Epic love

Image
Nick and Joelle grow up together living right next door.  Close enough, that everyone in their hometown thinks they will end up together.  While that is certainly becoming a possibility, why is it assumed?

Joelle AKA Jo is only certain of one thing.  Her love for Nick.  It changes her, and almost kills her too.  Together, they make an amazing couple.  Too bad they have to find a way to live apart.
Certainly an interesting story with surprise after surprise inside!  The characters are honest, and truly devoted with a love that only builds over a lifetime.  I found this to be epic, perhaps even be a movie someday.  I would pay to see that.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Something more

Image
Happily Ever Alpha: Falling For The Billionaire is an anthology of 20 erotic stories about hot men, who have too much money.  This makes finding a wife even harder.  How do you know she is with you for you and not your bank account?
Because there were so many books inside, I chose Finding Mrs, Right by Debbie White to review.  What was the best part, is that Gabe is honestly trying to find "the one."  His friends fix him up, he meets many women and asks them out, and there are certainly complications.
It just is such a sincerely funny and sweet story.  I enjoyed seeing him try to find the best of the choices he meets.  Good read and honest picture of what trying to find someone can be like.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Charlotte AKA Charlie has known Evan for almost twenty years.  She has been in love with him the whole time.  He was married to her best friend, until tragedy struck.

Evan and his son are devastated by losing their wife and mother.  It is time for a change.  He moves them to where they will make new memories and still have a support system.  Little does he know, what he needed was there all along.
Such a terrific start to the Second Chance series.  Such amazingly fun characters with excellent banter and really HOT sexy times.  I laughed, cried, and cheered out loud reading this one.  I cannot wait to read the next book!  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Bristol and Marlon AKA Grip's story continues in this amazingly touching and yet intense story.  Grip has been chasing her since that very special moment back in college.  The best Spring Break of their lives.
Grip has all but given up, since the better part of a decade has past and still she will not give him an inch.  He has tried to move on - but at what expense?  Can the heart really forget what his head tells him he must?
This book was everything I was looking for, and more.  In typical fashion, this author gives us an intense relationship filled with twists and turns.  With a little suspense thrown in.  I loved it.  Even though I cried and laughed my way through it.  This was made better with some of our favorite characters and surprises thrown in.  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is the 3rd book in the L'Ange series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For key understanding of characters and series, I recommend reading in order.
Jon & Kelvin met during an event last year.  Found out they were fated mates.  When Kelvin rejected this due to his lifestyle and duty, Jon has to learn to live without him.
Kelvin has come to Jon's home and let his plans be known.  With all it will entail, they must survive, or die trying.  Can they make a future out of a painful past?
I was happily surprised as this story gave me many feels.  This author never disappoints as we feel for each character involved.  I loved seeing the main romantic interests learn about one another's strengths and appreciate each other more.  Really great addition to this series.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is book #7.5 in the Trident Security series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.
Tori and Tyler have a good thing going.  They are happy, in love, and not looking to change that.  It just becomes evident to both of them that they are attracted to Mitch.  
Mitch is not sure what to think about this development.  He knows he has always wanted Tori.  Now, with new feelings for Tyler emerging it is shaking his foundation.
I thought this story came across very real.  My only complaint was I felt a bit rushed with the solution at the end.  This does not take away from the story at all.  These characters just are really hot and fun to read.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Falling

Image
This is book #3, in the Billionaire Bad Boys series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.
Derek and Cassie have a kind of awkward history.  While their families can be a touchy subject, they are getting to know one another again.  Derek is ll grown up and hot enough to set Cassie aflame.
Cassie has enough problems on her plate by her own family right now.  Derek is just an added element that may or may not ruin her plans.  Now if they can compromise, there just might be a future ahead.
I know I always love books by this author, she is on my go to purchase list.  This story however, I was just not feeling it.  The banter almost felt forced.  The chemistry is obvious but there was so much that distracted.... I don't know.  This is just my humble opinion.  I can honestly only give it a 2/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

The start of a new series called Rugby, this book has a whole wonderful cast of funny characters and odd situations.  This book starts with our female lead scoping out our male lead to post on her blog.  What she says about the whole event, is where we begin our story.
While there is a direct cause and effect going on, we also get introduced to side characters that bring laughter, joy, and sometimes anger.  This book sure brings out the feels!  So much fun and many surprises for the reader.
This book was a lot of fun.  I eagerly turned the pages to find out what could possibly happen next.  The male lead was so sincere in his chase.  I found myself shipping the couple right from the start.  I am actually excited to read the books that are later in the series.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
