Ever since, Alexa has worked to turn her life in a different direction and forge her own identity outside of his terrible secrets. But when she meets a man who’s as damaged by her father’s mistakes as she is, Alexa must help him.

Caine Carraway wants nothing to do with Alexa’s efforts at redemption, but it’s not so easy to push her away. Determined to make her hate him, he brings her to the edge of her patience and waits for her to walk away. But his actions only draw them together and, despite the odds, they begin an intense and explosive affair.

Only Caine knows he can never be the white knight that Alexa has always longed for. And when they’re on the precipice of danger, he finds he’ll do anything to protect either one of them from being hurt again…

Review: The Redeemer

The Redeemer
The Redeemer by J.D. Chase

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

oh my God I am so glad I am finally finished reading this atrocious book. It took me almost a week (felt like year) to read this thing.
Do your self a favor and move on to the next book in your reading list and just skip this horrible story.
It was not bad enough I put myself through The Player. I don’t know why I felt the need to be punished and read this story.
This book was all over the place.

The Pact by Karina Halle

                                                         It all started with a pinky swear…


coverLinden McGregor is tall, rugged, and gunslinger handsome; a helicopter pilot with a Scottish brogue and charm to spare. He’s also one of Stephanie Robson’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as she’s known him.

Beautiful, funny and an ambitious businesswoman (with one hell of an ass), Stephanie Robson is one of Linden McGregor’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as he’s known her.

But some relationships can’t be boxed, can’t be classified, can’t be tamed.

Back in their mid-twenties and tired of the competitive hit-or-miss dating scene of San Francisco, Steph and Linden made a pact to marry each other if neither one of them are in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty.

It sounds like fun and games but as the years to thirty tick past and lovers come and go out of their lives, the pact becomes larger than life.
Sex is inevitable. Friendships are tested. Hearts are on the line.

The pact is about to change everything.

Review: Enjoying the Chase

Enjoying the Chase Enjoying the Chase by Kirsty Moseley My rating: 4 of 5 stars This would never happen. You have a guy who is super hot, goes home with a girl every time he goes out, lusting after a girl who will not sleep with him until she has fallen for him. In what world would a man living that lifestyle go over four months without any sexual contact? If he is as hot as he says he is, then in what world would any girl resist him for four months. The story is really cute, you can see he is changing for her and they are falling for each other as the pick up lines get more and more cheesy. It is a bit too long but worth the read. It is a change from other books which tend to be emotional roller coasters. If you want some light reading with some romance in it, this is the book for you. Oh and it’s a great resource for cheesy pick up lines. Here’s my favorite: I grinned and shook my head, she really was funny. “No actually I was going to bet you $20 that I could kiss you, without using my lips.” I stated crossing my arms over my chest confidently. Her nose crinkled up as she frowned and bit her lip thinking about what I said. “That’s impossible. You can’t kiss someone without using your lips.” she said looking at me like I was crazy. I smirked at her letting her think about it, she hadn’t seen this before and I was extremely grateful. “Ok yeah, I’ll take that bet.” she said smiling confidently. I stepped closer to her and she instantly stepped back bumping into the wall behind her. I smiled, she looked like a deer trapped in the headlights of an oncoming car, so cute and vulnerable that it made my dick shift in my jeans. I bent my head slowly towards hers making her breathing speed up as her eyes never left mine. I pressed my lips against hers gently and tried not to moan at the soft feel of them. Oh shit I shouldn’t have kissed her because now I didn’t want to leave. My whole body was itching to grab hold of her and kiss the life out of her and hear her moan my name. I forced myself to pull back after a couple of seconds. “I lost.” I whispered to her obviously shocked face View all my reviews

Entwined with You

I was very anxiously waiting for this book for what seemed like a very long time. When I first read Bared to You by Silvia Day last year, I was not too crazy about the book. In fact the review I wrote was less than complimentary. Then I read the book again, and then again because the story really grew on me. It was at a time in when I really needed to read a love story. I went back and forth from Bared to You and Fifty Shades of Grey. 

I really stated started falling for the love story. There were still some parts of the writing which I felt were not the best but the story was sweet. Then I moved on to Reflected to You and I as really hooked. Yes, we can do without all the side stories which somehow hold no relevance to Eva and Gideon’s story but it’s a good break. I really looked for closure with the third installment of what was originally supposed to be a trilogy. I have read the other reviews and I see some readers are seriously pissed about there being five books instead of three. I am sure there would have been a way to close out this love story in this book.

With two more books what we can only look forward to is more hot love scenes and more drawn out drama with the ancillary characters. Do we really need to know about her boss and his boyfriend? No. That could be another book. Do we need to know about her mom and dad? No. Cary and his indecision being gay or bi? No. Take all these out and we would have had the end of a great love story.

What we can expect from book 4? The unnecessary story about Eva wanting to be “friends” with her ex-boyfriend who when she sees him she just wants to throw herself at him all the while telling herself she loves Gideon. Really? So twenty-five percent of the book will be about that. Then all the mess with her mom and dad. And how could be possibly for the mob story twist? This just makes the story more convoluted.

Book 5? A big ass wedding, all the works. Everyone lives happily ever after. Of course the sadist in me will wait for all these books and will read them and love the story after all. That’s just how fickle I am.

I liked this book. I will probably read it a couple of time before book 4 comes out. The story is sweet. I love Gideon. Who does not. I think Eva is too needy and selfish. But that is what we are supposed to think, right? Everyone else just fills the word requirement.

I have already recommended this book to a few of my friends, it’s a good story.

Here’s the summary:

From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside–so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat.

No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession…

Calculated in Death

J.D. Robb once again delivers a great mystery. I was gripped from the moment I started to read this to the very end. I started reading the In Death series last year. There is just enough action and suspense with a dash of romance to keep me interested. It reminds me slightly of the movie Bladerunner. Set in the future but with some things from the present included to keep it from being to imaginary. I have been a fan of Nora Roberts and also J.D. Robb and look forward to reading many more books by her in the future. I am anxiously awaiting the next book of the In Death series coming out this September!

Here’s what the book is about:

On Manhattan’s Upper East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.

A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Marta’s murder was the work of a killer who’s trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

But when someone steals the files out of Marta’s office, Eve must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarke’s world of big business to figure out who’s cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer’s violent streak begins to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait. . . .
