Synopsis (From Goodreads)

Seventeen-year-old Mercedes Ayres has an open-door policy when it comes to her bedroom, but only if the guy fulfills a specific criteria: he has to be a virgin. Mercedes lets the boys get their awkward, fumbling first times over with, and all she asks in return is that they give their girlfriends the perfect first time- the kind Mercedes never had herself.

Keeping what goes on in her bedroom a secret has been easy- so far. Her absentee mother isn’t home nearly enough to know about Mercedes’ extracurricular activities, and her uber-religious best friend, Angela, won’t even say the word “sex” until she gets married. But Mercedes doesn’t bank on Angela’s boyfriend finding out about her services and wanting a turn- or on Zach, who likes her for who she is instead of what she can do in bed.

When Mercedes’ perfect system falls apart, she has to find a way to salvage her reputation and figure out where her heart really belongs in the process. Funny, smart, and true-to-life, FIRSTS is a one-of-a-kind young adult novel about growing up. Continue reading [Book Review] First by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn

Contemporary Erotic Romance publish date August 6th, 2015

Synopsis (From Goodreads)

Living in LA and dating celebrities wasn’t what it was cracked up to be. I found out the hard way many had a lifestyle I wanted no part of.

Then David Taylor forced his way into my life. A sledge hammer breaking down my well crafted walls.

He was gorgeous and sexy and intimidating. I was drawn to him in a way I had never been to anyone or anything. And I knew I couldn’t have him, I was too damaged, too flawed to really connect.

David saw what I was from the beginning. A broken scared girl locked away inside an aloof woman. And he was determined to free me. To make me his. Continue reading [Book Review] Playing for Keeps by J.C. Grant

[Book Review] Contrive: To Create or Bring About by Jay Hope

Two for the price of one” *laugh a little* Hi everyone. Two reviews in one day? What’s up with that? I just have to put this out there too and the fact that I couldn’t upload last week due to internet breaking down *growls softly because of it*

This is a book that I just couldn’t help myself and bought as soon as I found the author on Instagram. The premise was very good and I needed something military so I went for it after little thought about the price… of course… I don’t always do that.

What finally drove me to it was that Jay Hope posted a picture of the tittle for the 5th installment of this series and I just have to read that when it’s done because I just LOVE bad guys points of view.

As soon as I said that I wanted to read it I just knew I have to get my hands on the complete series, of course. So far just one book but my fingers are itching, so I stay the hell away from Amazon… for now…

[Book Review] Under the Cowboy’s Control by Lynda Chance

For almost 6 days I kept looking and looking at my book TBR (to be read) list and I couldn’t pick a book to read. Even though I have a lot of them that I want to read for reviews, I couldn’t pick one, I was just not in the mood. So instead I went to my phone and look at the audiobooks I had there for a while now and decided to listen to this one.

Finished this book at 1:07 am on Friday 25th of September 2015… And I can not explain to you how good I felt… So for the first time in this blog I will make a review of an audiobook. This audiobook.

Synopsis (From Goodreads)

Selena Taylor is an American citizen determined to find her grandparents after she loses her family to the violence of the drug cartel in Mexico. Crossing the border into Texas turns out to be the easy part.

Virtually penniless and enticingly innocent, she soon finds herself at the mercy of Travis Blake. Travis is a hard-working, self-made rancher that has never known love or softness of any kind. His only use for women is sexual, and Selena is caught on his ranch with no way out.

While Selena plots her escape from his control, Travis ruthlessly and methodically tightens his possession and makes it impossible for her to leave.

The struggle that follows is a clash of wills that pits purity against passion, virtue against vice and love against lust. Continue reading [Book Review] Under the Cowboy’s Control by Lynda Chance

[Book Review] Here She Rules by Kat Hollinghead

*Scratch her chin for a few seconds, pondering how to start this review*

Honestly… I didn’t remember this book until I saw it on my Amazon Wish List. It took me a few days to finally purchase the Kindle format of it and I did it because I said to myself “It has 410 pages according to Amazon, it has to be worth it no matter what“… You’ll see… I’m not afraid to admit that sometimes I can be a little special to spend my money, not saying I’m cheap or something but I think too much when it comes to spending money. This book, was worth it, not a doubt in my mind about it.
