Book review:Cocky F@#ker


I came home to Reverence to start over, not to cozy up to Chelsea F*cking Taylor. Again.

My brother’s ex should have been off-limits, but she wasn’t. Not when we were teens. Not when I married her. And definitely not now.

I thought after I walked away from her in Vegas we were done. I was wrong. This time my brother isn’t getting in the way of what I want. I’m going to fight for her, fight for us.

The girl f*cking loves me, she just doesn’t know it yet.

Friends, lovers, enemies, and now… 

To say our relationship is complicated would be an understatement.

Damaged, demanding, a verifiable prick, Mace Hadley is my biggest mistake, but that didn’t stop the former marine from getting back into my panties the night he arrived home.

It was supposed to be one last screw you. Except he’s in my face each chance he gets, between my legs at every opportunity.

I’m not sure how long I can fight him when I still haven’t gotten over him. But I’ll go down swinging. If I give him my heart and he leaves me behind again, it’ll break me. But that’s not the worst part.

I’m having the cocky f@#cker’s baby.
 
     
        
        
Anyone that knows me,know that I love a friends to lovers romance so when I saw this, I was all over it. Who doesn't love a cocky guy that would do anything for the one girl he truly wants? I know I freakin do! Chelsea and Mace had all the makings to be that one couple that they write love songs about but what's a love story without all the drama and misunderstandings.

"Our entire relationship from when we were teens, for the last ten years, until now has been a series of unfinished moments". .

Chelsea and Mace has been friends since they were teenagers. Growing up with the infamous Hadley brothers has certainly gave her a backbone and the family bond that she's craved. But there has always been one brother that's stood out to her despite her dating the oldest one " Rush". That all changes one night in a barn when Mace delivers some bad news that has her leaning on him for support. Will they give into temptation or move on with the start of their new lives?

"Seeing her again, fucking her again, probably wasn’t the smartest move I could have made. But then I never claimed to be smart. Especially when it came to her.
  


Fast forward a few years later and Chelsea is now an Adult living her own life and trying to forget about Mace.Seeing him hasn't been good for either of them with nothing but burning lust and miscommunications that has frustrated them both. How do they move on from that and try to go back being friends? After being deployed for so many years, Mace is finally back home and all he wants to do is try to adjust to civilian life and be there for his brothers. Being around Chelsea hasn't been good for his sanity or his body. But he's determined to move on and make the best of their situation.How long will that last? You just have to see.

What I really liked about this story was Mace and Chelsea's banter in the begining along with their sexual tension. Those two were a hot sweaty mess and I loved it. What I didn't like was the constant back and forth of "I want you"/I don't want you. This frustrated me to no end and I wanted them to get their sh*t together quickly. If you could overlook that part, I think you would enjoy this story.


Picture
Misti Murphy is a sadistic b*tch who loves to emotionally torture fictional people. If she did that in real life she’d probably end up in prison or a psych ward so she prefers to create dirty talking alphas and the sexually frustrated women who fall into their beds. And if someone needs to be smacked upside the head before f*cking turns to love then that makes her very happy indeed.

She’s a huge believer in flaws making us human, and that not everyone likes bacon. She’s also addicted to chocolate and scared of the effects of the coming shortage. She swears like a f*cking trooper, and thinks that graphic smuttiness should be as real in fiction as it is in real life.

When she’s not writing she’s the perfect housewife and mother. Ha bloody ha! When she’s not writing she’s hiding in a cupboard with her kindle, scoffing chocolate, and stalking facebook.

Blog Tour & Book Review: Already Written Blog Tour by Xavier Neal




When clumsy romance writer, Minka Knight, is asked out on a date by Pierce Wyatt, famous T.V. star, she finds herself in the all too familiar story line where opposites attract. Between their different lifestyles, crazy schedules, and unpredictable meddling friends, being together doesn't seem like the right option. However, as the weeks go by the two discover reality really is stranger than fiction and no love story is already written. 







4.0 NOTTIE STARS!!!
That's the best part about real life, man. No story is already written. No finished copy is being put in circulation for actors to learn. There's no script to stick to. Whatever you want , you just gotta go get it.”


Already Written is my first Xavier Neal book and to be honest this book could really give a positive vibe. The author delivered a lighthearted, fast paced, funny yet enjoyable read that could really made your day and at the same time will warm your heart. But beware though, when you read this book please stop smiling like your crazy but seriously you really can't stop it!

Know what this book made me at only few pages/chapters?
I went from...



to

and then almost thought


Know why?Oh you have to read the book to definitely understand what I mean. ;)


To be real honest, this book gave me first a "cliche" vibe but seriously this doesn't stop me from keeping on turning the pages because no matter how I think it's kinda cliche I can't deny the fact that I was hooked with Minka and Pierce story. These two characters are just so adorable I want to bottle them up then lock them because their just hilarious I can't contain my laughter and and smiles as I went on from page to page. That moment when your at a populated area you need to laugh silently without opening your mouth or smiling and yet your eyes are twinkling?Man! I just did those reading this book. The writing is flawless too I haven't known I'm almost finished. Even the secondary characters is worth rooting for. No heavy drama although there's a little issue near the end, yet it just made the book more edgier. Lighthearted but will make your heart jump at the expectation of the next scene.
Funny thing about books and reality. I could scribble in a few well placed lines, a romantic exchanging of apologies and give you a happily ever after. But I can't do that now. This isn't a Minka Knight novel. The grim reality is happily ever after is just temporary. Looks like mine's over. Permanently. I guess I should just be grateful I finally got a story worth reading about.
Overall, this book really is a must read. If you're up to humorous story with adorable leads and great moral? Then this book is for you. I for instance is on awe of this authors ability to deliver a book that will really struck you...As I said lighthearted but f*ck!!! I'm so in love with it!


Below are one of my favorite lines in the book that really srruck me.
“Dates are a dime a dozen, but you Minka Knight are not.”More nervous than I was for the audition that made me as famous as I am, I continue, “There's no one else in the world remotely like you. You're one in a million. You're my one in a million. I don't want a Cam or a Tessa. I don't want a headline or a front page. I just want you. I want the woman I can share hot dogs with.” ~ Pierce
Best part is I didn't even have to write the romantic things he says or does. It's all real and genuine, proving once more life doesn't need rewrites and revisions . While my non-fiction story is full of errors and unexpected twists, it's still beautiful and I love that it's mine. ~Minka
Did I say this is my first Xavier Neal book?Nah it will definitely not my last!

Good job!

Sonya's weekend Rec

Calling all my bikerbabes!!! Happy Friday Everyone.I feel like being bad this weekend. Do you? If that's a hell yes, then I need to introduce you to Zeek MOTHAEFFIN Deluca.I'm recommending "Reign"by M.N Forgy.

 STATS:

MC PRESIDENT√

 BADASS√

 HOT AS F*CKIN SIN√

 Do I have your attention now? This is why I love MC books. The grit, the justification, the power and knowing that even though they are complete badasses, there's always a woman that will bring them to their knees. And here's the best part ladies, he's the the MC President but she's the town Sherriff!! I can already hear the one click go go go!! Note: "Reign does end on a cliffhanger but book 2 "Mercy" is available now.


As the president of the Sin City Outlaw Motorcycle Club, I fuck as hard as I ride and rarely go to bed alone.
The women are fast and the violence is intense.
I excel in both.
People either respect me or fear me. I'm not arrogant. It’s just the truth.
I was a king, reigning over Vegas without complication, until one gorgeous sheriff made everything fall apart.
When I saw her, I became a Neanderthal, wanting nothing more than to be between those legs.
I guess that’s where I went wrong, because my reality was shot to hell real fucking fast.
One kiss caused her to step over that blue line.
One night in her bed made me a traitor.
And now… we’re both screwed. 







Blog Tour and Book Review: Layers of her by Prescott Lane

 layers of her - blog tour.jpg
A Letter to my Readers
Rape. Just typing that word makes my gut tie up in knots. And that’s part of the problem.
Because it’s so uncomfortable, we don’t want to talk about it. So it gets buried at the bottom the newsfeed or forgotten altogether, like the backlog of untested rape kits.
Last March, I released Quiet Angel in which the heroine is a survivor of childhood sexual assault. A few weeks later, my husband became gravely ill, and we spent the rest of the year (5 long hospital stays and 4 long surgeries) fighting to regain his health. As I sat in the hospital chair next to his bed night after night, I got messages from women about how my book touched them. Some shared their reasons, and others didn’t.
I came to learn that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. How could I not know that? just released a book on the very topic. Yet I didn’t see one post about it on any of my social
media accounts.
Early this year, I began writing Layers of Her with the intent to spread awareness and donate of April's profits to charity. I was nervous when I started, and I still am. I mean, how much the profits be? Will readers assume I’m a survivor or I know one? Will I do the topic justice?
Why am I doing this? It’s a whole lot easier to stay silent. But that’s the whole problem, isn’t I work in a field, in the genre of fiction, that is mostly comprised of women, where sexual assault
is one of the most common tropes. And with each passing page, we pull for our broken heroes
and heroines to heal, find love, forge a new path. That's all we want for them. We need to do same for the real life heroes and heroines, those brave souls who fight the real fight every single
day. So join me this April in making some noise to raise awareness, not only for the survivors
but for those who love them.
Prescott.

AP new - synopsis.jpg
People always say it’s what’s on the inside that matters. If that’s the case, I’m screwed. On the outside, everything looks put together — blonde hair, blue eyes, tall and lean. By society’s standards, I’d be considered attractive. But f*ck society, I know what I am. I know what I’m made of. The recessive genes that reared their heads and created a decent looking package on the outside don’t make me who I am. What about all the evil lurking inside? What about all the other parts of me that aren’t so easy to see? Some of the most beautiful animals are also the deadliest. Take the polar bear, for example. Cute and cuddly on the outside, but it’s really a predator that will bite your f*cking head off. That’s a dangerous combination.
And that’s exactly like me, exactly who I am. Bad — and once you go bad, you can never go back.
WARNING: This book deals with the harsh reality of rape that could be upsetting for some readers.
AP new - excerpt.jpg
“What made you come for me?” she asks.  I tell her my theory about men making decisions based on one of three body parts — head, heart, dick.  “So which led you to my house tonight?” she asks.
“Let’s just say two out of three ain’t bad.”
Her giggle fills up the room.  “Stone?”
“Hmm?”
“Don’t let me forget.”  
“Forget what?”
“How good I feel right now,” she says.
I know exactly what she’s feeling.  She doesn’t think she deserves to be happy.  It’s a constant waiting on the other shoe to drop so you can prove to yourself that all the bad shit you fill your head with is true.  That you’re bad, and that’s why bad things happen around you, or to those you love.  Dealt with that myself when Tate got her diagnosis.  Who am I kidding?  I still fight those demons, knowing she’s suffering because of my mistakes.  Self-blame is a bitch.  Self-hatred is even worse.  Guess I’ll just have to teach Campbell to love herself as much as I love her.
Yeah, yeah, it’s fast.  But how long does it really take to fall in love with someone?  A minute?  An hour?  A day?  A year?  For me, it took exactly one kiss.  The moment her lips touched mine in that hospital room, I was gone.  
Besides, what do you really have to know about a person to love them?  Not a damn thing other than how they make you feel when you close your eyes at the end of the day with them wrapped in your arms.

" How long does it take to fall in love with someone? A minute? An hour? A day? A year? 

"You know what I love about books like these? It's an eye opener about a very real topic that's not been talked about a lot. So when Ms.Lane contacted me to to review this, I was more than happy to help and spread the word about this because I truly feel that the more we come together and have a strong voice, we could make such a difference and help.

RAPE. 

That one word puts a silence on everything but it's a strong and fearful word. How can four letters shatter your world, strip your confidence,and turn you into a shell of a person? How is it possible that those four letters formed such a hateful and earth shattering word? 

Campbell and Stone have known each other for the past year. Being a former MMA fighter and now the owner of a gym,Stone has been teaching Campbell self defense lessons. But there's an intense attraction between them that not matter how hard they both try, it won't go away. 

They both have secrets and baggage that rivals one another but Campbell is trying her best not to get too close to Stone. Will Stone break down her walls and show her what love really is,or will Campbell continue to go down a wrong a path that doesn't include him? 

"She and I are from completely different worlds. She's from a place of words and feelings. I trade in the currency of fists. " 

I Loved Stone! Let me say it again. I loved him. That man was the epitome of love. How he cared for a certain someone in this book just melted my heart. He was fearless,strong, and selfless. I really wasn't expecting to like him as much as I did but he made the story.

 Campbell was lovable heroine and I liked how the author portrayed her past and seeing how it impacted her present. I had one major issue but aside from that, I enjoyed it and I encourage everyone to support this awareness.
