Say You’ll Stay Review – Corinne Michaels


Heart stopping, gripping and completely amazing. This book had me crying, laughing and swooning all over the place I loved reading it and I loved Zachary and Presley’s story.

Presley is a married woman with twin boys her life it pretty perfect until she arrives home from work to find that her husband has betrayed her and in that one afternoon her whole life has fell apart. Presley and her children have been left with nothing and she must return to her home town in Tennessee and work on her parents ranch to help pay her debts. Presley hates the thought of moving back home as she had not visited the town in over a decade because it shared too many memories of her first love Zachary Hennington.

Zachary Hennington is a cowboy and drop dead gorgeous just for good measure. He and Presley were childhood sweethearts had their whole lives planned out together. One day seventeen years ago everything changed and they both went there separate ways with heavy hearts. Now after such a long time can love be given a second chance when Zachary learns that Presley is back in town.

“I’ve never stopped loving her.

I knew I never had, but now theres no way I can deny it.

I’ve moved on in some ways but Presley…shes everything”

There were some fantastic moments in this book mainly the one where there eyes meet across the bar OMG the sparks were flying they couldn’t take there eyes of each other.

One of the funniest moments for me was when Zachary called to see Presley at her office at the Ranch and she got really mad and threw a stappler at him amount other things.

Zachary and Presley were made to love each other. He knew what she was thinking by the look on her face and being with him gave Presley a sense of comfort and assurance that her life would get better. Zachary was determined that he would wait for Presley until she was ready (major swoon).

” I want to see where this goes, and if it works I want to take care of you.

Theres alot of shit we have to work through. This isn’t going to be easy Darlin’

I don’t ever want to hurt you”

This book is most definitely the perfect example of a second chance romance, of two people who are destined to be together but have taken different paths in the past but are now brought together. It contained a lot of emotion, hurt, grief, betrayal, loss and love but they are were brought across really well by Corinne Michaels in the writing of the book and I feel this is what gripped me to it.

Definitely a book that touched my heart and I couldn’t recommend it enough and I give it a 5+ stars!!!!

My favorite quote from the book……………………..

” I loved you since I was twelve years old.

You were my first kiss, my first love,

the first man to touch me.

I want you to kiss me and I need to kiss you”



Stuck-Up Suit Review – Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

stuck up suit

Stuck-Up Suit has to be one of the funniest books I have ever read. Soraya and Grahams relationship is definitely one with a difference….

Graham Morgan is the wealthy owner of Morgan Financial Holdings and just happens to be drop dead gorgeous which is always a bonus. Graham was taking the train to work one morning and he accidentally dropped his phone as he was exiting the train and that was the start of his and Soraya’s journey.

Soraya Venedetta is a young witty and attractive columnist who takes the train to work each morning. Soraya noticed Graham talking on his phone and what drew her attention to him was he was having a rather heated conversation. When Graham exited the train and dropped his phone Soraya picked it up to give it back but Graham was gone. She eventually tracked down who Graham was after having the phone a while and so she headed to Morgan Financial Holdings.

Graham and Soraya’s first encounter ended something like…..

“who the fuck do you think you are…The Wizard of Oz?

I’m pretty sure I would have easier access to Queen Elizabeth” 

and Soraya leaving his phone on his receptionists desk with three pictures of herself on it, one of her cleavage, legs and rear I thought this was absolutely priceless definitely the funniest part of the book for me…

After Graham had his phone back and Soraya had calmed down they began to send texts to each other and at this stage the race was on Graham set out to find Soraya by using the pictures she left on his phone. Then one morning on the train it all happened and the sparks flew as they had there first encounter and they both knew at this stage that the feeling they had for each other were dangerous…..

“You have no idea how dangerous I am when I want something. I will stop at nothing to get it. And there’s nothing more I want right now than you. But if you can honestly tell me now that you have no interest in me, I will walk away, and you’ll never hear from me again. If the fact that you’re shaking in your boots right now is any indication, you’re feeling exactly what I am” 

Soraya brought out the best in Graham as there romance blossomed and he was a support to her with the issues she was carrying with her regarding her father and together the complemented each other. Soraya was witty and fun and changed her hair colour to suit her mood and Graham most definitely was a stuck up suit but opposites attract.

Trouble is never far away in romance and when Graham is dealt with the revelation that he has a daughter from his previous relationship that he knew nothing about and now also had an ex who would like nothing more than to pick up where they left off because she off course is the correct person for Graham and always has been although she did cheat on him with his best friend how nice…………..

I really felt for both of them trying to deal with this awkward situation as Graham only wanted Soraya and to get to know his daughter and try and build a relationship with her but his ex made Soraya feel that if she was not with Graham that her child would have a proper family unit.

“This is a chance for Chloe to have her family. Graham and I have a lot in common. We share a common business, travel in the same social circles and have a child together”

Even through the hard times they had to face together the were still witty and very much in love and love always conquers all……

“I fucking love you, Soraya Venedetta”

“I love you too,Suit. I think I fell in love with you before I even met you” 

I Loved this book it in my top 10 favourite books and most definitely worth the read……..

The Strongest Steel Review – Scarlett Cole

strongest steel

The Strongest Steel was a book that stayed with me and caught at my heart strings. Trent and Harper’s relationship was built on trust, understanding and friendship………

Harper Connolly is a young woman who had suffered an horrific attack by her boyfriend of two years. As a result Harper had to leave her old life behind and start a new one in fear that he would attack her again. Everyday day Harper has to look at the physical reminder of what he did as her back is covered in scars from the attack. As a way of regaining her life as a young woman again she decided to have a tattoo designed to cover her scars. Harper had heard of Trent Andrews a well known tattoo artist who specializes in inking over scars.  So this is how they’re journey began one night Harper found herself outside Trent’s tattoo studio – Second Circle Tattoo Studio……

“Can you tattoo over this??”she turned her back to him 

Trent Andrews is a very well known tattoo artist and it helps that he is extremely easy on the eye. When Harper arrives at his studio at one in the morning he knew there was more to this woman in front of him and was most definitely going to help her. Trent was completely understanding about what Harper had went through and wanted her to feel at ease with him which as a reader had me completely smitten with him from the start. He was patient, understanding and kind.

“You ready to show me how amazing you are at this?”

“Always,” he said, grinning at her.

“One amazing, bad-ass tattoo coming right up.”

I loved this book I was completely hooked and found it hard to put down. Trent wasn’t your typical hero going to save the day but he was a hero with rough edges and a past of his very own. He was a constant support for Harper and helped her to get her life back again instead of only existing in the world. Trent will have you swooning………..

“Amazing at pool, amazing at tattoos, amazing at hugs.
Anything you’re not amazing at?”
“Staying away from hot chicks with bad ass tattoos.”

This book had me full of emotion I truly felt for Harper and admired her for everything that she had come through and that now she was trying to get her life back. Trent becomes very protective of Harper early on in there relationship and this helps Harper feel secure and aids her healing. Although it might seem at times in the book that all is well and they will live happily ever after but that it not the case Trent and Harper have to deal with various situation and the secrets that they keep from each other but nobody ever said love was easy……..

“You guys are like mac ‘n’ cheese.”
“Mac ‘n’ cheese?”
“Yeah,” Cujo replied. 
“They both taste good on their own, you know.

But together they are the best comfort food ever”

I love love love this book can’t recommend it more really good read not predictable or boring but it is romantic, swoony, fun, sexy and then we have the tattooed Alpha male what more could we want……..

“My mom shows up,you’re naked,I have a raging hard on,
and yet you focus on my middle name?”
“I didn’t see you as a Vincent.”

The Strongest Steel is forged by the hottest fire

A Million Dirty Secrets Review – C.L Parker

million dirty secrets

I was recommended this book by a friend at a time when I didn’t know what to read next. At first I wasn’t sure what to make of it but I found in the first few chapter that i knew I was going to love this story. Lanie and Noah’s story is full of humour, innocence, family loyalty and suspense…..

Lanie Talbot is a young beautiful woman with a terminally ill mother who needs an operation. Lanie’s father had to give up work to care for her mother and no job means no health insurance. To help save her mothers life Lanie decides to auction herself at a sex club but what made Lanie a very interesting bid is that she is a Virgin!!!!!

“And probably the most valuable asset of all is that her innocence is completely in tact. 

This, my fine gentlemen, is a Grade A Virgin.

Unsullied, untouched…. pure as the fresh fallen snow.

Perfect to train…. No?

With that said, lets start the bidding at one million dollars and may the luckiest bastard win” 

Noah Crawford a wealthy businessman who purchases Lanie for two million dollars. This arrangement for Noah was about having the same woman in his bed every night attending to his every need, a fantasy for most men but Noah thought he could just buy that fantasy No strings attached or No emotions!!

“Ten minutes to purchase her.

One Hour to get her lips wrapped around my c**k.

Three days to taste her juices. Four days to pop her cherry.

Two weeks to loose my fucking mind shit”

Lanie and Noahs journey together was amazing, at the beginning they both had their masks firmly in place to play their roles of master and sex slave but as feeling and emotions crept in to there relationship the masks began to slip….. The banter between them both was fantastic and I am yet to read another book that has such strong chemistry between a couple and this was displayed so well by C.L Parker in the writing of the books. Lanie’s use of words for certain body parts had me laughing while reading she referred her lady bits as ” Double Agent Coochie” and called Noah’s Colossal cock “Wonder Peen” absolutely hilarious as she talked about them in the third person…..

“The cooch squealed in delight when she was finally reunited with wonder peen.

I could almost see the star-crossed lovers as they ran across a

field of daisies to be in each others arms”

A Million Dirty Secrets is the first book of the Million Dollar Duets Series, so book one does end with a cliffhanger but Book 2 is available to buy so all is good……

This is one of my Top 10 favourite books its not your typical boy meets girl story but Noah and Lanie’s story is of two people who enter in to an arrangement that was never for them to fall in love but to help both of them through difficult periods in their lives and maybe for Noah to heal old wounds. The tender moments that were displayed in the books were romantic and heart warming and definitely had me swooning….. what woman wouldn’t like her man driving four hours to see her in the middle of the night because he misses her!!!!!!

” Your worth every penny I spent for you and more. Happy Anniversary Delanie”

They both started out their journey together as strangers but ended as the most important person in each others lives but it was not plain sailing to get to where they ended but you must read the book to find that out…..
