Phillip is the the fourth book in the 7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes series. Phillip is one of the cousins. It’s interesting to see the how the family dynamics affects each one differently. In this story we have Ashley and Phillip, who dated in college thrown together. I won’t tell you what happens. You deserve the pleasure of reading it for yourself! This was another fun story in this series. It’s interesting having a different author write each story. I recommend this story! Happy Reading!

“Somebody slap me ’cause I’m on the verge of a romance novel swoon: hand across my forehead, pathetic little sigh, and crash to the floor type of situation.”

I fell in love with a NERD and I LOVED it!!! But not just any Nerd, he was hot, and he was funny, and he may have frustrated me just as much as he made me swoon!! I had such a great time reading all of these characters, I laughed, I fanned myself, and didn’t want to put it down. While I’m not into video games and such, it didn’t detract from a great read!! They drove me nuts at times, but the romance was truly off the charts!! They both bumbled and made mistakes, but the things they did for each other had me melting to the floor. It was different in the best way, and I laughed my butt off almost the entire time!! I thank the Author for providing a copy to review!!

“Magical Kisses, sexy bikes, and dragon rings-I can’t let his wizardly ways cloud my senses.”

***THE BODY PAINTER by Pepper Winters***




THE BODY PAINTER (Master of Trickery #1)
Google Play:

5 off the charts stars

This first book in the duet totally gave me a Book Hangover. I’m left in agony waiting for the second book. This book was unlike anything I’ve ever read before. Gil and Olin were BFF’s in school but with a great deal of attraction and love for each other. Something happens to take them apart from each other and the character in the book that causes this is probably my all time most hated character in a book. I’ll never ever forget this character and what she made me feel! Seven years after Gil and Olin part ways Olin is in need of a job to keep the roof over her head and food in her belly she answers an ad for a living canvas. Gil is the one who placed the ad. All of the feelings these two have kept buried rise right back up but Gil is still hiding his secrets from Olin and she is in danger. As much as he fights his feelings for her he can’t hide for long. Pepper has written a book that will take root in your soul and it won’t release you. The love and drama are addictive. I just want to be back in a world with these characters.

***Broken Knight by L.J. Shen ***



Amazon Worldwide:

I’m not the magical unicorn Author that wrote this masterpiece, so I’m pretty sure I’m going to flub this up in attempting to relay the kind of workout my heart endured from beginning to the triumphant end of this book…

“You fill up the empty, dark space-like the moon owns the sky. It is quiet. It is bright. It doesn’t need to be a ball of flame to be noticed. It simply exists. It forever glows.”

Every emotion that has a name, I probably felt it. The second generation is no less frustrating, addictive, endearing, lustful, and beautifully broken than the first, and fans of the elder generation…this book will take you on a ride that I don’t think any of us were prepared for. It explored so many relationships between characters new and old, and Luna and Knight blazed an inferno right down the middle. My heart expanded tenfold, only to deflate, only to explode, and over and over it went for so many different reasons. It was a story that new readers will be able to appreciate, but fans of the Hotholes from the very beginning? A gift of utter and complete perfection for those of us that fell hard and now even harder. I cried for so many different reasons, and the sheer range of emotions I hit while reading only left me in awe of this series, this Author, and these characters. This one goes on the Top Reads of 2019 and I’m sure it will go on many others. I thank the Author once again for the honor to review.

“Our love always had a pulse. Sometimes it was faint. Sometimes it was beating so hard I couldn’t hear anyone else. But it would never die. It can’t. I won’t let it.”

***I Hate You by Author Ilsa Madden-Mills***



Amazon Worldwide:

Add to GoodReads:

A flirty and feisty second chance college sports romance with feels, a scorching hot couple that burned my Kindle screen, once they got their heads out of their prospective posteriors…For me? A pet bird stole the show and made me giggle incessantly, while Charisma and Blaze figured things out and mostly had me screaming at them through the kindle. Intermingled with blunders and misunderstandings, I was completely committed to seeing these two end up together but never having any idea if they would or not!! Fun, sinfully hot, and romance in spades, I absolutely loved it!! I thank the Author for providing a copy to review!!!

“I’m taking this chance…I also know I’m flying close to the sun, brushing at the flame he is, but is life worth living if I give up on the most precious thing I’ve ever held in my hands?”

***Crew Princess by Tijan’s Books ***


Amazon US:
Amz CA:
Amz AU:

Amz paperback:
Barnes and noble paperback:

“I loved him so much. I needed him so much. I yearned for him so much.”

The Author made me cry…a lot. This story really messed with every emotion I had, and becoming so intertwined with these characters in Book 1, I just didn’t want this one to end!! The Crew met every single obstacle possible their Senior Year, but these guys had way more on their plate than most. I giggled, I gripped my kindle, and I inhaled the dizzying, intoxicating goodness that is The Crews. The twists threw me right off the chair, the jaw drops were a plenty, and the journey these characters took just blew me away. The END!!! I just can’t wait for the next book!! I thank the Author for providing a copy to review!!

“No one else makes me feel like I’m half a person. My other half is in my arms. No matter what happens in the future-where we go, where we don’t go-this stays.”
