REVIEW - The Wright One - K.A. Linde

TITLE - The Wright One (Wright Love Duet #2)
AUTHOR - K.A. Linde


A new sexy contemporary romance duet from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

Secrets swarm all around.
My world is crumbling under the strain.
I don’t know if we can survive this.
My heart is in the Wright place.
But is his?

The Wright One is the last book in the Wright Love Duet that began in The Wright Love. Find out if Sutton and David survive their world of secrets in the conclusion to the Wright Love duet!

Johnaka's Review:

“Own your feelings, 5 stars”

Wright One is the conclusion of David and Suttons story. It’s a messy type of love story that entails a lot of heartache. This is a hard review to write because I don’t want to give too much away. I just recommend you dive into this duet ready to be destroyed but also know by the end you will be put back together.

Sutton knows she needs to move on from the death of her husband but that’s easier said then done. It’s a uphill battle and every time she takes a step forward someone or something is pushing her three steps back. She knows somethings got to give but she’s young and is honestly still trying to find her voice.

David has been in love with Sutton since he met her. But sometimes love isn’t enough. He thought he could be patient with Sutton as she tries to find her footing, but now he’s starting to second guess everything. Is he holding her back? Is he pushing her too soon? Will his heart be better off with him walking away before she can crush him?

Dive into the Wright One and find out if these two come out on top. I loved the story. It made me feel all the emotions. I wanted to punch Sutton in the face a lot but at the same time I had to remind myself she is young and grieving in the end, she came out stronger than before. David was amazing. He held her hand when she needed it, but he also stood his ground. He knew what he wanted, and he really didn’t waver from that, it was more or less does she want him.

This is the end of the Wright family, or at least it is for now. I’m holding out hope that maybe someday Linde will come back around to this family and write stories for the two cousins we met towards the end of the series. Every member of the Wright family has their own roll and I hope we can find out what these two guys are.

REVIEW - Swallow Me Whole - Gemma James

TITLE - Swallow Me Whole
AUTHOR - Gemma James


Sadie Sawyer wants to learn how to blow a guy. She’s my sister’s best friend. The girl I’ve known since grade school. The girl I’ve always considered off-limits. She’s the girl that crawled under a table in a bar one night and changed everything between us.

Now the brain in my pants is more than willing to step up. The rules are simple.

No kissing.
No screwing.
No falling in love.

But the more I let her use my body in the name of experimentation, the more I know being friends isn’t enough. Is it too much to want it all with her?

The taste of her lips.
The sweetness of her innocence.
The chance to earn her love.

I might have a real shot with her…if her douchebag ex and my past don’t ruin everything.

Swallow Me Whole is a friends-to-lovers standalone romance. Full-length at 77,000 words.

Johnaka's Review:

“A dirty friends to lovers, 5 stars”

Sadie is the ultimate good girl. She’s sweet and pure and everything you really hope your daughter to be as a parent. But like most good girls she doesn’t want to be good, she wants to be bad. Only problem is she can’t get out of her head long enough to do what she wants to do. Sadie is always second guessing herself and letting some of those closest to her walk all over her and telling her that she can’t make up her mind. Except for Ashton and Mandy. They have always been in her corner, but what happens if Ash’s place in her life shifts? Will she be able to deal with the changes?

Ashton has always deeply cared for Sadie but never thought about going after her. She’s too innocent and he doesn’t want to get her dirty with his hands. But what if being dirty is what Sadie craves? When Sadie comes onto him he decides to make his play. Will he be able to convince Sadie the reason it never worked out with anyone else is because they weren’t him?

Ugh, I loved these two. they were on fire. They were like two flames who clashed together and just kept getting bigger and hotter as the story wore on. Even with all the heat there was a solid love behind these two from start to finish, it just grew. I love how Mandy (who is Ash’s sister) was behind them a 100%. My favorite thing about this story is even though Ash wouldn’t be able to give Sadie the life she grew up with (financially) she didn’t care. She just wanted him, and I loved it. Because in the end love is enough. I can totally see myself rereading this sometime.

Genre: Romantic Suspense



About Innocent Target:

From USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus comes the next story in the explosive Redemption Harbor series where sparks fly and so do bullets…

He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…

She was a target. A contract that came across his desk by mistake. Axel was simply going to warn her that she was in danger and get out. Then he got a taste of her and fell hard. But they’re from two different worlds. Not only is she innocent, she’s out of his league. He should keep his distance, but he can’t. Not when someone wants her dead. Now he’s driven to protect her, to keep her safe.

What happens when she discovers who he really is?

Hadley moved to Redemption Harbor for vet school and to be closer to her new family. Now that her billionaire father knows about her existence, her life has changed drastically. She just never imagined that she might be targeted because of her family. And she definitely never imagined she would fall for the one man she should never want. A man who kills for a living. A man who’s obsessed with her. A man who will do anything to protect her from the danger lurking in the shadows.

Innocent Target is the 4th book in the Redemption Harbour series. The book has suspense, action and heat.

Katie started the book off with action. You were brought straight into the situation and didn’t give you a second to be put the book down. Axel puts himself into Hadley’s life to protect her and their relationship forms effortlessly. She her priorities in order, School and building a relationship with her Father and Brother. Having Axel come into her life was not something she anticipated.

Axel is your typical protective Alfa male that has a very sweet side that when given the opportunity, shines. Hadley is fiercely independent, wanting to build her life without the financial support of her new family. She has the confidence to take on everything her life is throwing at her with her head held high.

From the moment that Axel and Hadley came together the heat was turned up to 10. Every encounter between the two left you wanting more, a romance to swoon over. Their chemistry is undeniable, but can they survive when Hadley finds out the truth of how they met and what Axel is doing in her life?

Katie’s writing was seamless, going back and forth between several characters throughout the book, it was easy to follow and I did not want to put the book down at the end of the chapter. Innocent Target kept me on the edge of my seat with suspense and melting from the heat.

I went back to the start and read the first 3 Redemption Harbour books, I knew that all the characters linked together and I didn’t want to miss getting to know each of them. I am so glad that I did, Katie set herself up with a solid series that will not leave you disappointed. Axel and Hadley’s story is by far my favourite and I can’t wait to read what is in store for the rest of the series.

Blog Tour & Review - Unlocking Lies - Kennedy Layne


Secrets and lies have a way of weaving a deadly web. Returning home from his last deployment shouldn’t have been complicated, but Jace Kendall was immediately drawn into a murder investigation that hits a little too close to home. The last thing he should be doing was reigniting old passions that should have been kept buried, but he’s never been a guy who plays by the rules.

Shae has suffered for twelve years without knowing why her sister disappeared. The long-awaited answers are now within reach, and she’ll have no choice but to trust the one man who knows more than he’s telling.

It isn’t long before Jace and Shae are lost in the mystery of solving a case that’s long gone cold. When they find the answers they’ve been looking for, a darkness is unveiled that will leave one of them in the crosshairs of a psychopath.

Their homecoming wasn’t so welcoming. Four brothers and one sister each gave twelve years of their lives to serve their country and fulfill their family’s legacy of service. As each of them return to their home of record, they weren’t prepared for what awaited them—an unforgiveable sin that has been hidden for twelve long years. Secrets and lies are concealed in the dark shadows of the very town they were raised in, and the Kendall family will have no choice but to rely on one another to unravel the sinister evil that they all hold the keys to unlock.

Our Review:

“Will we finally find some answers? 5 stars”

Unlocking Lies is the third book in the Keys to Love series and it does not disappoint. If you’ve read the previous two books you know we are trying to solve a cold case and more and more information keeps coming forward. Someone is trying to insert the Kendall family at every turn, but no one falls for it. It’s definitely a mystery that’s keeping us on our toes.

Jace didn’t expect his homecoming to start the way it did after serving years to his country, but honestly, he should have seen it coming a mile away. What he didn’t expect was for Shae to walk back into his life. Jace much like his brothers upon their homecoming finds something he can’t turn away from, love.

Shae never planned on coming back to her hometown. Especially with the mystery of her sister’s disappearance back in the spot light. But maybe just maybe she can find peace for her sister. What she didn’t expect was to find Jace, the one she used to crush on. Will she finally be able to put her sister to rest or will the killer set their sights on her?

I honestly love this series. Usually in these stories that are synced together like this you can guess who the killer is early on, but not with this series. I have no clue who the killer is just like the town folks and I love it. It keeps me engaged and constantly waiting for the next book. I totally recommend this series.

For nearly a year, they’ve been at war.
Cops. Forks. Eggs.
Two feuding neighbors who couldn’t be more opposite, forced to live next door to one another.
Neither is backing down.

She drives him crazy with her loud nineties rap music.
He gets under her skin the way he obsesses over his stupid lawn.

She fantasizes about having sex with the sexy nerd—but with duct tape over his dumb mouth.
He has dirty dreams of the bombshell beauty where he bangs the crazy right out of her—nightmares of course.
Anger isn’t the only thing heating up between these two.

They think this is a battle only one of them can win…
The growing attraction between them, though, seems to be far more stubborn than the two of them combined.

Read an excerpt from SUNDAYS ARE FOR HANGOVERS

A sexy, sultry, familiar chuckle fills my speakers and I almost wreck my car. Lilith? What the hell?

“Big D, I was busy,” she smarts off.

“Busy with what? Your hair is dripping wet and you don’t have any makeup on. And wait…is that a hickey?” Big D says, clearly amused.

She plays it off with a chuckle. “You say hickey, I say Tinderbite.”

I growl as I think about those fuckers who came on my property looking for her.

“Tinderbite?” Big D questions. “Do I even want to know what that means?”

“It means…” she trails off. “Whatever. Don’t judge, D. Like you haven’t ever been late. Everyone is late. It’s Monday, for crying out loud. I bet half our listeners are late and sitting in traffic on the 295.”

I crawl to a halt, indeed stuck in traffic on the 295.

She continues, “In fact, let’s take some calls. What excuse are you giving your boss this morning for why you were late? Does it beat ‘I-was-trying-to-cover-my-Tinderbite-with-foundation-and-failed-miserably?’”

Big D chuckles. “Okay, Lil, I’ll play your game. Let’s see what our listeners have to say. Call us at 555-732-WXOJ and let us know.”

I dial the number and wait in a queue while a guy named Brandon complains he’s late because his neighbor’s lawn service blocked his driveway and he couldn’t get out. A lady named Gwen tells us about how her son had a blowout with his diaper and she had to bathe him before she could leave.


Answer, dammit.

“This is Big D,” he answers. “You’re on the air. Tell us why you’re late this morning.”

“Hey, I’m Wonka. I’m late because I spent all night exorcising my crazy neighbor’s demons.” I yawn for effect. “It took up a lot of energy and I was exhausted this morning. Although, I could have been a little later to try one more time.”

Big D snorts. “We’re calling it exorcising demons these days. That’s a new one. Thanks for calling in, buddy. We’ll take a new caller—”

“Wait,” Lilith’s voice says. “I need to hear a little more of this story. She sounds like quite the temptation. Definitely worth sinning for.”

Goddamn, she sounds so sultry on the air. My cock is hard.

“She does love red,” I admit. “It looks pretty good on her. She just needs a saint to tame her evil ways.”

She huffs. “I’m not—I’m sure she’s not evil. You sound kind of evil. Big D, he has an evil voice, doesn’t he? Probably does all kinds of crazy crap in his grandma’s basement.”

I cringe because she’s not far off from the truth…

Big D snorts.

“Oh, I’m definitely a saint. This one is as evil as one can get. Would you believe, speaking of Tinder, she sent all her failed Tinder dates to my house. Who does that?”

Big D laughs and Lilith lets out a hiss.

“Sounds like you deserved it, to be honest,” she says. “If I were her, I’d fork your yard just for being a pompous little man.”

“Little?” I choke out. “There is nothing little about me. In fact, she likes to call me Big Willy.” I pause for dramatics. “Like that big killer whale from the 90s movies. Also, she already forked my yard once.” Fuck how that shit pissed me off.

Big D is laughing, but Lilith is riled up.

“Usually, if someone goes as far as to buy fifty boxes of forks, they mean business. Their victim totally deserves it. Not to mention, she sounds quite dedicated. Do you know how long it takes to put over seven thousand forks in someone’s grass? All night, Wonka. All night.”

I laugh. “Well, she definitely has stamina. You’re right about that.”

"Pig,” she says. “Next caller.”

“Actually,” Big D tells her chuckling. “Big boss man is waving behind you to keep talking. Apparently, the listeners are blowing up WXOJ’s Twitter feed. They want to know more about the naughty neighbor from hell.”

“Ughhhhh,” she groans.

“Do you have all day? Because I have so many stories. Would you know she ‘accidentally’ egged my house once?” I question.

“Accidental eggings can so happen!” she argues.

Big D roars with laughter. “And how’s that? Was she on her way to an Easter egg hunt and took a little tumble onto her neighbor’s porch?”

“She probably was. You’re both pigs. Why are you siding with Not-So-Big Willy over here, D? I thought we were besties,” she says, irritation in her tone.

“Aww, girl, you’ll always be my favorite. Tell us more, though, Mr. Wonka.”

“She’s super crazy and obnoxious,” I explain to him. “But she kind of grows on you.”

“She sounds delightful,” Lilith says.

"A real peach,” Big D agrees with a snort.

I hear her slap him and him say, “ow.”

“I have a problem with her,” I tell them, growing serious.

“What?” Lilith asks, hurt in her voice.

“I wanted to ask her out, but she blew out of my house without giving me her number. Even though she’s borderline bananas, I’m quite fond of her cherry lips. What should I do?” I question.

“Awww,” Big D replies. “She sounds sweet.”

“Oh, she’s real sweet,” I agree.

“Anywayyyy,” she draws out, embarrassment in her voice. “Maybe she’ll see him later since they’re neighbors and all.”

“Maybe he can’t wait that long. Maybe he misses her already,” I mutter.

Big D chuckles. “Well, maybe he should do a grand gesture like show up at her work and take her out. I bet she’s real fond of cheap beer and greasy cheese sticks. But, hey, aren’t all chicks that way?”

“Well, I did learn where she works today,” I admit. “It’s a possibility. That would mean leaving work early, though, and I’m already late. I’m not really the kind of guy who lets his job slip to go on dates.”

“Sounds like she might be worth it, though,” Big D says. “Right, Lil? She sounds worth it?”

“Totally worth it. Bye now, Wonka. Good luck with all that. And now we have a song called ‘Creep’ by Radiohead. Seems fitting.”

The connection ends and soon Thom Yorke’s voice fills the line. I’m grinning like an idiot. On the way to work, I plot out a plan to show a wild, colorful, vibrant woman like Lilith Hamilton that I know how to be fun too.

I can be so fun.

Release Blitz & Review - Bought by the Badman - Hayley Faiman

Title: Bought by the Badman
Series: Russian Bratva Series
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 21, 2018

Giovanna Rossi was born an Italian Mafia princess, by blood only. Raised to be nothing more than a toy used to satisfy men’s pleasures. She was always available for a price. She never dreamed to hope for anything other than physical relationships. 

Aidan O’Neil was once an Irish Prince, next in line to his father’s throne. He grew up to despise what his father stood for. After all, he helped bring the Irish king to his knees. His devotions now lie with the newly formed union between his Irish mob and the Russian Bratva. 

An arrangement meant only to release physical tension, turns into so much more—it turns into everything. When a broken prince meets his match in a broken princess, their bond cannot be denied. 

*Recommended for readers 18+ due to Language, Violence, and Sexual Content.


Badmen have never been so hot! Take another lovely stroll through the world of organized crime with a touch of romance. Bought by the Badman has everything you would expect to see in mafia/organized crime book. You have action, shady dealings, jealous counterparts, and then a little romance on the side. This series is one of my favorites.

I was iffy about this plot to begin with. Could I really get behind this story? The answer is yes. While I had reservations about the topic, I fell in love with this story. I think I liked it even more because it was a dip into the Irish side of things instead of staying strictly Russian. We also were able to see many characters from before which was amazing as well.

I fell in love with Giovanna from the very beginning. She is such an amazing and dynamic character. My heart really ached for her so many times that I can’t even count them. Then you have Aidan. He really angered me at times. He is what you would expect from a man really. While he is big and powerful, he was also clueless to the workings of a woman at times. Even with that, I loved him too.

The heat in this book is top notch. All of these books have always showcased the heat in a beautiful and amazing way. These two characters have chemistry and even though they have been with others, it was nice to see the subtle change in how they are together. This part of the book was perfect for me.

I liked the way the author wrote this book. The pace was steady. There was just enough conflict to keep it interesting, but not feel like it was too much. The characters were written really well. I bought into their story and was rooting for them the entire time. The book is easy to read, but does have some pretty tough scenes.

Overall, I really liked this book. It is probably my favorite in the series. These two characters really made me feel for each one of them. I wanted them to have this fairytale ending with the dark and twisty that is organized crime. This was an amazing series and I will probably reread it again in the future.

Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we're raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
