I wish I could scream it at them, but no one will
listen to me. Instead, they choose to ignore me by making me into something I’m
not. I try to make them happy, but no matter how hard I try it’s not good
enough. I make good grades. Hell, I was top of my class senior year, but things
happen. We make sacrifices for people important to us. My parents wouldn’t
understand that. Instead, they say I could be better. I’m the good girl to
everyone else, but to my parents I fall short. To most I have curves, to them I’m
fat. I just want them to be happy with my imperfections. You know what? I’m
tired of giving and getting nothing in return. Screw them.
The only one that I want to see me for who I
really am…is him.
Taralynn Evans has always been the good girl, forced
to befriend people she cares nothing about. She tries hard to be what them and
everyone else expects her to be, but what’s the point when it’s never enough to
gain their approval? She’s over lying to make others happy or self-sacrificing
to spare their feelings. For once, she just wants to be herself. She wants to
feel human, tired of being a puppet.
When tragedy strikes her in the worst way, she
finds herself bargaining in distress, trying to find reason and rationality in
what’s set before her, but will he give in when in most cases the good girl
never gets the bad boy?
Ink, sex, lies, loyalty.
Those are the things that define me, and my life.
I do me. Nothing else matters. I don’t need anyone’s approval, nor do I seek
it. I’m comfortable with the man I am. The only thing that haunts my dreams are
those sapphire eyes that remind me of midnight. I will shut it down every
single time. I can’t have her. She deserves more than what I’m after. The
problem is that sometimes life is a bitch. That curveball was nowhere in sight,
but now that it’s been thrown…my life may never be the same.
Shawn Braden has always been the bad boy. He’s
always had the love and support of his parents no matter what he does. He knows
he can have any girl he wants. Too bad he never wants them more than once. What
he truly wants is the one thing he’s never admitting to, not even to himself.
What happens when he starts seeing past the facade she’s put on for years and
shows him the real girl that is hiding inside? Will he fall against his will,
or will she become nothing more than every girl before?
This was the first
book of N.E. Henderson’s that I’ve read…… and I LOVED IT!! I could not put this
down. I mean tattooed hottie secretly pinning for great girl, who he thinks he
can’t have, means lots of sexual tension and plot twists.
So, Shawn Braden is
said tattooed hottie, who is a love ‘em one time and leave ‘em type of guy. He’s
a kickass tattoo artist, but thinks very little of himself when it comes to the
beautiful and smart Taralynn. There comes a time when he needs to claim her, or
risk losing her all together.
Taralynn is the good
girl, goes to school, feed and cleans up after her boys and tries to do
everything to get her mother to care about her. Unfortunately, nothing she does
ever seem to warrant her mother’s approval and I found myself wanting to punch
her mother in the face. I mean, seriously, the girl is double majoring in
college and holding down 2 jobs while doing it. While going through all this,
she’s wishing Shawn would just give her a chance.
tragedy strikes, Shawn is the only one she wants to be near and Shawn finds
himself falling, well I actually think he fell a long time ago, but didn’t want
to admit it, for Taralynn, but thinking he’s never going to be good enough. What
he doesn’t realize, is he is everything she needs and deserves.
The minute any woman
walks into my bar, I can tell two things about her: what she wants to drink,
and how she likes to f*ck.
I’m Cash: bartender at the hottest bar in Atlanta.
I’ve got girls lining up around the block, and they all know the rules: no
strings, no promises, and no morning-after snuggling. You want brunch? Call
your sister. You want the best sex of your life? Call me. Or better yet, just
drop by the bar anytime. Clothing optional.
There’s a reason they call me a sexy bastard.
And yes, I really am that good.
Eve Jagger does it
again!! She sucks me right in with two fun, sassy and super sexy characters. I
love Cash and Savy!!
Cash is a notorious “love
‘em and leave ‘em” type, which is all well and good, because after Savannah’s
last relationship, she’s just looking for a guy to help her broken heart. Their
friendship and quick wit quicvkly escalate to something more. Cash and Savy’s
sexual chemistry is HOT, HOT, HOT!!
When it gets to the
point where the innuendo’s and flirty just doesn’t do it anymore, Savy takes
matters in to her own hands and gets what she wants…Cash. What she wasn’t ready
for, was to believe that his demons were not things he wanted to lie to her
about, but things he was ashamed of. His relationship with his parents sucked
and he was just getting back in to his sisters good graces. Throw in a little
of Savannah’s past and you have one cluster of drama.
Everyone knows Brooke Wicks
loves to have a good time. She’s not interested in getting serious, settling
down, or limiting herself to one man. So when she meets the sexy, irresistible
Mason King, she sees another opportunity to let loose and go wild. But the
gorgeous Aussie isn’t interested in just a quick fling with Brooke, and if she
wants to get into his bed, she’s going to have to do it on his terms.
fast and hard has always been Mason’s philosophy. He doesn’t want a meaningless
connection, he wants it all, and he wants it with Brooke. When she makes her
one desire known—to hit it and quit it—Mason wages a plan to ensure Brooke
keeps coming back for more. Or so he hopes.
her attention was the easy part. Keeping it might be damn near impossible.
Obsession is where the Sweet Addiction series meets theAlabama Summer series..
He’s a sexy Australian yoga instructor, with a killer accent and has respect
for women. Can we say, super, sexy-sweet book boyfriend? His patience and
restraint with Brooke is commendable. There were several times I thought Mason
would cave, but he held true to his word.
is a beautiful and confident firecracker. She takes what she wants, and boy,
does she want Mason. It’s great to see a strong female character who knows what
she likes and doesn’t have problems expressing those desires. And screw anyone
that tries to pull double standards on her!!
said, I could not believe the restraint Mason showed while trying to get to
know Brooke. I was so happy though, that she got to see what a good man would
and could do for a good woman. They had the chemistry and they definitely have
a wonderful love story. Sigh.
Several of the women in the condo complex I own would love some one-on-one
playtime, and why wouldn’t they? I’m young, fit, attractive, and loaded. Not to
mention I’m packing a sizable bulge below the belt. It’s a combination that
drops panties on a regular basis.
Yay, me, right?
But my cock, troublemaker that he is, has been confined to my trousers by my
business partner. A concession I agreed to, and one that’s never been hard to
enforce until Emery moves in across the hall. She’s smart, young, determined,
and sexy as hell. I want a taste. I won’t stop until I’m buried deep inside the
succulent new-in-town brunette.
After being warned about my past, she does her best to steer clear, but I’m
about to show her that underneath it all, I’m a guy with a heart of gold and a
cock of steel.
My name is Hayden Oliver, and this is my story.
Let me just say, Hayden Oliver is hot,
sexy and a lot sweeter than he would let on. He’s super thoughtful and romantic,
but that is all over shadowed by his fears from a troubled past with a current
tenet in the building he owns.
Enter Emery. She’s smart, sassy and has
completely sworn off men. So what if Hayden boasts to be packing a 9 incher. I
mean, we heard such great things from Roxy (can you hear the sarcasm?), so why
would we want anything to do with him, right?
When Hayden makes it a point to just be
friends, Emery lets down her guard and they start to hang out…. A lot. They
have inside jokes and get to know each other, but Hayden won’t let Emery in to
why he has become a man-whore, until its possibly too late.
Screwed is sweet, sexy and a lot of fun. I
really enjoyed these two and their sexual tension.
complicated, it was also just the beginning.
A simple choice.
There is always that one moment in life where
things could have been different. That one moment where you could have chosen a
path that would lead you down a certain road.
A different life.
It was easier to pretend that we were still best
friends, and that she was my girl and I was her boy.
Pretending was better than knowing the truth...
I. Ruined. Us.
I had her.
I lost her.
I love her.
All I did was complicate us.
I loved, loved, loved
Complicate Me. This one hits you right in the Feels! Darn you M. Robinson and
your fantastic characters. I could not put this one down and I could not stop
the tears from falling….both sad and happy.
Best Friends for
Life. We’ve all said it, but who can actually claim they have those friends
that have lasted a life time. These Good Ol’ Boys do and that includes their
half pint. Sigh
Lucas was an ass.
He was immature, seduced by peer pressure and well, to be honest, a typical
teenage boy. It was emotional watching him learn from his mistakes and grow up,
but eventually he did just that… Grew up.
held out for Lucas for-ev-er! She pined over him and wished she could be his
girl. That he could be hers. When she finally gets tired of not having anyone
(double standard alert) while all the guys get to have that companionship, she
I’ll be honest; I
was Team Lucas all the way. Even when he was being an idiot, I realized that he
was just over ruled by peer pressure, hormones and his own fears. Cole weired
me out and always made Alex seem like a conquest in stead of a person. Had she
not been such a challenge, would he have gone for her? Lucas always cared for
her. Her, Alex, not the “prize” of Alex, but the person….even if he had a
messed up way of showing it.
If you haven’t
read this, you must “one-click” this now. I cannot wait to hear about all the
Good Ol’ Boys. Those are some hot, sexy men with some fun ahead.
Avery Nolan’s father has
never been a part of her life.
As a result, she finds herself becoming a caretaker. Always trying to please
other people, willing to tuck her own concerns aside for the happiness of
She is selfless.
She is a nurturer.
On the outside, it appears Kade Thomas has it all, but no one can understand
the guilt and ache he feels daily.
He is haunted by his past.
Every time he closes his eyes, he finds himself reliving the same nightmare,
over and over again.
He blames himself for the loss of Jenna.
He pushed her too far and she paid the price.
Avery saw something special in Kade, from the first day she met him—she could
But the darkness that consumes him is…
Will she finally be the one to break down the walls he’s built around his heart
Or will she find some walls are just Indestructible…
Sigh…. Oh how I love these Key West Boys!! Another great one
by CA Harms. Hot guy with a tragic past and a sweet, generous, and beautiful
woman, mixed in with some hot sex on top of ’67 Shelby Mustang… SWOON!
Kade’s sad and tragic past has him just moving through life,
not really living. He hit rock bottom once before and now only uses women as a
means to an end. There’s no feeling. “It’s just sex.”
Avery has been holding out for Kade for over a year. While
she knows he has a sad past, in no way does she realize how connected she already
is to it. After a hot romp on the top of Kade’s gorgeous ’67 Shelby, we’re not
too sure if the two will be able to salvage their friendship.
Let’s be honest, Kade acted like an ass and while he doesn’t deserve
Avery’s forgiveness, he needs it. He needs her to help him heal and get past
the tragedy in his life so he can live again.
