Deep (Stage Dive #4) By Kylie Scott

Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins' ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben's the only man she's ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn't looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.
Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She's his best friend's little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he's not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he's always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn't always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible . . . but will it lead to a connection of the heart?

Lizzy has been in the series since Book Two, Mal's story who is with her older sister Anne who has basically raised Lizzy her whole life. 
When Lizzy first meets Ben she's instantly attracted to him, but Mal and Anne warn Ben to stay away. 
Not concerned that Ben will betray his bestfriend they don't see what Ben and Lizzy are doing behind their backs. 

Lizzy and Ben become friends as such via text messaging. Nothing more. But you can't help but feel their feelings through them and when he picks her up once from a bar he warned her not to go to. So when they see each other at her sisters wedding he takes her back to her room, where the two share a night together. I didn't know any of this until reading the book as in the previous two books the characters haven't really shown that much of an interest in each other. There is a part in Jimmy's story where she storms out after a comment Ben say's, but that's it. 

I didn't like Ben after the stunt he pulled in the first novel Lick. His sister is the one that was previously in a relationship with David, but cheated on him with his own brother Jimmy. So when they find out he's married, Ben helps his sister break them apart. I didn't like him for that, it was a dick move. 

Anyway. Lizzy ends up pregnant and the news comes out in the worst way possible. It's actually Ben's date that shares the news. Funny? Yes!!
When Ben finds out he's not happy, but he wants to pay for the baby, which is another dick move. 
I never really felt the connection between him and Lizzy. Yes, I could feel the want with Lizzy, but not the why she felt the way she did because he had been nothing but a selfish dick. When she's sick and has to stay in bed with a doctor on standby he's across the country playing music and only sending her far apart texted messages. I could have screamed. If that didn't shout unemotionally Involved then I don't know what does. 

I suppose the book is about Lizzy searching for something in Ben, the truth to why he is the way he is. 
But when his sister returns and demands Lizzy sign a contract, basically paying Lizzy off all hell breaks loose. What I don't get is the fact Lizzy, not once, ever asked for anything of Ben apart from himself. Then his sister, who he's basically supported with high cost clothes and living since he become famous walks back into his life and demands that Lizzy, out of both of them, sign the contract. 

To me that would have been the end of it for me. I hated Ben before, but that took the piss. Excuse my french. 

Nothing is thrown back at his sister and all I wanted was for her to have a taste of her own medicine. 

It's a HEA but I just didn't feel it and I'd been looking forward to their story as soon as I found out they were having one. It really disappointed me. Not at all like the other three previous books where the men live and breathe their women. 


Lead (Stage dive series #3) By Kylie Scott

As the lead singer of Stage Dive, Jimmy is used to getting whatever he wants, whenever he wants it, whether it's booze, drugs, or women. However, when a PR disaster serves as a wake-up call about his life and lands him in rehab, he finds himself with Lena, a new assistant to keep him out of trouble.

Lena's not willing to take any crap from the sexy rocker and is determined to keep their relationship completely professional, despite their sizzling chemistry. But when Jimmy pushes her too far and Lena leaves, he realizes that he may just have lost the best thing that ever happened to him.

I've not liked Jimmy in any of the other books. In fact I really disliked him. It's one of the reasons I didn't read the book straight away, but then something I read made me go back to read this one. 
Bit of a late review as I read this a long while ago, but I loved it and I loved Jimmy so much, he's officially my favourite character. 

Little back track on Jimmy. In the first book where his brother David married Evelyn in the first book in the series LICK. It turned out that Jimmy slept with David (his brothers) girlfriend.
You see, Jimmy Ferris is the lead singer of Stage dive, he's obnoxious, unpredictable and used to getting everything he wants. 

After a stint in rehab he's reformed, changing his ways, all of his ways. When Lena is given the job to keep Jimmy on the straight and narrow they push at each others boundary's, Jimmy never giving her the time of day or the respect she deserves, so she never respects him back and doesn't take his shit. She just works through her job day by day hoping one day she'll wake up and he'll actually be nice. 
One the day of the funeral of Mal's mom things change for Lena. She see's the vulnerable side of jimmy, and not the hard front he puts on for everyone. It's actually what had me reading the book. I really wanted him to change. 

Anyway, after seeing Jimmy in a new light and been his rock through the funeral, holding into him and walking up with him for his speech, things begin to heat up for Lena. 
She lives with Jimmy, so being with him day in and day out starts to get hard, especially when their chemistry starts to become heated and she struggles to keep their relationship platonic. 
when her feelings are blurted out to Jimmy, he decides to help her get rid of her crush by demanding her to date, to do certain things, to push her away, but all it does is bring the two closer together and hilariously so..... 

I swear after reading Play, Mal's book I never thought I'd find another book as funny and enticing, but my God this book had it all from start to finish. I didn't want it to end. 

I honestly would recommend this book to anyone, and it can be read as a standalone, but to really get Jimmy, I'd read the other two books in the series.

Bringing home the bad boy By Jessica Lemmon

Evan Downey needs a new beginning. Since the death of his wife five years ago, the brilliant tattoo artist has shut himself away in a prison of grief that not even his work can break him out of-and what's worse, Evan knows his son Lyon is bearing the brunt of his seclusion. Moving back to the lake town of Evergreen Cove where he spent his childhood summers is his last chance for a fresh start.

Charlotte Harris knows she owes it to her best friend's memory to help Evan and his son find their way again, but she can't stop her traitorous heart from skipping a beat every time she looks into Evan's mesmerizing eyes. Charlotte is determined to stay strictly in the Friend Zone-until a mind-blowing night knocks that plan by the wayside. Now, if they're brave enough to let it, Charlotte and Evan might just find a love capable of healing their broken hearts . . .

What can I say about Evan Downey other than holy hell he's hot!!!!
Like mega hot!! 
When I first read the blurb I thought this is going to be one of those books where he fights his attraction, not wanting to move on from his dead wife, but it's not. 
I loved their friendship from the beginning. It seemed to me there had always been something there between both of them, but he did love his wife. I didn't think the two were matched like Evan and Charlotte are though. These two seemed to click. 
Charlie is best friends with his dead wife and has liked Evan since she first met him. She has her own insecurities thanks to her ex boyfriend drumming it into her head that she's worthless etc. He's a real douche by the way. 
Now living next door the attraction becomes sizzling hot, they make art together. Literally. The scene is erotic and so sexy. I've never read a scene like the one in this novel. 

Anyway, Charlotte seems to have trouble moving on from her bestfriend. Even though she's been dead four years she feels moving on with Evan would be like betraying her. 
Evan, slowly but surely finally convinces her to take that step, but her insecurities always get in the way. 

I loved the story.

Raid (The unfinished Hero series #3) By Kristen Ashley

Hanna Boudreaux has lived in the small town of Willow all her life. She’s sweet, cute and quiet. 

Hanna has a moment of epiphany when she realizes her crush for forever, Raiden Ulysses Miller, is not ever going to be hers. She sees her life as narrow and decides to do something about it. 

Raiden Miller is the town’s local hero. A former Marine with the medal to prove his hero status, he comes home, shrouded in mystery. It takes a while, but eventually Hanna catches his eye. 

After all these years of Raid and Hanna living in the same town, the question is why? Is Raid interested in Hanna because she’s sweet and cute? Or does Raid have something else going on?

I got so into this book, but just like Deacon, it was another disappointment for me, but it hasn't stopped me loving the book. It was still kickass. 
I liked both characters, Hanna more than Raid because he was an asshole most of the time. I felt like I could have smacked him upside the head LOL 
He never gave her a minute to blooming breathe lol. 
It wasn't as much as him been alpha male, but about certain things he had a go at her for. You'll understand when you read it :) 

That said, the story line was brilliant, but the ending was not what Kristen Ashley usually brings to the table. It never had no action. Hanna is attacked, there is nothing on it, it's literally her being pulled in her house and then her lay on the floor with someone talking into her face, giving her a warning. I would have liked there to be more emotion or something. Then there was Raid getting his revenge. We got NOTHING!!! Nothing what so ever. Annoyed the hell out me. I needed some action, something to make me go WOW like all her previous books, but nope, not this one. 


Deacon (The Unfinished Hero series #4) By Kristen Ashley

Deacon has an ugly history, a history that broke him, leaving him a ghost of a man. Out of necessity, he left the normal world to descend into the criminal world and found he fit. So he stayed. Cold as ice and living off the grid, Deacon has no intention to connect, not with anyone. 

Then he returns to some remote cabins in the Colorado Mountains and finds they have new owners. One of them is Cassidy Swallow, a young woman willing to work hard to live her quiet dream in a house by a river surrounded by aspen and pine. 

Suddenly, Deacon finds he’s at war. Cassidy’s pull for him to connect is strong. He fights it, but he loses, always coming back for more. But when he does, he gives her nothing. 
From the first time she sees him, Cassidy knows Deacon is dead inside. She knows he’s the kind of man who could destroy a woman. But one night when Deacon’s control slips, Cassidy takes a chance. 

He might break her. He also might be her dream come true. 

I am actually sad to say this because I am a massive Kristen Ashley fan and I mean massively HUGE fan !! But this novel was surprisingly disappointing :( *sad sigh* 
I just felt like there wasn't a story, like there usually is with KA books. I'm hoping there is another book to add on because the ending got good and not just because it ended, but because SOMETHING happened. Well, not excitedly happening, but it looked like the beginning of it. 

The book also moved to fast in the years for my liking. I felt like it was too slow for someone supposedly hot for someone if that makes sense, but it's fiction and not real so I moved passed that, I'm not one of these reviewers that pick at stupid shit like that.

I loved both the characters. I loved her vision in the novel and how hard she worked. Same goes with Deacon, I loved he stayed a mystery up until the end.

Freefall By Tess Oliver

After leaving high school, with a hard won diploma and the title of most likely to break hearts, Alexander “Nix” Pierce has left his wild, out of control years mostly behind him. A small inheritance from his grandfather has given him the funds to open up his tattoo shop, Freefall, and he has started to pull his life together. Aside from trying to keep his best friend, Dray, from killing himself in the fight ring, and his slight obsession with a pin-up model he’s never met, Nix’s life is going smoothly . . . until Scotlyn James, the object of his obsession, walks into his shop. 

Ever since a tragic accident killed her family and left her alone in the world, Scotlyn James hasn’t spoken one word. Up until now she didn’t care that she had no way of talking to people. Her awful aunt would never have listened, and Lincoln Hammond the arrogant, selfish man who pulled her from the streets of Los Angeles wouldn’t hear her words if she could speak. But when Lincoln insists she get a tattoo to cover up a scar on her side, Scotlyn meets the artist, Nix Pierce. And now she longs for her voice. Now she has found someone who will hear her.
Read on for my review ...

I fell in love with this book as soon as i met Scotlyn. Her name alone is beautiful, well the meaning behind it anyway. 

Scotlyn has lived a tragic life and hasnt spoken a word about it. 

This story is sweet, hot, romantic, sexy, exciting, and will have you on edge towards the end. 

I have read this book twice and both times it had me hooked. i loved it. This is one of those books that i cant write a review without giving too much away.

Never let go By Scarlett Edwards

Never let go

The first day of college gives every girl a chance to reinvent herself.

I go and screw mine up by meeting the most gorgeous guy I've seen in five years while talking to my cat.

But Andrew Crowner is far from judgmental. By the end of our interaction, he has me smitten by his easy manner and kind smile. And from the way his eyes linger on me before he leaves, I start to think that maybe I've caught his attention, too.

I let myself believe that luck may finally be on my side. That is, until I stumble on my roommate, and her overnight guest: Spencer Ashford.

Lean, tattooed, and sexy as sin, Spencer is exactly the type I need to avoid. I would have no trouble with that... were it not for his swift and inexplicable interest in me.

Suddenly, I go from a girl with next-to-no experience with boys to one caught in the crosshairs of two completely different men.

Andrew's interest is wholesome and sweet. Spencer's is edgy and raw. My choice should be easy. But there are always complications, and sometimes, matters of the heart take the least expected turns.
