This book was so good. Amy Daws has given us another fantastic sports romance. We meet Tanner and Belle in Challenge the previous instalment

. I loved the chemistry between these two characters. their banter is great. I also love that we visit with the couple from book one and we get to see the whole Harris family in this book.

I enjoyed that this book was told in both Belles and Tanner’s point of view and I liked that they both had their own issues stemming from their upbringing about how they handle relationships. I loved the growth between these characters. Tanner was swoon worthy and I like that Belle was such a strong and well written character and I love that she is someone who values her career and wants more but she also wants a family and marriage.

This was an amazing read and I loved reading about this couple and I love reading about this family. I enjoy Amy’s writing because you just fall right into the story and it has you hooked from the very start I can’t wait to read the next instalment

When people hear the name Tyler Kane, they think of the captain of the Philadelphia 46035483Flyers who outscores all the centers in the league and can get any girl he wants. And they are right. Except the woman I want is off-limits and a constant reminder of the past. But everything changes after I meet a feisty sports reporter that challenges me at every turn.

I should leave her alone and spare her the drama that comes with my life outside the rink. But I can’t keep my hands off her. So, we make a deal. She wants an exclusive interview that could expose my secrets to the world, and I have every intention for it to end with her in my bed. But I didn’t think the quirky blonde who writes about hockey players and their big sticks would be the one to hit me the hardest.

I loved this book. Jillian Quinn writes the best bad boys. Kane is no exception, but he’s also got a good heart that he keeps buried to protect himself. There’s lots of sexy banter and bickering back and forth between Kane and Kennedy which adds some great laugh out loud moments and builds the sexual tension. There are lots of smokin’ hot steamy scenes, including a locker room scene that may result in you needing a cold shower…

Fun, steamy sports romance with heart. Great read

I loved the second book in this series. The writing Is fantastic and you can just picture the scenes and feel the emotions of the characters like a warm blanket. I was hooked and read this book in one sitting.

I loved being back amongst this crazy bunch of friends and the majority of this story consist of Jameson and Ashely fighting their feelings for each other and they are fooling no one. they have both been affected by a chance encounter which happened four years earlier and they have been trying hard to ignore it but the tension is there.

I loved Jameson. and we get to see the rest of the group of friends from the previous book. I loved Jameson and ashton and I got all of the feels for this pair. their stubbornness was infrutiating at times but I can understand both sides. Ashton is one sassy snarky girl and I love her attitude she rocks.

Overall a quick cute read and I cant wait to read the next instalment in this series

Left or right.39281043

It’s that simple, and it isn’t simple at all.

If I turn left, the road will lead me back to the man I promised my life to, the one I’d imagined building a family with, the one who’s done everything in his power to get me back.

If I turn right, the road will take me to the man I loved first, the man who brought me back to life, the man who would do anything to keep me.

I knew the fork in the road was inevitable; it was the decision I never wanted to make between choices I didn’t know I had.

And I love them both.

My heart is destined to exist in two equal halves — one with each man. But one half beats stronger, the vein running deepest, and holds my choice in silence long before I know it for myself.

The realization of what I have to do, of the heart I have to break, just might break mine too.

Left or right.

All I have to do is take a breath and turn

OMG!! I feel like my heart has been ripped out, stomped on, and then tried to be resuscitated! I have no clue what the hell I’m feeling right now and honestly, I just need a damn drink. Vodka on the rocks preferably because what I went through while reading this book? My nerves are fucked the hell up!

After reading the final chapter in “What He Doesn’t know” I thought for sure that nothing could get any worse than that one final word that I read. My brain accepted it for what it was but my heart, was torn into pieces. But still, I got over it because deep down, I KNEW that in this book, it was going to be made for redemption and also new beginnings and I was more than ok with that. Then I started reading and do you know what I got? A fucking drinking problem that’s what!!

If you’ve read What He Doesn’t Know, then you’re familiar with the characters of Charlie, Reese, and Cameron and what they mean to each other. This was a very complicated relationship between three people who loved each other differently, but fiercely in their own right. Some were silent, and some were louder than words but it was there. Loving two people at the same time is not an easy thing but having to destroy another person’s happiness and making a decision to choose one over the other, that is what’s to going to tear you apart. In this story, in order to achieve happiness, someone has to get hurt.

I cannot say how much I adore this author’s writing and the emotions she manages to capture in just one simple page. During these characters darkest moments, I truly felt as if I was in that room with them. Every tear and heartbreak, I felt it as if it was my own and that is something that I don’t feel very often. Now as much as I felt those things, I also felt a crap ton of anger and frustration as well. COMMUNICATION IS THE KEY!!! I wanted to shake the hell out of these people and bang their heads together for not saying what needed to be said at the time. But despite that, and being disappointed with the chosen one, this was one hell of a duet and I’m so glad that I got to experience this.

If you’re looking for a emotionally angst driven read, then this one is for you.

When hockey fans hear the name Alex Parker, they should think of the best defenseman 46035476in the NHL and my penalty kill record. Instead, they think of women and scandals. I have no shortage of puck bunnies throwing themselves at me. Too bad I chose the wrong one—the team owner’s granddaughter. So, they sent me packing to Philadelphia to play for the Flyers, one of the worst teams in the league. I wasn’t ready to start over, not after I was so close to the Stanley Cup.

My agent wants me to clean up my act. She says I drink too much. I sleep around too much. I never expected her to be my biggest weakness. I never thought she’d be the one who would make me a better man. But she has rules about dating clients. Good thing I like breaking them.

emotional read with a unique twist for a sports romance mixed with a little bit of forbidden/off limits

Parker is my first read by Jillian Quinn and while I am a sucker for sports romances generally, I really enjoyed this emotional read with a unique twist for a sports romance between an off the rails bad boy hockey star and a feisty sports agent. The book mixes in a little bit of a forbidden/off limits theme to add an extra dimension to make this a hot and sexy sports romance!

Told from dual point of view, Coach (Charlie/Charlotte) and Alex have an irresistible chemistry that is instant but develops in a fairly fast but at the same the same time steady pace as secrets of darker past issues of troubled childhoods (although for very different reasons) rise to the front and must be faced. It’s fairly easy as a reader to connect and like Charlotte and Alex, especially as their stories evolve and we get to know them. I loved the mix of dirty talk and sports between the characters as it really added a quirkiness to these characters (and leaves you feeling rather flush!). The sub-characters added some variety to show different sides to both characters further.

Parker has a great writing flow that made this an addictive read. The plot is a little predictable but has plenty of heart and emotion that keeps things fresh and intriguing from start to finish. The issues raised Issues are handled with a nice sensitivity. In terms of the sports elements, it isn’t too heavy so even novices can easily follow along. The book can be read as a standalone read with a HEA.

Definitely would recommend this to any sports romance fans.

fighting silence.jpg

Sound is an abstract concept for most people. We spend our lives blocking out the static in order to focus on what we believe is important. But what if, when the clarity fades into silence, it’s the obscure background noise that you would give anything to hold on to?

I’ve always been a fighter. With parents who barely managed to stay out of jail and two little brothers who narrowly avoided foster care, I became skilled at dodging the punches life threw at me. Growing up, I didn’t have anything I could call my own, but from the moment I met Eliza Reynolds, she was always mine. I became utterly addicted to her and the escape from reality we provided each other. Throughout the years, she had boyfriends and I had girlfriends, but there wasn’t a single night that I didn’t hear her voice.

You see, meeting the love of my life at age thirteen was never part of my plan. However, neither was gradually going deaf at the age of twenty-one.

They both happened anyway.

Now, I’m on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life.
Fighting for my career.
Fighting the impending silence.
Fighting for her.

Every night, just before falling asleep, she sighs as a final conscious breath leaves her.

I think that’s the sound I’ll miss the most

My very first Aly Martinez read and I can honestly say it was a success. A sweet friends to lovers story, with a beautiful couple, adorable side characters and a heartfelt story. Maybe a little too light for my taste, but enjoyable nevertheless.

The love story is a slow burn and has its ups and downs. Especially Till is a huge obstacle they have to overcome. He has issues with taking things further even though Doodle is the love of his life. There are so many other things to consider. His two younger brothers, his health, school, money issues and parents they could do without. Basically, he is holding the weight of the world on his shoulders. Things only slightly turn towards the good the day Till steps foot into Slate’s boxing gym.

Eliza is a saint. She really has a heart of gold. She is intelligent, a hard worker and truly a gifted artist. I don’t even understand how she could turn out so sweet and caring, without turning cynical considering the life she lived. What got me the most was her strength and the way she turned into the ultimate momma bear when it comes to her boys.All in all I would say it was a well balanced read, the writing was phenomenal and the story made me swoon. It’s a feel good read with a lot of hope, mixed in with human struggle to fight for a better life and the sacrifices that come along the way.

Fighting Silence can be read as a standalone and although the story of Eliza and Till is told within this book, the series will continue with Till’s brothers Flint and Quarry. Those two stole my heart and I can’t wait to read some more about their future.

 Sometimes your life is split by a single decision.

I’ve spent every day of the last seven years regretting mine, he left and I didn’t follow. A thousand letters went unanswered, my words like petals in the wind, spinning away into nothing taking me with them. #

But now he’s back.

I barely recognize the man he’s become, but i can still see a glimmer of the boy who asked me to be his forever, the boy I walked away from when I was young and afraid,

Maybe if he’d come home under better circumstances he could speak to me without anger in his voice. Maybe if i’d said yes all those years ago he’d look at me without the weight of rejection in his eyes. Maybe if things were different we would have had a chance.

One regretted decision sent him away. One painful journey brought him back to me. I only wish I could keep him.

I loved A Thousand Letters this one made me feel all the feels. This was an amazing story and it was heart breaking and emotional. this was a great second chance romance and I recommend that you read it if you love second chance romances.

I loved Elliot from the start I loved that she was a caring and loving girl and I didn’t like the way that she was treated from people and Wade was one of those people sometimes though I liked him I felt protective of Elliot.

This book had me hoked and I couldn’t put my kindle down as I wanted to know what was going to happen next

She’s about to make a deal with the college bad boy…

Hannah Wells has finally found someone who turns her on. But while she might be confident in every other area of her life, she’s carting around a full set of baggage when it comes to sex and seduction. If she wants to get her crush’s attention, she’ll have to step out of her comfort zone and make him take notice… even if it means tutoring the annoying, childish, cocky captain of the hockey team in exchange for a pretend date.

…and it’s going to be oh so good.

All Garrett Graham has ever wanted is to play professional hockey after graduation, but his plummeting GPA is threatening everything he’s worked so hard for. If helping a sarcastic brunette make another guy jealous will help him secure his position on the team, he’s all for it. But when one unexpected kiss leads to the wildest sex of both their lives, it doesn’t take long for Garrett to realize that pretend isn’t going to cut it. Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him

The Deal” was a captivating story from the start. Written in dual POV, which I really, really enjoyed, this NA is about two people, Hannah and Garrett who apparently are very different from each other, but as the story progresses they will find they are more compatible they have thought. In more ways than one.

What a breath of fresh air this one was! I really, really enjoyed it! I read many college romances and for me this was one of the best. Evn if the storyline is predictable, I enjoyed it. Both Hannah and Garrett were such endearing and relatable characters. They were not perfect. They have fears and insecurities and they felt real. Hannah is a great heroine. She’s smart, beautiful and sassy. Despite her past she’s a strong girl. She wants to have a normal, heathy relationship and she’s not as damaged as I expected her to be. I liked the fact that she wasn’t shy. She speaks her mind, she’s honest and she’s caring. I found her a little annoying at times (in the beginning), but overall she was a great heroine.

While I only liked Hannah, I loved Garrett. He made me smile and swoon. He was simply adorable! He’s cocky and arrogant, but he’s charming and loyal as well and I couldn’t stop falling for him. He’s sweet, caring and protective and he’s the perfect boyfriend. I loved the way he talks with Hannah and the way he is with her. And I also loved how ambitious he is.I absolutely loved their chemistry. To say that it was off the charts hot will be an understatement. You can really feel it from the beginning. Their slow-build relationship was very well done in my opinion. I just loved how everything progressed between them.

I adored the banter between them and I loved all the sexual innuendos between them. They were so good together and perfect for each other. The witty dialogue was absolutely fabulous. I simply loved all their interactions.

The side characters are pretty great too. And I’m talking about Hannah and Garrett’s friends. There’s some angst and drama, but don’t worry, they are low.

The writing was flawless and engaging and the story was told in such a way that will make you be invested in this story from the start.

All in all, “The Deal” was a fantastic read with two lovable well developed characters, captivating storyline and great writing. If you’re a fan of college romances I totally recommend it!

I loved this book I loved Cam and Indie’s relationship so much. This was a fun quick read and it gave me all the feels I was hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t put my kindle down while reading.  This is the first book that I have read by Amy Daws and I will be reading more of her work in the near future.

I loved that Cam was so honest and up front with Indie even at the beginning and I loved that he was wiling to fight for a chance to prove that they could be more then friends with benefits.  I also liked that Indie went from being a cute socially awkward character to a heartless user.

Some universal truths refuse to be ignored.

Peanut butter and Jelly are a match made in heaven. Spaghetti and meatballs are best friends forever. And guys like Tyler Knight don’t go for girls like Cam Emerson.

She knew from the second she met him that he didn’t belong on her bookshelf, the six foot ex tight end with a face so all American it could have sold apple pie. So she shelved him next to the supermodels and rock stars and took her place on her own shelf the one with the flannel clad pasty faced comic book nerds. Most of her boyfriends have existed between the pages of books but rather than worrying over her own lacking love life. she puts all her energy into playing cupid using her job at the book bar, Wasted words as her stomping ground.

Tyler Knight always looks on the bright side. His career ending injury tuned into a job as a sports agent. A horrible breakup led him to Cam, his quirky smart roommate who is far more beautiful than she realises. She’s made it perfectly clear she’s not intrested in him not like that at least but if she ever changes her mind he wont hesitate. because he doesn’t see the lines she’s drawn between them as much as she insists that they’re there. Deep down he knows that despite their differences they’re a match well made.
