Ava Grace Landy’s music career is humming along until a shakeup at her label jeopardizes her recording contract and curses her with the world’s worst boss. Determined to satisfy him, she partners with Trinity Distillery to access a larger male audience. To her surprise, she’s the one who’s satisfied—by none other than Jonah Beck, the gorgeous, yet gruff man behind the bourbon.
No doubt about it, bourbon runs in Beck’s blood. But it’s audacious Ava Grace who makes it run hot.

Though he’s convinced their lives don’t mix—like a terrible cocktail—he can’t keep his hands off the alluring country star.
Ava Grace and Beck try to keep their intoxicating relationship private, but the glare of her fame is too bright, revealing secrets they both want to remain hidden. With a spotlight shining on his tumultuous past, their future is at risk. Now they must decide if being together is worth sacrificing the career she loves and the company he’s poured his heart and soul into.

REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

It's been a long while since I've read a book by Jenna Sutton, but I got to say her writing is just as wonderful as I remember it being. Barreled Over was a really amazing contemporary romance. First off, I loved these characters. Ava Grace and Beck were both great characters that I loved more than anything. They both had their issues, but at the end of the day both of these characters deserved their happy ending. Their relationship was everything I was expecting it to be and more. I really loved everything about how the author decided to got about these two characters's romance. But what I loved most about their relationship was how normal it was once they were a couple. All of the problems these two faced were normal couple things instead of big over the top hurdles and that was really nice for a change. Overall, this book was a fun and sexy, but still really sweet romance. It was the perfect beginning to a new series and I can't wait to read more about these characters in the future. Of course, I really recommend it!

COVER REVEAL: Rush by Molly McLain


He’s a stranger.
An unexpected surprise.
A risk I have no choice but to take, thanks to this blizzard.

I shouldn’t want him.
But his touch and his kisses…
They’re the perfect distraction.
Until this passes, anyway.

My instincts said I’d be fine, but I should have listened to my head.
Things that are so easy…so comfortable…so perfect…
Are usually too good to be true.

No matter how potent the rush.

COVER REVEAL: Baby Daddy by Kendall Ryan



A hot and hilarious new standalone from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan.


We met in a trapped elevator.



Emmett was on his way to work, sophisticated and handsome in his tailored suit and tie.



I was on my way to the sperm bank. Awkward, right?



At thirty-five, my life hadn’t taken the path I thought it would and I was tired of waiting—I wanted a baby. And I was ready to take matters into my own hands to make it happen.



After our ill-fated elevator encounter, Emmett insisted on taking me to dinner—he also insisted on something else—that I ditch my plan involving a turkey baster and let him do the job. He would be my baby daddy. He was a wealthy and powerful CEO with little interest in diapers or playdates. And since he didn’t want kids, I’d be on my own once his bun was in my oven, free to go my own way.



But once his baby was inside me, it was like a switch had been flipped, and I got a whole lot more than I ever bargained for. 



This full-length standalone contains a hot, swoonworthy hero, lots of playful banter and some hot baby-making ! Enjoy.

COVER REVEAL: The Upside To Being Single by Emma Hart



If anyone asks, I knew better than to flash my boobs for Mardi Gras beads.



I still don’t know why I did it.

Maybe it was the dare from my two best friends. 

Maybe it was the guys on the balcony saying they’d throw Fireball shots with the beads.

Or maybe it was the quiet guy in the corner of that same balcony with piercing gray eyes, wavy dark hair, and a smile so tempting I wanted to climb up there and lick it off his face.

Maybe it was because I never thought I’d see them again.

Not that it matters. Not today.

Because the hotel I manage was finally bought—and the guy who walks in and introduces himself as my new boss is Mr. Tall, Dark, and Silent.



There are many upsides to being single.

Your new boss knowing what your boobs look like?

Not one of them.

Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.

She likes to be busy—unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.

EXCERPT

“Do you know how to drink bourbon?”
She stared down into the tumbler before looking back at him. “With my mouth,” she answered, her voice as dry as a creek during a drought.
Her quip made him laugh, but it died in his throat when he realized he couldn’t remember the last time he’d been amused and aroused at the same time. She was even more dangerous than he’d thought.
“Bourbon is a sipping whiskey, not a slam-it-back whiskey,” he explained. “You have to take your time with it.” He gestured to the tumbler. “Hold your glass in both hands for a few seconds to warm the bourbon.”
She immediately wrapped her fingers around the tumbler, her nails shimmering with sparkly beige polish. He wondered what those fingers would feel like wrapped around his cock, and he barely bit back a groan.
“What next?” she asked. “Should I swirl it around?”
“Bourbon isn’t watered-down grape juice. You shouldn’t swirl it or stick your nose into your glass.”
“Watered-down grape juice?”
“Also known as wine.”
“I don’t like wine,” she said as if she were confessing a terrible crime. “I like beer better.”
“Me too.” He picked up an empty tumbler. “Place your nose just above the rim of the glass.” He showed her what he meant. “Open your mouth a bit and breathe through your mouth and nose at the same time.”
She followed his lead, and he said, “You should be able to smell vanilla and caramel.” Nodding, she said, “I smell it.”
“Now sip just enough bourbon to cover your tongue. Part your lips slightly and draw in some air over the liquid. Hold it in your mouth for a few seconds and let it wash over your tongue.”
She followed his instructions, and he noticed a droplet of liquid glistening on her lower lip. Her pink tongue darted out to catch it, and in that moment, he couldn’t think of anything he wanted more than to sip bourbon from her mouth.
An image flashed across his mind—Ava Grace’s smooth skin drenched in Trinity, the liquor dribbling over her breasts and pooling in her belly button before trickling into the fluff on her pussy. He’d suck every last droplet off her body, starting with her nipples and ending with her clit.
“What next?” Ava Grace asked, forcing his mind back to their bourbon lesson.
Trying to ignore his thickened cock, he said, “Now take a swallow.”
She raised her glass and took a drink. He gave her a moment before asking, “Did you feel it on the way down?”
She placed her hand on her throat, just above the smooth skin of her chest. “Feels like fire,” she gasped.
He plucked the glass from her hand. “Yeah, it could be smoother.”
Leaning over, he grabbed a bottle of Trinity and removed the cork. After splashing some into an empty tumbler, he held it up.
“This was five years in the making. It won the bronze medal in the International Spirits Competition last year.”
Passing the tumbler to her, he said, “Same process.”
He crossed his arms over his chest while she drank his pride and joy. His blood, sweat, and tears.
His future.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and as excited for what's to come in 2018 as I am. I have to admit like most people, my 2017 was kind of a disaster as a result my blogging suffered a lot. But I'm really embracing the whole "new year, new me" philosophy this year and I am ready to get myself back on track both personally and in my blogging things and I'm already off to a great start.

First off, last week I finally put in my two weeks at a job that I hated as a sales associate at Staples and recently started working as bookseller part-time at my local Barnes & Noble Book Store. Working at B&N is by no means my end game, but at the moment I'm a million times more happy there and the hours there are going to allow me to dedicate more time to blogging in the coming months.

Secondly, I've become dedicated and more motivated to take care of myself this year. This started already late last year with me changing the way I eat, joining a gym, and more importantly since my mental health is just as important as my physical health, I made a big move from NYC to Lancaster County, PA changing the pace of my day to day and I also cut a lot of toxic people and fake friends from my life letting me enter this year feeling much more lighter and confident.

Thirdly, and this one pertains specifically to my blogging I am going to be changing the way that I run things on here. First off, I going to cut back on the blog tours and such that I take part in. Trying to stay on schedule and keep track of everything was to stressful and draining and it was really taking the fun out of blogging. Instead I'm going to focus more on just reading and reviewing like I did when I first started this blog. And going along with that, last year I got severely behind on my reviewing (if you're one of those authors who I still owe a review to, I'm sorry and I promise I'm working on it),  so for a limited time I'm adding a new feature to my blog which I'm tentatively referring to as "Finally Fridays" were I will review books that I read in 2017, but didn't get to review in time. I'm hopeful that I'll be able to catch in a month or two and you all can hold me to that.

So moving on, what are some of y'all's goals and resolutions for 2018?

REVIEW: A Match Made in Heather by Anna Harrington


WHEN HIGHLAND HEARTS COLLIDE...
Arabel Rowland was the laird’s daughter, courted by sons of dukes and as wild and untamed as the Highlands around her. Garrick McGuiness was nothing more than a penniless, nameless Scot working in the Rowland stables with nothing to offer but his heart. On the eve when they were to elope, Arabel is forced to make a decision that changes both of their lives—one that drives them apart for a decade.
SPARKS ARE SURE TO FLY!
Ten years later, Garrick is now Earl of Townsend and surprised to receive word of an inheritance from the Rowlands—and simply stunned to learn that he must share that inheritance with the one woman he hoped never to see again. His plan is to fulfill the will's requirement, take the money, and never return to Scotland again. But when the deadly secret that came between them is revealed, he finds himself experiencing the Highlands—and his feelings toward Arabel—in a way he never did before.
Fate tore them apart, but now he’s back in her life with status, money and a title. Can they let go of past hurts and find love?

REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

The only complaint I have about this book was that it was only a short novella and I needed/wanted to read so much more about these characters. Other than that this book was a flawless historical romance read. The heroine, Arabel, was simply wonderful and the hero, Garrick, was exactly how I love my historical romance heroes, brooding and out for revenge, but then begins to doubt his resolve because of the heroine's affect on him. While I loved the characters, what really made this book for me was the fact that it was a second chance romance. A couple reconnecting after years of being apart is always such a satisfying plot for me to read and the version of it that Anna Harrington crafted in this book was especially satisfying and amazing. Overall, I absolutely loved this book and couldn't get enough of it! Anna Harrington has really outdone herself again. 

REVIEW: Brazilian Surrender by Carmen Falcone


Psychology student Camila Duarte is finally on her own, living in NYC and away from her overprotective brothers. Her serenity quakes when she receives terrorizing letters. When the threats ramp up, she hires the best problem solver in the business to protect her and look for the criminal. 

After losing his wife and kid, Jaeger Bauer left the NYPD and has one simple rule: don’t get attached. A job is just a job. Working close to Camila, however, puts his remarkable self-control to the test. He wants to pursue her, even though they are complete opposites and want different things. As the stakes get higher, Jaeger needs to choose between protecting his client…or surrendering to desire and jeopardizing the entire mission.

REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars

Brazilian Surrender was another great addition to Carmen Falcone's Brazilians series. It made me so happy to read about Camila finally getting her own HEA like her brothers. This story truly was wonderful. I had already loved Camila and this book just made me lover her even more. The more that I think of her the more I realize that she is truly my most favorite heroine in this series. I also really loved the hero in this book. Jaeger was so perfect for Camila and I really loved the way that their relationship developed while he investigated the threats she was receiving. But as much as I loved the relationship between Jaeger and Camila, I got to say the part of the book focused on the threats Camila was getting kind of fell short for me. Although, at the the same time I have to give the author props for actually managing to surprise me with who was behind the threats. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I really recommend it!
