The average song is three and a half minutes long; those three and a half minutes could lead to a slow blink, a glimpse of the past, or catapult the soul into heart-shattering nostalgia. At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I'd always envisioned. I'd found my tempo, my rhythm. Then I received a phone call that left me off key.

O! M! F! G! BRAVO!!!
I fell in love with Kate Stewart’s writing when I read “The Brave Line”. I thought there was NEVER going to be a book of hers that I like better. O! M! G! was I wrong.
Drive…. I am literally speechless. I do not know what to write without giving anything away.
First, this book, Drive, FREAKING FANTASTIC.
Second, this is definite highly emotional roller coaster ride, with soooo many wonderful twists and turns. A Hero with a damaged soul. A Heroine, who saw into and beyond that damaged soul and helped him learn how and want to heal. Then, at the club when HE sang that song. Yeah, another cry moment. There were quite a few for me throughout this phenomenal book.
Da….er DARN you Kate Stewart, I am still crying trying to write this review!
ALL the characters in the story, were very well developed. There were times I really wanted to punch Paige. I could not figure her out sometimes. There were times I could not figure out if she really loved Stella or not. Sorry, I am not going to give anything away, no spoilers.
This book so complex, and emotional, it grabbed me from the very beginning. I did not want it to end. I see potential for several other books coming out of Drive. I can only hope Ms. Stewart does as well.
I was gifted with a copy of Drive for my honest opinion and review. YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!!!! No question. I loved this book so much, I bought both the digital version AND the Audible version as well. Ava Erickson brought this book to life spectacularly. Ladies, Kate and Ava, THANK YOU for giving me/us such an emotional story!!!
The only thing missing was the songs listed in each chapter of the book (yeah, I know, ....)
Thank you for reading my review.

Daniel Spencer is proud of the billion-dollar business he's built, but there are few things he enjoys more than creating something with his bare hands. Lake Tahoe has everything he's looking for - the lakefront cabin he's building for family and friends to enjoy, crystal clear water, and lush green mountains. Everything except the perfect woman to share it with. Until Tasha Summerfield literally falls into his arms.

I know, absolutely KNOW that Bella Andre does NOT know how to write a bad book. WRONG!!!! So, so WRONG!! That statement is wrong on so many levels. Let me start over. Bella Andre does not know to write a good book either. SHE WRITES PHENOMENAL BOOKS!!!!!
Wild in Love is the 5th book by Bella Andre in her Maverick Billionaires Series and let me tell you this. FABULOUS, PHENOMENAL, SECOND TO NONE!!!! I think I fell in love with Daniel Spencer and his parents, Bob and Susan from the very first book in this spectacular series. This book is totally stand-a-lone, and can be read by itself, but, you really do not want to. The series is just that great!
Daniel Spencer has watched his friends and brothers in all way but blood pair up over the last few months. He is truly happy for his friends but is a bit envious as well. He wants to find someone to share his life with as well. He finds Tasha Summerfield when he hears her cry for help and she literally falls into his arms.
Tasha has moved to a dilapidated old cabin is the woods of Lake Tahoe, doing penance for the misdeeds her father, brother an unknowingly herself have performed. She is renovating it using DIY videos Daniel and his business has created. She is doing quite well until the day she slips on the roof and is quite literally hanging from the edge of her roof when Daniel hears her cries for help and comes running.
The attraction between Daniel and Tasha is immediate. Although, Tasha refuses to let their attraction go any further because she feels that she is not good enough for Daniel because of what her family had done.
I loved watching these two work through their problems and become friends first and then lovers.
I know one thing, I want a Daniel of my own.
I was gifted with an early copy of this phenomenal book for my reading enjoyment. I loved this book so much, I also bought the Audible version. I highly recommend getting a copy of this wonderful book for yourself if you love reading romance. Bella Andre in my opinion is one of the greatest authors of contemporary romance!
Eva Kaminsky, what can I say about Eva Kaminsky? First, Ms. Kaminsky, Thank you for bringing this book, and so many others more to life for me. I have found several more authors to love from searching for books performed by you! Second, Ms. Kaminsky brings out even more of the emotions during her performance of the books that she reads.

Every Time We Fall in Love is the 18th book in Bella Andre’s Sullivan series. I have read each and every book in this phenomenal series and have always been left wanting more because each story is just that riveting. My favorite book in this series has always been “The Look of Love” Chase and Chloe’s story, not only because is was the beginning of this series, but also because of the story! But, something has happened, something I NEVER thought would happen!! Every Time We Fall in Love, Harry and Molly’s story has taken over the spot as my favorite Sullivan book, by a thread.
I thought this story was pure perfection. Emotional, check! Romantic, check! Tear jerker, check! Second chance love, check!!!!
Sixteen years ago, during her freshman year at college Molly Connal fell in love with Harry Sullivan. He was her first love, her first everything. Then the unthinkable happens, Harry breaks up with her, breaking, no, shredded Molly’s heart to pieces. Weeks later Molly goes to a college party trying to alleviate her heartbreak by getting drunk and doing something stupid, a one-night stand, only to find out 2 weeks later that she is pregnant. To a scum bag who wants NOTHING to do with a baby and tells her to get rid of it.
I absolutely LOVED Harry!!! No two ways about it. I wish everyone could have a brother/father/boyfriend like Harry. His dedication to his family…sigh. His need to put the needs of his family above his own wants and needs. However, this meant giving up Molly, and he breaks up with her. I LOVE Harry, but, and a very big but, I still wanted to punch him for doing this to Molly!!! Harry still, to this very day thinks about Molly, she was ,and always will be, the love of his life, and when his doorbell rings and he opens the door to the teenage girl, EVERYthing changes.
Amelia wants nothing more than to find out who her father is. Amelia sends in a DNA kit and the results shock everyone. She rings the doorbell and asks the man who answers, “Are you Harrison Jack Sullivan?” “Who are you?” “Amelia. Amelia Connal. Molly Connal is my mother.”
I think my favorite part of the books were the letters. Sorry ladies, I am not going to give anything away. I will say this, have the tissues ready. They were a tear jerker for me, a happy tear jerker, but a tear jerker none the less. OH, and the painting….. SIGH!!!
OMG, I LOVE the family dynamics of this particular part of the Sullivan family, including, Aldwin, Harry’s dog, or should I now say, Amelia’s dog (lol). Okay, who am I kidding, I LOVE the whole Sullivan Clan, San Francisco, Seattle, New York!!! I cannot wait for Maine, London… Ms. Andre and her Sullivan Series, in my opinion NEVER get old. I was gifted with a digital copy of the wonderful book, and I loved this book so much that I bought the audible too!! I love these stories that much. Which reminds me, I have to re-post my reviews there too!!!
Thank you, so much Bella Andre for sharing your spectacular storytelling abilities with your readers. I cannot thank you enough for the HOURS and HOURS of reading/listening pleasure you and Ms. Eva Kaminsky (the narrator for the Audible version) have given me over the years.
Ms. Kaminsky, that you for bringing yet another of Bella's books so much more to life for me.

WOW, just WOW!! One of my favorite genre of romance is “Rockstar” romance and One More Promise certainly fits that bill. BUT, IT IS SO MUCH MORE!!!
There is so much I can say I loved about this phenomenal book. The lead characters, Paige and Dylan, oh my, I love these two. Two lost souls, each with “familial” problems, each trying to solve the problems in their own way. Dylan became the “Bad Boy” long before he became the big “Rockstar” trying to get his parents attention. Unfortunately, he almost ruined himself trying to do it. Paige, she goes to the other extreme, she is practically making herself sick, bending herself backward, trying to impress her father. I could really go into a dislike even hate tangent regarding Paige’s family. I would really like to bi… slap Paige’s sister for the way she treats Paige. Sorry folks, I am not going to give ANYthing away. You NEED to read this wonderful book to see what I am talking about.
I REALLY loved the way that Paige went into meeting Mr. “Bad Boy, Rockstar” Dylan Anders with so, so many preconceptions. Then Paige met Dylan meet and talk get to know each other and, BAM, ALL those preconceptions were blown away. During these conversations, Dylan realizes that Paige’s familial situation IS worse than his was, and he and Paige bond even closer.
I absolutely LOVE Samantha Chase’s phenomenal writing skills. Ms. Chase has become one of my all time favorite authors over the last couple of years since discovering her. The way she develops the story line and the characters is phenomenal. I know when I pick up one of her books that she will take me into someone’s life and not let me out until I read the very last word. Her books are just that great!
I was gifted with a copy of this wonderful book for my reading pleasure and it most definitely did that, in spades and I just wanted to tell you why.

I am in love. Sorry Vivienne, I know he is yours. Oh, but sigh!!!! Why are the good ones taken??
I finished Samantha Chase’s latest release One More Kiss last week, and I am still bowled over. I was gifted with an early copy of One More Kiss at a time in my life that I really needed a reality vacation and I can honestly say that this book did that in spades. The story grabbed me from the very beginning and I could not put it down. I loved the relationship that developed between Vivienne and Matt from the very beginning. I liked the way the way Ms. Chase added substance to Matt and Vivienne by writing into the story of how they both felt guilty for keeping the relationship secret from Vivienne’s brother. It is one of the many things that made the characters more “real”.
I have been a fan of Ms. Chase’s books for two years now, I still have not read EVERYTHING she has written, YET (I will get there someday), but, I know without a doubt that when I pick up one of her books I will be in for a fantastic emotional ride. Thank you, Ms. Chase, for all the hours and hours of reading entertainment you give to your reading fans. We love you!

There is a line in this story "The book was better." I cannot say this. THE BOOK WAS PHENOMENAL!!! But, Christopher Kipiniak, Julia Motyka brought One More Moment more to life!!! They actually brought the whole series to life for me. Kudos, Christopher Kipiniak, Julia Motyka.

First, let me say this. This is NOT a series about “Rockstars”. It is a phenomenal series about four gentlemen who happen to be musicians as their profession.

I FREAKING LOVE this series, and Ms. Samantha Chase saved the best for last (in my humble opinion)!!! Charlotte and Julian, OMFG!!! Their story….sigh!! Don’t get me wrong, each and every book in this series has been phenomenal, but One More Moment….. It just struck a cord, or rather a drum beat, for me… Sigh

Ms. Chase has captured moments of Julian’s story in the previous books from this series. NO, you do not HAVE to read/listen the others (but you should) before you read this one, if you do, you will have a better understanding of just what Julian went through before the start of his story.

What a b… er witch!! WHY, HOW could you have done this? You had a man who loved you, would do anything for you!!! And, let me just say this….. I LOVED what Julian did at the wedding! One word: comeuppance!!! Sorry ladies, you need to read the book to find out what and who I am talking about. No Spoilers from me.
Now, Julian has left EVERYTHING behind for a while. She made him a laughing stock, in his mind anyway…

Charlotte, I LOVE THIS LADY!!! She would do pretty much any thing for someone in need. She fights for the families she encounters in her job. The day when she goes for coffee and the man ahead of her can’t pay for his coffee and muffin, she buys his breakfast with her own. He argues with her and she tells him to pay it forward next time. Julian, yep, Julian figures Charlotte just wants something from him. Surprise, Charlotte does not know who he is, or rather does not recognize him. When Julian realizes this, he really wants to get to know her. The more he is with her, the harder he/she falls.

One of my favorite lines in the book….. “The book was better.”. Sorry ladies, again, read the book, you will laugh about this too.

Now, I am sad. Why you ask? I am going to miss these people. Hopefully, maybe, Ms. Chase will write a follow-up novella and let us know how these guys are doing… I know, wishful thinking. When you read One More Moment, and the others as well, do Ms. Chase and me a favor please. Write a note to Ms. Chase’s Sourcebooks publicist and let them know how much you enjoyed these books. I am sure Ms. Chase will really appreciate it.

Riley Shaughnessy knew that to stand out in his large family, he'd have to go big. Making a name for himself as a musician wasn't easy, but he followed his dreams to rock-star success. But the relentless expectations of fans is not helping the slump he's in now. So of course the person who attracts him is the woman who is not impressed by fame. Which gives Riley Shaughnessy a lot to prove.

Any additional comments?

Sniff, sniff, darn these tears….. I can's see to type.
I just finished Samantha Chase’s latest, (or at this moment to be released) book, This is Our Song. This is Riley Shaughnessy and Savannah Daly’s story, and what a story it is. It is definitely, a tearjerker from beginning to end.
This is a fabulous book of love, not only between Riley and Savannah, but also between family. I do not want to give anything away, but I LOVE the way Riley’s mom comes into the story and how she was the rock that helped him to build his career in music. Let me say this, the tears were rolling down my face when Riley played the song Always You and then the encore they came even harder.
Thank you, Ms. Chase for this emotional story, I loved every single word. I was gifted with the opportunity to read a copy of this fabulous book before it was released, for this I was eternally grateful.
I LOVE a book that can emotionally suck me in the way this one did from beginning to end.

Would you listen to FREE: Every Beat of My Heart: The Sullivans (Wedding Novella) again? Why?

The question is not WOULD I listen to Every Beat of My Heart again, the question for me would be WHEN would I listen to this phenomenal book again. The reason: Bella Andre is an outstanding story teller.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I do not think I have a favorite character in ANY of Bella's Sullivan book. There is one character that is in each and every book that has a lot of impact however. That character is Mary Sullivan for raising 8 such outstanding children.

What does Eva Kaminsky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Eva brings emotions verbally to every book that I have listened to that she has performed.

Any additional comments?

Bella has hit another one out of the park, and has definitely taken the checkered flag with Every Beat of My Heart!!! This was a wonderful surprise Ms. Andre sprung on her fans this week. The book is a continuation to the wonderful Sullivan series. But, this is also an update on two couples, Ryan Sullivan, a world series winning pitcher and sculptor Vicki Bennett from Let Me Be the One, Book 6 and auto shop Zach Sullivan and dog trainer Heather Linsey from If You Were Mine, Book 5. I flipped when I found out that Ms. Andre wrote and had recorded as a continuation to these two outstanding books.The book continues the story of these two couples and the planning of their weddings. These Sullivan’s can accomplish anything when they put their minds to it. A wedding in two, no wait, a double wedding! We also see how the Sullivan family is growing. I am not going to describe any more about the book and give anything away. Let us just say there are a few surprises in store for you when you read this book. Ms. Andre has continued her phenomenal story telling skills with this book. She drawls you into the story to the point you never want to leave.Kudos Ms. Andre on another killer book! I can always count on one of your books to take me away from the grind of life for a while.Ms. Andre released this book first to Audible, and will be released to eBook and print next month on August 9.Thank you for reading my review.

Daxton Holt thought getting his honey on Mason's shelves would be simple. Walk in, flash a smile, and fill out some paperwork. But this owner was something else. She saw right through his charms, pushing him to really sell his product. He liked that, and he liked her. A feisty little minx is sweeter than any honey his bees made.

Would you listen to Daxton again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this book again because it is a wonderful book of fantasy. A book that will take you/me to another place, a time to relax.

Any additional comments?

I love a great shifter romance book and this one was definitely no exception to that premise. It has a wonderful story with a strong, determined heroine, and a just as determined hero.

Blair Mason own and runs a small mom and pop grocery store in town. She is determined to succeed, however the big chain store in town is making it very hard, and now she is going to have to lay off one or two much loved employees. She does not have any time for anything other than her store if she wants it to succeed. Then the tall, very well built man walks into her office. Hmmmm, well maybe some time.

Daxton Holt is part owner of a honey farm. He is very determined to get his line of honey products into the local store. When he sees Blair for the first time he turns on the charm, flashes his smile, this is going to be a piece of cake. Then, Daxton finds himself being lead to the door, maybe not so much a piece of cake. He is definitely going to have to work for this one.

I loved watching these two battling it out, learning to trust each other, becoming friends, then lovers. I really like the personality of Daxton, the fact that he was just as determined to help Blair’s store grow as he was at selling his products to her.

I was introduced to this wonderful author when I was gifted with an audio copy of Daxton by Meghan Kelly, the narrator. I had not previously read/listened to any of her work. Now I have found another “shifter” author to follow, so “Thank you” Ms. Kelly for introducing me to Ms. Fanning’s books.

Meghan Kelly did a superb job performing this book, she definitely further brings this book to life with her performance.

This is the first book in Ms. Fanning’s 120 Proof Honey series. I look forward to reading/listening to more from this wonderful series in the future.

Thank you for reading my review.
