Letting Go (The Garage series #1) by Holly Renee


When Kat was forced to leave the only home she had ever known due to her brother's secrets, she wasn't prepared for what was waiting for her in Tennessee or the choices it would force her to make.

Kat instantly knew she didn't like Blake Reagan. He was cocky, stubborn, and infuriating. What Kat didn't understand was why she couldn't stop thinking about him or the way he made her feel.

The last thing Blake expected was for Kat Archer to storm into his world and turn it upside down. He thought he had her pegged from the beginning, but she destroyed everything he thought he knew. Blake was willing to fight to push his way into Kat's heart, but she put up a wall at every turn as she clung to her past.

If she stayed, she'd risk the only family she had left. If she left, she'd lose Blake and every piece of her heart that he'd managed to steal.

I received a ARC from the author in exchange for a honest review.
5* review.
It is very unusual for me to give a book by a debut author 5*s because i usual feel debut authors are still rough and i can never give a high mark but Holly blew me away with this story and it was well deserving of 5*s. Even better is that even though this is a standalone it is part of a series so i get to see more of those sexy garage boys.
Blake is my perfect male  lead, hes cocky arrogant sexy and has this alpha side that makes you swoon. Kat was perfect for him and i loved their relationship and how it grew throughout. Kat moves to stay with her Uncle after her brother gets in with the wrong crowd and that's how she meets Blake although he was a bit more undressed on their first meeting.
A book full of drama, love, and some sexy men working in a garage, what more does a girl need. I can't wait for this author's next book.

Breaking Ryann (Bad Boy Reformed #3) by Alyssa Rae Taylor

He promised to leave me alone, but that was a lie. I should have known he’d have this pull on me—seeping through my skin and into my bones, burning me from the outside in. It’s just like when we were kids, and I can no longer avoid him. I’ve accepted it, but what will it take to convince him that I am no longer his? Is that really what I want?
I told her I’d leave her alone. But who was I kidding? I’ve never been one to back away from a challenge. He stole my girl—my future—from me. I’m coming back with a vengeance. I’m taking back what he took from me. After all the secrets and lies, can we come back from this? Even if it breaks me, I’ll stop at nothing to protect what’s always been mine.

5* read.

I've really enjoyed this series of books and the way the characters have grew throughout. You do need to read the other books first and if you have you know we were left with a massive cliffhanger and i think everyone's been on the edge of the seat waiting for this conclusion. I don't want to give to much away but this book was a great ending to a amazing series and Luke and Reese have had me gripped since book one. As a reader the author pulled me in and took me on a journey throughout these books with the characters and made me fall in love with them.
I can't wait to read more from this author in the future.

August (Calendar Girl, #8) by Audrey Carlan

Pretending. I’ve always been good at pretending.
Being someone else is easy, and that ability has served me well these last seven months.
This time, I’ve been hired to be the long lost sister of oil tycoon, and down to earth cowboy, Maxwell Cunningham. Recently, Maxwell’s father passed away and in his last Will and Testament he dropped a bomb no one saw coming.
One of the richest men in the world, left forty-nine percent of his company to a sister my client never knew he had. A woman named Mia Saunders.
Maxwell has a year to find this sister or he loses almost half of his empire to a greedy board of investors. Somehow, he found me and here I am.
Sharing in family dinners, pretending to be someone I’m not and fooling bigwigs left and right. Only I’m finding myself falling in love with a family I can never have. One that will hurt to leave.
Stetsons, soul-searching, and sisterly duty all come into a sharp tangle with twists and turns I never saw coming.
In the eighth book of the Calendar Girl serial, Mia is sent to Dallas, Texas. Still on her mission to save her father, she is hired to be the long lost sister of Maxwell Cunningham, one of the newly richest men in America.
Each installment in the Calendar Girl Serial will release every month throughout 2015. The stories will feature Mia’s journey as an escort to twelve clients in twelve different locations.
Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language and graphic sexual content.

I received a ARC from the author in exchange for a honest review.
4* read.
I'm really enjoying Audrey's writing style and her Calender Girl series. Every month you learn more and fall in love with her writing style even more. I usually hate serial novellas like this and refuse to buy them but with this series you are kept hooked and looking forward to the next stage in the story. I liked August because you got to learn more about Mia's family and in fact i think its been my favorite book so far. You go on a journey with Mia through every book and are always left anticipating the next one and looking forward to seeing where her journey goes next.
I can't wait for the next monthly installment to see where else Mia and her story leads.

Degrade by T.L. Smith

One rule, only one rule women need to follow when they're with me.
Don’t ask for more.
This rule is in place for a reason, you won't get more of what’s not there to give.

He is striking, and he's all man. He is also the devil, or so I believe him to be. I gave him my heart, not realizing I was doing so.He likes to break me down, so I'm a shell of the person I once was. He's chipping away at me, bit by bit. Though I’m not as weak as he thinks, and when I can’t handle it anymore, I will come back swinging.

I received a ARC from the author in exchange for a honest review.
3.5* read.
This is a difficult review for me to write as although i started to enjoy it after about the first 45% the first half i didn't enjoy at all, mainly because i couldn't connect with the characters. I hated Zeke so much, he was everything i hate in a male lead in my books. The title of the book certainly fits with him as that's what he did, he degraded her till it got to the point i didn't want to read anymore. As for Bexley well she was such a push over that i couldn't connect with her either. I like my female lead to be strong and feisty and she was just a doormat. That been said I'm so glad i stuck with it as after the first half i really enjoyed it and connected with the characters more and i realized that the first half of the book had to happen like that for the rest of the story to go the way it did but in a way i just could't get past it.
Like i say I'm still mixed up and up in the air with this book but i'll defiantly purchase more from this author in the future.



I’m an idiot, I know this. I just can’t help myself. When it comes to him, I do as he says, do as he pleases. Even if it’s against everything, I believe in. He has a hold on me, which no other person has ever held. I don’t believe he loves me, but I love him. So that has to count for something? Right? My love is big enough. I believe it can hold onto both of us and wrap us up in a vice grip. See, I did tell you, I’m an idiot.

Hot as Hale (Hale #3) by Marie James

Innocent Joselyne Bennett loves her quiet life. As an elementary teacher her days include teaching kids then going home to research fun science projects to add to her lesson plan. Her only excitement is living vicariously through her sister Lorali and friend Alexa Warner.
Incredibly gorgeous police detective Kaleb Perez was going through the motions of life. His position on the force as a narcotics detective forced him to cross paths with Josie after a shooting involving her friend.
On more than one occasion Kaleb discretely tried to catch Josie’s eye. On every occasion he was ignored but when her hand is forced after a break-in at her apartment Josie and Kaleb are on a collision course with each other. Formerly timid Josie is coaxed out of her shell by the sexy-as-sin Kaleb who nurtures her inner sex-kitten in the most seductive ways, and replaces her inexperience with passionate need.
The small group has overcome so much in such a short period of time and just when they think they can settle back into their lives they are forced back into the unknown. Can Kaleb protect Josie from further tragedy? Can she let him go once the threat of danger is gone?
This is a standalone contemporary novel. The next book in the Hale Series: To Hale and Back is the conclusion of the series and in the point of view of all six characters.
Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content.


#1 Coming to Hale

#2 Begging for Hale

How long do you think you can hold out, Mariposa?” I’m teasing her now, no way I’ll attempt to touch her again since she’s told me no.
She shrugs her shoulder and gives me a sly smile. “Can I hold you tonight?” I ask again, switching gears away from my desire to have her sit on my face.
Please.” She answers.
I hold my hand out to her as I stand and grab her clothes off of the table. I tug her towards my bedroom, turning off lights as we go. I can hear Mia making her way behind us, knowing she will settle down again on her bed in the corner of my room for the night.
I didn’t pack sleep clothes,” I inform Josie as we step into my room. “I guess you’ll just have to sleep naked.”
She steps away from me and just as I think she’s about to protest, she reaches behind her, lowers the zipper on her skirt, and lets it fall to the ground. She’s facing the bed and the sight of her beautiful back, narrow hips, and smooth legs make me groan.
When she bends over to pick her skirt up off the floor my cock jumps in my pants. Instinctively my hand reaches down and grips it. “That’s fine.” She replies as she walks her skirt to me and drops it on top of her other clothing in my hand.
I growl at her, drop her clothes on the dresser, and pull out a t-shirt. A very large t-shirt. One that ensures nothing will be peeking out once she has it on. “On second thought,” I say as I hand it over to her. She giggles and pulls it on over her head. It almost hits her at her knees. Much better.
She saunters back in front of me and reaches for the buttons on my shirt. “Josie.” I admonish mildly.
Shhh, Kaleb. I heard what you said earlier.” She reaches up on her tip toes and kisses my chin. “You’re overdressed.”
I stand stock still and let her unbutton my shirt. She runs her tiny, warm hands up my stomach and over my pecs, causing my muscles to bunch. I’m thick and hard as steel in my pants, and there’s no sense in even trying to hide it. She knows I want her.
