Thirty days in a remote cottage, doing everything
he demands. After that, he’ll sign her divorce papers and give her complete
ownership of their company.
That’s how long he has to rediscover the man he
once was. The Dominant Master he hid when he fell in love with her five years
She wants the business they built badly enough to
go to the cottage for a month. Cut off ties to the world and do his bidding.
She can submit to him with her body, but her heart will never yield.
She thinks this is his pathetic attempt to repair
This was a new
spin on a wife asking for a divorce and the husband making certain stipulations
for the divorce to go through. Even though Diana feels that this 30 day request
from Adam is an attempt to have her fall back in love with him, Adam has other
While the sex and
BDSM scenes were hot, I had a hard time getting in to their dynamic. I felt
like Adam kept saying he loved his wife, but I couldn’t feel it. As the story
went on, I did see why he kept her away from this lifestyle and in his mind,
why the two had to be separate.
Diana never really had a choice of which side she would fall on. During the 30
days, her eyes and mind open up to different avenues, but it almost seemed like
it was too late for them, despite Adam loving Diana so fiercely.
Samuel Clearwater, A.K.A Preppy, likes bowties, pancakes,
suspenders, good friends, good times, good drugs, and a good f*ck.
He’s worked his way out from beneath a hellish
childhood and is living the life he’s always imagined for himself. When he
meets a girl, a junkie on the verge of ending it all, he’s torn between his
feelings for her and the crippling fear that she could be the one to end the
life he loves.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Capulet is strung out and tired.
Tired of living for her next fix. Tired of doing
things that make her stomach turn. Tired of looking in the mirror at the
reflection of the person she’s become. Just when she decides to end it all, she
meets a man who will change the course of both their lives forever.
And their deaths.
For most people, death is the end of their story.
For Preppy and Dre, death was only the beginning.
This is the fifth book in the King Series and it's
meant to be read after Soulless.
I have to admit. I was one of the people who was not
expecting this story to begin where it did, but I totally get why TM started it
where she did. In an effort to not give too much away, we needed to see
where Dre comes from and we also got to understand Preppy a little bit more.
Preppy is still his sarcastic, funny, crazy self and I found
myself laughing at a lot of things he would say, but at the same time, I could see
the cold, scary man that lurks just beneath the surface. We get to see why Preppy is the way he is
and now everything makes sense. Well, almost.
I also liked that we got to learn of Preppy’s love interest,
Dre. We didn’t hear much about her in the first part of the King series, so it’s
great to see the woman who captures Preppy’s heart. She’s troubled, haunted,
but strong and determined too. They make the perfect, crazy couple that don’t
back down from each other. I was definitely proud of Dre in a few scenes where
she called Preppy’s bluff.
TM is an awesome writer. She is one of my fav authors and
when anything of hers comes out, I have to get it. Her writing is fluid and
even with flash backs; we always know where we are in the story. And with this
cliffy, I need the next book ASAP!!!
“You think you know me. You think you want to
know me. But trust me, Miss Lang. Pursuing me will be the worst mistake you
ever make. I’m broken beyond repair…
…and I take great pleasure in breaking everyone
else around me.”
Ophelia Lang needs money, and she needs it bad.
Her parent’s restaurant is going under, and ever since she lost her job
teaching third grade elementary, scraping enough cash together to pay the bills
has proven almost impossible. Her parents are on the brink of losing their
home. The vultures are circling overhead. So when Ophelia is offered an
interview for a well-paid private tutoring gig in New York, how can she
possibly say no?
Ronan Fletcher is far from the overweight,
balding businessman Ophelia expected him to be. He’s young, handsome, and
wealthy beyond all reason. He’s also perhaps the coldest, rudest person she’s
ever met, and has a mean streak in him a mile and a half wide. A hundred grand
is a lot of money, however, and if tolerating his frosty temperament, his
erratic mood swings and whatever else he throws at her means she’ll get paid,
then that is what Ophelia will do.
Her new boss is keeping secrets, though. Awful,
The ghosts of Ronan Fletcher’s past are about to
turn Ophelia’s future upside down, and she can’t even see it coming.
OMG! What a phenomenal book!! I was already a
Callie Hart fan, so I instantly had to get BHATH!! I didn’t even read the
blurb, so I was floored, shocked and enthralled with in the first few chapters.
To not give anything away, I will say, I was at
about chapter 5, reading along and loving it, when something happens. You know
that something that happens when you go back a few pages to say, wait, that
really didn’t happen, right? Jaw was on the floor. And then the story continued
to grow and get better.
If that wasn’t enough, sure enough 80% in,
wha-bam! Another twist! While I had my suspicions, I didn’t get the whole
story, but Callie laid it out and made me feel all warm and fuzzy.
I loved these characters, this story and Callie’s
writing. Her stories always have a smooth, understandable flow, even if there
are flashbacks. You always know where you are and what’s going on. I cannot say
enough amazing things about this book. One of my top reads of 2016!! "So...don't walk away for good. I get it if you have to walk away for now. But make sure you come back, okay? This isn't done yet and you know it." ~ Sully
That’s all it took
to send my brother’s and my life into a tailspin with no end in sight. I was
going to be something. I was going to be the best. I had the Olympics in my
sights. And it all went to shit in one flash. Brayden wasn’t ready to raise a
younger sister when I was thrown into his lap. He had his life and everything
going for him. Thankfully, he was still drafted to his dream hockey team. The
same one dad played for when we were growing up.
It took time, but I
started to get better, started to open up, started skating and even dating
again. I even thought I found the perfect guy for me.
Isn’t it funny how
guys hit on you when they know you’re not available, but when you’re single
they won’t give you the freaking time of day? I guess the game is more fun that
way. And for the captain of my brother’s team, that’s exactly what I was. A hat
trick is three goals in hockey. Some say three is a crowd and they might be
I was Gavin Hayes'
*A No Cheating
I really enjoyed Hat Trick and the athletic
hotties that were running rampant in this story. Forbidden love story with your
teammate’s baby sister…..a must read.
Brayden and Myla definitely had a messed up hand
dealt to them. The accident that took away their last parent and nearly destroyed
Myla, ends up bringing the two closer together. Brayden steps up to the plate
and not only becomes the big brother he needs to be, but the person Myla leans
on while recovering from the accident.
Gavin is a hit-it and quit-it kind of guy. No
woman makes it more than one night with him. It’s his MO, until he sees Myla
out on a date with a complete douche. More and more, he tries to find a way to
be with her, but it’s also his teammate’s baby sister. Myla is not like every
other girl to him, she’s special and he wants only her.
This was a quick and fun read. I would have loved
to see more of what Brayden went though with his sister’s relationship with
Gavin as well as his own relationship with a special lady that helped them
during some of their troubled times. Gavin and Myla were cute, sweet and super
fun. I really liked this book.
Alexander Bryant has
lived his entire life making everyone else happy. After meeting Lincoln, will
he have the courage to finally do what makes him happy?
Alexander – I like
to imagine myself a rebel – an ass-kicker that takes what he wants regardless
of what others think. I make my own path and flip off the people who don’t
agree. I laugh in the face of conflict. Nobody tells me what to do.
everything about me is a lie – past, present, and future. The Bryant name
requires certain things and all my decisions are based on those requirements. I
like football, but the family name demands I love it. I want to be an artist,
but the family name demands I be a lawyer. The family demands I fall in love
with a nice girl, but I’m falling for, well, the opposite of nice AND girl. I’m
a coward and a liar.
Lincoln – I like to
imagine myself a loner – a cold heartless bastard that takes what he wants. I
lived the biggest part of my life with parents that were ashamed of me for more
reasons that one could begin to count, so I trust no one.
I have a low
tolerance for bullshit and hate liars.
So why did I go and
fall in love with the biggest liar of them all?
So, this was my first T.S. McKinney book and I
loved it. I was in the mood for a good M/M romance and Touchdown surpassed my
expectations. I loved the characters and the emotional turmoil that both went
through. Their desires and pre-destined futures are constantly question for
what they are supposed to do and what they truly want to do.
Alexander is exactly what the blurb describes, a
young man who follows his family’s rules, wants and traditions to the letter….even
if it is the furthest from what he wants to do. He plays football like his
father and grandfather did and he’s being groomed to go to law school and be a lawyer….just
like his father and grandfather. He feels he’s living a lie, which just
multiplies when he meets Lincoln. He’s confused by the attraction and the
feelings that Lincoln stirs, but he can’t stop thinking about him.
Lincoln is completely enamored with Alexander,
the star quarterback for the local college, from the moment he sees him. Not
that Lincoln watches football, but he loved Alexander’s sexy body and his
responsiveness... Even though Lincoln can tell that Alexander is fighting all
his feelings. Lincoln can see the turmoil in Alexander’s eyes and as much as he
knows he should walk away, he can’t.
There was some super hot scene’s between these
two and some super over bearing family members that get involved. The whole façade
that Alexander has perfected starts to crumble and he has to decide what he is
going to stand up for. I was really surprised and proud by his decision, but
also really surprised by Lincoln’s reaction as well. I loved their dynamic and
their story. I would definitely read another T.S. McKinney book. Instant
