The Hustle by K.J. Bell ~New Reviews~


The Hustle (Irreparable, #4)The Hustle by K.J. Bell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

⭐️⭐️Do not read The Hustle if you have not read Tug⭐️⭐️

HOT DAMN!!!!! K. J. Bell blew my mind with The Hustle. For those of you who have been waiting for the continuation of Tug’s story I PROMISE, you will not be disappointed! This books was incredible!

K. J. Bell’s writing never ceases to amaze me — she’s always switching it up! I knew The Hustle was going to be fabulous but the storyline was so much more than I anticipated. Our loveable Tug is still trying to navigate through life after Maria. Enter Peyton… She seems to be the perfect distraction, but is she? Will Tug ever recover after being burned, will he ever be able to let go of Maria and get on with his life?

The Hustle was one of those, “What the hell did I jut read” books. I was on the edge of my seat wondering where the story would go. I couldn’t put it down! I felt empathy for the characters and each of their journeys, as we all make sacrifices for those we love. So many emotions were invoked reading this story. O. M. G. I am still trying to process one storyline! Ms. Bell knows she blew my mind as I did not see the story turning in this direction!

I’m a little sad to see Tug’s story come to an end but it has been a fabulous ride watching him grow from a goody kids into a strong, sexy man. The Hustle was the perfect end to this loveable character’s story, even if I am still mad at K. J. Bell 😉 Definitely angsty and sexy The Hustle should be your next read! Don’t miss out on this one!  Nic

Davetta’s  Review of The Hustle by KJ Bell

When I was first introduced to Tug in Irreparably Broken, I had such a soft spot for him. He was a pain in the rear, and what a smart mouth. But when he grew up to be a HOT successful business man and had a way with the ladies, well… I sure took notice. He really became this complex character and he was really just trying to find his way. I feel like he got the short end of the stick with his love choices. All I have ever wanted for Tug was to just get his own happiness. This guy is so deserving of it.

The Hustle is a story that I kept thinking it had reached a climax and it just kept going. So much was going on and I could not put it down. I kept waiting for the happy ever after and more stuff just kept happening. Just when I thought the book was going in the direction I wanted it to go…BAM! It changed its course and I was left feeling empty. Now what! Well Tug finally really starts to try to find his heart and what’s best for him. He still cannot let the good stuff in, but he sure is trying. And of course it takes a strong woman to rally in his corner to make that happen. Peyton was such a head strong woman but also so sensitive that she was not going to take Tugs crap or let him walk away. She was the perfect balance of what he needed. They are so sexy together and its nice to see him realize that he can have it all with all.There is nothing more I wanted to happen in this story but for it all to come together and Tug to have his happiness. Sad to see this story end but it was a fantastic read and had me the whole time on the edge of my seat. I will always have a soft spot for my TUG 🙂

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00036]


All of my demons are coming to head.
I thought Ari could push them back.
I thought I could conquer my vices with her at my side.

I thought wrong.

Fear is my new constant.
I thought I could conceal it, contain it, control it.
I thought that now that I had Grant the worst was over.

I thought wrong.

But if we’re going to survive, wherever you go…take me with you.


Take Me With You Teaser 1


Grant practically bounded across the room until he was directly in front of me. Then, his hands were cupping my cheeks so tenderly that it was as if he thought I might break in half. Without a word, his mouth dropped down on mine, and the kiss was as light as a feather. It was a question, a soft and delicate question, one he had never asked before—permission.

When I didn’t pull away from him, he received his answer. The kiss deepened, and he coaxed all the anger out of me. He drew it out as if sucking venom from an open wound. He kissed me so heatedly and lovingly that not even a drop remained. All that was left was a bottomless well of emotions of how much I loved and missed him.

When I came back into the moment, I heard the catcalls and yells from the people around us. It was then I remembered that we were in a crowded room, surrounded by people, and Grant had kissed the breath out of me. I flushed from head to toe at the attention, but he wouldn’t let me pull away.

“I’m sorry,” he whispered. “I shouldn’t have blown up on you. I shouldn’t have done anything. You’re all that matters.”

I stared up at him in confusion. “Who are you, and what have you done with Grant McDermott?”

He laughed that beautiful glorious laugh, and a smile lit up his whole face. It was that damn smile that had won me over in the first place.

“Run away with me,” he murmured.


“Run away with me. Let’s get out of here.”

“Where are we going?”

“Anywhere. Everywhere.”

BETTER WHEN HE’S BOLD by Jay Crownover~ Special Excerpt,Review and Giveaway

BWHB Review and excerpt tour bannerLadies! I can’t wait for you to get your hands on this book!!! Y’all know how much I love Jay Crownover boys but Race- there’s just something about this golden haired bad boy.

Be sure to check out my review and a special excerpt from Better When He’s Bold. Also enter the giveaway too. Welcome to the Point ladies.




From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover, comes the second book in a combustible new series, Welcome to the Point, that is sexier, darker, and better than ever.

There’s a difference between a bad boy and a boy who is bad. . . . Welcome to the Point.

In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has be fearless to control the streets and the ruthless people who run them. Race Hartman is just bold enough, just smart enough, and just lost enough to wear the crown. Places like The Point will always have bad things and bad people, but the man in control of all that badness can minimize the devastation. Race has a plan, but can he prevent total annihilation without destroying himself?

Brysen Carter has always seen the real Race—a guy too pretty, too smooth, and way too dangerous. Basking in his golden glow is very tempting, but Brysen knows she’ll eventually get burned. She has enough problems without the risky danger and mayhem that comes with a guy like Race. Too bad Brysen faces a threat close to home that might be more dangerous than anything The Point has ever produced.. And the only person interested in keeping her safe is the one man she can’t allow herself to have.

Sometimes being bold is the only way to stay alive. But can she let Race save her life . . . if it means losing herself to him?

BWHBold Teaser 1Excerpt

“I should go home.” My voice was strained to my own ears. I couldn’t have sounded less convincing if I tried.

“There are always other things we should be doing. Come back to my place with me, Brysen.”

It wasn’t a question, it was almost an order. It shouldn’t sound as hot as it did.

“I don’t really think that’s a great idea. Besides, we haven’t even touched on the fact that I do officially have a stalker.”

He took a step even closer and the finger he had used to rub my cheek he now used to push some of my hair back behind my ear. It was probably the most kind, most reverent touch I had felt from another person in my life. That it was coming from this complex and troubling man hit me in all of my warm and squishy places.

“You have a stalker until I can get my hands on him. And it might be a bad idea, but it’s a bad idea that is going to happen one way or another, so fighting it seems stupid and takes energy I can sure as hell put to better use. Let me take care of you for one night, Brysen. I promise you won’t regret it.”

Of course I wouldn’t regret it. I wanted him, was entrapped by him, and after I ate it all up, took everything he had to give, lived in the pleasure and passion he broke loose inside of me, it would for sure kill me to know I would never be able to have it again. I blew out a breath, lifted a hand to wrap around his thick wrist, and fully intended to tell him no, that it just wasn’t worth the impending heartache, but what came out of mouth was:

“I don’t know what to do with you, Race.”

His warm hand slid under the fall of my hair at the back of my neck and his head lowered toward mine. His mouth hovered right over mine and my lips parted in their own invitation.

“Yes, you do.”

When he kissed me, my mind was made up. I wanted this—wanted him—and I hadn’t had anything just for myself in far too long. I knew it was bound to lead to really bad things, but on the way there I really, really wanted to enjoy everything that came with him. Including the way he pulled me close. The way he slid his hands down over the curve of my ass. The way his tongue lured mine out to play, and maybe mostly the way he made everything else that was always hounding me fade away. With his mouth on mine, with his hands roving over me, there was no crumbling home life, there was no failed math class there was no lurking and unidentified threat … all I could feel was heat, burning, desire, and desperation. It was such a welcome reprieve that there was no way I could tell him no.

He took a step back and squeezed the back of my neck. I was breathless and his eyes had shifted to that sexy, deep, opaque forest green.

“I can’t offer you anything fancy. You’ve been on my mind and under my skin for a minute now, but I promise that I’ll make it worth your while.”

I breathed out a sigh and took the hand he offered me.

“You already have, Race.”

He flashed that dimple at me again and inclined his head toward the mouth of the alley.

“Where did you park?”

“Around the corner.” He gave me a look that indicated I would be lucky to find the BMW in one piece once we reached it.


Better when Jay Crownover writes books.
Every time a read a book by Jay Crownover, i say it’s her best. Truth be told the girl can write. Better When He’s Bold was just as captivating, just as raw, just as real as all of her other stories.
What makes her stories so good? Her characters– they are people you could very well meet on the street, at the store, wherever. You have already crossed paths with people that are the real life versions of her characters. 
Race was no different. A trust fund boy that got caught up in a lifestyle. Cocky, obnoxious, invincibility complex, loyal, protective, scared and when he loves he loves with all he’s got.
One thing that is common in all of her stories and that I absolutely love reading is the female characters are incredibly resilient, independent, strong and proud. But these women are also incredibly giving and can bring a man to his knees. Brysen is a fabulous example of this. She was sassy, fun and her confidence is what created the chemistry between her and Race.
I enjoy reading Crownover’s stories because she isn’t afraid to write something real and intense. She doesn’t ‘Disneyfy’ her stories. While her stories have happy endings they are real endings. And that makes for a viable and realistic story that you can absolutely escape and pour yourself into after the daily grind of life.
Another fabulous characteristic of Crownover’s stories is that the story is not inherently written around the love between characters, rather the love between characters is inherently written around the story. This makes for a full story line that is well developed and captures and draws in the reader.
If you haven’t gone to the Point yet, get on it. Read Better When He’s Bad first and then meet Race in Better When He’s Bold. You won’t be disappointed.
D 5/5

Beautiful Redemption by Jamie McGuire ~New Release~

We’re celebrating the release of BEAUTIFUL REDEMPTION by Jamie McGuire!
Title: Beautiful Redemption
Author: Jamie McGuire
Release date: January 26, 2014
iTunes | Kobo | BN

If A Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever. But what if he didn’t love you, first?

No-nonsense Liis Lindy is an agent of the FBI. Deciding she is married only to her job, she breaks off her engagement and transfers from Chicago to the field office in San Diego. She loves her desk. She is committed to her laptop. She dreams of promotions and shaking hands with the director after cracking an impossible case.

Special Agent in Charge Thomas Maddox is arrogant, unforgiving, and ruthless. He is tasked with putting away some of the world’s toughest criminals, and he is one of the best the Bureau has to offer. Though, as many lives as he’s saved, there is one that is beyond his reach. Younger brother Travis is faced with prison time for his involvement in a basement fire that killed dozens of college students, and the media want a conviction. Travis’s only savior is his unusual tie to the mob. In a deal that will spare his brother, Thomas has agreed to recruit Travis into the FBI.

Liis is stubborn, defiant, and yet somehow softens Thomas’s rough edges, making her the perfect agent to accompany him to the ceremony. Posing as a couple, they must travel to Travis & Abby’s beach vow renewal and give him the news, but when the pretending ends, she finds herself wondering if they were pretending at all.

In the second installment of the Maddox Brothers books, experience firsthand the mysterious world of the elusive Thomas Maddox, and how good love can be when you’re not the first, but the last.



“Me, too. I’m … Thomas, by the way,” he said softly. He rolled over and relaxed beside me, his head propped by his hand. Instead of getting dressed, he looked as if he were ready for conversation.

I pressed my lips together. “I’m,” Do it. Do it or you’ll just be kicking yourself later. “…emotionally unavailable.”


“I live in Midtown,” I said, wondering if I would see my neighbor again.

She grinned. “Me, too. A lot of us do. We can drown your sorrows together.”

“I don’t have sorrows. Just memories. They’ll go away on their own.”


He narrowed his eyes. “Are you insubordinate, Agent Lindy? Is that why you were sent here, to be under my command?”

“You requested me, remember?”

“I didn’t request you. I requested the best language expert we had.”

“That would be me, sir.”

#TripleX by Christine Zolendz & Angelisa Stone~ Review

23665927#TripleX by Christine Zolendz

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Want to read something light and fun? Then #TripleX is the book for you. Co-written by two fabulous authors, individually, I’m always a little wary of how 2 different writers will be able to meld their styles together to create a story without seams. Stone and Zolendz (It’s alphabetical ladies, so don’t get your panties in a bunch- these two will compete over the smallest things let me tell you). Yes, you two, Stone and Zolendz or Zolendz and Stone. Sheesh.
Back to my review…
So these two authors created a story that had me in fits of giggles. If you have bladder issues, you might want to pull out the Depends or sit on a towel. Albeit fictional, this story hit on some real issues that many of us as women could more than relate to, many of us I’m sure are living it.
While this story wasn’t about the book boys, the two that were in it, made me smile and put what the two main characters were dealing with in perspective. Love both Matt and Jake. Yes Angelisa, it seems I have a book crush on your book husband again. I could take out an ad if you want me to declaring my devotion or maybe we could simply work out a schedule. Yay for sister wives!
The story was full of fun antics but it wasn’t over the top that I lost sight of the heart of the story. The epic road trip that this story is set on, is one that is probably on many of our bucket lists.
I thoroughly enjoyed the real message brought to life in this comedic story.
If you want fun, light chick lit, then you’ve got to add this one to your list. Sit back with some M & M’s and a cupcake or two, red velvet is my fave, and read a tale of womanhood, acceptance, perseverance, and friendship.
Yes, Angelisa I happen to love red velvet. Get over it already. Christine, I’m not sure how you managed a 3 month road trip with this one. Let me give you a star and a medal. 😉
Loves ya both. D 4/5

Hollywood and Vine by Olivia Evans~ Review

23589051Hollywood & Vine by Olivia Evans

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved this book!!! I haven’t read a book with a jerky alpha male in a long time that made me absolutely love his character.
Olivia Evans provided the perfect setting for the character of Anders Ellis. A spoiled, arrogant, obnoxious actor.
What balanced Anders’ character was the fact that the female m/c was feisty and in no way a pushover.
Right from the beginning of the story, Evans reeled me. The chemistry between characters was so dynamic. There wasn’t a single moment i didn’t believe the characters.
The entire book had me wanting to throw my reader and watch Hallmark movies at the same time. I don’t think I’ve ever read a story where the characters had me doing that the entire read. Awesomesauce! And I absolutely loved that I hated the characters one minute and hated that I loved them the next.
The story was well thought out and the turn of events was viable and angsty just enough that my heart could feel it. i also liked that while the story was tied up in a neat little bow by the end, it wasn’t too “Disney” of an ending. In other words, I didn’t feel this huge let down from the climax of the story. There were still enough questions to allow me to envision my own epilogue but not so much that the story was left with too many unanswered questions.
Anders is definitely book boyfriend worthy and Olivia Evans is definitely worth fangirling over.
This was Olivia Evans debut novel. I can’t wait to read more from her.

UNFORGETTABLE SUN by Kathryn Andrews~ Cover

I am so excited about this instalment. If you haven’t met the Hale Brothers you need to ASAP!!!



Matt Hale

I’ve never really been included. I’ve never felt like I truly belonged. But then again, how could I? Living on this island, I’ve seen and heard too many things. Lies. Secrets.

“Lies I’ve been forced to tell and secrets I’ve been forced to keep. They keep me locked to myself.”

They’re the reason I stand on the edge of the horizon and watch from afar. Other people’s lives have evolved, but not mine. It’s exactly the same. Day after day, the sun rises, and every time its rays penetrate my skin, I’m reminded that no matter how desperately I don’t want to be, I’m trapped. I want to live. I want to breathe. I just want to be . . . free.

Elle Summers

If I had my way, I would have walked off the catwalk and straight out of the public eye years ago. Never-ending contracts and obligations have kept me prisoner until recently.

“Now it is fear that has me trapped and running from my life.”

I’m now hiding in a tiny beach cottage in my mother’s hometown, praying no one will find me. No one understands. The demands, lack of control, threats . . . I just want it all gone. I want to escape. When do I finally get to be me? Free.

Buy the first 2 book of the series…
