5 stars for Getting Played by Emma Chase

Dean Walker is all about keeping life simple. He’s effortlessly talented and intelligent - spending his summers playing drums in the local band and the rest of the year teaching high school in the same Jersey town where he grew up. He likes his love life simple too, enjoying the commitment-free hook-ups his good looks and sexy charm have always made oh so easy.

Then he meets Lainey Burrows. And his simple, easy life gets turned upside down.

One wild one-night stand was all it was ever supposed to be, so Lainey is shocked when she discovers that her sizzling summer fling is also her son’s new math teacher. But that’s nothing compared to the most unexpected twist of all - their hot hook-up left Lainey knocked up, and now they’re about to become parents. Together.

What ensues is an addictive, insatiable, sweet and tender romance that won’t be simple, but it will be more than worth the fight.

Last year when I listened to the first book in this series, I was blown away. I thought for sure it would be my favorite of the ‘Getting Some’ series, but I was wrong. Getting Played was even better and more addicting than the first! I was obsessed with this book and couldn’t stop listening.

Getting Played is about Lainey, a single mom, who lets loose one night in the summer and does something she never usually does. Has a one night stand with a sexy drummer. Dean is this drummer. We know Dean as Garrett’s best friend and the math teacher at Lakeside. They only have one night together, but it’s hella hot and perfect and the only regret Lainey has is that she didn’t get Dean’s last name and doesn’t have a way to contact him.

It would have really been handy when she found out she was pregnant… Lainey and her teenage son move to a new town, Lakeside and Lainey is ready to raise the baby on her own and all is good. Until she runs into Dean again… gah! I loved their reunion so much. This story was just everything.

I loved that Lainey was a strong and independent single momma who always put her son first. She deserved love and someone who would be there for her, but was okay on her own. Dean has such a player past but he’s the type of guy that once he meets the one, it’s over. And Lainey is his one.

Of course there is a bit of drama and angst, but overall it’s just a really sweet and fun rom-com. If you’re looking for a good time, pick up this audio book! Once again, Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt did an incredible job narrating. I loved listening to this book. Their narration is wonderful and they voiced Lainey and Dean perfectly.

This is such a heartwarming and feel good romance. It was swoony, sexy, sweet, and left the biggest grin on my face. I adored it. Seriously, there wasn’t anything I didn’t love about this book! Highly recommended to all romance lovers.

Letters To Molly by @Devney Perry now LIVE!

Letters To Molly by Devney Perry


Molly Alcott didn’t expect to open her mailbox one summer morning and find an old letter stuffed between bills and a supermarket flyer. Penned in familiar handwriting, dated over fifteen years ago, the letter was written to Molly after her first date with the man she’ll never forget.

Week after week, new letters appear. Each marks an event in the history of their epic love affair. Each heals a wound. Each holds the confession of the man who still owns Molly’s heart.

The letters are full of promise, hope and love, but truth be told, Molly wishes she could unread them all.

Because the man who wrote these letters is not the one sending them.

My love for Finn wasn’t going to stop. I could tell myself and others I wasn’t in love with Finn. It was all lies. I’d buried that love deep, shoving it down whenever it threatened to appear, but it was still there. It had always been there.

Letters to Molly is the second book in Devney Perry's Maysen Jar series. I was equal parts nervous and excited to read this. This book is about a divorced couple and I was anxious to see how it would work out and how it would make me feel. I shouldn't have been, I ended up loving it even more than the first!

Molly and Finn meet through Finn's sister and Molly's BFF Poppy. They hit it off right away and end up dating and falling in love. That leads to marriage, two kids, and a pretty great life. Their marriage isn't perfect, no ones is, but when Poppy's husband is killed things start to fall apart. Even though Molly did something some would consider the deal breaker for the marriage, I honestly felt like it was equally both of them. No matter who was at fault, they've been divorced for years and it's obvious after all those years, they're both still very much in love with one another.

Molly never thinks much of it. She's not moved on, she'll always love Finn but she knows she'll never have him again. Then, one day, a letter shows up in her mailbox. One written by Finn to her many years ago. Finn wrote the letter, but he wasn't the one who sent it to her. Both Finn and Molly try to figure out who is sending the letters, but it's to no avail. While all this is going on, they begin sleeping together again. It's just sex, until it's not. Let me tell you, things are about to get really complicated.

I loved Molly and Finn. I loved them both as parents and people. Reading their past made my heart hurt for their relationship together and the way things went and how they treated each other. I was never more happy to have a couple find a second chance at love. It's very rare that a couple that went through all that can come out the other side and make it work. But no one is more deserving of this second chance love story than Molly. I adored her. She's an amazing woman and was my favorite character in the book.

This wasn't an easy book to read. At times, it was difficult. It was emotional and heartwrenching, but also beautiful and heartwarming. This book will give you so many feels and comes highly recommended!!

BLOG TOUR: Written With You by Aly Martinez

WWY - BT banner.jpg

“Aly Martinez is one of the best in the business. You have to read her books.” --Meghan March, New York Times Bestselling Author

Written With You, the emotional and highly anticipated conclusion to The Regret Duet from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez, is available now!

WW You FOR WEB.jpg

When I was fifteen, a single bullet changed my life. I spent the next decade trying to outrun the devastation of my past, building an empire that would shield me from whatever life could throw at me.

But all the money in the world couldn’t help me when I found a screaming newborn abandoned on my doorstep.

I’d never wanted to be a father. Passing the sludge that ran through my veins down to an innocent child seemed like a tragedy. But there she was—pink cheeks, red hair, and mine.

Somehow, against all logic, that little girl became the best thing that ever happened to me. It was impossible to stay lost in the past when I was the only one who could protect her future.

Which is exactly why, when her mother came back four years later, I was ready for battle.

If only I could stop myself from falling in love with her during the war.

Written with You is the epic conclusion of Aly Martinez's newest duet. I don't know how she continues to shock me with all these twists and turns, but reading an Aly Martinez book is so refreshing because I never know what I'm getting. There was a huge twist in book 1 that I never saw coming and then, just when I thought I had everything figured out- bam. Another one hit and it hit hard.

This story is so hard to review without spoilers for the first book, so it may be a little vague. It's really best to go into these books blind and enjoy the ride. This couple has a lot in their pasts to work through. Their relationship isn't easy, it's insanely complicated, but it's apparent that they belong together.

This is a book you won't be able to put down. I read it in one evening. Once I started it, there was no way I was doing anything else. It was a story of forgiveness, love, and acceptance. These characters had been through so much and had to dig deep to heal and move past their past.

If you're looking for an epic story that's completely unputdownable, look no further. The Regret Duet is just that. Intense, sexy, angsty, emotional, and full of twists and turns, this is a series you don't want to miss out on.
Our relationship was born in a tragedy, but I had faith we could flourish in the fortune of the seconds on the other side.

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairytale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life.

However, I owed that innocent child more.

And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.
