Missing You…

Boy, have I missed this…missed you guys. Missed writing about the wonderful books I’ve read and raving about them or writing about the awful books I’ve read and wondering who actually agreed to publish it. Anyway, I wanted to check in and let you all know I haven’t forgotten about you and I have been reading although what I have been reading has been assigned to me by “The Hot Professor” whose class is currently kicking my ass but has provided me with some wonderful American Novels. The latest novel is Portnoy’s Complaint, freaking hilarious! This guys obsession with masturbation is down right hilarious yet disturbing. He shoots his load in his own eye for crying out loud!!

darkershadesI also wanted to discuss Fifty Shades Darker. I didn’t write a review on the movie when I originally saw it because, well because I didn’t really care for it. I wanted to love it, I simply just didn’t. A lot of what I desperately wanted to see wasn’t there and I was disappointed with most but absolutely adored the soundtrack. Anywho, I had the opportunity to watch the “Unrated Version” with deleted scenes and fell completely in love with the movie (thanks, Terry D.) Those extra 10-20mins made an absolute difference in my opinion of the movie. My sister, who’s never read the books but has seen the movies, agreed. She says it gave her a better understanding of what was going on and why Lelia was stalking Anastasia. I won’t go into the deleted scenes because that would be spoiling it but I will say some scenes get very hot and sexy and I have a new fondness for pool tables. 

Well, that’s all for now. Coming soon are reviews for

  • Co-Wrecker by Meghan Quinn
  • Until Now by Laura Ward
  • Mister Moneybags by Vi and Penelope ***I love their books***
  • The Gravity of Us by Brittany Cherry

Now it may not be in this order but these are on my immediate TBR list. Also, I will be in the South of France from 6/1/2017 to 7/3/2017 so my posts may be few and far between during that time but I plan to come back with some fantastic gifts for raffle!! Speaking of a raffle, how about I give away a copy of Fifty Shades Darker? It releases on 5/9/2017 via DVD/Blu-Ray if you’d like a copy, like my Facebook page and leave a comment below with your favorite Fifty Shades moment (book or movie) and I will choose a winner Friday 5/5/2017!

 

Review & Release…

More than a Feeling final coverBlurb: From the award-winningauthor of TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT comes the final story in her red-hot Rock Star Romance series, about a loner rocker finding his perfect duet.

When Cooper Hood left Snowberry, Montana ten years ago, he swore he’d never go back to the town that painted him with the same brush as his addict mother. But right in the middle of his band’s national tour he gets a call to come home: his mom’s got a whopper of a secret to reveal.

Daisy Charbonneau’s in trouble. The talent she hired for her resort’s annual Huckleberry Festival just bailed on her, and she’s desperate to find a replacement act. Luck turns her way when she discovers her high school crush is back in town–and he happens to be a rock star.

As they work together, a crush deepens into so much more, but who falls in love in two weeks?

Especially when Cooper’s never coming back to town, and Daisy’s never going to leave it.

Review: Here we go again with me reading books out of order. Yup folks I did it again, except this time I manage to read the LAST book in this rocker series. Although I must say this was wonderful as a standalone. There are references to people from the other books but enough that you don’t feel like you are missing anything. So, if you are starting with this I don’t think it will be that big of a deal.

Now,  Cooper is the man! I am completely smitten with him and in my head he is totally every bit of the hot rocker he is on paper. I only had one beef with Cooper and that was I wanted MORE of him!! More More More! The story takes us back to Coop’s hometown where we get snippets of his life before he was a big rock star. This equally intrigued and saddened me. Coop had it rough and “watching” him try to come to grips with the way his past collided into his present is what made this book so good for me. I felt and understood his struggle even though it wasn’t my own. The heroine is also amaze-balls. Daisy isn’t a weak pushover and she stands her ground throughout the novel. She’s repeatedly met with opposition and not only takes it in stride she busts her butt to overcome it. She’s vulnerable when she needs to be but tough as nails when it’s time for a fight. That just shows you that the chemistry between Daisy and Cooper is as electrified as his guitar riffs.

So, 4.5 stars guys! And I am officially begging Ms. Kelly to write Coops “prequel” I would absolutely LOVE that. Grab your copy via Amazon here and below is the reading order of this series

Rock Star Series_Complete

Also, Penelope and Vi decided to drop Mr. Moneybags on us early! Look at me calling two of my favorite authors by their first names like I know them personally LOL. Of course, I bought this as soon as the email hit my box that it was available for order. I love these ladies and plan to start this one Thursday. I have to put it off until then although it is thoroughly paining me to do so. Like…my ass is severely chapped that I must read Portnoy’s Complaint instead of some hot steamy smut. Damn Responsibility *hmph*

Blurb: I met Bianca in an elevator.

She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck.

The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed.

She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment.

Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over-educated, silver- spooned men who didn’t appreciate the simple things in life.

So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I canceled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn’t want it to end.

I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email.

I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot.

I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into.

I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her.  

And she was falling for two men.

Only, both men were me.

And when she found out, we were both going to lose her.

Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for what came after.

 

All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

EXCERPT

MEET BIANCA

I sighed audibly.  Are we even moving?  It was seriously the slowest elevator I’d ever taken.  Frustrated, and maybe a bit anxious to get the interview over with, I took another shot at the elevator panel.  Again, pressing the button repeatedly, I groaned, “Come on.  I’m already freakin’ late.”

I breathed a sigh of relief when the car seemed to finally pick up speed.  But then, it jolted to an abrupt stop, and the elevator went pitch black.

“Well now you’ve gone and broken the damn thing,” a deep voice said from behind me.  Startled, I jumped and bobbled my cell phone in the dark, which resulted in it falling.  From the sound of it smashing against the floor, I knew it had broken.  

“Shit!  Look what you made me do.” I bent over and patted the floor, but I couldn’t find it.  “Can you at least give me some light so I can find my phone?”

“It would be my pleasure.”

“Thank you,” I huffed.

“If I had a cell phone on me.”

“Are you kidding?  You don’t have a cell phone on you?  Who walks around without their cell phone?”

“Maybe you should try it. If you weren’t so obsessed with yours, we wouldn’t be in this predicament.”

I stood, and my hands went to my hips. “How so?”

“Well, you were so busy typing away on your phone, you didn’t even notice another passenger was in the car with you.”

“And?”

“Had you seen me, you wouldn’t have jumped hearing my voice and broken your phone.  Then we would have had light, and you would be able to see that elevator panel well enough to push that button another twenty or thirty times. I’m sure that would’ve helped.”

I felt the man moving around behind me.  

“What are you doing?”

When he answered, his voice came from a different place.  It was to my left and beneath me.  “I’m on the floor looking for your cell phone.”

It really was pitch dark.  I couldn’t see a thing, but I felt the air move, and I knew he must have stood back up.  

“Put your hand out.”

“You’re going to put my phone in it, right?”  

“No, I’ve taken down my pants and I’m going to stick my dick in it.  Christ, you’re really a bitch, aren’t you?”

Thinking he couldn’t see me, I smiled at his sarcasm and put out my hand.  “Just give me my phone.”

MEET DEX

Wow. My little ball player was quite the fox.

I’d only seen her from the back before the lights went out. Now, I was staring into her beautiful, big brown eyes, feeling like this elevator mishap wasn’t such a bad thing after all.

She cleared her throat. “The lights came back, but we’re still stuck.”

I clicked on some of the buttons. “Seems that way. But this is a step in the right direction. I bet this thing will be moving in no time.”

And by this thing moving, I do not mean my dick, although I could have sworn I felt it twitch when she just licked her beautiful full lips.

Do that again.

Fuck.

She is beautiful.

My eyes travelled down the length of her body then back up again, loving how the small buttons on her conservative blouse formed a path up to her delicate neck. I wouldn’t have minded sucking on that skin.

Maybe I could entice her to play hooky with me.

“Where are you headed once we get out of here?” I asked.

“The thirty-fourth floor,” she said.

What?

What is she doing going up to my floor?

I know she doesn’t work for me. I would have remembered that face, those eyes.

“What kind of business you have going on up there?”

“I actually have the pleasure of interviewing Mister Moneybags himself.”

My stomach sank.

Ohhhh.

This didn’t bode well for me.

I swallowed then cocked my head to the side and played dumb. “Who?”

“The elusive Dexter Truitt. He’s the CEO of Montague Enterprises. They occupy the entire top floor.”

Trying to seem like I was not seriously about to lose my shit, I asked, “Why do you call him Mister Moneybags?”

“I just picture him to be this crabby, money-hungry asshole, I guess. Sounds like a fitting name. Of course, I don’t actually know him.”

“Why do you think that way about him, then?”

“I have my reasons.”
