Buy Links:  Amazon | Barnes | ITunes | Kobo Four and a half stars for this story of love lost and redemption. Lucy Flint didn’t just do wrong, she took her life and crumpled it up and threw it in the wastebasket, stompd on it and doused it with lighter fluid before setting it aflame. She really did wrong, but she comes home as part of her 12 steps program to apologize for the wrong. As if she didn’t know it already, life proves that amends are not easy to make and the few people she must apologize to are not going to forgive her. The harder lesson is that broken hearts don’t mean that love is dead. Dr. Richard Hunter is a good guy that did his best to make a good life after Lucy ripped out his heart. He got his career, and married the girl he was “supposed to”. Life still hasn’t made the path he should have followed easy and he finds himself separated from his ‘perfect’ wife.  Last thing he needs is Lucy literally crashing back into his life and turning it on his head. He swore to never forgive her, and he still plans on the same. Love, time, and healing show them neither are the person they were then. Some people would rather have revenge and make amends.  Lucy has some tough choices to make – will she go back to the bottle or run? I loved the ups and downs, the emotional turmoil, and the not so easy resolution of the couple. Lucy’s home life with her mother and ailing father paintd a vivid picture of who she was and how things turned out the way they did, but also supplied a path to healing. Nothing was “Easy” about this book, it ripped your guts out a few times. The sex (and near sex) was hotter than hell.  All in all I really loved it.  I am really looking forward to book 2… *~* Buy Links:  Amazon | Barnes | ITunes | Kobo Blurb  In this evocative new series from author Sarah Hegger, a woman returns home after a long absence—and wonders if two wrongs really can make a right… Nine years ago Lucy Flint ran away to Seattle, taking her friend’s boyfriend and leaving her high school sweetheart without a word of explanation. Now she’s back in Willow Park, Illinois, to help care for her ailing father—and it’s no surprise that her ex, Dr. Richard Hunter, is still angry. Still, she’s a different Lucy now. Sober, wiser, ready to make amends to the long—make that very long—list of those she mistreated during her wild younger days. Falling for Richard all over again would mean wreaking havoc in both their lives and possibly squandering her opportunity for redemption. But here, in the place where everything went wrong, is the one person who always felt right, and a second-chance that could be the best mistake she ever made… Book Trailer: Link to Follow Tour: Goodreads Link: Author Info Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble. Mimicking her globe-trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother.She currently lives in Draper, Utah, with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books. She loves to hear from readers and you can find her at any of the places below.  Author Links:  Website | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads Rafflecopter Giveaway (Including: (1) $20.00 Amazon Gift Card, (3) $10.00 Amazon Gift Cards, Five Print Copies of NOBODY’S ANGEL (Or Digital for Int. winners)) a Rafflecopter giveaway Read more »

REVIEW: The Artful by Wilbert Stanton

| Amazon | BN | Curiosity Quills | BLURB New York City, 2025: Everything is changed. The city that never sleeps is now a land of death and decay. A rampant virus has taken over and the survivors have become carriers, quarantined from the rest of the world. Twist and Dodger grew up in the streets, the sewers and underground tunnels – their playground. They aren’t heroes. They just like attention; and stealing meds from the rich and giving them to the poor is their golden ticket. On their latest raid, they unknowingly steal a cure that puts them square between the ailing Emperor of Manhattan and the war hungry Governor of Brooklyn and forces them on a quest into the darkest shadows of their putrefying world. *~* I was up and down on my rating of this one. The beginning was so slow I almost didn’t keep going on. I have 2 ereaders and bookshelves full of books that need read. Still, I pushed on and the action picked up, which made the reading go a lot faster. The characters were ones I never really found myself pulling for or ‘liking’. They were products of their situation and I’m not sure I was supposed to ‘like’ them – but that did make it hard for me to rate it higher.  In the end the pace of the story pulled me in and I did see character growth throughout the story. The world building was good, and set the dark mood of the world they live in quite well. There were unbelievable parts of the dystopian world built, and the technique of everyone stays behind the fence because they’re told to was predictable.  Still, I like how the city has fallen in disarray and the factions are separated. The ending, while confusing, did draw me in and make me curious about the rest of the series, which a good series set up does.  So in the end, I gave it three stars and will keep an eye on the rest of the series. Maybe my rating will change after that 😉 *Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.* Read more »

REVIEW: Wild Nights by Tina Wainscott

*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review* | Amazon | BN | ARe | Kobo | I almost put down this book after the first chapter. There was too much info dump and a room full of testosterone laced men.  I understand the need to fill in us newbies in the midst of a series (I have not read the first two books) – but I just wanted the meat of the story. I’m glad I didn’t.  Once the heroine finally got in the picture and we got to the meat of the story I got good and caught up in the story.  The sex scenes were setting my kindle on fire and the chemistry between the characters was great! Love how Jennessy saw beneath the surface to realize Sax was only fooling himself into believing he couldn’t be monogamous. | Amazon | BN | ARe | Kobo | Blurb The courageous men of USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott’s Justiss Alliance series never give up and never make a promise they can’t live up to—especially when love is on the line. The only commitment Saxby Cole has ever made is to the SEALs. He follows a long line of Southern charmers who swear monogamy isn’t in their blood. He’s never met a woman who made him want to swear his allegiance—until, while undercover for a Justiss Alliance assignment, he finds a woman who makes him think twice. When Jennessy Shaw’s boyfriend dumps her right before their vacation to a hedonistic Caribbean resort, she goes without him to explore her wild side. Throwing caution to the wind, she propositions Saxby—only to suffer his gentle rejection. When she wakes in Saxby’s room with no memory of the night before, Jennessy discovers his real purpose: to sniff out an operation where women like her are drugged and prostituted to resort guests. She goes from victim to his investigative partner . . . but getting too close to the sexier-than-sin Saxby may be her wildest move yet. Praise for the Justiss Alliance series “Tina Wainscott delivers high-octane suspense and red-hot romance! Full of edge-of-your-seat action and red-hot passion, Wild on You is a souped-up roller coaster of a page-turner.”—Julie Ann Walker, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Black Knights Inc. series “Bad boys breaking rules and hearts and dishing up justice—Tina Wainscott nails it!”—New York Times bestselling author Cindy Gerard  Link to Follow Tour: Goodreads Link:   Author Info USA Today bestselling author Tina Wainscott has always loved the combination of romance and suspense, because nothing complements falling in love better than being hunted down. The author of more than thirty novels and novellas, Wainscott creates characters with baggage, past hurts, and vulnerabilities. They go through hell, find love, and, at the end, find peace in who they are and everything they’ve gone through. And isn’t that what everyone wants?
