My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've really enjoyed every book I've read by this author and this one was no different. That it could actually happen kept me on the edge of my seat seeing where the author would take us. My favorite part was how strong she portrayed her heroine.

While I must admit I haven't read every story in this set yet I couldn't wait till I finished them all to say how much I loved the ones I read.
One Broken Promise by Deanndra Hall while it's a hard story to read it's one you do not want to miss reading as it is a true to life story and has a great message along with a great story
Ciaran by Seraphina Donavan is a great addition to her Bourbon and Blood series which being from KY myself I'm a huge fan off
I'm off to read the rest and expect great reads as I'm read other books by the rest of the authors and have enjoyed them

I'm done with this set now and I have enjoyed all the stories in it. While I must admit I loved some more than others all of the authors did a great job of engaging my interest while I was reading their part of this set. All in all a great buy so don't miss out

Bedding the Billionaire (Legacy Collection, #3)Bedding the Billionaire by Ruth Cardello
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One thing I love about audio books is revisiting a series you so enjoyed but it's been a while since you read then. While I didn't like this as much as the first two books in the series I still enjoyed this story and loved getting more of the characters we had fallen in love with
The narrator does a great job bringing the story to life

Power Play Power Play by Sophia Henry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While this was the fist book I've read by this author it will not be my last. It was a hockey story but it wasn't it was a life lesson story. Take two people that are good people but when you put them together they become great people. That is what this story is all about. I loved how much this story touched me.

She took a piece of my heart

I normally only blog about books on here but I needed somewhere to get this out so here I go On Friday February 5th, 2016 I had to take my oldest dog Abby to the vet. What I thought was an UTI turned out to be cancer and a massive infection. With her age, she was almost 14, the best course of action was to put her to sleep. I wasn't ready for her to leave me yet and I miss her terribly. My husband said to me yesterday "We have other dogs why are you still so sad today?" Well this is why. She was my baby and I believed her to be in excellent health for her age. I'd never actually known a dog for as long as I had Abby I saw her the day she was born as we knew her mother. She was my companion and willing went places with me so I didn't have to go by myself, would always wait patiently for me in the car, no matter how many stops I had that day. Her favorite thing to do when she was younger was to play ball and I remember throwing ball with her till I just got to tired and had to make her rest for a while. It's amazing how much they grow under your heart and when they are gone you don't quite know what to do with yourself when you don't have them to greet you when you come home after a day of work. My husband bought Abby for me about a year after we got married when we decided due to health issues not to have kids so she really was my baby. I know she is better off and not hurting anymore and is free to play ball again but why can't they live longer as it hurts to much when they pass. I will get another dog one of these days but right now I'm waiting for my heart to stop hurting so much. I'm also deciding what shade bush I want to put on her grave site so I can always have a beautiful memory of her. Rest in Peace my brave girl, you are missed and thank you so much for all the joy you brought into my life in the time you were here with me. I always knew I had you to listen to me on my good days and my bad days. You were very much loved. RIP AbbyGayle June 2002 - February 2016

Rachel :)

Talk about an awesome story. I loved the additions added here and there. Rachael and Dean are an outstanding couple. Rachael used to fly helicopters in the Marine's and Dean is a cop who understands her and makes her realize she is worth loving
The LNF Series by JM Madden is one of my favorites and I've been patiently waiting for her to write me a woman vet and she did not disappoint me at all. I must say one of my favorite scenes was The Pink Palace as I know the background story behind that :)

Casia Leo's Anti-Romance Cover Reveal

We're excited to share the cover and first chapter of Cassia Leo's upcoming release, Anti-Romance, with you today! Anti-Romance is NOT a romance. This is a hilariously screwed-up stand-alone novel love story. This is a book you'll definitely want to grab in paperback; the cover will be completely colorable! About Anti-Romance: Laney Hill is screwed. On the bed. On the treadmill. On the hood of a BMW. And on her boss’s desk. Then she’s screwed again when she steps into the free clinic and finds out she has gonorrhea. That dirty prick gave her gonorrhea! She’s totally going to break up with him...until he breaks up with her...because he’s married! A night out drinking with friends leads to a fateful--yet awkwardly-sloppy--kiss between her and her best friend George Bratton. George has been single and pining for his ex-girlfriend ever since their breakup two years ago. When his ex invites him to her destination wedding in London, self-destructive George and gonorrhea survivor Laney make a deal to go as each other’s dates. It will make great material for Laney’s “Anti-Romance” blog and maybe it will help George finally get over his ex. Nothing could possibly go wrong, right? This is a stand-alone novel. Add it on Goodreads: ANTI-ROMANCE CHAPTER 1 – EXCERPT Copyright © 2016 by Cassia Leo. The tip of his erection was pressed firmly against my opening, a rock hard promise of the pleasure to come. This was the way he loved to tease me, right after making me come with his masterful tongue. He knew I needed him inside me. Needed to feel his girth stretching me. Needed to feel the closeness of his sweat-dampened skin pressed against mine. But he wasn’t going to give in so easily. First he would draw out the anticipation, until I was begging for him to fuck me. He would kiss and caress my body until I was forced to beg for it, until I reached the point of no return, where even the slightest touch would set off a chain reaction inside my body; a domino effect of nerve endings firing through every inch of my body, cascading uncontrollably toward my center, concluding in a mind-numbing, thigh-quaking, chest-rattling climax. Then, and only then, did he plunge into me with the force of an armada crashing upon the shores, ready to plunder the land for all its riches. I, the willingly-pillaged maiden, could only cry out in unbridled ecstasy as he took everything I had. Every moan. Every scream. Every drop of passion coursing through me. When he finished inside me, his dying erection still twitching in its final death throes, he draped his body over mine as I lay back across the hood of his BMW. Mouth slightly hung open, his breathing heavy on my damp skin as his lips pressed against my neck. Each breath he exhaled sent a gentle shiver coursing through me; goosebumps sprouted over my skin as he lightly stroked my outer thigh with the backs of his fingers. “You’re so fucking gorgeous,” he murmured in my ear. Though Rick had said these words a thousand times since we began dating two months ago, I still reminded myself not to believe them. I wasn’t gorgeous—not by his standards or anyone else’s. Maybe I could be described as “cute…if she lost a few pounds, got lip injections, and used a curling iron on those limp locks every once in a while.” No one—other than Rick—had ever called me, Laney Hill, gorgeous. But what I lacked in the looks department, I more than made up for with a firm grip and a “fiery spirit,” as my former women’s studies professor used to call it; or, as my best friend liked to call it these days, my “unbridled cynicism.” My best friend, George Bratton, was a serial monogamist and—God help him—a hopeless romantic. His shortest romantic relationship lasted more than a year. My longest relationship lasted ten months, and that ended a few years ago when I decided to change careers. Since then, I’d plowed through more men than Al Capone’s Tommy gun. Of course, most of my romantic misadventures had been undertaken in the name of research for my blog, lovingly named Anti-Romance: The seedy parlor where romance goes to get a happy-ending before it dies. At least, this is what I had convinced myself of. I only entered dead-end relationships for my job. It certainly wasn’t because I was screwed up in any way. Nope. Not me. I was just an artist willing to live my art. I entertained the world—well, my 257,000 subscribers—with my cocked-up love life. I was the canvas and my choice of medium was unavailable men. “I guess I’ll talk to you tomorrow after the rally?” I asked the question in a breathy murmur, trying to make my minuscule request sound even less demanding. He blew out a deep breath as he stood straighter. “I can’t. I’ll be flying to D.C. to play preschool teacher to some women’s rights groups. I have to coordinate the announcement of their endorsements on social media. I’ll call you to set something up when I get back.” I forced a smile as his green eyes locked on mine. “Of course. If you need any help,” I replied, tracing the tip of my tongue along his sharp jawline, savoring the salt of his efforts, “I’m great at kissing up to disillusioned constituents.” He chuckled heartily as he pulled away and reached for his waistline to button his slacks. “As much as I appreciate the offer, I think the candidate would rather I tackle this alone.” The candidate. Three months into our smoldering farce of a courtship and Rick still felt the need to call Senator John Grossman—the Republican presidential candidate he worked for—“the candidate.” As if I were too stupid to know he was referring to Senator Grossman. I may not have graduated from Harvard, but I was not stupid. In fact, I graduated in the top two percent of my class with a degree in psychology and a minor in women’s studies. Our country, on the other hand, was circling the Idiocracy drain. As evidenced by the untethered enthusiasm for reality TV—and, in my case, reality blogs—it was only a matter of time before we Americans would go sliding down a sludge-filled drainpipe and end up sloshing around the intellectual sewer system. The way I saw it, if our ship was going down, I wanted to go down in a yacht, not a life raft. I adjusted the crotch of my panties, all the while ignoring the burning itch that always followed rough sex with Rick. Though, it did seem to be getting worse lately. Must be a slight feminine “imbalance.” Nothing a little over-the-counter ointment wouldn’t fix. I smoothed down the skirt of my dress as Rick pulled up the zipper on his trousers. He wore that sly grin that communicated one of the following: a) He could go for another round, or b) He was quite pleased that he had conquered me in yet another public forum. The first time we had sex in public was on my third day working undercover in Grossman’s Austin headquarters. I thought seducing a Republican would make a great story for my blog followers. Rick thought having sex on his desk would be a great stress reliever. I knew we would make a great team. Actually, Rick was the first guy I’d considered letting in on my secret. Since I started my Anti-Romance blog four years ago, I’d told zero men that our relationship would be used for entertainment. Online, I went by the pseudonym Amber F. Thus far, none of my male companions had linked me to Amber. But Rick and I had been working together and fucking each other for almost three months. Somehow, this felt different. And, technically, I hadn’t written about Rick on the blog yet. I usually journaled about my relationships in a private app on my computer until we broke up. Then I’d go back and embellish my journal entries wherever necessary and upload each entry to the blog. My followers didn’t know if my dating life was happening in real time or past tense. Part of me did this because I was fastidious about never publishing a first draft, even if it was a first draft of a real life event. Another part of me hoped that when I found the right guy, my followers would never know anything about him, because our relationship would never end so I’d never have the opportunity to blog about it. Stranger things had happened. The look in Rick’s green eyes was breaking me down brick by brick. I felt myself blushing from the top of my head to my nether regions. I had to tell him about the blog. He reached up and cupped my face, his thumb gently stroking my cheek. “I can’t wait until the primaries are over and I can take you away with me for a few days.” He brushed his lips over mine and the pulsing ache between my legs returned, which only accentuated the burning itch. “Where do you want me to fuck you next? Under a waterfall in Hawaii? In front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris?” “Benghazi!” I blurted out and his face hardened as he pulled away. I delivered a playful shove to his solid chest. “I’m kidding. Paris sounds magnifique.” The sound of a car door opening startled us both. I whipped my head around to find my young and surly-in-a-hot-way neighbor stepping out of his pickup truck, which was parked right next to Rick’s BMW. He was sitting in his truck this whole time? My face flushed with heat as my neighbor attempted to keep his head down while passing us, but he couldn’t hide his smirk. Oh. My. God. The poor guy was trapped in his car this whole time because he was too afraid to disturb our public fuck-session. “I’m sorry,” I murmured as he passed. His head twitched in my direction, but he didn’t dare make eye contact. “No worries, ma’am,” he muttered as he continued toward our apartment complex. It was about 60 degrees in January, but I could swear it was summer in Austin as a searing warmth crept up my cheeks.
