Still trying to figure this out...
Hearts in Darkness - Laura Kaye

"Wait! Can you please hold that?"



OMG I always use to hurry up when someone is coming my way to take the elevator with me. NOT ANYMORE!!! I use to say reading always teach me something. This little story taught me to wait for whoever is CUMing into the elevator. I have expectations now and I am so very ready for Caden!

Wait? You don’t know who Caden is? Let me compose myself. I am still… affected .

This book starts with lucky Makenna trying to catch the elevator where Caden is. She is a mysterious red head dressed very business-like. Caden is the gentleman who holds the door for her. And BOOM! They are trapped, the elevator stops and everything goes pitch black.

Interesting, huh?

What would you do in a situation like that when you don’t even know how your company looks like because you can’t see anything??? Would you reach for a stranger’s hand to find comfort?



I bought this book like ages ago and dammit I should have read this before! When I read the premise the first time I wasn’t 100% convinced but the author managed to put together a great story. Yes, it’s hot but it’s also sweet and dark and it hurts at times. Caden & Makenna didn’t have an easy life but they have found each other now and they seem to be pieces of the same puzzle.

Peace was not an emotion with which he was much familiar, but with Makenna, he had it. And he didn’t know how he’d ever give it up.


I just have one tiny complaint. Of course, if not, it wouldn’t be me! I wish the author wouldn’t have mentioned he was falling in love with her. I know this is fiction and romance but you don’t fall in love with someone in one day. I get they felt a strong connection but that’s it. My imagination can make up for what’s going to happen between them. RANT OVER. Sorry!

This is the trailer in case you want to have a better idea of what happens between them.

”I love… that elevator”

Remember When 2: The Sequel (Remember Trilogy, #2) - T. Torrest



You know how sometimes, your high school crush grows up to become a insanely famous movie star?
Okay, probably not.
But I do.


Okay, this book picks up 10 years later after the end of [b:Remember When|18043759|Remember When (Remember Trilogy, #1)|T. Torrest|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1371825413s/18043759.jpg|23743777].

Layla is working for a magazine called Now! and Trip is becoming a famous actor. They haven’t seen each other in ten long years and of course they now have their own lives. But you know fate sometimes is a bitch, right?

Trip is filming very close to Lay and she has the opportunity to meet him for an interview. No biggie! Oh well…

”Hey Chester. How’s it hanging?”
“Laya. Effing. Warren”


And guess what? Layla thought she had a great life BUT it looks like she’s missing someone…

”I just think you’re looking for happiness in the wrong place”


The thing is they’re not free, they both are engaged so they’re trying to behave. Should I say Lay is trying to behave? I can’t recall Trip hiding his feelings.



Trip has all he wants but he’s also missing something in his life. He’s tired of girls wanting him just because he’s a famous character, he misses having Layla around because she’s the only one who truly loved him and he’s a man on a mission now. His mission is getting back the life he left behind in book #1

”When you want something you can’t have, it can get… frustrating”




I can’t tell you anything else without spoiling this beautiful and sweet story but if you love YA/NA I’m pretty sure you want to give this series a try.

I had this song on my mind all the time while I was finishing this book:

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't wanna go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
When sooner or later it's over
I just don't wanna miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive

By the way, this is a message to the author, with all my love:
YOU BETTER RELEASE BOOK 3 PRONTO BEFORE I LOSE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! I. NEED. THAT. BOOK!!! NOW! ;)
Remember When (Remember Trilogy, #1) - T. Torrest

”Layla! Trip’s here. Please put some clothes on before coming down"

Time's Forbidden Flower (Forbidden Flower, #2) - Diane Rinella


The past is a mirror to the future that cannot be shattered.




Time's Forbidden Flower is the second installment on Lily's & Donovan story. It's really hard to review this one without spoilers so I'll be very vague because I want all of you to give this series a try and I want you to go blind.

This is a love story, a special one because Lily & Donovan's love is Forbidden. Why you ask? Because they're siblings which in our society is a huge taboo, isn't it?



Diane's writing style is exquisite. So easy to read, like words are just floating in the air and you can't stop feeling what the characters are experiencing.

***Don't read from this point if you haven't read book #1***

"Basically, every song is our song"


So Donovan & Lily are living very close again and what do they say? Oh yeah, where there was fire ashes remain...

They now have their lives, their responsibilities and another significant ones to look after but when your soul belongs to someone else, you can't look pass that fact, can you?

"I'll never be in love with anyone the way I am with you"


But, is love enough to fight all demons and be together no matter what? Even when you have a family and you need to explain them you're in love with your brother?

But what happens when you discover something that proves that this love will last forever? And when I say forever, I mean forever soul mates love and all

In my opinion, this was a very well written end for their story. I wish they could have been together sooner but I understand their love was not an easy one. I loved the journey, Diane!

Lily and Donovan will always have a place in my heart!

P.S. I personally LOVED Christy's review so just in case you haven't read it, go have a look:

Soul-Mate (Sin, #1) - Kol Anderson

****BR with my fave PERVY ever!!! Melissa, there we go!!!

Crazy JAHY just joined us!!!

I know, this is incest and WHAT? I love it! Don't judge me!
My Life Next Door - Huntley Fitzpatrick



My Life Next Door tells us the story of Samantha, a girl who practically has spent her 17 years watching The Garrets. All the time

The Garrets are her neighbors next door and Sam’s mother hates them because they remind her of her ex- in laws. They are a huge family, very noisy and carefree, they are happy. And even though Sam’s mom told her to never ever have contact with them she can’t help but stare at them all the time.

And one night while she’s spying them, Jase comes to “rescue her”.

”Hey, need rescuing?”




From that moment, they can’t stay apart. They always have an excuse to see each other and that’s how Samantha is introduced to that crazy family called The Garrets. I cannot name them all but let me say George was my favourite.

“Is Jase already gonna marry you?”

I start coughing again. “Uh, No. No, George. I’m only seventeen.” As if that’s the only reason we’re not engaged.

“I’m this many.” George holds up four, slightly grubby fingers. “But Jase is seventeen and a half. You could. Then you could live in here with him. And have a big family.”

Jase strides back into the room, of course, midway through this proposition. “George. Beat it. Discovery Channel is on.”

George backs out of the room but not before saying, “His bed’s really comfortable. And he never pees in it.”


So they start a beautiful friendship that ends up involving love feelings but they don’t want to take things quick so they remain friends... for a while.

Sam’s best friend Nan also plays an important role in this story FUCKING BITCH! and her brother Tim. He was one of my fave characters and I would have love to see him and Alice together. Tim doesn’t have an easy life but he was a good example for a lot of young guys that are totally lost and don’t know what to do with their lifes.

Sam’s mom was… AGH! I don’t even have words, not to mention her boyfriend and all that happened with the accident
But I guess Jase made it up for me big time because he was PERFECT! I have ZERO complains about him.

”I guess I like things that take time and attention. More worthwhile that way”


And yeah… I have a tiny complain. Where the hell is the end??? Seriously!!! I am missing it. I know I have an imagination and blah blah blah but come on!!!

And that resolution about the accident? Nope, I didn’t like that


All in all, this was a very well written sweet summer story that will take you back to your younger years. A story that will make you dream and believe that everything is possible in this world if you find your Jase.



Thanks Sandra for telling me about this book and for our BR.
When You Were Pixels (Syntax #0.1) - Julio-Alexi Genao



WOW. What a beautiful journey! I wish this had been longer. This is the first time I read a book from this author and I’m totally speechless. I must admit I was a little reticent about this one because this is not my genre but seeing my buddies loved it I decided to give it a try and it completely blew me away. I am not giving it 5 starts because of the length (but I am pretty sure Julio is a 5 star writer).His voice is just MUSIC TO MY EARS, this was way close to poetry!

Antho and his story will captivate you. Both characters will stay in your heart forever and you will keep thinking about them when you’re done. Because you want the best for them, because you know they can be good together.

As the blurb says, this is the story of Antho who works as a surveillance operator on tower Oh-Seven-Two. He decides to rescue an assassin and take him home. Crazy, huh? Sometimes you need to do crazy things to experience LIFE!!!

There is something very special in this story, I can’t even put it under spoiler tags because you might want to open it and I’d kill myself. THAT little thing made the story way more interesting. I loved Antho, L-O-V-E-D his capacity to give love. He gave me hopes!

Please read this little gem, it’s a freebie, this is the link:

The Marriage Mistake (Marriage to a Billionare, #3) - Jennifer Probst
Just quick thoughts, ok?

This was 2.5 stars for me (I rounded up because I hate giving 2 stars, I feel bad). Why only 2.5 stars? Oh well, kinda predictable and boring. Maybe sweet stories are not my cuppa anymore. And yes, it had hot sex but for some reason that's not enough for me. I need to FEEL and let's say this book didn't make it for me but, and this is a big but, most of my buddies loved it so give it a try as you might like it more than me.

A one-night stand just wasn't worth it. Not even with a woman who soothed his shoul and made him crave to be a better man.


Okay... for starters, (and this is not a spoiler), the blurb tells you almost the 60-65% of the story. NO JOKE!. Why would you do that?

Anyway, if you read the blurb you will know what this story is about. Nothing special. Carina is in love with Max (Carina's brother best friend) but she "knows" he's off limits until they have to work together and they can't avoid the attraction between them because they are super ultra mega hot, just like most of the heroes and heroines... Sorry but I don't do well with cliches anymore :(

All in all, predictable and sweet and yeah, there are some hot scenes.

Finito!

PETER PAN, that is all!


Unteachable - Leah Raeder

I read this while I was moving and OMG loved it BIG TIME!!! I need time to process it and write a proper review. I won't make justice to this book but I'll try my best.

MISSION FUCKING ACCOMPLISHED!!!



Obrigada, Ana Rita, for your great rec xxx

P.S. BTW, about the ending... DO NOT OPEN THE SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THIS GEM! I've read this was a NON HEA ending. Seriously? Did we all read the same book? Ladies, we all read books so we all have imagination, right? The end was perfect and in my opinion I didn't need an Epilogue about them 10 years later being married and with kids, that's boring.
The Mistress Files - Tiffany Reisz
FIVE I-want-Nora-Sutherlin STARS!!!

THIS BOOK! MADRE MIA, THIS BOOK!!!




Ok guys, let me start this review asking you for something…



Yes, I need punishment because I sinned. Why did I sin? Oh well, because I am a Sinner and because I enjoyed this book way too much. Candace told us in her review she had one orgasm per chapter. What a loser, isn’t she? I mean, just one? Seriously, PIP? You disappoint me, pet!

‘The Mistress Files’ tells us some stories about our Mistress Nora Sutherlin and some of her Doms/Subs.

When someone paid for her best she did her worst


I can’t tell you about my favourite story because I loved them all, they all had something special, they all taught me something.



Sometimes you just don’t know what you need. You just know what you have is not enough to get what you want so you need to explore and see what you need to enjoy your sexual life.

And the way Tiffany/Nora wrote those stories… Oh boy, you’re gonna LOVE IT! I have a tip for you: read this ALONE, you are gonna need some privacy.



Well done Mistress!

And then sometimes… You might know what you want but you might want to deny it because you think our boring society won’t accept it, right?



So, guess what?



And I don’t care what you think about that because we should choose what we want in our lives, right?

SEX IN A RELATIONSHIP IS A PARTNERSHIP

By the way, Martin got a new key ring. Nice, huh?



GO. READ. THIS. BOOK. NOW!!! I beg you guys and you know who much I love begging!
The Island - Lisa Henry

WHAT'S THE FIRST THING YOU REMEMBER?

The Island is not an easy book to review. I don't even think it's an easy book to read but it's definitely a MUST READ. I know you guys might read the blurb and think this is way out of your comfort zone but if you give it a try, you'll understand what I am talking about.

Shaw is one of the bad guys, he works with some not-so-legal stuff. He’s in the middle of one important job when he meets ‘green eyes’. His world is about to change and he doesn’t even know it.

What would you do if you have been fighting for years to get where you are now and your conscience is playing games with you? What if we add your heart to the equation?



Green Eyes is just a guy who was in a bad place in a bad moment. And now, he’s no one. He’s just a thing, a toy.

What would you do if one day you have a perfect life and 1 minute later everything is turned upside down? How do you survive when you’re a slave and you’re just waiting for someone to kill you? Do you have hope or do you just pray for this to be over soon?

Hold on to hope. Count down the sand dollars, pass the time, wait and see.




Thanks Vio for your rec & Thanks Amaia for our BR.
The Return - Brad Boney
Loving it... What a little surprise!!!

Dirty Red (Love Me With Lies, #2) - Tarryn Fisher Review to come.

"Hate is such a prodigious feeling"




Yes Leah, that's hate. That's what I feel when I think about you.

And this is how I picture you...

Love's Erotic Flower - Diane Rinella

THE FIRES THAT TRIED TO DESTROY US HAVE ONLY LIT THE WAY.

What a little surprise this short story was! When Soraya recommended [b:Love's Forbidden Flower|16181908|Love's Forbidden Flower (Forbidden Flower #1)|Diane Rinella|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1354338790s/16181908.jpg|22085087] I didn't know how to thank her for telling me about that book. It was something different, I remember I didn't connect with the characters instantly but I ended up understanding and loving those characters as if they were part of my family.

Lily and Donovan are siblings but they have a special connection since forever. And when I say forever, I mean forever (this is something I will develop when I review [b:Time's Forbidden Flower|17339474|Time's Forbidden Flower (Forbidden Flower, #2)|Diane Rinella|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1374340140s/17339474.jpg|24074429]).



I know this is not a series for everyone. If you don't like reading about incest, then this is not for you but if you want to try something out of your comfort zone then I will suggest you give this series a try. It's so well written you will get to understand their feelings and the situation they have to deal with.

When Lily & Donovan finally decide to give their feelings a try things are not easy but will their love be strong enough to fight all those demons?

In this short story we just get to read an unpublished chapter of [b:Love's Forbidden Flower|16181908|Love's Forbidden Flower (Forbidden Flower #1)|Diane Rinella|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1354338790s/16181908.jpg|22085087] and let me tell you this was DIFFERENT, that's the best word to express it. For starters, this chapter is erotica while this series is NA so there's a difference and then we get to know a side of Lily that we didn't know. Let's say it surprised me.

"What's the matter, D-boy? Is the big, bad jock afraid of the wussy, little pastry chef?"


Oh yeah, we are afraid of this new Lily but guess what? I like you!

And Donovan... he's just the same lovable and beautiful guy I met in [b:Love's Forbidden Flower|16181908|Love's Forbidden Flower (Forbidden Flower #1)|Diane Rinella|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1354338790s/16181908.jpg|22085087]. How I love this boy, he's one of my fave book boyfriends. The way he wants to make her happy, the way he wants to take care of her... I really can't wait for [b:Time's Forbidden Flower|17339474|Time's Forbidden Flower (Forbidden Flower, #2)|Diane Rinella|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1374340140s/17339474.jpg|24074429] to see what happens with him. My poor little boy!

I give his chest a little kiss, then glide my finger down his torso, thanking God for this amazing man ho loves me in so many ways.


I really can't wait to read more about their story, the way [b:Love's Forbidden Flower|16181908|Love's Forbidden Flower (Forbidden Flower #1)|Diane Rinella|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1354338790s/16181908.jpg|22085087] ended left me like a mess and I need to know what happens next!

BLURB:

*********************************************************************

Try – verb: to make an attempt or effort to do something or in this case…someone.

Sex. Logan Mitchell loves it, and ever since he realized his raw sexual appeal at a young age, he has had no problem using it to his advantage. Men and women alike fall into his bed—after all, Logan is not one to discriminate. He lives by one motto—if something interests you, why not just take a chance and try?

And he wants to try Tate Morrison.

Just coming out of a four-year marriage with an ex-wife from hell, a relationship is the last thing on Tate’s mind. He’s starting fresh and trying to get back on his feet with a new job at an upscale bar in downtown Chicago.
The only problem is, Tate has caught the unwavering and unwelcome attention of Mr. Logan Mitchell – a regular at the bar and a man who always gets what he wants.
Night after night Tate fends off the persistent advances of the undeniably charismatic man, but after an explosive moment in the bar, all bets are off as he finds his body stirring with a different desire than his mind.

As arrogance, stubbornness and sexual tension sizzles between the two, it threatens to change the very course of their lives.

Logan doesn’t do relationships. Tate doesn’t do men. But what would happen if they both just gave in and…tried?
