Wedding hookups never amount to anything. Those who partake in this wicked little activity know the rules. Get in. Get laid. Get out. There's no expectation of a relationship. It is what it is. Dylan Sparks knows the rules. She's familiar with the protocol. And she engages in the best sex of her life with a complete stranger at her ex-boyfriend's wedding. Reese Carroll doesn't care about the rules. He wants more than just one night with Dylan. And Dylan finds him too addicting to pass up.

🌟🌟🌟·75 Sweet Stars

This one was a sweet romance, and sometimes I just need a bit of sweet.

Dylan is a baker, she runs her own business and has quite a fanbase as she will make anything you ask for (within reason)

She is a dab-hand at making Wedding cakes and we meet her after she has delivered and is a guest at her cheating Ex's wedding!

After literally falling into the lap of a sexy man she decides that a little bit of sneaky wedding sex will be just the ticket to take away her blues.

Reese isn't going to pass up the chance to have some "extra" fun at the wedding and him and Dylan sneak off to find a room for some fun.

After getting on swimmingly in the *ahem* bedroom department, Reese and Dylan decide to go ahead with a 'friends-with-benefits' type of relationship, of course you all know how that turns out!

We know how Dylan feels about Reese as she is telling the story, but she doesn't know how Reese feels about her, so she just carries on with the agreement and doesn't make her feelings known.

There are a few arguments, a couple of great face slapping moments, and a silly misunderstanding that could have been rectified if only they would just talk to each other!

🎧🎧 Narrated by Piper Goodeve who is a new narrator for me, but did a fantastic job!

I enjoyed this story, but it was a little too sweet for me and i just Personally needed a little more oopff, but if you like sweet stories then you will LOVE this one!!

Something inside me fiercely craves normal. Sheltered all my life and taught to be afraid, I want to be bold, fearless. Up until now, I've kept myself and my heart safe. Tade Astor, a guy so hot he steals my breath away, jeopardizes it all. He isn't the kind of guy to give up on what he wants - me. He's determined to prove my safe world is missing something - him. Even though he may not be the cocky guy I assumed him to be.... He's definitely not the guy I should give my heart to.

Well this one was certainly a surprise read for me, looking at the cover i was thinking it was going to be my normal boy meets girl, sweet and sexy romance that i like, and then BAM, it all changed in an instant.

This one is a dark one guys, it contains things that are not very nice so you need to be aware of this before you go in thinking it will be sweet and fluffy like me!

Tade Astor is the epitome of college hot bad boy, his family has connections, and he is quite happy bed hopping and is not looking for a relationship as he has his life mapped out in front of him.

Reagan Winters is getting by as best she can, considering her mother is so over protective it's disturbing, she has never learned how to drive, doesn't have a bank account, isn't looking for a man or a relationship.

After a brief encounter Tade decides that Biscuit aka Reagan will be his, and after a few close encounters they start to date, but they both have secrets that they are hiding from each other!

Along with this story, another is intertwined, this is where the story gets dark.
Told by someone you don't know, is a story about another person, a person who is traffiked, beaten and raped, although the details are not hugely graphic, they are still enough to be a warning for anyone who may be triggered by this.

This Mystery unfolds throughoutt the book and is done brilliantly, i had no idea until the end, although i had my suspicions.

🎧🎧 Narrated by a new to me but new voice crush Jason Clarke, and the always awesome Erin Mallon, this is one to add to your TBR pile.

I only wanted a tattoo. A mark on my body to remind me of who I used to be. Something to hold onto when I started my penance for all the things I'd done wrong, the bad choices I'd made by the time I turned 19. Instead, I found a night of possibility, of truth, of hope for the future. And the most intense physical connection I've ever had. The only one I've ever had, and one I will never forget.

New author to me Nana Malone makes this one new author for me to look out for.

This was a lovely little sports romance, rich famous tennis player, meets poor ex tennis player.

Bryce Coulter is a semi famous tennis player, he has had an injury and had to have an operation so he is not playing at the moment.
This doesn't stop his filly of bed mates though, his family name makes him just as attractive as he is!

Tami Ivey has had a bit of a rough time, she was at one point a professional tennis player, but gave this up to look after her sick, dying mother.

A couple of years later she also has another devastating blow, and finds herself dating a horrid man that treats her really badly.
So tennis helps her forget her life problems.

Bryce and Tami meet one evening while she is practicing, and he decides that she is the one for him, only she doesn't see it that way!

Doing all of the chasing, Bryce and Tami start dating, but it isn't without it's hurdles, and Bryce's family don't help either!

🎧🎧 Narrated by Sebastian York #SebYes and new to me narrator Traci Odom, who did a great job, Mr York is a narrator that i openly stalk on Audible, so this book was a no brainer for me, and the pair did a great job.

Crack out the strawberries and cream!

Through the haze of vodka and self-loathing, Hazel Roundtree saw the poor creature lying in a ditch. One brown eye. One blue. Covered in mud and crying from pain, the puppy was desperately trying to free itself from a hopeless situation. She almost kept walking by. She had her own problems, and besides...no one had ever stopped to help her. Hazel had no idea the dog would be her beginning, her second chance, the miracle she never saw coming.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Mans Best Friend Stars

Anyone that has ever owned a dog should read this book, even if you haven't you should read this book!!

This book has FEELS guys, lots and lots of feels!

Told from 2 POV's, this story was expertly written by Sawyer Bennett.

POV 1 is Hazel, she has had a rough time, she was a high school dropout, has a cr*ppy job, and is feeling pretty cr*ppy about her life.
She was married young, and for a time she was happy, until her husband decided to see if the grass was greener in someone elses garden, and subsequently kicks her out leaving her homeless.

Her best friend takes her in and lets her stay with her and her boyfriend on her couch, and she's happy there too........for a while.

While walking home one day in the rain, nursing a hangover from the bar she works at, and after spending her last bit of money on cigarettes she hears a noise, and looks into a ditch by the side of the road, seeing a muddy mound moving, but caught in some barbed wire.

Walking down to help out what she thinks is a raccoon she soon realises it's a puppy!

After getting the wire off of him she see's that he's hurt, so she wraps him up and takes him to the nearest vet.

This is where we meet Dr Peele, and he will eventually become a huge part in Hazels life, but for now he is a cranky old man.
He helps fix up the puppy, and gives him back to Hazel, who can't even look after herself, let alone a dog!
So they come to an understanding, because Hazel has no money to pay for the dogs treatment, she will work for Dr Peele as payment!

POV 2 is from the dog himself, Atticus!

Atticus is a Bernese Mountain dog, and he is naughty!!

Of course he's not called Atticus at the beginning, but we hear from him when he escaped, when he got stuck in the ditch, and when he was rescued by Hazel.

We hear about how he feels about certain people, about smells, about his little puppy family, but most of all we hear of his love for Hazel

The story is how they both saved each other, and mix that in with a few other characters like Bernard the homeless guy, and you've got yourself one hell of a perfect book 😇

You will also hear in the book the Atticus has his own Instagram page, this is a real thing, yes i looked it up, yes i am now a follower.

🎧🎧 Narrated by the incredibly talented Bahnni Turpin, this book was a double whammy for me, one because it is SAWYER BENNETT PEOPLE! and two, Bahni Turpin!
If she narrated a grocery list, i would buy it!

He was tall, at least six feet, with dirty blond hair that hung over his eyes. His T-shirt read Nietzsche Is My Homeboy. So, that was Matt. Who Julie Seagles likes. A lot. But there is also Finn. Who she flat out loves. Complicated? Awkward? Completely. But really, how was this freshly-minted Boston transplant and newbie college freshman supposed to know that she would end up living with the family of an old friend of her mother’s? This was all supposed to be temporary.

Gush gush gush gush gush..........

If I didn't gush enough for you then let me break it down for you, I kinda LOVED this book.

I've read so much YA at the minute with instalove, rippling muscles and lopsided smiles ( What the hell is a lopsided smile anyway? I mean try to do one now....GO ON ... see, you look like a total freak, do it in the mirror ......do you look sexy hmm? NO you look like a serial killer! )

Anyway where was I ........ oh yeah gushing haha.
So this was not the usual YA book it was a little bit different.

Julie gets a placement for a university in Boston, gets her bags packed and off she goes, however when she gets there the apartment she has secured is not so much as secure but non existent.
Good old mum calls a friend of hers from years back who tells Julie to go and stay with them.............thats when the weirdness starts.

So Julie is collected by Matt who is a quite handsome but geeky to take her back to the house.

Later she is then joined at dinner by Erin (Mother and a bit of a snob) Roger ( A biologist who studies the excitment of shrimps!) Matt ( Geeky know it all with bad dress sense) Celeste ( Matts younger sister who talks like she is in a period drama) ........And Flat Fin (A lifesize cardboard cut out of the older brother!)
This at dinner is all perfectly normal with everyone no one even bats an eyelid at FF, and they just go about their dinner as normal.

This is also a tiny bit wierd for Julies liking, but then finds out that Fin is travelling around the world and Celeste uses the flat version to compensate for the fact her brother is not there.

Julie settles in nicely and gets close to all of the family especially Matt and Celeste, but most of all Fin.

Ahhhh Finn .....swoon.

Have you ever fallen in love with someone you have never met?
After friending him on facebook and chatting regularly Julie realises that they are falling for each other.

NOW dear readers after reading that little bombshell you would in fact be doing the whole erghhh...... come on Vicci you told us it wasn't an instalove book.

But this book is different....... it's like a jigsaw, you know when you start doing it you find the nice straight edges, fit them together and then the fun begins, and there is always that last piece, that you can not find, and it's always there but it's hiding behind the others. ...THAT IS THIS BOOK.

I laughed out loud
I nearly cried
I shouted OMG at the top of my voice.

What can I say............but gush!

My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except for her. I watch Becca, though she doesn't know. She saved me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her into a target. My father holds a grudge and knife with the same proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I'm the only monster who can save her.

Ho-hum another book another tattooed guy what's a girl to do!!

Fenix 'Nix' for short is a troubled boy, he has had a really bad upbringing by a really nasty father.

Beaten and mentally tortured by his father, Nix is waiting for the day he is old enough to leave.

On a random shopping spree his father goes into his usual threats, this day however he is spotted by someone who comes over to help unfortunately it is only a little girl named Rebecca.

She stands up for him when no one else ever has and Nix never forgets her.

Becca now waits tables at a local bar and Nix has turned into a cold hard killer, to stop him from looking like his father he is tattooed with a skeleton from head to foot.

Nix never forgot Becca and knows where she works, in fact he knows where she lives, who her friends are, and spends his time making sure that she's safe, Becca doesn't know this obviously and goes about her days in complete ignorance.

A chance for Nix to meet Becca arrives when the bar has a Day of the Dead themed party, everyone has their face painted so Nix just blends right in.

I loved the way this book developed and I love the relationship between Nix and Animal he was such a brilliant friend I hope that there is a book for him soon.

🎧🎧 Narrated by two of my favourite people Muffy Newtown and Zachary Webber.

These two take the book to a whole new level, Muffy's man voice will make you swoon and Zachary voice as usual is off the chart hot 🔥🔥

WOW!!!!

I listened to this bad boy all in one sitting, and i loved every single guitar picking second of it!

Rachel has always known that she had a famous father, her mother told her when she was very young, however she never told her any of the important information, like how they met, or stories about him.
The only thing she knew is that her father didn't want her, and her mother didn't like him, or men in general for that matter!

This unfortunately fuels Rachel's fire and she uses this as a weapon against her mother by downloading all of his tracks, and putting posters of her father on her bedroom walls.

Rachel has never met, seen, or spoken to her father, but after her mother dies she has the chance of moving out of the Social Services children's home, and moving in with her father, who turns up to meet, and claim her.

This story takes you on a roller-coaster of emotions, from the sweet grin that you give when she exchanges emails with Jake .......*swoon* to the fist pump in the air when she decides that maybe Freddie isn't a complete douchebag after all!

I love the fact that Freddie didn't turn into "superdad" all of a sudden and he had his fair share of f*ck ups, and i love the relationship between Haze & Rachel (Could be Hayes, not sure of spelling as on audio)

Considering this is the authors first step into YA she did a brilliant job made it seem like it's her normal genre, for anyone that's read any of Sarina Bowen's other books you would know that it isn't 😉

🎧🎧 Narrated by the always awesome and talented Kate Rudd, this book was brilliantly narrated and I would recommend it to anyone.

This one is well worth a credit get ready for those feels.

No doubt about it, Sebastian "Oz" Osborne is the university's most celebrated student athlete - and possibly the biggest douchebag. A walking, talking cliché, he has a filthy mouth, a fantastic body, and doesn't give a sh-t about what you or anyone else thinks. Jameson Clarke may be the university's most diligent student - but she is no prude. Spending most of her time in the hallowed halls of the library, James is wary of pervs, jocks, and douchebags - and Oz Osborne is all three. She's smart, sarcastic - and not what he expected....

⭐⭐⭐⭐·5 Cardigan Wearing Stars!

Jameson 'James' Clark is an exceptional student and works hard at it, she dresses in very conservative clothes, and wears pearls, but she is no prude!

Sebastian 'Oz' Osbourne is the darling of the high school, a wrestling champ, and the guy that all of the girls want to bang, which he takes full advantage of.

After a bet with his friends in the library to get "the prude" to kiss him, you would think that the story would turn into the usual girl swooning and turning into putty in his hands.......but nope!
James gives as good as she gets and makes him work for it.

I loved this story, loved the 2 of them together, loved the banter between them.

The angst and steam level between Oz and James is a slow burn, turning into an inferno!

The story is witty, funny and made me laugh all the way through.

Well another Malone brother to fall in love with....sigh, it's a hard life 😂

Grayson is a single dad (swoon) his son Luke is his life, he lives and breathes for him.

After an awful break up, Grayson and Luke live very happily together, and reading those 2 together made me fall in love with him BEFORE even reading the rest of the story!

Sidney is a rich kid, her father owns a very sucessful business, and as a kind of punishment, sends Sidney back to her old childhood hometown to help save a magazine from folding.

Trying to find hot dads for a cover competition isn't that difficult, however there is one man she really wants and he is having NONE of it!

Sparks fly and the heat rises with these 2, i gradually came to love Sidney as she was a little cold at the beginning. 

But apart from Grayson there is one more star of this book, Luke 💗 he was absolutely adorable, and if i didn't love Grayson enough, the relationship between father and son nearly made my phone spontaneously combust

🎧🎧Narrated by the always fabulous Grace Grant, and the sexy voice of Zachary "voice crush" Webber, these 2 made the listening experience even better for me after i had already read the book
