Review: Chasing Harlow by Jay McLean

Chasing Harlow by Jay McLean is LIVE and ready to binge-read. Check out my spoiler-free review below. Chasing Harlow is available to read on Kindle Unlimited. 

Chasing Harlow: https://amzn.to/3zfUBzd


Chasing Harlow Kindle Cover

Blurb:

What started as a bet can only end in heartache.

 Moving to the middle of nowhere right before my senior year wasn’t ideal.

Then again, neither was my brother dying. 

The move was supposed to be a fresh start. 

A new town, a new school, a new mindset. 

Too bad my past indiscretions followed me.

Enter Jace Rivera, the literal boy next door. 

Jace is loved by the town. Admired by his peers. Worshipped by his teammates. 

On the basketball court, he’s a god amongst men.

Off the court, he’s… nothing at all like I expected. 

He’s profound and pure and… devastatingly tortured.

Yet somehow, he offers me light while I offer him hope. 

In the end, we’ll either hurt or heal each other.

There’s no in between. 

“Pain is the price we pay for love,” he once told me.

And a broken heart is the consequence of it.

Spoiler-free Review of Chasing Harlow

Chasing HarlowChasing Harlow by Jay McLean
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jay McLean, what did you do to my heart? I'm still recovering from an emotional sucker punch in the feels. I almost forgot what the power of Jay's words can do to me. I've waited a long time to read a new book from Jay, and she did not disappoint. Chasing Harlow rekindled my heart's muscle memory of Jay's words.  This emotion-packed YA/NA sports romance is not to be missed. JMac is back!

Review: Honey Cut by Sierra Simone

Honey Cut by Sierra Simone by Sierra Simone is LIVE! Check out my spoiler-free review below. This MMF review is HOT!

Honey Cut by Sierra Simone book cover

Blurb: 

I have one job in this arranged marriage, and that’s to seduce my husband.

It should be easy; I’m the heiress to a transatlantic fortune, bred and raised to make a good match.  I’ve spent a lifetime building up my endurance, my discipline, my dedication to my god and my church. The danger lies in falling for the devil who put his ring on my finger—a mistake I made years ago, and can’t afford to make again.

There is one more danger: handsome and green-eyed, emotionally wounded.  Tristan Thomas, former soldier and my new husband’s bodyguard.  A hero who stole my heart with salt-soaked kisses on the sea.

But Lyonesse is not like other places, and this isn’t like other marriages. Soon Tristan, Mark, and I are tangled in a knot of vicious jealousy and gorgeous wickedness, where suspicion is an aphrodisiac and secrets and vows are one and the same.

And there is something far darker at play than my real purpose, than the machinations of the Church I serve.  Darker even than the twisted longings of my own heart. Because my husband has secrets of his own, and the reason he’ll stop at nothing to possess me could slice my soul deeper than the honeysuckle-hilted knife he gave me once upon a time.

Because when it comes to Mark Trevena and his games, the first cut is more than the deepest—it’s the sweetest

And he always leaves you begging for more…



Spoiler-free review of Honey Cut


Honey Cut (Lyonesse, #2)Honey Cut by Sierra Simone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Honey Cut (Lyonesse Book 2) by Sierra Simone is a must-read. This book transcends the four "s's" of romance—smutty, sexy, spicy, and steamy. Honey Cut is much more than just a spicy book. It's a masterpiece where Sierra weaves an intricate web of secret societies, unrequited love, and kink in this MMF romance. This book is lyrical sex dust, tugging at your heart while heating up your Kindle screen. Honey Cut's cliffhanger ending left me begging for more. I highly recommend reading the Lyonesse trilogy in order. You don't want to miss Mark, Tristan, and Isolde's debaucherous backstory in Salt Kiss (Lyonesse Book 1). Read this book in public if you dare. Chef's kiss!

Review of the Cold King of New York

Cold King of New York (The Accardi Twins, #1)Cold King of New York by Siobhan Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Cold King of New York (The Accardi Twins Duet Book # 1) by Siobhan Davis is a gripping, unputdownable read. As a fan of  Siobhan's other mafia books, this one stands out with its badass and super-intelligent female lead, Gia Bianchi. Gia is assigned to work with Don Joshua Accardi, a ruthless alpha hole, for a high-stakes undercover mafia mission. Their budding relationship might endanger them since there's a snitch hiding in plain sight.
Siobhan masterfully weaves a complex web of love, loyalty, murder, and mayhem, making this book a page-turner.  THAT ENDING! I can't wait to start reading Caleb's story in The Cruel King of New York (The Accardi Twins Duet Book # 2), which is out now!

Anastasia

 

If I want to prove to my dad that I can take his place as CEO of our family’s liquor company, I need to show him I won’t let work consume my life the way it did his.


He wants me to be a family woman? I can fake it till I make it.


A fake fiancรฉ is the perfect solution, and the man I’ve found is the ideal candidate.


He’s smart and successful, and he’ll look great on paper as well as on my arm …


Until I realize he’s also my stiff competition.

 

Julian

 

She’s supposed to be a trophy wife. The missing ingredient I needed to toast my success.


I was hoping the ten million reasons I offered in exchange would be enough to get her to agree. But it turns out, she’s got her own reasons for using me.


From the boardroom to the bedroom, this woman has turned my world upside down.


She might be good at faking it, but her beauty and brains have me falling for real.


I’m just getting started, and I’m already drunk on her.

Spoiler-free Review of Drunk on You

Drunk on You (Love & Whiskey #1)Drunk on You by Nikki Ash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm book-buzzed after reading Drunk on You by Nikki Ash. This book is the first installment in the Love & Whiskey series of interconnected standalones. Anastasia and Julian meet through a trophy-wife website and strike a fake engagement deal, each harboring a secret agenda that sets them on a collision course. Their transition from enemies to lovers is electric, and their chemistry is undeniable. However, their career aspirations might pose a significant obstacle. That's all I will say since I don't want to spoil this book for you. I thoroughly enjoyed this sizzling and heartwarming enemies-to-lovers workplace romance and can't wait to read the next book in this series.

Love Hard by Monica James Kindle Crack

Synopsis:

If love is an addiction, your first love is the first hit.
How many of you remember your first love?

Because falling in love for the first time…I remember that. And that’s the thing about your first love—we all have a love story.

But this isn’t a love story.
This is a life story.
The good.
The bad.
The heartache.
It’s all here.

Love is truly a battlefield…

Love is scary, and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. When you love someone wholeheartedly, you leave yourself open to being destroyed…and that’s what I did, what I still do even though I know better.

But it doesn’t make a difference.

The best kind of love doesn’t make sense. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt.

This one-in-a-million story is mine, and if you take anything away from this book, it would be to never be afraid to love.

So, let me introduce myself. You may call me Z.
Buckle up, besties, because this will be a bumpy ride.

Love hits you when you least expect it.

Are you ready for the fall?

Spoiler-free Review:

Love Hard: A MemoirLove Hard: A Memoir by Monica James
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love Hard: A Memoir by Monica James is the first book in Monica’s duet. This book is a love letter to anyone that dated a jackass or five. Z, the main character, dated her share, and this is her story. Z’s love life revolved around her writing and a few men - Mr. J, Bossman, S, Bo, and R. Every woman can relate to Z because we have all dated a few “winners.”
Z takes us on a raw, very real, and heartbreaking journey through her love life. Z is perfectly imperfect and maddening at times. I wanted to hug her and shake her at the same time. There were times my heart broke for Z. She learns that she is the most important person in her life, that she needs to love herself more than these men, and that this is her journey.

“This is so fxxxing personal, but it’s a memoir, so for it to be authentic, I had to pull back the layers, and like an onion, all it’s done is make me cry.”

Monica’s heartfelt and turbulent storytelling will make you feel. She also had me giggling about her foot kink and her Times Square fortune teller. If you read and loved 44 Chapters About Four Men by BB Easton, you will devour Love Hard. I have to say I loved both books!

The next book, Love Harder, will be released in September and will focus on new and old loves. Z loves her friends, and she knows I adore her ;)

Synopsis:

His mere proximity causes my heart to beat wildly in my chest.


When I Had You, an all-new single dad, enemies to lovers, sports romance from New York Times bestselling author S.L. Scott is now available!



Cash Ryatt is a distraction.


It’s no secret the bad boy race car driver has built a reputation from two things. Winning and fu—front-page headlines. I’ve read he’s the best at both, but I have no intention of finding out firsthand.


I have my own plans, and they don’t include making the gossip sites as his next one-night stand. My three older brothers, his bosses, would never stand for it anyway.


So, how did I find myself daydreaming about the one man I’ve been forbidden from dating?

Spoiler-free Review:

When I Had YouWhen I Had You by S.L. Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“When I had you, I had everything.”

Race car driver Cash Ryatt came crashing into Marina Westcott’s life. Cash is a driver for the Westcott Racing team.  The notorious playboy race car driver falls for Marina Westcott, who is part owner of the team and a Hollywood star.  The two hit a few speed bumps and went off the tracks before getting a second chance at love.  I enjoyed this emotion-packed standalone romance. When I Had You by SL Scott is one-click-worthy. 

“You’re not just my soul, Marina. You’re the part of me that didn’t exist before I tasted your kiss. You’re the breath that feeds my lungs that I can’t survive without. You’re more important than my career or any race.”

Meet S.L. Scott:

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, S.L. Scott, writes character driven, heart-raci suspense, and swoony romances that will leave you glued to the page. With stories ranging from witty beach reads to heart wrenching and heart healing, her stories are highly regarded as emotion relatable, and captivating.

Her books are more than escapes for the voracious readers of today. They are journeys of the heart that always come with a happily ever after reward at the end.
