✯Review✯Quite Frankly(Beech Grove Series #5) by Mayra Statham

I did something over-the-top crazy! Not only did I have my first one-night stand, but it was with an older man. I even called him Daddy! I was on top of the world. A great job, amazing friends, beautiful new place all while riding the high of fun, kinky sex! 

Until I find out my mysterious older man is not only my new landlord but also my best friend’s dad. 

Quite frankly, I should walk away. I just can’t keep my hands to myself. But if you saw this Dilf, you wouldn’t want to either! What’s a girl to do? 

✯✯4 Daddy Filled Stars!!!✯✯

This is the fifth book in Mayra Statham Beech Grove Series. Man, are the guys from this town smoking hot!

Karina is a good girl. She busies herself with work. Dating isn’t on the top of her list. She’s never even had a one night stand. 

Karina sees the most gorgeous guy standing online at the coffee shop. When he buys her coffee and they have a long talk Karina does something she’s never done before. She leaves with him and finally has a one night stand that people talk about. 

Karina never thought she’d see her one night stand she called Daddy. Until she moved into her best friend Ruby’s dads pool house. Karina comes face to face with Ruby’s dad Frank Titan AKA Mr. Titan AKA Daddy. Things just got complicated for Karina. 

Frank hasn’t been able to get the girl K from the coffee shop out of his head. Frank’s has his fair share of women. But, nobody that stole his heart. Not even his daughter Ruby’s mom. 

He became a father at a young age. Frank did everything to support Ruby and make something of himself. Which he has. 

Frank can’t believe he let his daughter talk him into letting her friend move into his pool house. He also can’t believe he can’t get that girl out of his head. Imagine his surprise when he meets his tenant and it’s his girl, K. She’s also his daughters best friend. 

Frank and Karina know they should stay away from each other. But, they find it almost impossible to do that though. These two are definitely hot together. 

I really wish this was a longer! I know I say that every time Mayra releases another Beech Grove book lol. I’m looking forward to the next Beech Grove guy!!

✯Release Review✯Retribution (The Outliers # 3) by Kate L. Mary

Title: Retribution (Outliers Saga, 3)
Author: Kate L Mary
Genre: Adult Dystopian
Publisher: Twisted Press
Editor: Lori Whitwam
Publication Date: November 9th, 2018
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
With the Outliers united and the Fortis eliminated, Indra thought she was nearing the end of her journey. Instead, Asa went into the city only to be captured and the Sovereign decided to unleash the full power of their technology.
Now, bleeding and separated from her husband, facing a traitor and an uncertain future, Indra finds herself wondering if she united the Outlier tribes simply so the Sovereign could destroy them more effectively.
With vile characters, brutal conditions, and vicious creatures, the final chapter in the Outliers Saga will take readers on an unforgettable journey. Follow Asa and Indra as they fight to start a life together while facing impossible choices that will test their limits and show them what sacrifice, forgiveness, and love really mean.

✯✯5 Retribution Filled Stars!!!✯✯

I have been dying for this book to come!!! I’m very, very upset that this is the last book in the series. Bc, for me I was imagining it lasting forever lol. But, one thing happened that I’ve been legit BEGGING for...... Asa’s POV!!! Yes, Kate gave it to me and that’s the only reason I’m forgiving her for this being the end of the series. 

We pick up where we’re left off. Asa and Nyko go into the tunnel headed in Sovereign city. They can tell instantly something is off and man were they right. The Sovereign will do whatever they have too to get rid of the Outliers once and for all. 

Indra is dealing with her own issues outside the wall. When the guys don’t comeback and Sovereign take action Emori swears Asa betrayed them and attacks Indra. Luckily Indra survives and she must take action bc Emori must pay for her actions. 

Indra will not give up on on her husband, her Windhi tribe as well as the other Outliers and Fortis that have joined their fight.  When the Sovereign send Indra a trade she can’t refuse even though she knows it’s a set up she takes it. The Sovereign don’t know all the Outlier tribes have united and have a plan. 

Indra will get her husband back and they’ll fight once and for all to take out the Sovereign. When they think the Sovereign technology will save them the Outliers get an unlikely ally. The Untouchables. Together they’re an unstoppable army the Sovereign didn’t see coming. 

I devoured this book! I never know what’s in Kate’s head. Never try to predict what’s coming next bc I’m always wrong. 

Indra’s always been brave and strong. She’s been lucky first she had Bodhi to love and believe in her and then Asa. They’ve given her the strength to not backdown and let her voice be heard. As she also has her sister, closest friends and then the other Outlier heads who trust and believe in her. 

I’ve loved Asa from the beginning and I wanted his POV. I needed to know why as a Fortis man he was the way he was. Kate gave it to us and man did my heartbreak for this beautiful man. But, he wouldn’t be who he was without going thru what he did. 

Even Emori I wanted to hate. But, we knew what she’d been thru working for the Sovereign and how she conceived her daughter. My heart broke for her as well. 

I’m still wanting to see this series come to my TV. I wanna play Indra! I’ve been a follower of Kate’s since her first published book and I love every story more then the last. As sad as I am to see this series end I’m looking really forward to what’s next!

✯Release Review✯Falling for the Playboy (Bedtime Reads #2) by Kennedy Fox

Never trust a man who gets paid to take off his clothes for a living and then uses it as a pick-up line to get girls in bed with him. 

That should’ve been enough for me to call in sick that day.

I’ve worked with male cover models like him before and they’re all the same—smooth-talking, sexy as sin, egotistical know-it-alls who think they’re God’s gift to women—all traits I know to steer clear of. 

Assisting authors comes with many perks—reading on the job, using my organizing skills on a daily basis, drinking coffee by the gallons—but Maverick Kingston barges into my life and demands more than I can handle. 

When we’re forced to road trip across the country together, he pushes every boundary I have and rearranges my thoughts on playing it safe. And when he “accidentally” drops his towel, he makes it very clear what he’s offering and proves he’s packing more than abs of steel under his clothes.

Working with him was brutal, but falling for him was unexpected.
And playing by the rules will be impossible.

**This is a complete STANDALONE novel — filled with plenty of humor, steam, & romance! 18 & up only due to explicit sexual content, language, and adult content.**

✯✯5 Player Filled Stars!!!✯✯

Kennedy Fox is back with the second book in their Bedtime Reads series. It’s been so long since they released book one that I’d forgotten that Olivia was the main heroines assistant in the first book. The minute I realized it I was excited bc I wanted her story! 

Olivia’s been working as Rachel’s PA since her last boss got married and moved.  Rachel has Olivia working pretty much 24/7 and if Rachel wasn’t such a nasty, miserable and just an all around miserable person Olivia wouldn’t care. 

Olivia has set up her boss’s next book tour. If that wasn’t bad enough she learns the cover model Maverick doesn’t fly and she’s forced to road trip it with him. If Maverick wasn’t cocky, didn’t get under her every nerve and wasn’t a total playboy Olivia wouldn’t care. 

Maverick is a model. He’s got a book tour coming up for an author whose he’s been the cover model for her latest series. Being this next release is the last in the series he’s going on tour with her. Maverick refuses to fly and he’s going to be road tripping the book tour his with authors assistant. 

Maverick can tell Olivia is prissy, a prude and lives by the rules and her schedules.  He also knows this road trip will be fun. Bc, Maverick lives everyday like its his last. He won’t let Olivia run away from what could change both their lives for the better. 

I loved loved Maverick from the first page. He’s the perfect guy who got a bad rap bc of his looks. I was excited he proved Olivia wrong. 

Olivia, I liked her in book one.  But in this book I wanted to strangle her until her eyes popped out. She never ever had an issue giving Maverick crap for being 2 minutes late but that evil boss of hers nothing. She treated Olivia like her dogs crap was better then Olivia and she didn’t say boo. I just wish she’d opened her mouth. 

I’m looking forward to the next book with Presley. And, I’m super stoked to be going back  to the Bishops farm!!!

Olivia’s POV
 “Can I turn off this church music?” Maverick asks thirty minutes into our trip. He leans forward and starts messing with the knob.
“It’s nice driving music,” I argue, swatting his hand away.
“You can’t be serious. This shit is gonna put you to sleep and then we’re going to crash and die. You really want that on your conscious?”
The corner of his lips tilt up just the slightest.
“Guess it wouldn’t matter. I’d be dead.” I flash a smug smile right back at him.
“Oh I see how it is. You look all innocent and smart but deep down you have this morbidness to you.”
I shoot him a look. “You’re the morbid one with all your crashing and dying talk.” I turn my music back on. “Now no more talking about it because if I don’t get you to these events on time, Rachel will actually kill me.”
“Why you so scared of her anyway? I could fit her in my pocket. She looks harmless enough.”
Glancing at him, I try to focus on the road and shake my head. “You know she’s anything but harmless.”
He chuckles, shaking his head. “Yeah, you’re right. She’s not a firecracker like you though.”
“I’m not even sure what that means, but you can’t label me when you just met me.”
“Oh, like you haven’t labeled me already?”
“I know your kind. I’ve heard plenty about you to form an opinion,” I tell him with purpose.
“God, you’re so hypocritical. You think you’re the first prissy, stick-up-her-ass assistant I’ve met? Doesn’t mean I know you just like it doesn’t mean you know me.
He kinda has a point, but I don’t tell him that. His ego is already taking up all the space in the car.
Ignoring his comment, I focus on driving. We’re in heavy traffic and I’m not used to eight lane highways.
“You better get over,” he says.
“I’m trying.” I look over my shoulder, searching for a spot to move into.
“Might wanna try the blinker. I heard it’s a signal for turning or moving over.”
I sigh and put it on. He’s distracting me.
“Stay quiet so I can focus.”
His chuckles are the last thing I hear from him as I attempt to merge across the lanes. Finally, I make it and we coast down the highway in silence until we’re leaving the city.
“When are we stopping for food?” He speaks up for the first time in hours. I look over at him and see he’s sticking his lower lip, making a pouty face. “I’m shriveling to nothing over here.” He slightly lifts his shirt up and pats his ridiculously cut stomach.
His eyes meet mine, and I quickly look away although he saw me staring. Swallowing, I look at the GPS to see how much further until our first stop.
“We have about an hour left,” I tell him. “Think you’ll manage to stay alive for that long?”
He groans, loudly and it makes me laugh. I quickly catch myself and stop.
“You have a nice laugh. It’s a pleasant change from your short fuse and snarl.”
“I don’t snarl!” I argue. “I just like having a plan and sticking to it.”
He noticeably rolls his eyes. “Okay, Miss Priss. Letting your hair down won’t kill ya.”
“No, but your arrogant, self-absorbed attitude just might,” I throw at him, holding back a smirk.
“Well, I think that’s debatable. Most of the women I date think it’s charming.”
A loud snort bursts out of me, and I’m unable to keep in the laughter this time. “I think that says more about who you’re dating than anything. They must be desperate.”
“Damn, what a burn.” He chuckles. “Adding hostile to your personality resume.”
I inhale a deep breath, realizing that was a really mean thing to say. “Okay, sorry. That wasn’t nice. But I’m not taking back what I said about you. You’re arrogant and there’s no denying that”
“Oh well then thanks, I guess.” He smirks. “You say it like being arrogant is a bad thing though. In my profession, I kinda have to be. I’m constantly selling myself to photographers and showing them I’m worthy of being in their magazines and advertisements. If I don’t act confident and prove I’m the best guy for the gig, I’ll lose it to the thousands of other people pursuing the job.”
I think about his words for a minute. “Okay, well I can certainly understand that. But I think you’re just naturally that way.” I shrug, biting down on my lower lip so he doesn’t see right through me. He has every right to be confident, there’s no doubt about that. He’s got it all—the body, the face, the perfect white teeth and smile. His abs are plastered all over Rachel’s covers and book promo graphics. He even has that annoying muscular V that trails from his hips to down below his waistline. Annoyingly sexy. “However, that doesn’t mean you can’t be humble in other aspects of your life.”
“That’s a pretty big accustation for someone you just met. How do you know I’m not? You haven’t been around me long enough to know anything about me. Don’t you think?”
Damn. He’s right. “Fine. Prove me wrong then.”

Never trust a man who answers the door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk. That should've been my first sign. I write about guys like him for a living--sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body screams sex appeal, but his condescending personality makes him a classic f*ckboy. And I want nothing to do with that. Writing romance novels comes with its perks—traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head—but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you. Meeting him was fate, but falling for him was inevitable. And forgetting him will be impossible.
