Review: CONTROL by K. Bromberg!


My Review: There's just something so classic about the woman who lives her life on the fringe, doing things her own way, falling in love with a controlled, straight laced man. And that's essentially what we get here. A sweet, and fun, story about opposites attracting and coming together.

I'm not very familiar with this series by K. Bromberg. I do love her writing, and she's always been consistently awesome,  every book I've read by her. Control is no different. With this book, we have a well written story, characters I fell in love with, and it's all wrapped up in a perfect little one-sitting-read package. Definitely worth your time!!

Cover Lovin': 1001 Dark Nights classic.

Recommendation: Can be read as a stand alone.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)!! So worth a read!

  About K Bromberg: New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love. She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California. On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled).

Review: EYE OF THE EAGLE by Sharon Buchbinder!

Eye of the Eagle Tour Graphic

My Review: I love it when the hero and heroine clash. There's nothing better than them wanting to leave each other alone, but unable to because they can't fight that magical attraction. And that's pretty much what we have here - Bert and Phoebe have their own lives to live, their own issues to deal with.. they really don't need to get caught up in each others' drama. But that makes it so much more satisfying when they can't help themselves. 

This was a solid paranormal romance. Their abilities weren't an after thought, like "Oh yeah and they have powers," and at the same time - they weren't the whole focus of the story. There was a great balance between the paranormal aspect, the suspense, and the romance. It was a quick read, maybe a little faster than I would have liked since I wanted it to last longer. Overall, definitely a good read, and I'd happily read more.

Cover Lovin': Simple, yet sweet.

Recommendation: Book three, but can be read alone. 

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! A good, quick read. I'll gladly read more of this series! 
Eye of the Eagle
Series: Hotel LaBelle Series Book 3
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Publication Date: November 12, 2018
One soars like an eagle. One strikes like a thunderbird. But for both hearts, revenge can be deadly when it's nourished.
Anomaly Defense Director and shapeshifter Bert Blackfeather doesn't need a boss with no experience. So what if she's beautiful or gives him a jolt when she shakes his hand? He never plans to get seriously involved with another woman—not in this lifetime.
Phoebe Wagner, an empath with psychometric abilities and an advocate for the deaf, gets more than she bargained for with Bert. One touch and she relives his IED injuries. So what if he's handsome and hot? She doesn't need to add his secrets to her own. Phoebe's are bad enough.
When his niece goes missing from Hotel LaBelle, Bert goes to Montana to help—and Phoebe insists on going with him. Can these two hard-headed people share their darkest secrets in order to work together? It may be the only way to save an endangered child—and their own hearts when Bert's past rears its ugly head.

Review: DRIVEN TO DISTRACTION by Lori Foster!!


My Review: Lori gets me every time!! I was so sad to see the Body Armor series end, but I knew it was time to move on. But like always, when Lori Foster shuts something down, she begins something even better - I always doubt that it's possible, and she always proves me wrong. And, and and! Our new hero is named Brodie - which, I have to say, is a name I absolutely love. It just sounds so sexy, right? And let me just tell you now, he lives up to the sexyness of his name.

Along with a hot hero, we get a fantastic story, here. Once again, Lori Foster proves she deserves her bestseller rank with amazing characterization, a plot that can really suck you in, and suspense that leaves you on the edge of your seat. She's one of the best authors out there when it comes to seamlessly weaving in a complex and engaging plot with a true romance and some serious steam. I can always feel the connection between her characters, and Driven to Distraction is no different. I can't wait for more!!

Cover Lovin': A Lori Foster classic!

Recommendation: Beginning of a new series to love!

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)!! Another truly awesome book by Lori Foster, and I cannot wait for more!

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lori Foster comes DRIVEN TO DISTRACTION, the first in Lori’s sizzling new Road to Love series! Grab your copy today!



When desire gets this hot, you’d better buckle up…

Mary Daniels doesn’t let anything get in the way of her job acquiring rare artifacts for her wealthy boss. But this particular obstacle—huge, hard-muscled, unashamedly masculine—is impossible to ignore. Stuck in a cramped car with Brodie Crewsfor hours en route to their new assignment, Mary feels her carefully crafted persona—and her trademark self-control—is slipping, and she won’t allow it.

Brodie can’t imagine what secret in Mary’s past has left her so buttoned-up, though he’d dearly love to find out. Maybe then she’d trust him enough to explore their explosive chemistry. But he needs this job, so he’ll play by her rules and bide his time…until an enemy determined to outwit them strikes and he needs to get close—in every way—to protect her. Otherwise they could lose much more than a precious collectible. They could lose it all.



Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Apple Books | Kobo

    EXCERPT: As he wove them seamlessly through the traffic, off an exit ramp, along a short drive through a commercial area, then back onto the expressway again, Mary had a revelation: everything about Brodie Crews was over the top. His rugged good looks. His teasing manner. His frank way of speaking. And now, she had to add, his skill at driving. He maneuvered with ease, weaving through traffic without speeding, seeming to find his way in and out of communities instinctively, all the while being completely relaxed. In fact, if it hadn’t been for seeing his anger at the men who’d approached his car, she would wonder if Brodie Crews took anything seriously. For the rest of the drive, she helped keep watch but she didn’t spot the SUV again. Finally, she could relax too. “I think you lost them.” He shot her a look of comical indignation. “You had doubts?” Not really. And for some absurd reason, she was proud of him. What would he think if she told him that? He’d probably make a few more jokes, laugh it off, and continue being outrageous. Belatedly, she answered him. “No.” “No?” “I didn’t have any real doubts.” “Good. Because my guess is that they’ll somehow catch up to us on the way back. I mean, if they’re following, the whole point would be to steal from us whatever your boss bought, right?” That was always a possibility. There’d been other times where she and a driver were waylaid, the goods stolen, and she’d had to go back to Therman empty-handed. She would avoid that as best she could. “Yes, it’s possible.” Cavalier, somewhat cocky, he said, “Hey, don’t sweat it. I’ll make sure we make the delivery, and on time, too.” Mary appreciated his confidence because it boosted her own—especially as they left the highway for the less traveled roads that would take them to their destination. Giving up her vigilance, she watched Brodie instead. His relaxed posture belied the alert way he took in his surroundings. She realized that he knew trouble could happen, but also believed that he could handle it. Astounding. She’d never known a man so convincingly capable. She’d call him arrogant, except that he was so big, so powerful and formidably hard all over, it was easy to believe he could handle just about everything that might come their way. Thinking that warmed her and she slipped off her button-up shirt, leaving her in the thin tank top, her arms exposed to the cooler air-conditioning. That helped, but not enough. Especially when she knew that Brodie noted her every movement, even though he wasn’t obvious about it. More heat uncurled from deep inside her, making her breasts feel heavy, her inner thighs tight. It was an un familiar heat, but she recognized it for what it was—base lust. For Brodie. Insane. Ill-advised. But apparently unavoidable. Before she did something stupid, it seemed wise to distract herself by ensuring Brodie understood every possibility. “They could have been following us for another reason.” “Yeah?” He pulled up to a red light and, after checking the traffic in every direction, turned to look at her. “What’s that?” Having that dark, direct gaze aimed at her didn’t help to redirect her thoughts. His eyelashes were almost girly, they were so thick and dark, but Brodie was more elementally male than any man she’d ever met. He quirked a brow. “If we were anywhere else, I’d take that as an invitation.” As if coming out of a trance, she blinked. “What?” “The way you’re looking at me?” His voice was deep, a little rough. “That usually means—” “They may just want to rule out what Therman is getting,” she blurted, cutting him off. Dear God, she had been staring at him like a starving woman. She almost considered putting her button-up shirt back on, just to make sure he didn’t misunderstand. But maybe that would be even more obvious, displaying her uncertainty in situations like this. “They?” he asked, his supercilious brow still up. “The men following us.” She jumped on the topic, hoping to talk past her own embarrassment. She wanted him, really wanted him, and it didn’t make any sense at all. She tried for her confident smile. “There are several collectors who want the same items. Usually whoever is willing to pay the most comes out the victor.” He grinned. “Sounds like some serious sport.” “Oh, believe me, collectors take it very seriously.” Needlessly, she checked her hair, smoothed her skirt, and overall squirmed over her own revelations. She’d been forever without a man. Why now, and why him? She didn’t have any answers; she only knew that he was off limits. Damn.

Exclusive Excerpt:

I spin around to resume my spot in line—it still hasn’t moved—when the doors to the building main entrance open with a bang. “Hurry up, man. I don’t have all fucking day to do this!” I flinch at the harsh tone from the man passing me in the hall. He pops his neck, revealing the edge of a tattoo from under the oversized white T-shirt that clearly hides his ass since his jeans are failing to do their job. He must see my movement out of the corner of his eye because he lowers his cell from his ear. He pins me with a glare, his eyes narrowing to the smallest slits I’ve ever seen. They look black, cold, full of warning and familiar. More than familiar, actually. They belong to Clint Grover. He used to run around with my sister’s ex, Drew, very briefly before he wound up in jail. He must be out now. “What the fuck are you looking at?” he snaps, continuing on his way. I glance to the floor, not giving him the satisfaction of a response. He clearly doesn’t recognize me. I want to keep it that way. “Hold up a sec, man,” he says, and my focus on the carpet in front of me is filled with a pair of worn-out Nikes. “Charlie Campbell?” Shit. I shake my head but don’t look up. My hands are shaking like I’m holding one of those damn work-out shake it things. I take a slow breath, hoping he doesn’t notice. “I know it’s you. Look up.” I don’t. I move to step around him, but he sidesteps to stay in front of me. “I said: Look. Up.” With a heart beating so fast you’d think I drank twenty Red Bulls this morning, I meet his gaze. I can do this. “I knew it. Well, well, well, this is fun.” The smell of a skunk fills my nostrils, and I swallow in a breath not to throw up. “What do you want, Clint?” I ask. “Ah, so you even recognize me. It isn’t the tattoos, is it?” With a face I know holds no expression, I don’t answer him. I just want to get out of here. Far away from him. “The boys know you’re back?” he asks, clicking his tongue against his teeth when I don’t answer. I sigh. If I just talk to him, this will be over quicker. “No. A little hard to spread the news when they’re in jail,” I say. “Now, if you’ll excuse me.” Again, I move to step around him the other way, and again, he steps in front of me. “What? You’re not happy to see me?” I hold my head up but continue to refuse looking at him. Be strong. “If you’re not going to tell me what you want, then please, step aside.” “Damn, you’re a lot more feisty than I remember. I think I like it.” He starts to step toward me, but I say, “Are you going to move or not?” My heart is pounding and my hands are shaking. I can’t decide if I want to scream or cry. His head tilts slowly and his eyes never leave mine. Finally, he steps aside. “I hope to see you soon,” he calls out behind me as I’m basically sprinting down the hallway. I don’t stop to get back in line. I don’t stop till I’m out the doors and in my car with every door locked. Holy shit.
