Review……Courage to Fight by Pavan Kaur

courage-to-fight-by-pavan-kaur-1

She’s broken and he’s back, a completely captivating and heartbreaking story……..

So at the end of book one we read that Scarlett broke up with Rhett after his fight with Zach because he wouldn’t open up to her so now its the weeks after that……..

Scarlett was so broken that he didn’t knock her door down and fight for what they had. Rhett left and went back to England and she heard nothing from him. Then she returns to work and finally piecing herself back together when she heads to clean the room that she and Rhett had shared so many special memories and is faced with the man that broke her heart wide open………

Rhett has pulled all strings to get his next fight moved to Las Vegas in hope that he can get Scarlett back. He is a mess without her and can only survive when she is “always by his side”. Scarlett does not welcome him with open arms and tells him that unless he is going to open up to her about his demons she doesn’t want anything to do with him.

Scarlett can’t function when she feels him near and his presence blocks all her senses but he always knows what she needs. When Rhett returned from England he brought his mum with him so in this book we meet her and get a chance to see how much she wants Scarlett to be part of Rhetts life. CeCe is also in this book and has a hugh part in this book not because she is a jealous ex but she is now Rhetts WIFE……. Yes I know I could hardly believe it too but what is the story behind this marriage so many question!!!!!!

This book goes through the ups and downs of Scarlett and Rhetts relationship he does win her back in the promise to talk but as every day passes she is still further from  what haunts him. Together as a couple they have grown so much she trusts Rhett so much and always feels loved and safe when she is with him. The one thing in this book that is very clear they love each other so much and they most definitely are soulmates but so much lies in the way of there happily ever after….

Rhetts fight is fast approaching and a weeks after he must return to England to start his training for his next big fight. He wants Scarlett to think about coming with him but he still hasn’t opened up about his demons she has had enough so he is given the final ultimateum, talk or leave and don’t ever contact her again……..

So we are all left at the end of this book our hearts breaking and swooning at his final attempts to win her over but what will Scarlett do will she fight or will she close the door????

Loved this book and I cannot wait for book three so I’m giving it a well deserving 5 stars

I was given an ARC for an honest review

New Release……Pucked Off by Helena Hunting is LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Profile portrait of businessman working on laptop  in black suit at studio

IT’S LIVE!!!!!!!

***A Standalone novel in The Pucked Series***

I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance.”

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do.

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

Excerpt:

Armed with my clipboard, I walk down the hall to the waiting room. Lance is impossible to miss. Despite the fact that he’s wearing a sweatshirt and the hood is covering half of his face, he’s more than six feet of broad, hockey-playing man.

He’s so wide his shoulders encroach on the chairs on either side, which would explain why no one is sitting next to him. He’s slouched down so his head rests on the back of the chair, and his hands are clasped in his lap, a baseball cap hanging off one knee. His lips, plush and soft—I know since I’ve had them on mine; it might have been a decade ago, but I remember it clearly—are parted. He looks like he’s asleep.

I clear my throat. “Lance Romero?”

He doesn’t move.

Bernadette, the receptionist, gives me a meaningful look.

I clear my throat again and call his name a second time. He jolts awake and the hood falls back, exposing his face. It’s not in good shape. He has a black eye and bruises on his left cheek. There’s a fly bandage across one eyebrow.

Sadly, he’s still hot.

He blinks a few times, yawns, and smacks his lips, his tongue touching the split in the bottom one. His gaze sweeps the room and finally lands on me. Heat explodes in my cheeks and courses through my limbs, warming me from the inside out as he starts at my sneaker-clad feet and roams up over my yoga pants to my company-issued T-shirt before stopping at my face. I can’t look directly at him for more than a couple of seconds. I sincerely hope he doesn’t remember me. I cannot go there and also be professional.

I’m sure the smile he gives me has melted many a panty off a slutty bunny. Mine stay right where they’re supposed to, wedged up my ass.

I force a polite, professional veneer. “I’m ready for you now.”

Review…..Courage to Trust by Pavan Kaur

30747951

Its sexy, dark and simply fabulous………

Scarlett Parker is a maid in a hotel in Las Vegas. Scarlett works hard to pay for her brothers education and she daily tries to fight the demons of her past. Scarlett’s parents were killed when she was five years old and she and her brother were put into foster care and this is where Scarletts life changed and made her in to the person she is today. Scarlett has never had a relationship with a man she gives them one night of hot sex and leaves but that is until the UFC fighters come to stay at the hotel and Rhett Johnson sets his sights on her and he wants more………..

Rhett Johnson is a UFC fighter. When Scarlett is assigned to cleaning his room he couldn’t take his eyes of her. He had never seen such a beautiful woman before and she had no clue who he was or what titles he held and this made her more appealing. There was an instant chemistry between them and Rhett feels a certain pull towards Scarlett. Rhett needs Scarlett and he decides this is a fight he definitely is going to win……

The hottness in this book is seriously off the charts. Scarlett and Rhett in the bedroom consume each other nothing else matters in that time. Rhett from the start wanted more with Scarlett but this is where the darkness looms in Scarlett. She has never had a relationship she is scared that when he finds out about her past that he will leave and that will break her.

Rhett works daily to gain Scarletts trust but while winning that his own demons start to surface but unlike Scarlett he can’t talk about them. Scarlett tries to get him to open up but she is running out of patients. She knows Rhett loves her and he makes her feel safe and happy but his nightmares are getting worse and he scares her. This is something Scarlett can’t have in her life she is fighting so hard to hold her own life together she can’t try and solve  Rhetts too and especially if he can’t talk to her.

Rhett has one big fight to end the season and he wants Scarlett by his side. Can she do this for him or will it all get too much? This is book one in the Fortitude Series so we will have to read book to to find out……

I loved this book it was hot as hell, edgy, dark and alot of suspense. Rhett puts Scarletts needs first he wants to protect her and would do anything to keep her safe. There are some swoony moments but this couple have a long road to go and I can’t wait to see where this goes. Scarlett and Rhett are great characters they both carry alot of baggage and reading it I was hoping they would fight them together but il have to read book two to find out…..

This was the first time I had read any of this authors work and I ahve to say I will be reading more.

I give this book 4.5 stars

I was given an ARC for an honest review….

Review……Park Avenue Prince by Louise Bay

download

Are you ready to meet Sam Shaw………….

This book is simply magnificent as Louise Bay always does she writes a book that is additive, romantic and incredibly sexy.

Sam Shaw is a wealthy businessman in Manhattan who only recently bought himself an apartment in Park Avenue. Sam worked hard for everything he had as his parents died when he was twelve and Sam had to go in to care. He decided he needed some art for his new apartment so he and a friend decided to check out an art exhibiton of a new artist at Grace Astor Fine Art Gallery. This is where Sam first met Grace Astor and the attraction was instant but Sam never got attached to women, he never wanted more with anyone. Could that change???

Grace Astor was brought up in an apartment in Park Avenue she adored her father and always wanted to meet a man that would love her like her father loved her mother. Grace’s previous boyfriends had all treated her badly and she had only broke up with her last boyfriend for cheating on her. When she met Sam Shaw at the exhibition he wasn’t the type of man she would usually go for but she did feel a certain pull between them. She knew she would have to see him again when he purchased several pieces of art from her private collection and asked her to over see the delivery.

Grace and Sam had a strong intense chemistry between them. Grace is torn for a short time with the whole he is her client saga but when she is around him she can’t think straight he body reacts when he is near and she has no control over these feelings. These two don’t restrain themselves for long but will Sam let her walk away or is there more to this….. This book had me in frenzy of OMG he let her leave and OMG why is she not answering his calls but one thing is for sure Louise Bay can write a sex scene.

Sam was developing feelings, Grace had fallen in love and with all the furniture and art shopping there were doing they forgot about the past and knew that what they were experiencing with each other felt right to them and that was all that mattered until tradegy struck and how would Sam react to this…….

This book is so full of emotion with Sam’s past and Grace not wanting to be the Park Avenue Princess she was brought up as. They are a perfect match Grace understands how Sam’s mind works and even in her darkest times she will excuse him for hurting her. I loved how this book showed Grace and Sam develop as a couple the ease and understanding they had for each other had my poor heart swooning. Grace is the perfect heroine strong, independent and loves her man fiercely and Sam worships the woman who stole his heart and helped him create his legacy……………

I give this book a well deserving 5 stars

Review……A Thousand Letters by Staci Hart

32797060

One love, one decision but a second chance will they take it…….

Elliot and Wade loved each other from the second they laid eyes on each other. Wade was going to join the army and after Elliot graduated she was going to follow him that was the plan. Wade changed his mind and wanted Elliot to come with him straight away and Elliot’s family disapproved and at seventeen that made her scared so she begged him to go back to the plan but he wouldn’t. Wade left Elliott that day broken she had no idea how she could mend herself back together she wrote him “a thousand letters” explaining that she had made a mistake but he never replied.

Now seven years later Wade must return home unexpectedly because his father is dying. Sophie Wade’s sister is Elliots bestfriend and when she received the news of her fathers illness she needed her bestfriend so Elliott being the gentle person she is put her own feelings aside and is there for her bestfriend no matter what. Wade and Elliott didn’t know how to approach each other so much had been left unsaid all those years ago but one thing it certain they still love each other but can they tell each other……

This book is a whirl of emotion its will take you on a journey of how people react differently to grief and how a love that is so strong can never end it will just be blessed with understanding and forgiveness. Wade runs hot and cold on Elliott all the time and this leaves her confused because she still loves him so much but doesn’t know if he feels the same but for every hurtful thing he says to her she can excuse his behaviour because she knows in her heart that he doesn’t mean to hurt her. Elliott is one of the most gentle people I have ever read about, she excuses the bad behaviour of her family daily and now Wade the man she loves she excuses him because of what the war did to him and now hes home he must deal with his fathers affairs and spend time with him in his last days.

I absolutely loved this book it was a true second chance romance book. It covered so many topics and the poetry quotes in it made it truely romantic and heart warming. This book will melt your heart and have you swooning all over the place from brief touches to full on kisses this book is over-flowing with chemistry. From the moment I saw the cover of this book I wanted to read it and I was definitely not disappointed. This is a book I would read again and find myself consumed by the story and that is why i give this book a well deserving 5+ stars.

“It’s always been you, Elliot. Every night when I lay my head on the pillow, every morning when I rise, it’s only you. Tell me I’m not too late. Tell me there’s still a chance for us, and I will spend every breath I have earning your forgiveness. Tell me that you still love me, and I will give myself to you completely”
