[New Release &Review] SOMEBIDY ELSE'S SKY by Jessica Hawkins

Title: Somebody Else's Sky
Series: Something in the Way #2
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017


If I closed my eyes, I could still see them—all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake’s gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany’s tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly.
A better man would’ve walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I’d keep enough distance. If I’d learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.
Lake was everything I wanted, and nothing I could ever have. I was nobody before I knew her and a criminal after. The way to love her was to let her shine—even if it would be for somebody else.
Book two in the Something in the Way series, an epic, 3-book saga of forbidden love...

She goes back to simpler black & white world of teenagers , Where everything is just wants and needs and got-to-haves. Just love matters and rest of the unnecessary stuff like money, career, parole officers, credit, accountability,college, don't matter !

"What was more important than this fiery, all-consuming love I felt for him? The answer was Nothing !"

*sigh* if only the world was fueled by love .....and only pure love..
Manning has been dreaming of freedom when he's in prison . His life is already destroyed. The stamp of Felon big and bright on his forehead.
Tiffany shows lot of mettle. Rises up to the occassions in her straightforward , cut-to-the-chase attitude, many a times. I'm trying to figure out her motives. The jury is still out......
Lake . The tragic heroine .her heart breaks multiple times. Soundlessly . Wordlessly. But it hurts just the same, if not more. 

"I’m all . . . wrong . . . without you."

It makes Manning's job much harder . He's the soul of the story, holding everybody together. He knows his life is worthless and his dreams of a decent future shattered. At least he can help others

The book is full of love and angst . Your heart will break with Lake, Tiffany and Manning.
Corbin was a sweet reprieve. I so felt for him
The most interesting character was Charles Kaplan. He saw what most didn't , or pretended not to. And he finds a solution where everybody's a winner......sort of
fantastic story. Gave me so many feels and made my heart sob.

[New Release & Review] JUST A LITTLE JUNK by Stylo Fantôme

Title: Just a Little Junk
Author: Stylo Fantôme
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Comedy
Release Date: May 22, 2017


Jodi Morgan is having a bad weekend. 

After partying a little too hard, she wakes up with a monster hangover and almost no recollection of the night before. So imagine her surprise when she looks in her trunk and instead of finding a spare tire, she finds the last guy she'd danced with before blacking out.

Who is he? How did he get in there? How did he die? And oh dear lord, did she kill him!?

When her older brother's best friend offers to help, things start looking up. They've known each other since she was thirteen, and ten years later, he still treats her like a little kid - surely, committing felonies has to trigger some sort of spark. Together, they wind up going on an adventure that takes them all over Los Angeles. From raves to penthouses to strip clubs. All in the search for the answer to her question.

Who is the dead guy in my trunk!?

Warning: This book contains some dark humor, a lot of witty banter, and two characters making more bad decisions than good ones. Also contains adult themes, language, and graphic sexual activity.

Author Bio

Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

What a Weekend, Like the one at Bernie's! 
I've never laughed so hard , or spit out my tea as I did while reading this slapstick dark comedy. 
The situations, the slick one liners, the humour is A class , top notch. Jodi and Archers banter keeps the story alive and running. She's got things exploding around her, bullets zinging past her, all because she got a body in her trunk!
And the sex is oh gawd, panty melting, stars exploding in your eyes, Hot!!
No warning, no working up to it, just bam. Archer Calhoun and his body parts, making themselves at home inside of her.It allowed his dick to reach places inside her even she hadn't known existed. Her eyes rolled so far back in her head, she swore she could look into the past, present, and future. Awesome weekend.
Thoroughly enjoyed laughing my pretty little ass off.
Go read the book, world needs more laughter like this !

100 Proof

100 Proof by Shanora Williams

Release Date: May 18th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

I was the low life.
The screw up.
The hopeless one with no future.
He was the rich guy. The smart one. The one who had it all.
My parents admired everything he did, while I was known for being their greatest disappointment. I didn't follow the path they paved for me.
I drank and partied and did whatever the hell I wanted. The buzz was something I couldn't live without - the fire that filled my veins after each sip always kept me running back for more.
But then I met her, and suddenly the drinks didn't matter. The parties weren't as fun. That fiery buzz came second for once.
I drowned only in her, wanting her more than I wanted to exist.
But even with her, I screwed things up.
Now, he's with the woman I love. And he may have her, but what he should know is that even with all of his money, that nice house, and his expensive cars, her mind, body, and soul will always belong to me.
And I'm not sorry about it, brother, 'cause she was mine first.


Breakfast was supposed to be happening in less than thirty minutes. I couldn’t bail on Vin. He would have taken it personally. I figured filling him in in person would be okay. I wouldn’t even eat with him. I’d let him know what was going on and tell him he should schedule a flight back home as soon as he wanted to. I collected my keys and my clutch before I could process my thoughts, but as I climbed into my car and started it up, driving away from our two-story brick home, I realized I wasn’t doing this for Vin’s benefit. I was doing it for mine. I wanted to see him again. I wanted to know what was really going on with him. I wanted updates on him and Zay. About California, period. I wanted to see if he’d changed at all—or if he was just giving the impression of it to try and win me over again. Not that he could, but he would try. I knew this was stupid. I should have cancelled, like Lloyd said. By going to meet him—alone—I was asking for something to happen. I was secretly hoping to feel a connection again, but in the heat of the moment, I wasn’t exactly sure what that something was. I drove with racing thoughts, wondering what I’d say—what I’d do. Do I hug him when I first see him? Do I shake his hand and pretend to be formal? Do I treat him like my future brother-in-law or as my former love? I had no clue, but, still, I didn’t stop. I kept going until I was pulling into the parking lot of the busy restaurant and parking the car. I didn’t fully breathe as I climbed out, didn’t stop moving as I walked towards the entrance. I didn’t fill my lungs with air until I saw him standing in the waiting area, wearing a navy blue T-shirt that clung to his firm upper body, dark wash jeans sitting low and snug on his hips, and his hair a beautiful, chaotic mess. The veins bulged on his arms, the very ones I used to have no problem tracing with the tip of my tongue. My pulse roared. And then it hit me. This was exactly what I wanted to feel. The electricity between us—the fire that could torch anything that stood in its way. I wanted to witness his smoldering eyes drinking me in, like I was the most beautiful woman in the world. Lloyd had never given me this look. He had never stared for so long, like he would tear my clothes off right where we stood, no matter who was watching. My throat tightened. My core clenched. But I pretended none of it was happening to me as I walked forward to meet him. SBPR-SW-100proof-AN-99cent
