Charlotte Taylor has three automatic strikes in my book: 1) She hates me. She also claims that I'm a "domineering jerk with a huge, overbearing ego". (I do have something huge. It's not my ego, though.) 2) She takes our mandatory tutoring sessions way too seriously. 3) She's sexy as hell...and a virgin. At least those were her strikes before our study sessions started lasting longer than they were supposed to. Until one innocent kiss became a hundred dirty ones, and until she became the first woman I ever fell hard for.

On a Tuesday, I started this book.
On a Tuesday, I fell for the arrogant jock.
On a Tuesday, I was hurt and angry but most of all confused.
On a Tuesday, despite all my conflicting emotions I couldn't help loving him.

Everyday is a Tuesday when you are in love.

He’s bossy, moody, and overprotective. He’s also a pro athlete who needs to focus on winning games and staying out of the headlines. I’m fiercely independent and need a man like I need a second period each month. So when our worlds collide, I never expected him to be the one to jump in and save me. Especially not when my roommate disappears, leaving me with her baby. I’m clueless about babies - and it shows. Good thing Alexei isn’t.

I had fun listening to Finding Alexei. Its sweet, sexy and has the perfect ever after.

I loved the narrators. Both are faves of mine and I constantly gobble up their performances.

The only disappointment I have is that Finding Alexei ends at Chapter 18 of 35. Done. It's over. I thought it was longer and so I'm mildly annoyed by the abruptness. The story completes it's full arc but when you listen and occasionally see the timeline for the listen you aren't expecting it to be over at the halfway point. sigh. Just a heads up

I had no idea where that was going from the beginning. I honest even fought with my gut on where it might have been going but I honestly never expected the full depth of the holy @#!+ wow factor.

Moonlight Sins is only the beginning. Taylor is the start of something both decadent and irresistible. No mortal would ever be able to resist all that this man is. I fell and I fell hard. Julia wasn't able to resist either. But don't worry, this is just the beginning of trouble with the de Vincents.

Everyone in the small country town that Sammy Jo Knox had been born and raised never left. They made their lives there. Got married, had kids, lived in the same houses that were always there along the streets that never changed. The whole white picket fence and tree swing might look good on greeting cards but, in real life, it was boring, at least to Sammy Jo. When Sammy Jo was a little girl she began dreaming of something bigger. Brighter. Something that wasn't her town. She wanted to see the world and experience it all.

So...

I'm not really sure how I feel about this one. I definitely want to know what happens next. I'm curious to see how this plays out. 

I'm actually slightly disappointed in Sammy Jo because I feel like she jumped ship way too fast. I guess we will see about that too. I just feel like this whole situation was a terrible idea. Hmm...

Can Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward please send Rush over ASAP? I will worry about the legalities of divorcing my husband after I have my hands on him!

Sigh...Dreamy swoony sigh...

Rush is...perfect. Beneath that brash, bad boy facade is a man most will swoon over. Others will hunt for. I will definitely dream about.

He's perfect. Okay, well mostly perfect. His one flaw I can see is the damn cigarettes. Since I'm allergic we will need to work on that but otherwise...perfection!

Gia needs to start writing all this down if she wants to submit on time. Can I also mention, I love her choice in audiobooks. 😆

I knew when I started this was a duet. But the reality of why didnt hit me until 3 minutes before it hit Gia. Enjoy gliding along in your happy obliviousness. I sure did. However, shit just got real! I cant wait to see how this all works out!

sigh. swoony, dreamy sigh.

Rebel Heart is an angsty, soap opera like mess. Life really can be complicated. Or at least Gia's is!

Rush isn't sure where he stands in the new plot development drama.

I wanted to shake the shit out of him while stroking his head and burying it in my cleavage. 😉 I don't say I was innocent. That man is dead sexy in his appearance, his protectiveness, and that heart of freaking gold.

Its impossible not rank Rush as one of the best book boyfriends ever!

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there.

I always try to brace myself for the flow of awesomeness but I always get so wrapped up in the story it's impossible to put a wall between you and the characters feelings, experiences, and love.

I fell hard. So hard for the enigmatic man that seemed to only want to be left alone.I couldn't help but be taken in by his bowties (previously a deterant for sexy thoughts). I wanted to run my hands through his hair and find ways to make him focus on me. So basically, I threw Charlotte to the curb and took her place!

But it wasnt me...its them! Their journey/love is everything a hopeless romantic dreams of. We embrace the wonderful, love through the hard, and pray for it all. Ward and Keeland always deliver. But I think this time they out did themselves.

Reed is everything. Everything.

I've made every one of my billions of dollars myself - I'm calculating, astute and the best at what I do. It takes drive and dedication to build what I have. And it leaves no time for love or girlfriends or relationships. But don't get me wrong, I'm not a monk. I understand the attention and focus it takes to seduce a beautiful woman. They're the same skills I use to close business deals. But one night is where it begins and ends. I'm not the guy who sends flowers. I'm not the guy who calls the next day.

Louise Bay has yet again wooed us, wined us, and made us fall in the arms of the last man we expected. Okay, not me, I totally knew I would fall- especially with Sebastian York whispering in my ears. (The man could read the chemical components of shampoo and I would sigh wistfully. okay, I wouldn't sigh but I would never tell him to shut up.)

Park Avenue Prince has the gives old friends a chance to say hi while making new ones. If you've been stalking her characters you recognize many. If you are a newbie, you will wonder what you've missed. I guarantee you will reach for the next book in the catalog, if you haven't already gone backwards.

This sweet and sexy story has kind of a reverse Cinderella going on. Don't let me boiled down rambling discourage you, its every bit worth the read/listen. Especially if you're looking for that ever sweet HEA.

Everything you want in a politician is wrapped up in a beautiful Prescott package. Kind, caring, and sexy make Drake Prescott a threat. Honesty, morals, and a need to make this country great make him a miracle.

Falling in love made him vulnerable. She makes him stronger. But is it enough?

Sacrifices must be made. Lives will be changed. Will love survive?

I enjoyed Lucy and Drake's descent. Falling in love is an amazing experience even if you have outside forces pulling you apart. Their journey is tense but has a happy ending.

Scythe is a dystopian series for all dystopian lovers- regardless of age. I had a blast "read in this as a family with my kids. I think I enjoyed it even more than them.

Citra and Rowan are everyday kids in an extraordinary situation. Life and its complexities are minimal in their world. But through luck, lack of wisdom, and chance...pick your version they wind up in the most complex of situations.

I found myself cheering, crying, and panicking for them. Young as they are their entire world is now different. The challenges the apprenticeship has brought them, the life they can't return to without being changed, it will all be different. Irrevocably changed. And all we can do is watch...like the Thunderhead.
