Review: Beard Up

Beard Up Beard Up by Lani Lynn Vale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've been waiting for this story, I along with so many others have been speculating and trying so hard to figure out who Ghost is, and now I know.
I afraid I can't describe this book without giving a name or something significant away so I'll just say it's by far my favorite in this series and the history that's put Ghost in this position is heart breaking.
That being said I was also near tears finding out who he was an that he was alive and had been, I was torn between happy tears for him being alive and utter sadness for what he'd been through and would continue to struggle with to keep those he loved safe.

I highly recommend this series and I suggest reading the series in order. There's so much you'll miss if you try to jump into the middle of the series!

Review: Numb

Numb Numb by J.M. Walker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Let me start by saying I absolutely adore both the series and the author, that being said what in the ever loving hell were you thinking playing with my emotions like that?
Every book in this series will give you the feels but this one takes the cake.
Max's heartbreak is unimaginable, and Dale Lord I wanted to beat him senseless.
There couldn't be a better title for this book, Numb is exactly what I wanted to feel and Max felt.
Each book in this series is better than the last, the depth of the characters grows exponentially as does your emotional connection to them.
I want to give this book so freaking many stars but five will have to do.
This series should be read in order from the beginning to completely enjoy and understand the books.

Excerpt

“Michael,” I said dumbly, like a big dumb idiot. “Wh-what are you doing here?”
Michael Whitfield was the kind of handsome that made me twitchy. It was easier to ignore when I’d been a whale of a pregnant person and he oh-so-kindly informed me that I held no appeal whatsoever to him because I was on the verge of single motherhood. Okay, fine, that wasn’t exactly what he said, but he’d been pretty clear that our relationship was platonic.
He smiled down at me, all straight blinding teeth and dark, scruffy face, the white t-shirt he wore underneath a dark gray hoodie stretched across his leanly muscular chest in a way that made me feel a little sweaty. “I’m the cavalry.”
“You are not.”
His eyebrows lifted at my snappish response, but no, no, nope, all the no in all the world. “I was with Julia when she got your text and they already had plans.”
I shifted Jacob in my arms and he peered around me at the tall, handsome man currently annoying his mommy. Well, he wasn’t annoying me, exactly. But I was annoyed in general and now Michael got to be my scapegoat. Yay for him. “Why didn’t she tell me that?”
Piper waddled over and gripped her chubby hands into Michael’s dark jeans. I was just about to apologize when he leaned over and picked her up with the kind of ease that had me speechless.
Effing speechless.
Me.

Release Blitz - #MomFail Anthology




Title: #MomFail
Authors: Various
Genre: Comedy Anthology
Release Date: July 25, 2017



Blurb

Everyone just stop for one bleeping minute so we can all get real with each other. Being a mom is some tough $#!†. You're constantly wearing questionable substances that make you ask, "is this chocolate or ... oh, crap ..." and your purse is merely a receptacle for three-week-old snacks and broken crayons.

Let's be honest ... even when we're doing this “mom” thing right, we're somehow doing it completely wrong.

Pardon us while we dust off our collective Mother of the Year trophy and proudly present you with an epic anthology of #MOMFAILS.

*Stories inspired by real life (unless you’re a cop, then it’s all complete fiction). Names and situations have been changed to protect the guilty (and by guilty, we mean the moms). Because motherhood is a battlefield and we're all just trying to survive by any means necessary. 


Featuring this amazing lineup: Alissa York, A.M. Willard, BL Berry, Carina Adams, Claudia Burgoa, Crystal Burnette, Dylan Allen, Faith Andrews, Gia Riley, J.A. DeRouen, Kate Anslinger, Leddy Harper, LK Collins, LL Collins, Marie James, Piper Rayne, Riann C. Miller, Shari J. Ryan, Stephanie Rose, Stephie Walls, SM West, TL Swan, Teresa Michaels, and foreword written by: Nicole Kane Knepper
