Having it all isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

When Sarah Sullivan’s perfect life blows up in front of her, she finds herself crawling back to the one place she never saw herself returning: Home.

At thirty-one, Sarah had it all. Perfect job, perfect boyfriend, perfect life. When all that is taken away from her, she is left heartbroken and angry and desperate enough to let her life swallow her whole…for a while.

Fending off love and the pursuit of happiness completely, Sarah vows to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. She creates a list of goals for herself—starting with a much needed shower—and constructs a plan to dig herself out of her rut. What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the arrogant new employee her parents have hired to work on an addition to their home. Enter Jack Calloway, the handsome, charming, lickable foreman with an insatiable effect on Sarah’s girly parts.

Jack accepts the job, but gets more than he bargained for. Unable to ignore his racing hormones—and calm his temper—over the obnoxious woman who clouds his judgment, Jack pulls her in and steals her heart until she finally surrenders. But is he up for the challenge of picking up the pieces of Sarah’s broken heart? Can he carry her out of her rut?

Loved, Loved, Loved!
Let me just say… I finished this book, and was working on another book and my mind is still with Jack! -sigh- So, yes… I still have a hangover, someone help me! Can you?
Hollyfield took us on a trip through heartbreak, depression, recovery, falling in love, romance, drama, humor… all in a short time in this book. I loved how it started out slow, and got to build with the story.
Jack, come on! He is an amazing character. Who doesn’t love a construction worker? He owns a company, he is successful, and a charmer.
Sarah realizes there is more to life than people crushing her heart. She is easy to connect with and also the narrator throughout, it is her story to tell.
I will definitely am stalking Ms. Hollyfield from now on! Go check this book out. You know you want to.

Review: The Celtic Fan

TheCelticFanTitle: The Celtic Fan
Publisher: Celtic Muse Publishing
Author: Deanndra Hall
Genre: Contemporary Romance

★ ☆★ ☆★ 5 Stars!

The Celtic Fan. It’s a number one bestseller on every list. It’s a love story for the ages. And it’s a mystery. At least its author is. Nick Roberts has never been seen. He doesn’t do interviews. He doesn’t answer fan mail. He doesn’t do late-night talk shows, or book signings, or conferences. No one knows who he is. Everyone is looking for him; websites have been set up offering rewards for finding him. Four old friends plan their annual road trip. It’s been a toss-up every year, with each being different (and some not so good). But this year Russ’s idea is to find Nick Roberts. With an address stolen from the accounting files of the publishing house that’s home to The Celtic Fan, the four friends set out to find the elusive Roberts and make names for themselves. And as three begin to get distracted – Russ by women, Michael by liquor, and Jim by porn or who knows what – only one stays the course: Steve Riley, a journalist from Knoxville, is determined to find Roberts and land the story of the century. His dedication to his mission is complicated by a deluge, a flash flood, and an obviously incorrect address. But as time has its way, Steve begins to wonder if his trip will be successful in other ways. And if his suspicions are correct, what will he do when they’re confirmed? Even more unsettling is the real question: If he finds Nick Roberts, will he tell? Set in the foothills of the beautiful Smokey Mountains, The Celtic Fan is two stories – the story of a journalist following his biggest story ever, and of a wounded soldier and the girl with whom he falls in love post-World War II. Throughout the pages, Bill and Claire’s tragic tale winds its way through Steve’s story, a sweet and sensual account he never thought he’d tell. Take the time to savor and enjoy his telling, and bring your tissues – you’ll need them.

Man, Deanndra Hall does NOT disappoint you! I read the Me, You & Us series, and I am in love with this author! I will definitely be looking out for more of her work.
The Celtic Fan is such a touching book. It was definitely different, but I loved it. I loved how everything “fell” into place. It was really about being older, finding love, learning how to keep love from miles apart. It is about soul searching, building who you are again, and how to keep your feet on solid ground.
I also loved how you was reading about the characters, but you was also reading about “The Celtic Fan” at the end of each chapter. Having this at the end of each chapter didn’t over do the book either, it actually molded the book, and it linked everything together.
Steve, a journalist, and one of the four friends on an adventure to find Nick Roberts, stumbles upon Diana. Diana lives by herself, off a beaten path, but Steve finds she has a lot of secrets.
I really loved reading about the two stories in one, so to speak. I can not wait to read another book by Deanndra Hall!

Review: Snowed In @TitleAuthor

Publisher: Kensington
Author: Sarah Title
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Southern Comfort

★ ☆★ ☆★ – 4 Stars

There’s nothing like a hot kiss on a cold day…

Librarian Maureen O’Connell might have predicted she’d find herself crying into the ice cream case at the supermarket after a bad breakup—but she definitely never imagined that a guy hot enough to melt the Rocky Road would flirt with her right there in the freezer aisle. Only Gavin Fraser isn’t a fantasy, he’s a mouth-watering new flavor…

When a freak snowstorm strands Maureen at Gavin’s after just one date, it’s a perfect excuse for something a lot steamier than hot chocolate in front of the fire. It’s definitely lust. Can it also be love?

I loved the humor in this book. It was definitely a light, quick to the point book. The heroine getting bumped in the beginning was just some of the humor in the novella.

“Are you dumping me? In bed? While we’re still naked?” “Come on, you would have wanted a last hurrah,” he said, slapping her affectionately on her ass. “Anyway, don’t worry about it, I’ll give you plenty of time to find a new place. Now, hush, the weather’s on.”

I really enjoyed this book, especially getting to know Maureen. I never cried in the frozen section staring at Ice Cream, but I am sure some of us have. I also loved Pippa, she was full of spunk. She reminded me a lot of the elders in our lifetime. There is something about them that they give us these little quirky moments that we will eventually thank them later for.

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Published: January 27th, 2015


Welcome to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where the air is heavy with desire—and sometimes dreams come true.

Ever since her mother kicked her out, twenty-year-old Robyn Gonzalez has been working the poles at the Devil’s Den, saving up to finish college and travel the world. With only her wits and her gorgeous body to rely on, Robyn has learned to be independent—fiercely independent. She’s never been tempted to let a man distract her from her dreams . . . until she meets the dead-sexy Garrick Dempsey.

The club’s new head of security, Garrick had walked away from a career as a mechanical engineer to return to his roots in Corpus Christi. He hadn’t planned on getting to know someone like Robyn, with her sinfully sweet combination of vulnerability and strength, at the Devil’s Den. She acts tough, but only because she’s been hurt. Soon Garrick knows he will do anything to win Robyn’s trust. And if that means surrendering to the red-hot chemistry between them, all the better.

A loud banging noise from somewhere near the manager’s office startles me. I stand up. I can’t see very well. Only three lampposts are working near the end of the pier. None of the ones closest to me are on. I grab my backpack, stuff the towel inside, zip it up, and walk hurriedly toward the office. I grab my cell phone from my pocket and keep it at the ready. I see movement as I get closer to the office. The door slams shut. I freeze, listening.
“Where’s the goddamned money, Franco?”
I don’t have it,” I hear the manager answer.
Nothing about this situation feels right. I have strong fight-or-flight instincts. And that voice inside is telling me to run. Now.
“Ten thousand dollars just went poof?” the angry stranger asks.
“No,” Franco answers. “I spent it on my family.”
I squeeze my eyes shut. Honesty isn’t always the best policy if your ass is on the line. I know this situation—I’ve overheard similar conversations between men in the club. No wonder Franco stays late. He’s dealing drugs after hours. I know it.
There’s a pause in the conversation. I slip forward a few feet. Maybe I should walk on by. Casually. Yeah, that won’t work.
“Put your hand on the desk,” the stranger commands.
“No . . .” Franco refuses feebly. “I won’t let you hurt me.”
That elicits an evil laugh. I shudder. I’m getting nervous for Franco. He’s always been nice to me. Don’t get involved, I tell myself. I have enough to deal with.
“Put your hand on the fucking desk.”
The exchange is more heated now, more desperate.
This is the best time to make my exit. I’m a great sprinter; I went all-state in high school. I sling my backpack across my left shoulder and grip my phone tightly in my right hand. Go! I run past the office, clearing the end of the pier, and hit sand before I hear someone in hot pursuit. Sand turns to gravelly asphalt and I slip on my sandals. Damn it. I’ll lose precious seconds if I look over my shoulder. How many races did I blow as a freshman looking back? I won’t make that mistake again. I kick off my sandals and run. Harder and faster.
The sound of boots pounding asphalt is all the inspiration I need to keep moving. He’s gaining on me. I run past my car and hit sand again. Over the first sand dune I see lights in the near distance. I’m heaving for breath and sweating like a pig. Fishermen frequent the beach this time of night. I keep running, hoping someone will be there.
“Get back here, bitch . . .”
Please. Please. Please. I almost collide with the back bumper of a Chevy Silverado. I drop to my knees and look up. There’s a dark figure coming around the side of the vehicle. I can’t catch my breath. I can’t see straight. My blood is pumping, my mind racing.
“What’s going on?” I hear a man ask.
“It’s none of your business.” The same asshole that ordered Franco to put his hand on the desk is pissed off at me now. I still don’t know what he looks like, and really don’t want to. I grimace.

Book Review: Keystrokes @canuckylisa

KeystrokesCoverTitle: Keystrokes
Publisher: Entertwine Publishing
Author: Lisa Marie
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

★ ☆★ ☆★ – 5 Stars!

What if you won the opportunity of a lifetime?
The chance to go from nothing to something
practically overnight?

Farrow Connoley is practically a celebrity – online.
She runs a successful blog, with thousands of followers.
In reality, she leads a boring, unremarkable life.

Entering a contest, one lonely January night,
brings about changes she dreamed of,things she never thought possible.
Like meeting Kasen Wells, a reluctant movie star,
struggling with the fame he never wanted.

Craving an easy going, normal life, will he walk away from it all?
Should Farrow embrace her fifteen minutes,
or cling to the mediocrity of her everyday existence?
Or will fate intervene, making their choices for them?

I absoutely fell in love with Kasen, and Farrow. Who knew a “normal” book blogging girl could be swept off her feet by a celebrity?!
Kasen, Kasen, Kasen! Just oh my WOWs! We will get more to that in just a sex.. second.
Farrow, just an ordinary girl in the book blogging world, who won a chance to be the exclusive reporter and or blogger of a book made into a movie. How awesome would that be!? (insert day-dreaming here) She has access for the behind-the-scene footage, well the ones she could go to, and she got to meet a lot of celebrities. She got to the see the world of Hollywood, and their endless days or nights.
I loved Farrow’s ambitions, her character, and the way she is independent. I loved the corkiness, the flirting, and the friendship that formed between Kasen and Farrow. A lot of moments I was beyond smiling.
Kasen, such a sweet soul. I loved it when they went to see his mom, you could feel the love through the pages. At times during the book I wanted to hurt him, like maybe punch him in the arm, but hey.. I can just say -ugh, men!- but overall he is a romantic, and who doesn’t love that?
If you are looking for a sweet, easy, humor, and some romance then I would say try this book out! I have found another author that I love❤ Maybe you will love the book just as much as I did…

Book Spotlight: Quakes @rlugolini


Title: Quakes
Author: R.L. Ugolini
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 3, 2015


Only the desert would know…

Dr. Malcolm Reid goes out on his seismology expeditions alone, and he likes it that way. The fewer warm bodies he’s responsible for bringing home alive, the better.

When the mentorship of a geology grad student is thrust upon him just as he’s leaving for Mexico’s Baja peninsula, he resigns himself to eight weeks of keeping her safe—from ATV-riding cattle rustlers, from a weather-worn mountain lion roaming the hills, and most of all from her accident-prone self.

Jenna Polaski has needed the canyon-sized chip on her shoulder to get ahead in the old boys’ education hierarchy. Now, needing samples to finish her thesis, she has no choice but to serve as the professor’s pack mule. And wonder if his limp is connected to rumors surrounding a long-ago incident that killed one of her predecessors.

Malcolm keeps a sharp eye out as they penetrate deep into the wilderness. But the one danger he forgets to watch for is the one that captures them both—an undeniable attraction that shatters all the rules.

Mal dropped both packs and walked close, leaning a hip against the vertical rock face.
Holding her in his gaze, he tugged at his leather gloves, finally pulling them free and tucking them in his waistband.
“Do you recognize the stratigraphy?”
Her face fell. “Don’t you ever quit? I don’t want another geology lesson, Mal.”
He knew what she wanted, but pretended not to have heard the frustration in her voice.
Mal traced a thin band of rust with his finger. “Notice the layering—”
“For God’s sake. Look around,” she said and waved her arms wide. “This place is amazing. Why does everything have to be about science?”
“That’s what we’re here for—”
“Why can’t we just relax and enjoy the rest of the day?”
“Just pal around? Be friends? Is that what you want, Jenna?” He took a half step closer, crowding her. “Or maybe you’d like me to whisper some more in your ear?”
He watched a slow crimson spread across her cheeks, and he regretted his words. So he hadn’t imagined her reaction back in the scrub. Exhaling, he focused his thoughts on his one comfort. Science.
“These are Cambrian units. This formation occurs in small pockets up and down Baja, but nothing quite like here.” He chanced a glance in her direction.
Her brown eyes had never seemed so large. Or so angry.
His chest tightened. “Do you recall the geologic timescale?”
With a shake of her head, she sighed. “The Cambrian is the oldest period of the Paleozoic era, and is generally agreed to have covered the time span between 570 and 500million years before present.”
Her rote answer grated. “Jenna.” Caution sharpened his voice.
In the quiet, he could hear her breathe. Shallow, rapid. He watched her chest rise and fall. The generous curve...
. He swallowed hard. Think science.
But he couldn’t resist tweaking his lesson plan—just for her. “Imagine the swell of warm tides,” he said, “tumbling into shoals.”
A playful smile twitching her lips, she turned her gaze on him. “The swell of warm tides?”
He nodded. “Interwoven in the sandstone are some distinctive units like this one.” His forefinger picked at a thin maroon layer. Warmth flowed from the cliff wall into his palm. “Beautiful. So smooth—alive.”
“Alive?” Jenna reached out to touch the peach-colored sandstone, her skin blending with the rock. “These units are older than the dinosaurs.”
Mal hid a grin. “You’re correct, of course. But before creatures populated the land, the lush, tropical seas frothed with life.” He pointed to a sequence in the stratigraphy. “Relentless currents of nutrient-rich water ebbed and flowed over soft, fertile beds.”
She leaned against the cliff. “The sea floor must have teemed with plants.” Fire lit her eyes and she continued, “To withstand the powerful force of the tides, they must have had to sink their roots deep, driving them hard until they hit impenetrable rock…”
His heart thudded. “Exactly, Jenna. Colonies of flora and fauna lived, reproduced and died, always straining toward the hot Cambrian sun. For the first time in Earth’s history, predators appeared. They knew what they wanted and they went after it.”

Book Spotlight: You and I Alone @mtoppenauthor


Title: You and I Alone
Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Contemporary Romance


Twenty-one year old Anna Blake has lived her life by one simple rule; never get attached. Having learned early on in life that nothing is guaranteed, she knows there is only one person she can truly rely on; herself.

But when she accepts a job as a dancer at one of the most secretive and exclusive clubs in the country, operating under the name Logan, she meets the one man who makes her question everything she thought she knew.

Bentley Reed is exactly the type of man women crave. Rich, powerful, and as sexy as they come; the definition of a playboy. A former soccer star turned business mogul, Bentley is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it…. but he has never met a girl like Logan before.

Their undeniable attraction is clear from their first encounter and neither can deny the sexual chemistry that flows between them. When Logan agrees to one night with Bentley, she has no idea that one night will alter her very existence.

Determined to walk away from a man insistent on not letting her go, Logan struggles to resist the temptation of what her body desires above all else.

What happens when two people who operate by the same rules, find themselves breaking them all for the chance to experience just one more night in each others arms?

As the song winds down, I turn my attention to the few people in front of me, for the first time acknowledging that there is even an audience in the room. My eyes quickly scan the faces and immediately land on a very attractive man leaning against the far wall, arms crossed in front of his chest.
I dart my gaze away from him the moment I realize that his eyes are locked firmly on my face. Something about the intensity of his stare makes it impossible not to look back in his direction again. The moment our eyes meet, a chill runs through my entire body. He’s close enough that I can register the heat in his eyes and the beauty of his face, but far enough away that I doubt he can see the way my cheeks heat crimson under his glare.

He’s tall, maybe six two, with a body that looks like he lives in the gym and a face that I swear belongs on every modeling magazine in the world. The man is perfection. My stomach twists tighter when he runs his hand through his messy short brown hair and lets out a slow exhale, his lips forming around his breath.

Publisher: Celtic Muse Publishing, LLC
Author: Deanndra Hall
Genre: Erotica, Romance
Series: Me, You & Us

★ ☆★ ☆★ 5 Stars!

Boring. Tiresome. Predictable. That’s how Trish’s husband of almost 30 years described her when he told her he was leaving. Trish sets out to drink her blues away when she literally stumbles onto a man who offers her the adventure of a lifetime. Trish has no idea what she’s walking into when she visits Bliss, the local BDSM club, but under Dave’s tutelage, she takes to the new lifestyle readily.

And when she’s paired for two weeks with Clint, the one Dom in the place who can’t seem to stand her, sparks fly. He keeps her so confused that Trish isn’t sure what’s going on. She’s sure of one thing, however: She’s falling for the handsome, tortured soul, and she’s hoping he’s falling for her.

But when a simple mistake puts her in harm’s way at his hands, Trish has to decide: Is it an adventure worth dying for? And when everything falls apart, can she manage to forgive him? More importantly, can he forgive himself and bury the ghosts that have been haunting him for too long?

Adventurous Me is a fun, sexy, sweet, explicit, romantic romp that’ll leave you breathless and hopeful. And it’s definitely not for the under-18 crowd.

Are you looking for a deeper fantasy?
I would suggest you read this book. It gives you insight on BDSM, you will learn through Trish, and it will brighten your eyes and your mind.
Adventurous Me is the first book I have read by author Deanndra Hall. I read this whole book in one day, I could not put it down, and the story intrigued me to wanting to know what will happen next.
Trish meets Clint at the BDSM club, she never knew what to expect when she walked into the club. She just knew she wanted an adventure, and to not be a boring girl that her ex-husband said she was.
Clint has been broken on so many levels, but Trish still hung in, even after the awful treatment she went through. Together they learn more about themselves, then what they thought they needed.
Adventurous Me is about happiness, sex, wild-mind-blowing sex, and heartbreak. You should totally check this book, and add it to your TBR Now!

Reeling from a relationship that didn’t happen, Steffen Cothran stumbles upon a woman who may be the answer to his prayers, but Shelia Brewster has problems he couldn’t have anticipated. They work hard to forge a relationship, only to have it destroyed by someone from Steffen’s past – the one person he’d forgotten about. As Sheila, hurt and angry, walks out of his life, Steffen eventually gives up on love until that fateful night when curiosity takes him somewhere he never thought he’d be to see something he never dreamed he’d see.

I really enjoyed getting to know more about Steffen, a broken man who is a Dom. He works through his emotions through BDSM, and had so many Subs he has lost count.

About the Author
DeanndraHallDeanndra Hall: For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a writer . . .
and it has served me well. I wrote for local publications, wrote marketing and advertising materials, wrote for academic publications, and eventually grew jaded with the writing profession as I often watched others take credit for my hard work. I retreated into the world of 3-D art in the fiber and textile mediums and hid out in a world of colors and textures. But, truth is, there was always a story or two in my head. It wasn’t until Nikki and I met in my imagination that I decided it was time to let those stories out, and I’m glad I did. My readers now get to enjoy the fruits of my imagination and, believe me, it runs wild!
On the personal side, I’ve been happily married to my lover and best friend for over thirty years, and I have two wonderful adult kids who’ve blessed me with two excellent choices of life partners. When I’m not writing, I’m playing with my three crazy little dogs, hiking in a local recreation area, kayaking, working out at the gym, tending my herbs, cooking, or doing some kind of research.

But I’d really rather be writing!
