Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: Love Stings, Book #1


As a young woman, Abby Carmichael had it all—until the night a stranger tore it away…A year and half after the brutal sexual assault, Abby is finally starting to feel like her old self. Teaching dance classes with enthusiastic kids is just the kind of job she needs—far away from probing eyes or vicious intentions of the opposite sex. When she connects with one of her students, Natalie, it isn’t long until she meets her father, Deputy Ben James.

Ben James is just a regular guy, working to make a life for himself and his daughter…

That’s what Abby tells herself when her sudden attraction for Ben catches her off guard. Abby has been steering clear of men for obvious reasons, and the idea of wanting that kind of relationship is more terrifying than intriguing. But with his doe-eyed daughter tugging at her dance uniform, Ben takes notice.

He’s ready for love, but does her past hold too many secrets? 

After the assault, Abby coped by using heavy medication and fell into an ugly chain of one-night stands. But now that she’s out of rehab and finally on the right track, it’s only a matter of time before Ben finds out.

Will Abby be the true love Ben has always wanted? Or is she a tangled challenge, leading to yet another…
Broken Love?

What I Think

This was of my first ever review and I am glad that I have changed even if it is a little, I think at the time I wasn't sure how much I should say if I could spoil the book or give anything away, I just wasn't sure. I think I have grown over the year that I have been doing it.

What i was thinking in 2013....

I really like this book as there is no bondage sex but a lot of vanilla don't get me wrong a good book with it in it is a good read but this book was great without it. Ethan is very over protective of Brynne, in some parts a little to much but he has his reasons to be as we find out why.
This is the first book out of the Blackstone trilogy

What i think Now.......

Ethan is a very strong character, he has been to war and back for anyone that has had loved ones that have been through that you know what it is like.he tries not to get Brynne into it but when he goes in to one of his dreams sometimes he just has to tell her.

Brynne is a strong character herself you have to be to model naked, she doesn't like being told what to do which you will see as the story goes on. she doesn't know anything about Ethan knowing her father or about her being one of his jobs.

The book starts off with a phone call from one of Ethan's poker buddies asking if her could keep a eye out for his daughter while she studies and works over in London. Ethan wasn't sure if he should take the job as he doesn't mix his business with personal life, one night he was checking out if he should take the job Brynne had a piece of art that she was a model for in a Art show that he went to and fell for her the moment he seen her (Love at first site).

I could be wrong with how it goes but i haven't re-read the book and it was over a year with many book read since hoping I haven't mixed stories up.. sorry if i have.

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire



Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand.

Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby wants—and needs—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

What I Think

This book was amazing it pulls you in from the first word. it makes you laugh, cry and sit there saying why why.this book was in Abby's POV (point of view) so you understood where she was coming from and it sort of left me thinking what was Travis was going through. The second book to this is out now and I understand that it is the same story but in Travis POV (point of view) which is going to be amazing to read.

I will Be Re-Reading this book and adding a new review once done.

What I Think

I have read many books like this one where the Boss / Employee or Teacher / Student have a connection from the first moment the say each other.
I know that this is the rage at the moment but every second book has this kind of story line. Look I'm not saying it is a bad thing but it get to the point that you don't have to read the whole book to know what is going to happen.
Oh and why is there always a guys that is amazing that never gets the girl really at least once i would love to see him get her.

OK finished with my rant about that lets talk about why it was a good book to read. The author made it easy to like the characters. and of course it all came together so beautifully with a really good story line, it is the first book out of four in the series and of course i have all of them and will be reading them because i do want to see if it all works out. I will be giving this book a 3 reader rating as i did love it just didn't tick all the boxes.

What I Think

I was asked to read this book by the author herself and was very happy too.
What can I say about this book it had everything you ask for in a book romance, drama, I little bdsm but not to much that it gets boring and over done it has just enough.

This story follows Nathan Corvus and Ciara Solas it start with a normal pub crawl night with Ciara and her friend dressed up in costumes. they end up at Club H where Nathan and Ciara meet for the first time Nathan could not keep his eyes off her when Ciara sits down in a booth he ends up coming over and gets to know her but was not there for long, time past until there is a phone call with a PA job offer. things go from there and I don't want to give things away but it is at the top of my must read list for this year, keep a eye out for this author.

 The way the ending is wowed me it sort of came out of nowhere but it fits in to the story. The author is a amazing writer and I hope i get to review the next book in this trilogy or any of her work I love how she writes.

Book Rating

This amazing book deserves my top reader ratings, because it ticked all the right boxes for me.

About The Author

Meredith Wild picked up her first romance novel at the tender age of twelve, and shortly after put pen to word processor and made her first attempt at writing a love story inspired by those she so enjoyed reading well past her bedtime.
Her dream of writing took a back seat to college, parenthood and eventually entrepreneurship, which led her into the fast-paced and male-dominated high tech industry. With enough life experience for a few lifetimes, she now devotes her hours to writing contemporary adult romance, with a hint of kink.
Her debut novel Hardwired tells the story of billionaire bad boy, Blake Landon, and the object of his obsession, strong-willed tech startup CEO, Erica Hathaway. Hardwired will be the first of the Hardwired Series, while writing is underway for the second installment, Hardpressed.
When she isn’t writing or mothering, Meredith can be found sunbathing with an adult beverage.

Firefly Hollow by T. L. Haddix


In 1960, a tragic death in the family calls young Sarah Browning back from college to her Appalachian homestead. Unable to return to school and finish her degree, she finds herself facing a future that isn’t what she’d planned. Lost and grieving, she wanders onto her reclusive neighbor’s property where she stumbles across the all-too-attractive Owen Campbell, a man hiding secrets she’d only ever thought were legend.

Owen Campbell was raised on the folklore of Eastern Kentucky, tales of men and women with magical abilities from shape-shifting to healing powers. Rejected by those he loves because of his own abilities, he isolates himself from the world. When he meets Sarah, he’s faced with the tough decision of whether to let her in or stay hidden away to keep his heart safe.

Firefly Hollow is the first book in the "Firefly Hollow" series. Other titles include Butterfly Lane, Dragonfly Creek, Cattail Ridge, and Cricket Cove. Also by this author: the Shadows/Leroy Collection, a series of standalone Romantic Suspense novels. Titles include Secrets in the Shadows, Under the Moon's Shadow, Shadows from the Grave, Hidden in the Shadows, and In the Heart's Shadow.

About The Author

T. L. Haddix is the author of several series, including the Shadows Collection (Romantic Suspense), Firefly Hollow (Romance with light, folklore-paranormal elements, set in Appalachia), Sunset Motel (Erotic Romance, writing as Mallory Love), and the I. Ronik series (parodies, written as I. Ronik). She’s a self-described eccentric, somewhat reclusive stick in the mud who lives in Eastern Kentucky in a log cabin with her husband and their cat-children. Her hobbies include gardening, cooking, canning, sewing, and being short, and if she gets brave, she’ll soon add chicken-owner to the list.

She writes books about characters who are flawed but who somehow still manage to overcome the challenges thrown in their paths and reach for happiness with their soul mates. And while she can’t tell a joke in the real world to save her life, she tries to inject her characters’ lives with quirky, unintentional humor that surprises readers at just the right moment.

You can contact her through her website,, which contains links to all her books and a very boring blog.

What I Think

I dont know what it is about paranormal romances that sucks me in. is it the secret the character is hiding or is it how the other character will react to their secret of who they really are. I love the cover and it fits the story so well and to be honest that is one of the reason why i picked it up to read.

Some people might think it is a little slow to start off but once you get in to the book you understand why the author had done it that way and you will appreciate it. you get to understand the back story of the characters.

I am recommending this book to my followers and also putting it into my must reads for 2016 because there is one book you should this year is this book.
Im also giving this book a 5 reader rating as it earning every single one.

What I Think

I just want to start with that every time i read a Australian Authors book im surprised i dont know why and it might sound rude towards the Authors but honestly im proud to be an Australian reviewer/reader if this what is put out to the world to read and the author should be so proud too.

Okay to what i think about this book it made me giggle in places and crying like a baby in others i loved the characters from the start of the book, only bad thing about it and i think it is a personal thing was getting use to the changing of POV that is it, no really that is only thing i could say about it and thats not really bad. The storyline was amazing as well, i dont want to give much away it but really if you are looking for a great book to read to start year off then this is the book for you.

I could not put it down until the last word and i will be recommending it to everyone, my followers, family and friends. This is the first book of 2016 to be put on to my must reads list for this year. It is well worth it, congratulations to Emily for giving us this amazing book thankyou.
