Heartbreaker: A Filthy Dirty Love Novel - Stacey Kennedy

4.5 Stars
'Heartbreaker' by Stacey Kennedy is book One in the "Filthy Dirty Love" series. This is the story of Maddox and Joss. Maddox is a season cop but only has one night stands. Doesn't do second nights or dates. Joss has just gotten out of police training and is now working under Maddox. Both are fighting their attraction that actually started a year ago when they met at a bar. Neither knew the other person name and they had a quickie in the bathroom. But the memory has been in both of their minds and they can't get over the hot, exciting encounter they had. Joss had just broken up with her boyfriend of six years when she had her sexual encounter with Maddox and to this day she still is holding a grudge against that relationship. Vowing to near get involved for long term again. When they meet that year later, they both at first don't acknowledge their first meeting. Maddox still wants her but wonders if he can trust her know that he is her boss.
This was a really hot and exciting read! I enjoyed reading how these two were coming together and getting over their past. I loved the epilogue..it always such a please when the author puts one in...like a 'cherry on top'.

Great Story and Characters
The Feeling of Forever (Love Unplugged) ... The Feeling of Forever (Love Unplugged) - Jamie Howard

Juliet hated nothing more than planes but she did believe in science. Juliet had just been told by Ally she had just won “Sexiest Woman  Alive”.  Ally was Juliet's’ personal assistant and best friend. The past year had been a blur to Juliet who was an actress. Juliet had been running herself in the ground for several years and wanted some  her time. Felix had  been voted the “Sexiest Man Alive” for Celeb Magazine but the public didn't know there had been an accident and Felix was now in a wheelchair. Felix was part of a band called Downfall, Felix was the drummer. His band mate Ben said they could use the publicity. Felix had avoided women since the accident other than the nurses at the hospital and his physical therapist. Juliet was a nice person but she also felt Felix was still hot even in a wheelchair that didn’t matter to her. Felix was attracted to Juliet also. Juliet had left her phone at the photo shoot and the next day Felix showed up at her apartment to give it back to her and Juliet invited him in to eat. Juliet had a  stalker that had been put in jail but he just got out and Juliet got a note from him through the mail. Felix made Juliet feel better and she let him know she was interested in being more than friends. Felix told Juliet he wanted the same. Juliet had a sister with Juvenile Huntington Disease it was difficult for Elle- her sister- to walk or anything that required any fine motor skills even speech and now her stepfather had the same disease. Juliet felt guilty taking some time for herself. Then Juliet found out her stalker had been in her  apartment then later on pictures were sent of her and Felix and a threat was made to Felix. Juliet said she needs space.

An excellent story and I loved it. A lot of action but romance also. It definitely kept your interest as you wanted to see what would happen next. I loved how Felix's band mates  would not leave him behind and were there for him. I also loved how Juliet seen the man  and not the wheelchair. This is one of my new favorite stories. I loved the characters and the plot and  the ins and outs also how the author brought up about a little known disease at least by me. I highly recommend this

Have you ever wondered about the one that got away or...
Dating in Retrospect (States of Love Book 1) - Lila Leigh Hunter

Have you ever wondered about the one that got away or...

                                   maybe it was the one that you let slip away...


It's been 15 years since Clint last say Aaron and in all that time he's never forgotten the man that he'd planned to spend the rest of his life with.


Clint went off to California and Aaron was suppose to join him there. They were going to start their life together...follow their dreams and make their fortunes and all their dreams come true. But as can sometimes be the case with distance dreams fade and become little more than memories. Aaron never joined Clint in California...it was just never the right time and there was always something keeping him in Iowa. Eventually Clint decided that he needed to let Aaron go so they could both move on but neither time nor distance has changed how Clint feels about Aaron and after 15 years he's ready to go back and hopefully reclaim the love he gave up.


I liked that Clint was determined to win Aaron back and that he wasn't wishy, washy about it. Their relationship wasn't a one night stand or a weekend fling. They were together throughout most of college and for him to show up after 15 years of basically silence between the two of them was a pretty ballsy move and to do anything less than believe that Aaron still love  him, as much as he loved Aaron just wouldn't have been very convincing, but he was also smart enough to know that he could only push so far and his plan of them dating over the course of a year to give them a chance to become re-acquainted and re-build their relationship just seemed perfect because it also gave Clint the time to show Aaron that he was serious and committed to making it work and last between them.


I enjoyed the dates that Clint arranged for these two they had meaning and relevance to their shared background. I also appreciated that while Aaron didn't give in right away he also didn't play games and keep Clint dancing on pins and needles when he knew that in his heart he still loved him. He was cautious and rightfully so but he was also willing to take that second chance.


I also very much appreciated that both of these men were un-apologetically bisexual, yes they were both male and in a relationship but there was no instances of 'I'm gay because I'm with a guy'. They were two bisexual men who happened to fall in love with a guy. 


Unfortunately I didn't feel the over the top passion that I wanted to with Clint and Aaron. I really wanted to and when you have someone making the grand gestures that Clint was making I think the emotion between the couple needs to be reflective of that so for that reason this was a sweet story with little to no angst and while I really liked it. I wasn't over the moon blown away with it. But still a sweet, little second-chance story that gave me some laughs and allowed me to relax for a while as Aaron and Clint fell in love all over again, how can that be bad?



An ARC of 'Dating in Retrospect' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Magic Dreams
Magic Dreams - Ilona Andrews

This is the novella I've been wanting! The story of Dali and Jim. It is something that was teased in one of the earlier novels, but I've been wanting this story. It is the romance of two unlikely people and I loved it.


I have loved Dali from the moment we met her. She is so quirky! She's a shifter, one of the most celebrated in the shifter world. But she's a vegan. Yes, a vegan shifter. And shifting isn't easy for her. And on top of that, she is practically blind. She has self-esteem issues of the highest sort and compensates by drag racing, despite her eyesight. I love her. And then there's Jim. Usually surly, he's the head of security for the King of the Beasts. And, for once, he has to rely on someone else to help him. Enter Dali.


The romance is sweet and rife with all those bizarre issues that exist in relationships. And then if the romance is between shifters? Well, things only get more complicated.


Overall: This is a great side story to the series. They are two very different characters and their relationship is just one I rooted for.

Writing about love

...is so hard. Right?


I read a quote once that went something like this : "Writing about Love is like dancing about architecture." I think that's true. How does one write about love? Or to be more exact, how does one write about love well? The emotions are so varied, complex, and intense. 


Which brings me to John Green. I am reading 'Fault in Our Stars,' and I read this: "I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”


Thank you John Green. Perfectly said. Unlike lust, love comes forth slowly, and you may not be aware of it. Then it hits you like a wave.
