good book and characters
Too Hard to Forget - Tessa Bailey

Belmont had just driven into Ohio and Peggy- his sister-felt like she was going to throw up. The third person with the siblings was Sage who was Peggy’s best friend. In two weeks Peggy had lost two siblings. -Rita and Aaron. She was on the way to losing Belmont. Peggy was going to Cincinnati to complete a mission of revenge she had decided to do.Peggy had been engaged four times. And wore the rings around her neck as a symbol of her shame. Soon Peggy would be on the campus where Elliott Brooks - who was a coach- who had ruined Peggy for all others. Rebounds hadn’t worked for Peggy so she was returning the favor. Peggy was going to make Elliot’s life  hell. It was Peggy’s last chance to move on. Elliot was head coach of the Bearcats and had the coach of the year award two times. Elliot had broken Peggy’s heart. Elliot came from a very religious background. Elliot had lost his wife but it wasn’t a loving marriage but Elliot still felt guilty for the way he felt about Peggy. Elliot pushed Peggy out of his life but three years later Peggy was back and since seeing Elliot was starting to get the closure from Elliot bu then he seems to change his mind and realizes how much he had hurt Peggy.

I enjoyed this book a lot. I loved how Peggy was a determined to get revenge and I hated how she felt she wasn’t good enough. But this did pull me in right from the beginning and kept my interest until the end. This choked me up at times. This book was busy at times and sometimes it was hard to keep track of everything. I recommend reading the first book in the series before this one. There was definitely a very hot chemistry between Elliot and Peggy. This was like a roller coaster at times. This was very well written. This also had a very good plot. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

Entangled Under The Mistletoe - Spotlight Review

 

 

 

Crashed out

By Tessa Bailey

 

On sale for 99¢ for a limited time only!

 

 

 

About the book:

 

His inspiration. His torment. And his temptation… 

 

Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She’s the fuel for every song he’s ever written—each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that this “kid” turned into every inch the man she’s always needed… 

 

Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey…until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks—or rather storms—into Jasmine’s life. Sarge’s return shouldn’t affect her this way. He’s her best friend’s much younger kid brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her.

 

But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it…

Crashed Out (Made in Jersey, #1)Crashed Out by Tessa Bailey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jasmine used to babysit Sarge. He grew up knowing he wanted a future with her. A fantasy that never had a chance of coming true.

Sarge has come back to his hometown all grown up. He realizes what he has missed out on. He regrets waiting so long to come back. Only he could not have made himself come sooner.

Jasmine sees the grownup version of Sarge as a threat to her health. He is so hot that he causes a heatwave whenever he is near. Can she resist the man he has become?

I found myself so anxious to get to the end of the story. This book has characters that just move you to feel so many things. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. What a hot and fun book!

*Disclaimer: I received an eARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my rating or the content of this review in any way.  

 

Rough Rhythm by Tessa Bailey

 

I absolutely loved this story! I felt pretty confused about what had happened between James and Lita when they first met, but I figured it had to be pretty important for James to act like such a scared cat all the time. Lita is a relentless woman. She knows what she wants, and she wants James, no matter what he tries to do to keep her away from him. I simply adored seeing her make tiny dents into his walls with her antics.

 

The thing that I loved most about this story is the fact that it says it like it is, that there's a huge difference between BDSM and abuse, and for that alone I'm going to love this story and keep it in my heart forever and ever. I don't think that this fact has been as plainly stated in other books as it was in this story, and for that alone I'm going to put Bailey on my auto-buy from now on.

 

Rating: 5 cups

 

Devoted by Lexi Blake

 

I see Lexi Blake on a cover and I'm already hooked. No questions asked. I liked to see two strong characters find their way in the crazy world that is the Masters and Mercenaries series and the BDSM lifestyle.

 

I did however have a teeny tiny problem with Flynn not being honest with Amy. I thought that he should have told her from the very start who he was. Yes, he makes up for it, but I would have wanted for them to have a completely honest relationship from the start.

 

As always however, Blake knows just how to spin a story enough for that aspect of the plot to make me fall in love with the characters, flaws and all.

Z by Larissa Ione


Every new story to the Demonica series makes me giddy and happy as a clam. Not only does this story finally explores Zhubaal's story, it also hints to what will happen in the future, which OMG I have a feeling it will be epic.

 

In the spirit of Ione's stories, there's more to Vex and Zhubaal than meets the eye, and I adore the differences between their story and your typical soulmate story. It's even different than some other angel stories from within the Demonica series. I love how Vex challenged Zhubaal, or Z, and how she was completely opposite to what he thought she should be. I also liked reading about his inner struggle. It was, as expected, a really good story and a nice addition to the Demonica world.

 

And again, holy hell if what Revenant said ties in to the next generation of Demonica books, it will be epic.

Falling Under You by Laurelin Paige

 

I liked this story a lot. Not because of the sex, although that was hot, but because of the chemistry between Norma and Boyd, which went beyond sex, it was a chemistry that translated very well in their professional lives as well. I liked the fact that they managed to find a balance between being work partners and romantic partners. I liked the idea that you could be both romantically and professionally involved with someone, something that I normally don't see so well explored, but Paige made it work perfectly. It kind of made sense for them to end up together and to make such a great team.

 

I'll definitely read more books by this author.

 

Rating: 4.5 cups

 

Craving His Command by Jenna Jacob

 

If the first novella of this bundle said that BDSM and abuse are two very different things, this one proves it. I don't know if this was made on purpose or if it was coincidence, but I love the fact that these two stories were put together as they were.

 

Mercy and Kellan have an interesting story. I felt sad a lot of the times for them, because they had really sad pasts. Mercy's was scary, but important to be told because that's what makes this story important I think. And even though I was furious about the outcome and the fact that she didn't get what she wanted (sorry, I don't want to give out spoilers, but you'll read it and you'll know), it made sense for the story to be this way because unfortunately real life is full of these stories. And so maybe, just maybe, reading about it will hopefully help in changing that truly horrible fact.

 

I also like that just because he knows about her past, Kellan doesn't treat her like a victim, but as someone who went through something horrible, survived, and can be treated like a normal person, which she is. I enjoyed reading that. This is another author that I'll definitely read more of.

 

Rating: 4.5 cups

 

American Queen by Sierra Simone

 

This was a very interesting story. A very hot, interesting story. A story that I want to know more of.

 

Embry, Ash and Greer make an interesting threesome, and I love that there's more darkness in them than in the rest of the threesome stories I've read about before.

 

There's a lot of intrigue and mystery in this story that makes this novella so unique to me. It's not only the sex, it's the questions that I have about what happened when Greer was a child, as well as what will happen in her future. In their future, actually.

 

I will definitely keep reading this series, because I am sooo curious to learn what happens next.

Too Beautiful to Break (Romancing the Clarksons) by Tessa Bailey
Too Beautiful to Break (Romancing the Clarksons) - Tessa Bailey

 

Reading Too Beautiful to Break, is like standing in the eye of a hurricane.  The storm clouds alert to danger, but the thrill of the unknown outweighs the fear of what's to come. Belmont and Sage are a cocktail of danger from their co - dependent relationship, to their individual demons.  Underneath the calm lies precarious revelations that could prove lethal to a friendship that goes beyond the boundaries of the norm.  At times I felt like a voyeur as I traversed the carnage of this disturbingly complicated duet of hearts, but once you step into the maze there's no turning back.  Your heart won't allow you to walk away.

Disorderly Conduct (The Academy) by Tessa Bailey
Disorderly Conduct: The Academy - Tessa Bailey

 

The player just got played by a novice to the game.  Tessa Bailey knows how to deliver sexy while keeping it sweet.  Disorderly Conduct takes every stereotype about relationships and bends the rules.  Ever as unique as her name.  She acts tough, but that's just a facade to keep the pain and loneliness at bay.  Charlie can be a jerk, but when he cares about anything or anyone, he's all in.  One night of sex leads to a casual no strings relationship.  Until emotions become involved?   Will "nothing serious" turn into happily ever after?   Something special has arrived.
