Title: Cocky Playboy
Author: Sloane Howell & Alex Wolf
This is my first by these authors and it was pretty good. Aside from the misleading title, hes not a playboy and never claims to be, noone else claims he is either so I’m not sure where that came from.
Either way, Decker is large and in charge. He’s kicking ass and taking names and continues to do so throughout the book.
It’s a light and easy read with lots and lots of hot and heavy moments. The perfect steamy weekend read. There are a couple of bits I thought would become more that didn’t and an unexpected turn or two. All in all a good story!
Title: Until I Fall
Author: Claudia Burgoa
This is a standalone story.
This is my first book by this author and I really liked the cover! The book inside is pretty good too!
Lots of action, emotional suspense, girls that have got her back, guys that gave got his. Fun, friends, family and tattoos, what more could you need?
Anderson is all or nothing, he’s larger than life and finding his way through his. Aspen is lost, although she doesn’t know it, and fighting her own self, amongst others.
This was a great story that kept the pages turning, a fab read!
Author: Jocelyn Westbrook
This is a standalone book I bought ages ago and has been sat in my kindle to read for ever. So with a little break in the schedule I had a scour through my kindle and was taken by the cover. It must have sounded good otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it, and it looked light and easy to read so I figured it should be time I give it a go.
And I’m so glad I did. This is a fab light easy read. Nothing too in depth, no massive emotional trauma (for me, not the characters), just a story about falling in love in the most unlikely places.
I will be looking to see if there are any inter connecting stories!!
Title: Lost Boy
Author: M Robinson
This book is standalone.
I dont know why I’ve waited so long to read this. There was so much angst and emotion in Road to Nowhere and Ends Here that I was worried what would happen for Noah and how his HEA would come. I should have known there was no reason to worry with M on the case!
For me, this story was a little unbalanced and I would have liked to have seen more of Noah. While we have seen plenty of him in and around in previous books it would have been nice to have seen some of those things from his perspective.
There is so much that has shaped Noah, so much more than just her leaving, and it felt like everything he has gone through has been put to one side. Now, dont get me wrong, there is so much emotional baggage from both of them this must have been a really difficult book to level out and find story within the heartbreak.
I don’t know, I didn’t particularly like our heroine either 🤦♀️the ending was perfect and all tied in beautifully but the story didn’t quite hit the mark for me.
Title: Fesr Us
Author: BB Reid
This is the third in the Broken Love series. You need to read Fear Me and Fear You before starting this book.
Now, I’ve read Fear Me and Fear You before. But have recently done a re-read of Fear Me for the Romance Readers Book Box UK. Once again I was absolutely sucked in to this amazing world and read the first two books in a breath.
But I stopped at that last time. The heartbreak and the intensity that is Kieran had taken its toll and I couldn’t commit to any more of the series. But this time, I was prepared, I knew what was coming, I knew most of the pieces of my heart would be put back together.
So I headed through in to Fear Us, not prepared for Keenan. Not prepared at all. It was just as raw and brutal as the first two books. The happy go lucky boy I knew and loved is gone, replaced by a bitter resentful spiteful man.
Sheldon was, wow, she was great. I loved being able to see things from her perspective, he isn’t *just* the bad guy and seeing the irredeemable explained was amazing.
This book does not answer all the questions 🤦♀️ there are loads of things left out ready for the next story. I hope to see what’s going on with Dash or Q or so many of the secondary characters. They’re almost as important as our main ones now, they’re well bedded in and I can’t wait to see who comes next!
Title: Dance or Die
Author: AE Murphy
Fantastic, loved it. A gripping page turner that I struggled to put down, darn you life and the things we must do.
I loved the story line, the characters were amazing and the chemistry was off the charts! If you’re looking for something a little different, a little dark, a little edgy, then this is the book for you!
Title: Love You Now
Author: M. Robinson
This is the second of a duet and you need to read Hated You Then first as this book follows straight on.
I dont know if there has just been a too big a gap between the books, maybe I needed a re read before I started but it didn’t have quite the same draw as Pierced Hearts.
It’s hard not to compare the two duets, not just because they link from one to the other but also because they are so similar in style. For me, Jackson and Harleys tale, in book one, took a back seat to Jackson and what went on in Pierced Hearts.
This book, however, was much more *their* story. It was great to see some more of Harley in this story and there are some fantastic moments from her! The bike thing, totally the Harley Jameson I have pictured in my minds eye. Very Creed and Mia. There are some amazing highs in this books, but as to be expected there are some definite lows too.
I found myself desperate to shout “just talk to him”, “open your mouth and tell her how you feel” repeatedly throughout this book. And the back and forth with timelines was quite confusing.
Luke and Creed were fantastic though, it was lovely to see that some things never change and the next generation are carrying on his legacy. How this plays out is one of very few ways that I can see Creed ever accepting a guy in his baby girls life.
So the crux of it for me is that I liked it
