time had my heart feeling like it was practically bursting with the love I had for all of them. Over the course of this series I have fallen for each and every one of them, and I will never get enough of the emotional and life changing journeys I got with each of them.

Whether it was Cam and Maya and their second chance at it all, or Darren and Vanessa’s literal fire as they tried to make it work, or Olivia, Ian, and Will’s story that will simultaneously touch your heart and set it on fire, the Bridge Series is one I will never forget.

Meredith Wild has completely invested me in each and every one of these characters. She has allowed me to fall head over heels for them all through every one of these books in this series. Through every emotional up and down, through every exceptional twist and turn that literally stole my breath again and again, and through every unforgettably intense and real moment, she had me knowing that these character, their stories, and what they each so authentically gave me was something truly exceptional, and for that I can’t say thank you enough.

Over the Edge was the perfect conclusion to this series, and it gave me the closure I crave and need when I say goodbye to a set of characters that I have come to know and love. This book with its heat, its intense passion, and its moments that melted my heart, made me blush, and let me feel it all gave me three characters I know I will never forget. It was everything. And then some. And then some more after that.

This story was the ultimate Meredith Wild book, full of fire, literal spark, and smart and authentic characters my heart immediately went to and stayed with, and I truly can’t say enough how much I LOVED it.

If you’re looking for an exceptionally crafted book that will give you it all, then you need this book. If you’re looking for a book that will sweep you up into its literal spark, while having you blush and melt a bit more on every page, then you need this book. If you are looking for a set of characters that will sear themselves to you with everything that they have, then you need this book. If you are looking for a story that will speak to every part of you, all while having you fall hard and fast for what it’s creating, then you need this book.

If you’re looking for a damn good book, then you need this book in your life this very second.

Trust me on that.

What you get in this book is the ultimate romance that literally gives you it all. The heat, the feels, the characters, and everything in between is there in Over the Edge. It’s there and it’s ready to give you it all from its very first page, so do yourself a favor and get to experiencing it this very moment because it would be so wrong not to.

For the Grayson family the holidays have always been a time of togetherness.

Eat, drink, and be merry is their motto, but not this year . . .

With Marcus and Riley knee deep in their flourishing careers, their spouses, Tessa and Beck, have been decking the halls and dashing through the snow without support from the busy Grayson duo. A new baby is on the way for one of these ladies and she hasn’t even had the chance to tell the daddy; plans for a huge holiday feast are up in the air because priorities are out of whack; unexpected visitors and a bomb of a surprise from Mr. Grayson—it’s safe to say this holiday will be far from jolly.

Tempers are high, feelings are bruised, and it’s not something spiked eggnog can cure. Will Marcus and Riley make it home for the holidays or will Tessa and Beck be forced to ring in the New Year alone?

My Review

*****5 Fiery and All-Feeling Stars*****

A.S. Teague is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors with her downright phenomenal books that pack the best amount of feels, fight, and firework level connection. My love of this author’s unforgettable words was solidified by every thoughtfully crafted word in Unraveled, and the more I read, the more I knew that I was loving every single word, experience, and moment this book was so authentically giving me.

Simply put, this book was the best blend of it all. Experiencing Ryker and Rebecca’s fiery story was consuming to say the least, and I loved every second I spent within Unraveled getting to experience every bit of what those two were sharing.

From the very first page of this story through the very last, A.S. Teague swept me up so fully into the literal fire and spark between Rebecca and Ryker, and I truly could not get enough of everything those two shared as they fought, as they felt, and as they fell for one another.

Unraveled is a story about what happens when two people cross paths, and how that one moment changes everything. This is a story about finding yourself in a place you never wanted to be, and where you go from there. This is a story about discovering what you truly want and need out of life, and how you’re going to go about getting it. And in the end, this is a story about what happens when the fight and fire you have brings you to exactly what was missing from your life.

I loved every single word of this book, and I really can’t say that enough. From the feels, to the level of extraordinary fight and determination of these characters, to all the unforgettable moments I got with them, Unraveled blew me away with everything it had, while simultaneously showing along the way how utterly talented A.S. Teague’s writing is.

What I loved about Unraveled:

  • Rebecca’s got some sass. Rebecca Toler is no lady to mess with, and the literal sass and fire from that girl was enough to have me loving her from the very first moment I met her. What I loved about Rebecca was that she completely owned who she was. She wasn’t afraid to push those buttons that needed to be pushed, and she wasn’t afraid one little bit to do what needed to be done, even if people thought she was a bit crazy for doing it. The dynamite personality of that girl will have you smiling and laughing and just basking in the wonderfulness of that girl and her sass, and I am telling you that you will love her so much. The lengths to which that girl and her sass will go to do what’s right, to figure out exactly what she wants and needs, and to do what needs to be done will have you heart loving every second you get with her. Trust me on that one.
  • Ryker’s determination. Ryker was a character that my heart went to from the very start of this book. That man is a fighter through and through, but the start of this book finds that man unraveling before your eyes as he’s stripped of everything he once knew, but let me tell you now, that man’s determination knows no bounds. Ryker is a man who isn’t afraid to do what’s necessary, and that’s exactly what brings him face to face with Rebecca. It’s that same extraordinary level of determination that shows Ryker he has to get closer to Rebecca, no matter how much she tells him they’re not going to happen. The fight and determination shows the true lengths of Ryker’s tenacity, and the way that man goes the extra mile to do what needs to be done, to be the man for Rebecca, and to get to exactly where he always needed to be is nothing short of spectacular.
  • All that glorious fight. Unraveled has a whole heck of a lot of amazing fight through every single page, and that is something that will have you loving this book so much. You have Ryker’s fight to try to put his life back together after losing it all. You have Rebecca’s fight to keep Ryker away. Then there’s Ryker’s fight to show Rebecca and everyone around him who he really is and what he’s all about, all the while you have Rebecca’s fight to figure out what’s right, what she wants, and what should be. And don’t even get me started on the level of glorious fight that comes when Rebecca sets her mind to what she does in this book…because let me tell you, that fight is everything. The level of authentic, emotional, and endearing fight in this book reveals so much about these characters and their tenacity, and it is what truly sets this book apart. That fight is everything and then some, and you will love every single second of it in Unraveled.
  • Feels, feels, and more feels. Along with that glorious level of fight in Unraveled, you also get some serious feels that will have your heart melting on just about every page. What I loved about Rebecca and Ryker’s story in Unraveled is that while it had that fight and that back and forth, push and pull, it also had the feels to go with it. It had those moments to melt your heart, to steal your breath, and to give you all the butterflies as you were falling right along with those two. A.S. Teague gives you those feels and the fire behind them all. Getting that with Ryker and Rebecca will have you rooting for them with all you have, while simultaneously basking in those feels that feel so damn good.
  • A connection that never quits. The firework level connection between Ryker and Rebecca was something that sparked and jumped off of every page of this book. From the very first moment those two are together the sparks fly, the chemistry flows, and the build ensues. Through every turn of that page, that build and tension between them grows to a palpable level to the point of explosion…and let me tell you, that explosion when it all comes to a head is heated, visceral, intense, and so very Ryker and Rebecca. That connection and spark between them continues to grow through every part of this story, and it’s that connection that will invest you in everything those two share. You will love them, you will feel for them, and you will be hoping and rooting with all you have for them because of what they share in Unraveled, and I am telling you that fire you get with them is exceptional.
  • Family is family. One of my favorite aspects of this book had to be the feeling of family between the characters. While Unraveled is a standalone novel, you get back with all of the characters you fell in love with during the first book in the series, and you also get more characters to love with all that you have. (Here’s looking at you Gram!) The friendships, the connections, and the loyalty between these characters that you feel and get to watch grow will strengthen your love to them, this world, and this series the more you get with them all. I truly loved every second I got with them in Unraveled, and I am beyond ready to see what comes next for them all in the next book in this series!!

Unraveled was a story of how your life can change in an instant, but how that can ultimately put you onto a path you never even knew you’d want to be on. This book is about the journey that comes navigating that path, handling its crazy twists and emotional turns, and figuring out how to handle all that comes along with that path. And sure that path might not be easy, and it may be full of fight and heartache and emotional moments, but that path is well worth all the fight it took to make it through it all. Unraveled is a story that gives you that path, the people you meet and fall for along the way, and it is a story of what could be when you truly give it your all.

A.S. Teague did an extraordinary job of bringing out the fight, the feels, and the fireworks between Rebecca and Ryker through every single page of this book. I felt and lived and breathed every single moment of this book right along with them, and the level of investment and connection created through A.S. Teague’s phenomenal writing seared those two to my heart. Their story in Unraveled is uniquely theirs, full of banter, sass, and some serious spark, and in the end, getting to be there with those two as they figured out exactly what could be was nothing short of wonderful.

Through every turn of that page, I knew more and more that though things might’ve unraveled some for these characters in this story, they unraveled in the perfect way to give me hope, give them hope, and bring things together in a way I will truly never forget.

This book is one that I loved every single word of. It was consuming, intense, real, and all-feeling wrapped up into one amazing package, and it truly doesn’t get better than that.

Excerpt
For the next three hours I’m swamped answering calls—thankfully no more real estate agents—and helping anyone that comes in while trying to finalize the boys’ events for the next month. When that damn bell chimes for the hundredth time today, I plaster a forced smile on my face and glance up. When my eyes finally focus on the man walking through the door, the smile vanishes and my jaw falls open.

What the actual fuck? His head is high as he looks around, studying the room. After giving the gym a quick onceover, his gaze finally lands on where I’m seated behind the desk. Our eyes meet and my heart hammers, the pounding so loud I fear he can hear it from across the room. I tear my gaze away from his and scan his body, surprised at the physical reaction I’m having to him.

With a slight shake of my head, I slap my palms on the paper-covered wood, and shove out of my chair, causing it to shoot out at least ten feet behind me. “You have some nerve walking in here.”

He stops in his tracks and blinks at me before an easy smile crosses his face. “Rebecca Toler. Shoulda known I’d see you here.” He drawls as he continues walking toward me.

My pulse is pounding in my ears and my stomach is practicing its floor routine for the Olympics as I stare at the man in front of me. Taking a minute to appreciate his strong jaw line that’s covered in scruff, I notice that his hair is in desperate need of a trim as it falls across one eye.

Fuck, he’s sexy.

He always had been. Regardless how much it pains me to admit it. Though his looks weren’t why I wanted to full body hurl him from the building. Memories of our last interaction flood my mind, along with the hurt and anger I’d felt.

“How ya been, Reb?” he asks with a familiarity he doesn’t have.

His use of my nickname, a familiarity he doesn’t have––or deserve––causes me to snap childishly, “Who said you could call me that?”

He grins, but doesn’t reply.

Fuck, that grin is hot.

“What are you doing in Atlanta, Ryker?” I ask, attitude still thick in my voice.

He takes his time looking me over and my body betrays me by flushing at the attention. His eyes are appreciative of what they see, but strangely enough, it doesn’t feel like he’s ogling me.

He steps forward and shoves his hands in the pockets of his washed out jeans that hang low on his hips. “Well, I was in town and thought I’d stop in and say hello to my buddy Breccan. Seeing you is an unexpected bonus.” His lips tip up in a smile and my stomach flips again.

“Your buddy?” I hiss through clenched teeth while attempting not to let my gaze linger on his pants any longer. The thought of Ryker and Breccan ever being buddies would have been funny, if I wasn’t too shocked to laugh.

His gaze finally makes it back to mine and he nods once.

For a few moments we simply stare at each other, him smiling while I scowl.

My Review

*****5 Unforgettably Emotional Stars*****

See Through Heart by Amie Knight was a beautifully emotional debut novel that truly touched me on every level. This book was so well written, so deeply emotional, and such an all-around phenomenal book that completely swept me up into everything it had. From the very first page of this story I was beyond taken with Ainsely and Adrian’s story of love, life, and loss, and through it all I just feel deeper and harder for everything those two were sharing.

This story is one that will open your heart up wide, flood it with feels that will have you simultaneously melting and aching for these two and all that they share, and one that will literally steal your breath with all that it gives you.

Ainsley and Adrian’s story is real. It’s raw, it’s deeply emotional, and it will blow you away with everything that it has. The meaning and the power behind what you get with these two as you experience their story will have you laughing with them, crying with them, and feeling it all with them as their story unfolds. Amie Knight completely consumes you with the two of them with her phenomenal writing, and that connects you into everything you are reading in the most authentic and real way.

There are so many aspects that I loved about this book. I loved how much it made me felt, even when it hurt my heart for these two. I loved how deeply invested I became in their story as everything unfolded in front of my eyes and heart. I loved how exceptionally written and crafted this story was, and how that writing gave me these characters and their story so truly and deeply. But most of all, I just loved this book, wholeheartedly with everything I had and I truly can’t say that enough.

What I loved about See Through Heart:

  • How in the world is this a debut novel? If I didn’t know it, I would never have guessed that this was a debut novel. Amie Knight’s writing is flawless, and the way that she completely puts you in this story with all of her characters was nothing short of spectacular. Her writing gave me it all while I was reading this book. It gave me these characters, it gave me their heart touching journey as they tried to get back to one another, and it gave me all of the feels with them as they went through it all. Amie Knight’s powerful writing is honest, raw, and will have you feeling beyond in this story because of how exceptionally and meaningfully she crafts every word and emotion, and it honestly doesn’t get better than that. I have no doubt that more amazing things are about to come from this author, and I can’t wait to get my hands on whatever she has in store for us all next.
  • Ainsely and Adrian’s journey. I have to say that one of my favorite aspects of this book was getting to experience Adrian, Ainsley, Lorelei, and the many other phenomenal characters of this book throughout so many parts of their life. I met them as young children, I got to be there as their friendships grew and developed. I got to be there in the moments that things started to change, and I got to feel every ounce of emotion that went with all of that as they grew closer to one another, as they started to fall, and eventually as it all fell apart. Getting to experience all of that with these characters seared them all to my heart. It also invested me in them so deeply and truly, and it connected me to them on the deepest of levels because of everything I experienced with them. I got to see them all at their highest of highs, their lowest of lows and everywhere in between, and that gave my heart to theirs a million times over while reading this book. Experiencing every new event that came their way strengthened the bond I had to their characters, and I honestly can’t say that enough.
  • Second chances for the win! Now it is no secret that second chance romances are my jam. They are my all-time favorite storylines for a reason, and See Through Heart reminded me of that again and again. This story embodied what it means to have a second chance romance. It captured every hope, every fear, every heartache, every tear, and every feeling along the way as Ainsely and Adrian tried to put themselves and their hearts together again. Their story sure as hell wasn’t easy, but it was beyond worth it, and getting to be there every step of the way as they tried to see where a second chance might take them was everything. It was intense, it was full of their specific dynamic that I couldn’t get enough of, and it repeatedly reminded me why what they were sharing was so worth fighting for. The tenacity of these characters, their honesty and how they really went there as they saw what second chances could bring them both was unforgettable, emotional, intense and consuming, and I truly couldn’t get enough of it.
  • The hurt feels so good and is beyond worth it. One of my favorite aspects of this story was how much I felt every single outstanding word of it. Amie Knight’s exceptional writing completely allowed me to feel what all of these characters were, and that put me in this book with them, feeling it all as the events of the story came their way. See Through Heart is a story you feel every word of. It’s a story that hurts you, that breaks you open, and one that will have you fighting tears as you experience what it brings to these characters. This story isn’t easy on any of these characters, but its deep emotion, honesty, and authenticity leaps from its pages in the most incredible way. So yes, this book will hurt you, but it will also give you it all with these characters and their journey together, and let me tell you, getting that with them is beyond worth it.
  • Connections you feel every ounce of. Amie Knight completely brings the relationships between all of the many outstanding characters in this book to life a way that makes them all feel beyond real. She lets you understand them, she lets you love them, and she lets you be there in the moments when their relationships grow and evolve. She lets you feel so much for them, and along the way she lets you understand every nuance of their relationships and connections. She allows you to understand their struggles as well, and that gives you the most honest and real connection to them all. Feeling that level of connection between these characters had me loving them even more, and had me knowing through every turn of that page that this story would be one I wouldn’t soon forget.

See Through Heart is a story about so many things. It is a story of what happens when things come into your life that you were never expecting. It’s a story about meeting that one person who can heal you and break you in the very same breath. It’s a story about love and loss and every single emotion that comes in between. It’s a story of sisters, love, and how one choice can change it all.

The power and the meaning behind all of the words in this story is something you won’t soon forget. With an incredibly honest level of emotion, a romance that will have your heart melting and aching and swooning on every single page, and a connection that just doesn’t quit between all of these characters, See Through Heart has it all. It has the characters you will love with your entire heart, it has relationships you will be invested in through every page, and it has the feels that will literally give you it all.

To say I loved and enjoyed this debut book is putting it too mildly. See Through Heart by Amie Knight is amazing. So beyond amazing, so beyond consuming, and so beyond all-feeling. I could say that a million times over, and it still wouldn’t be enough, and that is just part of what makes this such a phenomenal book.

I had it all––until I didn’t.When my job, my livelihood, and my passion are suddenly snatched away from me, I’m left scrambling to keep my head above water. Desperate, I’m forced to walk into the last place I ever thought I’d go. Little did I know that I’d come face-to-face with the woman who would help me pick up the pieces of my unraveled life.

Rebecca Toler’s living the dream––or so I thought.

Beautiful, funny, and tough as nails, she answers to no one. In other words, she was born to be mine.
One problem—she hates me.

It’s time to take my life back, and I’m starting with her.

But, as I’ve learned over the years, sometimes the toughest fight of your life is outside the cage.

Excerpt
For the next three hours I’m swamped answering calls—thankfully no more real estate agents—and helping anyone that comes in while trying to finalize the boys’ events for the next month. When that damn bell chimes for the hundredth time today, I plaster a forced smile on my face and glance up. When my eyes finally focus on the man walking through the door, the smile vanishes and my jaw falls open.
What the actual fuck?

His head is high as he looks around, studying the room. After giving the gym a quick onceover, his gaze finally lands on where I’m seated behind the desk. Our eyes meet and my heart hammers, the pounding so loud I fear he can hear it from across the room. I tear my gaze away from his and scan his body, surprised at the physical reaction I’m having to him.

With a slight shake of my head, I slap my palms on the paper-covered wood, and shove out of my chair, causing it to shoot out at least ten feet behind me. “You have some nerve walking in here.”

He stops in his tracks and blinks at me before an easy smile crosses his face. “Rebecca Toler. Shoulda known I’d see you here.” He drawls as he continues walking toward me.

My pulse is pounding in my ears and my stomach is practicing its floor routine for the Olympics as I stare at the man in front of me. Taking a minute to appreciate his strong jaw line that’s covered in scruff, I notice that his hair is in desperate need of a trim as it falls across one eye.

Fuck, he’s sexy.

He always had been. Regardless how much it pains me to admit it. Though his looks weren’t why I wanted to full body hurl him from the building. Memories of our last interaction flood my mind, along with the hurt and anger I’d felt.

“How ya been, Reb?” he asks with a familiarity he doesn’t have.

His use of my nickname, a familiarity he doesn’t have––or deserve––causes me to snap childishly, “Who said you could call me that?”

He grins, but doesn’t reply.

Fuck, that grin is hot.

“What are you doing in Atlanta, Ryker?” I ask, attitude still thick in my voice.

He takes his time looking me over and my body betrays me by flushing at the attention. His eyes are appreciative of what they see, but strangely enough, it doesn’t feel like he’s ogling me.

He steps forward and shoves his hands in the pockets of his washed out jeans that hang low on his hips. “Well, I was in town and thought I’d stop in and say hello to my buddy Breccan. Seeing you is an unexpected bonus.” His lips tip up in a smile and my stomach flips again.

“Your buddy?” I hiss through clenched teeth while attempting not to let my gaze linger on his pants any longer. The thought of Ryker and Breccan ever being buddies would have been funny, if I wasn’t too shocked to laugh.

His gaze finally makes it back to mine and he nods once.

For a few moments we simply stare at each other, him smiling while I scowl.
