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.
Another busy week for me, the kids had their sports carnival, I worked a few nights, did my Easter shopping because the kids are home next week and netball started on Saturday. My daughter is old enough to play now, so it means a long day at the football! Oh well, the things you do when you’re a parent!

I have loved Lori Foster’s Ultimate series so far and Holding Strong didn’t let me down either!! These fighters are under my skin! The guys are tough, hot and dominant and they chase after the girls that steal their hearts. They are a close knit group and they will do anything for those they consider family. And it was no different for Denver and Cherry.

Denver and Cherry are an amusing couple... And Denver often had naughty thoughts running through his head. I had to share one!!

“You like the idea of getting your backside warmed?” 
Instead of embarrassing her, the question made her smile bright enough to stir him. 
He almost got hard before she said, “No, so don’t go getting any ideas.” 
Too damn late for that. He’d had ideas from the moment he’d laid eyes on her.

Waiting On Wednesday # 133 – The Girl at Midnight & Overruled


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where I have the chance to spotlight an upcoming release that I’m eagerly anticipating.

The Girl at Midnight
The Girl at Midnight (The Girl at Midnight, #1)Author: Melissa Grey
Series: The Girl at Midnight #1
Genre: YA Paranormal
Expected Publication: April 28th 2015





For readers of Cassandra Clare's City of Bones and Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone, The Girl at Midnight is the story of a modern girl caught in an ancient war.

Beneath the streets of New York City live the Avicen, an ancient race of people with feathers for hair and magic running through their veins. Age-old enchantments keep them hidden from humans. All but one. Echo is a runaway pickpocket who survives by selling stolen treasures on the black market, and the Avicen are the only family she's ever known.

Echo is clever and daring, and at times she can be brash, but above all else she's fiercely loyal. So when a centuries-old war crests on the borders of her home, she decides it's time to act.

Legend has it that there is a way to end the conflict once and for all: find the Firebird, a mythical entity believed to possess power the likes of which the world has never seen. It will be no easy task, but if life as a thief has taught Echo anything, it's how to hunt down what she wants . . . and how to take it.

But some jobs aren't as straightforward as they seem. And this one might just set the world on fire.

Review ~ Four Score by Lili St. Germain

Title: Four Score
Author: Lili St. Germain
Series: Gypsy Brothers #4
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
Published: May 26th 2014





Love and hate aren’t all that different.

Two sides of the same coin, the yin and the yang.

Once upon a time, Jason Ross loved me. And now that he knows what I’ve done, I see the love and the hate warring within him.

I see the way he looks at me.

The way he wonders how I could do the things I’ve done.

I hear it in the way he begs me to stop, to leave this life and run away with him.

But there’s only one way I’m leaving LA.

And that’ll be when Dornan and the rest of his sons are dead and buried.

Jase might forgive me for what I’ve done.

But will he forgive me for the crimes I’m yet to commit?

Holy shit people! Four Score was freakin' awesome! This was a big book for both Jules/Sammi and Jase, and I just didn't want things to change. They grew as people, found comfort with one another… But it was only a matter of time before the crap hit the fan.

This week I was busy! I worked a few shifts, ran around with the kids and we made a quick dash to NSW for a christening. I was up at 5.30am Saturday morning, and I am definitely not a morning person!!

EARLY REVIEW ~ Time Served by Julianna Keyes

Title: Time Served
Author: Julianna Keyes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: March 23rd 2015





Dean Barclay had nothing to do with my decision to flee my old life, but he is 100 percent of the reason I vowed to never look back.

I've never forgotten how it felt to follow Dean—dangerous, daring, determined—away from the crowd and climb into his beat-up old Trans Am. I was sixteen and gloriously alive for the first time. When I felt his hand cover my leg and move upward, it was over. I was his. Forever.

Until I left. Him, my mom, and the trailer park. Without so much as a goodbye.

Now Dean's back, crashing uninvited into my carefully cultivated, neat little lawyerly life. Eight years behind bars have turned him rougher and bigger—and more sexually demanding than any man I've ever met. I can't deny him anything…and that just might end up costing me everything.

Time Served was a story of personal growth for both of the main characters, Rachel and Dean. They both seemed lost and were just going about their days as normal, not realising they were missing something, until they were united again.

Time Served
Title: Time Served

This was a nice read, of personal growth and second chances.
Dean wants to do anything for Rachel!

“I want to be good enough for you. Suit, tie, whatever it takes.” 
“You are.” 
“I’m not. But I’ll try. You’re the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen. You’re the smartest woman I know. The hottest fuck of my life. If I’ve gotta dress up for that, then I will.” 
Does it mark me as cheap if I say those are the nicest things any man has ever said to me?
