I'm currently reading The Rub Down and it's really good.

 Dark room

Bare skin

Up next Vivid (ARC). I love this cover.

Merrick Thatcher went through a hell that no one could possibly imagine. He fought to protect his country, his family, and the men standing at his side, but it wasn't just being a soldier overseas that changed him. He watched his friends die in front of him, felt indescribable pain, and lost his sight in the very same moment.

Badly injured, blind, and angry, he's done with war, but now he’s fighting his own battle. So, he’s waiting for it to end, spending his days and nights in a thick darkness no light can penetrate. Until Grace walks into his life and his broken eyes open to a woman that changes everything for him.

A story about two flawed souls finding love amidst the grief. A love that shines vividly, even in the dark, and discovering that sometimes being broken is how the light gets in.

For readers 18+ due to language, violence, and sexual situations.

My Review: (review copy provided)
4 stars
Rachel (h) is an emotional mess, separated from her husband, trying to support herself and business and living with her parents. She is ready for some time away with her friends but just as she's packing up to leave she discovers divorce papers. Trying to make the most of the trip and her friend’s wedding she keeps her feelings to herself and puts her mask on.

While on the flight Rachel's meets an interesting and attractive man. He seems interested in her and her products. They both are going to the same wedding and he wants to learn more about Rachel and  her business. Rachel wants to have fun reunite with her friends and is really excited to see her best friend Nick. Nick and Rachel are a lot alike and the closest out of the group but since her marriage her friendships haven't been as tight knit.

Will Rachel find herself? And will she finally be able to move on?

This book was an enjoyable light read. I wasn't sure what would happen or how things would turn out and honestly it wasn't what I expected.  I want to point out that this is more than a love story but about a girl trying to come to terms with her life choices and find herself. I thought this book did a good job of that. The element of romance is there but it's subtle and I don't think it's the main point of the story (in my opinion). I kind of had a love/hate relationship with her friends while reading this book. They seemed a bit self-centered to me. And then the whole thing with Tom. That's all I'm saying because I don't want to spoil it but I thought it was kind of rude. Other than that I really liked the book and it took me by surprise which doesn't happen a lot. ;)

I wonderful debut for author Katie Kirby!
I recommend!

Only a few more days to get this one at 99 cents!

Resolute. Firm. Unwavering
That was my love for him.
Steadfast for as long as I can remember.
As my best friend's brother, he ignored me before noticing me. He protected me, bought me my first beer, but eventually became my undoing. 
There was a time I would have died to get him to notice me, now I'd do anything to forget him. 
I'm not the one who can tame him, and he's not the guy who will change for me.
This isn't a story about falling in love, this is a story about falling out of love.
Unrequited love. 
And finding the strength to move on.
Here's to the steadfast.
*This is a standalone story that crosses years from YA into NA genre, due to heavy subject matter this book is for ages 16 and up. This is not your typical love story.*

Review...Pucked by: Helena Hunting


With a famous NHL player for a step-brother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation many hockey stars come with. She’s smart enough to steer clear of those hot, well-built boys with unparalleled stamina. That is until she meets the legendary team captain—Alex Waters.

Violet isn’t interested in his pretty, beat-up face, or his rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s previous misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes more than just a hot body with a face to match.

In what can only be considered a complete lapse in judgment, Violet finds out just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. But what starts out as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more. Post-night of orgasmic magic, Alex starts to call, and text, and e-mail and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts, making him difficult to ignore, and even more difficult not to like.

The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.

My Review: (Copy provided)
4-4.5 stars! 

This book is laugh out loud funny! I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn't put it down. I've had this one for a few months and I needed a laugh. I heard it was hilarious and a lot of my reader friends have recommended it. I decided now was the time to read it and I'm so glad I did.

I loved the quirkiness of both the hero and heroine.I found myself embarrassed at times for the both of them.

Violet's (h) stepbrother is a pro hockey player and has just signed on to play for the Chicago Black Hawks, she's already dated a  hockey player and she knows their whorish ways, especially because her brother is one. Violet is all to familiar with the "puck bunnies" and "hockey whores." The last thing she expects is to get involved with a hockey player let alone the captain of her brothers team.

Alex (H) is always the center of the gossip columns, the paparazzi love him and he has a bad reputation for getting it on with one, two or several puck bunnies. You can't always believe what you read and see. It's going to take some convincing but he's determined to win Violet over.

I love a good romantic comedy and this was one of the best I've read in a while. When I first started reading I thought it might be a stepbrother romance, well boy was I wrong. And speaking of her stepbrother (Buck)...I loved him and can not wait to get the "yeti's" book.

If you want a really good, light but extremely funny read then I highly recommend this one. Oh and I can't tell you how many times since reading this I've heard or caught myself saying beaver or beav. ;)

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can't have?

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.

Elle was the girl who'd been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I'd be moving into her family's guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I'd accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem...especially since THE ONE wasn't Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.

My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

He quietly followed me into the dining room, carrying the flatware. The tension in the air was thick as he walked behind me around the oval table, setting down silverware after each plate I’d put down. It was like some weird game of musical chairs where awkward silence replaced the music. The hairs on my back stiffened. We weren’t saying anything, but it was as if I could feel the weight of a thousand words along with the heat of his body so close behind me.
When I noticed he’d just put a fork where the spoon was supposed to go, I switched it. “The forks go on this side, actually.” My hand was shaking. I couldn’t believe how little control I had over myself.
Noticing my nerves, he suddenly placed his hand over mine and whispered, “Stop.”
Chills ran through me. My heart started to beat faster. My nipples hardened. I hated my body for responding to him with equal amounts of fear and lust.
I turned to him, his hand still over my knuckles. It felt like I couldn’t breathe as he just looked at me.
My mother’s footsteps caused Sevin to move his hand off mine with lightning speed.
Mama entered, and we continued setting the table as if our stolen moment hadn’t happened.
