Gabriel's Redemption

The much anticipated novel, "Gabriel's Redemption," by Sylvain Reynard, has been finally released today!!

Description derived from Amazon.com:

From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Gabriel’s Rapture and Gabriel’s Inferno comes the epic conclusion to the captivating romantic trilogy.

Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he’s confident that they can face any challenge. And he’s eager to become a father.

But Julianne’s graduate program threatens Gabriel’s plans, as the pressures of being a student become all consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront Julianne about the subject of her presentation—research that conflicts with his own.

In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family.

Review for "Hell's Knights, (MC Sinners, #1), Heaven's Sinners, (MC Sinners, #2), & Knights Sinners, (MC Sinners, #3)," by Bella Jewel

Hell's Knights
Heaven's Sinners
Knights' Sinner (The MC Sinners Series, #3)


After reading "Withstanding Me," from Crystal Spears. I was searching for something as REAL & GROUND-BREAKING as the Breakneck Series! I was in dire need of reading the same type of characteristics as the men and especially the women Ms. Spears has created. STRONG-WILLED, BAD-ASS FIRECRACKERS, WHO DO NOT BACK DOWN FROM A CHALLENGE!!

I literally stumbled upon Bella Jewel's "Hell's Knights," the first novel within the "MC Sinners Series." I had just finished the FIRST 17 PAGES, and I was COMPLETELY HOOKED! The EXPLOSIVE COMBINATION the hero & heroine possessed was MIND-BLOWING! I AUTOMATICALLY purchased the remaining two novel, "Heaven's Sinners," and "Knights' Sinners." After reading the rest of the series, it WASN'T just the FIRST novel that POSSESSED this IMPULSIVE CHEMISTRY, it was all THREE!

I can HONESTLY state that I'm UNABLE to DECIPHER which novel is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! Therefore, YOU will SEE the SAME review for EACH BOOK!

Review for "Seize Me," by the Incredibly Talented Crystal Spears!

**Initially this review was written on November 3, 2013, however I NEVER had a chance to post it on my blog!**

Seize Me PNG


Crystal Spears' writing has ENSNARED ME and WON'T LET GO! It's RAW, EDGY, and NO-HOLDS-BAR ENTERTAINING! I've already purchased "Withstanding Me," before completing "Seize Me!"

I gifted "Seize Me," to a friend & she is also HOOKED! I think Ms. Spears is doing a PHENOMENAL JOB writing about what SHE knows, keep it up! Like she said, "LIFE ISN'T SUNSHINE & RAINBOWS! MS. SPEARS HAS HIT-THE-NAIL-ON-THE-HEAD W/THIS SERIES! I'm looking forward to see what's coming next! DEFINITELY WITHOUT-A-DOUBT THIS SERIES DESERVES 10 STARS!

Happy Release Day to Christina Lauren for "Beautiful Player!"

**Description derived from Christina Lauren's Official Website! To order any of their other novels just drop by their website for all the links!  http://www.christinalaurenbooks.com/**



In the third book in the Beautiful Bastard series, an agreement between a venture capitalist and a bookish woman quickly becomes a very NSFW version of My Fair Lady.
When Hanna “Ziggy” Bergstrom moves to New York City for graduate school, Will Sumner thinks his responsibilities to his best friend’s nerdy little sister will be limited to the occasional dinner and check-in. Little does he know that Ziggy is ready to break out of her bookworm academic shell and move more into bombshell territory. Of course she figures the gorgeous womanizing venture capitalist Will is the best person to help mentor her in this new field of study: dating.
Will takes on the challenge with more than a healthy dose of skepticism and humor, but soon finds that Ziggy just needed a tiny push, not a world of change, to reveal a woman every man seems to notice. Soon “Ziggy” is gone and the unfiltered, innocently seductive Hanna Bergstrom is hijacking his dreams, his moods, and even his orderly no-strings-attached dating life—beginning the night his mentoring activities move between the sheets

Sara Fawkes' "Anything He Wants," Books Were Miraculously Moved To A Display At My Local B&N!!

Ok, so maybe the Sara Fawkes' "Anything He Wants," books weren't actually "miraculously" moved. I was a kind of perturbed about the fact that the Barnes & Noble Display stated, that "If You Like, Fifty Shades. . .," yet I didn't see Ms. Fawkes' book. They were stacked on the shelf for NO ONE to see!! Therefore, since Sara's "AHW: Series," has been compared to E. L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey," I rearranged B&N's display.

I know I should've just went up to the manager and asked if he/she can provide me the reason why the novels were just placed, "on-the-shelf," but I kind of chickened out since, I already took matters into my own hands!! :D

Review for "Somebody's Lover," by Jasmine Haynes!


Once tragedy has struck a well-dynamically formed family, there's nothing left but blame, loneliness, desuetude, and despair for all that are involved, especially for a widow, and her children. However, to be able to obtain a slice of salvation, a ray of sunshine, to break free from the darkness, to be able to deal with the challenges of everyday life is one to be desired.

That's what Taylor is in dire need of, a man to make her feel as though she is the most desirable woman he has ever seen, even if it's just for a few hours. Nevertheless, she NEVER expecting that man to be her brother-in-law, Jace.

Once sparks fly between these two, they NEVER end. Craving each other's touch, as though no other, is the SWEETEST drug imaginable, and to be able to possess that is EXTREMELY inspiring. It's as though having lighting strike the same place twice, rare, and unobtainable at times, yet to possess it twice in one person's lifetime, is absolutely ASTONISHING!

I immensely ENJOYED this novel, at times it reminded me of Lorelei James, "Cowgirls Don't Cry," and "Cowgirl Up & Ride." Obviously very different scenarios, yet similar qualities, Ms. Haynes possessed the same finesse that Ms. James does with her storylines. Also having a multitude of SIZZLING, SCORCH THE PAGES, love scenes--too boot!

I've become an instant fan of Ms. Haynes, already purchasing the remainder books within this series! This novel was PHENOMENAL, it kept me GLUED to the pages, wondering if and when Taylor and Jace might or might NOT be discovered. What would the rest of the family think of their union?  Could Taylor and Jace forge a future together as Lou's death casts a shadow above them?

You're going to have to discover that on your own! I DON'T kiss & tell!  >;o)~~~
The reason this novel hit so close to home for me, is that my Nonna (Grandmother), married her brother-in-law after her sister passed away. She helped raise my Nonno's (Grandfather's) sons, her nephews, and eventually had more children with him (my mother being one of them). My Nonna fell madly, deeply, and irrevocably in LOVE with my Nonno, and he treated her like GOLD, everyday--for the rest of his life!  :**)

"Review for "Temporary Tricks," by Saranna DeWylde"

Temporary Tricks


The novels I tend to purchase are when men of power and money lose complete and utter control of their immensely tight reins. When a singular woman of intelligent wit, who can spar with the likes of them, never revealing  her true superiority of not being know as a common wallflower, to be casted aside. All the while, as she comes crashing down into that particular man's well-devised universe, and devastating everything he holds dear, his livelihood, and his heart.

Those are the novels I hold dear to my heart, as I do with this novel written by Ms. DeWylde. She has bewitched me her writing, it's absolutely OUTSTANDING! I'm intoxicated with the characters, and storylines she has created, with NOT just this novel, but also, "How to Lose a Demon in 10 Days!" I will DEFINITELY be purchasing MORE novels by her in the near future!

Review for "Hot Mess," by Mara Ryder!



My heart has been served onto a SILVER platter. Waiting for which ONE of these characters to STAB their forks & knives into my heart, and WITHDRAWAL the FIRST piece into their THIRST-HUNGRY mouths!

I'm being SWALLOWED-UP-WHOLE by this series! No wonder why Sara Fawkes recommended, "Beautiful Trash," the first of Scarlet Briar, this series is as GROUND-BREAKING as hers is! It possesses so MANY twists & turns that I'm CONFUSED on which direction is UP or DOWN! I feel as though I'm like Alice being PUSHED & FREE-FALLING without a cord DOWN the rabbit hole, where Cherie will STOP on this adventure NO one knows!

Just when you think it CANNOT get any worse or better for Cherie, you're mouth continues to remain OPEN awaiting to catch flies! I've literally SCREAMED, "WHAT & OMG," simultaneously at the TOP of my LUNGS, while my husband slept and terrifying him at the same time!


The novels listed below are just a few I've enjoyed IMMENSELY, for they are the ones that have GRIPPED my very SOUL within its vise, NEVER to be released!

Review for "Beautiful Trash," by Mara Ryder!


This novel came as a recommendation from Sara Fawkes' facebook page. Since she enjoyed it immensely, I decided to take her advice and purchase this book. Well it was NOT a disappointment at all! It left me completely FLABBERGASTED!

Unlike any novel I've read thus far, with such RAW, in-your-face REALITY, with enough GRIPPING and SHOCKING revelations, and above all, an EXTREMELY fast pace storyline. Leaving the reader to question everyone's TRUE motive!

Ms. Ryder has written a RARE JEM, and I'm exceedingly  PRAYING that there will be MORE to, Cherie Boddington's Story.

Review for "Never Too Far," by Abbi Glines!

"Just As Spectacular As The 1st If NOT Better!"

Just when you think NOTHING can top the 1st novel, you are literally KNOCKED-UPSIDE-THE-HEAD by the continuation of this STUPENDOUS STORY!

We discover Blaire is back home in Sumit, AL, trying to decide if she made the correct decision on leaving Rush, especially when he has finally made his UNDYING declaration of LOVE to her.

However, Blaire is DESPERATELY seeking answers, and unfortunately the ONLY person who can provide them is NO longer alive. When an unlikely turn of events occur, sometimes coming home might NOT be the correct path to take.

When returning to Rosemary Beach, FL, Blaire is HARBORING her own SECRET. If it is discovered to soon, and Blaire is unable to give a full explanation, will anyone, especially Rush believe her OR will they think the horrible lies that were initially spread around town by Rush's family to be TRUE?

Only time will tell, but I can guarantee you WON'T be DISAPPOINTED by what occurs NEXT!

It's been AWHILE since I came back to this rather STRANGE & TWISTED LOVE story between these two remarkably VAST individuals. Nevertheless, I'm in AWE of what they BOTH MUST overcome to forge ahead to wherever their future MIGHT lead!
I'm NOT a patient person; therefore, I DESPISE cliffhangers. However, I will wait until the FINAL novel is RELEASED within a series in which I ABSOLUTELY ADORE. Even though I INSTANTANEOUSLY purchased EACH, and EVERY single book within this OUTSTANDING series, that's literally the reason why I haven't come back to Blaire & Rush's storyline!

Review for "Castaway, #1 (Anything He Wants Series)," by Sara Fawkes

"Swept Away on Another Ravenous, Passionate, Elicited Adventure!"

 Lucy finds herself kidnapped by the ONE man she would NEVER imagine taking her, no other than, the NOTORIOUS ROGUE, gun-smuggler HIMSELF!

Yet this man is NOT as diabolical as Lucy previously perceived, he's a WOUNDED soul, who is trying to get ahead, instead of being SWALLOWED-UP-WHOLE by his MAJOR competitor--his YOUNGER brother to be EXACT!

When Lucy is faced with difficult decisions to decide, is it best to make a DEVIL'S bargain, or LOSE it all to CHANCE?

This series should be re-titled to 'ANYTHING THEY WISH!' I'm questioning my own allegiance between either Jeremiah or Lucas!

I was ONCE AGAIN taken away from all that EXISTS, until the very LAST word was read from this WONDROUS EROTICALLY ADDICTIVE novel! Yet again Ms. Fawkes did NOT disappoint!

The turn of events are definitely NOT what I had suspected! They were UNDOUBTEDLY MUCH MORE CATASTROPHICALLY DELICIOUS, than I could've HOPED for! Once again I was at the EDGE of my SEAT GASPING for MORE! WELL DONE MS. FAWKES NOTHING SHORT OF A 10 STAR RATING!!

Review for "Anything He Wants," by Sara Fawkes!

Not Your Normal Billionaire BDSM Love Story!

***Review is based on 75% completion of this novel. I didn't want to completely get carried away with "Castaway," the 2nd part of this ABSOLUTELY SPELLBINDING SERIES***

Exceedingly better than E. L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey Series", and just as intriguing as, Sylvia Day's "Crossfire Series."

Where "Fifty Shades of Grey," scenes were at times VERY lengthy, and a chapter or two could've been omitted. This undeniably fantastic story had me gasping constantly with the MANY shocking revelations regarding the Hamilton Empire, its subordinates, and TONS amount of espionage occurring simultaneously. Confusing the reading and of course the main characters (Lucy & Jeremiah), on who can be TRUSTED!

This novel did NOT cease with the astronomical action-packed adventure, mystery/suspense, and unadulterated escapades. Literally there wasn't EVER a dull moment!

Review for "Killer Kisses," by Chastity Bush

Beware of What Lurks in The Dark!

After being robbed in front of Tina James' adult establishment, "Happy," the last thing she wanted to do was give her statement to a bone-headed detective. Who's basically sizing her up to have a casual fling with, instead of taking her seriously of the travesty that recent occurred to her. After giving this detective a piece of her mind, she finds herself late at night on the dark & destitute streets of NYC, walking home with a serial killer on the lose---like the night couldn't get any worse.

Just then her knight-in-shining-armor arrives, well a drop "DEAD" gorgeous vampire on a shiny motorcycle arrives, to whisk her away to safety. However, is she safer on the streets with a lunatic roaming around  or on the bike of this mysterious man?

Once Alex Monroe sees this golden haired beauty, wearing a pair of high heeled boots, & knock-out body, he feels as though it's his duty as a respected man of the law, to make sure this angel is unscathed as soon as possible. What better way to guarantee that from happening is give her a lift to wherever she is headed. Only if he can convince Tina it's the best decision she should undoubtedly make.

Sparks immediately SINGE the pages with these two individuals. I was ENTHRALLED with this storyline, it was FAST PACE, & EXTREMELY DESCRIPTIVE. I IMMENSELY enjoyed that it possessed this INTENSE FIERY PASSION, NEVER ENDING ACTION & SUSPENSE, & above ALL MYSTERY. Everyone LOVES a GOOD MYSTERY!!  Ms. Bush has DEFINITELY delivered ALL of these aspects with this novel.

It's  been YEARS since I've read a paranormal romance (Adult or YA). This book was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!! PHENOMENAL JOB MS. BUSH, WITHOUT-A-DOUBT 10 STARS!!

A Quick Heads Up, Regarding My Recent Reviews!

Lately my reviews have NOT been fully descriptive, as my other reviews have been in the past. I apologize to the authors for that, but I haven't had the time in recent months to even think for myself, let alone write. Therefore, I have been writing my experience with a particular novel I've been reading at that percise moment. If for any reason you feel as though I'm not performing to the best to my ability, than that's your opinion! 'Cause technically isn't that what a review is generally about? YOUR OPINION!!

Life outside of her house was a new experience for Della Sloane. The dark secrets of her past weren’t something she ever intended to share with anyone. They would never understand. No one would ever get close enough to find out. There was always a chance she’d go crazy sooner than they expected…

Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.

What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.
The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…

Genevieve McInnes is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when Bowen Montgomery storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, Genevieve opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But Bowen’s rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress—something warm, wicked, and tempting. Bowen seizes his enemy’s keep, unprepared for the brooding and reclusive woman who captures his heart. He’s enchanted by her fierce determination, her unusual beauty, and her quiet, unfailing strength. But wooing her will take more than a seasoned seducer’s skill. For loving Genevieve, he discovers, means giving her back the freedom that was stolen from her—even if it means losing her forever.

Roxanne Stokes doesn’t believe in love. She does, however, believe in the sexy-as-sin stranger who literally knocks her off her feet in front of a nightclub. The chemistry sparking between them takes her breath away, and she’ll do anything to ease the pain in his eyes…until she realizes the handsome stranger is her best friend’s older brother who’s just come home from war.

Ian Walser had no idea the gorgeous woman he slept with the night of his homecoming party was his little sister’s best friend—or that she’d be gone before morning. Roxanne’s touch soothes him in a way nothing else can, and he’s not ready to walk away from that yet. Not when spending time with her gave Ian a glimpse of everything he’s ever wanted.

When his sister unwittingly pushes them together, he sees his chance. But convincing a woman who doesn’t believe in love that she’s his Mrs. Right might be harder than any mission Ian’s undertaken. Good thing this soldier likes a challenge…
