Review for Marry Me For Money by Mia Kayla

Leaving her small town behind, Bethany Casse moves to Chicago in search of a new life. Working at a top financial bank brings her into contact with two men who are as different as night and day. 

Kent Plack, heir to Plack Industries, has no interest in being with a woman for longer than one night. A spoiled and lazy man-whore, he is completely content with his playboy lifestyle, and Beth is surprised when they form an unlikely friendship.

Brian Benson, a finance banker, is gorgeous and respectful. A man plucked from Beth’s dreams, he is definite husband material. Unfortunately, Beth has a hard rule against dating coworkers, but Brian is determined to change her mind. 

When a deadbeat mother and money problems follow her to Chicago, Beth is offered a solution that could fix everything. Marrying for money seems simple enough, but when lines become blurred, Beth faces difficult choices, making her realize that the easy way out just made her life even harder than before.

*Due to descriptive sexual situations and mature themes, this novel is not intended for readers under the age of 18.*

My 5 Star Review 

Omg....I am still sitting on my couch with the cheesiest smile on my face.
This book is so damn good! I couldn't put it down at all. I mean come on I was reading on my phone while walking and ran into the damn door.
Kent is this spoiled rotten dropped dead gorgeous guy who is beyond rich. I loved this character the second he opened his mouth. I just couldn't get enough of him.
Beth is a young girl that came from nothing and was determined to be something. She just wanted to focus on her schooling and then move out of her home town. Well let's just say she wants to run from her past. 
Is it really that easy?? Or will your past always haunt you??
Then Beth got this amazing job and she is now an underwriter at an amazing financial institution.
But then she met Kent....
The chemistry between these two is amazing. I love how they are the best of friends and how he is super protective.
Now please keep in mind there is way more to this story but I am not trying to spoil it for you.
But there are lies, trust funds, a proposal, an agreement, marriage, betrayal, chemistry, romance, hate, and love in the story.
Oh one last thing...the ending of this book made my heart skip a beat.


Mia Kayla is a New Adult/Contemporary Romance writer who lives in Illinois. She is the wife to the husband of the year and mommy to three unbelievable cute little girls who have multiplied her grey hairs.

She loves reading about happy endings but has more fun writing them.

Review for Extra Credit by Poppy Dunne

The first time I saw Will Munroe I had him pegged as a typical LA douchebag—a little too handsome, a little too rich, a little too into his probiotic kale smoothies. The next time I ran into him—at his daughter’s parent/teacher conference (me: teacher, he: parent)—I noticed his steel grey eyes, his hard chest under a crisp white button down, and his suggestively bare ring finger. I was hooked.

If life really imitated art, he’d have swept me off my feet and taken me right there on the principal's desk. Instead, we are stuck in our assigned roles. He’s the workaholic single dad of a precocious girl child, and I’m her fiery substitute teacher. Never the two shall meet. Enter one zany, yurt-dwelling ex-wife, a stock market that never sleeps, and some over-the-top, A-list fundraisers, and I've got plenty of drama ahead. Better to keep my hands to myself.

But when Will asks me out for a pancake breakfast, how can I resist? My heart (and my stomach) say yes, but am I willing to risk my job for a short stack and a romp in the hay? A slow, sensual, mind-blowing romp in the hay…

But where there’s a Will…

My 4 star review:
Will is a man who knows how to handle any situation that he is in. He oozes control and coolness. He is going through a bit of a crazy divorce, in my opinion. Oh did I tell you he is a hot sexy dad too!
Chelle is a young woman who ran from her clown family to have a career instead of following in her parents footprints. Yes, for real her parents are clowns and it is so darn cute!
She gets a job at this zen school and ends up meeting one of her student’s dad. I will tell you that when they first met I thought my kindle was going to catch of fire....
There is so much electricity between these two characters. Poppy Dunne did one hell of a job with the descriptive writing. It was so good that I felt like I was listening to these two talk to one another.
I was so into this book that I couldn’t keep it down. There were times when this book had me laughing out loud.
Oh and I want me a Voltron sweater too!
Overall if you want a super cute, feisty, hilarious, hot, steamy, romance book, will then this book is for you!

Review for Don't Hold Back by Missy Johnson

Don't Hold Back 
Missy Johnson

Three countries.
Two months.
All expenses paid.
Just you and me.

About you: You’re fun loving, adventurous and you have a wicked sense
of humor. You’re spontaneous, open minded and creative. You live for
today because you never know what tomorrow holds.

I'm Erin and this isn't your usual Craigslist Ad. I’m twenty-four, and
full disclosure, I’m dying. But I don’t want your pity. What I want is
your help. I’m not looking for a nanny, or for someone to hold my
hand. I want a friend, a confidante, a partner in crime.

I want you.

** Love Hurts is a series of complete standalone novels that can be read in ANY order. **

Amazon Link:

My 5 star review:

Please forgive me, in advance...
I am struggling to write this review, so please save your judgement till the end.
Please and thank you
This book is definitely a 5 star must read book in my opinion. I just got done reading this book and my heart is broken but yet happy at the same time.
I will be truthful and tell you that the end of this wonderful soul searching story is bittersweet.
I wanted so much from these characters and well I didnt get what I want. But that is ok because I knew that either I would win or Missy would win and well she is the author.
Another truth, as soon as I put my kindle down I sent a text to my husband and said just this... "My life is over and I think I need to crawl in bed and mourn, damn that Missy Johnson, what she just did to me."
Again in all fairness I apologized before I even started this review.
All jokes aside...wow!!!!
Erin dug her heels into my heart and this character will teach you a thing or two about life and love. This strong young character is faced with something so terrible but yet she is still in good spirits. It is incredible.
Cade is drowning in his own very bad life decisions and he needs a way out fast but he can't see the Brightside in anything right now.
Then one email changes their lives and then my friends, this where there true journey begins or does it?!
Well that is what I thought until I read the epilogue and my world was blown away!
This part of the story touched my heart and soul.
That is all that I have for you, I am so sorry that I am not telling you the full story. I need you to experience and endure everything that I did.
I like to put music with my reviews and as soon as I heard this song, I knew that this was the one!
 I fits this story perfectly, in my opinion.

Review: Bossed by Sloane Howell

Sloane Howell

He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.

“Wonderfully witty and fresh, Bossed is a must-read for anyone who loves a sassy, modern heroine and an in-charge alpha hero.”—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne

Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.

Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close a deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.

Advance praise for Bossed

“The sexy banter in this book is over-the-top! Great story, lots of feels, and so much sexy! Sloane Howell brings the heat and heart.”USA Today bestselling author Jamie K. Schmidt

Bossed is sexy. And by that, we mean sexy. Like 18+ sexy. This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

My 5 Star review
I am sitting on my couch trying to form words right now.
First off thank you Sloane Howell for wanting me to read this book.
Now on to my review...
I am not going to tell you details of this story because I don’t want to spoil it for you.
This book was amazing and it was written so perfectly and I need you to read it for yourself.
This book was written as if I was there the whole time in that office with Ethan, or in front of the coffee vendor the day Ethan and Jenny met, or at the ball park when her father got to watch his last baseball game live.
That is the writing that readers like me crave! I went through a shit ton of emotions while reading this book.
Here is the best line of this book. I cried like a baby and I had to push my reading aside and call my dad.
"Only one day in my life Jenny. Just one tops this." He leaned his head over and looked at me. I returned his stare. "What was it?" The day I saw you for the first time."
Freaking brilliant! Sloane Howell took an inner office romance and turned it into a hot steamy sexy ass real emotional read.
I honestly could read this book over and over again. He nails the him and her point of view as well. When each one of these characters are talking, it is as if they are actually talking to you.
Freaking incredible! Sloane Howell makes you become part of the story. It is crazy awesome. Very descriptive!
Congratulations Sloane Howell on exceeding my expectations and throwing me one wicked ass curve ball.

Review for One Final Breath by LK Collins

From International Bestselling Author, LK Collins, comes One Final Breath an emotional and unforgettable read about losing the one you love and learning how to go on without them.

One life.
One choice.
One love.
Sometimes it’s all we get and one moment could change it all. 

I hate the number one—it haunts me; my every waking moment is a constant reminder of what I lost. 

One day, I met a guy and I fell in love. 
He asked me one question…I said yes. 

Our life was perfect…until one day everything changed. 

I watched him slowly slip and fade away. 
The one person I loved, my best friend, my partner, my everything, was slowly dying right in front of my eyes. 
The doctors said he had one year left; he only lasted one month. 
As I held on to his hand, he took one final breath and slipped from this world.
Leaving me; one woman, one broken heart, one child to show the world to…all alone. 

This is my story about the power of one...

One Final Breath is a full-length standalone novel with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger.

Amazon Link:

My 5 Star review

This book will completely take your breath away in the most beautiful way.
One final breath is about death, life, love, and second chances.
What I loved most about this book was that I can relate to Faith and Thanes story...In one way or another.
This is not a fairy tale love story. This is not a story where all of the characters get a happily ever after.
No. This story is your neighbors, or the lady that is standing in front of you in the checkout line, or your local postal worker, your boss, and or your child's teacher.
That is why I have fallen in love with this story.
Faith and Thane are the main characters of this story and they both are going through a bit of a hard time. One of these characters are  going though a divorce and the other is dealing with a death close to them.
Then something magical happens and these two are pushed together. The amazing part is that they could have crossed paths many times but they never did.
So that is all the info that I am willing to share. Just know that once you pick up this book you will not want to put it down, I promise.
P.s. Once I was done with this book I think I attacked my husband with the biggest bear hug ever and when I let him go I had tears in my eyes. That is what this book did to me.
L.k. Collins...I flipping adore you! Still!
Hungry eyes from dirty dancing! This totally makes me think of Thane!

About the author:

LK Collins is the naughty alter ego for the husband-and-wife duo behind multiple bestselling and international bestselling novels. This real-life couple is downright dirty in the bedroom, which bleeds through the pages of their steaming hot stories. While LK writes the books, Mr. Collins, the tattooed god himself, is the mastermind behind so much of the page-turning sexiness. 

If you are looking for a scorching read with chemistry so intense it jumps off the pages, then an LK novel is for you. From standalones to series, their stories will have you blushing and panting, ready to reread them the moment you’ve finished. The heroes are alpha, demanding, filthy-talking men that will do anything for their girl…or to get them.
