Jersey Six was left orphaned after a hit and run which left her living on the streets of Newark. This shattered her dreams of being any regular girl, having a diploma and going to school dances, all the girly things. She’s lived a non-existence life for eight years and then suddenly a guy calling himself Chris shows up and wants to form a friendship with her. Jersey isn’t interested in having any sort of relationship with anyone as she only has the energy to plod along as a lone ranger. However, Chris remembers the person he believes destroyed her future. They form an unlikely alliance which would seem unusual since her pent up anger…the injustice of losing her foster parents ignites feelings of vengeance. The problem is she needs to get close and sets out to destroy the world’s biggest rock star.

Jersey is a gutsy, tough young lady. Ooh boy, can she pack a punch! This poor girl has been through so much in her life that she came across as quite feral, well…that was how I envisioned her as I was reading. There are some dark elements in her past which made my heart ache. Damaged and angry, I had high hopes that things would get better but because of her determination to avenge the wrongdoings, I feared she would just keep walking into bad situations.

Chris is the guy who befriends Jersey. He’s badly disfigured due to a fire and also suffers from amnesia but slowly little pieces of his life unravel. Despite him being a bit of a mystery, the two of them are drawn together, but not in a romantic way. They snuggle and she feels protected, a totally new feeling for her. I loved their conversations; however, sometimes I worried there could possibly be a bit of manipulation there even though they seemed to be protective of each other.

Ian Cooper, the rock star. Jersey meets him by accident and soon realises he’s someone she needs to get close to if she’s going to figure out how their pasts could have possibly become unwittingly entangled. He’s easy to love, and his adoring fans and the people he works with do just that. Coop as jersey calls him, keeps his past very guarded. He’s every bit the hot star and I was instantly drawn to him. The chemistry between him and Jersey is very palpable and every sensual word oozed off the pages.

Blown away by Ms Ann’s words, this read is very different from her past works. It has darkness, mystery and sizzling chemistry with some scorching scenes. The unravelling of this story had me on the edge of my seat so-much-so that it hurt. Secrets and lies abound and when everything fell into place, I was left open-mouthed. Thrilling, entertaining and full of all kinds of drama, one of my favourite things was the playlist which accompanies the story. It fit perfectly and complemented Jersey Six very well. Long after reading, I still keep thinking of this story and listening to the playlist gives me a lump in my throat. Bravo to Ms Ann. Loved, loved everything written, even the music.

“We ate at the hotel.” Her lips twisted to the side. “Mind if I stick some stuff in my bag for later?”

A tiny wrinkle formed between Ian’s eyes, just below the long sweep of his black bangs. “There will be lots of food available later too. But…” he shrugged, leaning forward and resting his elbows on his knees “…take whatever you want.”

Jersey glanced over her shoulder at the food and the three other men in the room. She decided to wait a little while before shoving as much as possible into her bag like a free-for-all. “Thanks.” Jersey returned her attention to Ian. “So … you’re a singer. Like … are you a big deal?”

Every word she spoke seemed to feed his level of happiness. “Well …” He rubbed his chin, twisting his lips. “We play music. People like to listen to our music. But no … it’s not a big deal. We’re not saving lives or anything like that.”

She eyed him with suspicion for a few seconds. That smile of his didn’t feel worthy of complete trust. “Um … what exactly do you need me to do? What’s my job? They already took Chris. Will that big, bearded guy come for me too?” Jersey couldn’t remember his name.

“No.” Ian stood, pushing his elbows out from his shoulders, twisting side to side. “Tonight you are just going to watch the concert from backstage. Tomorrow night you’ll sell merchandise.”

“Drugs. You mean drugs, don’t you?”

Ian paused his stretching, letting his arms fall limp to his sides. “Merchandise—T-shirts, posters, keychains, phone cases, hats, guitar pics …”

“To who?”

“Fans.” Ian grinned. “Okay. I might have understated all of this to you … can you name a famous singer? Old or new. Doesn’t matter. Just a famous singer.”

“I had a foster parent who used to listen to Josh Groban.” Jersey gnashed her teeth, still feeling so much anger. Dena wasn’t just a foster parent; she was Jersey’s friend.

“Okay. Well, Josh has sold millions of records, and he’s a huge star in his genre of music. Thousands of people pack venues all over the world to see him sing live in concert. And they sell merchandise of his at those concerts.”

Jersey gazed unblinkingly at Ian as he scratched his jaw.

“Well, I sing a different genre of music, but I, too, travel the world, singing to sold-out concert venues, andI have people who sell my merchandise at these concerts.”

Jersey dropped her bag to her feet and planted her fists on her hips. “Listen, Coop. Stop talking down to me. I’m not an idiot. I know what a concert is. But earlier today you didn’t say what you did or what the job was you were offering. You bought a homeless person a hot dog and offered her a job. Of course, I’m going to think something sketchy might be involved.”

Tipping her chin up, she held her breath to puff out her chest, pretending the recent revelation of Ian Cooper being a famous singer didn’t faze her one bit. Inside, Jersey’s heart hammered into her ribcage, and her mind reeled trying to figure out the day’s events.

“Coop?” His lips twitched into a tiny grin.

“It’s short for Cooper.”

“Clearly.” Ian chuckled. “But my name is Ian. Everyone calls me Ian.”

“I busted the nose and jaw of a kid named Ian. He tried to stick his cock in my ass. I’ll call you Tom, Dick, or Harry, but I’m not calling you Ian because that makes me want to physically harm you.”

Ian’s eyebrows shot up his forehead as his head whipped back a few inches. “Coop it is.”

BLOG TOUR ~ THE MAN I NEED by Shanora Williams

There are things that women want, and things that women need.
I know deep down, with every fiber in my body, that I need Mr. Ward.

He started out as my landscape designer, but became so much more.
Now, my life is on the line while living with the devil himself. I have been torn down and broken, and I don’t think I can take anymore.

The man I need was never the one I married.
No, the man I need is the one I was never supposed to have. He’s the one who showed me gentleness, kindness, and true love.

Ward would put up a fight for me at any cost.
I know for a fact, I could be so much happier with him…

But when I come face-to-face with reality, I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to risk it all for someone I’ve just met, even if it seems like Mr. Ward and I are a match made in heaven.

Reviewed by Donna on behalf of KFF

The continuation of this very intense story begins with a prologue I’d kind of figured out to a certain degree in The Man I Want. When I turned the page to chapter one in The Man I Need, it starts off where events finished for poor Gabby Moore. Her life has been broken into tiny pieces and she isn’t sure how she’ll possibly carry on. She lives with a devil personified and deep down all she can think about is Mr Ward who could be her saviour, the man that she needs. But it’s complicated because he isn’t her husband. The scenes in the first part are so shocking my heart broke for Gabby and the horrid situation she found herself in. As I read on, I urged her to make a run for it and be strong. The first book was slow burn; this one packs a punch and goes straight for the jugular. My heart beat hard at the thought of what Gabby goes through.

Marcel Ward is like a knight in shining armour and Gabby needs him more than ever. However, it’s a woven web of drama, angst and overwhelming emotions in their plight. There’s a lot of content from domestic violence to adultery and rape. Many will say Gabby was wrong for getting involved with Marcel. I understood where she was coming from. He gave her courage and warmth, not to mention they’d had more formidable chemistry than she’d ever experienced with Kyle. I wanted him to get his comeuppance because he was a nasty control freak and quite frankly, didn’t deserve the love of his beautiful talented wife. Marcel isn’t without his baggage but oh boy, was he a great support network and his actions and words towards Gabby swoon-worthy.

Yet again Ms Williams gives a thrilling story and the Ward Duets’ epic conclusion was eventually how I’d hoped it would be. Did she put me through the wringer before I got to the outcome though! Anybody who hasn’t read this series is fortunate to have the follow up to dive straight into because the first one left me thirsty for more and will never be forgotten. I’ve never been through what Gabby had but to think about how this happens in the real world is harrowing. Bravo Ms Williams on writing something so real and hard-hitting, but also with romance and love.

It started as a simple search for a landscape designer…

I wanted a beautiful backyard for my new home and my neighbors suggested I look into Ward Landscaping & Design.

The owner had no pictures of himself on his website, just a portfolio of nice outdoor sitting areas, pools, and vibrant gardens that I’d always dreamed of having.

Of course I hired him.

I expected to meet an average guy, but Mr. Marcel Ward is far from your average man. He’s handsome, and well-built, and his smile—though a rare trait—is truly infectious.
He’s every woman’s dream—a handsome, older man who doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to create something beautiful all because of his passion for it.

Unfortunately that lucky woman can’t be me.
Although Mr. Ward tests my limits, quickens my breath, and makes my heart skip a beat when he’s around, I’ve promised to devote myself to my husband.

So why am I falling for a man I know I can’t have?

What can you expect?

– An Alpha Hero (who is a bit of an asshole 😉 )
– Super Steamy Scenes
– An Adorable Beagle Puppy
– SOOO MUCH ANGST

Gabby and Kyle Moore have only been married three months when they move into their beautiful dream home. Gabby wants to have a stunning backyard and her new neighbours suggest Ward Landscaping and Design. She sets about looking into the company she considers hiring and whilst there are no pictures of the owner, there’s a very impressive portfolio of previous works. Showing exactly what she has in mind, she decides to hire Mr. Ward. Gabby gets quite the surprise when she meets Marcel Ward. Gorgeous with an amazing smile, not to mention the physique of this man.

Every woman would fall over themselves for him. He takes Gabby’s breath away and even though he makes her heart skip a beat, she can never be close to him. This story is full of angst and I couldn’t help thinking there was a lot more to what I was reading. Things just weren’t always what they appeared to be. Lust and steaminess are in spades, but not overshadowing the fantastic tale being spun.

Marcel was a bit of a complex character. Whilst reading about his past, not only did I empathize with him, but my heart melted too. I wanted him to have a happy outcome and seriously, I couldn’t not warm to this majorly hot man whose sex appeal and tough exterior ooze off the pages. It was easy to see why he and Gabby were drawn to each other: their connection is totally forbidden, making it even more difficult. Kyle is a mysterious one, leading me to think something didn’t feel quite right. He’s hardworking and harps on about it quite a bit; having to fly back and forth between home and New York quite a lot. Yet again, my gut instinct just kept telling me to watch out for him with that air of arrogance about him. Absolutely loved the side characters, mainly Gabby’s best friend, Teagan.

The penmanship is cleverly put together and once you pick this book up, you’ll struggle to put it down. It draws you in like a spider’s web weaving around you. My goodness me, the last couple of chapters were pretty explosive. I had a feeling it was building up to something but wasn’t quite expecting what I got to learn. I can’t wait to find out what’s going to happen in book two, what their fate will be. As soon as I’d finished, I recommended it to my book buddies and friends from KFF one-clicked. I’m pretty certain they’ll enjoy this slow-burn romance as much as I did and looking forward to discussing this fabulous story with them. I’m being mindful about not giving anything away but I have to say that if it were possible, I would definitely have given more than five stars to this epic read. Thrilling angst, passion, deceit, lies and a rollercoaster of emotions are just some words to describe TMICH.

“Let me know if you need anything, Marcel.”

“Sure will, Gabby.”

I grab the door handle, but not without noticing the smirk on his face.

When I close the doors, I can’t help sneaking a peek as I put my tea back in the fridge. Mr. Ward—Marcel—is standing with a shovel in hand. He stabs it into the ground, leaving it standing upright, and then he crosses one arm over the other, reaches down for the hem of his shirt, and pulls it up, right over his head.

With the sun beaming directly on him, of course he stands out. His tan skin is unmarked minus one long scar right below his right rib. He’s sculpted but not bulky, almost like he does just as much cardio as lifting to get his lean, toned appearance. His abs lead down to a sharp vee that disappears beneath his belt buckle and jeans. A few hairs jump out from beneath the buckle as he grabs the handle of the shovel.

As he snatches the shovel out, he pauses midway. My eyes travel up to find his, and it’s then I realize I’ve been staring. He narrows his eyes a bit, but a smug smile lightly tugs at the corners of his lips.

“Oh, shit!”

I back away, bumping into the nearest counter edge. When I hear one of the men yell something, I look again, glad Marcel has moved away from the windows of the doors to tend to the person. I hurry back upstairs, and this time I don’t look back, even though a small part of me is dying to see those abs one more time.

INTERNATIONAL PLAYER

Add to your TBR today!

 

 

Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury.

Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down.

The first female friend I ever had.

And she might jyst be the first woman I ever fall in love with.

When an emergency means she needs my help running her family’s charity, I’m happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world—taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out.

The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I’m not a man to avoid, that we’re not as unsuited as she believes.

She sees herself as the book-reading, science-loving introvert while I’m the dangerous, outgoing, charmer.

She thinks I love parties and people whereas she prefers pajamas and a takeaway.

What she doesn’t realize is that I like everything about her–the way her smile lights up a room, how her curves light up my imagination, and especially the way her lips taste when coated with tequila.

She’s the first woman I ever fell in love with. I just need to know if she could ever love me too.

Noah has always been labelled as a player and he’s fine with that. He always manages all right with the women he encounters although Truly Harbury is different. She turned him down all those years ago but they became best friends. Truly is one half of twin and her sister Abigail married Noah’s best friend, Rob and that’s where Noah and Truly met. Noah has been away for four years developing a business that he sold off and ended up with a very large amount of money. He comes back to the UK and until he decides what his next challenge is, he stays with Abigail and Rob. However, Truly is in knots about this as she had a crush on him and doesn’t want that resurfacing. She well knows he isn’t the settling down kind.

Tragedy strikes and Truly is left with looking after the charity. Truly is not a very confident person hiding behind her geek persona and doing the business number crunching. On the other hand, her sister is the more people person going to big charity events and enrolling companies to back them. Noah offers to help and he introduces her to the glitz and glamour of the business side. He sees so much more in Truly and could see himself falling in love with her.

Truly is a smart woman who sees herself as nerdy, living in her sister’s shadows. I found her putting herself down quite a lot and she never came across as confident. Noah seems to bring out her confidence. He’s confident, handsome and has an overwhelming drive to challenge himself a lot and do some pretty extreme things.

It was clear they had deep feelings, they just had their own ideas about what the other would or wouldn’t want from their future. Told in a dual point of view, it’s a favourite of mine since I love seeing what each character is thinking. I liked them both a lot but wanted to bang their heads together more than once! International Player is a slow burn romance and does entail some steamy scenes that Ms. Bay always delivers with her creativity of hot alpha males. Although it took me a while to get into the story, I really enjoyed it.

I did find Truly not believing in herself and Abigail being the better of the two a little frustrating. I loved the interaction between Truly and Noah when the self-doubt stopped and also liked Rob who’s Truly brother-in-law. Rob and Noah’s friendship was funny at times and reading about their friendship was a joy. Lol, poor Rob was henpecked by Abigail! If a love story that takes time for the protagonists to realise what’s in front of them and friends-to-lovers is your thing, I highly recommend Louise’s stand-alone.

In, two, three, out, two. Shit. I tried again. In, two, three, out, two, three. It wasn’t helping. My heart was hammering against my chest, my palms were sweaty, and images of hundreds and hundreds of faces staring at me flashed into my head. I ignored the knock on my office door. I was too concerned about what was happening to me. Was it possible to have a heart attack at twenty-eight? “Truly,” a familiar, male voice called. I couldn’t look up. Couldn’t even open my eyes. Warm hands covered my knees and body heat radiated in front of me.

“Are you okay? Take a breath.” What was Noah doing here?

I nodded, still counting my breath. As if he was familiar with the technique, he began counting along with me. “Out, two, three. In, two, three. Out, two, three.”

His voice was calming. The counting hadn’t worked when I’d done it alone, but hearing him counting too helped me settle into a rhythm.

Eventually, his hands slid from my knees, and I sat up and opened my eyes, right into his.

“Are you okay?” he asked, his brow

furrowed.

I was such an idiot. A mess. And this was why Noah and I had only ever been friends. He was used to seeing me in no makeup with a smear of kung pao chicken on my face. And now I was panicking about a meeting that he would think nothing of. Yes, Noah only ever saw me at my absolute worst.

“What are you doing here?” I asked. I didn’t want him to see me like this.

“Do you want some water?” He stood and poured me a glass of sparkling water from the bottle on my desk.

“Thanks.” I took a sip and sat back in my chair.

“I came to talk to you. Apologize if I seemed harsh last night. I’m sorry if I made this worse, Truly.”

I cleared my throat. “I’m fine. Just a little . . .” I watched as he slid into the chair opposite my desk, his long legs unfurling in front of him. “I just have a lot to do.”

He nodded, steepling his fingers. “And I’m here to help.”

Beautiful and mysterious she possessed little more. . . Than a dangerous and troublesome past.

THE MISTER, the highly anticipated new love story from #1 New York Times bestseller E L James is available now!

the mister hi res 1.22.19.jpg

London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.

But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past. Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? And can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own?

From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, The Mister is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and it was my first taste of erotic romance. Once you have one clicked via Amazon, there are suggestions of other books of this genre. I discovered there were lots of like-minded people that had read them and that was my entrance into the social media book world. Ms. James has orchestrated a lot of friendships unwittingly through her written word and revolutionized the intimate side of romance in our books. I was absolutely excited to discover that we were going to get a brand new story and characters for The Mister. When I saw the gorgeous cover, I was chomping at the bit to learn more about the story and so the countdown began.

The Mister is a very passionate love story set in three different locations, London, Cornwall, and Eastern Europe. It is a modern-day classic Cinderella-style story. Maxim Trevelyan lives in London and has aristocratic connections and a lot of money. The good looking bachelor very rarely sleeps alone and he just is living it up because he can afford to. Tragedy strikes and he finds himself having to sit up and take a bit of responsibility and he struggles to accept his fate.
Maxim doesn’t see another big challenge head-on in the form of the beautifully talented Alessia Demachi. She’d recently arrived in England and has a dangerous past. Maxim is drawn to the musically gifted beauty and develops a longing for her that he has never felt before. Danger awaits, but can Maxim protect and save the mysterious Alessia even though he harbours his own secrets?

The Mister was every bit thrilling from the prologue right up until the last chapter. It was full of passion, angst and there’s a certain amount of suspense to it. Thrilling scenes had me on the edge of my seat and in my mind, I was shouting out to the characters as if they could hear me; I suppose a bit like we do when watching an action-packed movie. I loved the chemistry and the banter between Maxim and Alessia and they had me smiling on a few occasions. I have to highlight the supporting characters who were developed brilliantly.

I couldn’t put this book down and still listen to the well-put-together playlist. I’ve since downloaded the audio which was highly recommended by my lovely friend from KFF. I would really love to see more from Maxim and Alessia in the future as I really took to them very warmly. I have to mention that I was very fortunate enough to attend the evening with EL and it was a marvelous event having a bit of insight into the production of the book.

I also took a stroll to see the public house mentioned in the story as well as a walk down to Chelsea Embankment where part of the story is set. It really was fascinating to get the visual of the setting. I particularly enjoyed having parts of the settings that I was familiar with, for example, Brentford. I grew up not far from there and have a few male members of my family that are Brentford FC fans. Also, my company was mentioned, those snippets spot on. I gave this a five-star rating because I enjoyed it so much and the fact it was set in the UK was an added bonus. Once again, I’ve been a huge fan, but I must say something I never thought I would The Mister is a hell of a lot more! I can’t recommend reading this love story enough and do listen to the playlist. It really helps to set the scene for the imagination and reading experience.

never mix business with pleasure.

Ronnie Gunn is one gutsy and determined woman who works at World Class Wrestling. She’d met Wyatt Douglas two years ago and has secretly had a huge crush on him. The moment he got off his motorbike and showed his charismatic smile and good looks, she was hooked. Jess, her brother and Wyatt’s best friend, throws cold water on her short-lived notion of any kind of romance. Things are made awkward when they have to work together with the wrestling storylines entwining. First rule, don’t mix business with pleasure; however, Ronnie finds this increasingly difficult when they spend a lot of time together.

I liked Ronnie’s fearlessness but underneath it all, I could understand why she was harbouring such strong feelings. Wyatt is equally attracted to Ronnie and has wanted her just as much, although he knows she’s stubborn and would build up any walls allowing him to be with her. Furthermore, Wyatt’s full of confidence and determined to fight for her. The only thing these two have to worry about is Ronnie’s brother, Jesse. He would be none to happy about his little sister and best friend getting together. Gosh, the chemistry and sexual tension was like a pressure cooker waiting to explode between the two!

Rumble is the second book in the Wrestling duet and despite being a stand-alone, I would highly recommend reading Tussle first. Jesse Gunn’s brother, Ronnie and his lady love, Lilah make cameo appearances. These two fabulous characters were in Tussle, so it was great catching up a little and finding out how life was treating them. I love the World Class Wrestling theme. It brings something different to the vast amount of sports romances out there plus it was back down memory lane, watching wrestling on a Saturday afternoon with my dad when I was a child. Mr. Chance yet again shows his diversity and you could tell from his words that sport is his passion.

I was enthralled from the first page right up until the very last one. Rumble had everything to keep me entertained; funny, romantic, steamy and slow burn. The characters are well-developed and definitely have that likeability factor. I wanted to know where the author would take me and a couple of surprises along the way were a welcome addition to the story. Such an epic thrilling read, I even played the group mentioned in Rumble just to get into the participants moment. We all know this is a sport where they like to make a grand entrance. A very enjoyable story and worthy of the five stars given.

Cruel Fortune is the second in the Cruel trilogy and picks up a year after an incident which happened in Cruel Money. Natalie is now a successful bestselling author and finds herself going back to the place she never thought she’d step into again. It’s only for a short while before her book’s released and then she’ll be out of there and back home in Charleston. The only issue is she’s struggling to write at home. She’d lost her muse previously; the hot alpha enigmatic man, Penn Kensington. Natalie would sacrifice seeing him again to have the words flow freely but it’s possible she’ll find a new muse in the Big Apple with lots of potential stories in such lively surroundings. After all, she knows she’d never belonged in the world of filthy rich people who will scheme to get what they want or give a second thought as to whom they’d step on. Obviously, even though it’s a large city, Natalie finds herself bumping into the Crew, a bunch of ruthless people that had hurt her in a spectacular way. However, new friendships and a relationship are formed regardless of her being a little apprehensive. In the back of her mind, she isn’t sure about people’s intentions towards her.

“Your passion is my favorite thing about you. Most people around here lose it, contain it, leash it. You set yours free and it lights you up.”

I can’t go into this story too much without potentially giving loads away. But let me tell you this; it’s a rollercoaster of a ride full of drama, scheming and abounding angst. I mean angst with a capital A! Brilliantly executed, I was on the edge of my seat watching what felt like a car crash in slow motion. I couldn’t stop reading to find out what was going to happen; especially some of the decisions and actions key characters took. I couldn’t figure out who was sincere and I certainly knew who wasn’t, that’s for sure. I mustn’t forget the chemistry and passion in Cruel Fortune. Wow, one scene was intensely hot!

The writing and storytelling were absolutely outstanding and there’s a brilliantly put together playlist which if you listen to periodically as well as reading, you’ll feel like you’re living the story. When an author can transport you right there in the moment, it’s evident the writing is cleverly put together. I was kept wondering if certain characters’ actions had a lot more going on then what I was being led to believe, and intrigued as to where Ms. Linde was taking the story. I have so many books to read and it was with trepidation that I picked up my kindle to read another since this thrilling book was still stuck in the back of my mind. The ending definitely left me thirsty for more. The only clue I will give is I think the next and final part of this trilogy will have the readers even more on edge as the closing scenes were fighting talk. Bravo for a fabulous story Ms. Linde.

One of my favourite quotes is:
“Fake it till you make it. Fake it till you just don’t give a …..”
