REVIEW: Never Loved by Charlotte Stein


Beatrix Becker spent most of her life under the thumb of her controlling, abusive father. And now that she’s free and attending her dream college, she has no idea how to act like the normal crowd: partying, going on dates, even having a conversation. Then she meets Serge Sorensen. Big and surly with a whole host of riotous tattoos, Serge is supposed to scare the hell out of her. But beneath his harsh exterior, Beatrix discovers a kindred spirit who knows what it’s like to be a misfit. Most exhilarating—and terrifying—is what he does for a living: illegal street fighting.

There’s nothing like the rush Serge gets from the intense athleticism and brutal glory of combat—though his chemistry with Beatrix comes close. Slowly at first, he introduces her to his world, where he lives by instinct, passion, and desire. He even helps her out with her equally traumatized brother. But when Serge gets in too deep with the wrong people, he ends up paying in blood. And suddenly, just as Beatrix has been drawn into Serge’s perfectly sculpted arms, she’s thrown once and for all into the fight of his life.

Mentioning Abbi Glines might have been the first clue that I might have a love/hate with this one. I usually like Charlotte's work but this one while extremely entertaining, just felt like there was too many things happening all at once.

REVIEW : Cheaters Anonymous by Lacey Silks


RELEASE DATE : April 21, 2015
High school friends - nothing more.
That was our promise to each other, because let's face it, infidelity spreads like a disease.
Everybody cheats.
And it's easier to remain friends than hurt the only person you ever cared about - or so we thought.

Major case of 'don’t judge a book by its cover' and pleasantly surprised by this one. Not at all what I thought when I saw the cover and title. It was exact opposite to be honest.
When you see a title like "cheaters anonymous", my expectations were a couple that while in love just couldn't keep it together. Yeah, I wasn't even close.

They want to let go of each other, but can’t.
Their passion is too hot to resist.
Things are scorching as real estate gets real…

I also took notice of the new covers. Think I prefer the old look and tag to be honest.

REVIEW: Accidentally in Love by Laura Drewry

RELEASE DATE : June 16, 2015
Ellie Palmer and cops don’t mix, and getting pulled over by Officer Brett Hale—again—doesn’t help. Neither does being forced to take a safe-driving course with him. Brett’s by-the-book attitude leaves Ellie ice-cold, and his rock-hard body won’t change that. Still, the more time she spends with the guy, the more she finds herself warming up to his unexpected charms.

Even though Brett comes off like a boy scout, Ellie has sparked something he wants badly enough to get him to rethink his past mistakes. But when her ex shows up, Brett makes it his mission to keep Ellie safe in the here and now. His gut tells him the guy’s trouble, and Ellie must agree, because she doesn’t complain when Brett pulls her close. To keep her safe, though, he’ll have to choose between breaking her heart . . . and breaking the rules.

This was a pretty fun read for me. It had a very sweet and slow burn with a major dramatic punch.

REVIEW: Falling Fast by Tina Wainscott

RELEASE DATE : June 16, 2015

Raleigh West works in an auto shop day and night, trying to put his broken past out of mind. It’s been seven years since the fiery crash that landed his teenage sweetheart in the hospital . . . and him in jail. In an instant, he lost everything: his passion for racing, his hope of escaping his father’s shameful legacy, and the only girl he ever loved. Raleigh hasn’t seen her since that awful night. Never got a chance to apologize. And never forgave himself, either.

When brave, beautiful Mia Wentworth returns to the Florida coast for the first time in what seems like forever, it’s not to see Raleigh. Even so, the moment she arrives she can feel his presence like a gust of wind that gives her goose bumps. Opening her heart to him again seems impossible. But staying away? That might be harder still. Lucky for them both, Mia’s never been the kind of woman to take the easy way out.

Oh my lord I completely fell in love with Raleigh and Mia. This was such an amazing journey with their love trying to overcome every obstacle. Fuck man, these feels messing with my cold heart.
