Can't Let Go by Michelle Lynn - Cover Reveal


Surrounded by S.C. Ellington - Book Review


Everything was falling into place. Even amongst all the chaos of Washington D.C., Brooklyn and Logan found each other.

Brooklyn never expected Logan...and as it always seems to happen with her...things fell apart. She has been through this before...was she strong enough to do it again?

On the outside, Logan was the epitome of wealth and confidence. Many knew his name but few knew his secrets. He never expected Brooklyn...but now she's walked away. He knew what they shared mattered to her...and she...she mattered to him more.

 I enjoyed reading Unsettled, and I was looking forward in reading Surrounded, the second book in the series. I was looking forward for Logan’s POV – thank goodness for the dual POV in this book, I was so relieved. I have been wanting to get inside Logan’s brains for ages. He has so many secrets, so many issues and a past that was still blurry in the first book.

It started right about where the first book ended, Brooklyn and Logan are about to live their happily-ever-after. After her devastating heartache, she never expected Logan. He was a pleasant surprise. What they have happened fast, but they were happy. Until, everything fell apart. When I say everything, I really meant everything. Her heart was broken, she lost her job. She decided she had nothing more in Washington and opted to just go home for a while.

If she had only allowed him to explain – it would have saved us all the trouble. But no, she ran away. She left him without telling him what was wrong. And he was left dumbfounded. He tried to give her space, but when everything seems to be running out of hand, and he couldn’t find her anymore, he decided to make his move and followed her.

Logan may have everything in the world, but he only wanted one girl. That is Brooklyn. She was his unexpected, and now she’s gone and had walked away from him. I like that he acted fast, he tried to give space (as healthy as possible), but when it didn’t end well, he rushed to her, and won her back. Not only that, he had won the trust of her family and friends.

Trust has been the issue between the two of them. Thankfully, they worked it out. Conversation and Communication is one of the best foundations of a relationship, so as trust and honesty. It was a small mistake, a misunderstanding that had almost cost them something valuable.

Alex was still a charmer, and she brought nothing but smiles in this novel. She’s really a loyal friend, and you can’t find someone who loves Brooke except for Logan maybe. She would do everything for her friend, and I’m so glad she too is going to get her HEA.

I liked S.C. Ellington after I read Unsettled, and now with Surrounded, I liked her even more. I love the secrets, and the twists. It’s sexy. It’s romantic. It’s sweet. It can be frustrating at times, but S.C. Ellington will make sure you will have everything you need before you close her book.

Found In Us by Layla Hagen - Book Review

**This can be read as a STANDALONE. The second book in the Lost series tells Jessica and Parker's story.**

All Jessica wants -as a college graduate — is to be a good girl. She landed the job of her dreams at a museum and is trying to eliminate temptations. No more short skirts (when she can help it). No wild parties. And no men.

She particularly excels at that last thing. . .

Until her path crosses Parker’s. Again. Jessica remembers the last time their paths crossed very well. She was left with a seriously bruised ego. She knows it would be best to avoid him altogether. But the charming Brit makes it hard for her to elude his electrifying pull. He is as irresistible as he is captivating.

And enigmatic.

Because underneath the sleek Armani suit and the sweet British accent that makes her crave his touch, Parker isn’t the perfect gentleman everyone thinks he is.

He’s exactly what Jessica doesn’t want, but desperately needs.

A bad, bad boy.

This is my second book by Layla Hagen, and she hasn’t disappointed me so far. The series just got better and better, and I so love the dual POV that came with this book. I was so thankful for it, getting inside the character’s mind would make you understand them more.

You will fall in love with Jessica and Parker, just like you did with Serena and James. They are two different people, who shares some similar traits – they find it hard to trust other people.

She wanted to be good.

Jessica wasn’t perfect. She was the bad girl who’s trying to turn over a new leaf. She just graduated from college and eager to start new away from home starting with getting her dream job at a museum and eliminate temptations. No more wild parties, no more short skirts and most important no more men.

She was doing good with getting herself away from temptation until she crosses path with Parker again. The last time they had met didn’t lead to something good. She was embarrassed, more likely for herself. But avoiding him would be a bit futile, since he was close with Dani. Just like his friend, he can be hot, then cold. He can be tempting acting as if he wants her, then suddenly would act as if he doesn’t want her at all. This had made her confuse even more. The mystery that he exudes and the attraction they shared, gravitated her towards him.

She makes him lose his control.

Parker is trying his best to be the perfect gentleman in front of everyone. Even though it kills him a bit, not to touch or taste Jessica every time he sees her. He needed to have his control, and with Jessica, he was losing it. She was a danger to him. But she was exactly what he needs. He was living a mundane, boring, serious life, and she sees the rainbow in every storm. She is a breath of fresh air. Maybe this is the reason why he couldn’t help but like her.

But how can two people who have trust issues built a relationship?

My sentiment exactly. They both have problems with trust, how can a relationship withstood storms and quakes without it? Even friendship would crumble without trust. But with their past, you will understand why trust wasn’t easy for them to give. It took some time (like-I-was-dying-right-here-I-need-to-know-now kind of some time) before secrets were spilled, and trust was gained one day after the other. It was their trust issues that drove both of them apart. All the while, I thought of something else, but Parker surprised me with what he did. It was a WTF moment right there.

How can they possibly kiss and make up? Would they finally set aside their issues, and allow themselves to trust and commit?

I love how their characters develop, how change was happening as I turn the pages. I couldn’t help myself from getting hooked, and falling in love with the characters, and most especially I can’t wait until book 3, which is Dani’s story. This book gives us something to look forward to.

Found In Us is hot, tempting, and sweet all wrapped up with a great cover. Parker is the kind of man that stars in some of our wildest fantasies, and Jessica is one heck of a lucky girl!
I will never take away your wings, Jessica. I want to learn how to fly with you.

No Regrets by Claire Kent - Book Review

No Regrets Cover

Title: No Regrets
Author: Claire Kent
Expected Publication: July 22, 2014

On my last birthday, I made one vow for the year. Live with no regrets. Eleven months have passed, though, and nothing has changed. I still sleep alone, spend my life working, and never move out of my comfort zone.

Then the loss of my dog throws my whole life out of orbit, and I end up in bed with a very hot and slightly-too-young veterinarian, who has recently made a vow of his own. Live with no strings. Josh is more than happy to help me with the things I’ve been afraid to try. Semi-public sex. Spanking. Anal sex. He’s a willing partner for everything I’ve wondered about, as long as I don’t demand more.

He’s serious about his no-strings philosophy. As serious as I am about living with no regrets. I can’t help but fall for him, even though I know better. So my biggest regret might be a broken heart.
