Sure Thing by Jana Aston

Our heroine, let us call her Rose.. no! Let's call her Daisy! No, no. That's not right either. How about we call her Violet? Yep, that sounds right! Violet is in a bit of a shitty situation: she's lost her job, is living on her twin sisters couch, and has somehow agreed to take on said sisters place as a week-long tour guide. The night before the tour begins, she decides that she's going to have her very first one-night stand. Enter the holy grail of one-night stands, Jennings. Sexy, delicious, dirty (British) talking Jennings. Jennings, who Violet assures that she's a Sure Thing. Oh Violet. I'd like to say that's where the laughter came in but for me it actually started on the first paragraph of the first page and it didn't abate. Aston is just that good!

Fun and hilarity ensue as these two embark on a one-week stand and get to know each other as best…

Show Me the Way by A.L. Jackson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I want to get lost in A.L. Jackson's stories and never come out. Really, If I could have been invented as one of her heroines I would live and die a happy girl. LOL

Oh what a fantastic way to start this series. Fans of the author wont be disappointed in the slightest as the Fight For Me books promise to bring so much joy and pleasure to all who get their hands on them.
Fans of her Bleeding Heart series were wondering what would the author bring in this new set of books and boy did she bring it.
Show Me the Way consumed me from the very first paragraph, I didn't have to read long to be hooked, and as with all her books I was desperate to read until I could reach the end.

Rex (swoon), is a single dad. Being cast aside by his ex has left him with plenty of abandonment issues, bitterness and full of resentment. The one good thing in his life and the sunlight in his darkest days is his beautiful daught…

From This Moment by Melanie Harlow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hannah is badly shaken when she's at the store as she first thinks she sees her deceased husband Drew. It is her husband's identical twin brother, Wes. Wes has now moved back to town after living in Africa for several years.

Seeing Wes brings all her hurt, emotions to the surface again making her relive the loss of her husband. She is doing the best she can do to go on with her life for herself and for her daughter.

Wes seems to know just how to handle the emotional steps that Hannah goes through. He knows when to be there for support and when to give her space to work it out on her own. I feel that Wes loved Hannah first and moved out of the country as it was hard for him to be near his brother's family watching his brother live the life he invisioned for himself. Wes is an amazing man. The strong, silent type always are the best.

The more time Hannah spends with Wes the more she 'sees&#…

Without Merit by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Without Merit, is quite possibly Colleen's best work to date.

It isn't about sex (I mean, well, a little). It isn't about a big dramatic love affair. It's about life and family. It's about the consequences of our actions. It's about loving a boy for the first time.

“Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing it deserves is forgiveness.”

A lesson we all could learn for especially our family but friends as well. This book is so moving and so eyeopening to our own flaws and the perceived injustices done to us that if we used a different perspective we might be owing some apologizes ourselves.

"We're just two different people with two different sets of experiences."

I loved all the characters in this book. Colleen makes them so real and so relatable I feel like I know them all. Barnaby, Victoria, Vicki, Utah, Honor, Merit, Moby, Sagan and Luck and ev…

Drunk on You by Harper Sloan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first Hope Town series book. Not having read the others did not effect my enjoyment of Drunk on You.

Nikki and Shane's story was on fire.

Shane, ex-stripper turned bar owner-bartender, has the moves that get all the ladies hot and bothered. He is single but still has his ex lingering about trying to get him back.

Nikki a school teacher, who also has an ex that just won't go away. She hasn't been dating because she is put off men after what Seth did to her.

So, two exes make a right, or something like that. I enjoyed the humor, dialogue and sexy time. Nikki and Ember are forever entertaining. I understand you meet Ember and Nate in a previous book in this series.

Nate is Shane's best friend and being a fly on the wall listening to them gig each other is quite entertaining.

An all around good read that I enjoyed and I would highly recommend. From what I am told the whole series is t…

Played by Jen Frederick

Played is the fourth book in Frederick's Gridiron series and is Ty's story! For those who don't know who Ty is, well he's the twin brother to Knox who we met and fell in love with in Sacked.

While Ty loves and respects his brother, he's tired of always being compared to his twin, of them being seen as a unit. He wants to stand on his own and make the best choices and decisions for himself. He wants his own identity. He's a gorgeous man - funny, sweet, sexy. He's dedicated to his sport and knows the value of friends and family.

Ara is his best friend and has been since they met four years ago. She knew then that any romantic happenings between them would ruin the friendship so she made the choice and stuck with it. She's seen what happens when one person in a relationship is consumed by their craft and she refuses to be with someone who won't put her…

Guy Hater by J. Sterling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love is complicated to say the least and this book will bring to light the differences in types of love. There is brotherly love a plenty and friendship love but then there is that full blown passionate, can't live without you love. The only problem is, one is in a relationship that really had already ended but was staying together out of obligation and guilt. Frank Fisher is the type of guy that lives by his promises and has tried to be an upstanding man. Unfortunately when you meet the woman you're supposed to spend your life with, those promises could be broken. You can't put parameters on someone's heart. You can't tell them how to feel. Do you stay miserable in a duty-filled world, or do you man up, take back control and and fulfil your dreams.

I took a fancy to Frank in a big way. I think I was having a Fish Wish while reading! I admired his work ethic and his loyalty to family and…
