Tara's 5 Bare Naked Stars Review

Is there such a thing as love at first sight?  Can seeing one person change your whole world?  What if that person won't give into you?  

"So, while I know showing up under the influence of beer and moonshine is not my best bet, I continue to drink just enough to lower my inhibitions and build my courage."

Olivia has given up on love. Leaving a relationship that left her feeling small with zero confidence in herself, Olivia decides to focus on what she knows best...her work, pouring everything that she has in to her projects. Walking into a bar in pjs, the last thing Olivia is looking for is an admirer.....enter Cash!
Cash is living the dream. Making it big in the country music scene is his goal, and he's ready to take the win.  Cash has never had any trouble getting the girl, but when pj clad Olivia crosses his path, Cash will stop at nothing to call her his!

"I couldn’t get her out of my mind after I dropped her off. The smell of her perfume and the way her hair framed her face had me leaning into her. She’s the perfect song, and I want to be the one to write it."

This is was great book!!!  Fabiola conjured up two great MC's, both strong and determined. And the hot steamy scenes in lovin' on you....So hot!!  I could not put this book down!!  If you're looking for a chase, with hot and steamy at every turn, lovin' on you is just what you need!!  

"Seeing all the emotions on her face as I sang to her struck me. I never want to stop making her feel this way. I want her to share this experience with me. She’s my muse."

**Release Day Blitz** Jasmine: Kings of Guardian





Jasmine: Kings of Guardian Book 6 

by Kris Michaels 

Genre: Military Romance 

#JasmineKingsOfGuardianRelease 



Book 6 in the series but all books can be read standalone





Synopsis


Jasmine King loved her chosen profession, until assigned as personal security to Chad Nelson. The sex-fueled country superstar was either a stone cold killer or the target of a deranged psychopath. Regardless, the self-absorbed bad boy was now hers to protect, and she’d be damned if she’d fail—despite the singer’s best efforts to expand her job into a more personal one.

One minute Chad’s the reigning king of country music and in the next, an FBI murder suspect—two murders, actually. As if that’s not bad enough, he’s in the cross-hairs of someone who wants him dead. The distraction of his gorgeous bodyguard couldn’t have come at a worse time.  He’s got a front row seat to the destruction of his wildly successful and carefully constructed life.

When the race to get him to safety reveals pursuit by not only Chad’s enemies but worse, Guardian’s, positions are reversed as the country star reaches back to a military past and helps free Jasmine from a bloody confrontation.  Jasmine realizes Chad is much more than his surface appearance. Perhaps he’s what she’s needed all along.

Tara's 5 Bare Naked ***** Review

Being a strong, confident woman is tough in this world. It's also a lot tougher when you're in a relationship where you are constantly being degraded and made to feel worthless. Being in a relationship like this is very hard to get out of, especially when you're made to believe that it is your fault. 

"My voice is now raised and my eyes meet his. If I am going to die, I won't do it afraid of him."

Amber believed she had found "the one" with Tommy. He told her all the right things and made her feel special, mostly in front of others. But when they were alone, Tommy tore Amber down inch by inch, until she couldn't recover. When push comes to shove, Amber is forced to do the unthinkable and ends up in a hospital.  Being taken away from all she knows, Amber tries to start fresh, with the help of her new neighbour Will. But will Amber's past come back to haunt her?

"Normal fears for a twenty-one-year-old girl are awakened in me and I know that I want this. I want normal and excited, and I want the butterfly’s that are creating a tornado in my belly.  I want to start living my life again. "

Mistakes of My Past was an intense read. Filled with serious, real-life scenarios, I found myself reading non-stop, with the hope that everything worked out for the MC.  Emily James did a great job highlighting the truth about abuse in relationships, and helped show us that help is always there.  If you find yourself in a similar situation, remember you are not alone. Reach out and talk to someone, take that first step in getting out of an abusive situation. 

"There’s something liberating about finally putting your past behind you and looking toward a meaningful future that makes you feel as free as the birds that soar overhead and the fish that swim in the lake. "

Tara's 4**** Bare Naked Stars Review



Life in the real world is hard, and so are the secrets that we all carry. Life in a virtual reality world is an escape. An escape from everything we run from. It's a place where we can truly be who we want to be, without consequences. But what happens when those two worlds collide?

"When the game puts hearts and lives on the line, taking a loss is the only way to win."

Katy's has a secret. She was born into a family that created hybrid creatures in a different realm. When her family ran and started a life with the humans, Katya had her parents taken from her and was left raising her sister and keeping her family's past a secret. 
Meeting Katya online in a virtual world, Oso, Grizz and Kodie are immediately drawn to her. Having a secret of their own, these men are shape shifters, something they've decided to give up for Katya.  When virtual become true reality, Katya has to face many truths, and has to decide if the three men will be in her real life, or just in her virtual fantasies. 

"While she had never created anything remotely resembling the beast Grizz turned into, she’d created hybrids. She’d worked on the hybrid research. She was the daughter of monsters and that came with a price."

I am not a techie person, so this concept was very new to me. But once I started reading The Grizzly's Tale, I was hooked. I couldn't put it down. Nara made sense of the virtual world, and made it hot!!  I could not get enough of Oso, Grizz and Kodie. And Katya is such a strong female MC, making The Grizzly's Tale a must read!!

"She had no words to tell him what he did to her. No thoughts to paint a canvas for his pleasure. Nothing left to give but her body responding to the reality he conjured."

Book: This Time Around
Author: C. Kaye
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Synopsis

A Second Chance at Love…

Raef Alvero has been groomed his entire life to take over as CEO of Alvero & Alvero. He’s also spent his entire life trying to please his father…Even if that meant giving up the one woman he ever truly loved. Now fate has intervened. Raef is faced with handling the buyout  and closing down of a chain of hair salons…one in which Gemma works. Five years has passed since Raef decided to leave Gemma, but everything comes rushing back when he walks into the salon. All the pain, all the memories…all the love. And he knows he won’t let her go again. Not ever, no matter what else he has to give up.

Can be a dangerous thing.

Gemma Warren knew the salon franchise had been sold …but she never expected the new owner to show up at the shop –and she really never expected he would be the same 6 feet of seduction who left her heartbroken and pregnant 5 years ago. But what she’s feeling –aside from total shock – isn’t hatred. The feelings of love Raef left her with have just been buried deep in her heart ,and now that he’s back, keeping them secret from him will be as impossible as keeping their daughter a secret. With pictures of little Charlotte displayed all over the salon, Raef would know immediately he had a child. Then what…? Could he ever forgive Gemma for hiding her?
A second chance is all they need, some time to forgive, but there’s a sinister plan already set in motion—one that will threaten not only Raef and Gemma’s happiness, but the life of their little girl.

Our Review by Tara


"I sob as my heart breaks. I survived him leaving me once, but I don't know if I can survive it again. Why did I ever trust him?"

What do you do when the love of your life walks out the door?  Do you move on?  Or do what it takes to get them back?

"As I drift in and out of sleep, I know this will be another night filled with dreams of Raef. I tell myself I don’t love him anymore. My dreams tell me I do. "

Gemma and Raef were true loves,  soulmates. But one poor decision puts their relationship to an end.  Gemma held on to a secret that would have turned her relationship with Raef into something more. When Raef let Gemma go, it was all for his father. But when he runs into Gemma again, Raef can't hide the love he's kept inside all those years apart. Can these two lost loves trust each other once again, and let love lead the way. 

"We stand for a moment with inches between us as we stare into each other's eyes. I reach for him and he quickly grabs me, pulling me tightly into him. I feel the wetness of his tear against my cheek. We don't speak any words, we just hold each other. "

C. Kaye put a lot of love into this book, and it shows. Filled with emotion, and twists and turns, This Time Around has you rooting for true love!
