About BURN FOR ME: A sexy category romance novella from Entangled’s Brazen imprint… She’s the one fire he can’t put out… Jamie Lansing has had it bad for firefighter Smith Grayson for as long as they’ve been friends.

REVIEW:  Every Second with You

REVIEW: Every Second with You

I enjoyed getting to know Trey and Harley in The Thrill of It. Their circumstances were refreshing and interesting. If you haven’t read the The Thrill of It, book one; please do not read any further as there may be spoilers. Book one ends and leaves you with wondering whether or not Harley is indeed pregnant, and if she is, how it is going to impact not only her new life, but also the life of her boyfriend, Trey. A baby just may destroy him and set him up for a relapse in the addiction he’s been fighting to overcome. I think that this story could have gone in several different directions, taking the reader on a journey of emotional chaos. I am so glad the author decided against the roller coaster ride of what-ifs, assumptions, and could of beens. I hate when the twist in a book was based… Read more »

Throwback Review of The Thrill of It by Lauren Blakely

Throwback Review of The Thrill of It by Lauren Blakely

Here’s a THROWBACK review of The Thrill of It, Book 1 in the No Regrets series. This is a new adult story about trying to understand love when you feel like you don’t deserve it, it’s about trying to be able to differentiate between lust and love. Meet Harley, a young college student who was raised in NYC by her successful journalist mother, who wanted and treated her as a friend, not a daughter. The dynamic between Harley and her mom is so intriguing. My heart broke for this sweet girl who only wanted to feel loved. Harley is beautiful, she’s quiet and shy, she’s smart and creative, she’s also a high class call girl, oh yeah, and a virgin. Yes, a virgin. No one believes that she’s still a virgin, especially the person blackmailing her into writing her story.  Nice twist? I thought so! Meet Trey, a hot college… Read more »
