Review: He's So Fine (Lucky Harbor #11) by Jill Shalvis

For Olivia Bentley, Lucky Harbor is more than the town where she runs her new vintage shop. It's the place where folks are friendly to strangers-and nobody knows her real name. Olivia does a good job of keeping her past buried, not getting too cozy with anyone . . . until she sees a man drowning. Suddenly she's rushing into the surf, getting up close and personal with the hottest guy she's ever laid hands on.

Charter boat captain Cole Donovan has no problem with a gorgeous woman throwing her arms around his neck in an effort to "save" him. In fact, he'd like to spend a lot more time skin-to-skin with Olivia. He's just not expecting that real trouble is about to come her way. Will it bring her deeper into Cole's heart, or will it be the end of Olivia's days in little Lucky Harbor?

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
This is book eleven in Jill Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series.  Lucky Harbor is more than just a place to live.  It is a community of friends and neighbors that care about one another.  Lucky Harbor is also a good place for wounded souls to heal and find solace.  This is the story of two weary souls that not only find peace but also love.

Captain Cole Donovan returned to Lucky Harbor after an accident on the oil rig he worked on exploded and his best friend was killed.  He started a charter business with two other friends in their home town of Lucky Harbor.  Cole has been living, just existing for the past two years since the death of his friend and the betrayal of his ex-girlfriend.  That is until one morning while doing repairs on his boat he slips and falls in and is then nearly drowned by the woman trying to save him.  He ends up rescuing her and the feelings that surface between them are not ones that can be denied. Suddenly, Cole is alive again!

Olivia had always wanted to live in Lucky Harbor, well ever since her on-set tutor had told her about it.  When she was finally able to escape the pressures of child stardom’s notoriety, she changed her name and moved to Lucky Harbor.  She opened a business that specialized in unique vintage items and started her new life. Her life is complete and for the past two years filled with peace.  That is until her psycho mom and crazy sister pressure her to once again return to life in Hollywood. Refusing to even consider leaving her new life behind she tries to ignore their demands and keep the past in the past.  On her early morning walk she sees a man fall overboard and immediately jumps in to save him, only he’s not the one that needs saving, she is! The man that she is trying to rescue is none other than Cole Donovan, the man she has been crushing on.

Will the two be able to withstand the pressures of their past?  Can Cole put aside his past betrayals and except the gift this is Olivia?  Read this novel and find out about Olivia and Cole’s journey to find their HEA!

Review: The Basilisk's Creed Omnibus by Eme Strife

Immerse yourself in the first omnibus of Eme Strife's addictive, sexy, enchanting, and surreal New Adult series. Each page will leave you even more enthralled than the last, on the edge of your seat, and vigorously chomping at the bit for more. 

NOTE: This is NOT like anything you've ever read before. Proceed knowing you have been told. 


Moving to San Francisco was a decision twenty-three year old Elisheva Tilton thought would change her hard life in Little Rock, Arkansas, for the better. Yet, Eli still finds herself living in shambles and being constantly stressed out just to make ends meet in the Big Bad Bay. 

And the stress only piles on when the most unusual of things begin to happen around her—including the mysterious disappearance of the Atlantic Ocean—and even more so when she strangely meets the unlikely individual who would irrevocably change her life forever; a gorgeous, unbelievably sexy, and sophisticated high-ranking soul reaper. 

Rated 17+ 
This series contains graphic sexual content, violence, and strong language. Because of its explicit nature, it is intended for mature audiences only. Reader discretion is advised.

Eli is pulled into another dimension while dreaming.  She is so tired of trying to make it on her own.  When she moved to California it was to improve her life.  But Eli finds herself still struggling to make it.  Things begin to happen around her that makes no sense.  The dreams and her meeting with tall, dark and handsome is only one of those things.

~Blog Tour & Review: Left Behind by Vi Keeland & Dylan Scott~

A New Adult Romance novel
New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland and Dylan Scott
Release date 10/16/2014

left behind blog tour.jpg

He looks up and I watch his eyes take me in.  Slowly.  They rake over me, dropping from my eyes to my glossed lips down to my exposed shoulders.  Taking his time, he follows the neckline of my simple, yet body contouring sundress, lingering when he reaches my full breasts.  I’m sufficiently covered, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t aware that the dress showed off my assets well.  Tight around my chest, gathering snuggly at the waist, with a scant amount of cleavage.  Just enough coverage to still leave something for him to imagine.  And I watch his face change as his imagination takes off running.
His eyes drift down my legs, tanned now from the eternal California sun.  Momentarily he’s lost in what he sees and doesn’t even notice I’m watching him leer.  Totally worth the extra effort getting ready tonight, I couldn’t be happier at the reaction I get.  Eventually, his eyes make their way back up to mine and I arch one eyebrow, letting him know he’s been caught.  A normal reaction might be to look embarrassed or perhaps even flustered a little.  But not Zack.  Instead, he flashes me a wicked grin.  “You look incredible.”  He’s the one doing the leering, yet I’m the one who ends up blushing.

Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★
What if you found out your entire life was a lie?  You have a father, a twin sister and an aunt that you knew nothing about!  Your mother had kept everything from you and had been in constant motion, moving from place to place never settling in one place too long.  This was my life until my mother was taken from me by death and everything changed.

From the day Emily Bennett moved across the street from me with her family, I knew she was my future.  We were the perfect couple.  I was the captain of the football team, she was the beautiful, popular cheerleader and we were the envy of everyone at school.  But suddenly Emily began to change and not necessarily for the best! She was becoming that girl that thinks she is better than everyone else and unless they were part of her group she didn’t have anything to do with them.  This and the sudden mood swings had me not knowing what was up and what was down.  When Emily finally pushed too much, I left her at a party with her assurances that she had a ride home after the party.  The next morning and every morning after for the next nine months was a living nightmare for me, Emily was killed in a car accident on her way home from the party I had left her at.  Guilt and heartache cannot begin to describe my torment! My parents and friends are worried about me and what I might do because I blamed myself for her death.

I have no one but my best friend Ashley to help me during my time of grieving for my mother.  I am not eighteen yet and will be placed in a Foster Home unless my best friend can convince her mother to let me stay with them until I finish my senior year.  While packing my mother’s things and mine ready to move, I discovered a hidden birth bracelet for a baby.  Not mine but my sisters, a sister I did not know existed.  From that moment on I knew that I had to find my twin, my sister.  My mother had written a letter to be given to me at her death.  My case worker tells me that my mother had given her the letter several weeks before her death.  When I read the letter I could not believe how much my mother had kept hidden from me.  It stated that I had a twin and an aunt.  I now have a place to go if my aunt will take me and a mission to find my sister.  Life will come right I just need time to unravel my past. 

When I arrived in California with my aunt, everything changes.  I meet Zack and I am forever changed.  He is just starting to wake up from the nightmare he has been living in and he says it is because of me that he is once again among the living.  He tells me that he will help me find my sister.  Will Nikki and Zack overcome their feelings of betrayal and heartbreak? Can they find happiness even after the past is revealed?  This is a book that you will not want to miss reading!

Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….

Zack Martin
The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.

Nikki Fallon
After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.
