I loved this anthology and decided that the best way to review it is to write few words for each of the stories J. So here it is:

Searching for you

I love Jennifer Probst and her books J. She always writes these sweet romantic stories with a little spice, just enough to melt your panties. Searching for … series is one of my favorites and Searching for You definitely didn’t disappoint. Riley and Dylan are so much fun. Their constant bickering is just making everything hotter. And when they finally fall in bed together … they just burn the sheets ;) I loved the whole idea of them being meant to be together but never realizing it until that moment when faith (in the form of cleverly written matching program) throws them together after ten years of separation. I can guarantee that you will enjoy this short romantic story. The perfect fit for a cold winter night J

It’s a Wonderful Tangled Christmas Story

I love Drew and Kate. Drew cracks me up every single time without fail and this short story wasn’t an exception J. It was really interesting to visit the characters few year later and to see how they settled into married life. The reference to Christmas Carol was a really good idea and I loved the reminder that family and loved once should always come first. This short story is definitely recommended to all Tangled lovers. You won’t be disappointed J

Saving Grace 

I floved the main characters in this story. It was fun to see a heroine who is somewhat of a klutz and not perfect at all. And Jacob… yummy – British billionaire playboy who falls the moment he sees Grace. And with that we have the perfect ingredients for a great romantic story J. And of course I wasn’t disappointed. There were some quite hilarious moment that made me laugh quite hard and there were some quite hot scenes that definitely left me breathless. So I would just say that this was another perfect addition to the anthology J.

Safe In His Arms

The Anderson Series is one of my favorite series and I will read pretty much everything Melody Anne writes. Well, Hawk and Natalie didn’t disappoint. It was definitely interesting to see how to completely different personalities fall in love against all odds. It was for sure fun to read about Hawk’s fall from the playboy bachelor lines and it was really great to see short glimpses of the lives of some of my favorite characters from other Melody Anne books. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this short story and can’t wait to read the rest of the stories in this series J

Rekindle The Flame

This is the first book I read by Kate Meader but definitely it’s not going to be the last one. This is a short heartfelt story about love lost and found, about what it takes to be who you are, no matter of other people’s opinion. I loved Beck and Darcy and the whole fated to be together vibe of the story. It was great to see their reunion after year being apart and finding their way back to each other. The feeling of strong family values was a great touch and I would love to read more about the Dempsey brothers and the people who are going to fulfill their lives. This is definitely a good story to relax during a cold winter night J

As a whole this is a great anthology by some of the best author out there. You won't be disappointed if you decide to dive into it during the cold winter nights  J

Review: Rome

Title: Rome (Marked Men #3) 
Author: Jay Crownover 
Synopsis: Sometimes the wrong choice can be just right . . . Fun and fearless, Cora Lewis knows how to keep her tattooed "bad boy" friends at the Marked in line. But beneath all that flash and sass is a broken heart. Cora won't let herself get burned again. She's waiting to fall in love with the perfect man—a baggage-free, drama-free guy ready for commitment. Then she meets Rome Archer. Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He's stubborn, rigid, and bossy. And he's returned from his final tour of duty more than a little broken. Rome's used to filling many roles: big brother, doting son, supersoldier—but none of those fit anymore. Now he's just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the dark demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer through it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes a blinding flash of color in a sea of gray.Perfect may not be in the cards, but perfectly imperfect could just last forever . . .

My Review:
Rome is the third book in the Marked Men series by Jay Crownover. It was definitively one of the most anticipated books in my 2014 TBR list. I loved Rule and I liked Jet so when I had in my hands Rome I didn´t know what to expect because each character is so different: Rule is the bad boy, Jet is the rock star and Rome is a badass. Archer brothers rule!!

Rome follows the same narrative dynamic of alternating point of views. Rome narrates the uneven chapters while Cora narrates the pair ones, even though some scenes overlap each other they don´t feel repetitive because by getting inside each character´s mind we get a completely different feeling while reading the same scene, it is like you are reading a whole new scene. Rome is the most real book, it feels believable, there are issues that need time to resolve, there is drama and the relationships between the characters builds slowly. In Crownover´s fashion, the characters have to fight till the end of the story in order to achieve the happiness they are looking for.

I loved both Cora and Rome, they seemed like an unlikely couple at the beginning but in fact they are perfect for each other. Cora´s feisty attitude crashes with Rome´s fierceness and their loyalty and sense of rightness made them perfect. I also liked that we still get to know more about the previous couples and the characters that are still single. The author makes you enjoy the story that is currently taking place while at the same time she makes you remember why you loved the series in the first place while making you need the next books in the series. Jay Crownover is a master teaser!

Rome is full of angst, romance, tears and hope. It is the most heartbreaking book of the Marked Men series till the moment and I cannot wait to read the rest about the lives of these hotties and tattooed men.

Conflagration is the second in an Explosive spin-off series called The Wellingtons.
Can be read as a standalone


Branson Wellington? The name, my name, is usually followed by arrogant prick or self-serving bastard, and I can't say I haven't earned those titles. It's true. I'm not the good guy. I'm not the boy next door. I'm definitely not your Prince fucking Charming. Not even close. And I never wanted to be. Until her. The day I pulled her from the wreckage was the day that my life changed. Who would have thought that one little lie had the power to throw two lives off course? Love has never been in the cards for me, but now that she’s here, I have no idea how I’m ever going to let her go. Even if I don’t deserve her. Because like I said, I’m a self-serving bastard and some things never change.

“There are some questions I need to ask you, but we can do that in a little bit. Until then, is there anyone you want us to call? Someone on scene was able to find your purse, which fortunately hadn’t been destroyed in the blast. There was no emergency contact information in your purse, however, and you’ve only been out of surgery for a couple of hours. We haven’t been able to track anyone down as of yet.” The last thing I want is Victoria and William showing up here, especially with Benjamin in tow. Not wanting to worry anyone, I decide I’ll call Alyssa once things calm down. “No, I’m not from around here, and the last thing I want to do is worry my family. When I’m feeling a little more rested, I’ll give them a call.” The nurse gives me an understanding smile, and I sigh with relief that she’s not going to push me on this. At least not yet. “Okay, Ms. Covington. I understand completely. I’ll just set your purse here, and if you feel up to it, your cell is still inside. Now, I need to answer this page, but if you need anything in the meantime, don’t hesitate to hit the nurses’ call button. You may feel a little drowsy from the pain medication, so for now, try to get some rest.” I watch as she leaves the room before I rest my head on my pillow, replaying the events of the past twenty-four hours. What should’ve been the prelude to one of the best days of my life has turned into a nightmare. Instead of wearing a white wedding dress, I’m stuck in a hospital gown. And even now, my fiancé—or, well, former fiancé—is the last man on my mind. No, instead, I’m thinking about the beautiful man who saved my life. Who once told me that he was beyond saving. The night I met Branson Wellington, he was a mess. A drunken, pitiful, angry mess. This evening, I saw no signs of that man. I saw confidence. I saw arrogance. I saw determination. But I also saw the pain, the anger, the frustration. That broken man is still in there no matter what strides he’s made since that night eight months ago. Tonight, he saved me. And even though he once said that it’s impossible, I’m making it my mission to save him, too.

Release Blitz: Aphrodite's Charms by Julie Kenner


APHRODITE'S CHARMS by Julie Kenner releases today and we couldn't be more thrilled for everyone to get their hands on The Protector Series!



From New York Times, USA Today and international bestselling author Julie Kenner (aka J. Kenner) -- Aphrodite's Charms contains all four full-length novels in the bestselling Protector (Superhero) series of paranormal romances.

This bundle contains the full text of Aphrodite's Kiss, Aphrodite's Passion, Aphrodite's Secret, Aphrodite's Flame (each book is available for purchase individually as well as in this bundle)

Aphrodite's Kiss:

Zoe Smith might look like your average, ordinary elementary school librarian, but she’s about as far from normal as a girl can get. Because Zoe is descended from a line of superheroes... and as her twenty-fifth birthday approaches, she has to decide if she’s going to embrace her heritage (including the X-ray vision and her extraordinary senses) or submit herself for mortalization and be that average, ordinary girl.

Considering how lousy she’s done so far on all the Council-imposed tests, chucking the whole superhero thing might be very best thing... especially when she realizes that sexy, private investigator George Bailey Taylor is convinced that Zoe is one-hundred percent “the girl next-door”.

An ex-cop turned PI, George Bailey Taylor’s had one hell of a life being bounced around from foster home to foster home. All he wants now is a normal life with a normal wife in a normal neighborhood. And when he meets Zoe Smith, he’s certain she’s the typical American girl.

Except she does have an overprotective brother who seems able to appear and disappear at will. And a creepy cousin who’s always lurking about. And why does everyone in her family pretend to actually talk to the pet ferret? With her super powers, Zoe can do just about anything... except make Taylor fall in love with her.

For that, they’re both going to need a different kind of magic...

Aphrodite's Passion:

Mortal Tracy Tannin has always felt like the most ordinary girl in the world, especially since she’s lived her whole life in the shadow of her Hollywood superstar grandmother. But when she finds an antique belt in her grandmother’s attic, everything changes. Suddenly everyone wants Tracy- or maybe they just want the belt.

Superhero Hale is more than happy to do his job protecting mortals. But get emotionally close to one? Absolutely no way. Which is why he’s thrown a bit off his game when he suddenly finds himself craving the mortal woman he’s been assigned to protect. But that must just be the effect of the magical belt he’s supposed to retrieve, right?

Because there’s no way that a guy like Hale can fall for a girl like Tracy.
Or is there?

Aphrodite's Secret:

Shapeshifter Jason Murphy spent six years captive to the most notorious Outcast in the Protector world-Hieronymous Black, who also happens to be Jason’s father. Worse than his is the distrust that his absence put between him and the love of his life, Lane.

Lane knows only that the father of her child disappeared just moments after she told him she was pregnant, and she’s spent the last few years struggling as a single mom. Now Jason’s determined to win back his family.

But to do that, he’s going to have to face his father one last time. And he’s going to have to tell Lane the truth- and hope that this time she’ll see him as a hero.

Aphrodite's Flame:

Mordichai grew up under the shadow of the baddest bad guy out there- Hieronymous Black- and he’s used his power to conjure fire to help Daddy Dearest in numerous nefarious plots. But he’s reformed now- and just in time to meet the woman of his dreams.

Isole Frost believes Mordichai when he says he’s truly reformed. Trouble is, she also believes that Hieronymous truly wants to give up his dark ways and join the good guys.

He may be the man of her dreams, but she’s sure that he’s wrong.And when they’re forced to work together, they’re either going to prove that fire won’t mesh with ice- or that the inevitable result is a whole lotta steam!

Author: C.J. Duggan
Release Date: October 26th
Genre: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


I had plans, big plans, but all that changed the night Bel Evans darkened my doorstep.

Stan Remington is the go-to man. What he doesn’t know about Onslow means one of two things: it doesn’t exist or it hasn’t happened yet.

And when it comes to Onslow, for Stan, being an only child means a guilt-riddled sense of duty to help out at his parents’ caravan park every summer of his life: same old town, same old story.

Until Belinda Evans.

The wild and insipid doctor’s daughter who spends summer holidays with her family at Remington’s Caravan Park, but she’s not Stan’s problem; that is, until she sabotages his planned weekend escape. Now Stan finds himself not only caretaking the caravan park on his own, but responsible for Bel as well.

Just the two of them.
Under the one roof.
For one long, long weekend.

In a world built by mundane routine and small-town boredom, this summer promises to be anything but boring.
