Ivy

When I stumbled into a mafia run club seeking a job, I was looking for protection. Little did I know I’d need protection from him.

Conor O’ Callahan was exactly the kind of danger I was trying to avoid. He was gorgeous as sin with an accent hotter than Hades, but that’s where the charm ended.
He was also cynical, cold, and downright cranky.

So, you could imagine my surprise when he gave me a proposition. Marry him or lose my life.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. I’ve learned to do what’s necessary to survive in this world, and that includes marrying a mobster. Regardless of what he might say, it’s only temporary.

It’s not like I’m going to sleep with him. Or fall for him.

Because that would be stupid, right?





ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Her tales have been known to flirt with darkness and sometimes court it unabashedly altogether. Revenge themes and tortured souls are her favorites to write and this gives her an excuse to watch bizarre and twisted documentaries in her spare time.

She is slightly obsessed with Theo James and funny animal memes. If you don’t mind these things, you should add her on facebook.

MY REVIEW

An anthology that satiates all your cravings for romance. From naughty to nice and from M/F romance to taboo M/M/M with a rockstar and fire Chief thrown in what more can we ask for?

Drummer Boy by HB Jasick was a quick, love at first sight read.  A M/M romance.  I loved the friendships and the setting of the story.  The heat was a low simmer.  I would have loved to see more interaction between these two lovers.

Dealing with Christmas by Anna Lee:  Was absolutely hilarious.  I want more!

Bound By Obsession by Aleisha Maree: A naughty read and I’m dying for more.  Love between a drug and alcohol addicted, Christmas hating Rockstar and a take-no-shit, Christmas loving waitress seems doom to fail… Will it?

Red and Green by Tiffany Carby: A sweet romance between a sexy fire Chief and a travelling nurse.

Screwed by Ember-Raine Winters: Is love between a sexy MMA fighter and a virgin therapist possible?  An intriguing read that had my rapt attention.

Baby, it’s Cold Outside by Faith Ryan:  A taboo M/M/M romance and the naughtiest of these stories, I absolutely devoured it. 

Be warned!  These are snack-sized reads that will leave you begging for more.  Meant for those who love a dose of the naughty alongside the nice.

I received an ARC of this book.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Chance
The Wheel of Fortune (Card 10): Things tend to go in cycles. Good times then bad.
Do you know what it’s like to lose everything? I do.
Eight years ago, Jessa Lynn Madison and the title ‘Best Snowboarder in the US’ were both mine.
And then she betrayed me and the mountain had followed suit.
No matter how much I drank, the truth was hard to swallow when it meant choking on my pride.
And no matter how much I screwed, the truth was that I still wanted her.
Anger. Rage. They don’t even begin to describe how I feel.
I was never going to be able to compete again,
but life had given me the perfect opportunity to have Jessa.
And to break her.
Misery loves company. And Jessa was about to be my company.

Jessa
The Fool (Card 0): A symbol of potential and new beginnings.
All I wanted was a fresh start in the town I once called home.
Too bad home was littered with memories of him. Chance Ryder.
The man I’d loved. The man I’d left.
The man who was now my patient. And my roommate.
I know he wants to use me. I know he wants to hurt me.
But I also know that I can’t stop myself from wanting him.
And wanting him has always been my downfall.
Now all I can think about is how to tell him the truth and beg his forgiveness.
I, of all people, should know that explanations and apologies won’t matter.
When it comes to Chance, he’ll hold onto his pride
like he should be holding onto me.

Nora's Promise
Author: Sedona Hutton
Genre: Romance 


BLURB


She trusts animals more than men. He runs through women like tires. Will an orphaned child force them to change gears?

With her sister’s death, Nora’s life changed in an instant. Forced to raise her orphaned nephew, the animal rescuer doesn’t expect to be dumped and fired by her kid-hating boyfriend/boss. After her own close call and a message from beyond, Nora introduces the little boy to his handsome, fast-living absentee father.

Davey Johnson is a hot-shot NASCAR driver who never wanted to be slowed down by fatherhood. But when he finds out he has a nine-year-old son, he vows to be a better father than his old man. When his first efforts fail in a big way, he enlists Nora’s parenting help. But what starts as a chore transforms into something way hotter than a final lap.

When Davey’s sponsors clash with Nora’s vegan ways, he’s forced to choose between his passion for racing and his love of Nora. Will they be able to blend their lives or will their romance run right off the track?



MY REVIEW 

3.5 Stars

Nora’s Promise by Sedona Hutton is a slow burn romance about enjoying life as it comes even when it has thrown a curveball and to remember for every door that closes, another will open.

Davey Johnson is on top of the world. He is a nascar driver at the pinnacle of his career and has any number gorgeous women to choose from, he just needs to say the word.

Nora has just buried her sister, had her boyfriend break up with her and lost her job all in the same day. Not to mention she now has custody of her nephew. When she finds Davey to let him know he is a father, there is an instant attraction but their lives are polar opposites.

Living the fast life, will Davey be able to change gears and slow down once he meets Nora and the son he knew nothing about? Or will he crash and burn and lose everything he never knew he wanted?

An interesting story of life, love, family and forgiveness with a little help along the way from unexpected places.

I loved Nora’s sass and how she stood up for herself and her beliefs. It is enviable. At the same time however, I couldn’t help but feel that she was just a little bit prejudiced when it came to those who didn’t practice the same beliefs she did.

Davey had a lot to learn and although he was stubborn, his growth seemed natural. I love how he was willing to adapt and roll with the punches when it comes to Nora’s and Ben’s beliefs.

Overall an intriguing read. I received an ARC of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


EXCERPT 

Five minutes later, Davey arrived. He quickly spotted her, but spent the next little while signing napkins, papers, and a ballcap as he made his way toward her. With each interruption, Nora’s jaw clenched. By the time he slid into the seat across from her, she was simmering with irritation.

“Glad you could finally make it,” she said, her voice heavy with sarcasm.

He raised a single brow and nodded at her mug. “Haven’t had enough caffeine this morning?”

When Davey turned to look for the waitress, she shot over faster than Nora could blink.

Nora rolled her eyes while Davey laid on the charm. She had to admit he was good-looking. That is if you liked the sun-kissed blond, blue-eyed, tall, lean look. And apparently, the waitress did. As Davey signed her order pad, she hung on his every word. She told him that he’d had a great season and that she had cried after he’d wrecked in some race.

Cried? Seriously? It was a race, not a matter of life and death. Finally, she took Davey’s order for a cup of coffee. When she started to walk away, Davey touched her arm and the woman turned back. Her eyes sparkled and her face flushed as she glanced back and forth between Davey’s hand on her arm and his face. “Amber, could you also bring Nora—” he nodded in her direction “—another tea?” His lips ticked up into an obnoxious grin. “She seems to be a little short on caffeine this morning.”

After Amber pulled herself together and made her way toward the kitchen, Nora pinned a look on Davey. “It must be exhausting to be you.”

REVIEW: Your Sound


Your Sound
(Sherbrooke Station, #3)
Author: Katia Rose
Pub Date: Dec 1, 2018 
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance 


Molly Myers is just your average groupie next door.

Literally.

The rock star whose posters cover her bedroom wall is banging her roommate right on the other side of it. Even for Molly, reigning queen of embarrassing moments, the situation is epically awkward. Every thump of the headboard is just one more reminder that the lead singers of famous bands don’t date bumbling shy girls too anxious to leave their own rooms.

JP Bouchard-Guindon wasn’t looking for Molly’s room when he accidentally burst through the door, but the wild-haired girl lying there in her underwear was certainly worth the detour.

As the keyboardist for Montreal’s latest indie rock sensation, JP has met his fair share of fangirls. He’s always ready to throw up some finger guns for a photo. What he’s not ready for is the way skittish, wide-eyed Molly Myers gets stuck inside his head.

A practical joker and a social recluse are the last people anyone expects a connection between. She’s silence aching for a voice, and he’s sound with a craving for quiet. Their differences will either pull them together, or fracture their worlds when they push them apart.

MY REVIEW

Your Sound by Katia Rose is a phenomenal read! It's her best work to date and focuses on finding your true self and your inner strength.

I was completely engrossed in this third installment in the Sherbrooke Station series. It is smart, entertaining and filled with love, family and laugh-out-loud moments.

"There's actually a part of me that wants to be out there, a part of me that's fearless enough to throw my door open and complete the simple task of saying hello,.." - Molly

Molly is somewhat shy and awkward. She has social anxiety and does not have much confidence but, she does have an absolute love of music.

"I don't know what scares me more: the things I feel when I'm with her, or the emptiness that creeps in when I'm not." - JP

JP, is the funny one, the one that no one ever takes seriously.

When JP and Molly meet, they start up a friendship. Both want more but believe they are not good enough for the other.

Will they risk getting hurt for a once in a lifetime love?

I connected with Molly. Although she is shy and awkward, she is also smart and cute. I loved seeing her transformation from shy girl to the woman she becomes.

JP is the sweetest, most romantic character I have come across. The way he helps build up Molly's confidence as well as the friendship he provides is simply beautiful. He is also funny as hell!

This was an extraordinary read. If Katia Rose is not yet on your auto-buy list, she should be.

I received an ARC of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

AUTHOR BIO

Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart, and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.
