Book Summary:

I, Thomas Clifford Donnely, am a manwhore.

I’ve been told I’m irresistible to women. Like catnip for a different type of pussy-cat. I guess you could call me a Tom Cat.

This is the story about how I lost my wingman, broke all my own rules, and found myself falling in love.

Tom Donnelly isn’t the marrying kind, or the dating kind. Even after losing his #1 wingman to love, he doesn’t see the point in relationships. When his sister’s best friend returns to Whidbey Island and propositions Donnelly for a one-night stand, he breaks one of his biggest rules—no fooling around with his sisters’ friends. It’s just sex, nothing more. That’s what Tom does and does well.

What happens when “just sex” isn’t enough?

Hailey King is more than a match for Tom’s flirtations. She’s known him most of her life and has heard the rumors about his “skills” for years. When her perfectly planned future falls apart, will the last man she should ever fall for turn out to be more than a one-night stand?

Longer Review:

This book made me laugh out loud! With his wit, charm & dimples, I immediately fell in love with Tom (like every other woman out there). Simply put, Tom is a player. He’s not looking for a long commitment and he makes that fact very clear to every woman he sleeps with. He’s a one night stand kind of guy, or a few times more if you can handle a no strings attached kind of fuck. He lives on a fairly small island and I’m a little surprised that he hasn’t slept his way completely through it yet…

But then he meets Hailey – or shall I say, he re-meets Hailey, his sister’s best friend who just moved back home. Not only is Hailey off limits because he’s his sister’s best friend, but she’s also engaged, and that’s one line that Tom won’t cross. But when Hailey breaks off the engagement and literally throws herself at Tom, he’s not a man to deny a woman in need….The sex between then is so explosive that it starts to break open the walls that Tom has built around his heart. Even though he’s trying to keep things casual, his heart has other plans.

tom cat teaser 1.6

Hailey’s not a pushover by any stretch of the imagination. She can handle the boys – and Tom. She’s strong, independent and sarcastic. Basically, she’s awesome. She doesn’t fall apart when things get hard and you quickly realize that if any woman is going to tame Tom, it’s Hailey. While Tom keeps feelings out of the equation with his relationships, he certainly isn’t cold. His love for his family is undeniable and I loved seeing his softer side as he deals with family drama.

I absolutely loved this book. The writing is great and I was easily swept away in this story. I mean, Tom named his boat The Master Baiter, WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE?! If you need a fun, funny, endearing read, then you must pick this one up immediately!

Review: Hate Fuck: Part One by Ainsley Booth

Author: Ainsley Booth

Book: Hate Fuck: Part One

Other Books in Series:

Hate Fuck: Part Two – coming soon on March 24, 2015
Hate Fuck: Part Three – release information not yet available

tl;dr recommendation: So much hate. So much fuck. SO MUCH AWESOME.

Book Summary:

I push her buttons. I want to push them in the good way. Dirty, up-against-the-wall, my-hand-in-her-pants kind of way.
But that’s not possible, because I’m dark and she’s light, and we both know it.
So I push her buttons in the bad way, making her hate me.

If a genie granted me three wishes, I’d ask for Cole Parker to never look at me again, that I’d forget the dark promise in his eyes, and that just once, before he vanished from my life completely, that he’d push me up against a wall and fuck me.
Then I’d go wash my mouth out with soap.

Longer Review:

Holy shit. This serial is an incredibly entertaining read that I did not want to put down. If you want an alpha male who loves to dirty talk whose eyes occasionally give a glimmer of somethings softer….something more…then you absolutely must read this now. NOW. There’s so much angst built up between Cole and Hailey – and for good reason – that when they collide they clash mouths and are left with bruised lips. It’s so intense and hot, you’ll slide off your seat.

There’s a cliffhanger – of course there is – it’s a serial. So just forget about that, jump onto this ride and start fanning yourself.

Hailey’s fairly famous family is fucked up. Her sister just blew the Vice President and apparently there’s a sex tape and her father just got over a scandal himself. Hailey likes being normal. She wants nothing to do with any of it, but can’t help that the press and paparazzi keep drooling for her comment at her door. Cole’s part of the hired security team who swoop in to fix anything and everything that money can buy. He’s cold. He’s distant. He’s manipulative. He’s off the charts hot.

Besides the fact that the title of this book is fucking brilliant, the writing itself is actually also quite fantastic. The dual POV was greatly appreciated as I loved getting a glimpse into Cole’s head. I think that was really necessary for me to love him as much as I do. Hailey overthinks things, but that’s also because she’s attempting to protect herself. However, I actually didn’t find her annoying. She constantly tried to talk her out of whatever this was with Cole, but her body wouldn’t let her mind think for itself. Thanks, Hailey’s body, because the scenes between the two of them are insanely good.

Did I mention that I love the dirty talk? FOR EXAMPLE: “Let’s get you inside, then. Inside and on your knees. You owe my cock a long, wet kiss.”

Sure Cole. Anything you say, Cole. Where do you want me to kneel, Cole? I need book two. nownownow. pretty please?

Review: Remind Me by Ann Marie Walker & Amy K. Rogers

Authors: Ann Marie Walker & Amy K. Rogers

Book: Remind Me (Chasing Fire #1) – IT’S LIVE!

tl;dr recommendation: Welp, I found my next billionaire boyfriend. MORE, PLEASE!

Book Summary:

As heiress to a media empire Alessandra Sinclair was raised to put family obligations first. But everything changes the night her first love walks back into her life and turns her whole world upside down. Haunted by the memories of a secret romance with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, she can’t seem to get Hudson Chase out of her mind. Once again torn between two worlds, Allie must decide how much she’s willing to risk to have the love she’s always longed for.

Ten years is a long time to wait, but billionaire Hudson Chase didn’t become CEO of one of the country’s fastest growing companies by giving up on what he wants. Now that he’s got Allie in his sights again, he’s determined to make her regret breaking his heart. And this time, he’s going to make damn sure he’s not so easy to forget.

Longer Review:

Hudson and Allie steam up the pages in this new trilogy! Are you looking for an affectionate but rough around the edges billionaire? OH yes, Hudson’s your next addiction. Ann & Amy give it to us good with this story & you’ll be begging for this book not to end!

Hudson & Allie fell in love ten years ago when they were teenagers, but it all fell apart at the end of the summer. But now things are different. Hudson’s changed his life completely and when he comes across Allie again he’s not taking no for an answer.

Sort of a big problem: Allie’s engaged. Her parents are shoving this wedding down her throat and she’s along for the ride – whether she wants it or not. Allie’s perfectly happy in her life, but she’s not really living. While she’s never wanted for anything material, she’s never really lived her life. When she reconnects with Hudson she’s both lost and found. I quickly and easily fell in love with these two together.

This book gives you PLENTY of drama and more than plenty of sex. There’s wall sex & symphony sex & cabin sex & MOTORCYCLE SEX (holy fuck that was hot) & you know, the kind in bed too. HEY, they were making up for ten years!!

Note: I really really hate love triangles and cheating, but these authors put together the storyline in a way that didn’t make me feel bad about it. THANK YOU FOR THAT. I definitely wanted Allie to pick Hudson and break free from the familial chains that are holding her back. I definitely wanted Hudson to stop being the dirty little secret and be able to come out on Allie’s arm proudly. ahhhhhh, so many wants!

Hudson is adorable. As soon as he meets Allie it’s like his womanizing ways never even existed. He’s transported back to a time when he was 19 and love was forever. Allie tries to fight her feelings for Hudson, but she really doesn’t want to – the connection they have is deep….deeper than the sex, and deeper than anything she ever experienced with her frenchman. WHO BY THE WAY YOU WILL HATE AND WANT TO KICK IN THE BALLS, so don’t feel bad she cheats on him. She’s making the right move. OH, also, the ending is a cliffhanger, but I have a strange feeling it will be ok.

So, in case you weren’t convinced already, here are a few reasons why Hudson’s your next book boyfriend: he’s considerate, sexy as fuck, he talks dirty, he likes a little public pleasure, he’s a little kinky (TIE ME UP, PLEASE), and he’s incredibly affectionate and sweet. And he’s a billionaire. We’re talking total package here. Yup, I’m in. WHERE’S THE NEXT BOOK?!

Review: The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller by L.B. Simmons

Author: L.B. Simmons

Book: The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller

tl;dr recommendation:  Wow. Uplifting and heartbreaking, this is a phenomenal contemporary romance that you must read.

Book Summary:


For some, it’s simply one of life’s certainties, nothing more. For others, it’s merely a fleeting thought, one often overshadowed by the reckless delusion that they have been blessed with the gift of immortality.

For Aubrey Miller, death is the definition of her very existence. Overcome with the guilt resulting from the loss of her beloved family, she alters her appearance from the once beautiful, blonde-haired, blue-eyed little girl to that of one shrouded in complete darkness, enveloping herself in her own unbreakable fortress of solitude as a form of protection for others.

As she enters her first year of college, her goal is simple: Earn a degree with the least amount of social interaction as possible. What she never anticipates is the formation of very unlikely relationships with two people who will change her life in ways she never believed possible: Quinn Matthews, the boisterous former pageant queen, and Kaeleb McMadden, a childhood friend from her past who never really let her go.

Over the years, as their connections intertwine and grow, a seemingly indestructible bond is formed between the three…

But when death painfully reemerges, Aubrey is lost once again, burying herself deeper than ever before inside the familiar fortification of her fears.

Will the refuge of friendship, the solidarity of life-long bonds, and the power of unconditional love be enough to do the impossible?

Will they be enough to finally bring about…

The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller?

Longer Review:

Aubrey Miller – or Raven as she likes to be called – has dealt with death one too many times for her taste. So much so that she believes that she’s basically the harbinger of death. If anyone gets too close, they’re at risk. So she shuts herself off from everyone and everything. She filters her world through her cat-eye contacts and only lets in what she thinks can’t hurt her or anyone else. That all changes though when she steps onto the campus of Titan University. Her freshman year of college starts to chip away at years of self-protection and all is going well until shit starts to hit the fan. And by shit, i mean LIFE.

This book is amazing. I really wasn’t expecting to be so affected by it, but I am. I absolutely loved watching as Aubrey began to shed Raven and come into herself and when she began to revert back to her old ways I loudly protested. I think I could easily relate to this story because it addresses so many issues that people experience (or know others who experience) throughout their lives. Eating disorders, fucked up childhoods, and distorted self-perception are just a few of the serious issues that L.B. Simmons forces you to face. And I loved it – absolutely loved it.

Let’s not forget to talk about Kaeleb. He’s basically the most wonderful man in the universe. The wooing didn’t even have to begin with him – he had me immediately. The relationship between Kaeleb and Aubrey is deep and well developed. I felt that I knew them both and I was definitely cheering for them to TOTALLY GET MARRIED a la Quinn.

This book has so many feels in it I lost count. It’s such an unbelievable moving story of loss, love and acceptance. It’s about how to LIVE and be okay with living. These words didn’t just leap off the pages, they seeped into my bones and flipped the light on in my soul. IT’S SO SO GOOD.

If you’re looking for something to warm you up inside, grab this one. It’s like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter day. #MustRead kids. go get it now.

Review: Slow & Steady Rush by Laura Trentham

Author: Laura Trentham

Book: Slow and Steady Rush – release date: March 10, 2015!

Other Books in Series:

Caught up in the Touch – coming soon on July 21, 2015

tl;dr recommendation: Laura scores with this football, small town, love story!

Book Summary:

She lives by the book—and is still searching for her happily ever after.

Darcy Wilde has tried hard not to live up to her last name. As a librarian in Atlanta she lives a fine life far away from the football-obsessed town of her childhood. But when her beloved Grandmother needs help, Darcy takes a leave of absence and heads back to the home and past she left behind.

He knows how to play the field—and is in no rush to settle down.

Robbie Dalton knows a thing or two about painful pasts. After bouncing around in foster care and the Army for years he is finally ready to move on and make a home for himself in Falcon, Alabama as the newest high school football coach. Sparks fly when the sexy new coach and the sharp-tongued librarian meet, but neither of them is looking to make ties.

But when it comes to love, sometimes you’ve gotta throw away the rule book to cross the finish line…

Everything changes when Darcy falls in love, not only with the gruff, protective, and smoking hot man who’s sharing her days and nights, but also with the complex tapestry of people who weave Falcon together. Could this be where she belongs – and who she belongs with?

Longer Review:

I was definitely smiling at the end of this book. Darcy Wilde is a librarian (yup, love her already) who comes back to her small, Alabama, football-obsessed, town to take care of her grandmother who has become ill. She’s a bit resentful since she’s had to take a leave of absence from work, and she’s really struggling with her emotions. She wants to be there for her grandmother, she knows she needs to be there for her, but she can’t help the desire she has to flee the town just like she did when she was 18.

Darcy’s cousin (but closer to a brother), Logan, is living in town and working at the local bar. He helped his Army buddy, Robert Dalton, get a job as the new football coach. If Robbie can turn this team around, the town will be his for the taking….but if not, he might want to leave now to avoid the pitchfork parade.

When Darcy & Robbie meet it’s immediately electric. But as they spend more time together, they quickly begin to share a connection deeper than the physical. They both turn into lovesick teenagers as they try to tamp down their feelings and keep things casual – because what happens when Darcy goes back to her real life? and if Robbie loses his job?

But some things can’t be helped – and their relationship is one of them. This story lets you watch the two of them build their relationship piece by piece. It starts out because Darcy’s misunderstanding creates a rumor that just won’t die…and that she feels obligated to fix with food & fake dates. But it turns into ATV rides and talking and holding each other when times are hard. Even though Robbie doesn’t want to let her in, somehow she sneaks her way past all of his Army defenses and gets into his heart.

If you like a good football movie or tv show (Friday Night Lights, anyone?!) you will definitely love this book!!

Blog Tour & Review: Play My Game by J. Kenner

playmygameAbout PLAY MY GAME
For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes an erotic, emotionally intense eBook novella from J. Kenner, bestselling author of Release Me. Following fan favorites Damien Stark and his wife, Nikki Fairchild, Play My Game is the story of their first Valentine’s Day as newlyweds, and offers an alluring glimpse of Jackson Steele, the alpha male featured in Kenner’s upcoming novel Say My Name.

Includes a special preview of Say My Name, the highly anticipated first novel in J. Kenner’s new trilogy in the Stark series.

I never imagined that anything could top our honeymoon, but life as Mrs. Damien Stark is sweeter than any fantasy. We are forever bound by our love and our desire. His touch is my greatest treasure—and is purely mine alone.

Yet no matter where we go, the ghosts of our pasts follow. We can’t escape our secrets, or the people who desperately want to bring us down. Even on Valentine’s Day, neither of us is safe.

I’ll do whatever it takes to protect Damien, to fulfill his every need. His kiss is my calling, his passion my truest bliss. The dangers we face, we now face together—and nothing can make me run.

Play My Game is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Another fantastic addition to the Stark Trilogy! I think we all know how much I love Damien & Nikki – see me profess my love more fully here – so to say that I was a little bit excited to read this novella is an understatement. When I was approved for this ARC I had people at my house and we were all playing a friendly game of poker. I looked up from my phone and told everyone that they had to leave. They laughed. I WASN’T KIDDING. So, now that we know how obsessed I am, let’s talk about Nikki & Damien 😉

We pick back up with Nikki & Damien right after their honeymoon…they’re adjusting to their new life as husband and wife and it’s still a little surreal. The title of the novella ‘Play My Game’ is in reference to a game Damien creates surrounding Valentine’s Day; this game is adorable AND sexy. Damien continues to be unnervingly desirable and the connection between him and Nikki only grows with each page. There was a lot of swooning taking place while I read this novella. Nikki’s great here too – she’s conquering her demons, leaning on Damien as she should & finding her footing in her new crazy world. I loved that Nikki gets a little bit stronger every time that we see her.

OF COURSE there’s drama to be dealt with and an introduction to Mr. Jackson Steele to be made (the leading man in the Stark International series – coming soon!!!). I loved every single page. Nikki and Damien make me smile wide every time I get a new glimpse into their lives. The love they share is unending and perfect, even when the world is not. I could probably read twenty million more pages about them and not get bored – so keep them coming J. Kenner!!! loved this!!
