Looks aren’t everything.
It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good… 
Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever—and that old humiliation hits hard. 
I recognize him immediately. The hottest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league.
But then he kisses me. 
And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything. 
Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months. 
Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over “necessary” tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off. 
But there’s something he’s not telling me about why he’s really hanging around, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers.
Because this is not a makeover story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale…
Um, so this book was absolutely amazing!! Let’s start with the adorable cover. It really draws you in. The characters come next, and that’s my favorite part!! Ford and Gina were perfect. Their chemistry was hot, their hearts were hopeful, and their fate to be together, was beautiful. I’m DYING to get my hands on the next book, because I need more!! Everyone needs to read this book!!

I am a hothead, a wild card, and a son to a murdered man. I crave things I can’t have and don’t want the things I can. Now I’m left to pick up the pieces—stitch our family back together with a damaged thread. This isn’t the life I envisioned. And to make matters worse, the women in our lives are testing the strength of our brotherhood. My name is Hayden Pearson. I am the eldest—a protective, but vindictive son. People may think I’m too young to fill our father’s shoes, but it won’t stop me from proving them all wrong. **** First came the Four Fathers. Now it’s time for the Four Sons. NIXON by Ker Dukey HAYDEN by J.D. Hollyfield BROCK by Dani RenΓ© CAMDEN by K Webster 
**This series should be read in order to understand the plot.**

This book was AMAZING!! Hayden is commanding and possessive and focused on exactly what he wants. He may not always be right, but he gets it eventually. This couple was explosive and intense. They are instantly drawn to each other, and you can feel it. I love this book, this series, and this author!! A definite MUST READ in my opinion!!
**you need to read Nixon (book 1) before reading Hayden**

Meth, crank, ice, glass, fire, tina, chalk, crystal or crystal meth.
Whatever you call it, it’s the same thing. Addictive.
Drugs ruin people’s lives.
I should know, they destroyed mine.
I’m Hannah and I got hooked on ice. What started as a trickle, ended with a tsunami washing everything away; my family, my life.
I’m not sure you’re ready to read my story; it’s real and confronting.
Open the book, read the pages and see how easy it is for anyone to get addicted.
Ice affects all types of people. It doesn’t discriminate.
It will SCREW. YOU. UP. 
*Dark YA/NA story- Recommended for 16+. Strong drug abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse and emotional conditioning. Contains distressing content. It will cause you anger, frustration and you'll want to hurt some characters.

B&N / KOBO / iBOOKS
This story is raw, and it will break your heart. This is not an easy read, because you'll feel every single emotion that these characters are feeling. This author know how to write a truly emotional and controversial read. I strongly recommend both this story, and this author.

I did something I had never done before.
I had a one-night stand.
Then in true me fashion, I left my phone at his house during my desperate venture to escape.
I tried hard to ignore the texts sent to my best friend’s phone...
Amethyst: Sup, these selfies are cute as shit, but your lips looked better wrapped around my…
I did NOT text him back.
I DID vow to never speak of him, or that night again...
I’m Amethyst Lily Tatum, and up until this point, I’d managed to maintain a fairly low-key life. I’m what you would call a socially unacceptable hot mess. Instead of partying, I’m skating, flipping ollie’s over guys who loved to underestimate me. Then I started college, met a wild girl who I would soon call my best-friend, had my first drunk one-night stand, left my phone at his house, and then, when I finally managed to meet my mom’s new boyfriend, I found out that my one-night stand, was now my new stepbrother.
*this is a standalone novel*
I did not expect this book to be taboo. I love taboo, so it was a pleasant surprise. I LOVED this book. Every sing character, and angsty situation. These characters were passionate, and stubborn. They were perfect. This story had suspense, and love. It was exciting, and it had me rushing to get to the next page. I couldn't put this book down, even for a second. This is an absolute must read.

Everyone knows the rumors about Violet Circle and the crazy inhabitants, but becoming a resident was my best option. These are the kind of decisions you’re faced with when you have a baby at eighteen, and your knight in shining armor turns out to be a deadbeat dad in saggy boxers.
Don’t get me wrong, my five-year-old son, Aiden, is the love of my life, even when he’s telling random strangers I’m constipated, or lecturing his preschool friends on the differences in their anatomy. I wouldn’t trade him for anything, but raising him as a single parent while cleaning motel rooms for a living is like walking a balance beam made of sand. One wrong slip, and we’re homeless.
It doesn’t take us long to adjust to our new home with all its eccentric people, and Aiden is happy here, but danger lurks right across the street. Not in the apartment of the odd woman who always wears a floppy sun hat and trench coat, or the crazy apartment full of college kids. I wish it were that simple.
Neal Chambers, the single father who is ten years my senior, sets off alarms in my head. 
Mainly because he sets off other things in my panties.

This. Book. Is. Hilarious!! I constantly had to wipe...my eyes with Angel soft, because I was laughing so hard that I ended up in tears. These characters are unforgettable, and this series just continues to get better and better. This may be my favorite one yet! I want all of my friends to check this book out, because it’s more than you would expect it to be. It’s EVERYTHING you need in a story that sticks with you like tissue at the bottom off your shoe... haha the potty humor just won’t stop!! πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

I am devious, a dark soul, and son to a dead man—or am I?
I plan many moves ahead to get the result I want.
Her.
Things may be complicated, but we were always destined for each other.
I’ll protect her from any threat and defend my interests, even if it means going against my own brothers.
My name is Nixon Pearson.
I’m ruthless and deadly, but also devoted.
People may think I’m young and naΓ―ve, but that’s just a mask I wear to fool them.
***This series should be read in order to understand the plot.***
Nixon is probably the most dimensional character I’ve ever read. I loved him, and feared him slightly. I am so glad that I was able to enjoy this story, because it exceeded all of my expectations and excitement. I am dying to read the rest of the books about his brothers, because the Pearson boys are an unforgettable force, and worth every minute! This is a perfect spin off to another amazing series written by four amazing authors!!

MY DICK CAN BE A REAL BASTARD SOMETIMES.
When he takes charge, I’ve been known to do a lot of stupid shit, despite the fact that I have a genius IQ. Case in point: How I met the woman of my dreams.
Now, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I don’t regret that moment of idiocy one bit. It may have been one of the most embarrassing moments of my life, but you know what they say about first impressions, right? Well, I can guarantee that I made quite the impression that evening. (Don’t worry; I’ll tell you all the gory details later.)
Most days, she acts like she hates me—probably because I behave like an ass— but we both know the truth: Rainey O’Neil wants me just as much as I want her—she just doesn’t want to admit it.
Good thing I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge.
Deal Takers is the second installment in the Dealing with Love world but can be read as a standalone.
These characters are nothing short of ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! I was drawn into this story immediately. The guy was hilariously persistent and absolutely dreamy. The stubborn heroine was his perfect match. This is a top read for me. It had everything you need in a love story. Angst, steam, twists, and parts that leave you giggling and gasping for air. I will be recommending this story everywhere!
This can be read as a standalone, but is book two in a series.
HEA and zero triggers

I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time! From the first sentence I knew this was going to be a book I enjoyed. I absolutely love Brody, he is a walking talking sexual innuendo and super hot, so exactly my type :) Rainey is just as hot as Brody, and together they are explosive. This book has more than just laughs though, there is some pretty angsty moments thrown in there. But really Thor is the reason I kept reading, j/k, maybe ;) This is my first book by Laura but will not be my last. Thanks Heather for telling me I needed to read this!!

EXCERPT
BRODY
“C’mon dude, work with me here. I swear I’ll be more selective going forward. GO LIMP YOU BASTARD!”
Okay so maybe taking Viagra wasn’t the smartest idea after all. Let me be clear that I don’t need it; I’m a healthy twenty-three-year-old guy. And I’m hung like Justin Bieber, only thicker. Yeah, I saw the pictures online—color me curious. But back to my predicament: My buddy swore the little blue pill is the ultimate sexual enhancer so I decided to partake. I’d like to point out that most guys don’t regularly get the chance to have a horizontal party with two hot sisters and said chance was presented to me on a silver platter. Before you get grossed out, they’re step-sisters so it’s not as weird as it sounds. And did I mention how fucking hot they are? We’re talking Pamela Anderson from the good ol’ Baywatch days. Not current Pam because let’s face it; a Susan Sarandon she is not. I mean seriously, could Suz be any sexier? She’s aged like fine wine—a vintage I’d drink like a motherfucking Slurpee. Great, now I’m thinking about banging hot MILF’s which certainly isn’t helping my boner situation. I’ve always had a thing for older women.
Anyhoo, I’m getting off track again. Where was I? Oh yeah, I’m sitting in the Emergency Room parking lot talking to my painfully hard dick. The commercials warn that you should seek medical attention if your erection lasts more than four hours. Well, here I am, EIGHT hours and TWO ROUNDS with the sisters later, with a fucking hard-on that won’t quit. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear I was being punk’d. Who would’ve ever thought I’d be complaining about my dick staying hard for too long? If you’ve never suffered this cruel fate, let me assure you; it fucking hurts. I think I may have actually broken the poor guy. He’s raw from way too much friction and don’t even get me started on how difficult it was to take a piss.
Think, asshole! Think! I close my eyes and concentrate on some of the most non-erotic things I can think of: Kittens. Grandma Ethel. Munchkinland. Damn it, that last one made me scream like a girl but my spaceship is still ready for liftoff. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise; those creepy high-voiced fuckers are terrifying. TERRIFYING I TELL YOU!
I slam my head back into the seat, take a deep breath, and groan in frustration. I rip the keys out of the ignition and slide out of my truck as carefully as possible. With the front of my shorts tented in the most obvious way possible, I stroll through the automatic doors of North Seattle Memorial and walk up to the lady at the front desk. The look of revulsion on her face as she eyeballs my pocket rocket matches my level of embarrassment.
“May I help you?” she inquires with a side order of stink eye.
“Um…” I nod toward my bulge. “I think I should see a doctor about this.”
Her eyebrows reach her hairline. “What seems to be the problem, sir?”
“My erection-way won’t go own-day,” I whisper in mediocre Pig Latin. “I took some Iagra-vay and I think my ick-day may be oken-bray.”
“I see. So, your chief complaint is that you took some Viagra and you think you may have broken your penis as a result?”
I glare at her. “Lady, do you not know the purpose of Pig Latin?”
I swear to God her lips twitch. “I’m sorry, sir, but the purpose behind Pig Latin is not in the Employee Handbook.”
“Well, it should be,” I mutter.

Six best friends. Three love stories. One big city. Countless laughs.
WITH A TWIST
West Williams has been friends with Lily since the day she moved into their building and he saved her armoire from a swift, sudden death by staircase. Their friendship has always been easy, the boundaries clearly defined. With neither of them willing to risk their relationship, they’ve drifted happily through the years as companions, never considering more. Until they do. And that realization changes everything.
CHASER
Everyone knows you should never say never. Cooper never saw Maggie coming--she was just his best friend’s little sister, the curly-haired, freckle-faced girl from Mississippi who was absolutely off limits. Maggie never expected to find her fiancΓ© banging her maid of honor an hour before she was set to walk down the aisle, but life’s funny that way. The only option to save her sanity is to get the hell out of Jackson and move to New York where her brother lives. The only downside: Cooper is there too. And she just doesn’t know if she can stay away from him — the filthy rich, dead sexy playboy who’s allergic to commitment. 
LAST CALL
Patrick Evans is no stranger to consequences. When your mother walks out, your dad drifts away. When you leave home, you’re on your own. And when you run away from the girl you love, you lose her. He finally has an opportunity to rebuild the bridge he burned with Rose, and it’s not one he’ll take for granted. But he’ll have to fight for her, even if it hurts. Even if it means he’ll walk away brokenhearted. Because deep down, he knows that she’s it for him. The trick will be to get her to admit she feels it too.

WITH A TWIST
Another friends to lovers story. I am not a dancer, so I usually steer away from books about them. I just cannot relate. That being said, I could not put this book down! This story shows us that the grass is not always greener on the other side. It always shows us how what we truly need, might just be right under our noses the entire time. I loved this story. It was an excellent series starter. I need more! I will be recommending this book. Absolutely!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
CHASER
She suffers heart break at the most incovienant times imaginable, and he was there for her. She needs a new start with no distractions and his playboy was fits the bill. As long as feelings are not included. She's his best buds little sis, and completely off limits. This story really writesnits self, but I am glad Staci Hart is the one behind the pen. Everything she writes s gold. This story surpassed the first! It just keeps getting better. I will be suggesting this title!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
LAST CALL
This is a second chance story. I first met rose in the book Wasted Words. This is the events that happen directly before. It was fun to see how she came to be at the point she was in the spin-off. They hinted to this story through out that story. When he makes a dumb mistake, she finds it hard to forgive and forget. The problem: they share the same group of friends and are constantly around each other. He wants her back, and she's done. It was fun watching him fight for her. That's ultimately what we all want. A guy to fight for us. This story delivers, 100%. It was a great ending to a trilogy, that I want to keep going, and it does. In the form off a Spin-off. I love that Staci Hart throws Easter eggs at us. Its adds for an amazing and entertaining read. This is going on my list of books to share!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

It should have just been a simple vacation, away from everyone and everything to clear my head. But I soon realized I wasn’t alone.
He stalked me, hunted me. I should’ve run faster, tried harder. But the truth was I liked him chasing me.
Wolf was a ruthless man, his way of living barbaric. Now he had me in his off-the-grid cabin, what he deemed my new home. I was his new wife, would have his babies.
I was his irrevocably.
I shouldn’t have felt arousal. But I did.
He’s not going to let me escape ... but then again, maybe I don’t want to.
Warning: This one has bite to it—even if it’s NOT paranormal! As per the usual ... it’s short and fast, pretty unrealistic, but it gets right down to the juicy bits. It’s one of those stories that will have you wanting to find your own Wolf in the woods.
I love fairytale retellings and this promised to be a super short and sexy read so I was excited when it arrived on my kindle. But I found myself a bit disappointed. There was little to no story... which I expected as a sexy short retelling and was totally okay with, but there wasn’t any so-hot-I-need-to-fan-myself moments either. In fact the only sexual encounter in the book falls beyond short in my opinion. It’s like when you’re with a guy who not only has an issuing with lasting more than a few seconds, but also doesn’t take the time to get you there as well. And this really saddens me. This had so much potential, unfortunately this just wasn’t anywhere close to being what it could have been. If you are going to compromise story length and plot there needs to be an offering of something in return, in this case and as believed from the blurb lots of super sexy and highly erotic sex, but that just was not the case.
2.5 star rating.
