Review: Love Resisted by Maria Macdonald

I was given Love Resisted (Entwined Hearts #2) by Maria Macdonald as an ARC it was a great book.  It picks up where entwined hearts 1 left off.  This is Soph and Saul’s story and they have some dark and twisted past they need to get past if they want to have a future.  I loved how when they finally decided to get together they tried to let it all go.  I am loving this author and can’t wait to read Dane’s book this is 5 stars all the way.

Sophie Rawlings has been the party girl for years. Drowning herself in everything but the one man she truly loves. She’s pushed her feelings deep down, knowing he doesn’t return them. The only other man to ever make her feel has suddenly become part of her self-appointed family and she’s not sure where that leaves her. Having been attacked recently, she’s sworn off guys for good.

So what will she do when she suddenly becomes the centre of attention?

What’s worse, is that not all attention is good. Sometimes the wrong attention can be life-altering…sometimes the wrong attention can extinguish the life you lead in the blink of an eye.

Excerpt #1

Well, there you have it. Shelby's in a corset. I simply shake my head, wondering what lies on the ladder-rung below this one. I've been watching her long before I needed to start surveillance, and I saw her step steadily down one tiny notch at a time since I was assigned her case those few months ago. Watching isn't stalking if I'm her assigned guardian angel, right? I shake my head at myself again. Since then, she's gone from sweet and almost virginal to coming to bars like a walking train wreck.

Excerpt #2

“I want to hear you come,” I command heatedly into her neck. Shelby lets go of the last bit of her self-control, and lets herself moan loudly as her pleasure builds to ultimate release. Her entire body tightens as she climaxes with a loud, near-shout at the heated explosion of every nerve. With no more need for restraint, I ride her heavily until my own climax sounds loudly from deep in my chest. The force is stronger than anything I’ve ever experienced. As we lay near-panting on the bed, I kiss her neck lightly and in total sweetness, because that’s what her body begs for. I’m determined to offer command, but only as her body asks. I cross her wrists over her head and she leaves them there without me having to tell her. Once again I’m astounded by this woman’s intelligence. I offer her every tenderness as I kiss and caress her entire body, refusing to break our moment.

Mother of Two Boys...
My husband and I have been married for 17 years and are blessed with two amazing young men. They are 10 and 12 right now, and both are on very different parts of the autism spectrum. I’ve learned so much being their mom and I feel pretty lucky to have become part of a community of loving, understanding people.

If you’d like to meet my oldest son, watch Big Bang Theory and shake hands with Sheldon. Those two are so similar, straight down to the fake laugh when they recognize something is funny.

My youngest cannot be explained. He’s more of an experience, and a joyful one at that.

Romance Novelist...
I’ve always loved to write. I’ve written for newspapers and magazines, also a host of personal projects. Then in December of 2012 I was reading on my first Kindle, gobbling up romances left and right. That’s when I fell in love with Ethan Blackstone, by the way.

I was inspired to sit down and write. Less than one year later I’ve published three books, written another and its sequel novella, and started on two more. Another series popped into my head, as well. Now as of August of 2014, I’m on the verge of publishing book six, with at least five started or specifically planned. Since I’m sure I won’t update this bio for a long time, you’ll have to rely on my Facebook updates to know what’s going on with Kemmie Michaels romances.

Review Justified Love and Intertwined Love (The Southern Gentleman Series) by Nicole Hite

Justified Love (The Southern Gentleman Series Book 1) by Nicole Hite was given to me to review.  This book was a great love story you have Carr who was a little overweight and made fun of in school so she leaves after she graduates and hopes to never come back.  You have Colt who is the football star and big guy in school who everyone loves.  The thing is people don’t realize that things aren’t always what they appear to be.  Carr gets a phone call from her dad to come home and her whole life gets turned upside down.  This was a great book and I can’t wait to read the next.  Carr and Colt and all their trails get 5 stars from me.

Intertwined Love (The Southern Gentleman Series 2) by Nicole Hite picks up right where the first left off.  The thing is you don’t have to read the first to enjoy the second.  So the second book is Skye and Wyatt’s story they have been best friends forever.  It was so cute to hear how they meet and became friends the problem is they both love each other but don’t say anything because they don’t want to jeopardize their friendship.  Then Skye get her life shook up by a huge change in her life. They have a rocky road you have to read and see how their lives turn out.  A 5 star book all the way can’t wait to read Harley’s book.

Review: Whispered Truth by Anne Mercier

So Anne Mercier is one of the authors I absolutely love when she said she was going to start a new series I was a little worried how they could compare to the rockstar series that I love. So I got Whispered Truths as an ARC and I have to say that Anne blew me out of the water with this one.  From the first chapter I was drawn into Kyle and Myah and what was going to happen to them.  Let me tell you though when you read this book you forget that these are 17 and 18 year olds that are going through these trails and dealing with these adult issues.  LOVED, loved, loved the way the group of friends all interact and protect each other just like family.  You must be warned there are some steamy parts in this book and I just can’t wait to read Jackson’s story next.  This is 5 stars all the way I think it maybe my new favorite series.

  Kyle And, damn, she's got so many damn secrets. I can see them lurking beneath the surface but she has them locked up tight. It's going to take time to get her to open up enough to share them… if she ever does. Hell, it's going to take a long damn time until I can let her know how I feel, how I’ve always felt. I don't want to scare her away. At least we're getting a little closer. She's feeling more comfortable around me. In all the years we've hung out in our group, especially the last three with Lisa and Luc dating, she's always kept me at a distance. At first I thought it was because I had girlfriends, but even when I was single she didn't let me in. In truth, I'm jealous as fuck over her friendship with Stewie. They're almost as close as she and Lisa are. The jealousy clawed at my chest Wednesday night with a viciousness I'd never experienced before, and all because Stewie was touching her. It wasn't sexual by any means and his innuendos and flirting were harmless. He isn't into her like that, at least not anymore, not like I thought he was. At least I don't think so. Damn it. His parents are just as fucked up as Myah's mom. They trust and rely on one another and I know for a fact he doesn't want to ever fuck that up. Besides that, he thinks of Myah as more of a sister—well maybe not. Maybe it is more for him. He is her protector, her confidant, and it pisses me the hell off. I want that job. Maybe in time. I'll have to keep it slow and steady and not push or pressure her in any way, or I'm afraid she'll book it the hell out of my life and it'll all be fucked.

Review The Lies We Lead by Marc Nobbs

I was given an arc copy of The Lies We Lead by Marc Nobbs for my honest opinion. When I got this copy I knew it was going to be a very erotic read. This book surprised me with all the research Marc had to do to come up with what goes on in the movie industry. Marc did a fantastic job on this. Yes it is very much an adult read. Marc brought you into the characters and the scenes. Every scene was hot and left you breathless. Bobby is a man of talent in many ways. As you read you will be wondering what and who is next in this swept up world of lies. Don't let the lies get you because you'll be begging for your own taste of this forbidden world. Who else besides Marc Nobbs can make scotch sexy.  This is by far a must read but be ready to have your panties soaked because after all this is an erotic read by Marc Nobbs the Gentlemen author, you'll never get enough of.

Review RiverWalk by Al Daltrey and 10 kinky friends

RiverWalk was such an exciting read. When I heard Al Daltrey was doing this with 10 female Authors 2 of them being brand new to writing I was so excited. It's no secret Al is one of my favorites along with Rosemary Willhide. So when I picked up my e reader I knew I was on a ride of a lifetime. Every author had their own little twist and messed so well with what Al writing is. I loved how every author put their own ways in this and you get a taste of what they are about. I can't say I have a favorite story in this but I can say everyone will keep you entertained and make you want more. This is by far a 5 star must read of the decade.
