This series has everything I look for in a series. The Men are amazingly sexy in suits and out of them. The woman are strong and sassy. Bennett Is the Beautiful Bastard, he is also a panty ripper and yes can be a bastard. Max is the Beautiful Stranger and he is British, plays Rugby and enjoys having sex in public places. And then there is Will the Beautiful Player. He is just plain sexy and so funny! All of the woman in the series are amazing and full of sass. They talk back especially Chloe with Bennett but they love it! And then with Hannah she has no filter so her and Will are hilarious.

The novellas are great too. They pull the stories together and I enjoy when a series involves all the characters from previous books. I was at Target the day each one of these books came out. It is for sure a series I do push onto people but they have all loved them.

I can’t get into all the characters for this series, I had to actually make a family tree for it. But, I can tell you there is an Actor, businessman/Ex MMA Fighter, NFL Player, a Rock Star and A Military Man! How can you go wrong with all that.

This is one of my favorite series’s because it was not all about the main couple. Every character had their issues and I really do enjoy a emotional roller-coaster and this was a big one. I fell for Gideon the moment Ava laid eyes on him. He is complicated and sexy. He is also sweet and fun. I can not wait for The next two books in the series. The first two and a half books are more about Ava’s story and the next will be more about Gideon. Yum! Seriously.

They work together to get through obstacles in each other lives. They were made for each other. It is emotional, fun and of course Sexy!

I was reluctant at first to read this after finishing Collide and Pulse, but I’m so glad I did. Blaine is now in my top 5 favorite book boyfriends. He’s hot, tattooed, pierced and speaks his mind. Kami is tortured and haunted but extremely real. The chemistry was amazing and I was sad when it was over. I laughed and I cried. And, I’m hoping there will be more books with the secondary characters because they have stories to be told.

Double Full, Kindle Alexander

Double Full (A Nice Guys Series)

Click on the book to purchase!

This is the first book of Kindle’s that I read. It is incredibly well written with the perfect balance of humor, sex, angst and love. The books get’s going right out of the gate and I was hooked before I turned the page! The story of Jace and Colt is a roller coaster of emotions and it’s worth the ride! The characters are well developed and deep and it’s an amazing story of love and loss and overcoming fear. It’s steamy and hot and sexy too! There were tears shed and I yelled a lot! Now that I’ve read this book, I’m a Kindle fan forever!

Ruin, Rachel Van Dyken

Ruin (Ruin, #1)

I was Ruined by this book. Totally floored.  I loved it. When I was done reading it, I started it over immediately! I read it in one day.  Wes….sigh. He’s hot, smart and has a bad boy reputation. He meets Kiersten and there is an instant connection.  He’s drawn to her but she’s reluctant at first. Their story is heartbreaking and beautiful and hard. Rachel is an amazing writer who uses laughter and pain to tell a wonderful story.

“I turned around to send him one last seething glare and ran smack into a tree. Or at least I thought it was a tree. But trees weren’t warm. And they didn’t have one, two, three, four, six, Good Lord, eight? Eight packs? Furthermore, had I actually been feeling said person’s eight pack? And dear God, I was counting. I had touched each muscle. And great, my hand was still firmly placed against the guy’s stomach.”

“Were you just counting my abs?”

I laughed out loud and cried out loud. I recommended this book to more than a few friends and they all LOVED it. It is one of my top 5 books of 2013.

Entice, SE HALL

Entice (Evolve Series #3)

Click on the book to purchase!

Entice is the perfect name for Sawyers book: Lure, tempt, seduce, attract = Sawyer. SE Hall is amazing yet again. I’ve been a fan of Sawyer from the first time we see him in Emerge and we find out he’s tall, bad-ass looking with short hair and dark blue eyes, a killer smile and big muscles. He just stole my heart and I’ve been waiting for his story for a long time. The wait was totally worth it and this is the best book of the series for me! We’ve all grown to love smart mouthed Sawyer but we get to see inside the real man now. He’s just amazing. I literally laughed out loud through the entire book while my heart was melting. I finished the book in less than a day and I can’t wait to read it again. He sets his sights on Emmett, a girl who is a perfect match for Sawyer but she’s resists him. Their story is funny and heart warming and happy and sad and frustrating and beautiful. If I could give it 10 stars I would! Sigh…thank you for giving me more Sawyer! I can’t wait for more!

Favorite quotes:

“I’m about six licks away from the creamy center of my back alley blowjob when a sweet voice rings out”

“I want to know you, everything about you. I want to make love to you, which I’ve never done before. Never. When I take you, it will be because you can’t wait another fucking second, and you’ll be begging me to take you to a place where only I can show you I love your heart as much as your body, your mind and everything else that makes you you.”

The Mending Hearts Series, LB Simmons

Running on Empty (Mending Hearts, #1)

I’m a sucker for second chance love stories and this one is wonderful and heartbreaking and amazing. This particular second chance love rides back into Alex’s life in the form of Blake on a motorcycle! This book is well written and witty and awesome. I love the “notes to self” and these characters quickly burrow in your heart and make you care about them immediately. Alex’s girls are so funny and add the perfect amount of extra love to this story. I laughed and cried and really loved this story.
