Locked In Silence by Sloane Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the beginning of what I hope will become another readers favourite series and a completely different storyline for the Author of the bestselling, Protectors Series.
It fell so wonderfully new and refreshing and I can't wait to read the next in the series. As with her other books, Sloane always leaves us with a sense of expectation for the next book. She gradually introduces her upcoming characters and by the end we can't wait to beg for the next instalment (sorry we are a pain, I know, but we love your books SO MUCH!!) .

I approached the book with no reservations and without lingering in the protectors story line (which by the way I completely adore), and boy was I blown away. I was immediately transfixed and lost in the story, in the plot and lost in the characters beautiful dialogues. I think Sloane likes to push the WOW factor and always goes the extra mile, never leaves things simpl…

Damaged!: A Walker Brothers Novel: by J. S. Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG Author J.S. Scott has completely blown me away with her lates book in the Walker Brothers Series.
After having read Release! and Player! I was desperate to read Dane's story, being the youngest of the siblings but the most affected, I knew his story was going to be tough. As the saying goes, the best is yet to come, the wait was certainly worth it as Dane's novel certainly was even more special than what I expected and it touched me deeply.

Jan takes us through the trials and tribulations which Dane had to endured after surviving the accident in which his father and stepmother were killed. It was harrowing reading how much he suffered and what lengths he took in order to be out of public eye. Living as a recluse, Dane is forced to refrain from interacting with anyone, and after years of being alone, he is somehow content with his life. His brothers however have other ideas, so…

Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland

Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dear Bridget, I Want You is a great rom-com.

Simon is swoon worthy. He has the accent and all us ladies love the book boyfriend with an accent. He is funny and playful. Are you getting the picture? Oh...and a hot sexy doctor. The full package with the slight dilemma that he is going to move back across the pond after his residency.

Bridget is a widowed single mom. She is a nurse at the hospital and dedicated to work and her son. Brendan is just precious. Bridget has to have a fishing hook removed by none other than Simon. Doing a favor for a friend months later, Bridget rents a room to Simon.

There was a little angst, lots of laughs and plenty of melt your heart moments. I enjoyed this collaboration by Penelope and Vi. Love both of these authors separately and they do great work together.

Highly recommend this one for a fun swoony read.

I was gifted a copy for an honest review.

Exes With Benefits by Nicole Williams

Exes with Benefits by Nicole Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you want a book with heat, depth and substance then EXES WITH BENEFITS is the perfect autumn read to cozy up with. From the title, I thought this would be all kinds of light reading but what I got was some story with punch (there's a pun there) and characters to get my teeth into.

This story couples some themes that I love, second chances and bad boy turned around. In fact, Canaan gave me serious hero-swoon because he was a great guy in the most believable way. Canaan was a man not about to repeat his mistakes and I found I forgave him in the early stages of the book, his character growth between chances was apparent.

"Because you can't write a great love story without tragedy to overcome. Because that's when love is proved. Not when life's easy, but when it's so damn hard you can hardly breathe."

Maggie was a complex woman, I didn't know how to figure her out a…

Black Tie Optional by Ann Marie Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cole and Olivia's bickering and clever comebacks with each other, keep me thoroughly entertained. The chemistry with these two is off the charts.

Enemies to lovers, wedding contract romance that had plenty of witty dialogue. It is true that opposites do attract and these two couldn't be more different. They burn up the sheets and come out swinging. Made me laugh several times.

Olivia a tree hugging save the world gal with her hippy clothes and Cole a stiff shirt business man with no time for nonsense. They explode together.

The sample of the next book in this series looks to be just as entertaining.

This is my first Ann Marie Walker book and I will for sure be checking out what else she has to offer. I am a sucker for witty dialogue and clever bantering.

I received an ARC from NetGalley.

I Want by Ella Fox

REVIEWED BY Tina Shobe 


I Want by Ella Fox
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I Want is book 2 in the Enamorada series but is easily a stand alone.

Kaya Porter has an interesting career. She's a professional house sitter as well as writes a blog. She's house sitting for her best friend, Emery. She's also taking care of Elvis, her pet peacock.

She meets the new sexy hot rich next door neighbor, Alejandro Cruz, when she attempts to go on to his property to rescue Elvis.

Kaya has a strict 'no relationship till I'm 25' policy. Alejandro also has had a very challenging dating past but the minute Alejandro sees Kaya he knows she is his future. I love how Alejandro almost takes baby steps with Kaya. He'll wait forever for her. She has such a hard time accepting that someone like Alejandro could actually want her for more than meaningless sex. She actually is the one that moves their relationship to the next level.

Right when it seems like their future is on course Alejandro&…

The Outskirts by T.M. Frazier

The Outskirts by T.M. Frazier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoy T.M. Frazier's novels. This first book in the Outskirts duet lived up to my expectations. It ends on a cliffhanger that I felt might have happened, but I am still trying to work out how. Of course I am now hanging out for book two, so I get these answers. I also want to know the outcome when the circus comes to town!

I love characters that have a troubled past, or are dealing with anguish. Both Sawyer and Finn are battling with demons from their past but it's the strength within that makes me connect with them. Even in this first part, their self growth was attractive and endearing. They had to conquer their bad experiences individually but when they are together they form a tight bond. I can only imagine it will help them crusade in book two.

As much as I enjoyed this book, some of it left me a little flat. At times I felt an immature quality, I'm not sure if this was just…
