REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: His Saving Grace by Sharon Cullen

His Saving Grace
Secrets & Seduction # 4
By: Sharon Cullen
Releasing December 23rd, 2014


Perfect for fans of Mary Balogh, Sharon Cullen’s captivating novel tells the deeply emotional tale of two devoted lovers facing the ravages of war.

For months now, Lady Grace Ashworth has mourned the death of her beloved husband—until the day a very-much-alive Michael arrives at her front door. It’s nothing less than a miracle. However, Grace soon realizes that this Michael isn’t the same man who left for the Crimean War. She’s stunned to learn that he has suffered a devastating head injury. Putting all her own desires aside, Grace resolves to devote herself to Michael’s recovery and to love him no matter what troubles may come.

Convinced that his wife is wasting her time on a broken man, Michael attempts to shield Grace from a life of inconvenience by driving her away. But Grace will have none of that. Despite every obstacle Michael throws in her path, she stubbornly soldiers on, fighting not only for their marriage but for the love they once shared. In the end, will her determination alone be enough to save Michael from the darkness that threatens to consume him?

Firstly I would like to thank Tasty Books Tours, NetGalley, Random House Loveswept for providing us with a copy of this book so that we can bring you this review.

Ok, Im going to start this review by saying TISSUE WARNING!!! So none of you can say I didn't give fair warning about the content beforehand. Because the one thing I know for sure about this story is that even though it takes place a long time ago, the situation could fit in todays way of life just as easily. The things that Michael deals with are very similar to things many of our injured returning soldiers deal with. The not only feelings of no longer being good enough for those he/she loves but that they are a burden on them. Sadly not always do they have people observant enough to see how close to the edge they are, like Michael had with Grace. Grace's strength, love and loyalty helped bring him back from a dark place more then once. Not only when he was first dealing with his injuries, but when he was home and feeling sorry for himself. There was one scene that showed how badly Michael had PTSD and how little things have changed over the years. Sharon does such a great job of writing these characters, of what they go through and make us feel like the story is taking place in todays society as easily as transporting us in time to the past. Though much of this review has been based on Michael, since he is my personal favorite of the story, I cannot forget about Grace, her emotional strength, her faith in her love helping Michael and her ability to put her own hurts behind her to help him are fantastic.

This is definitely a book to read in this coming year. Which is why I give it 5 kisses.

Happy Reading... Adri

REVIEW: Harkham's Choice by Chanse Lowell


Adam Latham knows one thing, and one thing only—he simply has to have Marissa Cole as his own. Not as his school mate, or his girlfriend who lives in his family’s house with him. Her. He needs her to be his wife, and he’ll find a way to make that happen, whether or not his medical condition as Harkham’s unresolved case has improved.

His overwhelming need for Mari’s touch continues unabated. Even as her life grows more complicated—dealing with her father’s issues in another state—Adam becomes more determined that they’ll have a life together after they graduate high school in a few short months.

What will he do when he finds out exactly what past abuse Mari’s suffered? How will he handle it when she falls apart in front of his very eyes? He can only hope to contain the numbers that try to consume him and the violet anxiety attacks that follow, on his own.

How will he deal with his unsupportive family members that rally against his relationship with this damaged girl? Is Dr. Harkham the answer to his questions?

Only Adam knows what it means to live with an undefined disability. Until he finds the key that unlocks the secrets to his past mysteries, will he be able to move on and live a full and happy life with his Mari.

Chanse had delivered another amazing story again! 

Adam and Mary continue their whatever they have going. There is so much more back story in this boom than the first. I felt like I learned all lot more about each individual character in this book. It had me on my toes fron the first page. 

Mary's mom who I can't stand has a heart... I was surprised by this revolution because of how she had previously acted. Mary's dad.. I could never image having to live in a small rink a dink town and having my father known for what her father is known for. It's just one of those things where the pieces come together through out the story. 

Dustin, I hated this man in the first book. He seemed so strict and somewhat uncaring and  blind and to what was happening with Adam through his sister. He starts warming up to Mari at the end of book and it continues here. All in all I am starting to like him. 
Samara... I CANNOT stand this girl and her manipulative ways. If I had my choice I would of locked her up in a nut ward in the first book. But I digress

All in all Harkhams Choice answered a lot of the what's and whos I had at the ending of Harkhams Case. Chanse has given us a very well written book. While reading her book it was like her characters came off of the page at me. I lived this book through Mari's eyewhile  reading it. 

I cannit wait to read the third and final installment of the Harkhams series. My hat is off to you you Chanse. 

REVIEW: Harkham's Case by Chanse Lowell


Adam Latham looks like any other charming, good-looking high school senior, but underneath, there’s a lot more to him than anyone could ever guess. He has an uncontrollable need for constant touch to ground him, to keep the numbers from invading his brain when anxiety gets the better of him.

When Adam resolves to finally complete high school and get his diploma, the social demands amongst his younger peers prove to be much more challenging than he’d imagined.

Lucky for him, his first class holds Marissa Cole, and she’s willing to let him hold her hand so he can keep control. Adam’s family sees him as a danger to himself if not strictly regulated, but to Mari, he’s a boy with the most pure soul—one so intriguing, she can’t resist him, and he quickly steals her heart.

How will she cope when he invades her world and turns her life upside down, unearthing her own past traumas and issues? Will Adam find a way to help her find peace and forgiveness through love, or will their own problems keep them apart?

GoodReads / Amazon


4.5 kisses. 

Mari and Adam, Adam and Mari. Where to begin with these two. This book grabbed me from beginning. This book has every aspect that I as a reader look for. You have the suspense, the unknown, the back story and the love story.

Adam and Mary are one of a kind in my eyes really. Adam who closes into himself and shouts numbers when he gets terrified and Mari who has flashbacks when she gets violently ill. 

Adam is the shy guy who keeps to himself, but when he meets Mari! Woah! That was a 360 I did not see coming. Mari the trouble soul that she is takes Adam under her wing to guide him in a sense. Lets face it, I didn't  think these two who make it very far after Mari had told Adam that she is no good for him a million times. I was pleasantly suprised as the book went on though. Let me just tell you, I want to smack Sam and Dustin both and knock them down a notch when it comes to how they try to dumb Adam down withbhis abilities. 

Chanse had me literally rooting out loud for Adam and Mari when Sam would try to back either of them into a corner. She had me questioning what would happen next and how far these two would actually make it with bith if their families against them. 

This book literally drug me in and I could not put it down. I felt as if ai live through these characters through their struggles and heartaches. These characters are very well written. I was astounded by the research Chanse has done with this book and how she has molded her characters. Harkhams Choice is the next book in my kindle queued for me to read and I am getting antsy with wanting to dive right in. Until we meet again, a great read and I will recommend this book/series to anyone.

REVIEW: A SEALs Sacrifice by Tawny Weber

A SEAL’s Sacrifice kicks off the Sexy Short Stories series from New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Tawny Weber, companion stories to her award winning Sexy SEALs series.

Never underestimate a sexy, stubborn SEAL…

On New Year’s Eve…

Proud of the life she’s created, financial analyst Gwen Kirkpatrick moves easily among the rich and powerful of San Francisco, including dating her nice-guy boss. It’s quite a change from the broken hearted woman who got dumped on New Year’s Eve three years ago when the love of her life chose his Navy career over her.

As the clock ticks down…

For Petty Officer Noah Morelli, mixing his personal life and his dream career as a Navy SEAL seemed impossible. He made a tough choice, and for the last three years he’s been happy using his career challenges to forget the sweet-but-oh-so-sexy girl he left behind. Until he hears someone else is about to propose to her. Suddenly the idea of Gwen spending her life with anyone but him is unthinkable.

Anything can happen…

Gwen refuses to let her heart be broken again, but Noah is determined to win her back. Some sizzling stolen moments in a closet are all it takes to remind Gwen how hot they were together. She may be minus her panties, but she still has her pride. Now Gwen is the one confronted with a hard choice: a dream-come-true opportunity or the love she thought she’d lost. It’s New Year’s Eve, with new choices, new chances, and maybe a new life for them both.


This was another quick book I got to read as a pleasure read today... And MUST say it was such a pleasure... And it being New Years Eve on the East Coast  and this book taking place on NYE I thought it fitting to post the review today.

Tawny has done such a fantastic job about bringing us a hot and sexy little read in such a short book. I loved how these characters learn a tough lesson of you can't stop the heart when it wants to love. It doesn't matter if you chose to not go through with it, or to ignore it. You heart will always seek who it wants. I also loved the fact that this was a second chance of love story as well.

Happy Reading... Adri

REVIEW: Nobody's Lost by Kallypso Masters


Can be read as a standalone novel. Is about two characters with very minor mentions in the earlier books. But for premium reading enjoyment, you might begin with the free book one in the saga. 

Ryder Wilson returned from serving multiple deployments but can't leave the hell of combat behind him. Frustrated and ashamed of his inability to function in the world as well as the veterans he served with, he retreated, choosing to engage only with those he trusted. When retired Master Sergeant Adam Montague sends him on a mission to protect his sister from some unknown danger, Ryder's days of hiding out may be over. Can he fulfill his mission without failing again? 

Megan Gallagher has two big-brother Marines bent on protecting her from the evils of the world, but she's tougher than they think. When her older brother sends Ryder, one of his recon Marines, to her doorstep in the wee hours one night following a break-in, she realizes he needs rescuing more than she does. A friendship forms quickly, but unexpected passions run hot and complicate her resolve never to have a romantic relationship, much less marriage. So why are her body and her heart betraying her every time he comes near? 

Can these two wounded people lower their defenses long enough to allow love to grow?

About the Author

Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees—having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me series. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the series.
Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit her “day job” the month before. Masters at Arms was her debut novel (published in August 2011), followed by Nobody’s Angel, Nobody’s Hero, and Nobody’s Perfect. A change of plans for the series will make Somebody’s Angel, the continuation of Marc and Angelina’s romance, the next in line. “These two came up in the writing of Nobody’s Perfect and threw me for a huge loop with an issue Marc and I had no idea about before. They became a major distraction from Damián and Savannah’s story, so I decided to give them their own space to reach their Happily Ever After ending at last.” The storyline and time frame for Somebody’s Angel parallels the one in Nobody’s Perfect, which is why readers saw glimpses that there were some problems for the couple. But Damián has his hands full and wasn’t privy to all that was going on.
Kally lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for almost 30 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog and cat.
Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook’s “The Rescue Me Series Open Discussion group”) and live online chats. She hopes to meet you in her future travels!

This was my pleasure read for the month and let me tell you what a real pleasure it was.

There were moments while reading through Ryder's story that I couldn't stop the tears from falling out the corner of my eyes, but as heart breaking as his feelings and history were. With Megan's help he was about to see his self worth and need to heel.

I loved that Megan was such a strong independent character. She also has some amazing sass. Though there are things that she tries to not let hurt her, her heart lives on her sleeve.

My one and only complaint is that to ME the title doesn't fit the story, cause somebody's quite lost but I also understand that it goes along with the other titles of the saga. Also on a side note, even though this is part of the Rescue Me Saga and we get a few small glimpses of the other characters it works very well as a stand alone.

I personally can't wait to see what the next book will bring. As well as what else happens with these two characters and their dive into kink.

I give this book FIVE very big kisses.

Happy Reading... Adri

Brett 'Ice' Grady spends his days trying to keep up with his teenage daughter, his nights consumed in Regulators’ MC business. He has no time for anything more than a casual hookup. Two worlds collide when the dangers of his life crash into the calm of hers. Can she go beyond her own boundaries and chip her way through to the man known to be as cold as ice? Loosely attached to Chelsea Camaron's Hellions Series and Jessie Lane's Ex Ops Series.    
Ice Playlist
Ice Playlist Ice’s playlist is filled with hard rockin’ songs that we feel represent the rugged men of the Regulators Motorcycle Club. These guys may be rough and tumble, but deep down they’re the type of men that would fight to the death for their woman. Chelsea Camaron’s Songs: Evanescence - Lost In Paradise Thirty Seconds to Mars - Hurricane - This is the lifestyle of The Regulators MC (would you kill to save a life, would you kill to prove you are right are some of the lyrics). Don Omar, Tego Calderon - Bandoleros - Tied up in a world with the Cuban Mafia. Three Days Grace - Give Me A Reason Halestorm - Better Sorry than Safe Staind - Something to Remind You Three Days Grace - Home Three Days Grace - I Hate Everything About You - When Morgan first meets Ice he's an ass. The first few times they are around each other there isn't love shared between them.   Jessie Lane’s Playlist: Otherwise - Darker Side of the Moon Hellyeah – Moth – How I see Ice’s slow burning infatuation with the innocent Morgan. Starset - My Demons Nonpoint - Breaking Skin Devour the Day – Respect - Ice isn’t the sort of man who would trust easily. You’d have to earn that sort of respect by showing him just what sort of person you are. A pushover would never be able to hold the position he holds in the Regulators MC. Demon Hunter - The Last One Alive – Ice has personal demons that follow him in the form of his dead wife. He’s a haunted man.

Chelsea Camaron
Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works. When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in. She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

REVIEW: Justified (Alfha Law #1) by Aurora Rose Reynolds

Meet Nolan & Chloe is this HOT, quick read
by Aurora Rose Rose Reynolds

Justified (Alfha Law #1) Novella
After the first sighting, he’s fascinated.

After the first smile, he’s infatuated.

By the first kiss, he’s obsessed.

Nolan sees Chloe through a window of a bakery in downtown Manhattan. At first sight,

something about her calls to a piece of him he thought was lost. Without thinking, he

 begins watching her, and when the moment presents itself, he strikes, claiming Chloe for

 himself. For a man who is used to getting what he wants Nolan wont let anyone or

 anything stand in his way.

GET UP,” I tell Chloe as I walk into the bedroom.
“For what?” she asks,
 looking at me from over the top of her
Kindle, not moving.
“You’re not going to lie around and pout all day. Now,
“I’m not pouting.” She frowns.
I shake my head, walk over to her, rip
 the Kindle out of her
hand, and toss it onto a chair across the room.
“Hey! I was reading that,” she
 complains, crossing her arms
over her chest and glaring at me.
“I don’t know what happened to my
 submissive little Angel,
but I’m telling you now—what you’re going to be doing is getting
 undressed, getting on your knees, opening that pretty mouth of yours, and
 sucking my cock until I tell you to stop. Then, if you’re good, I will eat
 your little pussy until you come,” I growl, pulling her out of bed. “When
 I’ve had my fill of your taste, you’re going to climb up on my cock and ride
 me until we both come.”

 My Review
 I loved this quick steamy read. Nolan is alpha personified. He not
 only desires Chloe, he possesses her. She is the perfect submissive 
to his very dominant alpha. 
 It has a bit of everything: a jilted ex, revenge, steamy
 sex and retribution, and of course, Nolan. 
4.5 steamy stars from me and I can't wait to see who else the Alfha
 Law Firm has to offer!
