Torch (Take It Off, #1)

Torch (Take It Off, #1) - Cambria Hebert 4.5 StarsOr should I say, 4.5 smoking hot firefighters? ;)This book surpised me, I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. But it was actually really good! There is a great balance of the suspence and romance and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Plus I loved that until the author wanted you to know, you had no freaking clue who the bad guy was. And even after she tells you, she throws in another twist so you're extra surprised at the end lol. This book is super steamy too, sometimes I felt like I was the one of fire. Holt was freaking HOT I loved him. And Katie was great too, she was so sweet. I feel like they are one of those couples I'd see in the store and just sigh because they are just so perfect for each and you can tell they are so freaking happy. Plus I loved that she was short and tiny and he was tall and big, I love those couples, they're so cute!!

A Little Too Far

A Little Too Far - Lisa Desrochers Any of my Goodreads friends that have read this, could you let me know if there is a love triangle?

Unspoken (The Woodlands)

Unspoken - Jen Frederick ARC provided by Netgalley for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book, and do you want to know why? Because of Bo, I freaking loved Bo. I've decided to claim him for myself. Its actually funny because I started out not sure I'd even like him and by the end of the book I was completely in love with him. Let me give you some reasons to love Bo too,"She really it for you?" "You know how it's all about God and country over there in Afghaniston." Gray nodded. "Well, when you find someone like AM, what you felt about the cause, about being a patriot, is like eating eggs from the MRE pack. Dry, tastless, meaningless. It's nothing. I'd kill for her and," I paused, "I'll learn to walk away.""Durning Basic, sometimes you're so tired you can't even get up to piss. You're pushed beyond whatever limits you had set for yourself. You realize that your body can do things that you never imagined. But there are times when you don't think you can go on, and that's when your brother is there to lift you up and push you forward. He yells encouragement when the drill sergeant's shouting obscenities. You know that if you're ever caught by the enemy, your brothers will never stop looking for you. If you're hurt, they'll help heal you. The Corps is a unit of many, not one, but dozens, thousands even who have your back. You can smite one Marine, but a thousand will rise up to avenge him."Ok admit it, you love him too now. You can't have him though! Bo just turned out to be such a beautiful person, on the inside. He is someone I would want at my back, supporting me.AM had her moments for me. I would really like her and then she'd annoy me. I felt like the whole time she was pushing Bo away because she'd heard about all the man-whoring he had done, made her sound like a hypocrite. She was believing all the rumors about him, when she herself had false rumors spead about her. For the most part I liked her though. I thought she was pretty strong, and I loved her speech near the end of the book. I don't think I could have delt with rumors like that as well as she did.I would also like to say that I really love to cover for this one! Its awesome, I love the purple wording and the cover models. Love it!I can't wait for the next Woodlands book, I would highly recommend this series to anyone looking for some hot Marines to read about ;)
Bite Me - Shelly Laurenston Ok I'm confused...I saw the cover and got pretty excited because I thought this one would be about a white tiger shifter, but the fact that Vic has a honey stash makes me think he might be a bear? Or maybe he is a tiger that just likes honey? Idk, but I love the cover and I really want a white tiger shifter book! I might need to go back and see if I can find any mention of Vic in the other books and see if I can find out what he is for sure lol.
Reckless - Skye Jordan How I know this was an awesome book - I didn't want it to freaking end!This book was super hot and sweet and cute and super hot...oh I said that already? Well it needs to be said twice. It melted me into a big puddle of lust. I LOVED Jax, he was so messed up from his previous relationships that I just wanted to cuddle him and smother him with kisses. Lexi was a really strong character, a strong woman. And I loved that, but at the same time it took her so long to just love Jax, and decide to be with him. I just wanted to yell at her, "LOOK AT HIS CUTE, SAD, HOT FACE AND LOVE HIM GODDAMN IT" But I did like her, she was really sweet, even when she wasn't ready for a relatioship with Jax, she always did little things to take care of him. Like making sure he had food after working all day, offering to get his clothes dry cleaned, and giving his tired muscles a massage (Although lets be honest, that definitely wasn't a hardship for her lol) I found all that really sweet. I loved the secondary characters too, the banter between Rubi and Wes was hilarious, and I hope they either end up together or each get their own books and they just become best friend lmao.I highly recommend this book, I can't tell you how much I loved it. And if you like tattooed bad boys, and sweet strong woman then you will love this book and I suggest getting it right away!To the author, please write me more books!!

Mystery Man (Dream Man, #1)

Mystery Man (Dream Man, #1) - Kristen Ashley Reread in paperbackI firmly believe there is no such thing as a bad Kristen Ashley book. Reading her words in print and having her books to put on my shelves makes me feel all bright and happy :D

The Look of Love (The Sullivans, #1)

The Look of Love - Bella Andre

*3.5 Stars*

Unscrupulous (The Manhattanites #2)

Unscrupulous (The Manhattanites #2) - Avery Aster A copy of this book was provided to me from NetGalley for an honest reviewI am loving this series!
Undressed - Avery Aster I really enjoyed this book. It was off the charts hot! I read a lot of romance books, and there were sex scenes in here that surprised even me. I was like,
Faithful (Wanted, #3) - Kelly Elliott I've been trying to think of how I should start this review. And honestly the line that keeps popping into my head is - "That wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be." Now let me explain that sentance lol. I love this series so I didn't think the book would be bad. What I thought would be bad is my condition after I finished reading Faithful. Kelly Elliott writes emotional books, and you get so sucked into the story that you start feeling those emotions with the characters. After I finished reading Saved, I was pretty much an emotional mess, and I expected to be like that while reading Faithful too. I pretty much prepared myself to be like this once I finished it,

Skin Deep (Skin Deep, #1)

Skin Deep (Skin Deep, #1) - J.M. Stone 3.5 stars, Luke was off the charts hot XD The rest though was just ok.

Tragic: Rook and Ronin, #1

Tragic - J.A. Huss I really enjoyed this book, I'm going straight to the next in the series so that I don't have to leave the characters just yet. I really like Rook, and most of the time I like Ronin too lol we've only got into his head a little in this one so I'm hoping for more of his POV in the next one.

Epiphany

Epiphany - Christina Jean Michaels The author sent me an e-copy of this for an honest review :) First to the author I'd like to say, You rock!

Oracle's Moon (Elder Races Series #4)

Oracle's Moon - Thea Harrison I just saw that the next full length book in the series is about Pia and Dragos. Umm yay!!!! They are still my favourite couple so I'm looking forward to that. Grace and Khalil come in a close second XD A very close second. This book was way better then Rune's. I loved Grace and Khalil so much! And Chloe and Max we super cute. They are going to make a great little, slightly strange, family.
The Barbarian Prince (Dragon Lords #1) - Michelle M. Pillow A very surprising book. I enjoyed it very much. Most alien romance books, at least the ones I've read, end up following the same plot. Alien dude kidnaps/saves and kidnaps/buys from somebody, a girl. And books usually focus a lot on the sex part of the relationship. This was different and refreshing. Even though the couple is married, the author comes up with a believable reason for the couple to get to know each other better before bringing sex into the relationship. I liked that a lot. Especially since there was lots of build up scenes and the author didn't disappoint when she finally delivered. I liked that Rigan wasn't annoying like some heroines in alien books. For the most part I think she held herself together pretty well. And I thought Ualan was super hot! I'm looking forward to reading about the rest of the prince brothers.

Seize Me (Breakneck, #1)

Seize Me (Breakneck, #1) - Crystal Spears Five amazing stars! I absolutely loved this book!! I highly recommend it to everyone :)
