Allie
 
When I moved to River’s Edge, dating was the last thing on my mind.
I definitely didn’t expect to fall for him.
Jesse Shepherd. 
Popular. Star athlete. Cocky as hell.
You know the type.
But as time passed, I realized there was more lurking beneath that gorgeous exterior.
Secretive. Angry. A little bit broken.
The more I peeled back his layers, the deeper I fell.
Until I slammed headfirst into his sea of lies.
 
Jess
 
I blew my shot.
Pissed everything away—college, lacrosse, my future—only to end up right back where I started in River’s Edge.
I was content to revel in my misery, spending my days drowning in a bottomless pit of booze and girls.
Until I saw her.
Allison Parrish.
Beautiful. Sarcastic. Perpetual bad attitude.
The pretty little distraction from the shit show that was my life.
But the sins of my past were closing in on me, and I learned the hard way that nothing gold can stay.
 
“Did you hear that?” I ask. 

Moving in slowly, he cages me in, bracing his right arm on the wall above my head, his left hand by my hip. He brings his lips close to my ear and I fight the shiver that rolls through me. “It’s probably just your admirer,” he says, his voice hushed and husky. I swallow hard, looking over his shoulder as he nuzzles closer, his nose skimming my neck, then down to my collarbone. My pulse pounds in my ears as he moves back up, his mouth brushing across my cheek, stopping at my parted lips. 

“Is this convincing?” He asks. He’s so close that I can feel his breath on my lips, and I realize that I want him to do it. I want him to kiss me. 

I give a slight shake of my head in response. 

“No?” He smirks, knowing exactly what he’s doing to me. His left hand leaves the wall to curl around my hip and he presses his chest to mine. “How about this?” 

“Almost,” I whisper. I wet my lips and the tip of my tongue nearly grazes his bottom lip. His expression goes from playful to heated in an instant, then he’s closing the final distance. 

It’s soft at first, just a brush of his lips against mine, but soon he’s cupping my face with both hands, tilting my head back as his tongue sweeps into my mouth, his movements confident and skilled. Unhurried and unyielding. 

My hands find his shirt, pulling him closer as his tongue fucks my mouth. Because that’s exactly what this is. This isn’t kissing. Or maybe it is, and I’ve been kissing the wrong boys. 

Jesse groans, fitting a firm thigh between my legs, and the need bubbling inside me threatens to boil over at the sensation. But all too soon, he pulls back, leaving me breathless. 

“Was that convincing enough?”
Charleigh Rose lives in Narnia with her husband and two young children. She’s hopelessly devoted to unconventional love and pizza. When she isn’t reading or mom-ing, she’s writing moody, broody, swoony romance.

Favorite Covers of 2018!

IMG_9495

 

What do you love about a cover? For me – sometimes it’s the beauty, sometimes it’s the gorgeous face I can’t stop staring at, sometimes it’s the mystery of it, and sometimes I just love it so much because the book has touched me in such a powerful way. These are only a handful that have stayed with me this year!

IMG_9492

Vicious by L.J. Shen is one of my all-time favorite books! I could read it again and again, or sometimes just chapters at a time. She released this new limited cover of the book this past Summer and I was lucky enough to get a signed copy of it from her. I absolutely love it – it captures Millie LeBlanc perfectly!

 

IMG_9491

The Beautiful Hearts Duet by Emma Scott is in my Top 5 books of the year! This duet was so beautiful and brilliant and these characters have stayed with me for several months now. This was an even more special release by Emma Scott because she lost her 10 year old daughter this past Summer, and therefore this duet holds a place very close to my (and her) heart. I will never forget these characters and their story, and I look forward to reading it again and again.

IMG_9490

Rewrite the Stars by Charleigh Rose is one of my favorite books this year – but gah – look at this cover!!! Sebastian is one of those heroes that I fall for completely – he is broken, broody, cocky and ridiculously gorgeous. This story is all-consuming with the magic of the carnival setting and the characters. You will devour it!

 

IMG_9486

Timid by Devney Perry is the 2nd book in her Lark Cove series, and all the covers of the series are equally gorgeous, but this one just spoke to me. I fell in love with both Willa & Jackson and was completely immersed in their small town romance. This series will make you feel like you are right there in Lark Cove living with these relatable characters.

IMG_9484

Look the Part by Jewel E. Ann is about Flint Hopkins, a single dad, who is one of my favorite heroes this year. He is so different from any other hero I have read – but is so damn charming, unique and lovable, that I just fell head over heels for him. You will also love Ellen who comes barging into Flint and his son’s life in big fashion – just like Jewel E. Ann loves to do with her characters. This one is an emotional roller-coaster worth the ride!

 

IMG_9462

 

Waterfall Effect by K.K. Allen was one of the first books I read in 2018, and it has held my FAVORITE cover spot since then! It is gorgeous and it embodies everything about this book. This is a new adult second-chance-romance about Jaxon and Aurora who have many dark secrets and a tragic past. The connection and chemistry between them is one that is hard to top in the new adult genre. I fell head over heels for Jaxon and did not want their story to end. If you like a bit of suspense in your romance stories – you will love this one!

Review: Rewrite the Stars by Charleigh Rose

Rewrite the StarsRewrite the Stars by Charleigh Rose

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book definitely made me want to run off and join the circus….or is it carnival?!?! Gah – these characters, the setting, the fantasy of it all was so refreshing and mesmerizing, and I loved every second of it! Charleigh Rose writes books with characters who are so relatable and down to earth that you can’t help fall for them. In this story you will not only fall for Sebastian and Evangaline (Evan) but also several of the side characters.

I was pulled into this story from the Prologue and couldn’t put it down….the mystery of Sebastian, and the innocence and troubled youth of Evan take you back to your own High School days of dramatic friendships and family arguments. Evan runs away from her parents in the midst of a family argument, and somehow finds herself in the hands of Sebastian, the dark and broody carnival motorbike stuntman. The chemistry between the two of them is on fire from the beginning. I fell for Seb’s dark demeanor immediately. He is all male – cocky, ridiculously good looking, and unattainable to every female he has encountered. Even though he has a tough exterior, you just know that there is much more to him with how he reacts to Evan and the attention he gives to her. As his story unfolds and his walls come down, you will want him all to yourself. He is strong yet sensitive, and his passion is HOT. I was ready for him to take me on a ferris wheel ride!!

I loved Seb, but I think I loved Evan even more. She is young, hurting, alone, but tougher than any carnie she comes across. She will take on the boys with her words or her fists, and stand up to anyone who is ready to knock her down. She is beautiful yet broken, and her naive view of the world and people coupled with her tough determination get her everywhere with the carnies, and eventually Sebastian. I was in awe of this girl with her feisty attitude, fierceness, and desire to be loved by family and friends.

Not only is this story about young lust and love, but it is also about broken families, starting over with nothing, and believing in fate. Seb believed he was cursed and only had one path in life, and when Evan stepped in the way time and again, it all changed. I loved their angst, the emotional push and pull, and the honest and raw emotions from both of them. I fell harder for Seb each time he fought his desire for Evan only to fall harder for her in their next encounter. It was real – it was magical – and it was addicting.

You will love this carnival setting, and the secondary characters are amazing! I am hoping that this series continues with a couple of my favorites, and we get more of what’s next for Seb & Evan because I didn’t nearly get enough of them. Well done once again Charleigh Rose!!!!

New Release: Yard Sale by Charleigh Rose

Title: Yard Sale
Author: Charleigh Rose
Genre: New Adult Romance (novella)
Release Date: July 26, 2018

Mollie 
I was freshly fired from my job and betrayed by my boyfriend.
It was a new low for me. 
A one-night stand with an arrogant stranger was just what I needed. 
I didn’t know that he was a famous snowboarder, or that he’d give me the best sex of my life.
I wasn’t ever supposed to see him again.
Fate had other plans. 
 
Cam
I was young and rich with the whole world at my fingertips.
I was in my prime.
A one-night stand with a hot little tourist on the rebound was the perfect way to spend my weekend.
I didn’t know she’d leave in the middle of the night, or that I’d wake up wanting more. 
I never thought I’d see her again. 
Now she’s back.
She’s been keeping a secret.
One that will change everything.

“Why were you upset earlier?” I ask. “Boyfriend issues? Daddy issues?” Mollie huffs out a humorless laugh. “Sort of. I just got out of a complicated relationship right before I came here.”“Ah, so I’m the rebound,” I guess. Mollie shrugs and gives me an apologetic smile. “Maybe?” “I hate it when beautiful women use my body to get over their boyfriends. You should be ashamed of yourself,” I say, reaching over to grab her by the waist and pulling her on top of me. My cock nestles between her wet pussy lips, and she slides back and forth on top of me.“So ashamed,” Mollie says, feigning innocence. “Is it working?” I ask, flexing my hips upward. “Are you over him yet?” “Almost,” she breathes, as my hands reach up to palm her perky tits. “I guess we’ll just have to try again,” I say, and then she angles her hips just right to take me inside her. “Just one more time.”
