Dispatches from the Kabul Cafe by Heidi Kingstone ~NEW REVIEW~

Where can you buy 913 Kalashnikovs? How do you tell a friend her expat love is never coming back? What’s it like to date a mercenary? 

In 2007, Canadian journalist Heidi Kingstone arrived in Kabul, eager to uncover the mysteries and shadows of one turbulent corner of the world. Over the next four years, she encountered idealists and chancers, gunrunners and warlords. She interviewed generals and partied with powerbrokers and fashionistas. A passionate advocate for women’s rights, she witnessed women as heroes, as victims, as freeloaders, as rivals. 

Heidi’s account of the last years of ISAF-controlled Kabul is vividly atmospheric, deeply personal and at times shockingly painful. From air bases to brothels, she tells of disastrous development programs and hopeful couplings against the backdrop of our longest war. But as her friends fall victim to ambush, kidnap and suicide bombing, no amount of booze and adrenalin can soften the devastating realities of NATO’s new Afghanistan.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I haven’t been able to read a book in months. I started Dispatches from the Kabul Cafe in hopes that it would help with my research on Kabul… It didn’t help as much as I had hoped but, it was a brilliant read. Thank you, Heidi Kingston, for sharing your incredible experience. I couldn’t put this book down.

If you are like me and read a lot from the romance genre, and are maybe looking for something to cleanse your reading palette, Ms. Kingstone’s memoir of her time in Kabul is an absolutely brilliant read.

Crazy Over You by Daisy Prescott ~NEW REVIEW~

Crazy Over You

Release Date: March 28, 2017

Crazy Over You is a standalone romantic comedy and the second book in the Love with Altitude series. 

My savior isn’t prince charming.
I’m not that lucky.
He’s my worst nightmare.
He’s my one-night stand from two years ago.
And he doesn’t remember me.

What happens on vacation doesn’t always stay on vacation. Especially in a place like Aspen. I moved to the mountains for my dream job. I never expected to run into the man of my dreams. Again.

I never thought I’d see her again.
My Cinderella didn’t leave me a shoe to find her.
Not that I’d need random footwear to recognize her.
Her kiss is something I’ll never forget.

Work hard. Play hard. I’m paid to be a nice guy on the slopes, but what I do in my off time isn’t always about making good choices. That’s the fun of living in a ski town. I stay while the women come and go.

Be sure to check out Next to You, the first Love with Altitude novel in this series of interconnected standalones!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t remember the last time I devoured a book in one sitting, but I couldn’t put Crazy Over You down. Thank you, Daisy Prescott, for Jesse and Mara’s story.

I have been in a reading slump for the last 4 month. Every book I start, I end up shelving… Nothing was cutting it for me. Crazy Over You was exactly the kind of story I needed to read. The writing is witty and endearing, and the characters are fun and loveable. Every thing about this story had me wanting more. I can’t forget to mention that this book is chock-full of sexual tension, the kind that had butterflies fluttering around my tummy… These are my favourite kind of stories to read.

Jill Shalvis has been one of my go to authors for years because her books are fun and sexy and now Daisy Prescott has now been added to my go-to list. I can’t wait for more books from the Love with Altitude series.

If you are looking for a light read full of witty characters, a story to make your pulse race and fill your heart – look no further! Crazy Over You is definitely a book you need to read.

New Review ~ Filthy Rich (Blackstone Dynasty 1) by Raine Miller

518pw19brnl

RELEASE DATE: November 15, 2016

Billionaire Caleb Blackstone lives in the glamorous world of wealth and success, with every material luxury. But the moment he sees Brooke Casterley, none of that matters. Caleb is filled with a raw, undeniable need that he can’t ignore…for a girl who is so completely different from everything and everyone he’s ever known.

Only Brooke isn’t looking for love. She knows all too well just how much damage the wrong guy can do. Still, what sane, broke British girl can resist the charms of an incredibly sexy, chivalrous billionaire? What starts as flirtation quickly turns into all-consuming passion. Nothing could have prepared her for the searing heat of Caleb’s touch—or just how much she craves him.

Their whirlwind romance is the stuff of high-society fantasy—but for every moment of pleasure, there is a cost. Past mistakes and tragedy shadow them both…and falling for him might be the kind of trouble she can’t afford.

Filthy Rich by Raine Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

HOT DAMN, Raine Miller! I couldn’t put this book down! What is it about these Blackstone men… Oooooh, Caleb Blackstone! This was exactly the book I needed… Not over the top, just wonderfully romantic and sexy as hell.

Filthy Rich (Blackstone Dynasty 1) is a perfect example of why Raine Miller is one of my go-to authors; fabulous writing with strong, genuine characters who are a joy to read about.

Raine Miller knows what the ladies want in an alpha male. And once again, she has delivered! Ladies, prepare yourself to swoon over the delicious Caleb Blackstone – another gorgeous Blackstone man who will leave your heart pounding. Strong and sexy, this gorgeous man knows what he wants and isn’t taking no for an answer.

When it comes to female characters, Brooke Casterley is a personality I think most of us can relate to. Not helpless or overbearing, she won’t be easily swayed by money or power when it comes to looking out for those she loves. I love the female characters Ms. Miller writes

Filthy Rich is fabulous swoony story that will give you the feels… the endearing feels, and the “Oh my” sexy feels. The characters in Filthy Rich are wonderful—some I absolutely loved, while others I wanted to push-off a cliff 😉

If you are looking for a sexy page turner with fab characters this is definitely the book for you!

ABOUT IT ENDS WITH US:

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all-too-human characters, It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

It Ends with UsIt Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am still trying to process my emotions after reading, It Ends With Us a few months ago. Definitely a 5+++ read!

*WARNING – By choosing to read It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover you will embark on an incredibly touching, and emotional journey. You will laugh…You will cry…And you WILL be blown away by absolutely brilliant writing. Make sure you have tissues, vodka and chocolate ready to help ease your emotions. Happy Reading!

Colleen Hoover amazes me with every story she tells, but something about It Ends With Us is different. I knew within the first few pages, this book would not be put down until the very last page had been turned… I also knew that this was a story that would probably bury its self deep in my heart.

Colleen Hoover always fills her stories with well-developed, fabulous characters we can’t help but fall in love with. Lily’s strength and determination made her real and relatable, a lovely character. Then there is Ryle… Well, I can’t really say anything about Ryle without possibly spoiling the story, so I’ll just go with WOW! Alyssa and Marshall are adorable — one word comes to mind when I think of Marshall, “onsie” 😉 . Now, there are some book characters who are forever ingrained in our minds after we meet them, and although I loved every single brilliantly written character in this story, one character stood out for me and I don’t think I will ever be able to forget him…Atlas. I can’t wait for you to meet Atlas. My heart melts when I think of this character and I’m sure yours will too.

So much of It Ends With Us tugged at my heart and honestly, I feared this book would utterly destroy me. Not gonna lie, I cried reading this one. I cried heart-broken tears and I cried happy tears. But I wasn’t destroyed…I was enlightened. Within the pages of It Ends With Us there is a lesson. There will be readers who can relate to this lesson and there will be readers who may know someone who, can relate to this lesson. But I really do feel like, It Ends With Us is more than just a fictional romance. Just keep swimming has such a deeper meaning for me now.

It Ends With Us is an incredible read, one of my favourites from Colleen Hoover. Definitely a book I highly recommend. Nic

*Make sure to read the Note From the Author at the end of the story, but PLEASE, make sure you read it at the end. Do not jump a head.

Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis (Book 3 – Cedar Ridge Series) ~Nic’s Reivew~

51ul7GHBfPL._SX307_BO1,204,203,200_
From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis…

SOMETIMES YOU CAN GO HOME AGAIN . . . 
After an overseas mission goes wrong, Army Special Forces officer Jacob Kincaid knows where he must go to make things right: back home to the tiny town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. All he needs to scrub away his painful past is fresh mountain air, a lakeside cabin, and quiet solitude. But what he discovers is a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock.

Sophie Marren has nowhere else to go. She’s broke, intermittently seasick, and fighting a serious attraction to the brooding, dishy, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy who’s now claiming her dock. Something about Jacob’s dark intensity makes her want to tease-and tempt-him beyond measure. Neither one wants to give any ground . . . until they realize the only true home they have is with each other.

~REVIEW~

Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I am looking for a sexy, funny read, Jill Shalvis is my one of my favourite go-to authors! Always packed with brilliant characters and wonderful stories, Nobody But You is another wonderful read from Ms. Shalvis.

Nobody But You had my attention from the very beginning. As always, the characters in Jill Shalvis’ books feel very much real people, not over the top. Sophie Marren is hilarious, and Jacob Kincaid would be your next book boyfriend except that he’s all mine. 😉 Their stories are touching and I fell for both of these sweet characters. Once you add in Sophie’s ex-husband and the rest of the Kincaid clan, you have the perfect recipe for a non-stop night of reading 🙂

Nobody But You will tuck itself into your heart with its moving storyline, but it will also have you snorting with laughter. I must also say that this is one of the hottest books by Jill Shalvis, that I have ever read! WOW! She knows how to write sexy but this story is UBER HOT!

I love that it doesn’t matter if I haven’t read all of the books in a Jill Shalvis series, I can read them as standalones and go back and read the others when I have time… And I ALWAYS want to read Ms. Shalvis books!

If you are looking for a book to completely lose yourself in, but something that isn’t over the top with emotions, I recommend reading Nobody But You. Fabulous characters, a sweet, sexy and funny story that will leave your heart feeling full <3

Left Drowning by Jessica Park ~Nic’s Review~

51I6gYsKaUL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

What does it take to rise from life’s depths, swim against the current, and breathe?

Weighted down by the loss of her parents, Blythe McGuire struggles to keep her head above water as she trudges through her last year at Matthews College. Then a chance meeting sends Blythe crashing into something she doesn’t expect—an undeniable attraction to a dark-haired senior named Chris Shepherd, whose past may be even more complicated than her own. As their relationship deepens, Chris pulls Blythe out of the stupor she’s been in since the night a fire took half her family. She begins to heal, and even, haltingly, to love this guy who helps her find new paths to pleasure and self-discovery. But as Blythe moves into calmer waters, she realizes Chris is the one still strangled by his family’s traumatic history. As dark currents threaten to pull him under, Blythe may be the only person who can keep him from drowning.

*This book is intended for mature audiences due to strong language and sexual content.
Note: due to mature content recommended for Ages 17+

Left Drowning by Jessica Park
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Huge book hangover! Not sure I’m ready to let go of this story or its characters yet. Thank goodness there is a book 2!!!!

Highly recommend this gorgeous, sexy story… Oh the feels
I have been trying to write a review for Left Drowning for weeks so here goes… I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I started, Left Drowning. It started off feeling too emotionally heavy for my liking but I’m glad I kept reading because it has become one of my favourite stories ever.

Definitely not the read for you if you are looking for something fluffy, filled with hearts and flowers but, if you are looking for a moving story with beautifully written characters that will consume you… this is the story for you. Lots of emotional lows and beautiful highs, and a few O.M.G. moments! Oh, and some sexy passion!

I don’t want to spoil anything about this book as I really think everyone should read it. So I’m just going to end this review by saying that Blythe, Chris and the rest of the Shepherd gang will bury themselves deep in your heart because once you know their stories, you will never forget them.

Until I Met You by S.L. Scott ~ Nic’s Review~

5151kGvkUqL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

From New York Times Bestselling Author, S. L. Scott, comes this brand new stand-alone romance. 

Their love burned bright, white hot, and strikingly blue around the edges. 

Some thought them careless. 

Some thought them crazy. 

No one approved. 

Taylor Barrett was looking for answers in a universe that had abandoned him. 

Jude Boehler flooded her dark world with charisma and mystery, drawing everyone into her hurricane. 

It was a most captivating of love affairs. They were shooting stars, meteors in the sky, colliding to create a spectacularly wonderful reckless romance, leaving them breathless and tethered. 

Their souls were exposed to the chaos, bare and vulnerable. Can these two star-crossed lovers survive the madness that is life?

~REVIEW~

Until I Met You by S.L. Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5+ Absolutley beautiful stars! This book…#AllTheFeels

This is one of those books that surprises the hell out of you. I love S.L. Scott’s books so I was pretty confident I would enjoy Until I Met You, but she absolutely blew my mind with this story! Definitely a love story of epic proportion. One that kept me up until the wee hours of the morning, and that hasn’t happened a lot lately 🙂

I don’t even know where to begin with this review. Right from the first few pages, I couldn’t put Until I Met you down, Ms. Scott has a beautiful writing style. But I honestly had no idea what a ride this story was about to take me on. Until I Met You had such a unique feel to it; one minute I was in present day and the next I was back in the turn of the century, all of this fitting perfectly into the flow of the story.

But this story is anything but another sweet and romantic love story! There are moments that left me with my heart in my throat and tears running down my cheeks. And I loved every single moment.
Jude and Taylor’s stories were unlike anything I would have expected! Love it when a story surprises me!

I highly recommend Until I Met You by S.L. Scott. If you are looking for a story you won’t want to put down, this fabulous read and its beautiful characters are exactly what you are looking for.

**This was one of our Flirty and Dirty Book Club group reads and all those who read Until I Met You were raving about Blythe and Taylor’s story. 😉

Love, Chloe by Alessandra Torre ~Brittany’s New Review~

Love, Chloe by Alessandra Torre
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve been a fan of Alessandra Torre since I first picked up Sex Love Repeat and gobbled it down like I hadn’t read a great book ever in my life. The characters were rich and complex, and the writing style had a flow like none I had ever read before. It made me an instant fan so I quickly grabbed every book she had written up to that point. Now if you’ve read her books before, you know she’s the queen of the twist. Torre has this uncanny knack for writing a plot twist that knocks you straight on your ass.

What I have loved though is that with her last two books she’s started down this fun flirty road that I am in total love with. They’ve been funny and light without losing any of her razor sharp writing that I’ve come to know and love. It’s truly made me a bigger fan of hers than I already was.

Love, Chloe was just amazing from start to finish. It tells the story of Chloe, a trust fund baby who after her banker father commits a crime loses all of her wealth and is forced to get a nine to five and finally enter the real world. The book follows Chloe as she traverses her way through this new world and through the new relationships she gains along the way.

I was instantly in love with Chloe from the moment I met her. She felt so real to me as a character which is a testament to Torre’s writing. She’s smart, funny, clumsy, witty, sexy and all of the other amazing things you look for in a lead.

Another thing that was fantastic about this book was the relationships she had with the men in her life, Carter and Vic. Each played an intricate role in Chloe’s life and only helped to make the story all that more rich and complex while reading it.

Finally, the cast of supporting characters were fantastic. From her bitchy new boss to her best friends from her days with money, each added a layer to the story that only made it that much better. There is not a single moment throughout Love, Chloe where a character or moment is wasted.

I literally could not put this book down, and let me tell you that it’s been a while since I’ve felt that way when reading a book. I’ve been bouncing from book to book just looking for that one that would finally pull me out of my slump, and I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt I found it with Love, Chloe.

This for sure will be one of my favorites from this year. 5 stars.

He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker ~Brittany’s Review~

He Will Be My RuinHe Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Good mysteries are hard to come by. Fantastically written good mysteries are like finding a unicorn. So imagine my utter joy when I cracked open He Will Be My Ruin and found myself one of those majestic creatures.

When Maggie’s best friend Celine commits suicide she goes to New York to clean out Celine’s apartment. From the start though, Maggie doesn’t believe that her best friend would ever do something like this to herself. As Maggie starts to dig into the events that led up to that night, more and more begins to come to the surface that leads Maggie to believe she’s right.

The cast of characters Tucker weaves throughout are fantastic. From the kindly old nosy neighbor, to the sexy as hell pot smoking building super, to our lead character Maggie, each character brings something to the story unfolding on the page. And not a single one is a throwaway. They’re well developed and complex regardless of whether or not they’re a main player or supporting cast.

The plot itself is also layered to perfection. As each new bit of information unfolds it adds to the suspense of the story being told. As the reader I gobbled up each new tidbit Tucker threw my way in an attempt to get to the bottom of it.

As an avid reader I find at times it’s incredibly hard to find a book that shocks me anymore. Many times I can discern the twist long before it comes and find myself just plodding along because you know, I started it so I might as well finish it. He Will Be My Ruin was not that book though. It kept me twisting, turning, and second guessing everything until the very end.

Tucker did a fantastic job of setting up the mystery. And since the book is told entirely through Maggie’s POV, we the reader are forced to pick and choose the items we think to be true. Are these actual clues or just the hopeful wishing of a woman who doesn’t want to believe the worst of her best friend?

My one regret with this book is that I started it before the holidays and wasn’t able to just sit down and engross myself in it for three days straight. Amazing book from start to finish. 5 stars.

Bindings by Kate Roth ~Brittany’s Review~

Bindings by Kate Roth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What an unexpected, awesome book. Honestly, when I read the description my first thought was, “I CANNOT read another BDSM book.” Call me jaded or just worn out with the sub-genre in general, but it’s gotten to a point where 90% of them are pretty much the same story with different names.

A huge part of what made this book so great was the stellar writing style of Roth. She crafted these characters perfectly allowing us the reader to get to know them as they got to know eachother. The other thing I adored about this book was that the relationship built at a natural pace throughout the entire book. No “I love you’s” within the first two chapters.

The storyline itself is nothing an avid reader hasn’t found before. Broken women (in this case a beautiful woman named Sloane) meats strong, domineering man (the hot as hell Leo) and a relationship begins. This of course is the Readers Digest version of the description, but it would do future readers a disservice to map out the whole plot in a review.

The characters were great. I loved how real Sloane felt to me. She was intelligent and bright. There were at times her fretting over the past and how it affects her present got to be a bit much for me. I guess it sometimes felt redundant, but for the majority of the time I enjoyed being stuck inside her head with her.

And Leo was fantastic as well. He wasn’t your cookie cutter lead male. He was emotional and kind, but still was able to maintain his intense sense of masculinity. I loved him from start to finish.

The book ends on a cliffy so be forewarned that you may find yourself screaming, “This can’t be the last page!” when you reach the end. (Or maybe that’s just me be a raving lunatic).

So happy I got my hands on this book and was able to be introduced to Roth. She has a fantastic writing style that I can’t wait to get more of. Solid 4 star read.
