Alex Bishop is your typical cowboy.
Charming, sexy, and wears a panty-melting smirk.
Working on the ranch helped build his solid eight-pack and smoking body. He’s every girl’s wet fantasy and he knows it too. Alex doesn’t follow the rules of your typical playboy bachelor. After wining and dining his dates and giving them the best night of their lives, he always sends flowers and calls the next day—even if it’s to say, let’s just be friends. His mama taught him manners after all and his southern blood knows how to be a gentleman. Still, that isn’t enough to tame the wildest of the Bishop brothers.

River Lancaster has finally met the man of her dreams. Too bad after six months of romantic bliss, she finds out he’s married. With a broken heart and blind rage, she books herself a ticket to Key West, Florida. Tired of cheaters and liars, she’s set on escaping to forget he ever existed. Who needs a man when there’s an all-you-can-drink margarita bar, anyway? That’s what she tells herself until she bumps into the right guy who can make all those bad memories disappear.
Even if it’s only temporarily.

Two weeks on the beach is what they both need. No strings attached, no expectations, no broken hearts. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll change the entire course of their lives in just nine short months.

**A complete standalone contemporary romance with a little southern drama**

Review: NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT by Kristan Higgins —

Review: NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT by Kristan Higgins

Let me start by saying, Now that I Mention It, Kristan Higgins is one of my favorite authors! Last February I read Ms. Higgins novel “On Second Thought” and fell in love with her writing style and the book itself. While I didn’t think I could have a favorite book by her, NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT is definitely my favorite of them. This novel hit the shelves in Dec of 2017 so go ahead and order your copy today.

One step forward. Two steps back. The Tufts scholarship that put Nora Stuart on the path to becoming a Boston medical specialist was a step forward. Being hit by a car and then overhearing her boyfriend hit on another doctor when she thought she was dying? Two major steps back.

Injured in more ways than one, Nora feels her carefully built life cracking at the edges. There’s only one place to land: home. But the tiny Maine community she left fifteen years ago doesn’t necessarily want her. At every turn, someone holds the prodigal daughter of Scupper Island responsible for small-town drama and big-time disappointments.

With a tough islander mother who’s always been distant, a wild-child sister in jail and a withdrawn teenage niece as eager to ditch the island as Nora once was, Nora has her work cut out for her if she’s going to take what might be her last chance to mend the family. Balancing loss and opportunity, dark events from her past with hope for the future, Nora will discover that tackling old pain makes room for promise…and the chance to begin again.



In this novel, Now That You Mention It, I fell in love with main character Nora. How could you not? Nora had quite the life back in high school and her adult life is pretty tough too. I love the strength Nora has to hurdle what’s thrown her way and her ability to move forward. This story was super uplifting and cheerful, also a bit comical at time (two words: dinner party). If your ready to say awwww and omg then grab this book and dive in. If you already have, I would love to hear your thoughts on it!!!




Review: JUST BETWEEN US by Rebecca Drake — January 6, 2018

Review: JUST BETWEEN US by Rebecca Drake

I’m making my way into 2018 with some amazing books and “JUST BETWEEN US” is one on that list. With this novel releasing in just 3 days, I can assure you that it’s one you are going to want to read.

Alison, Julie, Sarah, Heather. Four friends living the suburban ideal. Their jobs are steady, their kids are healthy. They’re as beautiful as their houses. But each of them has a dirty little secret, and hidden behind the veneer of their perfect lives is a crime and a mystery that will consume them all.

Everything starts to unravel when Alison spots a nasty bruise on Heather’s wrist. She shares her suspicions with Julie and Sarah, compelling all three to investigate what looks like an increasingly violent marriage. As mysterious injuries and erratic behavior mount, Heather can no longer deny the abuse, but she refuses to leave her husband. Desperate to save her, Alison and the others dread the phone call telling them that she’s been killed. But when that call finally comes, it’s not Heather who’s dead. In a moment they’ll come to regret, the women must decide what lengths they’ll go to in order to help a friend.

Just Between Us is a thrilling glimpse into the underbelly of suburbia, where not all neighbors can be trusted, and even the closest friends keep dangerous secrets. You never really know what goes on in another person’s mind, or in their marriage.


JUST BETWEEN US is a psychological thriller that leads you to believe everything the author is portraying. Yet you’re also questioning if what you believe could really all be made up. While of course it’s all made up because it’s just a book, Rebecca Drake captures you in a way that no author will have done before. Each character we learn has quirks but some have more than quirks, they are just pure crazy. I really enjoyed this book with all of its drama, secrets and betrayal. If your ready for a 5 star book then purchase this one today!



Review: FULL SERVICE BLONDE by Megan Edwards — December 28, 2017

Review: FULL SERVICE BLONDE by Megan Edwards

Thank you to Smith Publicity for sending me a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

I want to start by telling you that I thoroughly enjoyed “FULL SERVICE BLONDE” by Megan Edwards. I must add that I do regret having not read the first of “A Cooper Black Mystery” but I do feel that it is fine to read as a standalone.

A working girl is found dead in the desert. Can a calendar girl uncover the truth? In this prequel to GETTING OFF ON FRANK SINATRA, it’s Christmastime in Sin City. Aspiring journalist Copper Black meets Victoria McKimber, an outspoken prostitute at one of Nevada’s legal brothels. She’s offered Copper the exclusive right to tell her story. Not only will the Las Vegas Light’s “calendar girl” get a byline, but she can also impress her boyfriend and parents when they arrive for the holidays.

Copper is busy with work, Christmas shopping, and fantasizing about a whole week with her long-distance boyfriend. She’s also helping her brother, a civic-minded pastor who is spearheading plans for a new center to serve the homeless. Things are hectic but under control when shocking news breaks. Victoria McKimber has turned up dead.

As she investigates the violent death, Copper evades enemies, juggles boyfriend, work, and family, and races against time to save her brother from a sinister plot. Unless she can expose the truth about Victoria McKimber, somebody just might get away with murder.



Upon receiving “FULL SERVICE BLONDE”, I did judge the book by its cover. My first thoughts were, “Alright, I’m going to get the inside look at prostitution.” Not that I were ever thinking of becoming one but it must be a job full of ugh well you know. Megan Edwards doesn’t just give you the inside look she brings the drama of it too. I loved Coopers readiness to try to figure out this murder mystery. I also loved Cooper and Michael’s super dysfunctional family. Honestly though, whose family isn’t dysfunctional?! I also loved the bit of romance thrown in the mix and when I say bit I do mean bit. For me it was just enough, since we all know how much I love some romance in the novels I read.

This novel had me staying up late, telling myself “just one more chapter” and it also had me texting my husband to bring it to me to work as I left it at home (and I wanted to read on lunch). Megan Edwards is a new author to me but I will be stalking her for the next release in this “Copper Black Mystery” series. And if you’re reading this Megan, please do hurry up!!



For this fiction, murder mystery with a little romance in the mix novel.

About THE HOOKUP (Moonlight and Motor Oil Series #1):

When the new girl in town, Eliza “Izzy” Forrester decides to hit the local drinking hole, she’s not ready to meet the town’s good, solid guy. She’s definitely not prepared to engage in her very first hookup with him.

Then Izzy wakes up the next morning in Johnny Gamble’s bed and good girl Izzy finds she likes being bad for Johnny.

Even so, Izzy feels Johnny holding her at arm’s length. But Johnny makes it clear he wants more and Izzy already knows she wants as much of hot-in-bed, sweet-out-of-it Johnny Gamble.

Floating on air thinking this is going somewhere, Izzy quickly learns why Johnny holds distant.

He’s in love with someone else. Someone who left him and did it leaving him broken. Whoever was up next would be runner up, second best. Knowing the stakes, Izzy will take what she can get from the gentleman that’s Johnny Gamble. And even knowing his heart might never mend, Johnny can’t seem to stay away from Izzy.

Until out of nowhere, his lost love comes back to town. He’s not going back, but Johnny still knows the right thing to do is let Izzy go.

And Izzy knew the stakes, so she makes it easy and slips though his fingers.

But that’s before Johnny realizes Eliza moved to town to escape danger that’s been swirling around her.

And that’s why Johnny decides to wade in.

That and the fact Eliza Forrester makes breakfast with a canary singing on her shoulder and fills out tight dresses in a way Johnny Gamble cannot get out of his head.

“Izzy?” she answered.
“Hey, I’m home,” I told her.
“Okay, well…how are you?”
How was I?
Johnny’s behavior explained by the sad fact it was the anniversary of his father’s death, but still explained, and he was coming over for dinner the next night, not to mention, after not being affectionate (at all, unless you counted sitting me on the countertop, which I kind of did) after the last time we’d had sex, he made out with me at the door of my car for a good, long, happy while—I was great.
“I’m great,” I told her, opening Serengeti’s stall and moving in, lifting a hand to pat her jaw while she moved her nose to snuffle my neck and blow at my hair.
“Damn,” Deanna muttered.
My hand arrested on Serengeti and I focused on Deanna.
“What?” I asked.
“Damn,” she repeated.
“Damn what?” I asked.
“Well, just to say Johnny Gamble is Johnny Gamble.”
A specific area in my chest squeezed at the way she imparted that obvious but still confusing information.
“What’s that mean?” I asked.
“He’s Johnny Gamble of Gamble Garages. Did he tell you that?”
No he didn’t tell me that.
And suddenly I was embarrassed about something that I hadn’t liked all along.
But it was worse since Deanna knew more about a man I’d slept with than I did.
Serengeti was getting fidgety, so I used my hand on her to lead her out of her stall, and once in the corridor, she trotted out the open bay at the back, directly into her pasture.
I moved to Amaretto as I shared with Deanna, “No, he didn’t tell me that. I mean, we talked but we were also doing other things.” I let that lie. It did, weighty between us on the phone, before I went on, “I don’t know what that means.”
Even though it seemed like I did. Something seemed familiar about that.
“You haven’t lived here long enough,” she murmured while I opened Amaretto’s stall and moved in for some quick pats before I let him loose. Louder, Deanna said, “You know the gas station in town?”
Oh yes.
That was where I’d seen it.
“He owns that?”
“That and seven more of them across three counties. None in the city, just in the counties. Some of them are like mini-mart stores. All of them sell gas and do work on cars.”
That was impressive.





About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.





Review: THE WINTER WEDDING PLAN by Olivia Miles — December 14, 2017

Review: THE WINTER WEDDING PLAN by Olivia Miles

Olivia Miles, you have done it again for me. The Winter Wedding Plan is effortlessly written which left me speed reading until the very end. If you haven’t read her first in the series, One Week to the Wedding, then you may not want to read further. Also, if you haven’t read the first in the series I hope you will read my review on that title here.

Charlotte Daniels has made her share of mistakes, but now that she’s a single mom, she vows to do better–and that starts with a new career. Working at her sister’s event-planning company is just the fresh start she needs.

Kate Daniels has finally forgiven Charlotte for her betrayal, but forgetting it is harder. But as the holidays approach and Kate has her own wedding to plan, she has no choice but to turn to Charlotte for help to throw a high-profile client the holiday party of the season.

Charlotte leaps at the chance to redeem herself . . . until this irresistible client asks her to pretend to be his fiancée for the party. She knows their charade won’t come without consequences–not just for her fresh start with Kate, but also for her own daughter.

As Kate’s wedding draws near and Charlotte’s fake romance starts to feel more and more real, will she fall back into the mistakes of her past, or finally prove herself to Kate once and for all?

After reading the first novel of this series and stumbling upon it at my local Sam’s Club, I knew I had to have a copy. This novel continues the messy situation that Charlotte has gotten herself into but has her also trying to make things right. As I mentioned above, the writing is effortless and the build up was amazing. I loved this book all the way through until the end. Olivia starts to wrap the book up and you think “oh yes, the ending I want” and then the book ends. JUST! ENDS! I can see where she leaves room for the imagination but I would have been much happier with the story painted out by Olivia in a epilogue. I don’t want to leave you thinking I didn’t like this book because I did. However, I wanted it to end with conclusions. I can only hope Olivia has plans to continue this series, there definitely is room for more.

With the way the book ended so abruptly I give this book 4 stars.


What’s next? I’m not sure. I have so many new 2018 books rolling in and it’s going to be hard to pick one. Stay tuned and see what I read next!
