~**~ ARC Review: Act Your Age by Eve Dangerfield ~**~

***4 ‘Who Am I?’ Stars***
The very first line of the synopsis had me going “This IS totally my kind of book.” Then I read the rest of it and the grabby hands started happening and I have to say that I really enjoyed Act Your Age. It was all kinds of smexy and titilating, and will warn that it will push some outside their comfort zone, but I was absolutely fascinated by why the characters were drawn to Daddy/Little play and how, once diving in feet first, it would affect and change them as things progressed and wasn’t disappointed at all in how things ended up.
Tyler and Kate both fascinated and frustrated me in equal measure, and yet I really liked them both. Tyler is most definitely a grump when we first meet him, but the man has his reasons. Not only has he had to tamp down his natural urges, he’s had a rough go of it in his personal life and can’t seem to (doesn’t want to) shake himself out of it. But underneath all the walls and denial, is a man who can and wants to care, but doesn’…

~**~ ARC Review: Too Beautiful to Break (Romancing the Clarksons #4) by Tessa Bailey ~**~

***4 ‘You’re the Tide’ Stars***
I must admit that Belmont and Sage have been the two characters that intrigued me the most throughout the series because their relationship is so tense and...unique. With each book I made note of anything that could give me a clue into what was going on  with them, but no solid answers were given. So, yes, I was all kinds of excited to get my hands on Too Beautiful to Break to FINALLY get some answers, and for them to FINALLY get their HEA, and what a ride it was. I wasn’t prepared for what was revealed, but it totally worked, especially when you look at just who Sage and Belmont are, and I loved experiencing each step in the evolution of not only their relationship, but themselves as individuals.

I’ve really liked Belmont and Sage throughout the series, but it was more in the context of their unique relationship rather than as individuals, so finally learning about who they are separately from each other was an enjoyable, though heartbreaking, journey. T…

~**~ ARC Review: Legs (One Wild Wish #1) by Kelly Siskind ~**~

***4.5 ‘I’ll Untie You’ Stars***
I’m not too sure what I enjoyed the most with this one...Rachel and Jimmy’s journey to their HEA or all of the wine speak going on? I think it’s a pretty even toss up because wine is my go to libation and I love a good romcom and Leg’s definitely hit all the high points. This was a fun, quick, smexy read with just the right amount of angst and a lot of heart filled with characters I became invested in and wanted to keep reading about even after there were no more words to read.
I really liked Jimmy and Rachel, but boy did they take me on a ride. They both have incidents from their past that have cut them deep and molded them into who they are today. Jimmy has found himself and rolled with it, but still holds on to the anger that was the catalyst for his liberation. But despite the anger, his is an honorable, determined and smexy man with a good heart underneath it all. Rachel, on the other had, has taken what happened to her and kept herself on the very …

~**~ ARC Review: Exes with Benefits by Nicole Williams ~**~

***4 Stars***

I knew going into this book that it would be one of those that would give me a lovely case of whiplash and or sore eyes from all the rolling and I was spot on. Canaan and Maggie’s second chance romance did a number on me in the frustration/irritation department, but mixed in with that was a lot of heart and sweetness and my curiosity as what it would take for Maggie to crack kept me turning the pages until the very end.

Canaan and Maggie took me on a roller coaster of a ride with their journey. I didn’t necessarily flip flop over whose team I was on because they both contributed to the demise of their marriage as well as their five year separation. I was equally on both teams because what I saw were two people who were still in love with each other and needed to confront and come clean about what tore them apart the first time and see if they could work past it. It was a long and somewhat frustrating road and yet satisfying as they both finally give each other what they’ve…

~**~ ARC Review: Caged by Clarissa Wild ~**~

***4.5 ‘My Dirty Beast’ Stars***
Yes, I read the description. Yes, I knew that I’d be taken on a hell of a mindfuck (I mean this is Clarissa Wild we are talking about.) But Damn. I mean talk about having push my reality to the side of a few hours and just accept everything that was thrown at me. Which isn’t easy especially when I had conversations in my head about what true innocence was and what makes someone innocent. And then there was the debate over nature vs. nurture and the line between right and wrong (Yes, my inner geek came out to play. Big Time) Heavy thoughts, I know, my brain is exhausted, but that’s what was swirling around in my head even as I was totally fascinated with what was going on with Ella and Cage and just the situation they were thrust into. It’s all kinds of dark, sweet, smexy and smutty and the insta is extreme, but even with all of that there’s heart mixed into it and it falls into that category of ‘it is what it is’ and it kept me turning the pages til the ver…

~**~ ARC Review Bound by Vengeance (Ravage MC Bound #3) by Ryan Michele ~**~

***5 ‘All In’ Stars***

After devouring Bound by Desire I had two reactions:

1) I absolutely-fucking-lutely ADORED. Deke and Riley! 2) I NEEDED to know what Austyn would do in the aftermath of the horrific crazyness she went through and what Ryker would do to get her to welcome him into her heart.

So, you can imagine how happy I was that their book would be up next and I must say that I absolutely loved everything about Bound by Vengeance. From Austyn and Ryker’s journey to their HEA to how the Vengeance was attained and meted out, it was practically perfect and had just the right blend of humor, heart and heat throughout the entire story, as well some great moments with the Ravage MC.

Austyn. She went through hell and yet she has come out of that experience with the determination to live and do it on her own terms. This doesn't mean that she is whole, in fact there are many pieces that are still broken, but she isn't about to let them, or him, win...at least when it comes to certai…
