Review: Tool by Sabrina Paige

Review: Tool by Sabrina Paige

OK, a few weeks ago I wrote a post about Stepbrother Romances, Yay or Nay. And I got a lot of (positive) feedback about the current theme in indie, new adult books. Well, since that post, I read two more stepbrother taboo books, and guess what… I loved them both. So hello bandwagon, I’m Kristi and I continue to enjoy these taboo love affairs. To read my post about the current trend of stepbrother romances, including Prick, also by Sabrina Paige, click here. I recently read the new release, Tool: A Stepbrother Romance, this past weekend and what can I say… it has all the goodies I love in these new adult books. 1. Hot, bad ass stepbrother 2. Smart, trendy heroine (the stepsister) 3. Chemistry and banter (love hate relationship, angst) 4. Hot sex (dirty, wet panties sex) 5. HEA I loved this book. I loved it so much my… Read more »

Review: ROCK by Kendall Grey

Review: ROCK by Kendall Grey

Holy flaming furburgers and disjointed dicks, this book – can I just tell you how much I love these characters? That’s the first important point, the members of Killer Buzz Float are freaking badass mofos that I want to spend some serious party-in-a-hotel-suite time with, hopefully when it’s one of their birthdays. They never get old. I could read 85 books about Letty, Shades, Eve, Rax, Jinx, and Toombs. They’re deep, well developed characters who are fun and funny, but who will jerk the emotions out of you like a dick on a short fuse. Second: Birthday Club. The first rule of Birthday Club is holy shit, Birthday Club. The second rule of Birthday Club is fuck yeah, Birthday Club. As if anyone needed a reason to party like it’s PornHub, the KBF crew make it their mission to make birthday wishes come true, including mine, because I so wanted… Read more »

Happy ONE Year Anniversary to Guns by JA Huss

Happy ONE Year Anniversary to Guns by JA Huss

Any one who knows me, knows I love Spencer Shrike with a passion. I claimed him as my top book boyfriend over a year and a half ago… and one year ago today, Guns: The Spencer Book released. Julie gave me an ARC on my 28th birthday and I cried. I cried a lot through this book; because her characters became real to me. I fell in love with #theteam and wanted to be a part of their world. I wasn’t ready to say good-bye. The Rook and Ronin series and spin-offs also led to an online group of ladies, Julie’s street team, who became a family of friends throughout this series. I continue to interact with these ladies on a daily basis, many who I chit chat with on the phone, send funny texts, or simply PM. We are a close knit group of friends, all who came together… Read more »

A. MUST. READ… Need by KI Lynn and N. Isabelle Blanco

A. MUST. READ… Need by KI Lynn and N. Isabelle Blanco

Kristi’s Review: I don’t even know  how I can adequately put my thoughts into words that would remotely come close to telling you how much I freaking LOVED this book. Love—is an understatement. I devoured this book. I want to reread this book, already. I want each and every romance person out there to read this book. Brayden is such a dirty talker…and I loved every word. I heard a lot about this book from my book friends. So I one-clicked when it released. I’m digging the taboo reads lately, and if you follow this blog or our Facebook page, or know me from Shrike Bikes, you know I’m a fan of the step-brother trend in books. This is by far MY FAVORITE step-brother read to date. It’s a top read so far this year. It’s a top NA read, ever. So why did I wait to read this book?… Read more »

Jana’s Review of CODA by CD Reiss

Jana’s Review of CODA by CD Reiss

WHY I thought this was going to be a fluff piece, I do not know. I’ve read all the books, obviously. No one jumps in on book 9 if they haven’t read the first 8, unless they live in trollville. So I imagined we were getting a sweet little Happily Ever After with this final book. Two hundred pages of babies & puppies & and a rocking sex life in a magical land where babies never cry and no one argues over why the dog peed on the carpet again. Um, not so much. Nope. Coda is a real book. Gut wrenchingly real. Painfully real. Honestly real. And for that, thank you. Because we’ve all read the swan song finale books that are in the end, not that satisfying. Because we think we want 200 pages of unicorns, but when we get them, we end up kinda shrugging and saying,… Read more »

TOUR Review: Holding Strong by Lori Foster

TOUR Review: Holding Strong by Lori Foster

Kristi’s Thoughts… I need to begin with how much I loved, Loved, LOVED Lori Foster’s SBC series. I read them awhile ago, awhile ago meaning in paperback form, prior to my eReader. So I’ve been a fan for a long time. I was stoked to receive an ARC of this book and dove right in. Denver and Cherry are an explosive couple. If you’re a fan of insta-love and insta-lust, you will love this book. I think it was an instant pairing because I’m assuming in book one, there is build up, but since I didn’t read book one, I’m only guessing. I love an alpha man and Denver is about as alpha and controlling as they come. Cherry has a shady past and when that past resurfaces— Denver stakes his claim and wants to protect her from any harm. If I’m honest, this isn’t my favorite Lori Foster book,… Read more »

REVIEW: Hate F*@k:part one

REVIEW: Hate F*@k:part one

From the Inside Flap —excerpt–  With a thunk, I drop my forehead to the desk. Fuck. My. Life. I only wallow in self-pity for a minute. My boss is right. I can go home and knit, and at least if I’m there, my co-workers will be able to come and go as they please. It’s not like I’m being super productive or anything. I yank my bag out from under the desk, stick Ellen’s list of website fixes into the outside pocket, because those I can do from home, and slide on my oversized, extra-dark sunglasses. No way are those assholes getting a picture of my whole face. I don’t bother to say goodbye. I just power down my computer and head for the back staircase. There’s a gated backyard that leads to an alleyway, and I can dash across it into the back of the import/export shop across the way. From… Read more »

Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward

Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward

As I’m reorganizing my computer files, I realized I wrote this review when I finished Stepbrother Dearest in the middle of the night, and never posted! I loved this book. I immediately PMed the author on Facebook, and picked up her other works. There is something about this story that made me fall hard, and let me tell you, this was a top 2014 read for me. Here’s my long overdue review! I wrote this October 19, 2014… There’s nothing I love more than finding a new book that I can’t put down. Reading this book made my weekend, hell, it probably made my month. It definitely made my top list of books I read this year. This book has it all-well all the ingredients that make it a favorite book of mine, especially forbidden love. Part one introduces the characters, Greta and Elec who are step siblings who are… Read more »

STOP what you’re reading… You’re going to want to read THE DEAL…

STOP what you’re reading… You’re going to want to read THE DEAL…

Ok, I rarely write reviews on books that I enjoyed reading, not because I want to, but because I’m too f**king busy. But, I just can’t stop myself from wanting to spread the word about an amazing New Adult book I read weeks ago… yes, weeks ago, but I just can’t stop thinking about it. It is THAT good. It’s so good that I gifted it to my friends. Who in return sent me texts and PMs on Facebook that went something like this: Friend: I finished The Deal. Me: Wasn’t it the best? Friend: I want Garrett. Me: Me too!!!! He’s so great. Love him! Friend: No, I really want him. In my bed, in my life, he’s my soulmate. Me: I know, I totally understand. Friend: No I really don’t think you are understanding… I NEED HIM. I’m not ready to say good bye. I need more. Me:… Read more »
