The Quest of Perkins Vale (Legendary rock Stars #3) ~ LB Dunbar

I’m not sure I know what to think of the girl I’ve searched for since I was thirteen; she isn’t exactly how I remembered her.

I’m twenty-five, a guy and a virgin. Yep, you read that right; I’m still a virgin. Why you ask? Because I met the woman of my dreams when she was still a girl and I’ve been searching for her ever since we met. I’ve saved myself for her, as I believe she saved herself for me. Why again? Because I will love her, like she will love me, when we finally meet, again. I’d like to think it was that simple, but I don’t really know if she will love me. I only hope she will. If she doesn’t, she won’t be the right girl for me, because like I said, I’ve been saving myself for the woman of my dreams. I just don’t know where she is…but I won’t stop searching until I find her. That is my mission. My quest.

Sigh… Perkins and Hollister. Finally!! The mystery of who Perkins was saving himself for is finally here!!
Perkins is the sexy sweet drummer for the Nights. He’s the “Hands-Free Lover.” Perkins has been on a quest for 12 years look for the dark haired, grey-eyed girl he can’t forget. He’s saved himself for her in hopes that she has saved herself for him. When he runs in to this same girl years later in the woods, he vows to come back for her. Unfortunately, by the time he comes back, she is gone again. Now, he finds her at the benefit concert the night Arturo goes missing.

Hollister is one kick-ass heroine. She has been though some difficult times and fate keeps leading her back to Perkins. While she is in denial, while they are spending more time together, that he is the same boy from the woods, she can’t help her attraction to him. Never before has Hollister wanted to give herself to someone. The men in her life have only taken, so these feelings scare her and make her run.




This was great fan-fiction of the quest of the Holy Grail. I loved how LB Dunbar was able to make it in to a love story of a woman who could overcome her past tragedies and an amazing, honest and good man that loves and protects her. I enjoyed this story because even though we see glimpses of the rest of the Nights crew and Arturo (queue dramatic music), the tale is all Perkins and Hollister’s. Really hits you right in the feels. Cannot wait for the story of Tristan Lyons!

Inevitable (Key West Series #2) ~ C.A. Harms



 photo goodreads_zpsoy7n703h.png

Harper Jameson, had built the necessary walls to keep her heart safe. Never again would she allow herself to become weak and vulnerable. 

Confident and full of attitude. 

A mask she wore that many fell for… 

Except Easton Black. 

He was equally confident, cocky and knew what he wanted. 

Determined. 

Things he wanted rarely escaped his grasp. He was immune to the fa├žade Harper had created. 

She was Intriguing. 

It was Inevitable and Harper could sense that there was no way out. Easton Black would no doubt be the man who could change everything. 

People aren’t always as strong as they appear to be on the outside…

I loved Harper and Easton’s story. Actually, I just really love Easton. He’s such a sexy, cocky, arrogant, but really good guy. C.A. Harms has done it again and completely hooked me with these two characters. I love these types of series where we can see all the characters that interact, develop. We get to see glimpses of Jett and Quinn too, which makes me all smiley.

Harper has a past that she doesn’t want to tell Easton. She’s afraid that he’ll look at her differently, even though her past has made her the “hard as nails” girl she is. After her most recent “relationship,” and I use that term very loosely, falls apart, she comes off as a complete b*$ch at the start of the blossoming relationship with Easton. Fortunately, Easton doesn’t give up and gets to see a side of her that most men never see, since Harpers trust in men is zilch. He breaks down her walls and even brainwashes her dog (not for real, but its super cute. You’ll have to see when you read the book).

Easton has had his fair share of relationships, short and long, one night stands and bed-buddies, but Harper has always been the sassy girl that could keep him on his toes. After a flirty encounter with Harper in her brother, Jett’s office, it’s game-on for Easton. As sexy and arrogant as he comes off, he’s got a huge heart. ::Total Swoon::  Yes he has made mistakes and at one point in the book, you wonder if one of his mistakes will haunt them for the rest of their relationship. My gut was in knots! Queue dramatic music….

Easton and Harper are a great couple. C.A. Harms was able to write them like a normal couple with little stupid fights and big drama that they try to get though together. Relationships are not always easy, so it has been refreshing to see real couples in the two books in the series. Loved it!

Relinquish ~ M.N. Forgy
















 photo goodreads_zpsoy7n703h.png

 photo Synopsis_zpshy1vcpnk.png
In my world, there is no such thing as love. It is just a lie we whisper into our client’s ear. Love is foreign and hazardous. What I did not expect was to bare my soul to a man who is as egotistical as he is dangerous.

His name is Landon. Despite his blackened soul, he tried to save me, but what he didn't expect was my torturous fate to catch up with me.


To your father, I'm the escort.

To your mother, I'm the whore.
To the legal system, I'm the prostitute.
In the end, I'm just the other woman.

I have no idea if I will continue to survive, if I will ever find my path aside from the gritty streets I know so well. There is a good chance I will wind up in the ditch like most women in my position. Surrendering to my fate is the only choice I have. I must relinquish it all.

Relinquish was not what I expected….. In a good way! When the story starts with Charlie as a 9 year old, my heart literally broke for her. Then chapter one brings you up to the now, when Charlie is 18 and leaving her foster home. This foster home disgusts me and I cannot blame Jayden (Charlie’s only somewhat family) for wanting to leave with Charlie.

Charlie goes in search of a job after her life savings is stolen, while she slept on the bus to Vegas. The guy, who tries to help her get a job, ends up collecting on his favor and, at first Charlie makes herself believe that this is her “boyfriend” taking care of her, but in her sub conscience, knew she was selling herself.
Landon….. Wow. He is one gorgeous, sexy and damaged man. He now runs the Blackwell Estate, previous run by his father. After some run-ins with Charlie in front of a coffee shop, Landon ends up coming to her rescue, when her “boyfriend” tries to pawn her off on his friends. This is when Charlie comes to terms with what she was doing the entire time. After the attack and Landon’s saving, Landon takes Charlie for a drink, which leads to so much more.


Charlie and Landon’s attraction is one that they can’t ignore. It’s as if fate keeps throwing them in to each other’s path. The twists and turns of their story kept me on the edge of my seat and the mystery behind Landon’s father was a total curve ball. When Landon and Charlie can no longer deny their Love, these two go “All In.”

Strike (Sphere of Irony #2) ~ Heather C. Leigh





Privilege, poverty, death, and self-loathing; these are the backgrounds of the men of the internationally famous rock band, Sphere of Irony.

Dax Davies has one job to fulfill in the Davies household. Earn money at the family business. The problem is that the family business is illegal underground fighting.

From a young age, Dax and his brothers are groomed to become money earners in their father's club. Broken bones and bruises are commonplace. Their father pits the brothers against each other to 'toughen them up' for the ring. His future is in the cage, not on stage where he dreams of being.

Kate Campbell loves one thing in life. Well, two. Soccer and Dax Davies. Growing up in the poorest part of London, soccer is her personal escape from reality and the fact that Dax doesn't seem to know she exists. She figures if she can be good enough at it, maybe she can get away from Hackney, and leave the poverty behind.

Kate doesn't plan on ever getting a chance to know Dax as more than an unattainable dream. After a mutual acquaintance brings them together, it only takes one ill-fated night at the fight club tear them apart.

***This is book 2 in the Sphere of Irony Series. It can be read as a standalone. This is a spin-off of the Famous Series***

***This book is recommended for those 18+ due to language and content***

I love Heather C. Leigh's writing. Just like Adams's story, Dax's starts in high school and follows his and Kate's life. This story follows the same timeline as Adam and Ellie's story, but the focus is all Dax and Kate!! There are flash backs as we get in further in their lives, but you always know right where you are. Heather wrote a Rock Star story, with this series, that's unlike the others I've recently read.

Kate and Dax's story has angst, sexual tension and so much more emotion then Dax would like you to see. I understand our parents do things for reasons, but no one should have been brought up the way Dax was. I'm so happy that he was finally able to find his own way and rules.

I cannot wait to see what happens with the other Spear of Irony band mates!!

Entice (Hearts of Stone #2) ~ Veronica Larsen




 photo goodreads_zpsoy7n703h.png

 photo Synopsis_zpshy1vcpnk.png


Turns out I’ve been faking being an adult. 

My job? My apartment? The pretty life I've built? 



Let's just say I've made some mistakes.


I'm knee-deep in the mess I've made when I find him. Tall, dark-haired, and rough around the edges. The boy I never noticed is all grown up, in all the right ways. And he's not about to let me forget it. 

He can try to pretend he's immune to our attraction. I'm trained in the art of persuasion and I love a challenge.

But how can he know the answers to questions I haven't thought to ask? I’ve been putting out fires, fighting like crazy to get my life back on track. And this man? He acts like he knows who's holding the match. 

Maybe there's no such thing as mistakes. 
What if it's all just sabotage?


Can be read as a standalone, but contains major spoilers to Entangle (Hearts of Stone, Book 1).

This causes a lot of resentment when Emily comes back home from her life in San Francisco.

This is a real story about alcohol and the way life creeps up on you. I enjoyed this story better then the first and you can feel the emotion behind each character. Really well written.
