Review ~ As Long As You Love Me by Ann Aguirre

As Long As You Love Me (2B Trilogy #2)Title: As Long As You Love Me
Author: Ann Aguirre
Series: 2B Trilogy #2
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: September 30th 2014

Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. She has her reasons—missing her family, losing her college scholarship. But then there's the reason Lauren can't admit to anyone: Rob Conrad, her best friend's older brother.

Football prowess and jaw-dropping good looks made Rob a star in high school. Out in the real world, his job and his relationships are going nowhere. He's the guy who women love and leave, not the one who makes them think of forever—until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her.

Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with.

Sigh… This was such a sweet read and I can’t believe how much it touched my heart. Rob and Lauren are two people who lack confidence (one who also has anxiety issues) that affect their day to day lives. Watching them come together and find hope in one another was just beautiful.

Cover Reveal ~ Undesired Lust by Eden Summers

Undesired Lust_525
Title: Undesired Lust
Author: Eden Summers
Series: Reckless Beat #3
Genre: Erotic Romance
Expected Publication: November 2014

They used to be the perfect team.

Two years ago, songstress Sidney Higgins ruined her life by sleeping with not one, but two of the famous Reckless Beat men, Mason Lynch and Sean Taiden. Their night of intimate celebration turned into a worldwide sensation when the video Mason vowed to keep private was uploaded to the internet, destroying her squeaky-clean reputation and turning the world against her. Now she’s broken and left without hope, trying to find the one thing that can get her back on her feet.

A mistake neither one of them is willing to forgive.

When the sex tape went viral and his best friends held him accountable, Mason bore the stigma of asshole with pride. Now, bitterness has destroyed him, driving away his muse and making him worthless in the industry he loves. There’s only one option left to reclaim his creativity, but that would mean collaborating with a woman who wants to castrate him with a plastic knife.

A palpable chemistry even hate can’t diminish.

Forced to work together, neither one of them is prepared for the undesired lust which immediately takes hold. The lies fade away, exposing the truth; however, it also awakens a threat from their past. The person responsible for tearing them apart is back to ensure they don’t rekindle a spark. With their safety in the balance, Sidney and Mason need to determine what they’re willing to risk to reclaim a relationship they wish they’d never lost.
I have been keen to get my hands on the next book in the REckless Beat series, and now I have the cover to share with you today. I love how it ties in with the other books in the series... November cannot get here soon enough!!

Release Day Launch ~ All Things Pretty by M. Leighton

ATP RDL Banner
Today is the release day for M. Leighton's third book in the Pretty series. I have been keen to get my hands on Sig'd book because he has been an entertaining character throughout this series. I hope to have my copy ASAP, so I can bring you my thoughts on the book! Happy Release Day, Michelle!!

All Things Pretty
Title: All Things Pretty
Author: M. Leighton
Series: Pretty #3
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: September 30th 2014
Pretending to be something they’re not, afraid to trust anyone completely, destined to tear each other apart– this is the story of unlikely love and unbearable consequences.

Sig Locke is a cop. He was raised by a cop and all his brothers are cops. He bleeds blue, believes in right and wrong, and sees in black and white, never in shades of gray.

But that was before he met Tommi.

Tommi, with her long legs and bright green eyes, she captured Sig’s interest from the moment he saw her. Even after he discovered who she was–the girlfriend of a drug dealer, the beauty behind a criminal–he still found her utterly irresistible. What Sig doesn’t know, however, is that she has a secret even a cop can’t uncover.

Tommi Lawrence hasn’t had an easy life, and it only got more complicated the day she met Sig. She learned long ago that she can’t trust anyone. Her gut tells her that Sig is no exception, her heart tells her that he is. But that was before she found out his real identity.

Can love be forged in a fire of lies? Or will the truth destroy them both?
Her lips are still curved when she turns her attention back to me. Something about the moment hits me like a punch to the gut. I think for a second that I could stand here and stare at her, just enjoy her smile and her happiness for hours. Days, maybe. But I can’t. We can’t. So, instead, I brush a clump of mud from the end of her nose. “Have fun?”

Pure (Covenant, #2)
*Sigh* I really love Seth! And seeing him with Alex is the smart thing, but i doubt it will stay that way. Anyway, here is a sweet moment between them.

He turned sideways, finishing the last of his buttons. "Alex?"
“I… I choose you—or whatever it is that you’re saying.” I flushed. Gods, I sounded stupid. “I mean, I choose the whole seeing what—”
Seth’s mouth cut my words off. His arms swept around me, dropping something warm and dry over my shoulders. I realized it was his suit jacket, but then I was thinking about how warm he felt. Before I knew it, I was gripping his shirt, arching against him, soaking up his warmth.

Review ~ Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Pure (Covenant, #2)Title: Pure
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series: Covenant #2
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Published: April 3rd 2012

There is need. And then there is Fate. Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's other half is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her. When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon--and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude--or killing her. When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

I cannot believe how much I am loving this series! Two books in and I am addicted! The Covenant Series has been a helluva ride so far, and I just want more. It is full of mystery, action and some moments that will have you swooning!

Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up #107

Nomi’s Weekly Wrap Up is a combined meme with the Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer, Bought, Borrowed and Bagged hosted by Braine @ Talk Supe and Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I’ll share news, post a recap of the past week and tell you what will be happening on my blog in the week ahead. I will also tell you about the books and goodies that I have managed to pick up.
The kids are on school holidays right now and I haven’t had a lot of time to blog. I was busy playing catch-up one of the days this week, replying to comments and visiting a few people. I am slowly reading a few books and even made a trip to the library, although I have 2 books from there already… the kids forced me to go *wink*

Other than that, the weather has been great, warming up down here and we have pulled out our shorts! Whoo hoo!! And I may have come home from the shops and realised I had a HUGE tear in my favourite shorts! Lol I’m not sure when it happened, hopefully after I finished getting groceries, but lucky I had black panties on!! Bwahahaha! Anything funny happen to you?

Breakable (Contours of the Heart, #2)Title: Breakable
Author: Tammara Webber
Series: Contours of the Heart #2
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: May 6th 2014

He was lost and alone. Then he found her.
And the future seemed more fragile than ever.

As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise — until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.

All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy…

As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

After reading Easy and learning that the second book was from Lucas' POV, I was a little excited to see his side of the story and getting to know him more. Each chapter is divided in two sections: Landon - before College, and Lucas - during college. It gave me greater insight to see what Lucas was like as a teenager and how he lived life after the incident.

Molly and Fox were a great couple to read about. I loved alot of the secondary characters and I'm keen to read more about them!!

Undoing his seat belt, he reached over to clasp his hand over her nape, kiss her on the lips. A full kiss. A kiss that made her want to play with that ring, suck on his lip, lave her tongue against his, her hands in his hair instead of locked to bone-white tightness on the steering wheel. “I’ll be seeing you, Molly Webster,” he murmured with a final nibbling taste of her lips.
