Gent - Harloe Rae

Blurb:
Raven Elliot blasts into town like a wrecking ball—striking and devastating.
With a few simple words, my reliable routine crumbles to dust.

“Is this seat taken?”

I could close my eyes and let her voice wrap around me like a lover’s caress.
But this isn’t that kind of story.
And I’m sure as hell not that kind of man.

She hovers in my space, batting her lashes and smiling shyly.
The glimmer in her sapphire eyes is a promise of peace.
But I’m not falling for it.
And Raven doesn't take the hint.

What starts as a battle of wills, explodes into a turf war. 
She stands directly in my path everywhere I turn. 
No matter how hard I shove, she won’t budge. 
Raven seems dead set on driving me insane.
But I was here first. 
And I’m not going down easy.

After all, no one ever taught me how to treat a lady.

Kamisa's Review:
I got an ARC (luckily, after I saw that cover and read that blurb I could hardly wait...) and went through it in a day. Yes, Trey and Raven were just that amazing. What can I say? I l…

Piece of Work - Staci Hart

Staci Hart - a woman I love and adore, and whose writing I'll probably always devour.  - quote by... me, Sam Destiny
I got Piece of Work as an ARC (I'll admit I was practically begging Staci to give me one anyway...) and read it because... well, she's epic and I knew she was a safe bet when it came to my reading funk. 
Anyway, why don't we start out with the blurb?
Blurb:
Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.

His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.

You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.

But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.

And …

Living Out Loud - Staci Hart

Living Out Loud 
by Staci Hart
Sam's review:
There are books you want to recommend to your friends. You know, those books you read and loved. And then there are books that swallow you whole, that leave you wanting and hurting, that make you feel as if they abandoned you because they ended. You cannot get over how incredible those books are. In fact, you cannot stop thinking about them even as you start a new book. Those are the books other stories pale to in comparison. Those are the books you want to force down someone's throat, make them sit next to you while reading just so you can be sure they read it. Living Out Loud is such a book.

I started this ARC knowing Staci had the ability to crush and break me, but there was a part where I was ready to give up, to give in, because I could not handle Greg's pain. I mean, when does an author ever manage to make you love two characters so much, you rather stop reading than seeing them hurt? That's what she did to me. I messag…

Review - On The Way To Us by Kandi Steiner

Image
I was lucky. Like boy, was I ever lucky. I got an ARC of this and it took me a day and a half to finish it because, let's face it, I did have to work or I'd have done this book in one sitting. Like... Seriously.
The first thing I want to mention is the author note that I loved and consider so important. Since I'm a firm believer in non-spoiling book-reviews I cannot say why, but Kandi Steiner, seriously, thank you. For making that note. For writing that book.
Blurb: 
What makes you happy? That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared. And then, I got in his car. It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it. We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emer…

Review: Revelry by Kandi Steiner

Review Post
You know how sometimes you just get to an author over a lot of extra ways? For me it was L.A. Cotton, who wrote a #KUBedtimeStories. It landed me in a group, and after reading hers, I read Kandi Steiner's (HOLY SHIT, THAT WAS HOT!) and decided I needed to stalk her ALWAYS and FOREVER now. Good decision, too, because that got me the ARC I just finished. (Like literally, ten minutes ago...)
First, look at that cover (and no, I'm so not jealous she has an amazing cover like that...)

Blurb: 
Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

The Chosen (Black Dagger Brotherhood #13) by J.R. Ward

Before I start with my review, I feel as if I should make a big announcement about being back and all that. After all, we haven't been very active when it comes to the reading front, and overall anyway. So I kinda hope to write a few more reviews again over the next months (and hopefully well into net year and so on...) and I want to kick it off with a book that had me 'ugh-ing' so much... :D
