Review: Riveted by Jay Crownover

Title: Riveted
By: Jay Crownover
Series: Saints of Denver #3
My Copy: Ebook from Publisher
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 


Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael's life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she’s done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that's become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she's going hunting for him...even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.

Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it's time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying.

When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he's all wrong for you.



I freaking love Jay Crownover.  Her books, her characters, her writing makes me so happy inside my heart and soul.

Riveted was extremely riveting! (oh, I just did that!)  I was captured in the first page by Dixie, whose light and wonderfulness just jump off the pages.  Knowing her parent's and sister's beautiful love stories made her crave her own, so much so that she put herself out there online to find Mr. Right, even though her Mr. Right was working at the same bar that she currently waitressed for.  Church only interacted with Dixie if customers got too rowdy but that didn't mean he didn't notice her beauty and positive personality. 

This story is light verses darkness; Dixie being the light and Church being the darkness.  He feels that all of those that he has loved have passed away and that Dixie’s light should never ever be blown out so he stays back.  While he pushes her away, Dixie fights to show him just how much he is worth because she can see that his heart is pure and capable of loving; that he just needs a little light and a push in the right direction.  After being called home, Church asks Dixie to attend to solidify the lie he told to his family but he realizes that he bit off more than he could chew. This is when the story gets more interesting.  Church feels the pull of Dixie’s goodness on his heart and he is finding that it is harder and harder to resist.  But he tries to resists even more when he realizes that somehow both of them have found some dangerous times.


On a personal note, Church, wowzers!  I want to clone him and make him my own.  In fact, where are beakers because that is exactly what I am going to do!

Review: Wicked Charming by Nazarea Andrews

Title: Wicked Charming
By: Nazarea Andrews
My Copy: Ebook from Publisher
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

He’s at the top of the world.
He’s rich, sought after, and in control.
And he’s bored.
A string of one-night stands have left Samul Charming increasingly dissatisfied. When his mother pushes him to settle down, his best friends come up with a brilliant plan:
Audition the submissive at The Kingdom.
The problem is, Charm knows who he wants: the only girl to challenge him, while submitting as naturally as breathing.
But he can’t have her.
With the entire club watching and his parents expecting him to settle down, Charm decides to settle.
But love in the Kingdom is never simple and it is never painless.
And Charm is about to be reminded of that

We all know of my love for Nazarea Andrews and you might not know of my love for fairy tales so if you take the two and smush them together, whadda get? Happiness.  Pure happiness.

Wicked Charming tells the tale of Samul Charming, the heir to the pharmaceutical throne that he wants nothing to do with.  His specialty is dominating in his co-owned club and his dream is to collar the perfect sub.  So who is to show up, our very own Cinderella but with a dirty twist.

At only a novella length, N does a wonderful job setting up Samul and Celeste's characters.  Something about Samul and his longing for the perfect girl, and once he finds her, she runs through his brain non-stop, made me want to just love him.   Something else about his naughty behavior made me love him even more.  And Celeste is just as adorable as one could be.  She intrigues Charming more than any other woman he has ever met but she feels as though she would never be enough for him.

N also perfectly gets us hooked onto the other gents that co-own the club with Charming: Beast and Wolf (yep, more fairy tales!)  Seriously, these dudes seem hot!  We get enough information about them to make them mysterious and intriguing but not enough to spoil their upcoming stories.  N, oh how I hate you and love you (but love you way more than hate :) )

Release Blitz: The Cad and the Co-Ed by Penny Reid & L.H. Conway

The Cad and The Co-Ed, an all-new romantic comedy from Penny Reid & L.H. Cosway is LIVE

thecadandco-edcover


THE CAD
Bryan Leech is a cad.
Or, he *was* a cad.
No one is quite certain.
Once the quintessential playboy, Bryan claims he’s done with wild parties and weekend benders. No more one night stands leading to mornings he can’t remember; no more binges and blackouts; no more exploits plastered all over the tabloids and rag sheets. According to Bryan, he’s cleaning up his act.
The only problem is, no one believes him.
THE CO-ED
Eilish Cassidy never thought she’d be a mother at nineteen or still in college at twenty-four. Cut off from every member of her family except her favorite cousin, she’s finally managed to put her life back together. Stronger and wiser, Eilish enters her last semester of university determined to stand on her own. Now she just needs to find an internship.
The only problem is, her best option—by far—places her directly in the path of her son’s father, and he doesn’t remember her at all.
THE PLAN
Bryan is determined to prove he’s changed. Eager to settle down with the right woman, he’s got his sights set on the gorgeous redhead who seems terribly familiar.
Eilish is determined to hide her secret. She’ll do anything to keep her child safe, even if that means ignoring her own wishes and desires.
But what happens when Bryan starts to remember? And what will it take for Bryan to convince the girl he forgot that she’s unforgettable?

Review: A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart

Title: A Thousand Letters
By: Staci Hart
My Copy: Ebook from Publisher
The BookWhisperer's Rating:

Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.
 
I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine: he left, and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing, taking me with them.
 
But now he’s back.
 
I barely recognize the man he’s become, but I can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid.
 
Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances, he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if I’d said yes all those years ago, he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different, we would have had a chance.
 
One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey brought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.
 
What a glorious book!  Everything about the characters, the plot, all of it; it was just glorious. 
 
I felt the love, the hatred, the passion, and the resentment oozing off the pages when Elliot and Wade were in the same room.  All the emotions one could have were felt regarding their past relationship and their broken one now.  This doesn’t include the tear-jerking story of Wade’s father sudden illness.  This throws Wade in Elliot back into each other’s lives and releases all sorts of chaos; some bad and some beautiful.
 
I would say that my favorite part throughout the book was the development of Elliot and her strength.  So sweet and loving, Elliot cares for her niece and nephew and stands by her friends through thick and thin but she has one (somewhat) flaw…letting people walk all over her (I’m looking at you Mary and her dad.)  And this (somewhat) flaw is so necessary to the story.  Reading that Elliot realizes that it is the problem of the person, not her, that puts her down really struck a chord with me.  Why fight when nothing is going to change a person and slowly Elliot realizes that fighting doesn’t have to happen but making your voice be heard does have to happen. I literally cheered!
 
Such a beautiful story is contained within these pages and I encourage to you read them. To give you a little push, I leave you with this:
 
“My heart has been yours as long as it’s been beating.  It’ll be yours until its beats its last.”

About Staci Hart:

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life: a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, even though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.

From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, cleaning, or designing graphics.

Review: Singe by Aly Martinez

Title: Singe
By: Aly Martinez
My Copy: Ebook from Publisher
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

She was my nightmare. Every time I closed my eyes, I watched her fall into that inferno. Over and over, I failed to save her.

I hadn’t been able to reach her, and the guilt only burned hotter over time. Four years later, I was the unreachable one.

Heroes aren’t always saints. Sometimes, we’re nothing more than jaded sinners driven by sleepless nights and hearts full of darkness.

And then I met her. She was a dreamer who managed to soothe my scars and heal my wounds.

But, as the flames closed in around us, I feared I wasn’t the right man to save her. That is until I realized she was the one woman I’d burn the world down to protect.


And she does it again!  Seriously, so, so, good. It was possibly everything I wanted and more in a book and I devoured it within days.  I just couldn't get enough of Jude and Rhion.  I couldn’t get enough of the secondary characters; all of those men that Jude works with seem insanely wonderful.  I can’t wait to read more about them.

Jude meets Rhion in an unfortunate event.  While responding to a call, Jude drives up to a house fire where he spots a woman trapped in the upper level.  Saving her doesn’t work out as planned and nightmares haunt him for years afterwards. Then while taking a job in a new city, he meets Rhion and truths are revealed.

These two characters were just as destructive as they were amazing together. Jude is an overprotective and possessive alpha male who knows what he wants and gets it.  His problem is that while he wants Rhion, badly, he doesn’t feel worthy of her.  Rhion is just as broken as Jude but in her own way.  Stuck in constant fear, she has hired the services of Guardian Protection and finds herself in the presence of Jude, a hero from the past.

Jude is the alpha-y of the alphas and would fit perfectly in a Kristen Ashley book.  Less words, more action, extreme possessiveness and this all worked for him.  He was perfect!  He knew how to be professional and protective when needed and he also knew how to be possessive and hot when the clock struck 5pm.  (And let me just say, that scene….wowza!)


So this book is a must and to prove it, I will leave you with this… “Love rarely makes a man smile.  Especially if said man is me and he has to deal with a crazy woman like you.  That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t burn the world down for you.  Extinguish an entire species.  And then place their ashes at your feet if it meant you’d smile…”
