I am loving this Stage Dive Series and even though they’re standalones I’ve been reading them in order and have been particularly curious to Jimmy’s story. This man has layers upon layers that slowly are peeled back when Lena gets hired on and their friendship grows. I can completely understand the emotions Lena has as she is literally the shadow of Jimmy day in and day out. The will they won’t they is a battle I found myself questioning outloud more often then not through their story and it drive me mad but at the same time it was wonderful seeing them experience each other on a work based and then blooming friendship level. When you’re around the members in this band you know you’ll be laughing at their antics at times and there is no short comings of that happening again now. This is a great read, a rockstar romance that you need to bump to the top of your TBR list if you haven’t already.

3.8 This was a good thriller that kept you on your toes thinking throughout the story and it’s a believable scenario as well. There were moments were I felt a bit of lag but it didn’t last long and I was pulled back in a curious to see what was to happen next. Towards the end is where the story comes full circle and what you thought you knew was just the tip, everything is revealed and leaves us with a great closer.

Ever since Scarlet Rocket showed up in the flesh, she's turned my structured world upside down. My neatly ordered life, my hand-painted Aliens versus Vampires figurines, my expertly curated comics collection - none of these things provide any shelter from her sexy, sassy onslaught. It's a disaster of my own making. She didn't exist until I created her. Now, I can't get her out of my mind, and all I want to do is get her into my bed. Never mind that she's a thief, a liar, a con woman. Every step she takes leaves chaos in her wake. And damn if I don't want more of it.

3.7 this is a good light read that will have you chuckling at times hearing some questions and answers for “Scarlet Rocket”. There were times that I just felt myself dragging along to the story but over all I’m happy I’ve read it. Willis is a man of mystery to those reading his blog, when an email crosses his path unintentionally everything changes. “Scarlet” has a mission to help Hanna and will do anything she needs to get it done. Towards the end I was pulled in the most and Elias made it for me, that man is hilarious.

This is a steamy friends to lovers romance with a taboo treat wrapped all into one. Caitlyn gets to celebrate her birthday with not one but TWO of her best friends and they make sure to give her everything she’s been looking for. Tristan and Matt are so different yet alike at the same time and seeing how they are with not only Caitlyn but with each other makes me fall for them more and more. There were times that I was irritated with Caitlyn and her actions but over all this is a great story and would recommend you read. It is based around a holiday theme but I can see it being enjoyed all year round.

Narration wise Meghan Kelly has me hooked, this woman pulls me into a story and I just never want to hit pause. The separation of each character blows my mind, you would think there are multiple narrators performing. Story wise 3.7 stars. This is not your typical rockstar romance with having a female take the lead and I thought that was a nice switch up. Laz was living the life of being part of his own band until life threw an unexpected twisted and changed his world, Aundrea “Drea” wasn’t expecting what the future had in store for her either and we’re taken on an adventure with both of them as they both learn and grow both as individuals and in the music industry. The story itself I felt had a few dragged out moments but once the storyline picked up my attention was held and you’re guaranteed a HEA that will leave tears in your eyes. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

He’s the wildest guy in his band, but falling for a virgin groupie-in-disguise might be his craziest move yet. Keyboardist West Reynolds’s idea of commitment? Going out for breakfast with a woman after a night of bed-breaking action. The only thing he gets serious about is Warning Sign, the band he formed with his two best friends. Then he meets a woman being hauled off by security, and she’s fascinated by him. To her, he’s a subject to study. Like a bug under a microscope with a big…head. Lauren Bryant is a student of psychology, and now she’s going in depth on rockstars.

3.7 I am all about the rockstar romances and this duo has done a great job with intertwining together to create this story. Lauren being a psychologically major and having limited sexual experience fits the personality portrayed here but at the same time to me she seemed a bit robotic more often then not. West is the keyboardist for the band Warning Sign, he is all about his music and not much else until he catches Lauren in the crowd during a concert. As the story develops I did enjoy seeing Lauren open up and continue to push past what she’s known and be open to try all the desires she’s wanted. West shows us that there’s so much more to this man then meets the eye. This is a standalone in a series so if you don’t read the books in order you won’t be lost which in my case worked out wonderfully. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

Looking for a holiday read to get you in the Christmas spirit, then this story is for you. Noelle’s past touches on a sensitive but very real subject that makes you stop and think while your heart breaks for her at the same time. This story is so much more then the subject at hand though, this author has built this story into a sweet romantic love story. Roman is a man that has it all except when he realizes there’s one person in particular that he needs to go that extra mile to get the attention of. I adored how persistent he was and hearing their story develop just had me smiling more often then not. Great read and a guaranteed HEA. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

Kai and Wen have made this story come to life. I enjoyed the personalities portrayed for each character. Story wise 3.7 This was a sweet story and although I haven’t read the previous books this is an interlocking stand-alone so I wasn’t lost. We’re given Adley and Lincoln’s story and who doesn’t enjoy a “brothers best friend romance” am I right?. Overall this is a light read with a few moments that come up and hit on serious topics on Lincoln’s side. I enjoyed the book however I wasn’t pulled into the point where I had that desire to grab hold every moment I had to see what happens next for these two. I can still see myself grabbing more in this series and finding out more about the other characters. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

He wasn't meant to be on my radar; he was definitely the off-limits guy. My brother's best friend, my friend's ex, but most of all he was my boss. Hawk Carnage resembled one thing, and one thing only. Sex. He used it, he knew it, he lived it. Hawk owned the largest lingerie company in the world, and I was his leading lady. In business. But now business and friendship were about to be crossed. The lines blurred, and I was ready to dip my toes in the forbidden water.

This is a great collaboration between these two authors. It did take me a little time but not that long to start falling for Hawk. I always enjoy that office romance/ brothers friends type tropes. The storyline held my interest throughout and we were even given a few twists and turns. As we move further into the story I was more and more intrigued with where things were heading and couldn’t find out the events fast enough. Wonderful story and I will definitely be looking into more of these two authors work in the future.

What a story! Chloe has secrets that refuse to stay in the past and what becomes of her life now is filled with suspense and page turning reveals little by little. My mind was thinking so many different scenarios for more then half this book and when it all began to click my jaw was left on the floor. We’re left with a cliffhanger that will have you dying to jump into book two right away.
