*****5 Unforgettable Cowboy Stars*****

Let me start this review off by saying that if I could give it all the stars in the world, I would. It is that good. It is that exceptionally written. And it is that damn unforgettable. This book, this world, these characters, and what I got within the pages of this utterly consuming book was everything, and I truly can’t say that enough.

This book took me in its grasp, and didn’t let me go all the way through. It made me fall. It made me swoon something fierce. It had me beyond smitten with these characters, their wonderful and crazy and memorable antics, and all that they shared. It was bursting with feels, the best amount of mystery to keep you hooked into every word and page, some serious romance, and a fire and connection that wouldn’t quit for nothing.

The Line by Amie Knight is a second chance romance that seamlessly weaves together a story of what happens when your past and present collide in a way you never saw coming, causing the most mesmerizing, alluring, vibrant, and breathtaking fireworks of your life. Experiencing those fireworks is equally scary and wonderful and something you’ve never quite experienced before. Getting to experience what those fireworks bring to your life will take these characters to places they never thought they’d be, but can’t help but desperately want to be with all that they have.

This book follows their journey with those fireworks, with the best dose of southern charm and sass thrown in that will have you wanting to run yourself to the peach farm these unforgettable characters call home. Trust me on that. There is no way you can read this book, and not fall in love with everything these characters share, or the magical place they call home.

This book was good. Damn good. It was so easy to fall right into from that very first page, and it kept me beyond hooked into it all with Cole and Everly as they tried to see what might happen if they gave it all a go. It was exceptionally written, thoughtfully crafted, and one helluva story that I know I won’t soon forget, and that is truly just part of what makes The Line by Amie Knight such an extraordinary read.

What I LOVED about The Line:

  • The one and only Everly Woods. Everly Woods is a girl who stole my heart from the very first moment I met her in this book. That girl has been through so much, and over the course of this book you learn about her struggle, her attempt to heal from the abandon and hurt that clouds her past, and how’s she’s done her darn best to come out the other side of it all. Everly is easy to love, easy to connect to, and so beyond easy to root for. That girl will show you the definition of tenacity, what it means to truly give it your all, and what it means to risk your heart and your very soul for the chance at something more. Everly’s journey in this book will pull at all of your emotions, and then some. In the end you will love the authentic, all-feeling, and truly unforgettable story you get with her as she discovers herself, what she truly wants and needs, and how hard she’s willing to fight to get it.
  • Save a horse and ride a Cole. Now let me tell you right now that there is no resisting the one and only Cole Briggs. That man is a bit broody, he’s got a past of his own that pulls at him every day, and at the heart of it all, he is a genuinely good guy just trying to make it through. Did I also mention the fact that he is a hot as sin cowboy that will melt your heart….and other parts of you something fierce?! Because that man is guaranteed to steal your heart, set it on fire, and have it falling so hard for him and all that he is in no time flat. Trust me. There is no resisting that man. I loved Cole’s character because he was real, he was genuine through and through, and he was honest about his struggle and what he was trying to do. That man has been through his own world of hurt and struggle, and this book explores what happens when the one person who can truly make it better, comes flashing unexpectedly back into his life. His story in this book will have you feeling it all with him as he tries to put his own pieces back together, all while you swoon something fierce with what he brings to this book.
  • Past, present, and everything in between. One of the most exceptional aspects of this book was the seamless weaving of the past and present. This book opens in the past with Everly and Cole and their unforgettable first meeting, and over the course of the book you get to see firsthand what happened after that meeting, how these two have come to end up in the same place, and how that connection and spark is still there as strong as ever. Amie Knight does an incredible job of letting you understand how these characters came to be where they are, she allows you to understand their fears and doubts, and she allows you to be with them every step of the way in the present as they both give it all they’ve got when they’re presented a second chance. Every moment of that second chance with Everly and Cole is packed with feeling, some serious swoon and connection, and the unforgettable dynamic that is created when past and present collide. The collision of that past and present in The Line pushes both Cole and Everly in ways they didn’t know possible, and you will be enamored by every ounce of what that brings up with these two.
  • A connection worth it all. To say that Everly and Cole’s connection was full of fire, the most authentic feeling, and some serious passion is really not capturing all that those two share. That fire and connection ignites between them through every page of this book, and just grows and grows and grows as their story continues. That connection is so deeply rooted between those two, and the way it all unfolds as they reconnect and see what might be will leave you breathless more times than you can count. And that is not an exaggeration. There is so much heartfelt emotion behind what those two share, so much authentic feeling, and so much heat and fire that all combines in the most exceptional way to show you exactly what these two share. It’s that connection that pulls you through every lick of their story, and it’s Amie Knights incredible writing that allows you to experience every breath of that. The more you feel that connection and what these two share, the more you will be rooting for them with all you have, and that will have you NEEDING to know what happens next and to see where that connection takes them.
  • A place and people so magical and wonderful. So let me tell you that all while reading this book I just wanted to jump right into where these characters were and spend time with them all. Whether it was Cole and Everly, Joe, Cody, Momma Lou, or any of the other amazing, wonderful, and distinctive characters that make up this book, I loved what I got with them all while reading this book. They made this book feel like home. They made me feel as if I was one of the gang on that Georgia peach farm. They made me feel like I belonged right with the rest of them. The way Amie Knight so authentically creates that world and the characters that make it so special sets this book apart. That thrown in with the good old southern charm and fire they all have, makes reading The Line an experience that is equal parts enjoyable, fun, meaningful, and downright unforgettable.
  • The perfect blend of everything. Amie Knight wove together a story in The Line that was the perfect blend of everything. She created a world and characters that felt so authentic, so beyond real, and that were so easy to love with all that I had. She gave me the connection and fire that had me hooked and blushing all the way through. She had the feels and the emotions that had me tearing up and feeling everything these characters shared so deep in my heart. She created the perfect level of mystery that had me needing to know how it would all unfold. All of that and every other incredible aspect of this book was brought to life through her extraordinary writing to create a book that was the full package. There was romance, laughs, feels, moments that made me cry and moments that had me laughing my butt off. There was family, friendships, first loves, past loves, and everything in between, and that is just part of what made this book so unforgettably amazing to experience.

The Line was a book that let me feel it all, experience it all, and just love it all with these two unforgettable characters as they gave it all second chance. The feelings between them, their fire, and the goodness that emanated from the pages of their story took ahold of my heart and soul while reading this book, and I can’t say enough how much I loved what I got with them. It was real, it was sweet, it was romantic and heated and downright good, and that is just a part of what made Everly and Cole’s love story so special.

This book wove together a story that was packed full of meaning, healing, and an emotional journey of two souls who were waiting for the right time to come back together to put the missing pieces of themselves back together again. The events of The Line explore that right time, and you will bask in every ounce of what you get with these characters as they see what could be.

Everly and Cole will steal your heart, and then some, and through it all you will love them, root for them, and just fall so damn hard for everything they share together. Amie Knight blew me away once again with every consuming word of this book. This thoughtfully crafted and all-feeling story proved over and over again how talented she is, and has me beyond excited for more of her mesmerizing words.

If you are looking for a story that will literally give you it all, and have you loving every word you are reading, then run yourself, don’t walk yourself, to this book this very second. It is so good, so well written, and so enjoyable on every level possible.

Excerpt:

How could it be so damn hot at seven in the morning? I wasn’t sure, but it was. Even in a thin tank, cut-off shorts, and my boots, I was melting. I stood at the top of a ladder Cole had placed against a tree so that we could reach the peaches up top. I used the rubber band on my wrist and tied my hair into a knot at the top of my head, hoping that it helped.

Cole climbed up behind me on the ladder and stood a couple of rungs below, but still, he towered over my small frame.

“Okay?” he asked.

“Yep,” I answered, even though I wasn’t okay. He was so close, and that familiar earthy, smoke smell I loved almost as much as rocky road invaded my senses.

“Good.” He looked at the peaches. “Alrighty. You see the ones that have that pink color?” He motioned to a cluster of fruit in front of us.

I nodded, trying not to breathe in too much. Because Jesus, he smelled delicious.

“Those look ripe and done. The paler ones behind them don’t look ready yet.”

I nodded again, and Cole grabbed my hand. He pressed his fingers in, wrapping both of our hands around a peach. He pushed the tips of his fingers into mine at the top of the fruit, near the stem.

“Feel the give, how it feels soft there?”

I squeezed my fingers around the stem again without his help and said, “Yep. Feels softer there.”

He smiled down at me. “Good. That’s also a sign it’s ripe for picking. But be gentle. They bruise easily.”

Cole’s front pressed closer to my back, and I shivered. The way Cole taught me to do things here was pure torture. It was also outright ecstasy. I lived for these moments as much as I loathed them. Because the man was a damn tease. He’d sent me back to the big house a sweaty, panting mess more times than I could count, my panties drenched.

He gently squeezed our hands around the peach and twisted and pulled. The peach came free, my tiny hand gripped it and his big, rough hand wrapped around mine. He brought our hands to my face and pressed the peach closer to my nose.

“How does it smell?” he asked in my ear.

I wanted to say, “I don’t know. I can’t smell a damn thing but your smoke and leather, and I don’t want to.”

Instead, I closed my eyes. I pressed my nose right up against the peach and concentrated on the smell.

“Sweet,” I said, my eyes still closed.

Our hands moved, and I felt the peach at my lips. My heart hammered and fire raced across my skin, and it had absolutely nothing to do with the weather.

Cole positioned himself even closer, and it seemed, in that moment, that every breath he took sucked up every bit of air in the atmosphere.

My own breath quickened, and a growl rumbled low in Cole’s chest.

“Taste it,” he whispered in my ear, his lips so close that I was sure he could taste me on them.

I opened my mouth and wrapped my lips around the fruit, the fuzzy skin tickling my lips. I bit down, and that rumble I heard from Cole made an appearance again. I moaned as I pressed my teeth to the fruit, the juicy sweetness of the peach sliding over my tongue.

“So good,” I groaned as Cole pulled our hands and the peach back. A little juice rolled down my chin and I attempted to lift my free hand to wipe it.

“I got it,” Cole said, brushing his hand over my chin, slowly picking the juice up with his finger, and ever-so-Goddamn-enticingly placing his finger in his mouth before sucking it clean like it was the best thing he’d ever put in his mouth.

“Delicious,” he said, his hooded eyes on mine as he popped his finger out of his mouth.

And fuck me. I swayed on that ladder, my own eyes closing as I willed my cowboy to kiss me with every breath I took. I made myself only will this about once a day, so I thought I was doing pretty good.

He brought our hands holding the peach to his mouth. He wrapped his mouth around it, his lips brushing my fingers, and I felt it deep in my core. I pressed my thighs together and swallowed a moan.

“Perfect,” he said, staring into my eyes. He held my gaze for a moment more before shaking his head and letting my hand, which was still clasped around the peach, go. Then he stepped off the ladder like he hadn’t just made sweet, sweet love to that peach with his mouth right here in front of me.

I watched him walk off to another tree, place a ladder against it, and climb up like nothing in the world had happened. I kicked the rung of the ladder and turned back to the tree. Damn peach molester.

*****5 Unforgettably Cord & Dana Stars*****

Let me tell you what I know. The sky is blue. My favorite color is purple. Coffee is everything. And M. Mabie knows how to write one helluva damn good book.

Like for real y’all.

I already knew all of those things, especially that last one, before reading this incredible book, but I know them even more now after reading All the Way. This phenomenal standalone romance by M. Mabie was a breath of fresh air that had me laughing out loud more times than I could count, swooning something fierce, and melting for all that I got within the pages of this book with these dynamic and unforgettable characters.

This book was like a tall glass of iced tea after a long hot day. It was so satisfying and refreshing, it quenched every thirst I had and felt, and it just felt so so good and got better and better the more I took it all in.

All the Way wowed me. It blew me away with all that it had. It made me laugh. It made me fall so damn hard for what these characters shared, their unforgettable back and forth, and what their story gave me with them along the way. It made me smile. It made me happy. It allowed me to experience and live and breathe every bit of what these characters shared.

This book made me feel. It made me feel the literal spark and connection firing off between these characters through every word of this book. It made me feel the vibrancy, color, and life of their unforgettable personalities. It made me feel every ounce of what they shared together, and it made me feel how just how good things could be between these characters.

This book gave me it all. And then some.

I’m pretty sure I read this book with a smile so big my cheeks hurt, and with a heart so full that I knew I would not soon forget what M. Mabie so exceptionally crafted and created within this book. I seriously feel as if I could use all of the positive adjectives under the sun to describe this book, its amazing characters, and what it gave me, and I still would only scratch the surface with describing how utterly wonderful it was to read and experience.

All the Way is a story about what happens when the guy who’s done all he can to make himself ready for the woman of his dreams, meets the one woman who doesn’t want to fall for it, or for him.

This book follows the unforgettable and swoonworthy romance of Cord and Dana. Two people who are ready for something more. Only there’s one little problem…one of them doesn’t think that something more could be happening between them.

You see Cord has done all he can to be read for The One. He’s a good guy, with a genuine heart and some serious personality to boot, who knows he’ll know what to do when he meets that special someone he’s been waiting for. But you see, when he meets Dana he soon realizes that every plan he had went out the door because that girl throws him for one helluva loop. He knows from the moment he sees her that there’s something about her that can’t be denied, and something he can’t resist and has to have more of, but the thing is, Dana’s over guys like Cord. Or the kind of guy that she thinks Cord is.

Dana is a girl we can all relate to. She’s the girl who always finds herself attracted to and after the asshole, even though she knows that gets her nowhere she really wants to be. She’s the one who holds herself back, who just doesn’t let herself get too close because it’s never felt right. But you see, she’s ready to change. It’s time for a new leaf, and Dana is ready to have one last fling before putting her ducks in a row, and getting serious because she’s over the way things have been in her love life. And that last fling she’s looking to have before getting serious? Well it may or may not involve one Cord Taylor. (It totally involves Cord Taylor.)

The story that unfolds between Cord and Dana in this book is bursting with their spark filled connection, their vibrant and distinctive personalities, and the perfect blend of steam, pull, feels, and that oh so glorious angst that M. Mabie hits out of the park every damn time.

All the Way follows these two as Cord gives it all he’s got to make Dana realize what’s really happening between them, and as Dana tries just as hard to resist everything he’s doing to her and making her feel. These two definitely make each other work for it a bit, or a lot, but what you get with them along the way as they get closer and closer, as their feelings become oh so real and oh so undeniable, will have you rooting for them with all you have. They don’t make it easy, but trust me when I say they make it so beyond worth it.

What you get with them will have you needing with every breath in your body that these two can figure it all out, remove those obstacles, and give into what’s really happening between them as they see what happens when you truly go all the way.

I have to say that one of my favorite aspects of this book was getting to experience Cord and Dana, their personalities, and every glorious bit of what they shared. There was something about those two that stole my heart with everything they had, and I honestly don’t even want it back because I’m pretty sure Cord and Dana own a permanent piece of my heart after what I got with them during this book. What they share is so real, so authentic, so full of feels and fire and heart, and even though they don’t make it easy, they make working for it the best thing in the world with what they give you in this book.

And let me tell you right this very second that there is no resisting one Cord Taylor. That man will sweep you up with his charm, with his goodness, and with his heart, and you will be in love with him from the very first page. Trust me on that one. That love will grow and deepen through every turn of that page, and by the time you reach the end of this book you will be praying to the good lord above that Cord Taylor will show up on your doorstep faster than you can say purple sweatpants.

I LOVED his character. I loved how real he was, I loved that he had tenacity and determination out the yin yang, and I loved that he was a good man who would do whatever it took to convince the woman he was falling for that he was real, that this was real, and that going all the way was the best damn choice there was. Cord will make you swoon, he will make you laugh and smile, and through it all he will have you knowing that he is the real deal, with the absolute best personality, ready to sweep you off your feet with all he has. That man is everything. I could go on and on about how much I loved him, but I’ll wrap it up because you need to experience him for yourself.

Now Dana Rogers is a female character that I could relate to on so many levels. She is sarcastic, she has some serious fire to her, she’s smart and witty, and she is a girl who has always been drawn to the wrong kind of guy. Dana’s authenticity and memorable voice shined through from page one, and I loved how she wasn’t afraid to be real, how she wasn’t afraid to own where she was, and how she wasn’t afraid to admit to herself that she wanted more. I loved her bold honesty, I loved how this book made her question and wonder and truly think about what she felt and what she wanted, and I loved how this book pushed her to places she wasn’t prepared to go. It was in those places where I learned so much about her, and where I think she learned so much about herself.

She was not prepared for Cord. She was prepared for who she thought he was, but the more she gets to know him, the more she soon starts to realize she was in no way prepared for what he’d bring up with her. M. Mabie allowed me to connect so truly to her through every part of this book, and the more I got with her, the more I loved her realness, the more I felt her heart, and the more I wanted with all I had that that girl would embrace and allow herself to feel what was right in front of her.

This book is all about what happens when you meet the one person who changes everything, and the wild, full of feels and fiery ride that ensues as you feel it all, as you live it all, and as you try once and for all to go all the way.

Mabie completely hit it out of the park once again with this book. It is no secret that she is one of my all-time favorite authors. I love her books so much. I love her exceptional writing, and I love the unforgettable characters and stories she has given me over the years. All the Way was another shining example of the incredible and amazing talent this author has, and how she can truly make the words on a page come to life, right along with those unforgettable characters she continues to create. This book highlighted her talent with seamlessly weaving together heart melting romance, some good old fun and humor, and just enough angst to keep you going back for more. And more. And more. Because it’s just that damn good.

The way she creates a world you love being in, full of characters both main and supporting that give you so much to enjoy, will have you wishing this story would go on and on just to get more time with them all.

All the Way was a story that packed one helluva unforgettable punch. It was the perfect blend of everything. And then some. It had the characters, the story, the personality, the feels, and this honest to goodness good feeling that emanated from every single page in the most phenomenal way. I don’t think I can say enough how good it felt to read this book, or how much I loved it.

This book just felt right. It felt so good. And it gave me two characters that were real, easy to love and root for, and through it all M. Mabie’s exceptional writing consumed me within it all…and that is just a fraction of what made it one of my top reads of the year.

If there is one book you read this week, make it this one. If there is one book you take a chance on, make it this one. If there is one book you think about giving a try, make it this one. You won’t regret it. Not one little bit.

Cord and Dana will sweep you off your feet, have you loving every ounce of what you get with them, and will have you knowing without a doubt that when given a chance to go all the way, you bet for damn sure you go all the way.

Dropout by Jamie Schlosser

Releasing April 27th

JIMMY
Over the past year, I’ve been called a lot of things. Slacker. Troublemaker. Party animal.
I thought I was on top of the world. Turns out, I was pretty close to rock bottom.
Now I have a new title: college dropout.
Talk about a reality check.
But I’ve got a chance to redeem myself. One summer to turn things around. Two months to prove I’m not a complete f*ck-up.
It’s time to change.
I want to get back to being one of the good guys.

MACKENNA
I have everything I need to live out my dream of being a reclusive songwriter—my guitar, my notebook, and blissful silence.
At least, I did until Jimmy moved in next door.
With tattoos, piercings, and mischievous green eyes, he’s got bad news written all over him. And last time I got with a bad boy, it ended horribly.
Jimmy makes me feel things I shouldn’t feel. Want things I shouldn’t want. He’s a hazard to my carefully laid plans.
But he’s only here for two months.
I can resist him…right?

 

****4.5 Phenomenal Stars****

There is nothing I love more than finding a new to me author’s books to love, and let me tell y’all, I loved every unputdownable bit of Dropout by Jamie Schlosser. This book was fantastic. Fan-freaking-tastic. I could not put it down, I did not want to put it down one bit, and I just loved every single moment I got with these characters as they shared what they did. Jamie Schlosser hooked me into this story from the very first page of that unforgettable and heart racing prologue, and every page that followed pulled me in more to this sweet, heart touching, and deliciously heated love story.

Dropout was a book that had it all. Two lead characters I felt so much for. The perfect blend of banter, heat, and feels. A town and world of supporting characters that were lively and so enjoyable. A story that had the right amount of twists and turns, with just enough of everything woven into a love story I could not get enough of.

Dropout is a satisfying, well written, and downright good read that will have you loving every wonderful bit you get with Mackenna and Jimmy as they see what could be between them. You won’t want to leave those two. Trust me. I finished this book with the biggest smile on my face, and I still wanted more time with those two because I loved their characters so much.

This book made me smile. It made me laugh out loud more times than I could count. It made me swoon and melt and just love what these two were sharing. It kept me so encapsulated in what this author created through every turn of the page, and that was exactly what I needed.

What I Loved About This Book:

  • Jimmy Stole My Heart. Let me tell y’all, Jimmy stole my heart from the very first pages of this book. I loved that man. I loved that he was trying to prove himself and turn his life back to where he wanted it to be. I loved that he was a guy with so much tenacity and determination to get what he wanted, to show Mackenna what could be, yet at the same time he had such a thoughtfulness and protective nature to him that just melted my heart. I loved that he wasn’t afraid to fight for what he knew was possible, and I loved that he did it all with a heart of gold that was good all the way through. I think the goodness of that guy shined through every page of this book, and I can’t say enough how much I loved it. I might’ve also loved the fact that he was covered in tattoos and had piercings to boot. Just saying. I am telling you, once you meet this man, you’ll love him. You’ll love his heart, his humor, and you’ll just love every single incredible bit of him.
  • Mackenna’s Fight to Heal. Mackenna is one strong female character. That girl has been through so much, more than any person should, and years later she is still trying to put all the pieces back together. Since everything that’s happened she’s kept to herself, but one unforgettable encounter with her new next door neighbor Jimmy leads to things she never could’ve expected. My heart went to Mackenna through every page of this book. That girl is on a path to healing, and slowly but surely, she along with the help and thoughtful push of Jimmy, starts to heal from her past in order to fight for the future she so starts to want. I loved Mackenna’s strength, I loved her fire and that she wasn’t afraid to be honest, and I loved how she just felt. I felt it all with that girl while reading this book, and getting to be with her as she healed, as she fell, and as she fought to be where she so deserved to be was amazing.
  • There’s something about those two. From the moment Jimmy and Mackenna meet, there is a literal spark that fires between those two that keeps pulling them closer and closer together. What the two of them share is so real, so full of feels, and I guarantee it’ll make you blush, but more than that it’ll have you knowing and believing about the power of meeting the one right person. What Mackenna and Jimmy share just felt so right and so good. Those two have such a connection with one another that builds and grows over the course of this book. Those two grow right along with that connection, and they soon realize that what first started off with sparks, is so much more. Getting that more with them gave me it all, and had me rooting with all I had that those two would figure it all out. Their love story in Dropout will pull at your heart, while simultaneously making you blush, and you will eat up every moment of that.
  • A town and cast of characters I can’t get enough of. Now I have to say that part of what made me love this book so much was the small town it took place in, along with the incredible and distinctive supporting characters that came along with it. Beverly, Jimmy’s grandma, is an absolute gem and there was not an instant with that spunky woman where she didn’t make me laugh out loud. The other characters of this book and world add a phenomenal layer to the story between Mackenna and Jimmy, and just pull you in more to what’s happening. I fell in love with them all, and the small town they call home. When I finished this book I knew I needed more with them all, and I can’t wait to read the other books in this series and to get back to that small and wonderful town. I am telling you, you will just love being in this book and world and the goodness that exudes from it.
  • A little something more. One of my favorite aspects of this book was how it pushed both Mackenna and Jimmy to want more. It pushed their emotions, their hearts, and their purposes and dreams. It forced them both to really think about what they wanted, and what they were willing to do for what they desired so much. This book and its events pushed them both to their limits in different ways, and forced them to realize what was important and what they needed. Getting to be with them every step of the way as they figured it all out, as they tried to see what could be between them, and as they pushed for that more was phenomenal. It was exciting and romantic and scary and it forced them to be vulnerable and honest, but in the same breath it showed them all of what could be if they only gave it all a chance. Seeing them take that chance was what made this book so good.
  • Phenomenal writing that hooks you in! This is the first book I’ve read by Jamie Schlosser, but you can rest assured it will not be the last. I loved her writing so much. I loved how it hooked me in right from the start, and allowed me to feel like I was right there with these characters experiencing what they were. I loved how her writing let me sink right into this story, how it let me get and understand these characters, and how it put me right in the thick of it with them. Her writing brought these characters and their story to life in the most consuming way, and that is just part of why I loved what she gave me so much. I look forward to reading more of her words because I have no doubt I will love them just as much as I did with Dropout.

Dropout is a story of how the one person you would have never thought would mean something, can end up being the one person who means everything. This book is a sweet, enrapturing, and humor and heat filled read that will give you a book full of life, love, healing, and the amazing things that can happen when you have all three. This book just made my heart happy. It squeezed it with what these characters go through and their struggles, and it had me loving and rooting for them through every word.

If you are looking for a story that will take you in with all it has, give you so many moments that will have you laughing and smiling and just feeling it all, all while falling head over heels for the serious connection and heart of two characters, then you need this book in your life. I can’t say enough how much I needed a book like this. It just felt good to read this story, to get to know and fall in love with these characters, and to be with them through everything that came their way.

Dropout was well written, unputdownable in the best possible way, and told a phenomenal story of two characters that may have seemed quite opposite, yet connected in all the right ways that mattered. You will love this book, and I am telling you, in the end you will finish it with a full heart and a big smile, and maybe a bit of a blush, and that is just part of what makes this book so incredible.

Synopsis2

She was my nightmare. Every time I closed my eyes, I watched her fall into that inferno. Over and over, I failed to save her.

I hadn’t been able to reach her, and the guilt only burned hotter over time. Four years later, I was the unreachable one.

Heroes aren’t always saints. Sometimes, we’re nothing more than jaded sinners driven by sleepless nights and hearts full of darkness.

And then I met her. She was a dreamer who managed to soothe my scars and heal my wounds.

But, as the flames closed in around us, I feared I wasn’t the right man to save her. That is until I realized she was the one woman I’d burn the world down to protect.

My Review

*****5 Unforgettable, Emotional, & Real Stars*****

Aly Martinez continues to be an author that blows me away with the power, emotion, and unadulterated intensity and distinctive personality she perfectly weaves together in all of her stories. When I read a book by her, her words aren’t just letters on a page. They’re real, raw, consuming words that I live and breathe a feel every single ounce of. They’re honest and heartbreaking in the most enrapturing way. They make you smile and cry and ache for her characters something fierce, and through every single page of her stories you know you’re getting it all. And then some.

Every single one of her books has been like this, yet with each new book she so thoughtfully crafts, she adds a new and distinctive layer to what she’s creating that pushes your feelings, your heart, and your very soul right along with her characters. She puts you right in the thick of it in every single unforgettable story she creates, and through every turn of that page you sink further into the literal amazingness she is creating.

The way that Aly Martinez weaves this all together through all of her books, yet makes it feel phenomenally different and unique with every new story she creates exemplifies the power and magnitude of her writing and storytelling.

Aly Martinez’s writing is a league of its own. Each new story, each new world, and each new set of characters she lets me so fully experience continue to blow me, my mind, and my heart away with all they have. With the most amazing blend of all-feeling emotion, searing heat and connection, dynamic characters that burrow themselves so deeply into my heart, and a story that just doesn’t quit, her books continue to give me everything.

Singe, the first book in her new Guardian Protection Series, continued to build upon the love I have for all of Aly’s characters and stories. This book opened up a whole new world of characters for me to love and claim, along with some old faces that tugged at my heart in that special way. This book brought this world to life in the fiercest and most emotional of ways, with a story of what happens when two people are reunited with their biggest dream and their most unforgettable nightmare in the same moment.

What ensues in this book is a story exceptionally singed with the deepest of fears and regrets, the most authentic honesty and hope, and two unforgettable characters who would do anything to protect what they both feel so truly.

From the very first word of Singe you are put right in the heart of what Rhion and Jude share together. You are shown and given the chance to experience every step of their journey in this book. From the intense moment they first meet that changes their lives forever, to what happens when they come face to face again for the first time, to what they both go through as they navigate their world of feelings, their pasts that are currently crashing full force into their presents, and their deeply felt connection that equally brings them to life and threatens to tear them apart in the same breath.

Every single word and moment of Singe allows you to feel and experience what Jude and Rhion go through in this story as they try to make their way through what this reunion of theirs means. Aly Martinez allows you to dive deep into the minds and hearts of her characters in a way that gives you them in the most honest, vulnerable, and authentic way. She allows you to see the real them, to understand their fears, doubts, and worries, and she allows you to understand exactly why things have gone the way they have for both of them. She lets you get their highs and how much they let these two soar, she lets you get the heartbreaking lows they’ve had and continue to share, and she gives you every single second in between that pulls your heart to theirs as they share what they do.

Singe is a story of second chances, do overs, and equally hopeful and harsh realities. It’s a story of who you were, who you want to be, and who you ultimately become through the fight of your life. It’s a story of what happens when you experience a moment that literally takes you to your knees and eviscerates you in the most burning and emotional of ways. It’s a story of how the ashes leftover of your heart, your soul, and your very life can ultimately rise again if given the right spark to bring you back to life.

It’s a breathtakingly emotional and intense story of what could’ve been, what should’ve been, and what will be with Jude and Rhion as they attempt to put themselves back together in the way they always needed to be.

Their story isn’t easy. In fact I think it broke my heart more times than I could count because of how emotional and real and aching it was. Yet through every single moment I cried, and every single moment that threatened to break me along with them, I felt how much these two shared, and what could be. Along with that dark emotion that runs through these pages is the most alluring spark, brimming with hope and feeling and connection that pulls you through it all with Jude and Rhion.

It’s that spark that invests you whole heartedly in these characters. It’s that spark that shows you that even though what they share might be closer to a run through an inferno filled maze, than a walk in the park, it is beyond worth the burn. It’s that spark that gives you the honest, visceral feelings these two share as they attempt to overcome the past that threatens to consume them. It’s that spark that makes this story the literal perfection that it is. It’s that spark that breaks you, makes you, and exudes from you through them as you experience their emotionally breathtaking story.

From the very start of this book Jude’s character was a force to be reckoned with. I felt so much for that man as he lived and fought through this story as everything came his way. That man has been through a lot, and in this book you get the phenomenal opportunity to experience what it’s like to feel the overwhelming amount of feeling that man does. You get to understand him, you get to love him, and you get to be there as he tries to break free of the guilt and emotion that consumes him on a daily basis. I have to say that I think what I loved most about Jude was that he was real. So. Damn. Real. He wasn’t perfect, he made some not so great choices, and he didn’t always say or do the right thing, but he tried. He fought. He persevered in a way that touched my heart again and again, and he didn’t quit, even when most would.

Jude has his fair share of demons, and every moment in Singe lets you be with him as he tries to combat them, as he tries to overcome them, and as he tries, along with the help of a special little lady, to show the world, and mostly himself, that they will not define him.

Now it is no secret to me that Aly Martinez knows how to create a character with the best amount of personality and fire. And boy did she do that with Rhion Park. The second I got in that girl’s head, I loved her with my entire heart. I loved her honesty, her vibrant charm, and how that girl was no wilting flower. Rhion has some chutzpah to her, and she isn’t afraid to say what she feels and thinks and just believes. It was that perfect combination of honesty and tenacity that showed me it all with that girl. Through every page of this book I got to see the many sides to her character that just sent my heart to her more. I got to see and experience the side of her that was real and said it like it was, the side that felt with her whole heart and poured herself into what she knew to be right and true, the side that fought with all that she had to find and prove the reality of it all, and the side that showed just how amazing she was.

Rhion has been through it all. She’s lost and won and fought more times than you can count, yet her heartfelt optimism, honest and vulnerable hope, and tangible determination shows you just what you need to with her. It exemplifies everything about her, and will have you rooting for her with all that you have as Rhion fights for the reality she knows is there.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Aly Martinez knows how to create a pull and connection between her characters that literally sparks off of the page in the most mesmerizing way. That was beyond true with Singe, and with everything that Rhion and Jude were sharing together. The ties that bind those two together were ever present through every page of this story, and the way that Aly pulls you to them as they pull closer to each other is everything. It’s raw and visceral, and coupled with the deeply felt emotion and past they share makes for an inferno level of heat that will make you melt and blush and feel it all whenever these two are together.

It’s that consuming heat coupled with the deep and true feelings they share that pulls you through it all with Rhion and Jude. It’s what gives you that glimpse and that hope of what could be. It’s what shows you that while these two might not have it the easiest, what they do share is worth fighting for, worth breaking down every wall for, and worth feeling it all if it means they get to share what they do.

It’s all of that so seamlessly and thoughtfully woven together through Aly Martinez’s magnificent writing that makes Singe one of the most emotionally enrapturing, perfectly heated, and exceptionally crafted stories that I have ever read.

Singe is a story that opens your heart and yourself up to everything that happens between Rhion and Jude, all while having you know that this new series will be one that you will LOVE. I’ve already got my heart beyond ready for what this new world of characters and set of stories will bring, and I have no doubt that Aly Martinez will continue to blow me away with each story she creates within it. She’s done it before, and I know she’ll do it again because her writing, her characters, her stories, and the emotional and unforgettable mark they leave are just that. Unforgettable. In every way possible.

Singe was a story that I felt and loved and lived every single word of. It was a story that gave me two characters, and their heart aching story that made me smile, made me blush something fierce, and made me love them both with all that I had. This book opened my heart up to them, and showed me what it was like to experience what they did together, and I can’t say enough how exceptional that was to get.

It was everything all wrapped up into an all-feeling, real, and soul touching story that I know I won’t soon forget.

If you’ve loved Aly’s others books, if you’ve never read any of her books, or if you’re just looking for your next read that’ll blow your heart away in the most amazing way, then I am telling you, you NEED this book and these characters in your life. This very second.

My Review

*****5 All-Feeling and Emotional Stars*****

When you fall so truly in love with a set of characters, getting more of them is always a win. Especially when those characters are ones you’ll know you’ll never forget. When that something more with those characters is a consuming and all-feeling journey that gives you it all, well then you’re really winning. And let me tell you, Undone is a novella that truly gives you it all with Breccan and Sidney.

Having loved every single word of Breccan and Sidney’s story in Undisputed, I was beyond excited to get more of them. Their emotionally mesmerizing story in Undisputed squeezed my heart more times than I could count, so I knew that their story in this novella would most likely be the same, and boy was I right about that thought. This story hurt my heart, made it soar and squeeze more times than you can shake a stick at, gave me all the feels, and had me living and breathing and experiencing it all with these two as they went about doing finishing something they always promised they would.

What you get with Sidney and Breccan in Undone is an utterly emotional, phenomenally crafted, and a completely enrapturing story that will make you smile, make you cry, and have you feeling it all from beginning to end.

Undone takes place after the events of Breccan and Sidney’s story in Undisputed, in the in between of that last chapter and their epilogue together. So it pretty much goes without saying that you have to read that book before you read this part of their story. Plus their story is amazing, so you HAVE to read it. You have to.

This chapter of Breccan and Sidney’s relationship follows what happens when those to set out to complete the bucket list they didn’t want to have to complete, at least not without the person who created it. It follows every emotional up and down that comes their way as they check off those boxes that represent the wants and dreams of a young boy. With every new item they check off, Breccan and Sidney soon find that they both have a world of feeling they don’t necessarily know how to handle. That coupled with their own journey with their relationship makes for some serious feels, and some moments that will literally take your breath away with how much they make you feel.

The more items those two check off the list, and the more their relationship deepens, the more Breccan and Sidney realize that they might not be as prepared as they thought they’d be for everything that comes their way. Through every turn of the page in Undone you will breathe and feel and just live it all with them as they fight to keep themselves, their love, and the life of one exceptional little boy alive and together.

What I got with the two of them within the pages of this story was real. It was so so raw and intense at times. There were many moments while reading where I ached for these two and what the events of this story were bringing their way. At the same time, there were so many moments in this book where my hear soared and melted for every ounce of love and adoration these two had for one another. This book and its events aren’t the easiest on Breccan and Sidney, but they are real, emotional, and so unforgettable.

Through every page this story will remind you why these two need to be together, why they must continue with this list, and why their love is worth every ounce of fight these two have.

And don’t you worry your pretty little head too much, because while this book definitely puts Sidney and Breccan, along with their hearts, through the wringer a bit, it is also bursting with so much of their literal amazingness.

It has Breccan, his undeniable charm and personality, and so much of what makes him one of the most endearing men that will completely sweep you and your heart off your feet. This book exemplifies how far that ma has come since we first met him in Undisputed, and every word of this story just sent my heart to him even more. Not to be outdone, Sidney was just as amazing, authentic, and so beyond easy to love in this story. My heart went to that girl on every page of this story, and seeing and experiencing her heartfelt and hard fought tenacity as she faced everything that came her way in this story had me loving and respecting her with all that I had.

The connection and fire these two have is also bursting from every single page of this story, and will have you blushing and melting with everything those two share. What I love about Breccan and Sidney is that everything they share is so distinctive to them and their journey. Those two have fought like hell to get where they are in this story, and even though this story brings on more fight, it brings out the best and most heart squeezing moments with them. Undone perfectly captures what is so special about these two, and will have you rooting for them with all that you have that they will find a way to make it through all the emotional ups and downs that come their way, in order to end up exactly where they need to be.

Told through A.S. Teague’s phenomenal writing, Undone gives you it all with Breccan and Sidney. It gives you their heartache. It gives you their emotions and every feeling that consumes them. It gives you their undeniable love and spark. It gives you every single moment of their consuming journey together as they realize what life, love, and healing are all about. Through it all you will be with them, feeling and living this story with them, and that is all because of what A.S. Teague so exceptionally creates in every word of this story.

Undone is the perfect novella for these two that seamlessly continues everything that made you fall in love with them both in the first place, while deepening that love and connection you feel with them as they fight for the future they both want and so truly deserve.

I loved everything about this story. I loved being back with these characters and in this world. I loved that throughout this book A.S. Teague allowed me to feel so much with these characters. I loved every moment that made me smile and laugh and feel and tear up because that showed me how in this I was with Breccan and Sidney, and it truly doesn’t get better than that.

The raw, real, and authentic moments you get with them in this story are everything. I am telling you, you will love every second of what you get with them in Undone, and when you reach that last page, you will do so with so much love and heart for Sidney and Breccan, and the literal amazingness they share together.

So seriously, run yourself to this story. Let it consume you, let it take ahold of your heart and give you all the feels, and let it give you the life and love of these characters. It would be wrong not to.

My Review

*****5 Thrilling and All-Feeling Stars*****

Chased by Hazel James was an utterly consuming, mesmerizingly vibrant, and all-around amazing whirlwind of a story that I loved and felt every word of. Every single word of this book was so phenomenally and thoughtfully crafted, and bursting with the best amount of charm and personality. From the very beginning of this story I knew I was beyond hooked into what I was getting within its spectacular pages with these wonderful and distinctive characters. The more I experienced this story, and the more I got into those characters’ heads, the more I knew that this book was not one I would soon forget.

Whether it was the enthralling thrill of this read, the phenomenal and exceptional crafting of emotion and feels throughout its pages, the authentic characters that seared themselves to my heart with all they had, or one of the many other aspects that made this book what it was, I loved this book with all that I had, and it was truly phenomenal in every way.

This book was like chasing that most lucrative and enrapturing storm that you equally want and need in your life, but that still manages to scare the bejesus out of you in a way because of how raw and intense and consuming it is. With the perfect combination of feels and emotion, heat and connection, and some serious charm and distinctiveness thrown in, Chased was easy to feel, experience, and just love.

Getting what I did with DH and Paige through Chased brought those two straight into my heart, allowed me to understand them on the deepest and truest of levels, and had me feeling it all with the two of them as they shared what they did together. I will tell you right now that their story isn’t always easy, and there were many times my heart squeezed something fierce for those two because of what they went through together and on their own individual journeys. While it wasn’t always easy on those two, it was beyond worth it to get what you do with them, and I am telling you you will LOVE every single intense, all-feeling, and real moment those two share.

Chased had so many aspects to it that set it apart, and that had me feeling, living, breathing, experiencing, and just loving it all, and I know it is a book that I’ll always remember for so many reasons.

What I absolutely loved about this book:

  • Did someone say storm chasers? Now I must admit that I am a HUGE fan of storm chasing and every exciting, intense, and consuming moment that comes with it. Since I’ve only read one other book that allowed me to follow a storm chaser, I was beyond ready to see what I would get with that aspect in this book, and let me tell you right now, Hazel James did not disappoint. The way that she throws you right into the thick of the storm with these characters, both literally and figuratively, makes this one helluva intense read that has you experiencing it all with these characters. Whether it was the storms DH was forever chasing, the storm brewing within him as he tried to face the darkness of his past, or the storm of feelings that entered both his and Paige’s lives from their first meeting, these two certainly know how to hook you in with all that they have, while simultaneously having you love and crave that chase and everything that comes with it.
  • DH and his own healing. DH is quite the charmer and a man that will have you smirking something fierce, but underneath that wonderful personality is a heart that is bleeding and breaking with what he’s been through. From what he experienced in his childhood, to the web of complicated and heartbreaking feelings and memories he has a result of a day that changed everything, that man has a world of feelings and past going through him. That past and the tight hold it has on his heart and future creates quite an emotional and mental struggle for DH, which Hazel James so authentically and emotionally captures. In Chased you get to be there through every word of DH’s struggle, through his fight, and through every ounce of what he pours into the healing that could be. My heart was with that man, feeling it all with him through every word as he faced it all, and I am telling you, there is no way you won’t love him, feel for him, and root for him with all that you have as he takes that journey of healing on full force.
  • Waking up Paige! Paige was a fun, authentic, and so easy to love character that I connected to from the very first pages of this book. I loved that girl’s personality, and how she had her own vibrancy and charm in spades. That girl felt so real with what I got with her in this story, and with everything that came her way, she started to evolve a bit herself. The start of this book finds Paige starting off the life she’s always wanted and dreamed of. She’s in a new town, starting her first big girl job, and is bound and determined to live the life she always thought she wanted. The thing is though, with one storm and unforgettable encounter with a man unlike any other she’s met, Paige soon starts to realize something more. She starts to wake up, to take a long hard look at her life and what she wants, and soon that girl finds herself on a path she never thought she’d be on, yet one she can’t for the life of her want to get off of. Everything I got with Paige as she evolved, and went on her own journey of realizing what she wanted, what she needed, and what she couldn’t live without was nothing short of spectacular.
  • A charm and vibrancy that is literally amazing. To say that Paige, DH, and the other amazing characters of this book had some serious charm and vibrancy is putting it too lightly. The personality bursting out of this book set it apart in the most memorable way, and had me simultaneously laughing, melting, blushing, and just basking in every word and moment with these characters. Hazel James does an incredible job of bringing out that vibrancy and personality in a way that sets these characters apart from any other you’ve read, and it’s that wonderful and charming distinctiveness that will have you heart going to them and rooting for them through every word of this story. The way that personality comes out from the supporting characters of this book, the town they reside in, in addition to everything DH and Paige give you will have your heart beyond in it all as this story unfolds.
  • The growing of what could be. Over the course of this book, Paige and DH start to realize that their friendship might be leading to something more than they ever thought could be, though there are many obstacles of both past and present that stand in their way. These two share a world of connection and a world of emotion between them that makes every part of their journey full of emotional twists and turns that put them through the wringer. And then some. But let me tell you, what I felt most of while reading Chased was the possibilities of what could be, and it was those possibilities that pulled me, my heart, and these characters through every all-feeling and emotional word of this book. Whether it was the possibilities of what could be between DH and Paige, the possibilities of their own individual futures, the possibilities of what could happen when the pain and emotion of the past turned into the healing and hope of the future, or just the possibilities of what their hearts could feel…those possibilities made this book the amazing thing that it is.
  • One wild heartfelt ride from start to finish. From start to finish, Chased was one thrilling and all-consuming ride that had my adrenaline pumping, my cheeks blushing, and my heart loving what I was so authentically experiencing. The way that Hazel James perfectly balances those intense, adrenaline filled moments, with those moments that touch and squeeze your heart will have you feeling it all in this story. It will have you NEEDING more with these characters, more with what could be, and more of that unforgettable chase that will sweep you up in more ways than one. Through it all, and through Hazel James’s phenomenal writing, I lived this story. I lived and understood and loved its characters with everything I had, and it truly doesn’t get better than that.

Chased was an all-consuming read that took me and my heart for one helluva ride. This story was about so many mesmerizing and all-feeling things, and it gave me two endearing, vibrant, and easy to love characters that I loved with all I had. Their story in this book was filled with their personalities, their wonderful charm and dynamic, and it had me feeling and believing in the possibilities of what could be.

With an emotional journey and evolution that will have tears falling from your eyes, and your heart squeezing more times than you can count, Chased is an utterly meaningful and emotional story that will take your breath away and show you that some chases are worth everything.

I truly can’t say enough how much I loved and felt and just enjoyed every single word of this story. It was so fantastically written, so enjoyable to read and experience, and so damn good. It gave me a story that was equal parts thrill ride, romance, and heartfelt emotional journey. The way Hazel James so phenomenally wove together the different aspects of this story put me in it all, had me believing and fighting and rooting for what could be, and in the end, had me knowing that this story was everything.

Read this book y’all. Read it. Live it. Breathe it. And take it all in, because the chase, the feels, and the journey within it are beyond worth it.

Dirty Dealers was an intense, consuming, and wholly enjoyable read that I could not put down. This story wove together a phenomenal story of second chances, more twists and turns than you can shake a stick at, and a connection and love so tenacious and strong that it truly took my breath away. From the very first page of this book, I was completely swept into the world I was so authentically thrust into, and I could not get enough of these characters and the enrapturing story they were allowing me to experience with them.

This book is exactly what I needed and I loved it so so much. Equal parts intense and consuming, full of shocks and action filled moments, all while giving me an emotional and heat filled second chance romance, this book checks every box and delivers on every level.

Now it is no secret that I love me some books by Tia Louise something fierce. I am a HUGE fan of her One to Hold Series, so I was definitely eager to see what this new world would bring. What I got within the pages of this book was more of her spectacular writing and storytelling that mesmerized me in more ways than one. What I love about Tia Louise’s writing is that it makes the world and the characters she creates so vivid, authentic, and real. She lets you feel every ounce of what her characters do, she gives you so much with them, and through every page of her stories she puts you in the thick of it in the most tangible and enjoyable way.

Dirty Dealers was no different. This story completely swept me up, and through the way that Tia Louise gave me these characters and their unputdownable story, I was beyond hooked into every word that I was reading. With the perfect level of feels, fiery heat, and heart, this story not only had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it would all work out, it also had my heart feeling it all for and with these characters through every phenomenal page.

This book and this story were so well crafted and written, and through every turn of that page, I found myself sinking further into its depths in the most amazing way, and I truly can’t say enough how downright phenomenal that was to experience.

What I absolutely loved about Dirty Dealers:

  • Second chances are my jam. Second chance romances are my favorite kind of love story to read, and Dirty Dealers showed me that again and again through every page of this story. What I loved about getting to experience Kass and Logan’s second chance was that from the very beginning I felt the depth of what those two shared. I felt their past and how real it was, I felt their present and how much that fire and connection was still there, and through every page I hoped that those two would find a way to have that future they both so deserved. Kass and Logan’s second chance at it all was full of so much passion, so much hope, and so many feelings that were so deeply rooted, my heart was seared to both of theirs from the start. Getting to experience their second chance at it all, as they shared what they did, and poured their hearts out was everything, and I loved it.
  • Kass’s endearing self. Kass was a girl who I couldn’t help but love. She was smart, so kind, and she had the weight of the world on her shoulders. After reading her story, my heart couldn’t help but go to her, and through every part of this story I loved and felt for her so much. What I loved about her character was that even though she wasn’t put in the easiest of positions, she still did whatever she could to make things right. That showed me so much about her character and her genuine self, and it had me knowing that that girl deserved the best of everything. I loved her, I rooted for her, and Tia Louise let me get and understand her in the most authentic way, and that is just part of what had me so connected to her character.
  • The one and only Logan Hunt. Now I love me a strong male character, and boy did Logan Hunt deliver on that repeatedly throughout this book. There was no length that that man would not go to for the woman he loved, and for what he knew was right, and I felt and experienced that with him through every word of this book. What I loved about Logan was that he had a heart of gold and the tenacity of the energizer bunny, and that coupled to make him a man my heart just went to. Logan definitely goes through a lot in this book, and many of his feelings, along with his job and skills are put to the test in more ways than one, but through it all that man was there, giving it his all for what he knew was right. I loved that man, his presence, his strong sense, and the strength of his heart and the feelings within it, and I am telling you, you will LOVE him too.
  • A fire and connection you see and feel every word of. What Kass and Logan share is full of fire and connection and a longing that has stayed with them both for years. Dirty Dealers shows exactly what these two share, and how deep those feeling and that connection goes. From the very first moment those two were together I could feel exactly what they were sharing, and I knew that they were going to give me one helluva story. What I got with them was so much more. It was real, it was raw and so darn intense, and it had my heart squeezing and simultaneously melting for what they shared. While there was still so much standing in their way, Kass and Logan fought on, and that fight coupled with all their feeling was the absolute best.
  • The intense and consuming twists and turns. Tia Louise crafted such an enrapturing story in Dirty Dealers that was filled to the brim with twists and turns. This story had me beyond consumed and needing to know what would happen next as all of the pieces came together. The way that Tia Louise wove together the different characters and pieces of this story had me needing more answers, while experiencing those twists and turns of the story in the most vivid and intense way. This story is romantic suspense in the best way, and how it captures the heartfelt love story, with the action packed nature of it all had me beyond in this story. Tia Louise’s spectacular writing allowed me to get it all in this story, and that is just one of the many reasons I loved it so much.
  • A world I can’t wait to get more of! This book opened up a whole new world of characters for me, and I for one can’t wait for more of it all! Tia Louise made every page of this book feel so real, and that had me loving every word of the world she so thoughtfully crafted. I loved the specific and dynamic nature of this new world, I loved the fantastic characters that came along with it, and I loved what I got and how in this story I felt. This series has everything that I can’t wait to get more of…the love, the action filled twists and turns, and every firework worthy moment that has me feeling, living and breathing it all in the most authentic and phenomenal way.

Dirty Dealers was a story about how some loves never truly go away. It is a story about second chances, the fight you have in your heart, and just how far you’re willing to go for the one that matters. This story was real, it was intense as all get out, and it gave me two characters who shared a world of feeling and some serious fire together. Reading and living every word of Logan and Kass’s story was wholly enjoyable, all-consuming, and bursting with their wonderful dynamic and love.

Through every word of this story I was in it with them as they fought for each other and what they knew had to be done. While their story wasn’t always easy, it showed me so much about the two of them, and had me feeling so much with them along the way. Those two proved to me again and again that their heartfelt connection was fierce as ever and ready to be felt, and I could not get enough of it all with them.

If you are looking for a phenomenally written story, with dynamic and enjoyable characters who share so much that will have you and your heart on the edge of your seat, then run yourself to this book this very second. Dirty Dealers was such a good book, and what I got within its pages was one of the most consuming stories I’ve read in a long time, and I’m telling you, you need to read it!

My Review

*****5 Fun & Steamy Stars*****

Jail House Rock was a quick, fulfilling, and phenomenally enjoyable read that had me laughing out loud and blushing on every single page. The antics of Millie and Jake had me loving those two something fierce, and had me eating up every bit of what I got with them while reading this story. This story was equal parts laugh out loud funny, heart meltingly sweet, and over the top in the best way that will have your heart feeling on fire in more ways than one. Liberty Laine completely creates a fast paced and well written read that delivers in every single way possible.

From the very first page of this story I was completely swept up into everything that Jake and Millie were sharing. With a story premise that had me needing to know what would happen next, and a serious amount of spark and connection between these two characters, Jail House Rock delivers a story that is fun, steamy, and downright consuming in the most authentic way. Through every turn of that page I got more of Millie’s fire and sweetness, I got more of Jake’s protective and heart melting self, and I got more of all that those two share together. With the best dose of unforgettable personality and charm, those two found themselves in my heart lickity split, and I loved every single word of this story with them. Their feelings were very real, very insta-love, and very heated to say the least, and that combined to make one helluva story.

Liberty Laine’s fantastic writing gives you so much with these two. The charm and vibrancy they add into every word and page of this book will have your cheeks hurting because you’re laughing and smiling so hard. I could not get enough of what this writing duo was giving me in this story, and I’m already counting down the days until I can get more of their words! Their writing perfectly balanced a quick paced story full of some serious intst-love, while also giving me some serious feels, spark, and some truly mesmerizing moments, and I really can’t say enough how much I loved that!

If you are looking for a well written, consuming, and all-around enjoyable read, then you need to run yourself to this book this very second. It was fun, full of charm and so much humor, and it gave one helluva love story with some serious heat, and I truly can’t say enough how much I loved it! Jail House Rock is was insta-love, fast paced stories are made of, and it is a book I know you will love to pieces!

My Review

*****5 Unforgettable Stars*****

 

 

You know those books that just feel damn good to read? You know the ones I’m talking about. Those are the books that feel like pure magic to experience. The ones that blow you away with all that they have, while simultaneously pulling you in with every phenomenal word. Those books that feel like a hug of sorts. Strong. Solid. Heartwarming. Right. Inviting. Good. Those books are the ones that sweep you up, give you all that they have, and literally leave you breathless from page to page because of what they so spectacularly give you.

Those are the books I live for.

Those are the books I love.

Those are the books that stay with me well after I turn that last page.

Those are the books that show me why reading and books are so amazing.

Franco by Kim Holden is a book like that.

In fact, every single book I have read and experienced and loved by Kim Holden has been a book like that. I could literally use every positive adjective in the dictionary, and I still wouldn’t come close to capturing the true beauty and meaning and unforgettable feeling of what it’s like to read a book by her. Her books are magic. They’re exceptionally written. They’re full of feeling and meaning and so many moments and characters that I will never forget. They’re everything.

Each and every one of her books have been some of my top reads of all time, and Franco is no different. This book was good. Damn good. It felt beyond wonderful to be back in this world with these characters, and the color and vibrancy and charm I got within the pages of this book made my heart happy a million times over. This book brought me back to a world where I feel as if I belong, a world where I feel like I’m one of the gang, and a world that feels pretty freaking amazing to be a part of. Kim Holden brings that world to life in such an authentic and enjoyable way that had me basking in every single word I got of that world I’ve come to love so much.

Franco is a mesmerizing and all-feeling story about so many things. It’s a story about what happens when one chance encounter changes everything. It’s a book about living your life, taking what comes your way, and figuring out what to do when you’re faced head on with what you want, and more so, what you need and can’t live without. It’s a story about finding what you love, living your life with all that you have, and fighting with all you have for the dreams you have. This book is one of life, love, and being in the right place, in the very right time, and how with one meeting, everything you thought you knew and wanted can change.

What you get between Franco and Gemma in this book will have you smitten with those two. Trust me on that one. They will steal your heart, and you will gladly give it over to them with what they so phenomenally give you in this book.

From the very first page of this book, I think Franco owned every part of my heart. The charm, the goodness, and the genuine sweetness of that man melted me through every page of this book, and getting to be there as he went there, as he put it all on the line, and as he opened up himself and his heart to what could be was everything. And I mean everything. Gemma was a gem of a character, and I mean that whole heartedly. That girl beats to the tune of her own drum, lights up every single moment she is a part of, and will have you smiling through every single second you get with her. What I loved about Gemma was how real she was, how truly unforgettable she is, and how honest and open and vulnerable that girl was when it really mattered.

Franco and Gemma share something so real, so right, and so damn good. What I experienced with them in this book had me believing in them, had me fighting for what could be, and had me loving and feeling and living every word of where this story took them. Through every twist and turn, and through every emotional up and down, I was with them heart and soul, loving and rooting for them with all that I had.

My heart was in every single word of what Franco and Gemma shared, and I think what I loved the most about the two of them was the friendship that pulled them through everything. It was that solid and very real friendship that brought me to them in the first place, and it was that connection and ease with them that had me invested in everything that could be with them. What Gemma and Franco share will certainly make you blush, will have your heart melting on more than one occasion, but most of all it will have you believing in the possibilities of what could be.

It was those all-feeling and consuming possibilities with those two that had me smiling, laughing, melting, and loving every single second of what I experienced with them in this book.

The way that Kim Holden connects you so truly to her characters completely sets her books in a league of their own. That was one of my favorite aspects of reading Franco because the connections I felt to him and Gemma, and the continued connections I felt towards the other characters of this world seared my heart to them all even more. I felt like I was a part of this book. I felt like I was with these characters, and like they were some of my closest friends that I understood, and loved, and just enjoyed being with. Kim Holden completely creates that connection, and she makes these characters, their personalities, and their charming and distinctive nuances feel tangible.

And honestly, reading this book just made me want to reread this entire series of books just so that I could spend more time with them all. That speaks to what Kim Holden so authentically creates in these books that I want and crave more time with all of her unforgettable and distinctive characters.

I don’t think I can accurately articulate what it felt like to experience this story and its dynamic characters. I’ve spoken of the magic of this world, and how good it feels to be within the pages of this book, and that is something I can’t say enough. Franco feels like you’re in the exact place you need to be while you’re within its unforgettable pages. It feels real. It feels like coming home. It feels right. And through every page it amplifies those feelings more because that’s what Kim Holden so brilliantly crafts.

Like the lyrics of a song you never want to have end, Franco is a story of two people who meet by chance, yet can’t seem to get enough of one another. This book follows their intertwined story together as they feel, as they live, and as they connect on so many levels on their journey together. Through every turn of that page in Franco, my love for these characters, what they were sharing, and for what could be amplified, and in the end, I couldn’t have asked for a better book.

This book made me feel. It made me smile and laugh and it brought some happy and fulfilling tears to my eyes on more than one occasion, and I really can’t say enough how much I felt, and breathed, and lived, and loved every single word of it.

Simply put, Franco is a mesmerizing story of possibilities, taking chances, and feeling with all that you have. It is a story that’s full of meaning, spark, and a tangible goodness that will literally sweep you up into all that it has, and won’t truly ever let you go. And let me tell you, it doesn’t get better than that, or this book.

Franco was another amazing book by Kim Holden. This book just solidified the love I have for this author and her words, and it has me already needing the next incredible dose of her words that I can get my hands on. Kim Holden is one of my favorite authors for a reason, and every word of Franco reminded me of that again and again. When I reached the last page of this book, all I wanted to do was start the book over again to get back within its literal goodness. I also wanted to give Kim Holden a hug to thank her for another incredible reading experience that I soon won’t forget.

The charm, the authenticity, the distinctiveness, the feels, the pull, the goodness, and everything else in between made this book a consuming and unforgettable read.

This book was everything.

It was Franco. It was Gemma. It was Gus. It was Scout. It was Bright Side. It was Jamie and Robbie. It was good. It was real. It was honest.

It was everything. And then some.

I am telling you, if you haven’t experienced this world, these characters, or Kim Holden’s phenomenal writing, then you are missing out. You NEED these words in your life. You need Franco and Gemma, and you need those bloody wankers, because let me tell you, they give you it all. And then some.

There’s a baby explosion happening for Family Justice and people are
starting to joke that there must be something in the water!

First came the surprise of a lifetime for Stephanie and Calder.

Then came Lacey’s shocking reveal of a second pregnancy during a harrowing ordeal for Cameron.

The big news that Alex and Meghan were starting a family was greeted with joyous enthusiasm but a second shocking reveal hovering in the wings rocks everyone’s world and shakes things up at the Villa.

Victoria and Draegyn along with the rest of Family Justice bring plenty of surprises and some interesting announcements along the way as we catch up with the whole Bendover crew.

Get ready for a bit of drama and plenty of Family Justice fun!

Find out how Finn is faring as the new co-owner of Whiskey Pete’s

Does Carmen have a new and very surprising love interest?

Is Remington Bissett coming out of her self-imposed shell or has she decided that a certain arrogant transplanted from Boston saloon owner, isn’t worth the aggravation?

What about Brody, Heather and Bella Mia?

Parker and Angie ~ are those two ever going to get married?

As if that’s not enough, hold on a minute!

Is that Paddy O’Brien in the desert and did someone say Alex’s parents

decided to retire and return to Arizona?

It’s another heart-warming, sexy and full of laughter chapter in the lives of the Justice Brothers and the family they’re creating in the desert southwest.

Come along once again as we journey to Bendover, Arizona and see if happily ever after is still the order of the day. 
 My Review

 *****5 Unforgettable Stars*****

Let me start this review by saying that I will literally NEVER get enough of this series. I will never get enough of Family Justice, or the crazy, wonderful, and completely heart melting antics that lovable crew gets into. I will never get enough of all of the love those characters share for each other, and how that bond, loyalty, and steadfast love they all share for one another sears them together so fiercely, just as much as it sears each of them to me. I will never get enough of Suzanne Halliday’s all-consuming writing that continues to wholly invest me in these characters, their stories and lives, and their world all the more with what she so exceptionally gives me with them all.

I will never get enough of the full on love I feel for these characters, their intertwining journeys together, and how I continue to feel as if I am more and more part of the Justice family and crew with every turn of that page.

I will never get enough of it all because this series is just that damn good, that damn well written, and that damn perfect.

I would read about these characters making waves and taking names in their nursing home because that is how much I LOVE them, and how much I need them all in my life. Suzanne Halliday has completely created that need for more of them all. The individual and strong connections I feel to each of her dynamic characters is something that I treasure, and it has me feeling, experiencing, loving, and practically basking in every second I get with this crew.

The way that I have fallen in love with Alex and Meghan, Tori and Drae, Lacey and Cameron, Parker and Angie, Brody and Heather, Calder and Stephanie, Remy and Finn, Carmen, Ben, Duke, and every single other unforgettable character of this series is something that I will truly never get enough of. Each new book of them strengthens that fierce love and adoration I feel for all of their characters, and it has me simultaneously loving what I’m reading, while also knowing that I will need more of them all, because that’s how much I love them. That’s how much I feel for them. That’s how much I’m invested in them all.

Every single chapter of the Family Justice Saga has been one that I have loved, but I have to say that there was something particularly special about Unforgettable, the fifth installment in this series. Not only did I have the chance to get back with some of my all-time favorite characters, I got to experience once again how their lives were progressing, and experience all of the ups, downs, and unexpected twists and turns that just seared my heart to them all the more. Getting to be there with every single one of them as they faced shocks, challenges, the best of the best, moments that stopped them in their tracks, and everything in between was nothing short of spectacular.

It was everything, and then some. And then some more after that because this is the Family Justice crew after all, and that wonderful bunch never fails to give anything but their all when it comes to their friendships, their loyalty, their heat and sparks, and of course, their completely enrapturing love.

The events of Unforgettable finds a bit of baby fever sweeping the Justice Family, and I for one couldn’t have been more ready to see where that would bring all of these couples and characters. And let me tell you something right now… that baby fever will sweep you up right into its magical, all-feeling, and heart melting spell, and you will love every single second of experiencing that in this story. This chapter of the saga was practically a baby explosion, which pretty much melted my heart on every single page of this book. Not only were my favorite fictional characters creating something so amazing with the literal new life bursting from the pages of this book, they were giving me more of them, their unyielding love, and their unforgettable journeys that were beyond perfect, and I truly can’t say enough how much I loved that.

Unforgettable is the next chapter that continues each and every one of the incredible and interwoven stories that makes this series the phenomenal thing that it is. This next chapter gives you it all with these characters in a way that pulls you in even more to each and every one of them as they face what comes next. What I loved about this book, and all of the others books before it, is that with each book I got to see where these characters were headed, how they had changed and grown since I last left them, and I got to experience what the next chapter of their lives was like.

Suzanne Halliday does an exceptional job of making what comes next for all of these characters feel so real, so authentic, and so damn right for their individual stories.

Each new chapter with them all pushes these characters just enough, makes them think and feel and live with all that they have, while simultaneously strengthening the bond they all share as they all keep living the lives they were meant to have. Unforgettable, and everything Suzanne Halliday gave me within its pages, did an extraordinary job of making what came next feel like the most magical thing on the planet. The love, the friendship, the bond, and the level of family that burst from the pages of this book was beautiful, emotional, and simply put, unforgettable.

Getting to be there every single step of the way as these characters have fallen, and fought, and just felt all that they has been nothing short of everything. And let me tell you, I look forward to many more chapters to come with them all because I have to know what happens next. I need more of them all, and I can’t wait to be back within their wonderful world as soon as humanly possible. I don’t think I will ever be ready to say goodbye to them, so I’m really hoping that goodbye doesn’t come anytime soon because I love these characters too much to not have them in my life.

This book brought about a lot of change for so many of these characters, and getting to be in their heads and experience it all with them was magnificent because it not only let me understand them on a deeper level, it connected me even more to what they were going through because I got it. I got how it affected them, how it pushed them, how it changed them, how it blew their minds and their hearts, how it made them want more, cherish more, and feel everything in between. I got it all because of the phenomenal level of understanding I had with their characters, and I got it because of how fantastically Suzanne Halliday crafted each and every one of their stories.

Feeling all that I do for these characters had me loving every single word of this book, the memorable and distinctive time I got with each of them, and all of that speaks to what Suzanne Halliday has really created in this series.

That tangible magic, investment, connection, fire, and sense of family has put this series and these characters in a league of their own.

I have to say one of my favorite aspects of this book was getting more of Remy, Finn, Carmen, Duke, and many of the other characters that make up the extended Family Justice. Getting to experience more of them, their specific charm and vibrancy, and seeing where this next chapter brought them all made me NEED more of them something fierce. It also had me knowing that some very big and interesting things are coming these characters way (here’s looking at you Remy and Finn!), and I for one can’t wait to get all of that and more with them. I especially can’t wait to learn more about Remy and some other characters who make appearances in this book, and I am beyond sure that their stories will blow me away with all that they have.

I have no doubt that whatever the next chapter in this saga brings for all these characters, Suzanne Halliday will find a way to make it distinctly Justice, completely unforgettable, and even more wonderful because she does that every single time she writes a book.

Suzanne Halliday balances the time you get with all of her characters so perfectly that every turn of that page brings your heart to them all, while letting you get so much with them that has you craving the next dose of them you’ll get. Unforgettable proved again and again the extraordinary talent of this author, and on every page I was reminded why this series is so good. The level of heart, heat, and feels on every single page of Unforgettable had me relishing in what this book and its characters gave me.

If you have loved this series, then I am telling you that you will LOVE this book. It will burst your heart into a million wonderful pieces, while simultaneously melting you, sending your love to these characters, all while bringing the best kind of blush to your cheeks and one big old smile to your face. And if you haven’t started this series yet, then I am telling you, you NEED it in your life like you need your next breath.

With the perfect level of family, friendship, love, connection, and romance, Unforgettable gives you the whole Justice gang in a way that just has you knowing that everything you’re reading is so right, so perfect, and so Justice, and it honestly doesn’t get better than that.

It truly doesn’t get better than this series, these characters, or their world, and Unforgettable will give you it all as you experience the true literary magic that is Family Justice. And just you wait, because what this book and Suzanne Halliday so phenomenally gives you will have you in full on love with it all, all while counting the days until you can get back into this world once again.

“Am I interrupting anything?” A deep voice drawled from the doorway. Cam looked up and saw Alex lurking in the doorway.
“Hey! Great timing and no, not interrupting. Our old buddy Roman, here,” he said with a powerful thwack on the man’s back, “was just picking my ball hairs out of his teeth.”
Roman jerked to attention when he realized who stepped into the room and threw up a smart salute. “Major,” he said with a deferential nod.
Alex saluted back and immediately stuck out his hand in welcome.
“Who moved the fucking rock and let you crawl out?” the big man said with his usual sardonic bite. Then he took control of their clasped hands and drew Roman in with a laugh. The handshaking, backslapping, bro hugging fist bump routine played out again with Alex giving the guy ten tons of grief.
“Jesus, don’t let his wife see you saluting,” Cam chortled.
Roman smirked. “Why?”
“Because she’d fall down laughing and then I’d have to beat the snot out of you to restore my manhood. That’s why,” Alex quipped.
“Sounds like my kind of lady.”
A thousand dirty references hung in the air unspoken. Cam almost crapped his pants when Big Daddy reacted like a fifty thousand volt Taser hit his nuts.
“She’s pregnant and if the hairless balls of a man-pussy are what she wants for lunch, I’ll come looking for yours.”
That my friends, Cam thought with laughter, is what we call a home run. Alex had the best putdowns.
Roman went from stunned to cracking up and gave Cam a knowing look. “Oh,” he chuckled. “I see how it is.”
Cam nodded and returned the look, “I just bet you do.”
Alex and Roman were a lot alike when it came to control issues. Probably explained why Roman went off on his own to do private security rather than stay with Justice. He didn’t take orders well and had a terrible time playing nice if he wasn’t in the mood. All traits which only became more pronounced after the guy’s wife and kid died.
“Look at you guys,” Roman joked. “Wedding rings and private planes. If I ever feel like getting old and settling down, I’ll set up camp in Bendover. Great name by the way. Very apropos.” His amused snicker was directed at Alex who flipped him off with great flair.
“I hate to break this knitting circle up but we have a meeting waiting on us.” Alex’s meaningful look reminded Cam it was a workday. “Roman,” Alex said with another hearty handshake. “It was good to see you. Good luck with your search mission and all joking aside, you know we’d welcome you here any time.”
“Thanks Alex. That means alot coming from you. And I was just being a dick about you being married. I’m glad you found someone to put up with your shit.”
After a handshake and some muttered goodbyes, Roman left with a nod at Alex. Cam hoped the guy found what he was looking for. In more ways than one.
