Goodbye October, Hello November

October saw some awesome new releases!!!

Samantha Young. Emma Chase, Abbi Glines, Angela Graham & S.E. Hall, Deborah Bladon, Jamie McGuire, and Maya Banks plus so many other fabulous authors put out amazing works!!


I’ll admit, I don’t do many reviews. I’m a full time grad student and I work full time. But what I do read, I pick out myself and usually love. I’m one of those people that will put your book down if I don’t care for it for whatever reason! So here is what I did review this month:


RUIN (The RUIN Series Book 1) by Deborah Bladon



Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Kayla moves back to New York after being dumped by a guy who dragged her to Boston. So it's understandable that she is hurt and pissed and is willing to jump into a thoughtless one-night stand with a sexy man she meets on the plan. However, sometimes one night is just not enough. She suddenly finds out who he is and at the very end of the book finds out the truth...but is the truth what is appears to be or is there more to it. I immediately bought book 2 and cannot wait to start it!

Why I didn't give it five stars: If you like hot erotica, you will love this. However, I don't really care about the details of sex and they do it a lot. It got a little redundant for me. Also, it was short (I know it's a novella) but it was so rushed because of it. Even in a novella you sometimes have to slow things down and give a little more. Even an extra chapter would have been nice to so that we could see more of Kayla and Ben together, outside of the bedroom. Although I am still cheering for their HEA, I'm not completely sold on.


Ruin (Part 2) by Deborah Bladon





Part one may have only got 4 stars and up until the end part 2 was a 4 star book, then I got the cliffy! OMG I wanted to throw my kindle (in a good way) and BAM 5 STARS! Kindle throwing cliffhanger endings get 5 stars!!

I am really enjoying this series. It's a little rushed but it's a great read if you want something quick. This book definitely ended differently than I thought it would and I love it!!! I can not wait to read the last installment!!


***I have bought book 3 and will be reading this weekend!!!


Handled 1&2 by Angela Graham & S.E. Hall


I loved Paige!! Any girl who will pull a gun on a man for saying the wrong name while she is pleasuring him, earns 5 gold stars in my book! We first saw Vaughn in the novella Packaged and now we get a whole lot more of him in all his trucker yumminess! So going into the book, you may have thought “Trucker? Really? Who ever saw a sexy trucker!?” That is what I love about this duo! They are willing to do something different. When you finish this book, you will want to start hanging out at a truck stop just hoping for Vaughn to hope out of his big ole’ 18 wheeler!!! I also appreciate the authors addressing insta-love. Because it is a novella and Vaughn is way to sexy, Paige does give in. Some stories would through them straight into love, but this authors are careful not to do that. Yes, they have hot sex but the book ends with them at the beginning of a relationship. Paige is damaged! She is scared and has a thick, brick wall up. No man, no matter how good he is, is realistically able to break through that wall over night! I love that were the story ends. It is a happy ended that you just have to put faith in will last forever!

Going into November:

You can still grab Packaged by Angela Graham and S.E. Hall for FREE!!! This will end Nov 2 at night!!

It’s a standalone novella by the erotic duo and possibly my favorite by them so far! I LOVED IT!! It has awesome hot steamy sex, it has some mystery to, and it has lies and deception (but just a little). Grab it now!!
My Review: 5 Stars!!! I am going to keep this review short because I really don't need a lot of words to make my point. So here it goes: If you are looking for a quick hot read then get this book! Not only do you get hot kinky sex but you get anxious suspense! I read this book in less then 4 hours because I couldn't put it down!

So come on and meet Amelia and her mystery man!! Can you figure out who it is...and if he is a sadistic killer?????
