Title: Breaking Without You
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Series: Fractured Connections #1
Release Date: April 16, 2019
From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.


I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she'd believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.

Title: Five Years Gone
Author: Marie Force
Release Date: October 9, 2018

MY RATING: ★★★★★
The most brazen terrorist attack in history. A country bent on revenge. A love affair cut short. A heart that never truly heals.

I knew on the day of the attack that our lives were changed forever. What I didn’t know then was that I’d never see John again after he deployed. One day he was living with me, sleeping next to me, making plans with me. The next day he was gone.

That was five years ago. The world has moved on from that awful day, but I’m stuck in my own personal hell, waiting for a man who may be dead for all I know. At my sister’s wedding, I meet Eric, the brother of the groom, and my heart comes alive once again. 

The world is riveted by the capture of the terrorist mastermind, brought down by U.S. Special Forces in a daring raid. Now I am trapped between hoping I’ll hear from John and fearing what’ll become of my new life with Eric if I do. 

From a New York Times bestselling author, Five Years Gone, a standalone contemporary, is an epic story of love, honor, duty, unbearable choices and impossible dilemmas.
Five Years Gone is the kind of book that will have your emotions twisted in about a dozen different directions, never knowing what to expect next. Ava's story is one of great love, great despair, and finding the ability to feel like kind of great love again. But with that once in a lifetime ability to feel the love she has felt for two different men, comes the deep responsibility of holding those tow men's hearts in the palm of your hand with every with the ability to do so much harm, but give so much love. It's an impossible situation we're (as readers using Ava's life as a looking glass) faced with. 

There's no easy way to wade through the tumultuous mine field that is Five Years Gone. Ava is strong when she didn't think it was possible, and with Eric she finds someone to ease her burden. No matter that that burden should never be one lobbed onto his shoulders, but whoever said life is fair? John had an ever greater burden on his shoulders. And together, the three of them were forced with a reality of the utmost unfairness. 

This book is beautiful, and heartaching. Every time I thought there would be an easy out, the harsh realities came blindingly crashing in. And mixed in with the highs and lows, was in elicit, amazing, and sensual bond being made that made each emotional hit balance out.

Ava is an endearing character, and a realistic one as well. Despite my thought that she had every right to go huddle in a corner with hot chocolate and a fuzzy blanket to escape from the cruel hand she'd been dealt, she also needed her head yanked out of her you-know-where from time to time and she had the perfect man to do that. Relationships, of all kinds, are about the give and take. And that is emulated wonderfully in this book. 

With every touch of realism, romance, and entrancing storytelling Five Years Gone is a book to be savored and read with an open mind, heart, and calendar. You won't want to put this book down once you pick it up!

Title: Guilty As Sin
Author: Meghan March
Series: Sin #2
Release Date: September 18, 2018
From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.
If I thought Lincoln and Whitney's story couldn't get more heartbreaking, more enticing, more sexy, more everything, I was sadly mistaken. Thankfully, I was anticipating this book to keep me on the edge of my seat, and I was not disappointed. Guilty as Sin is the second in the Sin Trilogy, and while we learn more about Lincoln and Whitney's respective pasts, and their communal present, we also have a lot more questions presented to us as well. There is so much that I understand better, all of it making me fight and mentally demand Lincoln and Whitney have the most epic happily ever after ever, but there is so much that has me completely perplexed and in need of answers!

Lincoln and Whitney are sexier than ever in this second installment, and I am absolutely obsessed with their story. The Sin Trilogy is an absolute must-read. The wickedly spun narrative, the explosively passionate stolen moments, and the shocking turn of events that will leave your head spinning. All of that, and so much more, comes to a head in this evocatively wonderful novel!

Happy Reading!

Richer Than Sin (#1)

Reveling in Sin (#3)

A New York Times, #1 Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of over twenty novels, Meghan March has been known to wear camo face paint and tromp around in woods wearing mud-covered boots, all while sporting a perfect manicure. She’s also impulsive, easily entertained, and absolutely unapologetic about the fact that she loves to read and write smut. Her past lives include slinging auto parts, selling lingerie, making custom jewelry, and practicing corporate law. Writing books about dirty talking alpha males and the strong, sassy women who bring them to their knees is by far the most fabulous job she’s ever had. 


Title: Redemption
Author: Georgia Cates
Series: The Sin Trilogy #6
Release Date: September 18, 2018
I was on my way to having everything that I wanted… until I opened that door. That’s when my entire world shattered. In a single second, my happy life was gone.

She broke my heart. There, I admit it. But a Fellowship man doesn’t mourn the loss of a woman. He moves on to the next one. And the next. But what I quickly discover is that it doesn’t matter how many women I’m with. I’ll never find one who can replace Lorna Frazier.

I’ve been an arse, doing everything within my power to hurt her. And I’ve been successful at it. But it doesn’t heal the pain of losing the woman that I love. She is my everything, and I’m nothing without her.

Apart, we’re weak. Together, we’re strong. 
Apart, we’re in hell. Together, we’re in heaven.
Apart, we’re broken. Together, we’re whole. 

I won’t give up on us.
Oh this book gave me all the feels. With an expertly woven story of heartbreak, love, suspense, and yes, redemption, this book is a wonderful addition to Georgia Cates's Sin series. Lorna and Leith's story is one that we got hints of in previous books, but you get the full story in this installment from beginning to end. It just about broke my heart at times to see the impossibilities Lorna and Leith faced, but once they officially reunited, the story is just beginning.

I couldn't get enough of this book. I devoured it so quickly, entranced in rapt attention the entire time. If you're looking for an sexy alpha, a super sexy couple, and a thrill of mystery with your romance, this book is that and so much more! A definite must-read!

Happy Reading!
