It’s every girl’s dream, getting rescued by a handsome stranger. When I woke up and saw Kit Green standing over me, I thought he was an angel. I didn’t see the dark wings. What is he doing out here all alone? I don’t question it at first. I’m too busy being blinded by intrigue and desire. If it weren’t for him, I’d be dead. I want to repay him with my body. But things quickly begin to not add up. This cabin is full of secrets. It’s cold outside, but I’m starting to think he came out here to burn for his sins.

I'm a short read kind of girl and the steaminess in this one was amazing for just 3 hours. Maybe not worth a credit for the length but great characters and chemistry between the h and H.

She makes the cutest FF books. Everytime i'm in a reading rut, one of Jea's books reminds me why I like reading. She's super great at taking the tropes from mainstream romances and adding them to niche ff romances. This one was great and I loved reading it.

I really liked this book. There was more drama in the background than in the main arc, which I think I would’ve liked since her other books have had MAD drama. But let me tell you, it was adorable how they became a natural hair vlogger power couple. It was adorable to see it unfold from him accidentally being in her videos to them branding themselves as a couple online. Black love y’all 😂

The book starts out the hero as the tenant to the heroine and everything moves from there. Ryan is a sexy tall terra-cotta/light brown dude with hazel green eyes who despite being a good person has a bad history with treating women right, and Angela is a brown skin 4c naturalista whose been burned in long term relationships.

They shouldn’t have worked but on time they broke each other down. Some parts were a little boring but only in comparison to her series about celebrities since these were for the most part normal people.

This author releasing audiobooks was the best thing to ever happen to me!

Was a little bored in the beginning but it picked up by the end. I wish the romance would had been the main theme of the plot since that's what the blurb implies. It was a great tale of an ensemble cast of characters that I eventually ended caring about by the book's end. Definitely more women's fiction though. Still a good book!

Until now, the map was only the stuff of legend…but with its help, Grace may finally be able to hunt down the Mordgris, the sea monsters who stole her mother away from her. Unfortunately, some members of her crew have other plans...

I loved that this book featured an all female ship. Not a lot of pirate books do, especially in audiobook form(my fave). I was a little reluctant when the main character broke their code within the first half, inviting men/boys on their ship, which I guess was supposed to introduce the love story, but seeing an all female ship, I would've loved a female love interest.

But it focused on a lot of world building, and the narration was great, but there is a cliffhanger, which really sucked but I liked it enough to head onto to book two!

I got this book in audiobook form in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this rock star romance. The lovey scenes were the best part, and I liked that the LI was from Norway. It was an escapism book, not realistic in the scene but still enjoyable. The narrator did a good job with the different accents though my only complaint with this second chance MM romance was that it wasn't IR. Since this author mainly does IR under this pen name, I assumed her MM books would be too.

I liked the story a lot. It was an unconventional story(both the characters had love interests and were fighting for custody of a child they shared). The narrator was a little annoying but got the job done. Since the main characters were technically married they did cross a line but I'm not sure an audience would see it that way since her SO was blink-you-miss-it, and his fiancee was a spiteful person.

The real thing I didn't connect to was how no one was responsible for anything. Both MCs weren't once fit to be parents at one point, and while I understood the author wasn't trying to put blame on anyone, a child doesn't care if you're injured or have a breakdown. They wanted their child when "they" wanted him, even though he was settled with his grandparents. I do believe parents should have parental rights, but not if they both hadn't done the work but want to reap the benefits.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Overall it was a HEA and I liked it.

He's a man who gets what he wants, and what he wants is the lovely Kimberly Hampton. Kim Hampton is the director of a community center, a woman who lives to help others while trying to forget a troubling past. As far as she's concerned, a relationship with any man is a horrible idea. But a relationship with Leland McClain? That's just out of the question. He has to have her. She is undeniably attracted to him. But will she lower her guard and let him hold her?

Let me start by saying that Ms. House is an amazing storyteller who makes you invested in her characters where you actually care about them like theyre real people! I went into this book not loving the hero or heroine. Not because they weren’t likeable but because the first book was such a hard act to follow.

Big South was a hero I felt like will go down in time as top five book boyfriends for me. So my first few hours reading(I read the audiobook since that’s my preferred method) I wasn’t sure I even liked either character, or if I thought they worked well together. Leland McClain was a funny hero but I convinced he could go toe to toe with Everett. Let me just say that this is why this author is so good at getting you in your feelings because Leland was one of the best heroes I read since Ev!

These McClain brothers exert the maximum efforts when it comes to loving the women in their lives. They are selfless, devoted, caring and always want to do more than what is asked from their women. A lot of men could learn a lot from these brothas 😂 I know they aren’t real, but geez, why can’t men like this actually exist? A lot of men not raised right pat themselves on the back for doing the bare minimum in relationships but these characters take love a step further! I was so impressed with how Leland went from not wanting a wife or kids to wanting everything with Kim and wanting to be the one man she could rely on.

At first I was not a Kim fan. I thought she came off as weak and I hated how she blamed herself for how her son was. I truly felt like none of that was her fault and honestly, I was really hoping they were going to recommend therapy for her son because clearly he had demons that he had to deal with and hadn’t done a great job at doing that. Anyone who could control the one mother that you’re ever going to have, needs helps. I really wanted real help for his character. I think that’s the only thing I would have changed about the book. But yea Kim at first didn’t strike me as strong as Jo did, even though I liked that she was older, bigger and resembles me more than Jo did being darker skinned. But I grew to like her and eventually wanted the best for her.

I was really going to give this one a four at first but getting deeper in the story I felt like it was Five worthy. I can’t wait for book three to come out in audio. These audio narrators are amazing and bring the story so much life!

I don’t usually like stories that have so little conflict but this one was entertaining and I looked forward to every chapter. Because the hero and heroine are a married couple I didn’t expect to see the conflict you see in boy meets girl stories, and it was interesting to read about a couple who was entering a reawakening of their sexual desires. They had some interesting fantasies and I loved how open and willing they were to explore that together. I almost wish there were more. I wasn’t ready for the story to end yet. One of the best BDSM for beginners I’ve read in a long time! Five deserved ⭐️

The last book I read by this author just did the playtime better, since I came for that I was disappointed. The plot was less offensive than the other read of hers I tried which was a plus but it wasn’t better. Will try this author again though.
