Talk Nerdy to Me (Sterling Shore 12) by C.M.Owens

Despite the fact it seemed like Base Masters was all over Sterling Shore, I'd never really known much about him, aside from random factoids. Things like...he's a semi-estranged cousin of one of my brother's friends, plays guitar in a local band, and he doesn't get mentioned much unless he's on stage.

Until...he decided I was going to be his first real-life muse, moved himself into my spare room, and started splashing the walls with pictures of my face next to his lyrics...

His weirdness differs from mine, but he'd be a perfect candidate for my hymen situation. Then I could finally move on to the next personal challenge on my list. The only problem is that he's yet another man afraid of a virgin.

I genuinely never expected it to be so difficult to lose one's virginity. I think the world has filled me with false expectations of debauchery coming so easily.

The human element always messes up the plans in my head.

Cross + Catherine: The Companion (legacy novel) by Bethany-Kris

The crime boss and the hustling queen are back for one last goodbye … 

Cross and Catherine watch as their kids grow up, and everything changes again. Life is still as busy as it ever was for these two, and their family. 

Cece and Nazio are trying to figure this life thing out. From toddling babies to wedding bells, everything they’ve ever wanted is already at their fingertips. 

Go behind the scenes and beyond the final chapter of the Cross + Catherine series in The Companion to find never-before-seen POVs, deleted scenes, future outtakes, and short stories—all requested by readers. 

Each snapshot is written in short-story form, and meant to be enjoyed as individual pieces by the readers of the Cross + Catherine series. It is not standalone, and is not intended to be read as one.

My thoughts:
This book was needed for the fans. the premise of this book helps to fill in the gaps in the story. The book is made up of a collection of short stories. the stories make you feel closer to the c…

Elect (eagle elite 2) By Rachel Van Dyken

Would you die for the one you love?
Nixon Abandonato made his choice. And now he has to pay the price. Tracey is the love of his life, but being with him has made her a target of his family's enemies. The only way to keep Trace alive is convince the world she means nothing to him. 

Trace Rooks has fallen irrevocably in love with the son of her family's sworn rival, and she knows in her bones nothing can tear them apart. Until Nix suddenly pushes her away and into the arms of his best friend... But Trace isn't ready to give up on a future with Nix--and if he won't fight for them, she will. 

In the end, a sacrifice must be made. A life for a life. For what better way to cover a multitude of sins than with the blood of a sinner . . . 

My thoughts:
This series will be the death of me and I am only on book 2. The book starts off with a bang and just keeps on rolling. This book is told from three points of view. I will say that I am team Chase all the way. I love that he i…

Xander: Part 2, The Present (rockstar series 14) by Anne Mercier

t's eleven years later, and we're still living separate lives. While I know she isn't comfortable with my lifestyle after everything she’s been through, I can't be without her anymore.

I need her.


She's my wife.

She's my heartbeat.

She's my every breath.

She's my everything.

I want to know every detail of her life. I want to be part of it all. I want to work as hard to get there as she did to get here.

She's always been my girl—even at the age of eight. As I face her now, there's no doubt she'll be mine until I draw my last breath.

It's time for our forever to begin.

My thoughts:
This book was on my most anticipated reads for 2018 and it is finally here! I was so nervous to read they this book at first because I did not want it to be a bad book. I will warn you now that you will cry for like 80% of the book. There were so many emotional moments. In this book, we get more of a serious Xander than we are used to but I liked seein…

Cover Reveal for Refrain (rockstar 15) by Anne Mercier

I know that today is not my usual posting day but you know my obsession with this series. So without further ado...

🎢πŸ₯ŠπŸŽΈ REFRAIN (Rockstar Book 15) 🎸πŸ₯ŠπŸŽΆ 🌟 Ethan and Linc's story (m/m romance) ⭐️ ↳ Estimated release date: Mid-August ↵
As a child, I trusted no one. Then I found my best friends. They gave me a family and saved me from a life of abuse that still has me messed up.
Then one of those best friends captured my heart. Lincoln, tough yet tender, a walking contradiction. He loves me too—flaws and all. He’s the most patient man on the earth and understands my PTSD.
What he doesn’t understand is why our being intimate makes me feel “dirty”. He’s not one of the men who abused me and he’d never hurt me. I know this. I believe it.

Elite (eagle elite 1) by Rachel Van Dyken

Blurb: For Tracey Rooks, life with her grandparents on a Wyoming farm has always been simple. But after her grandmother's death, Tracey is all her grandfather has. So when Eagle Elite University announces its annual scholarship lottery, Tracey jumps at the opportunity to secure their future and enters. She isn't expecting much-but then she wins. And life as she knows it will never be same . . .

The students at Eagle Elite are unlike any she's ever met . . . and they refuse to make things easy for her. There's Nixon, gorgeous, irresistible, and leader of a group that everyone fears: The Elect. Their rules are simple. 1. Do not touch The Elect. 2. Do not look at The Elect. 3. Do not speak to The Elect. No matter how hard she tries to stay away, The Elect are always around her and it isn't long until she finds out the reason why they keep their friends close and their enemies even closer. She just didn't realize she was the enemy -- until it was too late.

Legendary (caraval 2) by Stephanie Garber

This is a bonus post for the week. It won't happen every week but if I think the book is that good I will put up an extra post on Sundays on top of whatever content I normally post during the week.

A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.

After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her father and saved her sister Scarlett from a disastrous arranged marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name.

The only chance of uncovering Legend’s identity is to win Caraval, so Tella throws herself into the legendary competition once more—and into the path of the murderous heir to the throne, a doomed love story, and a web of secrets…including her sister's. Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice. But now the game is asking for more. If T…

Alannna (Slater Brothers 5.5) by L.A. Casey

Alannah Ryan is plagued by an old face haunting her dreams, turning her waking hours into a mess of worry. Talking it out with the person she loves the most isn’t a possibility, not when the same face haunts him, too. 

To protect the love of her life from another burden, she keeps her fear to herself, even as that fear begins to consume her. 

Damien Slater has the life he always wanted with the woman he adores by his side, but there’s a problem. His woman is keeping a secret, and they swore they would never let another secret come between them again. 

Breaking Alannah’s guard will be Damien’s greatest challenge yet as he proves once and for all that he is in it for the long haul. 

Alannah admires Damien, and what Alannah admires, Alannah watches over.
My thoughts:
I love this series. I have been waiting for this book to come out for a while now. now that it is here it was well worth the wait. Daimain is one of my favorite characters in the series. Alanna is all about how she is not s…
