BEFORE YOU by Jenna Bennett
BOOK SUMMARY:
It’s all fun and games

I had a simple plan for spring break.

Sun, sand, and a hot guy. Sex on the beach, with no strings attached.

A chance to get rid of this pesky virginity once and for all.

And when I met Tyler McKenna, I thought I had it made.

Until someone gets hurt

But then girls started turning up at Key West landmarks. Girls who looked like me, but with one crucial difference: They’d all been drugged and relieved of their virginity.

The virginity I still have. The virginity Ty refuses to take.

And now I’ve begun to wonder whether there isn’t more to him than meets the eye.

Suddenly, sex on the beach doesn’t sound so good anymore...



BETWEEN US by Jen McLaughlin
BOOK SUMMARY:
I’m just a girl…
I’m a famous country star who’s spent her life cultivating a good girl persona to avoid bad press, but I’ve reached my limit. I’m going away for spring break with my two best friends from college, and we’ve vowed to spend the vacation seeking out fun in the sun—along with some hot, no-strings-attached sex. The only thing I needed was the perfect guy, and then I met Austin Murphy. He might be totally wrong for me, but the tattooed bad boy is hard to resist. When I’m in his arms, everything just feels right.

And I’m just a guy…
I’m just a bartender who lives in Key West, stuck in an endless cycle of boredom. But then Mackenzie Forbes, America’s Sweetheart herself, comes up to me and looks at me with those bright green eyes…and everything changes. She acts like she’s just a normal girl and I’m just a normal guy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My past isn’t pretty, you know. I did what I had to do to survive, and she’d run if she learned the truth about my darkness. But with her, I’m finally realizing what it’s like to be alive. To laugh, live, and be happy.

All good things must come to an end...


BEYOND ME by Jennifer Probst
BOOK SUMMARY:
CAN FUN IN THE SUN TURN INTO LASTING LOVE?
Spring break in Key West with my besties was supposed to be casual fun. But I never expected to meet James Hunt. Sex and frolic? Yes! A relationship? No. But his hot blue eyes and confident manner drew me in. And when he let me see the man behind the mask, I fell hard, foolishly believing there could be a future for us. Of course I never considered our relationship might be based on lies...or that his betrayal could rock my foundation and make me question everything I believed in...   

OR WILL A LIFE BUILT ON LIES RUIN EVERYTHING?
The moment I saw Quinn I knew I had to have her. She hooked me with her cool eyes and don’t touch me attitude. I had it all, money, social status, and looks. I could get any girl I wanted...until her. When my friends challenged me with a bet to get her into bed by the end of the week, I couldn’t pass it up. But sex wasn’t supposed to turn into love. She wasn’t supposed to change me, push me, and make me want more for myself. She wasn’t supposed to wreck me in all ways. And now, if I can’t turn my lies into truth, I just might lose her forever...

With You by Nashoda Rose



Eeeeek!
*Sigh*
^Gasp^
{Heart}

WHAT.JUST.HAPPENED?

No. Seriously.
I think I just ate my tongue!


Nashoda, you naughty little minx.
Yea…you know what I’m talking about.

 
That ending.
Oh my!!!


So…we’ve got Emily.
Cute, sweet little Emily, who’s ran into some recent trouble, and wants something specific.

A fighter.
But not just any fighter.
She wants Sculpt.
But not exactly for reasons you’d think initially.

 

Sculpt, is an illegal fighter.
SUPER sketchy past.
We’re all loving him already, right?!?

 

After Emily approaches him and he finds out what she wants, he goes with her.
Not entirely willingly from the get go, but he comes around, and their relationship blooms.

 
Then BAM!
*Bleep* hits the fan and we’re all OMG, what is happening, and then we’re OMG, did that really just happen?  Did I really just read that correctly?!?!

 
Oh yea…by the end you’re going to be yelling -

Eek!
Blam.
Boom!

 

Why?  Because it’s a MAJOR cliffhanger and you’re left going WHAT THE FREAK JUST HAPPENED…??

*GULP*
 
Lots of action in this novella!

5 Stars for me.

Now I’m off to read – Torn from You!!

Um.  Yea.
That's awesome.
With You AND Torn from You combo pack - Yes; Please!


After Forever by Jasinda Wilder


 
Uggggh - I love this book!
I was tore up and raw from Forever & Always, but I love this even more! 

It’s such a weird sensation.
Openly wanting your heart and soul to be ripped to shreds, but wanting it all the while.

I feel as though I have been gutted.
I bawled.
I felt so conflicted.

Even now that the book is over! Gaa…
You literally don’t feel like you know what’s right and wrong anymore.
How things should be now that they’re back to “normal”?

Everything is so insanely screwed up that you can feel your morals and reactions shifting in ways you didn’t think they would. 
*Deep Breath*
This made me see and feel and know that sometimes life is just a crap shoot.
Literally.
It can be so messed up and in this story, you are more upside down than you could possibly imagine. 

As I stated earlier, things that may normally feel so so wrong, all of a sudden feel almost right.

I’m finding it extremely difficult to review without giving everything away, but know that it’s sooooo good and you have to read it.

You have to!

After Forever was 5 Stars for me!!

One to Keep by Tia Louise - Blog Tour, Review, Giveaway, and SALE-EBRATION!


 
Author: Tia Louise
Title: One To Keep
Publisher: TLM Productions
 

 
 
There’s a new guy in town... 
“Patrick Knight, single, retired Guard-turned private investigator. I was a closer. A deal maker. I looked clients in the eye and told them I’d get their shit done. And I did...”
 
Patrick doesn’t do “nice.”
At least, not anymore.
 
After his fiancĂ©e cheats, he follows up with a one-night stand and a disastrous office hook-up. His business partner (Derek Alexander) sends him to the desert to get his head straight—and clean up the mess.
 
While there, Patrick meets Elaine, and blistering sparks fly, but she’s not looking for any guy. Or a long-distance relationship.
 
Patrick’s ready to do anything to keep her, but just when it seems he’s changed her mind, the skeletons from his past life start coming back.
 
 

 
 
 
EXCERPT
 
She didn’t push me away or tell me no as I kissed her again with more urgency this time. She turned, and I kissed her cheek.
 
“I’m too weak when it comes to you,” she murmured as I traced the line of her jaw with my lips. “I should be stronger.”
 
My kisses moved to her temple and into her hairline. She was so beautiful, and I had her again. “You’re incredibly strong,” I murmured. “You held me off for three weeks when everything in me wanted to come here and take you back.”
 
I could feel her breathing pick up as I kissed her, and the tension below my waist grew tighter. My mouth returned to hers, and it opened quickly, tongues uniting, her fingers now threading in my hair.
 
Her lips were so sweet, but I moved my kisses to her chin, dropping down to her neck, and unfastening the buttons on her shirt, kissing every spot of delicate skin that was revealed as it came apart…


MY REVIEW
 
There's a new guy in town, and Patrick...Ooo...He's my favorite!

He's broken and torn in all the right ways, as he struggles to find his way after SHE and the guy from 24B break him.

He becomes a little reckless.
Mixing plenty of misjudgment and sin worthy mistakes in places he has no business mixing. 
So while we're shaking our heads saying "Nooo...Patrick!  Don't do it!"
We're intrigued and right there with him.
Hearts racing and Feet pacing.
 
Then when he's really gone and done it, he takes a work assignment in Scottsdale that leads to his potential future - Elaine.
 
She's exactly the medicine he needs.
 
Sweet, confident, sexy, easy going, but she's not afraid to take charge either!
This puts Patrick wildly out of his comfort zone and I could kiss her for it! {Heart}
 
Their situation in Scottsdale is not exactly ideal, so as their relationship tries to progress, we end up taking several twists and turns.
It's wonderful and sad and FUN and happy and you'll find yourself saying "Ruh Roh" a time or two!
 
I thoroughly enjoyed Patrick and Elaine's story!
 
If you're like me - It will get your blood flowing and through several unexpected surprises, your heart will be racing and occasionally aching throughout their journey.
 
The ending really got me too!!
 
4.5 Stars for Me! xo

Forever & Always by Jasinda Wilder


 
Forever & Always has my heart in so many ways!
Twisting and tugging and breaking and loving…

I want to hold on tight to the love that exists in Caden and Ever – Forever.

The back and forth letters between these two were…Ugg…so good!
It took me back.

Those intimate conversations were absolutely some of my most favorite moments.
Their sharing was so honest and intense!
I swear I could feel and sympathize with how each were feeling.
Each overcome with something that is so much bigger than them.

I’m not sure that *I* could have handled some of these situations myself, yet I felt humbled and envious of what they have.

That kind of friendship.
That kind of love.
That kind of strength.

So again…Do I think I could handle some of what they went through?
I’m not really sure.
Especially in Caden’s case.

Maybe I was more vulnerable than some to this story, because of some unexpected events that have come about in my life recently, but be prepared!

This is NOT your everyday feel good romance that gives you those fuzzy, happy, lets run off into the sunset moments (even though there are a few of those).

It’s real.
Emotional.
Raw.


Jasinda definitely didn’t hesitate to rip my heart out on more than one occasion!
Dare I say it was refreshing?
I realize how warped that sounds, but it kind of was.
 

After wallowing and a few tears, I’m ready to continue Caden and Ever’s story.
God help me (!), because right now…
In this moment...
*Points downwards*
My heart is aching.

I hope and pray and wish and hope and pray that my thoughts aren’t correct on the direction this story is going. *Sniff*
I’m not sure my heart can take it.

Wonderfully written!
Now will someone please pass the Kleenex. *Sniff*
 
4.5 Stars for me!
