In this dangerously sexy novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Find You in the Dark, a straight-laced college student meets a handsome but enigmatic stranger who lures her into an underground club scene, where she finds it difficult to resist temptation

Aubrey Duncan understands loss. She knows what rock bottom looks like, and she is determined to crawl back up to the top after the sudden death of her younger sister. She blames herself for her part in the tragedy, convinced that she could have done something, anything, to help her.

In her effort to gain redemption, Aubrey starts fresh at Longwood University and facilitates an addiction support group, hoping she can support someone else in the way she failed her sister. But what she doesn’t count on is an all-consuming fascination with group member Maxx Demelo, a gorgeous, blond, blue-eyed enigma who hides dark secrets behind a carefully constructed mask. He only reveals what he wants others to see. But Aubrey glimpses another Maxx hidden below the surface—a Maxx who is drowning in his own personal hell.

As Aubrey and Maxx develop an attraction too intense to ignore, he pulls her into the dark underbelly of the city club scene, where she is torn by her desire to save him and an inexplicable urge to join him in his downward spiral. Worst of all, she is beginning to love everything she should run away from—a man who threatens to ignite in her a fire that could burn her alive…

4 stars

This is a story of true love, stubbornness, secrets and addictions. This book is very well written, both POV are very clear and show what the characters are feeling for one another and the storyline is very interesting. It got me on edge for the days I was reading it and I was left with a huge book hangover afterwards, not to mention that it is a cliffhanger and the next book won’t be published until 2015.

The characters are very complex. Aubrey is a survivor. She lost someone very important for her and with that person, she lost her entire family too. She never opens her heart to anyone, she doesn’t have so much friends. She only wants to help other other people in order to fill the emptiness of her lost. On the other hand, there is Maxx. He has several faces, he shows as a confident guy, a powerful guy, the center of the universe. People follows him, people wants him. But that isn’t the true Maxx. He is lonely. He’s desperate. He’s damage. And he needs help.

Their relationship is the reflexion of themselves. It is good, because they are good, underneath. But it is also bad, because of all the wrong things about them both. I am sure they are good for each other, but they need to love themselves before going to love someone else, and loving each other is the only way they know how to love themselves.

I really want to know how their love story ends. I want to fix them. I want them together. But they need to grow up first. They need their happy ending.

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW

5 stars

Shayna Thibodeaux and Sebastian York did an stunning job in his audiobook. Sebastian has a beautiful voice and his narration as Maxx was perfect. Sad and heartbreaking. He also was sexy and confiden. He made all Maxx’s facets so well. Shayna’s narration was accurate, her voice and pace were perfect for Aubrey. I could see all the scenes in my head thank to their narrations.

532531489pizapw1403557288

In the fourth sexy romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Tangled and Twisted, Drew and Kate can’t wait to tie the knot—if they can survive the pre-wedding festivities.

For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better.

The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.

That being said, there were some unexpected incidents in Vegas last weekend that could have been a problem. It was kind of… my final test.

I know what you’re thinking—what the hell did you do this time? Relax. Let’s not judge, or call for my castration, until you’ve heard the whole story.

And hold on tight, because you’re in for a wild ride. Did you expect anything less?

BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Rogue (Real #4) by Katy Evans

rogue-9781476755618_hr

532531489pizapw1403557288

The fourth story in the new adult series that began with the New York Times bestseller Real, featuring Brooke’s best friend, Melanie, and the ROGUE she can’t resist.

Greyson King…
My boyfriend. My friend. My protector. He’s the reason I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, and the reason I fall asleep limp, worn out, and aching for his warm arms around me. When we make love, he says my name like it means something. Like I mean something.
He
Lied.
His name is Greyson King, but his alias is Zero.
There’s zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future.
He may leave no trace of him anywhere, but his imprint is in me, in my very soul–and I hate that a mere look at him commands the beat of my heart. The temperature of my body.
I’ve looked for love my entire life. I’ve waited for the butterflies, the rainbows…
Instead I’m in a free fall of emotions and there’s no one to catch me but the one man I should be running away from. The one man I thought was my prince charming.
Except this prince charming went rogue.
Greyson will stop at nothing to make me be with him. He’ll let no one stand in our way, will allow no one to threaten me, and maybe this is what scares me most of all…
What will my rogue do to keep me?

4,5 HOT STARS

Oops! Katy Evans did it again! WOW!! This book!! WOW!! So hot!! Did I say hot? No, right!! THIS BOOKS IS SO FREAKING HOT! I NEED A GREYSON RIGHT NOW!

This book made me feel anxious. I couldn’t put it down, i even woke up at 1am to finish it. The storyline is very good and I only wanted to know what would happen when she finds out about the truth. I liked how they both doubted about themselves but when they were near to each other, they could only be more sure about their relationship, they could only love and worship one another. The way their relationship started wasn’t the best, but it was hot, so i don’t mind.

When I read Real Series, Melanie was shown as a happy and strong girl, who did whatever she wanted and who ever she wanted. I liked her. In this book, I could meet the real Melanie. She has insecurities and low self esteem. Thank God she found Greyson. Or Greyson found her. I love how she is when they are together. I love how he treats her. I love how he tries to be better for her, so she can be better for him. She found the man she always dreamed of and thought she would never find.

Katy knows how to write an alpha male!! Greyson is intimidating, smart, the real bad ass. He is also very sexy, domineering, and he has a lot of kink in himself. I’d have loved to know what he thought the first time he set eyes on Melanie. But knowing everything he felt and thought when they were together and how much he loved her was the best of this book. I love a man’s POV, and Greyson’s POV is one of the best i’ve read so far.

I love the interactions with Broke and Remy. It made me wanna read their books again. I was a little annoyed about Pandora, why couldn’t she be happy for Melanie?, but her last move saved everything and for that, I’m grateful. Mel’s relationship with her parents is so cool. I like them, they are great.

Even though there is one part of the story that is missing and I’d have loved to read it, I am so happy with the end. It is perfect. I want more! Can I have more Greyson for me? Pretty please?? Amazing Book Katy Evans. You books are the best!

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW

5 STARS

The narrators, Jason Carpenter and Shayna Thibodeaux, have amazing voices. Their tones are so sexy, seductive, smooth, perfect for the Greyson and Melanie. I love listening to audiobooks because they help me transport myself into the story and when the voice of the narrator, or narrators match the character’s personality, it feels way much better. And this happened with this audiobook. When Greyson was in his secret world, when Melanie was with her friends, it was almost like watching them. Amazing audiobook.

BOOK & AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire

beautiful oblivion

532531489pizapw1403557288

The Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster phenomenon continues in the first heart-pounding new adult romance in The Maddox Brothers series.

Fiercely independent Camille “Cami” Camlin gladly moved on from her childhood before it was over. She has held down a job since before she could drive, and moved into her own apartment after her freshman year of college. Now tending bar at The Red Door, Cami doesn’t have time for much else besides work and classes, until a trip to see her boyfriend is cancelled, leaving her with a first weekend off in almost a year.

Trenton Maddox was the king of Eastern State University, dating co-eds before he even graduated high school. His friends wanted to be him, and women wanted to tame him, but after a tragic accident turned his world upside down, Trenton leaves campus to come to grips with the crushing guilt.

Eighteen months later, Trenton is living at home with his widower father, and works full-time at a local tattoo parlor to help with the bills. Just when he thinks his life is returning to normal, he notices Cami sitting alone at a table at The Red.

As the baby sister of four rowdy brothers, Cami believes she’ll have no problem keeping her new friendship with Trenton Maddox strictly platonic. But when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever—even if she is the only reason their already broken family could fall apart.

In the first installment of the Maddox Brothers books, readers can experience the rush of reading Beautiful Disaster for the first time, all over again.

5 BEAUTIFUL STARS

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK!!! Meeting Trenton Maddox was something I wanted since the moment i read what he did in Travis’s bachelor party. That was hilarious and now i know why he did it.

This book is the opposite of the saying “Nobody know what they have until they lose it”, this book is about “Nobody knows what they want until they find it”. Cami was so sure about her boyfriend, she was sure about loving him, until she started spending time with Trenton Maddox. Trent is the sweetest guy in the world. I love that he doesn’t take a no for an answer, he never gave up on Cami, in spite of she had a boyfriend. He respected her, of course. But he never gave up.

Trenton and Cami are amazing. They are great friends, and they know how to have the best time together. I love how Cami and Trent’s friendship grew stronger with the time and how they fell in love with each other, and everything in between.

Cami is a strong girl. She didn’t have the best start in life, therefore she always have fought for being better. She would do anything for her family, even if it means that she will get in trouble. She is loyal to the people she loves and most of all, to herself.

Trent is protective, possessive and very very sweet. Did i mention he is utterly hot? Oh yes, he has tattoos, he has a muscle body, he has a gorgeous face, and he knows how to please a woman. There is one thing i love so much about him: he waits until the right moment, in every aspect of his life.

The secondary characters in this book are awesome. Olive is the cutest little girl in the world! Travis is so him, of course, i love his chats with Cami. Reagan, Hazel, Coby, Blia are such a great friends. I loved every comments of Blia, and her name is based in my friend, BLIA!!! That was amazing.

I won’t give spoilers, of course, I can’t, but this book has THE PLOT, one that nobody can ever imagine. I was so in shock the first time i read the book, that i couldn’t write the review, I was speechless. Now i can tell you all that this book is amazing, it’s wonderful, it’s surprising, it’s BEAUTIFUL!

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW:

The narrator, Phoebe Strole, has a great voice. I like her pace, her pronunciation, how she makes other character voices. Her voice is so much Cami. I could felt all Cami’s emotions while listening to it.

FAVORITE QUOTES

“Did you just insinuate I’m comparable to Chuck Norris? Because I’ll take that”

“He’ll make it beautiful, won’t you?” I asked. Trenton turned on the machine, and the looked at me with a soft expression. “You’re already beautiful”

“Really? You want to get it on with Buffy and Spike next door?”

Every woman wants me–except the one I sing for.

Seattle shakes with anticipation: they call it the concert of the year. They say girls are getting pregnant just thinking about my band being in town.

But when you love a girl, you don’t leave her with nothing but a ring and a promise. Any man with half a brain should know.

So what did I expect my girl would do when she saw me again?

Well, for starters, she loathes our music. Particularly the song I wrote about her.

When I sing it, the stadium is in an uproar. Thousands of fans scream my name like I’m a god–but yeah, not her. Crystal clear: the girl’s not happy to see me.

Black hair, black boots, a bad attitude, that’s her — Pandora Stone is a freaking man-eater and she’s out for my blood.

That’s alright.

Let her come at me. Because I’m out for her heart and, this time, there’s no way she can stop me

I liked this book so much. The writing is good, the characters are cool and the storyline is interesting, it has a very good with unexpected twist. I felt so related to Brooke, her feelings, her doubts, and some of what she has been through. She’s a good girl who has dreams and she deserve to fulfill them all. The sexy and mysterious man she knows is def willing to give her what she wants. He is sexy, handsome and his ego is bigger than New York. I liked that about him. I can’t wait for the second book of this series. I need a lot of answers.

532531489pizapw1403557288

**Warning: this book contains an addictively filthy alpha male who will dampen your panties and own your days and nights. Proceed at your own risk.**

Meet Colton Drake…

I have no idea why she auctioned off her virginity for a cool mill. Regardless, I’m now the proud new owner of a perfectly intact hymen. A lot of good that will do me. I have certain tastes, certain sexual proclivities. My cock is a bit more discriminatory than most. And training a virgin takes finesse and patience – both of which I lack.

Sophie Evans has been backed into a corner. With her sister’s life hanging in the balance, the only choice is to claw her way out, even if that means selling her virginity to the highest bidder at an exclusive erotic club. When Colton Drake takes her home, she quickly learns nothing is as it seems with this beautifully troubled man. Being with him poses challenges she never expected, and pushes her to want things she never anticipated.

A sinfully seductive erotic romance where everything has a price and the cost of love is the highest of all from New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Kendall Ryan
