Judging Books by Shay Savage is LIVE!


Blue with Green-3


The debutante path is a fairly straight track: who you are, who you associate with, and whose label you are wearing become priorities. They define you. They are the aspects by which you are judged.

Ashlyn’s world has been one of enlightenment and finesse, and now she is ready to take on the financial world at her father’s company just as he had always planned. Her future had been scripted long ago, but a chance meeting with a beautiful boy on a bicycle gives Ashlyn a new outlook on life.  

Ethan is far too young, far too tattooed, far too pierced—just far too everything—to ever fit into her world.  He has issues, too—major ones.  Ashlyn knows he will never be accepted by her friends, let alone her overbearing father, but there is something about his live-in-the-moment outlook that keeps drawing her back into his arms.

Ashlyn must make a choice.  Can she forgo the family dynasty and live life to the fullest with this fascinating but damaged young man?

Carpe diem.

Shay Savage is one of those authors that can write in many different genres. Judging Books falls into the cont. romance/NA category (and it’s a stand-alone- YAY) and I adored it! Ethan was one of the sweetest and best heroes I’ve read about in quite some time!

Ashlyn Draganov is getting ready to graduate with her masters in accounting. Her job, and her life for that matter, are pretty much planned. She will work at, and eventually run the family business, Draganov Financials. What is not in her plan is a guy like Ethan. Ashlyn is 26, and Ethan is only 19. When she meets him, his age throws her for a loop, as does his tattoos and piercings, but there is something special about Ethan and she is instantly attracted to him.
He was sweet, adorable, intelligent and absolutely the most incredibly gorgeous individual I had ever seen in my life.

Ethan Ramsey is the greatest. He’s just one of those guys you can’t help but to adore. I loved every single thing about him. His life is far from what I expected it to be when I first met him. Ethan isn’t the normal tattooed, bad boy book boyfriend. He’s totally different and I LOVED that about him! He’s a unique character and I think it’s great not to read the same old same old.

Ethan and Ashlyn had great chemistry and you could feel how much Ethan truly cared about her from the start. His honesty and sweetness was so refreshing! There were things about Ashlyn that irked me for a good part of the book, but she came around completely and by the end, I loved her as well! She and Ethan were truly a great pair!

The title- Judging Books, sums up this story so well. We are all so quick to judge based on appearance, but some people, like Ethan, are so much more than what meets the eye! If you’re looking for an original, heartfelt, steamy, and fun read- pick up this book! I enjoyed it so much!!!

Van by Sawyer Bennett

Van (Cold Fury, Book #9)

Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: November 28, 2017

Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot.

As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse . . . and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.

Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.

Christy's Review:

“I know you, Van Turner,” I whisper to him. “And I think you’re mighty fine.”

Van is the 9th book in Sawyer Bennett’s Cold Fury series and it’s by far my favorite so far! Honestly, I didn’t think I would love it as much as I did. It follows the same time-line as Lucas and I was worried it would be a little repetitive at times, but I was wrong. This story was fantastic and Van and Simone were epic characters!

Simone Fournier is the youngest of the Fournier clan. As her life has turned a little crazy, she's come to stay with her brothers. When she stays with Lucas, she also stays with Van, as he’s his roommate. Simone has it bad for Van. She is instantly attracted to him and relentless with her pursuit. I’m serious here- this girl had me laughing so loud with her attempts to get with Van… I couldn't stop cracking up!
Leaning into Van slightly, I whisper, “I’ll give you some space for now. But don’t be surprised if I crawl into your bed while you’re sleeping.” “I’ll make sure to lock the door,” he growls, and then turns and walks out of his room. I let my laugh follow him all the way out, snickering when the front door slams shut behind him. He and I both know there aren’t any locks on the bedroom doors.

Van has a past that he’s ashamed of, even though its no fault of his own. Due to that past, he doesn't let anyone get too close. Van’s a broken man and Simone is the only one who can seem to get in there and break down his barriers. I adored this couple so much! They were so great together!

Van is one of those books that has it all! It’s steamy, funny, and emotional. I couldn't get enough of Van Turner and Simone Fournier. ‘Shiny’ was the best thing ever! I loved this book so much and I can’t wait for more in this series!
“Van?” I whisper. “Am I still shiny?” He chuckles, pulls me in tighter, and squeezes the breath out of me. “Yes, Simone. So fucking shiny you make everything else in the world seem a little dull by comparison.”

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

Cover Reveal: Brittainy C. Cherry's Behind the Bars!


Behind the Bars, the first standalone in the all-new Music Street Series from Brittainy C. Cherry is coming December 7th!

Behind the Bars Wrap.png

Behind the Bars by Brittainy C. Cherry

Release Date: December 7th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Designer: Kandi Steiner

Photographer: Perrywinkle Photographer

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.

The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.

Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.

Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.

And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.

She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.


Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.

Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.

When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

LOVE by Jillian Dodd!

Book Title:  Love

Series: The Keatyn Chronicles (The 12th and Final book!)
Release date: Tuesday, November 21st
Link to all vendors:  http://www.books2read.com/love5

From USA Today bestselling author Jillian Dodd comes the eleventh book in the addictive Keatyn Chronicles series. Discover a breathless fairy-tale romance with swoon-worthy characters set in a glittering celebrity world. Fans of reality TV will devour this pulse-pounding, sexy Hollywood drama.
Follow the lives and loves of those who work at Captive Films:
Riley Johnson — Captive Films’ CEO and millionaire playboy is hot, privileged, and seriously single. He’s got it all—a brand new jet, exotic cars, a luxury penthouse, and a different aspiring actress (or two) in his bed every night. His life is perfect until the only girl he ever loved walks back into it, causing him to wonder if he truly has it all.

Keatyn Douglas — Hollywood’s sweetheart and owner of Captive Films leads a chaotic, glamorous life. But running a successful film studio, writing scripts, and her own acting career leave little time for the things she dreams of, like marrying the man she loves and having babies. When drama starts at work, she may decide to give it all up for life out of the fast lane.
Dawson Johnson — The dark and dreamy marketing consultant joins Captive to escape his past. For the last two years, his sole focus has been on caring for his adorable daughters after tragedy struck their lives. He comes to Captive looking for a fresh start and, if all goes well, he might find a lot more than that in Hollywood.
Knox Daniels — Considered the sexiest man alive by a certain magazine, the sentiment is echoed by the actor’s adoring fans. While romance abounds in the roles he plays, he’s convinced he’ll never find his own happily ever after—until he meets a woman who just might change that. 
Shelby Benson — The beautiful cocktail waitress and wanna-be actress struggles to make ends meet. A chance encounter with Riley Johnson is her lucky break and the golden ticket to everything she’s ever dreamed of—fame, power, money, sex, and love.
Written soap-opera style with multiple points of view, you can expect lots of drama, sex, and tabloid-worthy events.

Christy's Review: 
“When you surround yourself with the people you love, great things can happen.”

I remember reading Stalk Me over 5 years ago when it was first released. I was enamored with Keatyn Douglas and I couldn’t wait for more of her. With each book, I loved these characters more. I’ve watched them grow from high schoolers, to adults with their own families. It’s bittersweet to see a series you love so dearly come to an end, but I think Jillian ended these books in a fantastic way!

This book follows Keatyn and Aiden, Riley, Dawson, Dallas, Vanessa, Knox, and a slue of other characters. IFLY Keatyn and Aiden and I love reading about them, but what I loved most about this is that my boy, Riley was redeemed. The last few books I was questioning his character and the man he became, but it’s safe to say I love him again!

These stories have lots of drama, but they also have lots of heart. Love, especially, was a heartfelt story. I feel like everyone got the ending they needed, and you get closure. I fell in love with these characters all over again.

If I had to choose one word to describe these stories I would use the word ADDICTIVE. Once you start them, you won’t want to stop. I love these books so much and I highly recommend them! As sad as I am they’re over, theres always re-reads! Love is a wonderful ending to a beloved series of mine! It’s fun, emotional, sexy, and I loved it!!!

She’s bad at love, but he’s even worse…

Karina Halle did an amazing job with this book! Bad at Love is one of the best friends to lovers books I’ve read in the longest time. Marina and Laz are fantastic characters and I loved their story to pieces!

Mariana and Lazarus have been friends for a long time, and even though they have loads of chemistry, they’ve never taken their relationship past friendship. Why? Because they’re both bad at love. Horrible at it, in fact. Mariana can’t get passed the third date to start a relationship, and Laz is a serial monogamist jumping from girlfriend to girlfriend getting bored after a few weeks or months.

Laz has this great idea… Mariana and Laz date each other to see what they’re doing wrong and why things aren’t working out for them. Their dates were so much fun. They both had me laughing so hard and I adored them! I loved their lighthearted friendship, but even more than that, I loved when they started to really let each other in.


“Let me in. Let me be here for everything, all the good, all the bad. All your light and all your dark.”


Laz is one of those heroes who I couldn’t help but love. Honestly, he was a great guy and had a huge heart. He wanted something more, something real, he just needed the right person to bring that out. Mariana was a hoot! One of the funniest heroines I’ve read in a while. Seriously, she made me laugh out loud several times! And I loved her bees!

Bad at Love is an entertaining and enjoyable read that is full love humor, romance, friendship, and steam. Halle kept a smile on my face the entire time! This book was a lot of fun and one I’d recommend to all!


“Love is our biggest adventure.”



It was her. It was always her. My kind of weirdo.
