I can see how a person is going to die.
I don't know when and I don't always know who but it's a curse I've had since childhood.
There are people who call what I see a gift but I disagree. After years of trying to ignore the visions that haunt me I'm being told I have to embrace this "gift".

Embracing the nightmares within my own mind is the only way I can save myself... and HIM.

About The Author

I'm a wife, mother, wino, coffee addict and avid a lover of all types of books, but romances are my main favs. My husband likes to say reading is my obsession but I just say it's my passion... there's a difference.

I've been writing since I was a little kid and I finally decided to take the leap and actually publish when Picking up the Pieces came to me. Now that I've been bitten by the writing bug I just can't seem to stop.

Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.
Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she’s willing to give, she falters.
What do you do when something that you’ve known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?
If you’re Mac, you run and hide.
But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?

Review of Connected

Connected (Connections #1)Connected by Kim Karr

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Not even the parade of freaks wearing nut huggers on the beach was going to distract me from finishing Kim Karrs book Connected (Connections). Yesterday, I acquired a suck ass sunburn because I was so into this book ( I'm on vacation in the Dominican Republic). This morning I loaded up with SPF 80 or whatever the bottle promised, found a palm tree that I could read under for a while and paid off my drink server to give me top shelf Patron instead of the shit that I can use to take my nail polish off with. Nothing was going to distract me.

There are books with heavy cliff hangers that have inflicted some I NEED TO READ the next book NOW angst for me like S.C Stephens Effortless, Georgia Cates Beauty From Pain, Gail McHugh's Collide, Rebecca Donovan's Breathing series... you get the picture... now Connections has made my list. Oh my freaking God! This book is high grade Kindle crack!

A Brutal Tenderness (A Terrible Love, #2)A Brutal Tenderness by Marata Eros
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with an arc in exchange for a fair and honest review. Expected publication date:  August 26th.

For two years he has stalked her…
For two years he has blamed her…
                              For two years he has hated her…
Jewell MacLeod’s life was in some serious danger.  She changed her name, appearance and runs away after her best friend Hope is brutally murdered. Jewell spins a web of lies in order to conceal her identity from the psycho killer who wants to get her next. It turns out she is not the only one who is telling lies. Everyone around her has an agenda and Jewell has no idea.

Warning:  Read A Terrible Love (book #1) first. A Brutal Tenderness (A Terrible Love #2) is a companion novel told in Agent “Cas” Steel’s POV.  Hot as hell alpha FBI agent Cas is hell bent on avenging the death of his cousin Hope.  Cas blames her death on her so called best friend Jewell.  After getting to know Jewell he is torn.  She isn’t the spoiled selfish bitch who did nothing as she watched his cousin murdered.    Cas never expected to fall hard and fast for his “live bait”…while on the job to catch a serial killer.

Marata Eros spins a wicked tail of romance and suspense. This tension filled novel takes some great twists and turns through Cas’s eyes… as well as Hope’s killers. I have to say…I was glad I re-read book one first or I might not have truly appreciated Cas’s POV as much as I did.  I found ABT to be a little regurgitated from book one (some of the dialogue and retelling of a story) -- but that was ok with me since I LOVED book one. Cas’s POV was great. I loved getting to dig deep into the steamy recesses of his alpha male/bad boy brain. The writer did a great job unraveling the back story. If you loved A Terrible Love and Cas…then you will love getting more Cas in A Brutal Tenderness. 3.75 – 4 Cas-stars.

Just Reviewed: Fire Inside By Kirsten Ashley

Fire Inside (Chaos, #2)Fire Inside by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just popped my Kristen Ashley cherry! I devoured my first book by KA and all I have to say is I totally get the hype. I understand why there are so many online fan pages devoted to her books and “support groups” for readers to discuss what they just read. So after all hearing all of the hype for so long I jumped at the chance to read an arc for her upcoming release Fire Inside (A Chaos Novel). I was told that there was a book one in the Chaos series but book two would be fine as a standalone. It was more than fine….it stood strong on its own two Harley Davidson wheels.

Lanie Herron comes from a country club existence in Connecticut but is no stranger to biker life with the Chaos motorcycle club. Hopper “Hop” Kincaid has known Lanie for years from hanging around the club. Hop is 110% alpha male with all of the trappings of a hot biker rolled up into one. Hop has the ability to melt your panties, break your heart or just go crazy ass caveman all within five minutes. He always thought Lanie was gorgeous but was not his type since she was a “lady” – a lady wrapped in head to designer clothes and full of drama. One night while hanging out at a Chaos social event Lanie approaches Hop and asks him for one night of stand of no strings attached bumpin uglies. Well… one night turned into one heck of a dirty sexy complicated hell on wheels chaos fueled relationship. Hop wants more. Lanie says less…so let the games begin.

It’s 1:40 am and I don't think I will sleep until I pick out which Kristen Ashley book to read next. Some might say - bikers? Not for me. Rethink this people. Next time I see a hot guy wearing his club cut on the back of a fat boy smiling at me (and we have quite a few bikers around here) I will definitely smile back and wonder if they are half as crazy effing bad ass as Hop and the brothers of Chaos. What a nice story break from billionaires, CEOs and wayward virgins. Big love for Kristen Ashley. Five hell on wheels stars!

All Time Best Kindle Crack - Review of The Groupie Series, Mogul & Rock Star by Ginger Voight

Mogul (Groupie, #3)Mogul by Ginger Voight
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cue song...Dokken - Alone Again Without You...Now read....
HOW?...WHY?...did I ever let this book/series sit on my TBR list (smacking myself upside my head). Hands down Ginger Voights Groupie trilogy (Groupie, Rockstar and Mogul) is one of my all-time favorite rock star romance reads EVER. I read...or should I say devoured all three books in a few days. I haven’t been so in love with a series since SC Stephens Thoughtless series. I am in no way comparing the two...except for my love of both (and the rock star love triangle drama dynamic). Be prepared for a hardcore emotional roller coaster ride filled with betrayal, heartbreak and redemption with Vanni, Andy and a few others who become emotional road kill on tour with the band. Vanni is a HOT love STARVED man whore, pt-time uber douche and prick on the brink of fame... Andy is a young, downtown-to-earth Tennessee based travel/entertainment writer. Andy is your average girl...and not your typical stick thin knock out rocker chick love interest.

This series wasn't pretty...Voight got down and dirty into the bowels of the entertainment business. I held my breath half the time as I scrambled from one angst filled page to the next. The trilogy captured the highs of their drug addiction like love for each other... and their anguish filled downward spiral. Each one the three books made me want hug or drop kick Vanni, Andy and Graham (who you will read about). I felt like my heart was filleted as my stomach turned to the beat of this EPIC rock and roll soap opera. Their chemistry was smoldering...but not in a smutastick way. I love my smut books.... and this series had a lot of steam...but wasn’t over the top. Voight’s Groupie series is brilliant and sucked me in from page one... it was raw and very real...with fans, stalkers, fame and fortune. I could see this series turning into one hell of a movie. Big love for Ginger Voight...this woman can write and she sure as hell can tell a good love story. This series is Kindle Crack for romance, bad boy, rock God loving readers like me. Rock on....and read this series NOW! ... Cue song -  The Verve Bitter Sweet Symphony. The end…

Romance Book Review & Giveaway for Love Me Back by Michelle Lynn

TITLE – Love Me Back
AUTHOR – Michelle Lynn
GENRE – New Adult Romance
HOSTED BY – Love Between the Sheets

Growing up in small town Belcrest, Maddy Jennings thought she was destined to be with her childhood love Trent Basso. Their friendship blossomed into love as they weaved in and out of each other’s lives, from school aged to young adulthood. During her complicated path with Trent, another love interest seems to be her constant. The problem is the other love interest is Trent’s older brother. Trent’s brother is bound to keep a promise to him even if it means keeping his distance from Maddy, but it doesn’t stop him from being a friend she can count on.

When Maddy returns to her hometown after two years for her brother’s wedding, she will have to face not only Trent but his brother as well. As the two Basso brothers fight to win her heart, she struggles to forgive her mom and accept her apology, in order to mend their relationship?

She must decide to either forfeit her happiness or tear a family apart.

My Review:

Maddy Jennings goes home for her brother’s wedding and things won’t ever be the same.
I really liked Love Me Back by Michelle Lynn. This was one heck of a love triangle. I think I need to go to my Cardiologist since my heart is still suffering from emotional whiplash. LMB is told via Maddy’s POV and shuffles between the past and present. Maddy is indecisive and always trying to do the right thing…even if it’s not really the right thing for her. LMB is so well written and really pulled on my heartstrings. I enjoyed the way Michelle Lynn took her time and really developed the characters, relationships, and history. I will say there were times I wanted to drop kick Maddy for some of the choices she made. Ugh…some of her angst-filled decision making was killing me. All in all, I would recommend Love Me Back - especially if you enjoy love triangles….this is it!! I would recommend this emotion-packed love story. Four love triangle filled stars!

Naked (The Blackstone Affair, #1)Naked by Raine Miller

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

Wow…effing wow… I just devoured Raine Miller’s Naked (The Blackstone Affair Part 1) in one sitting. The house could have been on fire…I would have grabbed my Kindle and then called 911. Naked is scorching hot fast paced read. Total Bookgasm.
Ethan meets Brynee at a UK art gallery opening where her nude portrait is being showcased. Brynee is an American grad student and part-time model that left home to escape a horrible situation. Ethan, is a smoking hot (think David Gandy), successful British company owner who could easily talk the panties off any women who crosses his path. Ethan pursues Brynee like a stalker freak in heat and happens to be very dominant in every which way you could imagine... He also happens to be just as caring as he is controlling. Ethan and Brynee have some supersized secrets that will either make or break their relationship if they can heal, reveal and move on from their scared pasts.
I have to say that Ethan and Brynee’s nuclear mutual attraction creates a whole lot a smutastic fun…and a great story! Naked unravels like a sweet hybrid mix of The Crossfire Series and the Fifty Shades books. Without a doubt, I would say pick up this novella. Yes, there is a cliffy…but have no fear All In (book 2) is out…and Eyes Wide Open (book 3) will be released on May 14th. Plan on reading all three….you won’t want to put this series down.

All Time Best Kindle Crack - Review of Mile High by R.K. Lilley

Mile High (Up In The Air, #2)Mile High by R.K. Lilley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Cockpit....I could never look into the front of any flying death bus in the sky since I was in an emergency plane crash landing. It kind of scared me for life... leaving me with the inability to read books, watch TV shows or movies that have some type of airplane plot in Lost, Cast Away, Snakes on a Plane -- you get it. I put off reading the Up in the Air series by R.K. Lilley because of my plane issue. Well...I got the hell over it after scoring a first class ticket with Mr. James Canvendish. In book one of this fast paced smutastic book/trilogy we are introduced to Bianca, her best friend Stephen and James. Bianca is a young, gorgeous flight attendant with her own mental carry-on bags full of issues. While at work, she who catches the eye of first class passenger James Cavandish. James is a young, super effing hot, wealthy, man-whore who is deeply involved in the BDSM lifestyle. James sets his sights on dominating Bianca - who happens to be a virgin. Bianca and James end up falling for each other in their own special banged up way. I'm going to remain spoiler free here....and just say they have to overcome many emotional obstacles before their relationship crashes and burns on a runway.

If you devoured 50 Shades or the This Man will want to check this super HOT read. I'm on book three now. I have to say I like this series way more than 50 Shades...just for the writing style alone. This is one hell of a steamy page turner...This is Kindle Crack.

All Time Best Kindle Crack - Review of Fear of Falling by S.L. Jennings

Fear of FallingFear of Falling by S.L. Jennings

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“This is what you deserve, Kamilla, You’re a dirty filthy whore. And whores need to be beaten. You make me do this to you. You make me hurt you. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t love you.”

Kami’s childhood was a living hell. Her days are filled with fear…her dreams are littered with hate and despair. She is damaged...she is broken. Kami does her best to keep it together with the help of her two best friends – Angel and Dom. Every day is a struggle for her and she is no stranger to numbing her anxiety filled existence with booze. Kami had her share of hook-ups and one night stands and never allowed any relationship to develop into anything series. She didn’t feel that she was able to be in a relationship since she carried around more emotional baggage than a luggage factory. Kami believed that any man that scratch the surface of what she held inside would run for his life. Then she meets Blaine. For the first time ever Kami feels something in addition to fear...she feels something real with Blaine after sharing one hell of tequila soaked body shot. One man tore Kami’s world apart. Now another man wants to break down the emotional fortress that formed around her heart and just love and protect her. Will Kami’s fears and violent past allow her to let Blaine in?

“There was too much…there. I don’t know what is was that crackled between us, but it was there. And it was confusing the hell out of me.”

Blaine is a scary-beautiful bartender covered in tattoos and some well-placed piercings. Blaine, who has own emotional baggage falls for Kami in a big way. Blaine and Kami’s story unravels so smoothly from alternating points of view.

“He represented something that I could never have: a serious relationship, companionship, trust…love. I had to keep reminding myself of that fact.”

S.L. Jennings Fear of Falling is truly an emotional journey into the heart of a survivor. Pack your bags for one hell of an emotional roller coaster ride that will haunt you. This isn’t your hearts and flowers romance. Be prepared to be exposed to a story filled with heartache, love, violence, lust, stress, fear and happiness. FoF is one of those stories that will stay with you long after you close your Kindle cover.

While this story was gut wrenching at times…I did find myself laughing from the dialogue between Angel, Kami and Dom. Before I die I will call someone a “cum dumpster”. While there is drama…there is also a sweet steam factor. Blaine and Kami’s chemistry is there…in a big way. Oh Blaine….what a rock star. He might be my new book boyfriend. This book is not to be missed. FIVE haunting stars! No cliffhanger.

+++LOVED S.L. Jennings book references+++ Kami and I have the same taste in books ; )

Can you please increase the number of stars in your rating system? I know I am not the only reader on here that would like to be able to give certain books 10 stars. So when I sit down to write a review of Katy Evans first book Real, I would like to be able to show my love for this book and its writer. I don’t know if my review writing skills could do this book justice...but adding extra stars would help. I’m sure you guys at Goodreads are real busy…so I’ll try and help this process along. I have 10 stars to send to you. Can you add them to my review of Real?

Thank you.

PS – Could you also offer had a book hangover rating? Or how about a time stamp function to show what time readers were up to in the middle of the night because a book was SO DAM GOOD

#1 New York Times bestseller

Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies...

That's what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she's never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past she wishes could just stay buried.

Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he's nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn't at all who he's been claiming to be. When the secrets he's been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky's life will change forever.

Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

"If words could break souls, my words just broke his in two."

"Fuck all the firsts, Sky. The only thing that matters to me with you are the forevers."

Put down whatever you are reading now...and read Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. If Hopeless doesn't top the charts on the NYT/Amazon bestsellers lists then I might go as far as to go on strike and stop reading... because this book is IT!!!!! It was that good. I couldn't possibly write a review about Hopeless or Colleen Hoover's brilliant writing or storytelling abilities that would do justice. She blew me away with Slammed and Point of Retreat. So I set the bar pretty high with Hopeless. She blew that bar (that doesn't sound so good does it ;) but she truly did. This is the kind of book that will stay with me forever. It's raw, real and a complete emotional roller coaster/mind fuck and a half. I will remain spoiler-free here and just say that Sky and Holders' story will blow you away. As their story unravels into your and head and heart. Fans of Hoover's Slammed series, Rebecca Donovan's Breathing series, Jamie McGuire's Beautiful Disaster or Nicole Williams Crash series will LOVE. Stop reading this review and buy this book now!

Rating - All the stars on Sky's ceiling. Enjoy!

All Time Best Kindle Crack: Review of This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas

This Man (This Man, #1)This Man by Jodi Ellen Malpas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Move over Christian Grey and step to the side Gideon Cross there is a new man in town... Jesse Ward is a domineering, self-destructive beautiful disaster. He falls hard for attractive interior designer Ava O’Shea and will do anything to have her.  Their relationship is nothing short of a Tsunami. She jumps into this relationship of uber dysfunction as she desperately tries to unravel this hot mess of a man.  Their sexual escapades are vividly described without Jodi Ellen Malpas skipping a beat.  Ava and Jessie have all kinds of crazy sex... hot, slow, hard, ummm...senseless, sleepy (you will understand after your read this book). They fight and fuck more than humanly possible. Loving bat shit crazy Jesse is a bitter twisted adventure for Ava...where Jesse is the God of “Jesseland” and determined to control every aspect her life (and shield her from his).
Jessie's skeletons and sordid tales of vaginas past start to slowly start surface as Ava learns that Jesse owns high-end hotel/swingers club where he is also member.  She is in love and desperate to learn why he is a jealous controlling train wreck.   Poor Ava --- Getting Jessie to open up about himself and his past is about as painful as watching a dental patient receiving root canal without Novocain.
I loved both books!!!! I will say the fighting and dysfunctional sex gets a tiny bit stale at times but Jodi Ellen Malpas is an incredible story teller.  This isn’t your momma’s 50 Shades…This Man & Beneath This Man are both effing Smuttaskic books! Jeese is a whackadoo with a heart of gold and I couldn’t help but love him in the end. The next book can’t come out fast enough. When when when?
Fans of the 50 Shades series and Bared to You series will devour This Man and Beneath This Man.

All Time Best Kindle Crack - Review of Beneath The Burn by Pam Godwin

Beneath the BurnBeneath the Burn by Pam Godwin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.  Expected publication:  August 1, 2013

Charlee and Jay are two lost souls burned by life.  Their worlds collide and life as they know it will never be the same ever again.
Charlee’s father is a huge loser on so many levels.  He used his daughter as collateral to cover his gambling bets.  He lost his daughter and his own life to Roy.  At sixteen, Charlee is held hostage by a sadistic fuck named Roy…who happens to be an international business owner with a bank account to rival that of Bill Gates. She is forced to live her days chained up and sexually assaulted by Roy in his demented prison penthouse of horrors. Charlee does whatever she has to do to survive.  She creates her own invisible armor to block out her life with Roy.  Charlee gets a bitter sweet taste of freedom but is enslaved by her own demons and never free from him.

Jay is the tormented lead singer of the rock band – The Burn.  Everyday life is a struggle for the beautiful rock god. He is mentally held hostage by horrific childhood memories. Jay’s demons cause him to be repulsed by a strangers touch and ignite deep seeded panic and depression.  His horrific flashbacks antagonize his mind, body and soul.  He numbs his pain through playing his music, drug abuse and mindless sex with groupie sluts. Jay is damaged to the core - never allowing anyone or anything to touch him…to see the real him. One night after a show he walks into a tattoo parlor and allows a beautiful tattoo artist (who happens to be Charlee) to create a veil to cover up his physical scars.  Charlee’s art and her words pierce his heart and he longs to be freed as an emotional hostage to his twisted past.

“How had Jay survived his pain?  If he were hanging in the irons, what would he have done to guard his mind from splintering apart?  How resilient he must’ve been to carry the weight of so many wounds.  She wanted to borrow his strength, imagined it plated over her skin.”

A chance meeting in another time and place once again causes their paths collide.

“She has a memory of a man with a back full of scars.  Beneath the superficial damage was a devotion to survival, as instinct to dominate his future.  Most probably didn’t see that when they looked at him, but she hadn’t just recognized it, she’d felt it and wanted it.”
I don’t want to give away anything about this story.  I hate the word “epic”…but it’s the only way to describe this story….it’s fucking epic.  BtB is the ultimate emotional roller coaster ride of survival and second chances.    I recommend checking out the author’s content warning.  This gut wrenching story is not for everyone and not easily digestible.  It took me to this uncomfortable place and dangled me there to take it in. This story is so emotional and so well written that it will leave you captivated from the first page to the last. This isn’t a pretty hearts and flowers erotic tale of love…this ain’t your mamas 50 Shades of Grey kind of book ;) – so I wouldn’t loop in the same genre because of BDSM factor.

I don’t know where Pam Godwin came from…but I’m sure glad I found her and this book. Her character development is off the charts.  The way she crafted this dark and twisted story to unravel is breath taking and will make you cringe.  BtB is so incredibility raw… fucked up and is one hell of a hard core page turner. FIVE++ BURNING STARS.

Just Reviewed - I Surrender by Monica James

I Surrender (I Surrender, #1)I Surrender by Monica James

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ava picks up and leaves everything – college, family and friends to follow her boyfriend to live in Singapore. Then he breaks up with her in a karaoke bar (such a huge dbag!) Ava is completely devastated from the breakup and returns home to LA and moves in with her best friend V. V. drags her track wreck of a best friend out on the town to meet her boyfriend who happens to be in a popular local band. She meets V’s boyfriends' bandmate--Jasper. They have the whole insta-chemistry thing going on. Ava and Jasper decide they can only be friends since she is still nursing a broken heart from her break up with the overseas dbag. Then there is the issue of Jasper’s girlfriend! She learns that he is in an on/off again relationship with some blonde bimbo. Finally, timing is right for the two friends to make a go at a real relationship. Ava emotionally sabotages herself and ends up pushing Jasper away. Their relationship is peppered with a lot of miscommunication related drama and trust issues. She is terrified to about having to have her heart broken again. Jasper has his own set of emotional baggage he is dealing with. Will she finally allow herself to love and trust again? Will Jasper figure out how to be in a “real” relationship? Will he stop kissing his ex? That’s just the start.

I loved the way this story developed. I felt like I was in Ava's head and heart as the story unfolded. Yes, there were times I want to drop kick her when she was in self-destruct mode. Arghhhh…She reminded me a lot of Kiera from SC. Stephens Thoughtless series. What is there not to like about Jasper…he’s hot, plays in a band, has cerulean blue eyes and works in an animal shelter! I loved that he was a straight shooter most of the time...except for some of his douchey behavior with his ex-girlfriend. I am hooked on this series. There is a cliff hanger. I Surrender....Monica James!!! I'm begging for book two.

Just Reviewed- Review of Raising Ryann by Alyssa Rae Taylor

Raising Ryann (Bad Boy Reformed, #1)Raising Ryann by Alyssa Rae Taylor

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 stars!!! Arc provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Review to follow:)

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. This review is spoiler free. Four stars.

First time author Alyssa Rae Taylor did a great job building up the steam, suspense…and a following for her book Raising Ryann. She has been writing and releasing this sexy story on WattPad in bits and pieces.

Reese Johnson’s childhood memories are anything but special. Her drunken father beats on her and her mom. After her parents separate Reese faces more drama when one of her mom’s sleazy boyfriends attempts to rape her. She is saved by a neighbor who hears her screams for help. Fast forward years later… Reese is a hardworking, strong woman determined to make it on her own. She is enrolled in college and working two jobs to support herself. One day this hot as hell tattooed muscle head shows up to work alongside her at her job at the gym. Reese is attracted to him…but can’t stand his cocky demeanor. She realizes her hot new coworker is the boy her saved her years ago. Luke Ryann left his sky rocketing career as an MMA fighter. He is burnt out of the whole lifestyle – travel, sluts and partying. He decided to take a job teaching self-defense in his foster parents gym back at home in Arizona. He knows he will be working alongside of the little girl he saved from being attacked long ago. Luke wonders if she will remember him since he looks so different. She’s still a little girl….right? Reese slowly learns that Luke has his own emotional baggage he is dealing with. Sparks fly and he fights his growing attraction and his growing hard on for Reese. Will his past get in the way of any chance at a future? Is Luke Ryann who he says he really is?

If you are looking for a solid YA/Coming of Age book (with a “NC-17” movie rating) this is it. There is steam factor thing going on….but it doesn’t progress into your typical MMA-fighter style alpha male “get a room/cage/mat” wild sex. Alyssa Rae Taylor does a fantastic job with the chemistry build up between the young couple. I have to say….the first 50% of the book moved a little bit slow for me….but the last 50% made up for it with character development, plot and relationship drama all coming together at a rapid pace. Then BANG… it all comes to a screeching halt with the mother of all cliff hangers and I felt like I took one of Luke’s MMA punches to my heart. I need book 2 – Bad Boy Reformed. This is some amazing YA Kindle Crack. Existing Wattpad readers/fans of Raising Ryann are also going to LOVE the way this story is crafted.

Smuttastic Reviews Review of Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen) by Lisa Renee Jones

Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen, #1)Escaping Reality by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Everything about Amy is a lie. She is hiding in plain site from someone dangerous from her past. Amy is on the run... and literally has to hop a flight with the clothes on her back and nothing else. She has "handler" that provides her with real time escape plans and credentials that she must follow.

Amy ends up sitting next to Liam en route to her next destination. Sparks fly and they have insta-chemistry. Liam is a well-known architect and wealthy as can be. Liam is the quintessential “Mr. Tall, Dark and Potentially Dangerous” billionaire. He steam rolls his way into her life and ends up pretty obsessed with everything about her. Amy meets Jared, her new neighbor. He is also smitten with Amy. Amy has a lot of questions about the two new men in her life…not to mention her new boss. Why is Amy running? What happened in her past? Who is this handler? Is Liam or Jared the real bad guy? Ok…so you have questions…so do I…so does Amy.

Lisa Renee Jones latest book Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen, #1) is such a puzzle…that I can’t wait to solve. This fast paced book is loaded with steam and suspense. I absolutely loved the way book one played out. Yes, there is a hardcore cliffhanger…which is a little painful. I can’t wait to get my hands on book two (please be soon). Four smutastic mystery filled stars!

Goodreads -

Sex. Who really knows sex? I mean, we've all had sex, great sex even but when you get down to the details, how many of us actually see sex for the raw, primal act that it is?

I thought I knew sex. I've had sex. Heck, I've felt lust. Once, I've even felt love. I thought I knew exactly what sex was.

Until I met Cade.

He's the meaning of sex.

He's a biker.

He's dangerous.

He's powerful.

He's dominant.

He wants me.

My world is about to change, for the better? I don't know. But here's my story, I hope you're ready for it because it's not the beautiful, heart wrenching story most people have to tell. It's passionate, forbidden, morally incorrect and downright, fucking beautiful.
