By the time Nash realizes what he’s done, it might just be too late…
Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.
O. M. G. What a conclusion! This book certainly made my heart race!
The first part of the book is showing how Becca lost trust to anyone surrounding her. Her parents, new friends and Evan. The truths from book 1 showed her that she is not able to trust anyone as it seems everyone has their own agenda that is supposed to “protect her”. Even when she appreciates the protectiveness she would prefer honesty. Especially from her parents and Evan.
I like how Ms. Cotton shows more Evan POV here. How she struggles and wants Becca back. Even going so low as to use his adorable younger brother. He btw is just way too cute!
After I think around 45% of the book the twist that Ms. Cotton cunningly introduces made my jaw hit the floor.
I. Did. Not. Expect. THAT!
I won’t say anything else except: READ THE DAMN BOOK NOW!
Definitely 5 stars!
Just some fun. Just one night of reckless, harmless, wild fun.
That’s what I told myself the night I hooked up with quite possibly the sexiest guy I’ve ever known. Only, I didn’t want to KNOW him. Life is a series of temporary situations, or so it’s always been for me. A future revolves around the next move, but I’m still the type to live in the moment on a seldom occasion, consequences be damned.
Unless that moment happens to be unknowingly landing in bed with my brand new stepbrother. The universe is a mean, twisted jerk. And one consequence is that I have to be around him and get to know him. The worst consequence is the fact that Maverick Sterling, the infamous playboy who can’t possibly be tamed, is really hard not to want more of once you’ve had a taste. So long as I’m not stupid enough to fall in love, it shouldn’t be a big deal. Right?
My life has been blissfully simple for a really long time. I have a routine. I have friends. I have family. Yet everyone seems to have less and less time, since they’re all sort of trying to be adults or what the hell ever. I blame them for the fact the only girl to ever ditch me without a backward glance is suddenly under my skin. I blame my father for the fact she’s a new fixture in my life. Not that I knew that before I got a little overly friendly with my new stepsister. I mean, what are the odds? It shouldn’t have been possible.
But it happened. It figures the one girl I can’t get out of my head is the one girl who doesn’t want to be with me. At least in my head she’s the only girl who doesn’t want to be with me, because I tend to be arrogant like that. The point is, now she’s everywhere I turn, yet she’s marking a line in the sand that she thinks I really won’t cross.
Obviously she doesn’t know me at all.
*Can be read as a stand-alone
I think I’m in love. No. I know I’m in love. Through the whole series I was 100% Kade’s girl. No one compared to him. Until Maverick. I liked Maverick and his goofiness but I have not expected such depth to him. Ms Owens certainly knows how to make me switch the teams.
This story is so full of feels and emotions. Full of everything. You will laugh, cry, curse and hate some people too.
Maverick is the clown of the group from Sterling Shore. Always ready to prank others, to laugh at them and with them. And he is the biggest playboy of them all. Even though he was a bit of an A-hole I loved that he was always honest with all the girls. They knew what he wanted and expected. He is smart and a great businessman but most importantly he is kind. The moments how he helped Sean were making me cry. Literally.
Salem is awesome. I want to be her when I grow up. She has an awesome job career. Certainly not easy for a woman. I like her relationships with her brothers. You can see, duh! Feel how they love each other. It’s amazing. She never had an easy life. Even though she never was poor. But sometimes people need a bit more then just money.
This book is simply awesome.
5 heavenly stars

It’s been years since my mother was in my life.
I learned to accept love.
That’s all done. She was away, and now she’s back.
I’ve avoided her for a year and a half, but I can’t hide anymore.
Mason has an internship in Fallen Crest, so we’re heading back for the summer.
And when we got there—no one was prepared for what happened.
From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey
Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.
She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.
Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.
Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.
He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.
Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.
I had just grabbed my oversized hat and slipped my sunglasses on when I spotted Anderson walking up the drive with a large trash bag slung over his shoulder. He wore a simple, black V-neck and distressed jeans, an outfit way too dark and hot for the heat. A light sheen of sweat gathered on his neck as he made his way toward my cabin, his eyes hidden behind all-black sunglasses.
“Change your mind?” I asked, not even fighting the grin on my face as I walked outside and leaned against the banister.
Anderson squinted up at me, his boots heavy as they hit each stair. “About?”
“Tubing?” I asked. That was why he was here, right?
“Oh.” He shook his head as he hit the top stair, shrugging the bag off his shoulders to hold it by the neck in one fist. “No, I have somewhere to be…” His voice trailed off, and even through the tinted shades of his glasses I felt his eyes on my chest. I’d strapped on my favorite boho print bathing suit and paired it with a dainty gold chain that wrapped around my neck once before dipping between my chest and crossing over my ribs.
He sniffed, holding the bag out toward me. “I just came to drop these off. My clothes. Well, the ones that could probably use a little TLC.”
My eyes lit up and I reached for the bag, but Anderson snatched it back, brows shooting up into his forehead.
“No frills, Wren.”
I threw my hands up in surrender. “I promise.”
He smirked, just slightly, and handed the bag over, tucking his hands in his front pockets.
“Are you sure you don’t want to come?” I asked, peering into the bag at my project before setting it just inside the cabin and locking the door behind me.
“I can’t,” he said, lips pressed together. He was tense, the muscles on his forearms tight as he glanced around at pretty much everything but me.
I opened my mouth to ask why but was cut off by the sound of a truck flying into my drive, tires sliding against the gravel.
Tucker was in the driver’s seat with Davie in the passenger. Sarah and Yvette sat in the back, laughing with their hands up as the truck skidded to a stop. They were both sprawled out on a pile of tubes, wearing bathing suit tops and tiny shorts.
All of their faces froze when they saw Anderson.
“Hey, you ready, Wren?” Tucker asked warily, his eyes moving from where Anderson stood in front of me, to me, and back again.
“Yeah, one sec!” I called back.
I turned to Anderson, but his eyes were hard on Tucker, jaw ticking under his skin. When he faced me once more, an anchor fell from my throat into the pit of my stomach, immobilizing me completely. Because even though I ‘d tried to convince myself I was wrong, I recognized the look in his eyes.
And when his nose flared and he took one big step toward me, our chests brushing, his hand reaching out to rest almost imperceptibly on my hip, the anchor in my stomach exploded into flames, burning a desire so fierce I inhaled a toxic breath and didn’t let it go.
“Be careful, okay?” His eyes locked on mine just before he leaned in and swiftly kissed my cheek.
He turned on his heel and jogged down the stairs and past the truck. Sarah called his name, but he didn’t acknowledge her, just kept his gaze forward until he’d disappeared from view.
And then everyone looked at me.
Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
Crenshaw Jacobson met the woman of his dreams…and he was determined to spend every night possible with her. But Waverlee Armstrong was leery of commitment, having been abandoned by her family at an early age. She knew that she loved Shaw…but can she learn to trust him and spend just one more night?

Written as part of Fiona Davenport’s Sex, Vows & Babies Kindle World!
Shivering against him as she parted her lips to speak, Waverlee moaned as his tongue swept forward, stealing the opportunity to deepen their kiss. And holy moly, the man could kiss. And not just any old kiss either. It was the-steal-your-breath-I-can’t-live-without-his-touch-because-nothing-else-in-the-world-matters kind of kiss a girl spends her life dreaming about. Their tongues danced together for long minutes as everything else faded away. The people. The noise. Everything took a backseat to the fierce passion Shaw created with a simple touch of his mouth to hers.
Forcing herself to find her voice when Shaw lifted his mouth from hers to take a deep breath, Waverlee flashed a furtive glance up at his darkened eyes. “Wow,” she breathed shakily, clutching handfuls of his light blue dress shirt in her fists as the world seemed to spin at warp speed, “I..I…don’t think I’ve ever felt anything like that before,” she whispered, the words catching in her throat as his finger swept against her lower lip.
“Then you best hold on real tight to me, baby, ‘cause I’m just getting started,” he replied, dropping his head to steal another deep, wet kiss from her lips as he curved one big hand around her neck, wrapping her silky hair around his fist and tugging gently.

I love love love insta love novellas. They always make me chuckle and thanks to them I feel warm and fuzzy. Bonus is when they are smutty too. And this one is like that.
I really enjoyed this short story. Even though it’s short you had enough details to get to know the characters and like them.
Waverlee is a hardworking girl who was dealt crappy cards by life or her parents who left her when she was 18. Since then all she wants is love and someone who will be there for her, and won’t leave her. That’s why it’s hard for her to believe Shaw just wants to be with her and is not going anywhere.
This story offers you banter, smut and love. Perfect combination.
From sexy stories with married couples fighting against outside forces to keep their happily ever after in the Sex & Vows series to unexpected pregnancies that lead to happy marriages in the Yeah, Baby series… the Sex, Vows & Babies world is full of over the top alphas, sassy heroines, insta-love, wedding bells, and growing families. Although the wide cast of characters in both series have managed to find the loves of their lives, there’s bound to be plenty more out there who could use Sex, Vows & Babies in their lives. A creation of the fabulous Fiona Davenport, the Sex, Vows & Babies Kindle World is filled with creative stories from amazing authors who pay homage to the original books!

I read all of the stories. ALL OF THEM. All 20 amazing stories that brings so many feels I was shaking at the end. Once I started I couldn’t stop.
Every single one of them gave me different feelings and emotions. But in all of the LOVE was them main one.
At the beginning I was: oh Elle Brooks chipped in so I have to read her story as I just love her writing. And as always she didn’t disappoint. She never does.
I loved Zoe from the first paragraph. She was funny. Even when complaining. It was hard on her to be at her sister’s wedding when all she was dreaming about since she was a girl was her “perfect day”.
I’m glad the chapters we got in here are only a teasers from upcoming novel by Elle.
I am not going to describe all of the stories but I have enjoyed all of them.

Omg. This was my first book by Kirsty and let me tell you this: when I was in the middle I knew I needed Paperback of this amazing story. I was lucky enough that Kirsty will be in Liverpool next weekend and I will be there. So pre-order form here I go!
But anyway. The story. I love a good, full of emotions, angst and hot scenes triangle. And that’s what was created here. The sexy scenes were created with steaminess that made me fan myself few times!
I liked the characters. They were believable and real. I could feel what they were feeling. And that’s what I like.
My favourite is Lawson. Yumminess. That’s all.
Go and read it people!
