Book Review: All I Am by Jodi Ellen Malpas

Book Review: All I Am by Jodi Ellen Malpas

If you haven’t read the THIS MAN series by Jodi Ellen Malpas, don’t worry it’s not really necessary. However, you won’t be disappointed if you DO happen to read This Man before diving in to this book. When I heard that she was releasing a novella for This Man, I GOT SO EXCITED. I just loved Jesse and Ava so much! I really wanted to get to know Drew a bit more too after reading This Man, so I am so glad that JEM released this book! This book takes place after the epilogue of the This Man series. Drew is pushing Forty and he’s the only one still single among their group. He has his daughter, Georgia, and that’s all he needs. Hux, a club similar to The Manor, takes care of his other needs. He’s pretty much come to terms with the way his life is and will always be….until he meets Raya. I’ll be honest, I did enjoy the book but it left me wanting more. By more, I mean more Jesse, the parts of the book where he makes an appearance are the best! I’m sorry, Drew! Although, I did quite enjoy Drew’s daughter, Georgia, too. She was adorable! I don’t know, maybe if Drew and Raya had gotten a bit more to their story, a novel instead of a novella, I might have enjoyed it more. Oh well, it was still a good read and I’m glad I did get to see what’s happening in […]

The Deep End by Kristen Ashley

The Deep End by Kristen Ashley

Erin’s Review:     WOW. I recommend you turn the air conditioning when you start this book. It is seriously HOT. I thought Kristen Ashley’s Unfinished Hero series was dirty…those books have NOTHING on The Deep End. Wow. In the Unfinished Hero books, KA does dabble a bit in the BDSM when it came to some of the sex scenes but not anything like this book. This book was ALL SEX for the most part and most of it was the drrrty kind, not the plain ole vanilla kind. Ok, I have to be honest, it took a while for me to really get in to the story. I got a little lost in the beginning of the book. It might have been the narrative, as I am not the biggest fan of third person, possibly just the story starting out really slow as well. There was a lot of inner dialogue I could have lived without, especially in the beginning of the book but eventually I started to get in to the story. I really enjoyed the second half of this book a lot more than the first half. Things definitely got a lot more interesting, there was more than just intense dirty sex happening ..the story developed a lot more. Amelia is the DOMME in this book, and it was interesting, seeing the female in that role… and Olivier was referred to as an Alpha/Sub.. and he was definitely a Kristen Ashley ALPHA IN ALMOST ALL THE WAYS, except for […]

Book Review: Fire In You by J. Lynn + Giveaway!

Book Review: Fire In You by J. Lynn + Giveaway!

I can’t believe that it’s the end of the Wait For You series!! I love these characters and I’m sad to see this series getting a wrap! We’ve met Brock and Jillian in previous books of the Wait For You series. Jillian is a bit younger than the rest of the crew in this series and last we saw her she was crushing hardcore on Brock, all the while, Brock just saw her as a little sister. This book takes place about six years after the rest of the series. Jillian is working in insurance and hasn’t seen Brock in those six years. The reason why being that the one night she decides to tell Brock how she feels about him, he pretty much blows her off. Minutes later after she leaves the Mona’s after she had been waiting for him, her life dramatically changes and definitely NOT IN A GOOD WAY. Now it’s six years later and Jillian is still trying to get past the tragic event that she went through.. She finally decides to take a job at her father’s MMA training academy, only later finding out that Brock is her boss…and little does she know Brock has finally realized that she’s more than just a “kid sister” to him… OH MY GOD. Why is this series over? I can’t get enough of Cam and Avery! They’re my favorite couple out of this entire series! As I was writing up this review I realized that this entire story […]

Mr. President by Katy Evans + GIVEAWAY!

Mr. President by Katy Evans + GIVEAWAY!

I started this book the night before I was set to leave on vacation…I read until I couldn’t keep my eyes open..and then I woke up the next morning with a mile long list of things to do and pack before I left on a trip and instead of doing that, I sat down with my iPad and finished Mr. President. Let’s just say I left for my trip HOURS after I planned on doing so. Oops. ūüôā But this book was just THAT GOOD. Charlotte was only eleven the first time she met Matt Hamilton. His father (then president) Lawrence Hamilton, brought him along to a dinner at Charlotte’s family’s home. Although Charlotte wasn’t originally supposed to attend the dinner she somehow talked her parents into letting her join. Good thing she did, because that dinner pretty much sealed her destiny. Charlotte was so charmed by Matt that she wrote him a letter after the dinner telling him that if he ever decided to run for president he had her vote and she’d even be willing to join his campaign.. Many years later, It appears that Matt was also charmed by Charlotte because he remembers her and her letter and calls on her offer 10+ years ago to join his campaign…and this is where the story really begins. Though Charlotte doesn’t originally accept the offer to join the campaign, after re-thinking it she calls his campaign manager and accepts the position because she wants to be a part of […]

The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas (Review & Giveaway)

The Protector by Jodi Ellen Malpas (Review & Giveaway)

  Book Trailer     Review Oh. my. GOD. This is another masterpiece from Jodi Ellen Malpas. If you love a Tall, Dark and Moody hero then Jake Sharp is the Book Boyfriend for you. Jake Sharp has serious demons and he lives with them every day. The only ways that help him keep them at bay is drinking, sex and work. When a job comes in to guard the daughter of a rich business man he’s reluctant to take it at first glance.¬†What he’s expecting is a rich spoiled girl brat, but it isn’t what he gets. Camille Logan is a smart, independent woman who is determined to make a name for herself without the help of her father. The moment the two of them meet in the story the chemistry is there and it builds up quite nicely throughout the story. I really enjoyed getting to know the two of them. Jake’s backstory is quite heartbreaking and I definitely didn’t expect for it to turn out the way it did. But in the end it works out quite nicely and it will definitely bring a tear or two to your eyes. It was a very sweet ending. The Protector is a standalone novel, unlike Jodi’s previous work, and I’m quite sad that we won’t get to spend any more time with Jake and Camille. Who knows? Maybe in the future she’ll re-visit them again. We’ll see… Jodi definitely knows how to write a Swoony-worthy guy and if you […]

The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Wow, I have no words for this book. Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of those authors who I don’t even bother reading the synopsis for any book she writes..I just usually dive in to the book.¬†The Problem with Forever¬†is a heartbreakingly beautiful book and when I started reading the prologue I knew that it was unlike anything she’s written before.

It’s been FOUR YEARS since she’s even seen Rider or talked to Rider. She’s been adopted by an amazing and supportive couple. She’s learning how to overcome what she’s been through.

Of course there was a drama, there should always be a […]

The Power by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Power by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Ok wow, This book was even better than The Return. I really started to like Seth a whole lot more. I mean he finally started to grow on me in the Return (I kind of wanted to punch in the Covenant books…so that’s saying a lot), but I like him even more now, though he did have a few moments where someone needed to bitchslap him, but he found his way again… This book kind of dragged for me a bit in the beginning but it really started to pick up when we got towards the middle. We see quite a few people from the Covenant series in this book series (OMG guess who shows up in this book?! I bet you’ll never guess! :P) and we even meet a new demigod in the Power. Hercules. Yes, THAT Hercules shows up to help out a bit… and WOW. I don’t think I’ve ever rolled my eyes so hard at a character in a book before. He made for some good entertainment in this book, that is for sure. Wow, the end of the book. I have no words.. I was definitely not expecting that to happen and neither was Seth or anyone else for that matter, it seems. Something’s changed.. and Josie hasn’t given up on Seth, and I don’t think she should. Because even though he doesn’t see it, I don’t think the situation he’s found himself in is anywhere near as bad as everyone thinks it will be. […]
