I don’t know how it’s possible, or how it even happened, but right now I’m currently reading three books…… Yes, you read that right… Three Books. 

First book I’m reading is a paperback copy of MANWHORE by Katy Evans. Katy Evans is one of my all time favorite authors. I love her worlds and the emotions she puts into her novels. As of right now, I’m only a few chapters into this one and so far it’s a like, not a love. But that could quickly change….hopefully….

Blurb:

Is it possible to expose Chicago’s hottest player—without getting played?

This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.

Mysterious. Privileged. Legendary. His entire life he’s been surrounded by the press as they dig for tidbits to see if his fairytale life is for real or all mirrors and social media lies. Since he hit the scene, his secrets have been his and his alone to keep. And that’s where I come in.

Assigned to investigate Saint and reveal his elusive personality, I’m determined to make him the story that will change my career.

But I never imagined he would change my life. Bit by bit, I start to wonder if I’m the one discovering him…or if he’s uncovering me.

What happens when the man they call Saint, makes you want to sin? 



Second book I’m reading is The Choices I’ve Made by J.L. Berg. I received this book in one of my romance reveal book boxes, and if you all follow me on social media, you may have noticed I’m trying to catch up on my RRBB Bookshelf TBR. I’m legit so behind on that tbr but I’m quickly catching up. J.L. Berg is a new to me author. So far I’m only 23 pages into this one and I don’t know how I feel about it. I do feel that I may already have the ending of this one predicted….We shall see.

Blurb:

I swore I’d never go home again.

With nothing more than a few boxes and a beat up truck, I left behind my old life at the tender age of eighteen to pursue my medical career.

And I never looked back.

Twelve years later, I find myself traveling back to the sandy shores of that North Carolina town where my late father has left me his medical practice. Coming here means facing my past… My memories… And her — Molly McIntyre.

Growing up, Molly had been my entire world, first as a childhood friend and then so much more. We’d made promises to each other back then. Promises I broke when I walked away. And now that I’m back? Well, let’s just say she’s not exactly the head of my welcoming committee. But even she can’t deny the undeniable spark that still burns so brightly between us and soon, we’re tumbling fast and hard into the past.

But I need to keep my eyes set to the future, because mine isn’t here in this dead end town. Not anymore.

All Molly has ever known is here, on this small island. Could I really ask her to give it all up? For me? If I walk away again, will she follow?



And Third, I just started my advanced copy of Insistent by Kaylee Ryan! This is the fourth book in the Soul Serenade series. Ah, I can’t wait to continue reading this one after I finish this post. I miss my rockstar heroes!

Insistent
(Soul Serenade #4)
By: Kaylee Ryan

Release Date: November 27th, 2018
Publisher: Indie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: Arc Received For An Honest Review

Blurb:

She came into my life without warning. It wasn’t love at first sight, but the more time I spent with her, I knew she was the one. Our relationship was complicated, and I knew I had my work cut out for me. I have to prove to her that she’s all I see. That no matter how the past reads, we can re-write the future.

He’s the sexiest one of the group, in my personal opinion. We’re friends, and colleagues, well technically he’s my boss. He’s also the man that consumes my thoughts, and my desires. I have too much at stake to allow myself to jump into bed with him, but I really really want to.

One taste and I know I’ll never be the same. Cassidy can prolong this all she wants, but I know how it ends. When she’s mine.

He’s relentless, and I let him drag me under his spell. It can’t happen again, but Gavin, he’s Insistent that this is just the beginning.

Wow, I read three paperbacks and three Advanced copies this week! The first book I finished was Falling For The Playboy by Kennedy Fox. I did enjoy Falling For The Playboy after the thirty percent point. It was a fun read. However, I found myself skipping through to the good juicy tidbits between maverick and Olivia. But in no way was this a ‘read in one sitting’ for me.

Falling for the Playboy (Bedtime Reads, #2)

Falling For The Playboy
(Bedtime Reads #2)
By: Kennedy Fox

Release Date: November 15th, 2018
Publisher: Indie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: Arc Received For An Honest Review

Blurb:

Never trust a man who gets paid to take off his clothes for a living and then uses it as a pick-up line to get girls in bed with him.

That should’ve been enough for me to call in sick that day.

I’ve worked with male cover models like him before and they’re all the same—smooth-talking, sexy as sin, egotistical know-it-alls who think they’re God’s gift to women—all traits I know to steer clear of.

Assisting authors comes with many perks—reading on the job, using my organizing skills on a daily basis, drinking coffee by the gallons—but Maverick Kingston barges into my life and demands more than I can handle.

When we’re forced to road trip across the country together, he pushes every boundary I have and rearranges my thoughts on playing it safe. And when he “accidentally” drops his towel, he makes it very clear what he’s offering and proves he’s packing more than abs of steel under his clothes.

Working with him was brutal, but falling for him was unexpected.
And playing by the rules will be impossible.



The second book I finished was Open House by T.C. Matson. I received Open House in one of my Romance Reveal Book Boxes and this is the reason why I’m subscribed to this book box! T.C. Matson is a new to me author and I freaking loved this novel! OMG, I actually cried while reading it…. I mean ugly cried. A few situations truly hit at all of my heartstrings. SO. FREAKING. GOOD!

Blurb:

He was all I knew before I didn’t know him anymore…

For eleven years, Riley Stallings remained completely devoted to her longtime boyfriend, Brian Shepard. In the beginning, nothing could put a strain on the newly loves—not even an unplanned pregnancy or her parents disowning her for it. But as time goes on, work absorbs Brian, leaving Riley at home, lonely and empty, to handle everything on her own.

But then she meets him—a man who causes a gravitational pull and prompts the earth to disappear from under her feet. A man who makes her struggle to remember her name—her son’s new teacher.

Knowing all relationships face difficult obstacles, she turns a blind eye and blames the lure on the lack of attention and fights even harder to fix her broken relationship. And then it happens… Brian presents an inconceivable challenge, derailing Riley and forcing new beginnings for everyone. Will their love be enough to weather the storm?



The third book I finished was  also from one of my Romance Reveal Book Boxes. That book being, Taking Chances by Laura Farr. I also really enjoyed this country-esque type novel. I’m definitely going to check out more from Laura Farr in the very near future.

Taking Chances

Taking Chances
(Healing Hearts #1)
By: Laura Farr

Release Date: March 25th, 2017
Publisher: Indie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: Paperback

Blurb:

When Libby Davis loses her best friend in a tragic accident, she can’t find a way through the grief and guilt that consumes her. Desperate to escape the memories that are stopping her from moving on, she visits her Aunt and Uncle on their ranch in Texas.

There she meets Mason Walker, a sexy ranch hand with a mysterious past, and a reputation he wants to leave behind. Despite her reluctance, sparks fly between the two of them, igniting feeling that neither have ever known before.

When someone from Mason’s past starts to cause trouble, will Libby be willing to take a chance on love, or will her already damaged heart not allow her to?



The fourth book I finished was also from my Romance Reveal Book Box. We Were Memories by Brandi Aga. This was an okay read for me. The main female protagonist really got on my nerves with her wishy washiness. I liked the premise of this novel but her character didn’t vibe well with me. I do however, plan on picking up the next book in the series because I’m really intrigued to see where this author is going with this relationship and these people.

We Were Memories

We Were Memories
By: Brandi Aga

Release Date: October 7th, 2017
Publisher: Indie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: Paperback

Blurb:

Someone once told me never leave the one you love for the one you like…

…you just might get something more out of that relationship than you bargained for.

I should have listened…

I never should have stepped foot on that airplane…

But I did.

Sins come in all shapes and sizes. My biggest sin to date comes in the form of sex, tattoos, and Harleys. Roman Blackhart, owner of Blackhart Custom Motorcycles, is all about living life in the fast lane. Our relationship went from zero to one hundred in the blink of an eye. Only problem is, I have a secret. A secret so deep it’s pulling me in two different directions.

Now we’re 1,400 miles of memories and broken hearts. I just hope it’s not too late to put all the pieces back together again.

Note: This is not a traditional fluffy romance.



The Fifth book I finished was an advanced copy of Until Cobi by Aurora Rose Reynolds. I have to say, I missed ARR’s alpha heroes. There is something that compels me to want to pick up every single novel this author writes. Her novels are typically fast paced and on the instalovey side of the spectrum. Until Cobi is a great addition to the Until Series. (My Full Review will be posted closer to release date.)

Until Cobi (Until Him, #3)

Until Cobi

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: Arc Received For An Honest Review

Blurb:

Cobi Mayson knows exactly who Hadley is to him the moment he sees her for the very first time. That doesn’t mean it will be easy for him to convince her to take a chance on him.

Hadley Emerson knows she could fall hard and fast for a guy like Cobi. A man who seems to show up every time she needs him, but she knows better than to just hand over her heart.

Knowing his future with Hadley is on the line, Cobi begins to tie their lives together. As the invisible rope that connects them tightens and things between them heat up, an unknown threat emerges threatening to to take away their happily ever after and send them both into darkness.



And last but certainly not least. I just finished an advanced copy of Sex Material by Victoria Ashley. Victoria Ashley is another author whom I have missed dearly. I love her Alpha asshole type characters. She has a way with writing novels that are deep to the heart but also extremely sexy. I freaking loved Jensen and Cami’s  back and forth relationship. I loved the endless turmoil between the two and watching Jensen’s walls slowly start to come down. It was entertaining as hell. I couldn’t get enough! (My review will be posted closer to release date.)

Blurb:

Sex Material…
It’s what I’m known around town for.
A rock-hard body, covered in tattoos with a sizeable bulge that women spend their nights fantasizing about.
Women track me down, needing someone that will fuck them rough without holding back.
They find me because they need a distraction from reality. They need something to get their mind off of the boyfriend who screwed them over or the job promotion they got passed over on at work.
Sometimes it’s just because they need someone reckless in the bedroom before settling down with the right one.
‘Cause I’m sure as hell not that guy.
Nowhere close.
I’m not the suit wearing, flower-buying guy you take home to meet the parents. I’m not the guy who will make you feel all warm and fucking fuzzy inside.
Not anymore.
I was boyfriend material once. Would’ve even made a good husband. That was before everything good in my world got ripped away, leaving me broken beyond repair.
These women come to me because they need an escape to cope with the real world, but none of them know I need it more than them. I need something to make me feel alive. Something to get my heart beating again.
Then Cami shows up in my hometown, broken-hearted and pissed off at the world, needing an escape from her cheating ex.
She’s the only one that doesn’t want to use my body. In fact, she wants nothing to do with it and has no problems telling me so.
She’s interested in one thing only from me—to move into my rental property. But the problem with that is the more we fight, the deeper she buries herself in my soul.
Sex material is what I’m good at, but for the first time, it may not be enough.

Oh my lord. I have no clue what I’m going to read next. As of right now I have a few advanced copies I need to read before the beginning of December. So in order to stay ahead on my Arc tbr I think I’ll read those bad boys first.

Blurb:

A stand-alone forbidden romance…

People call me callous. Arrogant. Ruthless.
I call myself tenacious.
One of the most powerful attorneys in Charleston, I don’t let anyone or anything stand in my way.
Until a chance encounter changes everything.

One glance.
One touch.
One night.
It only leaves me wanting more.

But Grace is off limits. Most people would even say forbidden.
Everyone knows an attorney can’t sleep with his client.
Too bad I already did.

And even with the threat of losing everything, I don’t know if I can stop myself from having her again..



Rock Rebel (Nothing But Trouble #3)

Rock Rebel
(Nothing But Trouble #3)
By: Tara Leigh
Release Date: December 11th, 2018
Publisher: Forever Yours
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Format: Arc Received Via Netgalley

Blurb:

He’s a rock star with a secret; she’s a pop princess with a painful past, can their forbidden romance survive, or will their lies destroy them both?

I’ve earned my bad reputation.

A few years ago, I was New York City’s hottest classical music prodigy. But I wanted something else, something more. So I chased my real dream, and now… I’m rock royalty. Dax Hughes, lead guitarist of Nothing but Trouble. But to my family and former Juilliard classmates, I’m an outcast. A misfit. A rebel.

They’re not entirely wrong. I don’t give a damn what other people think, and I’m all for breaking the rules… except when it comes to our new opening act, Verity Moore.

Rock gods don’t tour with pop princesses.

It’s not personal. Actually, under that fallen diva reputation, Verity’s incredibly talented. And her fiery redheaded personality is… intriguing. But I’m convinced the skeletons in Verity’s closet are as scandalous as my own, and when we’re not sparring, she has a way of drawing out all those secrets I’m determined to keep hidden.

Yeah. Verity Moore is definitely off-limits . . .
But since when do I give a damn about the rules?



Peace Love and Happy Reading,
