{ READ...LOVED...REVIEWED....From A Distance by LM Carr }






From A Distance
LM Carr
5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What a touching story about loving someone from afar and wishing that she could be yours.

From a Distance had my emotions all over the place. My heart physically hurt for Karrie and what she went through. It broke for Tyler too because he wanted something that was just out of reach so all he could do was watch from a distance.

So much could be said but I would also be giving away way too much info and I don't want to spoil it for anyone.  L.M. Carr tells a beautiful story about loss, heartbreak, deception, love, redemption and more in From A Distance.  A truly touching story about ultimately getting a second chance at love when you realize everything you've known previously was a lie.

I loved this book and recommend it to anyone who is looking for an easy going, sexy, romantic read.  


-----------------------------------------------------

I truly loved this book.  It was such a touching story and I highly recommend it.

~ Blurb ~


After an intense whirlwind romance, Karrie Parker thought she had it all: a sexy husband, a loving family, a great career and a beautiful home.

Together they lived a life fit for royalty.

But when tragedy strikes, Karrie is devastated and left to face the consequences of her husband’s deepest, darkest secrets. Discovering the strength to carry on while making important, life-changing decisions, she finds herself desperate for answers. And holding the key to the puzzle is the one man she loathes immensely.

For up and coming motorcycle drag racer Tyler Strong, keeping painful secrets was never part of the plan. Racing motorcycles and winning was all he ever wanted to do. But when his best friend’s lies begin to unravel, Tyler is sent into a tailspin when he’s forced to come face to face with the one woman he vowed to stay away from. The woman he refuses to speak to, the woman he avoids, the woman he watches…from a distance.


As the truth becomes clear, will destiny bring these two unlikely souls together or tear them apart forever?

BLURB:
Rules were made to be broken. Until I broke the wrong ones…
*** Jackson Reed knew the only thing harder than his head was the insatiable one between his legs.
Sandwiched somewhere between following the law and his own instincts, he made up his own rules in the game of “private investigations”: his sacred version of the Holy Trinity.
Sex.
Career.
And more sex.
He towed the delicate line between the “three” until Penelope Castalano—a former flame he equated to the plague—re-enters his life…and obliterates it. Fresh from Paris, his best friend’s attorney broke the only deal they’d ever made, sauntering back onto the Manhattan scene at a costume party with more to hide than just her face.
And now one fugitive best friend and two broken promises will ignite a new Holy Trinity in Jackson’s hazardous life.
Caught in the midst of a government coverup that compromises everything he’s ever cared for, Jackson will discover that certain scandals never die.
Only their victims do.
And he’d better make damn sure that he and Penelope aren’t next…












EXCERPT:
I couldn’t breathe.
And it wasn’t from nervousness. Not from fear or anxiety or even the all-consuming dread that I felt the minute I heard sounds around me.
I couldn’t breathe because someone was quietly crushing my windpipe.
I thought the coast was clear. I walked back into the center of the room and into a pair of hands that were as strong as the Jaws of Life. A voice, barely more audible than a breeze, washed in heavy breaths across my frightened face.
The breaths were cool, disturbingly even, and had a sweet smell tinged with the scent of whiskey. Surprisingly pleasant, it was the only thing my terrified mind could process.
Maybe because I knew that it would be the last thing my brain would ever remember…
I tried to speak, but the sound of my voice died in my throat.
The man let go of my neck, and embarrassingly I sputtered. It was actually easier to catch my breath than I expected, like a faucet of air that had been turned on within my lungs.
I breathed deeply as I tried to take a step backwards, and I wondered just who the hell this man was to have done what he had done. And though I couldn’t see his eyes… I knew he was silently daring me to even think about walking away from him.
And was that… was that a Bat suit that he was wearing…?

{ READ...LOVED....REVIEWED....Fighting With Faith by Nikki Ash }











Fighting With Faith
Nikki Ash
5 stars


You meet Bentley and Kayla in book one Fighting For A Second Chance and come to love both. In Fighting With Faith your love for them grows stronger.  Bentley is the guy that every girl should want. He is caring, loyal, passionate, an occasional pain in the @ss (but aren't all men at times) and sexy as all get up. Kayla is the strong chick who on the outside acts strong but on the inside she isn't all put together. 


How do you combat against one who doesn't believe in love but you are 100% all in and are sure she is your soul mate and were meant to be together? The struggle is real for Bentley.  Fighting With Faith takes you back and forth between the past and present and how Bentley and Kayla's story came to be. (I loved learning the behind the scenes stuff that may or may not have happened in Fighting For A Second Chance.  You don't necessarily need to read book one to enjoy this book but I do think it would help out certain aspects of it.) Bentley and Kayla are definitely polar opposites in almost every aspect but the heart knows what the heart wants.  There relationship or lack of is put to the test numerous times.  I had the need to scream a time or two but I think I held myself together.

Nikki Ash has once again drawn me into a world I wish I was a part of. This book like the first captured my heart and pulled me in all sorts of different directions.  I highly recommend this book and loved every minute of it.


Ummm....when is Caleb's book coming? I almost screamed after reading the extended epilogue...ugh you are seriously killing me Nikki Ash.

✿ FIGHTING WITH FAITH SYNOPSIS ✿


Growing up, my parents were the embodiment of love. The perfect example of soul mates. And with that ideal I couldn't wait to find my true love. 

What I didn't realize was that just because you love someone doesn't mean they are capable of loving you back.  


The day I met her my entire world shifted on its axis and I knew she was the one. The problem was, how do you convince someone they are your soulmate when they don't even believe in love? There was a time I believed that love truly conquered all, but now I'm losing Faith.
 

*****
My mom once said, "Love isn't concrete. It's an emotion and emotions are abstract. They change. You don't make decisions based on something abstract because if you do, you are setting yourself up for failure." 


I didn't understand her words at the time. I was young and in love and if you had asked me to define what I was feeling it would have consisted of words such as affection, warmth, happiness, butterflies, happily ever after.


Now after experiencing heartbreak firsthand my definition of love is a bit different. It consists of words like messy, heartbreak, waste of time, unrealistic, fake. 


Until I met him. He reminded me of all the words love felt like before my heart was broken. He wanted to show me the beauty in the abstract but all I could see was the concrete.

{ READ...LOVED...REVIEWED...Carter by Brie Paisley }








Carter
By Brie Paisley
5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Oh my...Oh my...Oh my...

Why haven't I read Carter sooner?

I have never been disappointed with a book by Brie Paisley.  Carter just cements my point in place.  I LOVED this book from the beginning to the very end.  If I didn't pass out at 1am the book would have been devoured in one day.  Just loved Carter and Shelby's story.

At the beginning of the book you learn how Shelby and Carter met and then are brought to the present time where both have gone in separate directions.  Hearts were broken in the past and time moved forward but can love survive through it all between two who were meant to be together.  

Deep down I believe in fate and that it steps in at a time when people truly need it.  In Carter, I think fate played a huge part in Shelby and Carter's story.  This book is emotion packed and had my heart breaking at times for both Shelby and Carter but rejoicing at others.  

The Harlow Brothers also help make this book a 5 star read.  The Harlows are a close knit Family and you feel the love they have for each other.  Carter, Caden, Cason, Clark and Caleb (wow a lot of "C" names to keep track of) are also very close and have each other's backs.  The comradery between them is strong and they have a great bond with each other.  I can't wait to get the rest of the Harlow boys stories.  And I will just put this out there now...I am claim Caleb - I love a quiet, shy boy 😉.

Brie Paisley, I loved this book and fell in love with each of the characters you have created.  I love when I am so engrossed with a book that I wish I was right there with them.  Can't wait for the next book!


If you couldn't tell I f'in loved this book - one-click it today! You won't regret it! 😍

Carter
She was the one for me.
The one that I knew would be mine forever until I made the biggest mistake. I pushed her away and I’ve regretted that decision ever since. I’ve tried to move on, tried to put the memory of her behind me, but she’s always consuming my thoughts. Now, she’s back in our hometown, trying to rebuild a new life. I know she’s keeping secrets. She tries to hide them from me, and I will do whatever it takes to prove that I’m the one she needs. Because Shelby Ross is the other part of me that I can’t live without and I refuse to let her go again. 



Shelby
He broke my heart.
I never thought I would be able to pick up the pieces he left behind. When he let me go, I ran away from it all, thinking it was the easiest thing to do. But, running has a price and I’ve paid it in full for years. Now, I’m back where it all began, back to putting my life together and starting over. It should’ve been easy, but Carter Harlow is reawakening long buried emotions that I thought were gone. He wants to make me his again. I can’t let that happen. He ruined me, broke me, and I’m afraid I’ll never survive it a second time around.

{ Out of Love by R.C. Boldt ~ Review Tour }





Synopsis
Foster Kavanaugh, former Navy SEAL, knows what it’s like to be the top dog, the man in charge, the one calling the shots. Now that he’s running his own security consulting firm, not much has changed.
Except the curvy blonde he hired as his office manager.
Noelle Davis has been through the damn ringer. Swearing off men after escaping a toxic relationship, she’s grateful for a fresh start—new job included. Except her job isn’t tranquil and calm. In fact, it’s quite the opposite because her boss is the most infuriating man on the planet.
And, not to mention, sexy as hell.
Foster has limits. Rules. No attachments allowed because he doesn’t do love—and Noelle Davis foiled that plan and took a red pen to his list of rules. With her smart mouth and quick witted banter, he found the woman beginning to creep past his defenses.
When circumstances put Noelle in a perilous position, the first person to come to her rescue is none other than Foster Kavanaugh. She gets to see the man in action—not as her aggravating boss, but the man who will stop at nothing to keep her safe.
The same man who makes her want to reconsider her self-imposed embargo of men.
The man she wants to get to know now that she’s seen another side of him.
The man who makes her want…more.
But is more possible when you're OUT OF LOVE?

Review By Within The Pages Book Blog

Out Of Love -
By RC Boldt
5 Stars

R.C. Boldt, Out Of Love was amazing. I fell in love with everyone all over again - Foster and Noelle especially.  The dynamic of the group of friends is indescribable and I wish my friends were half as fun and compassionate as the characters in your books.

Foster and Noelle had me in tears the entire book - not from sadness but from laughing. The banter back and forth between the two was hysterical. Talk about major sexual tension. Then bring in the friends teasing the two and I was done. I had a smile on my face from page one until the end - even when Foster was being a pain.

Both think they aren't good enough for each other. One's past comes creeping back into her life while the others past/memories won't stay away. Can the two come together and help each other move forward?

I definitely 100% recommend this book and the series (if you haven't read it yet).

P.S. Is Kane getting a book....I think he really needs one. Just saying :)

{ READ...LOVED....REVIEWED...Staying Grounded by Marianne Rice }









Staying Grounded
By Marianne Rice
5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Oh my, my insides went all gooey with this book.  Graham is totally sexy, a smooth talker and oh so sexy. I just couldn't get enough of him.

Marianne Rice is a brand new author to me. I am so glad I found this book Staying Grounded.  From page one I was once again drawn into a world I wish I could be a part of.

The book's title to me says so much about what it is really about both figuratively and literally.  Graham is a pilot who gets grounded after a situation in the airport and goes back home to get away from the media and to seek the clearance he needs to get back in the air.  Maggie is a therapist who was hired by the airlines to talk to and clear Graham from his "anger issues".  When the two meet the chemistry between the two can not be denied.

Both Graham and Maggie have issues with relationships and commitment.  Past experiences have been what holds them both back.  Will they be able to get away from the past to move forward? Get your copy to find out.

Staying Grounded is a sweet romance with a side of hot steamy sex - I especially loved the office scene...just damn Maggie...that's all I'm gonna say.  Great job Marianne Rice I loved the story of Graham and Maggie to pieces.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------


~ BLURB ~

Graham Riley enjoys the laid-back freedom of a pilot’s life—until one choice puts his career in jeopardy…

Graham loves his job—it allows him to escape his troubled past and the stigma of being a murderer’s son. But after an altercation with a drunk passenger is posted on social media, he's forced to go on administrative leave until his name can be cleared. To get his wings back, he must attend anger management classes, and to avoid the media frenzy near his home base in Texas, he heads to Rocky Harbor, Maine. 

Responsible therapist Maggie O’Fallon wants a stable relationship with a man who’s not going anywhere…

Maggie grew up with parents who were never around, physically or emotionally. Needing steadiness in her life and in a relationship, she only dates men with normal jobs. But when Graham walks into her office and flashes his charming steel-blue eyes at her, she's at a loss for words. Torn between her ethics and her heart, Maggie asks Graham to see a different therapist so they can explore the chemistry between them. 

He has everything she’s been looking for—except stability… 

Maggie touches something deep within Graham and he panics, pushing her away, too scared to face his feelings. But when a private investigator threatens to discredit not only Graham, but Maggie’s practice as well, he is faced with two choices. Fight…or take flight. 

Battling a lawsuit and his heart, Graham must decide what’s more important—the life he thought he wanted…or Maggie. Maggie might be the only thing that will ever help Graham

Stay Grounded.
