Review: Broken Knight

Broken Knight Broken Knight by L.J. Shen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Final Score - 5+ Stars!!!

I thought I was ready to read this book. After the author announced the release of the book I was eagerly waiting - with bated breath and anticipation for it to hit my kindle so I could delve right in again to my favorite group of people in my favorite fictional (sorta) town in the world.

My heart and head were nowhere near prepared ... I will never be the same afterward either.

From the moment it hit my kindle, I was consumed with the story. These characters are written with such captivating, raw, intense, addictive and deeply emotional life experiences - it's hard to imagine that they are fictional at times and not walking, talking, breathing actual beings on this Earth. From Chapter 11 onto the end of the book, was the emotional dam for me - there was not a chapter afterward that I just did not ball my eyes out. That's how affected I was by the words on the pages. When I writer can get those emotions out of me - you've hit the jackpot.

I knew coming into this book that it would push me to these emotions - given the subject matter.
The author was upfront about that. But what I didn't realize is that in reading her works, I desperately NEEDED to read this particular story. It's affected me in ways I didn't know it would. It has inspired me with being able to forgive people who have hurt me, find hope in building myself up, and motivate me to live and enjoy life fully.

I knew Knight and Luna would break me - and they did, so many times. But what I love about them is their fierceness and their connection to one another. They stumble, the fall, they hurt, they lash out, but in the end - they are each others greatest strengths and each others weakness. They just had to work out the kinks and decide how they were going to let that affect them going forward.

LJ Shen has created a vivid, stunning, poignantly crafted masterpiece, but has taken it one step further with Broken Knight. There are few authors in my opinion who write unforgettable books. Once you read this one - there will NEVER, ever be a time you remember an author's work more than this book or it's writers name. I am still overwhelmed with emotions, even after having just finished reading the book not 15-20 mins. ago.

A standing ovation or an aria? You decide. After you read Broken Knight by LJ Shen!

Review: Indulge Me

Indulge Me Indulge Me by J. Kenner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Final Score - 4 Stars !

I love revisiting Nikki and Damien, especially since we read them. They were going thru a rough patch - their precious baby girl had been kidnapped, Nikki fell victim to her demons and cut, and Damien (self proclaimed King of the World) was powerless to help. Since then, Nikki has been fearful and sticking close to the girls & home. Damien, seeing his wife's suffering, decides that he needs to take back control - as only Damien Stark can do - but in the best way possible. He quickly arranges a getaway trip to Paris - both business and pleasure trip - pushes Nikki past all her boundaries, even some of Damien's as well. It was just what was needed to set their world back to order.

A perfect taste of Damien, Nikki and some kinkiness to take me away for an afternoon ... or two or three.

Release Blitz for ALL GROWN UP by Vi Keeland !

A Standalone Contemporary Romance
#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious.  Young, gorgeous, successful, smart.  Did I mention young?  If I did, it bears repeating.  Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started.  My best friend decided I needed to start dating again.  So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date.  Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration.  The profile wasn’t supposed to go live.  Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to. 

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging.  He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends.  But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart.  I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.

My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar.  When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties. 
But…he looked so familiar. 
As I got closer I realized why. 
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home.
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man. 
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me. 
Which I did.  Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?
