Hero Hair by: Rachel Robinson!! Five stars!


Everyone knows there is no “I” in team, but to Macs Newstead--orgasm-gifting, muscle-filled Navy SEAL hero--there are more important words than team. Words like victory and vanity and selfishness. People say those words like they are a bad thing, but to Macs, they’re simply tools in his highly effective arsenal. When a man’s entire existence revolves around the necessity to end lives, silly, mundane things like second dates or monogamy seem worthy sacrifices. Downward facing dog or doggy-style--it’s all the same to Teala Smart, a whip-smart yoga instructor. She owns her studio like she owns her life--with focus, positive energy, and pure devotion. That devotion, however, does not trickle into her love life (or more accurately, her lust life.) Relationships are a roadblock to her success. They get in the way and tangle up emotions more than the lotus pose tangles up limbs. Men are best kept just for a night and then released into the wild before feelings get too messy. HERO HAIR, the second novel of International Bestselling Author Rachel Robinson’s THE REAL SEAL SERIES, is the account of an life-altering journey detailing the awakening of two hollow hearts, both set on taking their own pleasures without any emotional attachment. The ruthless SEAL finally meets an enemy he can’t defeat, and both Macs and Teala find, against their wishes, and despite atrocious circumstances, a chemistry so explosive it leaves nothing but deconstructing love in its wake.
My Review:
5 stars!!
It’s always so hard for me to come up with words to let a reader know just how much I loved and adored a book. It’s hard to do a book justice when the words are all there in the book and you just need to read it.
Most of you know I am a huge fan of Rachel’s, she writes everything I want in a book, humor, angst, hot sex, likable characters and of course romance. Well her latest book Hero Hair does not disappoint, we get Rachel at her best, once again.
Teala (h) is a great character! I love flawed heroines that aren’t your typical sweet virgins. She is strong on the outside but has some emotional issues she herself isn’t fully aware of.  Macs is kind of a cocky a**hole but one you can’t help but love and as the book goes on he develops into this character that you will always remember. Macs is who he is and doesn’t have a problem with it. 
“He doesn’t just walk like a predator. He is the god**n king of those motherf*ckers.”
I love how honest he is about it. In fact I love both Macs and Teala’s honesty from the get go (at least with each other). J Both are very sexually charged, they know what they want and aren’t afraid to say it, they were both up front with each other and knew what they were getting into. 
“Four nights and then sex?”
“Maybe three. I have to confirm with them. They had some weird timetable I’m not familiar with.”
The chemistry between the H and h was sizzling right off the pages. I love when I can feel that when I’m reading.
“The physical connection between us is palpable. It breaths on its own. It has a life force neither of us can deny.”
When I first started reading this book it was almost like a RomCom, (which happens to be one of my favorite genres) and then BAM I was shocked at what took place after, but let’s just say we get to really see some deep seeded issues Teala has been hiding away, and Rachel writes it so well. I felt for Teala and I understood her pain but I also wanted to strangle her. We also really see Macs flaws too and his insecurities in handling it. He's this big strong character that can handle just about anything that life throws at him until this…which also had me wanted to reach into the book and shake him. This is when the book took me on a roller-coaster of emotions, it was so well done.
I’m so excited to get another “Real Seal” novel! Bravo Rachel for another awesome read!!
I highly recommend!

Now Live!! Mister Romance by: Leisa Rayven...Five star review!

Mister Romance (Masters of Love, #1) 

Max Riley is the man of your dreams. Or at least he will be, for a price.

 As his alter-ego Mister Romance, Max is a drop-dead gorgeous escort who makes romantic fantasies come to life. No sex, just swoon-worthy dates to die for, and the cream of New York's socialites can't get enough.  Whether they want a dominating billionaire, bad boy with a heart of gold, hot geek, sexy biker, or best friend who loves them from afar, Max can make it all happen, but he's careful to keep his real identity a secret.

Enter investigative journalist Eden Tate. Having caught wind of the urban legend of Mister Romance from a lovestruck client, Eden is determined to publish a scathing expose on Max and his ability to swindle lonely society women out of their fortunes.

Desperate to protect his anonymity and his clients, Max challenges Eden to give him three dates. If she doesn't fall in love with him, she can run her story with his blessing. If she succumbs to his charms, the story dies.

Cynical Eden has no doubt she can resist his fake romance personas, but when the real Max admits he’s falling for her, she has to decide if the professional liar is telling the truth, or if the passionate man with the mysterious past is just one more character designed to con her out of her career-making story.
Don’t miss this sizzling new standalone from the internationally best selling author of Bad Romeo, Broken Juliet, and Wicked Heart.

My review (ARC provided)
5 stars!

Leisa has written another winner. I have a handful of authors that every time I’ve read their books it’s a five star read and she is one of them. This book was so unique and just a breath of fresh air. Her humor is always a highlight in her writing and she doesn’t miss a beat with it in this book, also her ability to make you swoon over her hero’s is remarkable. Max was ahhhhh just perfect and every character he played was too, but Max himself was the best we got a little of each. Sigh…I love that she brought acting into this novel too.

As usual her secondary characters are just as likable and have me itching for a book about them.

So what can I say about this without ruining it too much?

Eden (h) loves men, loves sex, but isn’t interested in anything beyond that. She’s quite content bringing men home and never seeing them again. Her sister on the other hand is the polar opposite and wants it all, wants the fairy tale. She tries to convince Eden to take a leap and date and try to find something real.

“Don’t you ever want more? A partner. Lover. Friend. Protector. Cheerleader.”

“Of course I do. I just believe I need a man to complete me. I’m quite happy how I am.”

When Asha gives Eden a lead on a potential huge story for the website she writes for this maybe the break she looking for. Mister Romance, the mystery escort all of New York’s socialites and rich housewives are “secretly” talking about. He is discreet and hard to find but Eden is determined to track him down and write his story.

Max aka Mister Romance is very private and takes his clients and their privacy very seriously so when he finds out a reporter is after his clients names and his story he has to do everything to prevent it from happening.

Once they meet you can feel the chemistry between the two, it is scorching and every time you think something may happen it doesn’t. Leisa is master at a slow burn and keeping us on edge. 

Max needs to convince Eden that romance does exist and women deserve to have it. Eden is cynical and skeptical about it all and thinks it’s a bunch of crap. This is the toughest job Max has ever had, but he is determined to win Eden over.

“I get the feeling your cynicism is your security blanket in most situations.”

Fabulous read! I feel so very fortunate to have had the opportunity to read and review this. I’m looking forward to Leisa’s next one!

Cover reveal! All About The D by: Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam...Giveaway!

Title: All About the D
Authors: Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam
Genre: Standalone Romantic Comedy
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Model: Mitchell Wick
Photographer: Wong Sim
Release Date: May 2, 2017


A sexy new romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin and bestselling author Leslie McAdam…


I'm known for being formal. Meticulous. Professional. 

So you’d never suspect I spend my nights photographing my impressive junk for a NSFW blog. Don’t roll your eyes. I’m not bragging. I have millions of followers who’ll tell you they live for my posts. 

I’m like a superhero, saving humanity one dick pic at a time. 

Except leading a double life means I need someone to help me protect my anonymity, so that no one, especially my family, ever discovers my online celebrity. 

When I call one of the most respected law firms in town, I expect quality legal advice and confidentiality. Not a sinfully sexy attorney whose dangerous curves and soul-piercing gray eyes make me want to personally demonstrate my particular skill set. 

I shouldn’t be tempted. 

Especially when she knows all of my best-kept secrets. But everyone has a breaking point. And I’ve met mine.

Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves - even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it's Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She's unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement.

Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she's not in the writing cave you'll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.

Did you see Jessica Hawkins Cover Reveal!? Somebody Else's Sky

Photographer: Perrywinkle Photography
Cover Design © R.B.A. Designs
Cover Model: Chase Williams

Coming Monday, May 22nd: Somebody Else's Sky, book 2 in the Something in the Way Series...
If I closed my eyes, I could still see them—all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake’s gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany’s tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly.

A better man would’ve walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I’d keep enough distance. If I’d learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.
Lake was everything I wanted, and nothing I could ever have. I was nobody before I knew her and a criminal after. The way to love her was to let her shine—even if it would be for somebody else.

Lindsey's Review (copy provided)

4.5 stars!

This book hit me right in the heart! I love second chance romances and this one doesn't not disappoint.

Alexa is in a difficult situation, but what connected me to Alexa was her strength and willingness to recognize the signs and get herself out of her bad situation.

Maverick Rylan is everything I have come to expect from a Laura Kaye alpha male. Hard and soft, sweet and kind, strong and vulnerable all at the same time.

I love the relationship between Alexa and Maverick. It had that "I just can't seem to quite you" feel, but in the best way possible. What I enjoyed most about the relationship between Alexa and Maverick is the way they support each other in their decisions and yet at the same time they are not afraid to tell each what they really think or how they are really feeling.

The story flows easily with all the word magic that is the genius of Laura Kaye. I love getting to check back in the Raves, especially in the little moments where Haven and Dare appear.

This book was everything I was hoping for and more! If you have yet to meet the Raves, what are you waiting for?

EXCERPT FROM RIDE ROUGH: “What am I going to do? My entire life is wrapped up in him. My job. Where I live. My car. Where Mom lives. Everything. Oh, God. This is going to be a nightmare, isn’t it?” Maverick grasped Alexa’s hands. “One thing at a time. You’re out. You can stay here as long as you need to. I have plenty of room. I’ll help you through it. That’ll give you time to figure out what it is you want. There’s no rush.” “Okay,” she said. “Okay. God, thank you.” A shiver raced over her skin. “You don’t have to thank me. I’m so relieved for you that I might fall the fuck over,” he said, his thumb rubbing over her knuckles. She almost managed a little smile. “Your hands are like ice, Al. I shouldn’t have made you stand her all this time when you’re soaking wet.” Alexa shook her head. “It felt good to get it out, Maverick.” “Glad to hear it. Would a hot shower make you feel better? I can find you a T-shirt and a pair of boxers to change into while your clothes dry.” All the TLC and understanding he was giving her reached right inside her chest. When was the last time someone had taken care of her this way? The last time you were with Maverick. The truth of that thought made her breath catch. “Yeah. I’d like that,” she managed. He gave a tight nod and stepped back, and she missed his heat immediately. “Uh, good. That’s good. You remember your way around?” “Of course,” she said. How much time had she spent here over the years? Even before they dated? At one point, Maverick’s place had practically been a second home. “You okay?” he asked, watching her. She pushed off the door. “I don’t know yet,” she said, coming to him. “But what I do know is how grateful I am to you. For everything. For being there when I told you not to. For listening. For just . . . being you.” “Always.” He crossed his big arms and ducked his chin, like something about the exchange made him uncomfortable. “I mean it,” she said, and then she pressed onto tiptoes and kissed his cheek, his stubble tickling her lips. “You saved me tonight.” “No,” he said, eyes flashing, one brow arched. “You saved yourself, Al. I was just your getaway driver.” Staring into one another’s eyes, the tender moment stretched out, morphed, suddenly flashed hot. Being so close to him set her body on fire, and finally she could actually consider acting on it. Need roared through her, a living, breathing thing. “Maverick,” she whispered. “Fuck, Alexa, I think you better go take that shower,” he said, his jaw ticking. “Now.” She released a shaky breath and nodded. He was right. Of course, he was. So, showering. She could handle that. Afterward, God only knew what she was going to do.
