Just a bit of Complete...

“Firecracker, does this feel like I don’t desire you?” Marshall grinds his groin into my ass, letting me feel his thickness. The resistance I have been putting up falls away like a thin layer of clothing. Heat settles in the pit of my stomach and a dull ache forms between my thighs.“I’ve wanted you every day since I saw you almost ten years ago, Rachel,” Marshall whispers into my neck as he nips along the column making me shudder. “I’ve never stopped wanting you,” he continues, his voice coming out gruff due to my grinding down on his thick, pulsing length. “I was just waiting on you to realize you wanted me too, and to stop being so fucking difficult.” “I’m sorry,” I apologize, because I really am. So caught up in my insecurities and fear, that I almost ruined the best thing to ever happen to me. “You were never in danger of losing me, Rae,” he lets me know while he holds my face in his hands. “’Til death, baby. Only death will keep us apart; and even then…” My lips crash to his with nothing more to say between us. Our bodies long to communicate in the best way we know how. Our bodies long to connect. My skin buzzes with heightened arousal as our tongues touch, an electric current zapping through me. “If you leave me, this earth, I will find you, Rachel,” he threatens. “You can’t leave me. Whatever happens, tell me we’ll face it together; that we’ll get through it together.” How can I deny him that? He wants to partake of my joy and my sorrow. He wants to be there with me through whatever life throws at us and here I am: wanting to bail. “If you leave me, I will rampage through Hell to drag you back to me,” he asserts and I can’t help but chuckle lightly. “You assume I’d go to Hell?” I question. “Hell is reserved for evil people, I hear,” he states. “And evil would be leaving me on this Earth to let other women have their ways with me.” That causes me pause. Looking over my shoulder, I pin him with serious eyes as I tell him, “If I die and that happens, know that you will have no peace. I will haunt you until you off yourself.” Marshall only smiles against my neck before saying, “Ditto.”


My Review of Complete...


Amazon/Goodreads Rating: 4/4

In Patti's Imagination Rating: 8/8

 After waiting 7 years for his love to come back to him Marshall will not let anything or anyone take Rachel from him. Sometimes, though, there are complications that you can't control. Can they prove that love conquers all or will they be torn apart - permanently?
I fell in love with Marshall and Rachel while reading Complicated, and although this is marked as a standalone novella you really need to read the first book to understand their pasts. They are such strong characters and you can't help but root for them. As always when reading Ms. St. James' books i finished with a huge smile on my face.

I have had the absolute joy of watching Gia Riley grow and transform as an author from her first book, Between the Pain and now I'm so proud as she releases her next book, Rock the Boat. No matter what variation of romance Gia chooses to write she has the ability to immerse me into her stories, whether it be about nurses, college students or discovering your first love as a teenager. Now she struck it big with a HOT rockstar, Easton Beck, and the insecure, broken woman who catches his eye.

They meet on a Perfect Match Cruise, only neither are truly looking for forever. Both have painful secrets and pasts they're hiding from but you can't run from cupid's arrow! This is a definite must read, but if you've read Ms. Riley's books before you should be prepared. She brought out a whole new level of steam and sensuality in this endeavor!

My husband loves this book and he didn't even have to read it!

Title: E.S. Carter
Series: Love by Numbers, #4
Author: E.S. Carter
Expected Release Date: Late March, 2016


Unlucky for some.
Including me.

The woman I loved left me on the thirteenth.
Thirteen months of living together and she walked out the door without looking back, straight into another man's arms.
She was kind enough to leave something to remind me of her: thirteen thousand pounds worth of debt.

Thirteen; the day I lost my nuts.
Well, I didn't lose them, cancer took them from me. Better to be a man without balls than one without life.
Still, thirteen sucked... until it didn't.

Until her.
Thirteen might just be my new lucky number.

*Thirteen is book #4 in the 'Love by Numbers' series. It is interconnected but can be read as a standalone.*

“I don’t give a shit who or what he is. We can protect you, Joy. I can protect you.” Tears welled in her eyes and her bottom lip quivered. It halted my tirade a fraction, but I needed to get this out in the open. It was time. We had to deal with it and move on, get away from this shit.

Ten Thousand Words by Kelli Jean is LIVE!
Dive into Xanthe and Oliver's story today!

TITLE: Ten Thousand Words 
AUTHOR: Kelli Jean 
GENRE: Romantic Suspense 
PUBLICATION DATE: February 15, 2016


There’s danger that neither of them can escape.

Reclusive author, Xanthe Malcolm, likes her private and quiet life. However, when her wildly-popular series Paranormal Hunters gets picked up by a big-time publishing agency, she’s thrust into the limelight alongside sexy, photographer-turned-cover model, Oliver Fairfax. Upon meeting, the chemistry between the quirky writer and arrogant model quickly intensifies, creating a steamy page-turner of events made for romance novels.

Then comes the plot twist.

Xanthe has secrets that have kept her bound to silence.

And the truth has Oliver questioning every unspoken word.




We're doing another dual review, since neither Anita nor I could resist this book!
Amazon/Goodreads rating: 5/5
In Patti's Imagination rating: 10/10
"You look into my soul every day, Xanthe," I told her, taking one of her hands and bringing it to my lips. "It's yours. I think it always has been."

Nothing could summarize this book better than that. When we first meet Oliver Fairfax, he's a bit of a dick. Like Xanthe, I warred with whether he was perfect or the biggest asshole I'd ever met. But nothing sucks me into a story more than redemption and growth in a character, and Ollie truly turns everything around. Not only is he worthy of Xanthe, he elevates her, lifts her to emotional heights she had refused to climb before him. It's nothing short of another epic love story from Kelli Jean.

Lest  you think that's all there is to this story (trust me, that alone is enough), there is another element at work here. Xanthe, Rex, Jaime, Ricki, Ronen, Lilla, and Aunt Ellen are all involved in something much bigger than them. This story launches that larger picture mostly from the perspective of Ollie, which is to say, the reader knows very little for most of the course of the narrative. And I believe that's effective here, so I won't tell you the details, other than to say that there is more. Much more.

What I will say is this: you will laugh, you may cry, you will swoon, and you will love every moment. I wish I'd had more time to just sit and devour this book. Every damn thing kept jumping into my way when I wanted to read non-stop. I will be sure to leave space in my schedule to inhale the rest of this series. I know I'll want to do that, because we have just hit the tip of the iceberg here. In the meantime, I will suggest that you 1-click this as fast as your fingers will allow. Trust me, you'll be glad you did.


Amazon/Goodreads rating: 5/5
In Patti's Imagination rating: 10/10

This freaking book!! I'm not so articulate as Patti is so I'm gonna just fangirl all over Oliver while she says in nice words why he is the best book boyfriend I have read THIS YEAR!! 

I mean, besides having a new found love of beards, which Ollie of course has, he's incredible. He made mistakes but he realized them. Maybe sometimes it took him a while, or a few miles but he made amends. I liked him for it. And for his beard! Lol

Xanthe is insecure - secure - fighting woman. She is the most layered person I have ever met. She is strong, but sensitive. She is crazy, yet very sane. She's a great friend and simply an amazing person. She was a lot of fun to get to know. 

Kelli, you did an amazing job with this book. I enjoyed it very much and cannot wait to read more of your work. For a first book I have ever read from you, this is a hit. You got yourself another fan!


Born and raised in Miami, Kelli Jean traded the tropical heat for the arctic. Now she deals with twenty-four hour daylight in the summer, zero sunlight in the winter, and believes the Northern Lights make up for the mind-boggling amount of ice and snow she has to put up with for seven months out of the year.

She's surrounded by mountains and ocean and sheep, and claims her bizarre sense of humor is what keeps her sane. The insane don't know they're insane.

Kelli uses her imagination to create worlds she can escape to from the mundane tasks of everyday life, such as washing the damn dishes and vacuuming up Legos off the floor--and don't get her started on the mad amount of cat hair on the end of the couch. She gave up on that a long time ago. When the household goes to sleep at night, she writes down everything that happened in her head while doing such tedious chores. But she enjoys living in her own head, so that's pretty cool.

Technology terrifies her. She can barely turn on a computer, and was completely shocked when she'd actually written a book on one. To this day, she has no explanation for this baffling mystery. It took her three years to realize she can take screen shots of messages and pictures of bearded, tattooed men with her phone. Now that she's mastered this task, her phone is slowly dying, and she's nervous that she's going to have to buy a new one and it will take her another three years to learn how to use it.
