BOOK BLURB:
Hot hockey superstar Brent Oliver has it all—good looks, charm, dozens of endorsement deals, and a spectacular career.

Uh, nix that last one.

Brent has the talent and skill that should have his career soaring. But something is wrong. He’s lost his hockey mojo and can’t get it back.

Enter Aubrey Shelburne, life coach to the stars.

Aubrey’s worked with some difficult celebrities, but she’s never encountered a guy quite like Brent Oliver.

Or has she?

Seems a reckless night of partying, one that had Aubrey waking up in a strange man’s bed, is about to bite her in the ass. That is, if Brent doesn’t first.

Fighting an off-the-charts attraction, Aubrey and Brent must learn to work together. But it’s not an easy task when they’re at each other’s throats every minute.

Is this relationship a disaster in the making?

Or is it destiny?

Washboard abs and sex toy mishaps aside, Destiny on Ice is a fun and irreverent romp that’ll have you swooning on one page and laughing on the next.


REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.


4 “Brent 51” Stars!
I thoroughly enjoyed this funny, witty, sexy read! 

I always know I’m in for a treat when I get my hands on a S.R. Grey book. But this is S.R. Grey like you’ve never seen her before. Her books are usually angsty, always sexy and sometimes filled with an emotional journey you can’t help but get the “feels” from. This book? Was just plain fun! Of course it had a wonderful romance story, as all this author’s books do. And of course, I loved it from beginning to end as the light bit of angsts played out between our hero and heroine. But what I was thrilled to get was the humor, the witty banter and the outrageous antics as well as the sexy-steamy between two delicious characters with amazing chemistry.

Following in his father's footsteps and going beyond, Brent Oliver is the star of his hockey team, the Las Vegas Wolves. He’s cocky, self assured and talented. And he’s a total manwhore. But he and his team have lost their way, which is why it’s suggested he visit a life coach during their off season. In walks Aubrey Shelburn, his newly appointed life coach and someone he’s already met and had a highly entertaining encounter with. The sparks start right away between these two, and soon, a humorous and a bit forbidden romance begins to develop.

Brent was dreamy! I’m not a huge reader of sports romances but if all the heroes were like Brent, I’d be hooked on nothing else. I loved his character. And Aubrey was intelligent, snarky and took no prisoners when doling out her words. I loved these two together. There was such a tension between them that slowly became a wonderful friendship but their chemistry couldn’t be denied as they fall for one another, hook, line and sinker.

I got the feels, I got the funny and I got the forbidden. All in one read. What’s not to love.

This one is definitely going in my reread pile!

HEA: Yes!


BOOK BLURB:
For almost five years, Alex has had one obsession. Her name is Elynn.

Alex Hanas couldn’t believe that after so many years as a widower, his father was getting remarried. To make matters worse, the American gold digger had a kid—a daughter named Elynn. After months of avoiding it, Alex goes to brunch with every intention of giving his father’s new family the deep freeze. But he can’t pull it off with Elynn’s anxious green-grey eyes locked on him.

That was the day his life changed.

Four years later, Alex is as close to Elynn as a stepbrother can be. But that’s not enough for him. He wants more…and he’s done waiting.



4.5 Obsessed Stars!
Ahhh-Maze-ing! 

The Review: 
YES! This is the kind of book I have been longing for! I’ve been in a reading funk lately and this one just yanked me right out of it. Brilliantly written, this book held all the trappings I love in my romance reads and delighted me with a deliciously sexy hero and a unique heroine I could totally connect with. Once I was done, I immediately wanted to go back and do a reread.

I’m hooked and can’t wait to read more by this author!

Story/Characters... 
Alexandros Hanas has just got a new family he didn’t want. At twenty-seven, the wealthy, sexy, swoon-worthy alpha is reluctant to get to know his father's new wife and her seventeen year old daughter, Elynn, who he remembers from his one and only brief meeting as being a frumpy, plain-Jane. He believes his father, Costas, has married a gold-digger and isn’t willing to give Mary and her daughter a chance.

Elynn Scallett is an intelligent overachiever with a traumatic past. She’s shy, introverted and has dreams of working in a lab as a mycologist. With her past haunting her, she nervously meets her new stepbrother, Alex, with anxiety and the possible threat of poisoning him with her ... mushrooms.

I have to say right here, that I LOVED their meet-greet. Elynn is different and unique and I enjoyed getting to know her. She’s young and naive and that has caused her a certain amount of problems in the past, but soon she has a champion on her side when Alex’s heart becomes invested in ensuring her safety and well being.

Alex was older than Elynn and though he tried to keep their relationship on a brotherly/sisterly notes, it was hard for him to distance himself wholly, considering his feelings and her past. But he waited, patiently, for four long years, for her to grow, mature and heal. He wasn’t a saint while he waited. He played the field, his exploits splashed all over the tabloids. And though traditionally, I like my hero’s to be devoted to their one and only woman throughout the story, I think, given Elynn’s past, this actually helped them. Elynn felt comfortable around Alex because she only saw him as her friend and confidant, not as a threat as she tried to heal. She could be around him when she couldn’t comfortably be around other men. 

In the back of his mind, Alex knew that their future was together. He just needed her to be ready for him and when he realized that time had come, Alex stopped at nothing to claim his girl. They had an intensive, push-pull, tension-filled slow build from friends to lovers romance that kept me riveted to the pages. Alex was all alpha. He was possessive, demanding, dominant, protective and maybe even a little obsessive. And I loved every minute of it!

These two were scorching HOT together. Their chemistry, which totally brought the tummy flutters and chest pangs, was amazing to read. And the feels! I have to talk about the feels. Their emotional journey to a happily ever after was done so wonderfully. I love angsty books and this one had some very real and emotional moments, along with thrilling and exciting moments, all leading to a perfect romance that totally captivated my heart.

The Wrap Up: 
Making Her His was just an all around great read that touches on the forbidden and delves into the erotic with two amazing characters who you can relate to and who you can connect with. I wanted to be Elynn! To have Alex’s attention turned my direction and to have all that determination and effort aimed my way just to have me? Yes! I wanted to be Elynn!

I loved this book! It’s that simple. This was my first read by this author, but I’ve already purchased the other books in this series so I can get my swoon on! I can’t wait to read more about the side characters in this book and if those books are even half as hot as this one, then it’ll be money well spent!

She told me Heaven would knock on my door one day. That I would be swept away from the hell I lived in.

Beautiful.

An angel.

And then.

My life became hell.

I left. Went to war. Killed. All for her.

EXCERPT

Jesse’s threats should make me want to shut my mouth; they don’t. I’ll make all the noise in the world to find out why I feel like I’m being dragged to my death. Oh God, please tell me they do not know!

Without warning, Cutter grips me by my hair, yanking me out of my spot in the corner. My backside is landing on the rough gravel with a solid thud. The sharp stones are penetrating through the flesh on my back. I scream out in agony as this man bores his fingers into my cheeks, digging into my skin enough to draw blood with his fingernails penetrating through my flesh. They’re going to kill me.

“You’re finally getting a chance to get out of here. If you fuck this up, I’ll kill him. Do you get me?” What? I ignore his comment about leaving here. That rolling in my stomach starts to turn, spinning out of control until it crashes into my chest, making it hard for me to breathe. I know exactly whom he’s referring to, and the thought makes me want him to stick his dick in my mouth so I can bite the repulsive little thing off. He’s talking about Riddick. 

Cutter nods my head for me using his greased, stained hands, his fingernails so dirty I gag at the sight. Those hands that make me cringe every time they touch me leave my face and go right back to my hair, where he pulls me behind him across the lot while I stifle my cries of pain. Not from the gravel clawing and embedding into my skin. From the words he spits out like it’s an everyday occurrence to threaten me with the only thing that can plunder my soul. This is the first time he’s physically hurt me, which makes me realize that whatever I’m here for is the worst kind of bad.

My life is not my own anymore. It belongs to my brother, and I’m a nut job because of it. I live inside my own head, talk to myself, pretend like I’m carrying on a conversation with the one person I want with me all the time. 

Riddick. 

I stare at walls for hours upon hours of the day and night, daydreaming of a better life on the ocean, where I can roam freely. Feel the wind swaying in with the tide, my hair blowing back away from my face as I breathe in the salty air. These conscious fantasies are a young woman’s fairy tale we all wish to come true. Riddick knows how much living on the ocean means to me. He is going to kill them for thinking they can put their slimy hands on me. This will be the end to the street fighting gang war my brother seems to think he’s the king of. People stay clear of Jesse Barrick for a reason. He’s maniacal crazy. Certifiably teetering on the edge of insanity. And whatever his reasons are for mistreating me have crazed him out to the point where I’m tumbling over the edge first.

NEW REVIEW!! HOME TEARS by Tijan:


"The drama, secrets and mystery surrounding the O’Hara family kept me glued to the pages, anxious to figure out what was going on and the incredible cast of entertaining characters brought the small town of Craigstown to life."

MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 4.5 Stars!
CLIFFHANGER: No

BOOK BLURB:
Dani’s survived a lot of shit storms.

Her mother died. Her two sisters loathed her. One aunt hated her. The other was strangely distant, but the worst storm—being dumped by her childhood best friend/high school boyfriend/first love for her younger sister.

There went the one person who was hers and with that, the main reason she stuck around. So, she left for ten years. But now she’s back, and nothing’s the same.

With help from Jonah Bannon, a reformed—kind of—bad boy she remembers from high school, Dani uncovers family secrets that have spanned generations. And along with those, she’s about to face the biggest sh*t storm of her life.

Only this time, she may not survive.



4.5 Stars!
Definitely a must read! 

The Review: 
This isn’t just a romance... 

I go into a Tijan read knowing I’m going to hit the mother load for angsts and come out in the end swooning. I love her books. They are always filled with crazy-out-there drama and a romance that I can read time and again. With Home Tears, I knew things were going to be a little different than her other books, but I had no idea just how different. 

And I loved it! Every. Single. Bit. Of It!

Like I said, this is more than a romance. In fact, the romance sort of takes a backseat to the life of Dani O’Hara, her family and the townspeople of Craigstown. Of course, there is drama, there are buried secrets and the characters are incredibly lively ... all the things you’d expect from a great Tijan read. But there’s more. There’s so much more, if you just dig a little deeper and really take in the story this author is trying to tell.

Story/Characters... 
Dani O’Hara is a runner. She’s been running all her life. She ran by building walls around herself as a child, she ran the night her boyfriend and her sister betrayed her, she ran the moment she might have found happiness with another and she ran when tragedy struck. But now she’s back home in Craigstown and her reappearance after ten long years has sent the small town into a tailspin. Everyone is shocked. Everyone has something to say. And no one expected to ever see her again.

Jonah Bannon is a town hero. He’s worshiped by most and beloved by all. He could have his pick of any woman he wanted, especially in Craigstown, but the moment he sets his sights on Dani, he knows she’s the challenge he’s been waiting for.

Jake Cairns, Dani’s ex, has a bucket full of guilt. And when Dani comes back into his life, he’s thrown off balance. Julia O’Hara, Dani’s sister, isn’t pleased with her return either and drama unfolds as the sisters try to find their footing in a town two small for the both of them.

There’s also a mystery to solve. After returning home, Dani starts asking questions and soon realizes her family has more hidden secrets and lies between them than she ever thought possible. She’s come home to heal after the events that lead to her running again, but this time, she’s determined to stay and make peace with her past, but first, she has to find herself ... her true self. And with Jonah’s help, she might just be able to do that.

I loved Jonah and Dani’s chemistry. They were sweet and sexy and had a real connection as Dani was able to open up to him like she hadn’t been able to for anyone else. The drama, secrets and mystery surrounding the O’Hara family kept me glued to the pages, anxious to figure out what was going on and the incredible cast of entertaining characters brought the small town of Craigstown to life. And that dramatic ending isn’t one I’ll forget any time soon. I loved it!

The Wrap Up: 
There was so much going on in this read it and I found the story to be incredibly exciting, heartfelt, emotional and powerful. Dani was an admirable heroine. She was strong and resilient. Her journey to finding her happily-ever-after was fraught with trials and heartbreak, but in the end, I think she needed all that to really connect to who she was and where she came from.

This wasn’t just a romance.... For Dani and the people of Craigstown, it was a new beginning.

NEW REVIEW! EX GAMES by Stella Rhys:


"Ex Games was a delightful read all the way through. With lively characters, a riveting and fun story with a light bit of angsts, I didn’t want to put this one down." - Craves the Angst

MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 4 Stars
CLIFFHANGER: No
HEA: Yes!

BOOK BLURB:
What’s ice-cold but hotter than hell? Rebounding with your ex’s older brother, of course.

A perfect storm led me to this place. Ghosted by my fiancĂ©, I was suddenly broke, heartbroken and facing eviction. Enter Mason Leo, the six feet and two inches of pure muscle and arrogance I’ve hated with a passion since the day we met. The man is cocky, womanizing and ruinously gorgeous.

Worse than that, he’s my ex’s brother. And for the next two weeks, he gets to do with me as he pleases.

I’ll explain.

With both our exes – wait for it – set to marry each other in St. Lucia, I’ve agreed to let Mason pay my debts so long as I play his date. My only job is to keep my clothes on while I get my closure. Because as much as I hate Mason Leo, the man is a walking sex god. And in the name of revenge, he gets to take me out, show me off – dress, touch and kiss me with those wicked lips. It’s all for show, but every night in paradise with him brings more drinks, more drama and another temptation, so no matter what I do, I can’t stop reminding myself this:

There’s absolutely no good to come from f*cking my ex’s brother.

No matter how good it’ll feel.

**EX GAMES is a sexy, full-length standalone with a HEA**


REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.


4 “Fauxmance” Stars!
Sexy, witty and just plain fun! 

The Review: 
Ex Games was a delightful read all the way through. With lively characters, a riveting and fun story with a light bit of angsts, I didn’t want to put this one down. And Mason... whoa! That man was all kinds of yummy!

Story/Characters... 
Taylor Simms has been dumped by her fiance. After three years of devoting herself to the man she thought she would spend the rest of her life with, she certainly didn’t expect to wake up one morning to an empty closet and a short note with no real explanation. Better yet, she didn’t expect her ex’s brother, the man she vowed to loath since their first meeting, to come to her rescue with a plan for closure and a solution to the mountain of debt to her ex left her with.

Mason Leo is sexy, rich and full of himself. He’s known for his wild ways and one night stands. And when his jealous brother hooks up with one of his ex’s and leaves his fiancee, a woman he would give anything to be with, he forms a plan to save his family and maybe get the girl of his dreams.

I loved the chemistry between Mason and Taylor. They were HAWT!! Right from the start, these two had it going on! Mason walks in all cocky and full of himself, but very quickly you see there’s more to him than the womanizing playboy Taylor thought him to be. Mason was this intense mystery that gets slowly revealed as his multiple layers are peeled away and underneath, you discover an entirely different man than you originally thought him to be. Gone is the aloof snark and in it’s place is a solid, kind, heartfelt man waiting for the love of his life to finally be his.

Taylor never expected to fall in love with Mason, but I loved the way she committed once she realized her feelings. There was no back and forth and even though she had every reason to be gun shy with relationships, she was open to the possibility of something more with Mason. There was a lot to Taylor’s story, including a past pain that she’s struggled to overcome. And though she’s a private person, she truly opens up to Mason and they connect in a real way.

Meeting the ex’s was... interesting. You expect someone who can leave his fiance to be with another woman because he’s trying to one-up his brother to be loathsome, but Aaron was a bigger tool than I initially thought. Between he and Mason, he came up short every single time. There was no comparison and he knew it, which was why he took his jealousy and competition to a whole new level.

The Wrap Up: 
This was a quick, fantastic read that had me laughing in places, anxious in others and engaged the whole way through. I found myself rooting for the bad boy and the lonely girl before the end of the first chapter. Definitely a must read and another win for Stella Rhys!

Giveaway Hop!
Hosted by Stuck In Books

There are a ton of books I could list that I feel need more attention. I've read some truly amazing books this year alone and most of them deserve their own special recognition. 

Included in that list is one I recently read titled The Reason For Me, a stand alone novel by Prescott Lane. I've been a fan of this author for a while now and I've watched her writing and creativity grow with each new book she releases. The Reason for Me was a perfect read with phenomenal writing, an emotionally gripping story, solid characters and all those angsts I love.

"Emotionally heartbreaking, hopeful, mesmerizing, profound - are all just words and aren’t nearly powerful enough to describe the “feels” this book evokes." - Craves the Angst

Holt 
She likes it quick and dirty. 
I like orders and rules. 
She hates small talk. 
I hate to share. 
She’s an open book. 
I’m a closed dresser drawer. 
She rides a Harley. 
And that drives me f’ing nuts.

Annalyse and I have both lived in our own personal hells for half a decade.  She’s learned to love the warmth, and I’m still consumed.  But my new neighbor is stoking more than my libido these days.  We agreed on only pleasure.  But she changed the rules.

And now I’m not even sure what they are.

Maybe there’s a reason she found me that night, maybe there’s a reason I can’t stop thinking about her, maybe there’s a reason for the pain.  Maybe not.

We all look for reasons in life.  Reasons for death, love, pain.  Why one thing happens and not another?  It’s human nature.  We’ve been looking for the meaning of life since the beginning of time.  But maybe the reason for all of it — life, love, loss, heartache — is the curvy brunette living next door.

EXCERPT

Whoa, wait! What am I thinking here? No lap dances and dates with Aubrey? 

Never. Going. To. Happen. 

“What’s up with you, Brent?” Nolan asks. “You’ve been weird since we left your house.” 

We’re on the back patio of his house now, which is four doors down from my place. I’m still drinking, but much more slowly. 

Setting my beer down on an outdoor iron table in front of me, I sigh. “I don’t know, man. I guess I feel kind of bad treating Aubrey the way I did.” 

“What?” He makes a who-the-fuck-cares face. “You mean the life coach chick?”  

 “Yeah, the life coach chick.” I blow out a breath. “But she’s more than that. She’s a really great girl.”

Nolan knows me far too well. He senses where this is leading. 

“Dude,” he begins, in full warning mode. “Don’t even think of going there.” 

I play dumb. “What do you mean?”

“Oh, you know what I mean. Getting involved with that woman would be nothing but trouble. She was hired by the team to help you, which kind of makes her like your employee by default.” 

“An employee I’d like to bang,” I admit.

“I wouldn’t do that if I were you.” 

I glare over at him from across the patio table. “Are you kidding? Of course you would.”

“Yeah, you’re probably right,” he concedes. “So maybe you should bang her. But real secretly. And just once. Get her out of your system before you fuck up your career.”

When he starts staring over at me, like he has more to say on the subject, I make an attempt to change the topic. I need to end this conversation about my life coach, who I already can’t get out of my goddamn mind. 

In my most dickhead tone, I say, “Stop giving me your googly eyes, Solvenson. You know how it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside when you do that.” 

“Fuck off, Oliver,” Nolan volleys back, looking away as he takes a long pull from his beer. As he lowers his bottle, he adds, “I know what you’re doing, anyway.” 

“Oh yeah, you do? Please tell me then, great sensei, what am I doing?”
