Addicted 2 Romance Review

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I have read every book in this series though they all stand alone. This is book #4 and it is the last book in the series. I have waited months for this book and it was totally worth the wait. Now my favorite book is Book #3 about the brother Mitchell and Jessica but this book is a close second favorite.

The premise behind the story are that all 4 boys, Mitchell, Jake, Derek and Chance are adopted sons to the woman that saved all  4 boys by adopting them and forming a family. The mother died 1 year ago and in her will reading she left a letter for each child. It includes 3 dreams they had at age 12-13 and her answer to them.

This is Derek's story about what he does with the letter and how he falls in love. This book was very dramatic. Not super hot as the sex only happens around 70-80% but very sweet and caring and I loved how Laura and Derek become close friends before anything else.

Derek owns his own motorcycle building business and he is in Vegas for his brother Chances wedding. The wives of his brothers try to matchmake and to avoid  that he runs away to a motorcycle show. That is where he runs into Laura. But Laura is leaving town in a few hours so she agrees to protect him at the wedding and they spend the night having fun.

Laura is leaving town because she saw a murder and has been told by the cops to lay low. Derek really likes her and when she refuses to tell him where she is going, he asks her to text him and let him know she is okay. This is the start of their friendship and it was very sweet and romantic.

Then fate has some surprises in store for Derek and Laura and well I beyond loved what happens next. I am not spoiling anything, you will have to read to discover what happens next. There is some drama and lots of fun and family. It is around Christmas time so there is a lot of holiday celebrating and I loved hanging out with the Walkers as they celebrate the holiday.

This story kept me on the edge of my seat but also made me fall in love with both Derek and Laura and I loved seeing what the other Walkers are up to. This was a light, fun, easy read with a little drama thrown in.

I have loved this series so much and cannot wait to see what else the author writes about next. I would love stories on Jessica's siblings.

About the Author:


Amanda Adams fell in love with books at a very early age. Her earliest memories are of sitting on her mother's lap reading Cinderella and Snow White and Rose Red over, and over, and over again until she had them memorized –- she was too young to know the alphabet.

Amanda started writing stories in big, sloppy handwriting in a wide-rule notebook when she was bored, during class (of course) in the fifth grade. Her favorite stories always include excitement, adventure and a handsome hero guaranteed to sweep her off her feet.

Amanda lives in beautiful Colorado with her husband (her high-school sweetheart who proved the reality of "love at first sight") and three teenagers whom she reminds, repeatedly… "If it's not in my phone, it's not happening," because her mind is oh-so-often far away living a fairy tale. (That's code for – if an alarm doesn't go off, she forgets to pick up her kids from school…)

Addicted 2 Romance Review

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I LOVE this series and after reading this book well you will be looking forward to the next one. This book takes the series in a total new direction and it was beyond fantastic. The end was so terrific. I just want to state that if you love the author and you are hooked on the Barringtons well you will just love this story.

This is Grant Barrington's story. He has been mentioned throughout this series as he is the financial genius and made everyone tons of money. This book also has a little Andrades/Legacy Collection in it in that Alathea and Marc get involved in this storyline and we go back and revisit what happened in the last book with Helene, Andrew, her parents and Stiles are back.


Image may contain: 1 person, text

This book/series is NOT a stand alone, each story brings you closer to understanding the plot made by Sophia's sister Patrice Andrade. I highly recommend you read them in order otherwise you will be beyond lost.

The basics you will need to understand this story is that 30 years before the Barrington's mother, Sophia (sister is Patrice Andrade) gave birth to twins, Kent and Kenzi in Aruba.  She was told Kent died and it devestated her and her husband made everyone believe she was very fragile. So the kids grew up never asking for help and feeling like they could never be themselves with their family and could never upset their mother.

Now 30 years later Sophia is no longer fragile and the kids and Sophia believe that something was wrong with Kent's birth and they have started investigating that. Each child has found out something more and in this book Grant has decided to get involved in the hunt for the truth.

He is working with Marc and Alethea from the Legacy series and Marc tells Grant he is too uppidty and needs to hang out with regular folks. Which is how he meets Viviana, and ends up getting to know her. 

I don't want to spoil too much,  but I did not like Grant at all in the beginning of this book. In fact I hated him and I have loved every Barrington before him. He was a class A JERK. Viviana was the reason I loved this book. She is sweeyt, naive and a total bad ass and I loved her.

About 60% in Grant gets a clue and starts trying to win her back and thats really when this story kicked in for me. I started liking Grant and I beyond loved the story and where it went after that. This story was written wonderfully and it went very fast as a lot happens in this story. Some parts were glossed over when I'd rather have more details like the first time Viviana meets the Barrington's but it would have made the book too long.

All in all this was a fantastic read and I loved every second of it. I cannot wait for more Barrington's.

About the Author


Ruth Cardello hit the NYTs and USA Today for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.

She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.

What Kindle Reviewers write about her:

"Wow hot at every page. Heart stoping, fear raging, mind blowing wonderful."

"I'm a true fan of Ms. Cardello. I ran on to her first book a few years back and have been hooked ever since. I could go on and on about the story line of this book, but I'm not. All of her books are total page turners, unique, heart wrenching, and I love them all. There isn't two alike in the bunch and I feel like I know the characters personally. I personally read 97 authors books. And I buy every book they put out. This author is in my top 10. Great job and keep them coming."

"Love this series. Got me to start reading again. I look forward to the next book. Thank you for giving me the love of reading back."

Image may contain: 3 people, beard and text

About the Book

Emma

From the moment I met Grayson Cole, I knew he was someone I wanted to let in my panties and maybe, even in my heart. One night, one sexy-as-sin kiss, and several drinks later, our incredible evening turns into a disaster and I’m apologizing for the vomit spatter on his fancy, black shoes. I never thought I’d see him again after that, no matter how many nights I spent wishing I would. Until a month later, he waltzes into my office as—MY NEW, HOT BOSS. I’m so screwed.

Image may contain: one or more people, shoes and text

Grayson

She was meant to be a fun f*ck. That’s all I wanted. That’s all I needed. But Emma Williams could never be just that for me. The quirky, brunette vixen challenges me at every opportunity. My desire to have her has me working for her affections, like I’ve never done before. What is this woman doing to me? Not only am I her Boss, but I don’t do feelings. There’s only one way I see this ending. I’m f*cked for sure.

EXCERPT 


Grayson

             The erotic book in my hand is barely distracting me from the stunning woman lying in my bed. Her dark, wavy hair is cascading over the pillow and the sheet barely covers her. From my chair, I have a perfect view of the curve of her back, narrow waist, and luscious ass. She groans as she moves and my cock hardens from the sound. She’s learned I have certain tastes in the bedroom. I’d never belittle or hurt a woman, but I do like some kink. No doubt she’s a little sore from the vibrator I used. If the sounds of her moans and the two orgasms meant anything, I’d say she liked it very much. My lips curve from the memory of her face when I brought it out and then again when she reached her first climax.

Reaching down, I adjust my semi into a more comfortable position. Little does Emma know how often she gives me a hard on. It’s like I’m a fucking teenager again with an uncontrollable snake in my pants that becomes alert and ready anytime it gets a whiff of her pussy.

What’s even more confusing is what I’m feeling for her. I’ve never been patient with sex. I’ve seduced, got what I wanted, and moved on. It’s been this way for years. No woman has ever mattered enough that I wanted to be patient, careful, and even considerate of her emotions. But Emma’s inside my head, an itch I can’t satisfy until I have her, all of her. With her, I want to take the seduction slowly. I’m enjoying it. She appreciates everything I do, and I find myself upping the ante just to win her affections.

Fear isn’t something a man likes to admit to others, let alone to himself, but I feel it. It’s there. I’m afraid I’ll hurt her. I want her to trust me because if she gives me her trust, I’ll have her. But, then what? She’ll be another conquest and I’ll what, get bored like I always do, lose interest? Or will it be me that burns? If I let her in, I’ll have to change. I’ll have to give her the trust I know she’ll want from me. Am I even capable of giving it, of loving someone?

She stirs in her sleep and I watch her. Emma has no idea she’s the first woman to have stayed the night with me. It’s probably why I’m up at two a.m. reading because I can’t sleep. Not with her lying next to me, smelling like sex and jasmine, and breathing so peacefully it pains me to look at her.

“Grayson,” her voice is a sleepy whisper.

I continue watching her move. The sheet falls from her breasts as she sits up and turns to face me. The question in her eyes kills me. She’s concerned why I’m not in bed with her. Stepping from the bed, she approaches. Her dark, little patch above her pink lips annihilates my remaining control over my cock.

“Can’t sleep?” she asks, her voice so sweet it breaks me.

I extend my arm and she slides onto my lap and lies against my chest, like we’ve been doing this for years. The scent of jasmine fills my nostrils and I lean against her hair, breathing her in. The touch of my hand caressing her back releases a pleasured moan from her lips. Lips that can easily bring me to my knees, if I’m not careful.

“Sorry to wake you. I read when I can’t sleep.”

Laying her head on my shoulder, she looks at my book. “What are you reading?”

“Undo This Night.”

“Will you read it to me?”

The corner of my mouth raises. “You want me to read it out loud to you?”

She giggles and the sound widens my smile.

“Yes.”

This is unexpected, but I like it. She continues to surprise me. I can never predict what Emma will do, and it’s something I adore about her. She keeps me on top of my game.

“From the beginning or where I’m at?”

“Where you’re at.”

My attention returns to the book. “I raise Tiffany’s ass in the air and slap it once, twice then spread her cheeks. Reaching for the condom I tossed on the bed, I sheath it over my cock, then rub against her pink, tiny hole. Looking over her shoulder at me tells me she wants me to fuck her hard. It’s been two weeks since I’ve seen her and by the needy look in her eyes, she knows I won’t be gentle.”

Emma’s hand reaches into my sweatpants and circles my raging hard on. Each stroke makes it harder to focus on the words.

“I slam into her tight pussy and latch onto her hips, using them as leverage to fuck the moans right out of her mouth.”

Emma pushes the book out of her way and straddles me with her knees tucked into the cushion of my chair. Her mouth slams down on mine and I toss the book to who-fucking-cares where. Lifting her from the chair, I wrap her legs around me and pull her ass up against my aching erection and move her over it.

“Grayson, I want you. I want to feel you inside of me.”

“No other men, Emma. If you’re with me, you’re with only me.”

“I don’t want anyone else.”

Laying her on the bed, she watches as I remove my sweatpants. My cock is at attention and her eyes go right to it. She moistens her bottom lip and it jumps at the sight of it. The last time that tongue touched my dick, she stole a chunk of my heart. Wicked little thing she is.

“Let me get a condom.” I move toward the dresser and she extends her legs, trapping me between them.

“Don’t need one. I’m on the pill.”

My chest tightens. Sex without a condom is something I don’t do. Fuck me, she’s got me between a rock and a soft, little pussy I’m dying to feel. I turn to her and crawl above her on the bed. “Just this once. I want to feel you come all over my cock.”

Her gray eyes are locked on mine and her mouth tilts into a lascivious grin. I close the space between us and kiss her. Spreading her legs, my dick slides across her slick pussy. She’s already soaking wet for me. I raise my hips and plunge into her.

Cock-melting heat surrounds me, she’s so tight I barely have to move to get the friction I need. Pushing in further, she lets out a whimper.

“Am I hurting you?”

“No, you feel incredible.”

“Emma, I want to give you slow and sensual, but I don’t think I can. I want to fuck you until you’re calling out my name.”

“Please, fuck me,” she begs.

Her needy plea puts me into action. One hand takes hold of her neck and the other tucks under her leg, raising it as I thrust into her hard. Every time I pull out and slam into her, I feel the blood racing to my groin. The familiar tingle is at my back; she’s spewing cuss words and calling out my name. Another thrust and her orgasm pours over me and it feels perfect.

My jaw clenches and I release into her. It’s a high I’ve never had and the moment it happens, I know I’m ruined. There’s no way I can go back to a condom with her.

Lying on the bed, she’s sprawled out across my body in a deep sleep with her head tucked into my neck. My fingers are combing through her hair and I’m watching the ceiling, replaying different scenarios in my head. Every single one ends with the same fear—one of us getting hurt.

Addicted 2 Romance Review


I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This was an enjoyable and fun read. It is pure sex, and flirtiness and is very light reading. It is a dual point of view book though the first 30% of the book is pure Emma. In that 30% I woud have loved to read Grayson's but we do not hear from him until later in the book.

This book was quirky and had some really funny scenes. Emma and Gray meet in a bar where Emmas bestie has dragged her after a bad breakup. She throws up over Gray's shoes and then destroys her cell so she cannot contact him after.

Until she walks into work and guess who is her new boss. This is a hot boss/employee romance but its not an issue for either of thm. What is an issue is that Emma just broke up with her boyfriend and she is hesitant in getting involved. As to Gray, he has never had a successful long term relationship and his father has not helped that along.

I did enjoy the book. I found the writing okay. Not the best I have read but no big spelling errors and not the worst I have read either. It is light reading and I think the characters could have been deeper. It is a HOT book with lots of sex scenes but I did not think they were HOT scenes. This author seems new (at least in writing these sex scenes or this genre) and I think with time her sex scenes will get more detailed and hotter.

Addicted 2 Romance Review

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This is my first time reading anything in this series. It is book #6 in the Billionaire's Beach Series and #3 in the series about three female butlers but having read none of the other books I did not feel lost at all, so this story easily can stand alone.

Charlie/Charlotte is the main character in this story. She has been a butler to our hero Ethan, and his son Wells. Wells is the adopted son of Ethan and his wife who passed away about 4 years before. Charlie has worked for Ethan about 11 months at the start of this book.

Ethan travels alot for work so Charlie is sorta a butler/nanny and PA for Ethan and she helps care for Wells. That means she is very involved at Wells school. Ethan at the start of this book is still loving, missing and mourning his wife even though its been awhile.

However his boss suggests he start dating and that is what starts to open his eyes up to Charlie as a woman and prospective marriage candidate. But Charlie has a BIG secret. One that needs to be confronted before she can move into any kind of romantic entanglement with Ethan.

Her secret to be honest I guessed by chapter 2. But this book is not so much about her secret but rather about letting the past go and moving on. Forgiving yourself and moving forward with your life. It is about realising that you can have a love of your life but also starting a new life with a new partner and opening your heart. Both Charlie and Ethan have to learn how to open their hearts and love and trust and its not always as easy you would think.

This book was beyond romantic. It was sweet and serious and really beautiful. Charlie was a wonderful heroine and Ethan was a very honest and caring character. Wells is a sweetheart and I loved getting to know the Archer family.

Swept Into Love: The Ryders #5 by Melissa Foster

About the Book


It’s been years since Sally Tuft’s husband died and she was left to raise her teenage son alone. And almost as long since she told the only other man she’d ever wanted that they should be just friends. Now her son has left for college and Sally has no distractions to keep her from thinking about her best friend and coworker, Gage Ryder, and what could have been.
Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they would finally explore the passion that’s simmered between them since the day they met. Tasked with opening a new youth center in Oak Falls, Virginia, Gage hopes the trip away is just what they need to finally come together.

Before Gage and Sally ever reach Oak Falls, one night at a conference changes everything, putting their friendship—and their love—on the line, and the two must decide if getting swept up in love is the beginning of forever, or the end of their friendship as they know it.

Addicted 2 Romance Review


I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This story actually starts in the Snow Sisters 3 book series and some of the sisters are featured in this book. In that first book featuring Danica and Blake, we meet Sally and her husband who is BFF's with Blake. His best friend dies making Sally a widow and single mom and Danica decides to open a community center and she hires Gage Ryder to run the center and also hires Sally.

This book also concludes the Ryder series and introduces you to the new setting and characters in the authors new series. It ties everything up nicely during the ending.

In this book years have gone by for Sally and her son, Rusty is off at college, when Gage and Sally who are very close and best friends who also love each other but who are only platonic have a fun night in Vegas on their way to a new new community center they are opening.

But for them what happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas as their drunk, one night has complications. They know they love the other but they are afraid of rocking the boat professionally as well as with Sally's son. So while they work on this new community center and are away from everyone they decide to explore what a relationship between them would mean.

Personally I did not understand the hesitation of Sally. Her son is grown and lives by himself and she deserves to be loved and OMG Gage loves her so much. That is essentially what this book is about is Gage loving and supporting Sally. Its filled with lots and lots and LOTS of sex scenes and lots of I Love You's. The real issue is Sally taking a risk on Gage and Gage proving to Sally what they could have together. It is also about Sally and Rusty moving on and past the death of Greg, the husband and father who died in the first Snow sister book.

It was well written and I loved revisiting the Snow sister characters and getting to know Gage and Sally more in depth. It is a very sweet and romantic story and I really enjoyed it. But beware its heavy on sexual encounters.




Sally Tuft awoke to a freight train running through her head and the worst cotton mouth she’d ever experienced. She lay on her back, eyes closed, trying to remember what happened last night after the conference she’d attended. Thank God what happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas, because she didn’t need her boss finding out she got rip-roaring drunk. She rolled onto her side, coming face-to-face with hot whiskey breath. Her eyes flew open and she bolted upright, clutching the sheet to her chest. Her heart pounded wildly as she took in the gorgeous sandy-haired man lying next to her. Oh shit! Shit, shit, shit!
No. This can’t be happening.
She slammed her eyes shut, trying to calm her mounting panic by breathing deeply, but that made her head hurt even worse.
Her eyes opened slowly, roving over Gage Ryder’s scruffy jaw and the full lips she’d fantasized about so many times she should be arrested. This was bad. Very bad. Gage had been her best friend and co-worker since her husband was killed in a skiing accident several years ago. And worse, he was her son’s confidant. The man whom Rusty went to with problems his father was no longer there to help him with.
Her gaze trailed over his broad shoulders and muscular chest as realization set in. She bit her lower lip, holding her breath as she lifted the sheet. Please let me have something on. At least underwear. The pit of her stomach twisted at the sight of her closer-to-forty-than-thirty, less-than-perky bare breasts, and stomach that had never quite regained its elasticity after having her now twenty-year-old son. Oh God!
Gage rolled onto his back, and her eyes were drawn to the formidable bulge lifting the sheets. Look away. Look away.
She couldn’t look away. He’d made his feelings for her clear without ever actually spelling them out. Would he mind if she looked? Oh God! I should mind! She needed to force those desires back into Ignore mode. Closing her eyes and gritting her teeth, she tried to do just that. But the urge to look was too strong, and they popped open again, drinking in every hard inch of him.
His left arm stretched over his head, coming to rest on the pillow. The other reached beneath the sheet and adjusted himself. Her nipples prickled to tight points. Now was not the time to get turned on, but she couldn’t stop staring as he sleepily pushed the sheet down his chest, revealing solid abs she’d seen a million times—but never once in bed. They were sexier than when he was playing basketball or chopping wood to heat his home. Oh God, she loved to watch him chop wood.
Her eyes moved to the other wood in sight. She heard a whimpering sound and realized it came from her. She snapped her mouth shut. She had to get out of there before he woke up and realized what they’d done.
What if he remembered what happened—or didn’t—last night? She was never going to drink again. Not in this lifetime, and definitely not with Gage Ryder.
She clutched the sheet and slid to the edge of the bed, struggling to dredge up memories of last night from the muddled recesses of her mind, but her head was spinning. At least her hangover had taken a backseat to the reality of having slept with Gage. He rolled toward her as she stepped quietly from the bed. The sheet caught beneath him and pulled from around her.  She gasped, her hands darting to cover all her private parts as Gage’s amused blue eyes opened and followed her frantic hands. A slow smile crept across his gorgeous face. She needed more hands! She yanked the sheet from the bed and turned around.
“Don’t look!” she yelled as she tried to wrap it around her. “Oh my God. Gage!”
“Sally…?”
“Don’t say a word. Wait. Please tell me we didn’t have sex. Just…” She shook her head and spun around, bringing Gage and all his naked glory into full view. For a second she was struck mute, her jaw hanging open. His thick arousal lay nestled between powerful thighs, on a manicured tuft of dirty-blond hair.
“See something you want?” Gage said with a chuckle, snapping her brain into gear.
“You’re naked!” She spun around again, breathing so hard she feared she might pass out.
“You whipped the sheet off me,” he said far too casually.
“I’m naked!”
“I see that, and I prefer you without the sheet.”
“Gage!” She huffed. “Put a pillow over yourself! Cover that thing up.”
He sighed loudly and she heard the rustling of the pillow.
“Okay, Salbird. I’m covered, but given that we’re both naked, I’m pretty sure you got more than an eyeful last night.”

I Do(n't) by Leddy Harper


About the Book

I fell in love with Holden York when I was six years old.

Most of my youth came with spiral notebooks filled with doodles, wedding plans, and “Janelle York” looped in bubbly handwriting.

However, one night in Vegas changed everything.

I woke up to more than just a fantasy of my brother’s best friend.

Five years later, I'm standing on his doorstep confronting him about the secret he kept from me.

If you think this is the story of how we rode off into the sunset together…
You’re so wrong.

But if you think this is the story of how Holden blackmailed me into living with him...
You couldn't be more right.

Addicted 2 Romance Review

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This is the story about two people who grew up together and who were best friends. Holden was the brothers best friend and 4 years older than Janelle/Jelly. When she turns 18 her brother gets married in Vegas and her and Holden get drunk and she loses her virginity to him and does not remember anything though she knows they had sex. After she hardly sees her family and runs off to college and does not see Holden again.

Now its 5 years later, she sorta dating/engaged to Conner and if they get married within a year a reality tv show will pay them $50,000. However the show has uncovered that Leddy is married, 5 years before and Holden confirmed it. They will give her the money if she gets divorced and marries Conner.

Conner and  Jelly are not in love. They have a friendship/partnership for the money. They 100% want to  marry for money and this how Jelly ends up asking Holden for a divorce. In the 5 years Holden has not seen Jelly, alot has happened to her family and he wants her to reconnect with them. So he says I will give you a divorced if you move in and reconnect with them for six months.

And that is how they end up living together as roomies. Jelly tries to annoy/irritate Holden and well Holden tries to make her jealous and see what she has lost.It was a little war of the roses and I beyond loved their one upmanship and antics.

I loved that neither were in love with the other when they meet now but 5 years before they were and in this story they slowly fall for the other. This was a very fun story where the two take a long time to have sex and I liked that they really get to know each other before they get together again.

This is a first time read by this author but I really loved her writing style and the characters in this story. Janelle is the baby in her family and there is a big age gap with her siblings and I loved that the author explored how that really impacted her life and relationships, even as an adult. If you want a fun story then you will love this story.

About the Author

At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.

She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.
 The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.

Blue Balls by RC Boldt


About the Book

What happens when the universe gets in the way of your "follow through"?

BLUE BALLS

Truth: A painful condition caused by a prolonged state of sexual arousal without release.
Myth: Only affects males.

SARAH

I’m beyond frustrated with the man who’s left me high and very far from dry. Multiple times. But, somehow, even though I’m not interested in a relationship, Mr. Tall-Dark-and-Handsome keeps me coming back for more—one crazy, sexual debacle after the next.

Come hell or high water, the stars will align, and the release will be out of this world.

JACK

I’m captivated with the woman who’s left me sixty-nine shades of blue, and she's only in this for one thing. The first time, I blew it—and not in the good way—but I’m going to ensure we finally see it through. I need to put an end to this “plague” of sexual calamities and prove to Sarah that we can have more.

It's time to grab the universe by the balls and show it who's boss.

Addicted 2 Romance Review


I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This story was beyond wonderful. I really believe you should read Clam Jam before this book as all the characters and events happen in that book. This book can stand alone but Clam Jam is terrific and this is part two of that book.

This book starts the previous year from when most of this book takes place. It starts at Ry and Maggie's engagement party. Jack/Cupcake is single and he and Maggie's bestie, Sarah/Sunshine are super attracted and decide to have a fling. But as the title of this book is Blue Balls, Jack suffers through that alot. After the fling that never happens they separate for a year when Sarah travels.

The book really starts one year later when she moves back to town. There is a lot of flirting, non dating, getting ready for the WEDDING and even a 10 year reunion and a wedding crashed and LOTS and LOTS of blue balls. LOTS!!!

Through it all commitment phobe Sarah and Jack fall hard for the other while suffering episode after episode of you guessed it....Blue Balls.

This book is very cute. Jack is a wonderful guy and Sarah is afraid of turning into her mother romantically and this book is very flirty and fun. I loved how Jack and Sarah are there for each other through everything and I LOVE their love of 80's movies.

This is not a short book. It has close to 50 chapters, a prologue and 2 epilogues. I LOVED that we get such a romantic story and really get into each others heads. I also loved how involved Maggie and Ry are in this story. This was a wonderful story and I loved every second. While it is not super HOT, it is very light reading with no heavy angyst.

Dylan. He didn’t let labels deter him from sweeping me off my feet.

Image may contain: 1 person, text

Dylan Knight wrecked me. He made me fall in love with him and then took it all away. Now I’m back, and I can’t deal. How do I pretend that he no longer owns my heart when all my heart does is scream his name?

Avery’s back and I know I have a fight on my hands. I remember every minute, every touch, every kiss, and every breath of our time together. Now I need to remind her.

Addicted 2 Romance Review

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I am a HUGE Kaylee Ryan fan..HUGE. I have serious;y loved every single book she has written and this story was no exception. She has a very different writing style in that its very heart felt but also more laid back. You won't find huge drama or or lots of action but wat you will find is a lot of character building.And this story really is written in her style. It is very character based.

This is a spoiler free romance review but I do want to mention nothing terrible happens. I kept feeling like something tragic would happen as I read this book because you know something splits them up for 4 years. I am happy to say this book is not just romantic and sweet, it also is happy.

As I mentioned the story starts 5 years before and the first part of the book is 5 years before but also takes you thru that one year, so that when the book reaches the second part of the story it is 4 years later. This is also a HEAVY young adult story so be sure that is what you like.

The story starts during senior year for 4 teens:
Harley
Brad
Dylan
Avery

and Alan who is Avery's older brother and is the boys football coach is also avery prominent part of the story.

They all live in a small town, and Harley and Brad are involved and getting more serious and they get their two best friends to hang out together and that is how Dylan and Avery start spending time together. This is very instalove as in Avery and Dylan fall hard for the other once they actually are in each others company.

50% of the book is what happens during that one year and I am not spoiling any of it but the main issue is that Dylan never plans to go to college and Avery does, in fact she is going with Brad and Harley and she has a full scholarship. Dylan's plan is to work for his dad in his auto repair shop.

I am not spoiling what happens but something does and then the story picks up 4 yers later and everyone has graduated college and is now back home. And that is when the Reminding Avery part kicks in. Dylan's job is to fight for Avery now that she is an adult. Plus throw in a wedding and I am not spoiling whose, they get thrown together ALOT.

This is a sweet story and I really loved it. It is heavy on the romance of young love and its the perfect Kaylee Ryan story.
