The Scars That
Define Us is book #2 in The Devil’s Dust MC Series by M.N Forby, I LOVED book
#1 What Doesn’t Destroy Us here’s a link
review. I was lucky enough to be given an ARC of this book in exchange for
an honest review so here goes.....
Book #1 What Doesn’t Destroy Us set the bar
high and it ended on a killer cliff-hanger. I’ll be honest I did stalk the
author ever so slightly begging for a copy of the second book lol ;).
So your asking was it worth it.... hmmmm....
HELL YES it was, this book has you on the edge of your seat from the get go.
Will he forgive her, will she forgive him, Shadow and Dani have an incredibly
complex relationship but it grabs you and draws you in.
They are well beyond the realms of healthy,
normal relationships and they are half way to obsessed and suffocating. For
some reason this totally works for them and to be honest it shouldn’t but it
This book seems a lot more graphically violent than
the first book and that might not be for everyone but if you are a fan of MC
books this wont phase you at all.
I’m a fairly recent convertee to MC books and
the sexy hunks of biker man, but god Shadow just makes me a puddle of mush. He
should be an arsehole, he’s commandeering and rude, he treats Dani like she is
property. The thing is I LIKE IT!!!!!! Every feminist in the world has just
gasped in disgust but everything about him turns me on!!!!
Jesus let’s just talk about the sex for a minute....
whewwwwww its HAWT!!! As a couple
they are raw and animalistic and I’d be lying
if it didn’t admit that I was squirming in my seat. (The hubbys in for it later
I’m sorry to say that Dani’s mom kind of got her
just desserts, Karma’s a bitch baby!!!
This book has some kick ass action as well as
the dysfunctional romance and all hail Bobby in all of his badass brilliance.
Thank the lord there is a 3rd book
and I can almost guarantee I’m going to be harassing M.N Forby for a copy so
watch this space.
I loved this book, its sexy and dirty and just
brilliant 5 stars!!!

- Book 1 of the 4-book series THE STARK AFFAIR
by Skylar Cross
Colton Stark is
filthy rich. A billionaire playboy who drives fast and plays hard, he enjoys an
endless stream of party girls... at his mansion, on his yacht, and in his
private jet. He's also top of
Miami-Dade Police Department's list of suspected narcotics traffickers. Tough girl cop
Sofia grew up on the mean streets of Miami, unafraid to kick anyone's ass. When
asked to investigate Colton, she doesn't even consider it a challenge. Until she comes
face-to-face with Colton Stark's penetrating blue eyes. After a steamy
meeting at his South Beach club, Sofia finds herself playing a dangerous but
sexy game with her own principles. As evidence mounts of Colton Stark's dirty dealings, together
they spark a bonfire of passionate heat.
The Stark Affair Book One: Heat is the first
book I have read by this author, I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange
for an honest review so here goes....
God where to start with this novella length story,
well considering its short Skylar Cross has managed to pack in some serious
I’m not sure what genre this book is classed as
but as far as I’m concerned it erotica with a capital E!!!!
Skylar Cross is a dirty, dirty, dirty minded
If the edgier side of sex makes you cringe then
this is not the book for you there’s descriptive anal and some girl on girl
action in fact id probably say that there not much vanilla about this story!!
That being said there’s also a deeper story
going on in fact I’m totally intrigued. Colton Stark is your typical genius but
there’s something going on with his father’s company where he is the figure
head but is not actually in charge. Personally I get the impression his character
may be based on Ironman himself good old Tony Stark but who knows.
I’m really not sure what to think about Sofia she’s
an ass kicking cop that swings both ways, she’s described as looking like
Michelle Rodriguez. Other than that I didn’t really get a feel for her
I’m not sure what’s really going on with Colton
and the ‘Group’ he’s organized but I’m sure the story will unfold and answer
some of the questions raised during the next three parts.
This book is short and filthy but I need to know
what happens next, Skylar Cross managed to write the prefect suck in start to a
series. It finishes just as it starts to get good so roll on part two but for
Part one I give it 3.5 stars.
Anna Jameson can't wait to escape the hell hole that her cousin has left her in. Desperate to escape her past, the idea of moving to stay with Holly whilst she got her head together sounded like the perfect plan... Until Holly upped and left, leaving Anna to pick up the mess that she left behind.
Jensen Blake knows what he wants and will not be told otherwise. Obedience and control are what he knows best. With demons of his own, he has spent most of his adult life traveling from place to place the moment things started to become predictable.
When Jensen and Anna are pushed together, an instant dislike simmers between them. Anna hates bad boys. She has witnessed enough of them to last her a lifetime.
The sexual attraction between them is evident but will that only make things harder for them both to handle?
Welcome to the crazy and hectic life that is me... A fun, loving mum of one special little boy, girlfriend (I'm sure it should be wife by now!!) and an overall crazy, happy go lucky girl from England.
I have always had a passion for reading and writing. Wherever I am, my book reader is never far behind along with a mug of coffee.
I found myself wanting to write from a young age, I have quite a few hidden stories on my computer somewhere, maybe I will have to dig them out and play around with them at some point.

and confuses him.

feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized
he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he
appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can

she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life
he once had without tearing apart his family?

This is the second book I have read by Melissa Foster, I was gifted this book
in exchange for an honest review so here goes....
This book is one
of the biggest loads of cheese filled, cheese flavoured, cheese I’ve ever
Do you know
what.... What’s not to love about a cheesy love story?
I’m not sure how
old Melissa Foster is but regardless she read Mills & Boon, id actually lay
money on the fact that she loved Mills & Boon. Well Melissa so do I, so
does my mom and so did my grandma. In my opinion Mills & Boon is so
incredibly successful because what they do they do exceptionally well.
That’s how I feel
about this author, Melissa Foster does old school cheesy romance incredibly
well, you know exactly what you are going to get and you know that you are
going to enjoy it.
Jenna is a
classic firecracker with a bit of a saucy edge and Pete is an old fashioned
gentleman, this is classic romance territory and them as a couple works
I liked that they
had a deeper connection than just sex and I loved the relationship between
Jenna and her girlfriends.
My main issue
with this book is that it hinted at being a tiny bit smuttier than normal, hell
anal was mentioned. Unfortunately this book is a bit of a tease as it was straight
down the line vanilla, nothing wrong with it but I did have my hopes up for a
bit of smut lol.
I enjoyed this book;
I read a wide variety of romance from YA and NA to contemporary and
dark romances. But I never forget what got me hooked on romance novels to start
off with and that’s stories just like this!!
This is a great
standalone novel and although I’m tempted to read the books before and after I’m
confident that I could pick up another book in the series and not feel confused
or left out of the character loops.
This book is the
perfect book for a hot bath and a glass of wine, for me it just needed a smidge
less cheese so 3.5 stars!
Foster is a wonderful connector of readers and books, a friend of authors, and
a tireless advocate for women. She is the real deal"-- Bestselling
sets Melissa Foster apart are her compelling characters who you care
about... desperately. This is psychological suspense at its most
chilling. I dare you to read the first chapter and not be hooked."

Knowing a fighter’s desires and needs are one
thing, but actually experiencing them is another. A Fighter’s Desire gives you
not one, but two stories full of hardcore passion, angst, and action that’ll
leave you breathless and aching for more.
Part One: Ryley and Camden Jameson, well-known
MMA fighters and identical twins, were just as aggressive and passionate in the
bed as they were in the ring. They loved a good fight, and that’s exactly what
they got when they met Ashleigh Warren. The brothers had a habit of sharing
things—including women—and she happened to be the only one they truly craved.
However, the problem was getting her to agree to their proposition. It was one
she couldn’t refuse, but she knew it wouldn’t be easy to win. Nonetheless, she
sure as hell was going to enjoy it.
Part Two: Fighting temptation isn’t easy when
you’re constantly around the one person you’ve desired more than any other.
Gabriella Reynolds was warned by her brother, MMA Heavyweight Champion Matt
Reynolds, to stay away from his friends; they only wanted one thing, and in the
end they’d break her heart. She heard it, but the desire to have the one man
she couldn’t led her down the forbidden path to pursue him; he also happens to
be one of her brother’s best friends. Tyler Rushing can’t deny his attraction
to her, and he’s afraid she’ll want more than what he can give her. When he
finds out that’s not the case … everything changes. They have no choice but to
keep their time a secret, and it’s a secret that’ll stay with them forever.
A Fighter’s Desire by L.P. Dover includes
books #0.5 and #0.6 in the gloves off series.
This is the first book I have read by this
author and I was given this in exchange for an honest review so here goes...
A Fighter’s Desire is literally a tale of two
Part one is about Ashleigh and the twins Ryley
Those twins are naughty, naughty boys and their
story starts off promisingly kinky with threesomes and ropes and all sorts lol.
I love the twins they are identical but polar
opposites, Ryley is adorable and seems genuinely quite smitten with Ashleigh.
Camden on the other hand just seems like an asshole!!!
This short intro to the characters doesn't end
like I was expecting but it has definitely made me intrigued to find out what happens
in Ryley’s book which is book #2 in the series.
On to Tyler and Gabriella's novella, Tyler is
Gabriella's fantasy man and I loved how this story played out.
Tyler might be a player but he seems to really
care about Gabriella but I don't get the impression theirs is a happily ever
after love more of a enjoy the moment kind of passion.
I loved that Gabriella is a kick ass fighter too
but I thought she needed more confidence in herself.
The sex for both couples is steamy but I kind of
expected it to be a bit saucier.
These novellas are both short but sweet and do a
fab job of introducing all of the main characters.
They have definitely whetted my appetite for
the rest of the series. I've got book #1 Tyler's Undoing on my kindle so watch
this space for my review soon.
break is supposed to be a week of fun in the sun for three childhood friends
about to graduate from college. But one of them is ready to get her game on
Castle is an expert archer and a fierce warrior—in her favorite video game,
anyway. But college life was a program she couldn’t quite master. To land a
cybertech job without a degree, she’s entering a “hackfest” over spring
break—where she also hopes to meet the sweet gamer who’s been flirting with her
online. Instead, she runs into the hot guy who walked away years ago, and can’t
fight the desire that comes rushing back.
Best has never gotten over Charlie, whose kisses were always as deliciously
creative as her coding. But now that they’re face to face again, he doesn’t
know how to admit that her online admirer is really him—or how to convince her
that he’s offering her a job for her incredible skills, not her sex appeal. Can
Jonah cut through their communication glitches and persuade Charlie that the
next level up for them should be forever?
Her Perfect Game
is book #2 in the Hot & Needy Series by Shannyn Schroeder. I read and
enjoyed the first book Her Best Shot here’s a link to my
review. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so
Again like the
first book in the series this is only a short novel probably closer to novella
Although it’s a
quick read I do feel like I actually got to know the characters and I started
to invest in their relationship.
I like Charlie she’s
kind of badass which is fab considering that both her and Jonah are big ole
I’m going to be
honest and say that this book had me picturing the big bang theory with all of
the comicon and Joss Whedon references, for me that’s fab its one of my
favourite shows lol.
I do have a
massive criticism though and it’s that Jonah and Charlie have a history but
there just wasn’t enough of a back story. I don’t feel like I really understood
why they never worked in the first place. This story posed a lot of questions
but didn’t actually answer most of them.
They are a cute
couple and I wanted them to be together and happy but a bit more passion would
have gone a long way.
I’m not at all
sure what to make of Jonah he was sweet but he is like Lenard from big bang he’s
super sweet but just not overtly sexy.
Don’t get me
wrong I enjoyed this book it’s cute and I’m glad they get a HEA but it just wasn’t
my favourite 3.5 stars.

around a large Irish-American family in Chicago and the new Hot & Nerdy

right, you didn’t. All you had to do was deny we had any kind of relationship.”

résumé after graduation. You won’t need to network. The jobs will be there.”

won’t be a graduation. I dropped out.”

couldn’t look at his face knowing in a moment it would be filled with
disappointment. She raced to her room, packed her stuff, and checked out to go

But they loved what I could offer them. Sex. A one-night stand. A story to tell their friends about how they slept with a rocker. With Grant McDermott. I was a name. A symbol. Nothing more.

As the title of my blog gives away I read a lot!!! I love the escapism of a good book and sometimes I even enjoy the release I get from moaning about a rubbish book.
Im not sure anyone will ever read my reviews but I'm going to do them anyway.... sometimes I read so much and so quickly that I can completely forget what ive read or the reasons I loved them so this way I can gain a little perspective.
I have a facebook page and I would love it if anyone who reads any of my reviews pops over to FB and gives me a quick like.
Also im constantly looking for recommendations so if you've read something you think I would enjoy please comment and let me know.
