Publication:  October 2014 

Goodreads Synopsis:

He’s always saved her. Now she’s going to return the favor…

Gray Duffy never thought he’d end up as the co-lead guitarist of Oblivion, one of the hottest rock bands in the country. Even better? He’s sharing the experience with his best friend, Jazz. Since the day she’d showed up as his family’s new foster kid, Gray has protected her. Loved her. And not just platonically either. After all these years of wanting her in his bed, he still doesn’t know what it would be like to have her mouth on his.

Except for that one time. The time he’d shared her with Nick. The best worst night of his life.

Now they’re living their dream. They’re making music together and spending every waking moment trapped in tight quarters. With success at their fingertips, the time is right for him to finally make his move toward the woman he needs.

He just never figured he would lose control. Or that she would find out.

They’ve loved each other through everything. But what if this time love just isn’t enough?

Thoughts: 

Rocked was so good!

Happy Reading!

Tell me, what are you waiting on?

Shame On You by Tara Sivec 

War veteran Kennedy O’Brien is in the business of sticking it to the man—or at least any man who tries to cross a woman. After she returned home from Afghanistan and caught her husband in bed with the nanny, Kennedy lost her faith in men and started Fool Me Once Investigations with her two best friends. After all, there’s no better bounty hunter than a woman scorned.

When Kennedy takes a case to slap cuffs on a bail jumper turned dog-napper, she figures it’ll be an easy paycheck. But trouble has a way of finding Kennedy. Enter the last man on the planet she’d willingly choose as a partner: her cheating ex-husband’s best friend, Griffin Crawford.

As gorgeous as he is unwelcome, Griffin has always had a thing for Kennedy, and after keeping quiet about her ex’s cheating, he’ll do anything to earn back her trust. Whether or not she wants to admit it, Kennedy will need help as the case of the Chihuahua thief spirals out of control. Griffin may be just her man—in more ways than one

Teaser Excerpt:

 “Kennedy!” he whisper-yells to me as he covers the mouthpiece with his hand. “This guy says he’ll pay fifteen hundred dollars to bust your back door. I don’t know why he’d pay that much to break a door, but I’m going to tell him you’re game. We can always get it fixed later. I didn’t realize prostitutes made so much money for weird stuff. I thought they gave happy endings. I’m in the wrong business. I should be a pimp.”

I groan loudly at my dad as he goes back to his phone call. 

 

 

 

 

Haha I loved this teaser, what did you think?

For my fellow Canadians, hope you had a wonderful Gobble Gobble Day

REVIEW: Killing Honor (Lucky Thirteen #1)

Navy SEAL Brody Battles’ last mission ended with him shot twice. He’s made enemies he’d like to forget ever existed all over the world. He’s more than ready to go home to the family he left behind, but when he returns, he faces sleepless nights, a possible security breach and the fear that his family has moved on without him.

Marrying her childhood sweetheart sounds like a fairy tale dream come true, but not for Devyn. Thanks to his job, her husband has been off on a secret mission for so long, he’s never even seen his daughters in person. But now he’s back, and the fairy tale life is in sight, but Devyn’s not sure the man that returned is the same man who left.

Stitching their broken family back together proves difficult when nightmares and secrets build a wall between them. And while they’re adjusting to being a family again, an enemy waits in the shadows, salivating for the sweet taste of revenge.

Thoughts:
I liked it, in the sense that I like Addison and would love to read her story because she seems to have some pretty badass secrets. I don’t know of anyone who gets shot in the leg, being all, I think I got shot, that sucks. She’s too tough to be ordinary, I’m working on some theories.

I must also say that discerning who infiltrated their security was way too easy, and made me lose my interest– Once I figured out who Jane was, there really was no point reading the meat of the book, just skip to the last few chapters, you’re not missing anything — which is bad because you should want to read the entire book without having figured it all out within the first 100 pages.

Devyn on the other hand is not the type of female lead I want to read about. Yes, there is nothing wrong with being a housewife but a housewife with no other aspiration other than being a housewife is not my idea of a good read.
I originally thought her shunning the Navy SEALs wives club was a show of strength twisted as it may sound, but even not integrating yourself with them, you are still one of them and I would hate to be the one who is picked as a target because I’m so impressionable. I mean, ya you were stupid but who are you going to trust now? That sucks.

My two issues with Devyn.
– You married a military man, a SEAL for crying out loud, you know his job is going to be dangerous, and for some reason once you experience up close and personal (not saying shock and fear and everything else is warranted) but you can’t seriously expect him to give up his job right? Give up being a military man, and yes I could understand a wife asking a husband to do that because, hey danger came a knocking on my door because of what you do, but that wasn’t the impression I got from Devyn it was a more, I want you home by my side all the time because I’m scared to be without you.

WAIT! this goes into issue 2
– I mentioned earlier Devyn as a housewife and lack of aspiration, right, well this is proof: “A stupid cow of a housewife who has no discernible skill set for the real world.” That’s not even the worst part, the worst part is this: “Nothing she was saying was wrong. I had always been a housewife. I’d always been scared to lose Brody, not just because I loved him, but also because I had not future without him.” See what I mean? never mind the fact that she actually pulled the trigger, which I’m chalking up to reflex and not intention. Devyn just does not scream, strong independent woman to me. And I like reading about strong independent yet vulnerable women.

So although it was good, it wasn’t great. I’d probably only read Addison’s story and stop there unless someone else pops up in that story that piques me interest.

Last Line: “I’m not a sir,” he replied. “I work for a living.” He wrapped his arms back around me, this time so I faced the girls on the floor. He laid his chin on my shoulder and together we watched the girls play until they were bored of the blocks and went in search of more trouble to get into.

WWW Wednesday #20

WWW WednesdayHey guys! Look what I found! A weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should be Reading blog here on WordPress.

Lots of new author reads in the past few weeks and I’m sure there are more to come.


• What are you currently reading?

It’s like all those books you’ve read before, girl wants life-long guy friend, doesn’t know she exists, enlists outside parties help and falls for him without realizing. Somehow the same old story line never gets old.

 

• What did you recently finish reading? 

Really long read, but worth it. Still not sure how I really feel about the authors writing style. Review to come.

 

 

 

• What do you think you’ll read next?

I have no idea.

 

Open to Suggestions

Happy Reading!

Teaser Tuesday #20

FOREPLAY

Before she goes after the life she’s always wanted, she’s about to find the one she needs.

Pepper has been hopelessly in love with her best friend’s brother, Hunter, for like ever. He’s the key to everything she’s always craved: security, stability, family. But she needs Hunter to notice her as more than just a friend. Even though she’s kissed exactly one guy, she has just the plan to go from novice to rock star in the bedroom—take a few pointers from someone who knows what he’s doing.

Her college roommates have the perfect teacher in mind. But bartender Reece is nothing like the player Pepper expects. Yes, he’s beyond gorgeous, but he’s also dangerous, deep—with a troubled past. Soon what started as lessons in attraction are turning both their worlds around, and showing just what can happen when you go past foreplay and get to what’s real…

Teaser Excerpt:

 “With guys it’s all about opportunity So give him an opportunity”

“Shaking my head, I resisted telling her that if a guy really likes a girl he creates an opportunity.” 

 

Couldn’t have said it better myself. That last line actually reminds me of He Just Not That Into You, which is on my extensive list of favorite movies. 

Hope you have a wonderful book filled week!
