Maybe Someday Audio Book Review...

Featuring songs from Griffin Peterson! 

Sydney is living in an idyllic bubble - she's a dedicated student with a steady job on the side. She lives with her best friend, has a great boyfriend, and the music coming from the balcony opposite hers is fast becoming the soundtrack to her life.

But when Sydney finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her, the bubble bursts. The mysterious and attractive man behind the music, Ridge, gives Sydney hope that she can move on and they begin to write songs together. But moving on is harder than she expects, Sydney can only hope…. Maybe someday…
Colleen Hoover draws you in to this passionate tale of music, love and betrayal…

Praise for Colleen Hoover:
'Brilliant and entertaining' - Jamie McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Disaster

'This book will consume you - rip out your heart and piece it back together. I absolutely loved it!' - Paige Toon, author of One Perfect Summer

'Unique, unlike anything out there... Go out and read it already!' - Tamara Webber, New York Times bestselling author of Easy



Sydney and Ridge…swoon!

So I fell in love with this book the first time I read it.  Since I couldn’t find my copy in storage I decided to grab it on audio book and give it a go that way.  Can I just say that I tend to catch more listening to a book than actually reading a book.  Is that just me?  Probably because I’m weird but it’s cool.

Anyways, Sydney finds out that her boyfriend is cheating on her with her roommate.  When she ends up homeless she is herded into Ridge’s apartment and becomes the new roommate.  All she asks is that he not make her like her roommate.  Ridge may be deaf but he is an amazing song writer.  When he sees her sitting on the curb in the rain he forces her to come in.  Together they make magical music but does it come to be something so much more?  Can Ridge finally follow his heart?  Can Sydney get over the cheating ex-boyfriend and roommate?  Can these two figure out what they want and go for it?

I absolutely love this book.  It is among my favorites by Colleen Hoover.  I love watching the characters grow and evolve together.  I love the soundtrack by Griffin.  Now as this was the audio book I have to say I enjoyed the narrators.  I do wish they would have sung the lyrics or had a Griffin voice over for those parts.  That would make it like ten times better.  I picked up on a few things that I had missed on previous read throughs.  I could read this book over and over again forever.  Great audio book.  Great book.

Hard Ball Review...

Perfect ass.

Perfect arms.

Perfect swagger.

They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.

He’s the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.

When he runs the bases, every woman’s eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.

I’m no queen. I’m a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season.

Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.

My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.

But there’s not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.

Until the night I do. And everything changes.



Vivian is a librarian at a school that has a lot of underprivileged kids.  After a break up she is back living with her step father who is struggling health wise.  But when the kids get to go on a field trip to meet local baseball stars she goes as a chaperone.  What she doesn’t expect is for the player she is crushing on to be an absolute jerk.  She also expects to never see him again.  Dash is a well-known ball player who is almost never caught on camera.  He has a strict regime and it is to the point of OCD.  He feels that he can’t win a game without his special items.  So when his special glove goes missing after the field trip he is forced to see Vivian again.  With a rocky start like this things can only get better right?  Can Vivian get over her past and let somebody be her future?  Can Dash find new rituals that get him through the games?  Can these two make each other better in the long run?

I loved the dynamic between the two characters.  I mean Dash is the quintessential jerky jock when we first meet him, or is he just playing a part.  I loved watching these two characters grow.  It was well written and well thought out.  I truly enjoyed watching this story unfold and for a while I kind of disliked Dash but he seemed to catch onto what she needed after a little while.  If you are into sports related books then this one should be on your list.  I look forward to reading more by this author.

Dirty Sexy Saint Review...

New York Times bestselling authors Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde bring you a dirty, sexy, smoking hot SERIES featuring three bad boy brothers bonded by shocking secrets and their damaged past. Sinful, addicting, and unapologetically alpha, these men are every woman’s erotic daydream ... And your ultimate dirty fantasy. 

Are you ready to get Dirty Sexy with a Saint? 

Clay Kincaid knows he's more a sinner than a saint. Especially when it comes to women. With a rough and damaged past that has left him jaded, he doesn't do committed relationships. But he does like sex—the hotter and harder, the better. He likes it fast and filthy, which is why he refuses to even touch someone as sweet and guileless as Samantha Jamieson. Until he discovers that she likes it just as down and dirty as he does. Let the sinning begin . . . 


All books in the DIRTY SEXY Series are full-length novels with no cliffhangers!



In order to get out of marrying somebody just to keep the family company in the family Samantha walks out and is promptly cut off by her father.  When she wanders into Clay’s bar with no money and nowhere to stay he feels obligated to protect her and let her stay at his place.  So with a job and a place to stay she now needs to figure out what she wants and what she plans to do in the long run.  But as these two get to know each other do their feelings start to change?  What would they give up for each other in order to protect one another?  Do all of the truths eventually come out?

This was a book with a different kind of plot.  I can honestly say I have never read a book with this plot line.  I look forward to learning about the other two brothers in this series.  All of the characters were extremely well written and full of life.  Everything flowed really good as well but I felt like parts of it were rushed while others moved a bit slowly.  I didn’t feel like there was a very happy medium with the pace.  Everything else was really well written and I do look forward to reading more about these characters.  I really loved watching Samantha grow as a person throughout this book the most though.

The Mother Road Review...

Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.

It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad.. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago. 

What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV.



Ah The Mother Road…if you need a good laugh then look no further.

So this was a re-read (technically a re-listen) and I loved every second of the strange things that come out of these characters mouths or their actions.  It revolves around a family who wants to take one last trip cross country in honor of their mother before Paul (the brother) gets married.  So they pick ____ up in California to start the trip in Taisy (their RV).  Not long after the start of the trip the man who ripped her heart out is picked up along the side of the road to join them on the return trip.  There are a lot of great moments in this book and a ton of unique and interesting facts that nobody really wants to know about disturbing things.  Hilarious analogies, pranks and oh so much more.  But can Porter win the girl he left behind four years ago back?  Can she forgive him when she learns the truth?  Will they both get their dreams in the end?

While this book and the characters are downright hilarious, the end is immensely sweet and touching.  So throughout the book you are laughing yourself to tears but then the last couple chapters you are actually in tears because it is so sweet and touching.  But somehow it works and I don’t understand how it does.  I still have yet to look into more books by the author but I look forward to the next one I get the chance to read because she is amazing at what she does.  This is entire book is worth reading over and over again and I am so glad that I added it to my Audible collection.  The narrators did an amazing job at portraying these characters. 

I still think the best part is the President names as swear words.  It is just so unique.  I look forward to another re-read of this book in the future and one day hope to travel to some of the places they stopped at throughout the book.  Maybe I will read the book over and over while taking a trip down the Mother Road one day...who knows.

Ripples Cover Reveal...


You don’t have to read the Consequences series to enjoy this stand-alone novel, but if you know Tony Rawlings, you know that disappointing him isn’t an option. Imagine being his youngest daughter...imagine telling him the unimaginable...

 “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.”

 Sometimes ideas find you, and dreams begin as nightmares. Sometimes the truth that has been kept hidden is the key to opening a door you never knew existed.

“You might not know me. I’m the baby of the Rawlings family, the princess, the daughter who came along later. I’m not like my older siblings, successful at everything they touch. My mother and father have provided me with every luxury as well as their unyielding love and support, but I’m not spoiled. I’m also not content. By example, my parents have shown me how love should be. I don’t know their past, and that doesn’t matter. I know what I’ve seen—two people devoted to one another.

I don’t believe that I’ll ever find that kind of love, the kind that forgives and accepts all. And as my life falls to pieces and I travel to visit my family to face their disappointment, I’m not even looking for it.

I’m looking for an escape...from my life as a Rawlings...from the pressure to achieve and not let others down. I dream of the time I can live for my own desires without the expectations that come with my name.

I don’t find what I’m finds me. Or should I say...he finds me.

This time is different. I have a family who will search for me and find the answers. Little do we know—any of us—that my father set my journey into motion long before I was born.”

"Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects." ~Dalai Lama

Ripples (Unabridged Version) is Natalie’s story, the youngest of Tony and Claire’s children—their baby. This story first appeared in shorter form in Glamour: Contemporary Fairytale Retellings. Due to the length restriction of each novella in that anthology, many scenes in Ripples were shortened or omitted for that anthology. This unabridged edition is the entire story—double in length and—a full-length novel.

Amber's Muse Review...

Sometimes it’s the person you least expect who can satisfy all your desires.

By day Amber’s a librarian, and by night she hides away writing erotic romance novels. She has just one problem—not enough sexual experience to pull from. A recent steamy dream leaves Amber wondering if her neighbor Jax might be just the guy who can help her. He seems almost perfect to use as a sexual guinea pig, especially since she doesn’t have to worry about falling in love with him.

Jax has lived next door to Amber for a year and has tried everything he can think of to get her to notice him, but it hasn’t worked. Until recently. When Amber approaches him asking for his help, he’s ready to jump on board. When he learns exactly what kind of help she needs, he’s definitely willing.

Becoming involved with someone like Jax simply isn’t an option for Amber. He barely works, can’t manage his money, and has no ambition in life. So why does he suddenly seem so right for her?

Content Warning: explicit sex



I love Lacey’s writing but I was expecting more. 

Amber is a librarian and almost every night her neighbor Jax comes in to use the internet last minute.  Amber is also a writer and while she wants to write a more erotic book she has no experience and doesn’t think she can make it realistic.  That is how the deal is struck between these two.  But will their deal become something more or will Amber find out the truth Jax is hiding from her?

I enjoyed the book because I was a librarian/writer for six years.  Like I said before I was expecting more.  I was just getting into the story when it ended.  The characters were interesting but I feel like they could have been developed a little more with a longer story.  The plot was good too.  I think my big problem is that any book that Lacey writes in never long enough for me.  I always want more and this one left me with the same feeling!  It could have developed into something so much more than it is!

Royally Screwed Review...

Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka His Royal Hotness, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant; hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you. 

Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn't bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.

Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants. 

Dating a prince isn't what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.

There's a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they've traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces, and haven't chopped anyone's head off lately, the royals are far from accepting of this commoner. 

But to Olivia, Nicholas is worth it.

Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.



In this book Olivia has been running the restaurant her family owned and not having much of a life.  After her mother died she took on all the responsibility and her father struggled to keep it together.  One night she meets Prince Nicholas.  Prince Nicholas was sent to the states by his grandmother for some affair or other and on one of his first nights there he goes to a diner for pie completely drunk.  Can Olivia see past the drunken and angry Prince’s facade?  Can they see the relationship for what it truly is, a summer fling before he goes back to get married to a woman of his grandmother’s choosing?  Will Nicholas make a choice for himself or do as he is told by the Queen, his Grandmother?  Will Olivia’s father finally pull it together and get their family out of the astronomical debt he has accrued?

This was another great book by Emma Chase.  I loved every second of the book and it left me guessing at every corner.  It has been a while since I read a book that kept me guessing and it has left me wanting to know more about this group of people.  I absolutely loved these characters and loved to hate the Queen.  The plot was well thought out and it is phenomenally written.  I look forward to continuing the series.

I want to know how well the younger Prince deals with his PTSD and becoming King!  I want to know what happens to Olivia and Nicholas when all is said and done.  What happens to Olivia’s family when she becomes Princess?  So many questions, so I will most definitely be looking for the rest of these books and soon!  I look forward to reading more by this author because I have been a fan since the first book I read years ago for a tour!  Thank you for creating such amazing books!

Wood Release...

Lauren Hawkeye and Cathryn Fox have a surprise for you ... WOOD is available today! Find out more about it below and pick up your copy now!

About WOOD

I was on an archeological dig in the Cape Breton Highlands, until betrayal sent me running. A severe lightning storm crashed over me, and I found myself swallowed by the dark, angry Bras D’or Lake, only to surface in a different place, a different…time?

Thrust into an unknown world—a threat at every turn—my chances of making it out alive were slim, until an impressive, big beast of a man came to my rescue. The tense, axe-wielding lumberjack named Wood—a danger to me in so many ways—tossed me over his shoulder and took me to his remote cabin. His lodging was hidden amongst the trees, his existence a quiet one—until I arrived.

I needed to get back to my time. He needed me gone. I confused him. He confused me. We were different people with different secrets, but we had one thing in common, an attraction that spanned time and had me wondering if I could ever trust another man, and if he could ever love another woman?

Get your hands on WOOD now!

About Lauren Hawkeye

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!

About Cathryn Fox

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cathryn Fox is a wife, mom, sister, daughter, and friend. She loves dogs, sunny weather, anything chocolate (she never says no to a brownie) pizza and red wine. Cathryn has two teenagers who keep her busy and a husband who is convinced he can turn her into a mixed martial arts fan. When not writing, Cathryn can be found laughing over lunch with friends, hanging out with her kids, or watching a big action flick with her husband.

Title: Hide and Seek

Author: Desiree Holt

Genre: Contemporary Romance


About Hide and Seek:

When Graham Cole disappears no one has a clue as to how or why. His boat, Sail Away, was found drifting five miles out with no one on board or a sign that anyone had been there. The local police as well as the county sheriff are investigating but so far they have come up empty.

His disappearance, however, comes right on the heels of the death of his vice president for corporate finance. Everyone’s radar is vibrating.

Despite their fractured relationship, his daughter, Devon puts her life in Tampa on temporary hold and heads to Arrowhead Bay. Then, on her way to town to meet with Police Chief Sheridan March, she is run off the road, her windows smashed, and she is threatened. Only the unexpected arrival of Vigilance agent Logan Malik prevents anything further.

With her life in possible danger until this riddle is solved, Vigilance assigns Logan to be her bodyguard. Devon has barely caught her breath when executives from Cole International show up and question her. Both she and Logan feel there is more to their questions than just worry about the effect on Cole International. Then the feds show up to tell her they are investigating several of her father’s companies. They suspect him of laundering money for drug cartels.

Being together twenty-four seven ignites the sparks sizzling between Logan and Devon, and although it goes against his personal rules, they become intimate with each other and discover growing feelings. As they all move closer to the reason for Graham’s disappearance, they are shocked to discover that yes, Graham Cole is alive and hiding from the people he owes and two, he has been laundering drug money through some of the Cole International companies with the assistance of one of his top executives. Although both have been skimming, Graham has disappeared with a giant chunk of money and the exec is hung out to dry. Both entities are determined to find him.

When Devon is snatched at the bank practically from under Logan’s nose he is beside himself. The kidnappers will exchange her for either her father’s whereabouts or his records and money.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Logan could barely keep up with Devyn as she raced into the garage and got into his truck. He had a feeling that if he hadn’t punched the button to open the garage door she’d have insisted he just drive through it.

“Hurry,” she urged, hands clasped tightly in her lap.

Logan burned rubber backing out of the garage and heading down the driveway. Despite Devyn’s urging he took care to look both ways and scope out the surrounding area as he reached the road. And a damn good thing, he thought as he spotted a black SUV almost hidden in the trees across the road. When it pulled out behind them he grabbed his gun from his waist and pushed Devyn’s head down.

“Stay like that and don’t move under any circumstance.”

“What’s happening? What—”

“Trouble. Just do me a favor and hang tight. Please.”

He had to give her credit. She shut up and bent way down, just as he’d told her to do, even though he could feel the fear and anger vibrating from her. They hadn’t gone fifty yards before something cracked against the rear of the truck cab, and he knew damn well it was a bullet. Last year he’d protected a very high profile oilman whose life had been threatened. He’d taken his truck to Tactical Armoring Corporation in San Antonio and had it fixed up inside and out. Now he had bulletproof tires, and a vehicle reinforced against everything up to and including armor-piercing rifles.

He pressed harder on the accelerator, keeping one eye on the road and the other on the side view mirror. If they could make it to the end of the road and take the turn to the marina, he figured they’d be okay because then they’d be in traffic. He hoped these idiots weren’t stupid enough to engage in a firefight with a bunch of other people around.

A heavy thud sounded against the back of the cab and Logan knew from the sound it was an armor-piercing bullet. Whoever these guys were, they came well equipped.

He watched the speedometer creep up to eighty, then ninety, then to a hundred. He was sure the men behind them wanted to pull up alongside and try for the windows but he kept ahead of him with his powerful engine. They were almost to the end of Seacliff Road.

“Hang on. Brace yourself.”

He wrenched the wheel around, skidding into the turn and then they were on the busy road to the marina. Traffic forced him to slow down and when he looked in his mirror he saw the other vehicle had turned off the other way. Smart. They didn’t want people around for what they had to do. He had to tell Avery so they could revisit the security needs. A high-end system might not be enough.

He had to give Devyn a lot of credit. When the SUV pulled out behind them she hadn’t freaked, or panicked or done anything he might have expected. She just did what he told her and left him to take care of business. He was afraid that wouldn’t work at the marina.

For 18 years and over. 

This novel contains a M/F/M relationship.

Confident she has managed to dodge the attraction she has for Chance, she lets down her guard, only to be taken by surprise by Chance’s ploy to win her over and convince her that they’re perfect for one another. Enter Dane, Chance’s best friend. Jade quickly realises all the fight in her was useless, especially when things are left to Chance.



Ah…the Chance, Jade, Dane story!

So this was a reread so that I could read Love of Liberty and get to know the characters again.  I absolutely loved getting to know these characters again.  I am pretty sure I’ve read this book at least once a year for the last several years, I don’t remember when it came out but since then.  Every time I read it there is something new that I catch.  It cracks me up every single time as well. 

These characters are well formulated and well written.  I feel a connection with all of them but especially Jade.  I feel a kindred connection to Jade because I feel like we could be the same person in the long run.  I fell in love with these characters the first time I read it and fall deeper in love with each re-read.  I truly look forward to reading Love of Liberty as soon as I get the chance!

The Curse of the Bruel Coven Review...

When secrets from the past collide with the present, the consequences may be deadly.

Vivienne Davenport is an ordinary teenager—at least, she thinks she is. Then the untimely death of her mother reveals a family secret. She's adopted . . . and her real mom is a witch.

I have no words for this book and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Vivienne’s life changes drastically in the span of just a few short hours.  After her mother Grace’s death she is in need of a baby picture for the yearbook.  While searching she finds a picture that proves she’s adopted.  So she goes to find her mother only to find out she is a curse witch.  When her real mother Claire is kidnapped she decides to stick around and help find her.  With the help of the family she never knew existed it may be possible.  Can she learn how to wield her powers fast enough?  Can they weed out the deceitful coven in time?  Who is her father?  What do her dreams mean?  Can they break the curse?
This book flowed amazingly.  I felt like I was a part of the book.  I loved the dynamic aspect of the characters.  They each have their own skill or want in life.  The plot was intense, well written and unique.  The author has an amazing writing style as well.  I could live in this world without a second thought.  I got absolutely sucked in and couldn’t stop reading.
I am extremely grateful that I was given the chance to not only read this book but also to create some fun items for the author to giveaway.  I have no words for how much I absolutely adored this book.  Again I couldn’t put it down and I look forward to reading more about these characters!
