Yet again another wrap up I am catching up on…
Kingdom’s Reign – Monique Moreau
A grieving biker. A brokenhearted woman. Can love heal their wounds? Since the death of his patch brother, Kingdom has felt nothing but rage and loss. Until, he meets Sage on a trip to a tattoo shop to get fresh ink for his fallen brother. She’s sexy. Brilliant. And exactly the kind of challenge that makes him ache. If asked whether he deserved her love, Kingdom’s straight-up answer would be hell no. But, nothing will stop him from taking what’s his. Not even her. Being a no-nonsense defense attorney, the second Sage caught her fiancé cheating she’d swore off men. While breaking that rule for a tatted up member of an MC seems like a monumentally bad idea, she can’t fight her attraction to Kingdom. When he invites her on a ride, she finds herself wanting so much more. Sage yearns to indulge in one of the sexiest and most dangerous men she’s met but fears risking her battered heart. Can the unlikely pair help each other move on from the wounds of the past? Or will club tensions with a rival MC find a way to use their weaknesses against them?
I really like the friendships in this book especially between Sage and Camilla like they got each other’s back and I love it. I especially love Greta (who I believe the next book is about) and I cannot wait. I just love how they all supported each other and it was no bitchiness like just proper good friendships and I love it. Other than that I really loved reading this book and the relationship between Kingdom and Sage and I will definitely be reading the sequel (hopefully no dodgy shit like that).
Ringo, Slippery Banana – Danielle Norman
FROM THE AUTHOR: Yes, this is an M/M story but it is not erotica. Ringo has been a character in my books since day one and Bananas is the name of the drag queen restaurant in my books that Ringo owns. This book is about an awesome man who looks fabulous in drag meeting a man who knows he is gay but has never admitted it to anyone because he lives in a world that he believes will crucify him. It is about opposites, give and take, and finding “home” in the people who choose to be in your life. –BLURB– A gorgeous man, a hot fireman, and a crazed gunman walked into a Drag Queen restaurant on a busy Sunday morning. It sounded like a joke until… The shooter fled, I was left bleeding on the floor, and the steamy hot fireman peered into my eyes. Why couldn’t I have choked and got mouth to mouth resuscitation? This was our story. Two men. One raging inferno of emotions. He was rugged boots and a red fireman helmet, who kept more than fire gear in his closet. Most days, I was glitter stilettos and red lipstick, and the only thing in my closet was a couple hundred pairs of fabulous shoes. I was ready for love, to shout it from the rooftop, he still needed a safety net. But, together we created a home
I loved this book so much and I was very excited to be back in this world once more with all these characters, I loved the story and Danielle’s writing was very good as always and I just love the way she can just pull you into her worlds.
Looking To Score – Alley Ciz
Looking To Score Release Date: September 9th, 2020 @𝗨𝗼𝗳𝗝𝟰𝟭𝟭: 𝗪𝗵𝗼’𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗴𝗶𝗿𝗹? #𝗖𝗮𝘀𝗮𝗻𝗼𝘃𝗮𝗪𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵 #𝗖𝗮𝘀𝗮𝗻𝗼𝘃𝗮𝘀𝗠𝘆𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘆𝗚𝗶𝗿𝗹 𝑻𝒉𝒆𝒚 𝒄𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒎𝒆 𝑪𝒂𝒔𝒂𝒏𝒐𝒗𝒂. Football God. Ladies Man. Campus Celebrity. Guys want to be me and girls want to bed me. Commitment? What’s that? Then I saw ℎ𝑒𝑟—tiny, gorgeous and oh so…𝗠𝗜𝗡𝗘. 𝑴𝒂𝒔𝒐𝒏 𝑵𝒐𝒗𝒂 𝒊𝒔 𝒂𝒏 𝒆𝒈𝒐𝒕𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒊𝒄𝒂𝒍 𝒋𝒆𝒓𝒌. Player. Persistent. Pain in the Pom-Pom. I don’t care if he’s the star of the gridiron or how tight his end is. I know his stats both on and off the field. My answer will always be 𝗡𝗢. The last thing I need in my life is another charmer who’s looking to score. LOOKING TO SCORE is book 1 in the U of J Series and is an enemies-to-lovers, new adult, college sports romance. If you like pint-sized sass queens for heroines, and too-charming-for-their-own-good playboy heroes you’ll love these two. There’s banter for days…so much so that these two characters are the stars of books 1, 2, and 3.
I love this couple, the connection they had and how much they supported each other, I really liked the nicknames they had for it each other with Kayla being Skittles and Mason being called Mase. I like the connection and chemistry between these characters and I loved how their relationship grew. Mason definitely grew on Kayla and I really liked how they went from friends to lovers.
I love the supporting characters in this book and they are so funny and I love these characters the relationship they all have with each other and how close they are.
So be prepared when you go into this book we are left with a cliffhanger and I was very annoyed about that like why so I have to wait so long? But I still love the book depsite the cliffhanger I mean I sort of knew it was coming due to the fact that Alley had announced the first three books in the new series was going to be about Mason and Kayla so I know I’m going to get more heartbreak. Certainly, this book broke my heart by the end of it, but I can’t wait to see what Alley does next!
The Dating Itinerary – Brooke Williams
As if it wasn’t bad enough to be deemed the “most single person” at her magazine’s office, budding reporter Penny has now been tapped to write a series of features called “The Dating Game.” From speed dating to Tinder, old-fashioned matchmakers to up-and-coming “dark dating,” Penny now has to go on a lot of dates. Silver lining: meeting new people should be fun, right? But running into her old rival, George, at her first dating event is decidedly not. Not only does the arrogant know-it-all have zero trouble attracting women, wherever Penny goes, somehow he just. Keeps. Showing. Up. Geo knows he’s right on the cusp of writing success with the chance to have his own syndicated column. All he has to do is follow his agent’s ideas for showcasing different dating avenues, and he’ll pull in enough to help his sister’s non-profit women’s shelter get off the ground. Sure, his itinerary is starting to look strangely similar to his old rival Penny’s, but all’s fair in love and syndication, right? The more they look for love in all the wrong places, though, the more they start to wonder if it was right in front of their noses all along. Still, the brutal dating scene just might end them, if these two don’t kill each other first.
So overall, I liked the plot and the story and the characters it just didn’t wow me. I liked the author’s style of writing, definitely enjoyed the dual pov that was given in the book.
The Prince Who Loved Me – Abigail Sharpe
He loves her. She loves him not…yet. Brandi Clayton spent years being a chameleon, trading on her looks for the security of having a man taking care of her. After all, being alone is what her mother taught her to fear. When her grandmother’s will surprisingly reveals Brandi inherited the family business, a new path opens up for her. She’s determined to take charge of Belle’s Medicinal Brewery and her own life. And if she can take that leap, she can find a man who loves her for exactly who she is. With her long-time friend Sebastien’s support, she’s bound to succeed, but she can’t take advantage of Sebastien forever. A royal with no responsibilities, Prince Sebastien of Casagnes spends his days near Brandi, sketching, and helping his friend whenever she calls. His love for her is like his art — safely hidden where it can’t be rejected. But when Brandi uploads her profile to dating sites, Sebastien fears losing the one woman who is his everything. Can this loyal royal find the courage to put his heart on the line and paint a picture for Brandi of their life together? The Prince Who Loved Me is a Just Add Peaches novel. Each book in the series is a stand-alone, passionate and playful contemporary romance, but you’ll want more than one juicy bite.
Okay so I’m not going to actually say much about this book, I really didn’t like it but don’t let my dislike effect what you think because I still 100% think you should give this book a shot. I just couldn’t get on with the characters or the plot I j just I really struggled.
Unwritten – Alex Rosa
Hailey Elwood always knew three things: she wanted to be a writer, she didn’t want to run her family diner, and she was madly and unconditionally in love with Caiden Anderson. When Hailey came to the conclusion that her family would never understand her dream to write, she decided to take her future into her own hands, but what she didn’t expect was Caiden’s ultimatum. Falling in love with Caiden was easy. Saying goodbye to him was not. Five years later, Hailey’s debut novel becomes an international bestseller, skyrocketing her to fame, but when her mother passes away, she’s forced to return to her hometown to confront the memories and the man that shaped her first book. She’ll argue it’s fiction, but Caiden knows better. Hailey wasn’t the only one who was left battered and bruised, and Caiden makes it a point to make her accountable chapter by chapter. Now with her publisher suddenly pushing her for a sequel, she isn’t sure how to write it when her future is still unwritten.
I loved this book, the plot, the story and the characters. This book hit close to home and I cried a lot of the way through.
This book is my new favourite of 2020.

Absolutely amazing. Nothing like I have read before. I am hooked. I need the next one. I need more. I need it. Just amazing. I have no words. I am shook!

That wasn’t in the agreement … A standalone romcom. Book 2 in the Love For Days series. Please note: Although this book can be read as a standalone, it is set after Man Crush Monday (Book 1 in the series) so will contain spoilers
Everything about this book was great and I really enjoyed reading it and it was just so cute. I really love Theo and Lucie!
My Secret Irish Baby – Sienna Blake
Fate gave them this second chance. Are they brave enough to take it? Nine years ago, I met Michael O’Sullivan over a stolen bottle of red and a platter of bacon-wrapped dates. Handsome. Perfectly poised. Fiercely intelligent. Fastest rising star of the Dublin legal world. Top thirty most successful under thirty. But none of that mattered to me—only that he made me feel like my heart was full of sunshine when he danced with me in the rain. Nine years ago, he broke my heart when he walked away. Now I don’t have time to dance in the rain. I’m working several jobs to support my kid. She is the light of my life. She looks like me but with his eyes. I’ve just been assigned to assist a visiting hotshot lawyer—the arrogant, bossy, rude ass who can’t even be bothered to sign his emails with his full name. Guess who my new boss is? I just have to get through the next few weeks without Michael finding out my secret. Or letting him break my heart again. Not easy when he’s determined not to let me go again.
I really missed seeing the fmaily in this book and I mean Michael’s brothers and mum like we’ve had so much of them in the other books I was expecting it to be the same in this book but they were barely there and it made me kinda sad because I love reading about the family. When they did appear honestly that’s when this book changed for me and I began to like it better.
I have to admit I had mixed feelings reading this, and even now after a few months I still have mixed feelings about it.
Bad Prince – Lilian Monroe

I could probably get arrested for trespassing on royal property, but as long as I don’t get caught, I’ll be fine. …Until the Crown Prince himself finds me wandering around the castle unsupervised. He’s tall, broad, and he slays me with one look. The most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen in my life. The second his eyes meet mine, I know I’m in trouble. Big, Prince-shaped Trouble with a capital ‘T’.

Grab a cold glass of water… this contemporary Cinderella retelling is about to get hot!g Note: Previously titled Knocked Up by Prince Charmin
I really loved Elle’s adoptive family they were so cute and protective of her I loved it! We all need a friend like Dahlia! I loved the relationship between Elle and Charlie.
I have to admit I was hoping for more baby in this. Overall cute story.
So another wrap up done! Hopefully I’ll start being on time I wouldn’t count on it though.
