When Ashes Fall Cover.png
Blurb: It’s been said that you can’t love two men at the same time. You can’t split your heart, soul, and body in half. But I’m here to tell you, you can.

Dylan Cole is like ice, sharp and unpredictable, the thunder inside a tumultuous storm. Smith Reid is warmth, soft and gentle, perfect like a sunny day.

Both are mine. But I can have only one. There are two sides to this tale. I’m here to tell you mine.  If you think this story is about a cheater, you couldn’t be more wrong.

Review: Maverick by Lora Leigh

tumblr_pivlrjEMkT1qenwu4_540.jpg
The Cover: What I love about the Elite Ops series is that there are different versions of the covers. I personally love the versions I own, but I think it’s cool to have options. I really like Maverick‘s cover because I think it matches Micah’s essence perfectly.

Basics: Maverick was released on March 3rd 2009, is book #2 in the Elite Ops series, published by St. Martins and is 368 pages long. Genre wise Maverick belongs to: contemporary romance, new adult, military romance and erotica.

Description: Micah Sloane knows almost everything there is to know about Risa Clay, including the vicious betrayal she endured years ago and the distrust she’s harbored ever since. The only way for the Elite Ops agent to uncover an assassin―and banish the ghosts of his own dark past―is to use Risa as bait. But nothing has prepared him for her disarming blend of innocence and sensuality, or for his overwhelming need to protect her…

Risa has spent six years rebuilding her life. And now, to save it, she must pose as Micah’s lover and draw a killer into the open. It’s a risky plan―especially with a man as powerfully seductive as Micah. But, as their charade becomes reality, Risa realizes the greatest danger may lie in losing her heart forever…
Maverick.jpg
Overall thoughts: So I’ve been re-reading the Elite Ops series by Lora Leigh and I can’t believe I FORGOT how amazing these books are! Oh my gosh! Each book focuses on a different remember of the team: Wild Card focused on an ex navy seal and Maverick focuses on Micah, the ex Mossad agent. The secret team composed of different ex military personnel from around the world are tasked by the government (this was never really confirmed, I’m just assuming!) to hunt down the worst of the worst and also seem to specialize in rescues.

Each book in the Elite Ops series can be read as a standalone but if you don’t want to feel lost, I would suggest reading them in order OR at least reading Wild Card first THEN Maverick. That being said, I love Maverick! It’s hard to chose a favorite in this series because they are all so good, but I really have a soft spot in my heart for Micah and Risa. Their love story is one about healing and overcoming the past and I think that although their experiences might directly not relate to you, as a reader you will be able to relate to them in some shape or form. 

The chemistry between Micah and Risa is static, oh my goodness. They completely enthrall and enamor their way into your heart as you read through their story in Maverick. There is some action and some tense moments in this book, but I can guarantee the only thing you’ll care about and focus on is Micah and Risa’s relationship. I love Maverick so much and again if you’re into military style romances with touches of erotica, the Elite Ops series and Maverick is for you!

Favorite Quotes:

Best friends from college. Plus-ones since med school. A chance for something new. Love With Me, the latest in the beloved With Me In Seattle Series by New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby is Live!
Love With Me AMAZON.jpg
Blurb: Jace Crawford heals hearts for a living. More than that, medicine is his life. To become the leading cardiothoracic surgeon on the west coast, he’s made sacrifices. No social life. He barely has time to sleep. Love? Forget about it. But when everything goes horribly wrong on his table, and he unexpectedly loses a patient, Jace is suspended from work.

When a man has nothing but his job, what does he do when that’s gone? Joy Thompson collects unwanted strays. A dog with one eye, a three-legged cat, a bird that swears like a sailor? All part and parcel of her veterinary business. It helps pass the time.

Until Jace calls out of the blue to ask her out on a real date. Spending extra time with him is dangerous. Her feelings for her best friend have always been stronger than simple companionship. If she gets attached, what happens when he goes back to work and leaves her behind?

But as the weeks progress, falling for each other is inevitable. This time, Jace’s heart is the one that will need fixing before both of them end up broken.

About the Author:
 Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.  Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

Review: Only You by Marie Landry

41578092.jpgThe Cover: I think the cover of Only You is very pretty and I like the differences in font, however I wish we could see more of the couple’s face.

Basics: Only You was released on November 13th 2018 and is available for FREE through the Kindle Unlimited program. Genre wise Only You belongs to contemporary romance. 

Description: Ivy’s new boss is sexy, Scottish…and comes with an expiration date.

When Ivy reluctantly takes a new part-time job, it’s a means to an end. Doing this favor for her pain-in-the-neck roommate means Ivy can have her apartment to herself again much sooner. The last thing she expects is Hugh—the hot Scot who just happens to be her new boss—asking her out on a date. And then another. And another.

Something about Hugh makes Ivy want to let her guard down and open up, which would be perfect if he wasn’t possibly returning to Scotland in a matter of weeks. But maybe that doesn’t matter. Maybe Ivy can learn to live in the moment and have a little fun, even if it means setting herself up for heartache later.

ONLY YOU is a standalone contemporary romance about taking chances, unexpected friendships, and holding on to the things—and people—that matter most.
Untitled.png
Overall thoughts: Only You was a very heart-warming, contemporary romance read. A nice book to curl up with as the temperatures go down and the holidays start to creep upon us for sure. Ivy is currently in an okay job but is stable and somewhat happy about her life, except for the distraction of her roommate who keeps getting fired from each and every job. She tries to help Celia the best she can, but it’s hard when you’re basically mothering a younger woman down on luck.

The holiday season is fast approaching in Only You and Celia finds a job working at Christmas village. Snow, Elves, Santa, twinkle lights and hot cocoa…the works. However Celia only somehow gets Ivy hired working at thee Christmas village too…as an elf. Annoyed at first but wanting to help support her friend, Ivy starts working at the Christmas village and finds out that she actually enjoy it. Meanwhile she’s trying to ignore the sudden interest in her fellow co-worker who plays Santa; however, he isn’t just a co-worker or Santa, he’s the boss of the Christmas village. Hugh and Ivy start to hang out and get to know each other, with each passing day getting closer. However just like Christmas, nothing can last forever and Ivy isn’t sure if she can keep her sexy, Scottish boss.

I really enjoyed Only You, but I did struggle a bit with it for a few reasons. One, while I enjoy contemporary romance and slice of life romance books, I honestly felt like the first half of the book was SO slow. So slow. While the story took awhile to get into it was good, but just so slow at first and I really, really struggled with that. My other issue and I honestly cannot believe I am writing this right now, was that I feel like there wasn’t enough intimate moments between Ivy and Hugh. I’m reading a romance book, I want romance and a lot of it!

Besides that Only You was a great curl up on a quiet day kind of read, perfect for the time of year and Landry shows great promise as a romance author.

About the Author: Marie Landry’s life revolves around books; when she’s not writing them, she’s reading them, taking pictures of them for bookstagram, or blogging about them. An avid reader from a young age, she loves getting lost in characters’ worlds, whether they’re of her own making or someone else’s. She particularly loves coming-of-age stories with as much of an emphasis on self-discovery as on romance…but don’t leave out the romance!

When not doing bookish things, Marie can be found daydreaming (in general, but often about traveling through Europe), binge-watching shows on Netflix, and taking photographs. She lives in a cozy apartment in Ontario, Canada with the best roommate ever, and only sometimes imagines it’s actually a flat in London.

Review: Long Road Home by Stacey Lynn

LongRoadHome-FINAL
The Cover: I think this cover is very sweet, intimate and loving. I really love the color scheme of it and couple book covers really make me happy because they are rare so I love this cover!

Basics: Long Road Home was released on November 5th and is 275 pages long. Genre wise Long Road Home belongs to complementary romance, second chance romance and standalone.

Description: I left home ten years ago, promising myself I’d never return to the place where I had never been accepted. I was despised and ridiculed for circumstances completely beyond my control.

But when my grandmother passes away, I’m forced to return to Kansas. I will have to face everyone who hated me. But they’re not who I’m most afraid of.

My biggest fear? Facing him. Jordan Marx. The boy I once loved more than life itself. The boy who defended me from them. The boy I’d disappeared on, leaving him nothing more than a horrible nasty lie and hastily scribbled note.

When Jordan finds out the secret I have carried for so long, I’m in for the battle of my life. Or so I thought. I might have wandered for years on a path riddled with thorns but with Jordan by my side, taking the long road home means more than reuniting with the only man I’ve ever loved. It might just mean finding myself, and the family I never thought I could ever have along the way.
45076662_1595712793907717_8533671388005793792_o.jpg
Overall thoughts: Long Road Home was a low key second chance romance soap opera. Oh my gosh, I was literally cringing through at least 60% of the book because in the description Destiny describes facing Jordan and her secret. Oh Man does she have a secret. Girlfriend made a huge decision years ago and now she’s paying for it. 

Long Road Home was just one of those books where you just want to make some popcorn and munch through it because it literally reminded me of a Spanish soap opera. This book started fast and it really didn’t stop; like that is the main reason it reminded me of a Spanish soap opera because one thing happened and then something would immediately happen a few pages later. 

No spoilers but Long Road Home is the ultimate second chance romance love story. I also think it’s important to point out that when people are young, they tend to make mistakes I personally feel like one of those instances was showcased very well in this book. Destiny and Jordan sizzle as a couple and they definitely tug at your heartstrings. Long Road Home was super dramatic for me but one of the best second chance romances I’ve read in a long time.

About the Author: Stacey Lynn currently lives in Minnesota with her husband and four children.

WWW Wednesday

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived here on Taking on a World of Words. Just answer the three questions below and leave a link to your post in the comments for others to look at. No blog? No problem! Just leave a comment with your responses. Please, take some time to visit the other participants and see what others are reading. So, let’s get to it!
img_1384-0.jpg
The Three Ws are: What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?

Untitled.png
I am currently reading The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks duet by Max Monroe! This is my first Max Monroe book and I’m super excited to be reading it! 

Blurb: I’m Luciana Wright. Everyone calls me Lucky, but when it comes to love, I’m anything but. I have a long history of dating the wrong men.
You know the ones I’m talking about.

The beautiful, charming guys who are quite literally too good to be true. The ones who are impulsive in love and prefer short flings over long-term relationships. I’m talking about the jerks. The guys who taste so good, but are so very bad.

After going through the most ridiculous breakup in the history of breakups, I thought I’d learned my lesson. I officially put myself into jerk rehab and committed to changing my ways. But, let’s be real here, love is never that easy. Especially when an arrogant, charming, he-devil of a sexy alpha man gets involved.

Aussie accent. Tanned skin. Muscular, surfer bod. Gorgeous brown eyes. And the kind of sexy smile that brings women to their knees. Oh, did I mention that he’s also my best friend’s brother? Yeah. This story, my story, it’s a real doozy you guys. The day I stopped falling for jerks, I met Oliver Arsen—the biggest jerk of all.

Pre-order The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks duet here ←

Untitled2.png
What did you recently finish reading? The Necromancer’s Bride by Brianna Hale! Oh my goodness! This book was a novella but it completely blew my socks off! It is the perfect dark romance/Halloween read! 

Blurb: When I was a child he brought me back from the brink of death. Since that day I have borne his mark, a black star in the center of my left palm. The villagers say it brands me as evil. I think it means something far worse. It marks me as his.

The disease that nearly killed me has returned to the village and children are dying. I’m the only one who dares to climb the mountain and learn his secrets. In exchange I’m to clean his house and help with his strange experiments, but Meremon wants more. He wants me. And it isn’t long before I discover that his demands are as twisted as his experiments.

Warning: This story is a dark fantasy romance with scenes of non-consent and dubious consent. Additionally, Meremon is a necromancer and enjoys unusual things. Some sex scenes might be strange or creepy for some readers.

As always with Brianna Hale books, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after. THE NECROMANCER’S BRIDE is a novella of 16,000 words.

My Post (64).jpg
What do you think you’ll read next? I have been fortune enough to receive ARC’s of Royally Yours by Emma Chase and Long Road Home by Stacey Lynn! Once I’m finished with The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks duet I’ll be diving into these bad boys! I’m super excited! 

Royally Yours Blurb: Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.

It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. What she isn’t… is married. It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.

Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty. Even Queens. Especially them.

** Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.

And a sacred promise keeps him there. To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure. Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. This is theirs.

Pre-order ⟵

Why I’m excited: I really love the Royally series and I’m really excited for Royally Yours because it’s set in a different time with new characters. I really enjoy boys that are in the same universe as other books but has a different plot with new characters we haven’t read about. It’s familiar but contemporary. 

The Necromancer’s Bride by Brianna Hale, out October 20th 2018.DocW0u9W0AA2qFm.jpgBlurb: When I was a child he brought me back from the brink of death.

Why I’m excited: I’ve been following Brianna Hale for awhile now and I am kicking myself I haven’t read any books of hers yet! But I’m super excited for The Necromancer’s Bride because I feel like it’s perfect for October and the Halloween season; but also because I enjoy reading darker romances and the blurb really got me interested! 

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black out January 8th 2019
26032887.jpg
Blurb: You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

Pre-order ⟵

Why I’m excited: I just finished re-reading The Cruel Prince by Holly Black (if you’re interested check out my review here⟵) for review and I liked it a lot more than the first time I read it. Although it really didn’t end on a cliff hanger I do have some questions and I’m really curious to see how everything that happened in The Cruel Prince play out in The Wicked King. We have a long time to wait for it though, January is three months away! 

divider 3

Those are my picks for Waiting On Wednesday! Do you have some books you’re waiting for? I am so impatient so it’s hard for me to wait on things, ESPECIALLY books. One of the reasons I love the romance genre book world so much is because the waiting isn’t bad, usually only a few months which isn’t bad at all. Compared to the Young Adult which usually takes a year or more. Anyway please let me know what your Waiting On Wednesday picks are!

About the Author: 
Rachel Blaufeld is a bestselling author of Romantic Suspense, New Adult, Coming-of-Age Romance, and Sports Romance. A recent poll of her readers described her as insightful, generous, articulate, and spunky. Originally a social worker, Rachel creates broken yet redeeming characters. She’s been known to turn up the angst like cranking up the heat in the dead of winter.

A devout coffee drinker and doughnut eater, Rachel spends way too many hours in local coffee shops, downing the aforementioned goodies while she plots her ideas. Her tales may all come with a side of angst and naughtiness, but end as lusciously as her treats.

As a side note, Blaufeld, also a long-time blogger and an advocate of woman-run anything, is fearless about sharing her opinion. She captured the ears of stay-at-home and working moms on her blog, BacknGrooveMom, chronicling her adventures in parenting tweens and running a business, often at the same time. To her, work/life/family balance is an urban legend, but she does her best.

Rachel has also blogged for The Huffington Post and Modern Mom. Most recently, her insights can be found in USA TODAY, where she shares conversations at “In Bed with a Romance Author” and reading recommendations over at “Happy Ever After.”

Rachel lives around the corner from her childhood home in Pennsylvania with her family and two beagles. Her obsessions include running, coffee, basketball, icing-filled doughnuts, antiheroes, and mighty fine epilogues.

When she isn’t writing, she can be found courtside, tweeting about hoops as her son plays, or walking around the house wearing earplugs while her other son, the drummer, bangs away.

Excerpt Reveal: Kiss My Ash by Leddy Harper

Kiss My Ash, an all new Sexy Taboo standalone Romance by Leddy Harper is releasing August 9th!

KissMyAsh_ecover (1)
Synopsis: Ash Jenkins was the typical boy next door. Wait, who am I kidding? There was nothing typical about that boy.

He was tall, ripped, and had the voice of a man twice his age. Intelligent, sexy as sin, and barely legal.

Sent to live with his dad after getting in some trouble with the law, he was definitely someone I needed to stay away from.

But he had his sights set on me, and he didn’t try to hide it.
Did it still make me a cougar if I was the prey?

Kiss My Ash Teaser Text Books (2)

Excerpt: “Why am I the only one getting naked?” Kristy huffed. “If you’re so confident that we won’t get caught, why is your suit still on?”

“Because I’m not the one who said I’ve always wanted to go skinny dipping.”

“Well, being the only one doing it isn’t much fun.”

“Wow, babe…what happened to you?”

After a moment, she asked, “What do you mean?”

“You got old.”

“I did what?”

“You heard me—got old.”

“Don’t be an Ash-hole. In case you don’t remember…I am old.”

Shaking my head, I bit back a grin she couldn’t see, though I felt confident she could hear the hilarity drifting past my lips. “Did you just call me an Ash-hole? On purpose? Or are your dentures falling out, giving you a minor slur.”

“Keep it up, and you’ll leave me no choice but to open a can of whoop-Ash on you.”

It took everything in me to hold back the humor that filled my entire body before it bellowed out into the night—which would most certainly wake a few people. “You’re on a roll. What else you got?”

“The list is rather extensive; it could take all night. Maybe if you weren’t such a jack-Ash, I’d tell you. But alas, you are, so it looks like you can kiss my Ash.”

“See?” I lowered my head and allowed my hushed laughter to swarm us, creating a cocoon meant for two. “You’re not old. You might think you are, but if that were the case, you wouldn’t have been able to come up with creative ways to spin my name into a curse word.”

“Well, they say you are the company you keep.”

“So it’s my fault you’ve been sneaking around, making out with your neighbor behind bushes at night like a teenager without a care in the world?”

“Something like that…” She couldn’t even say that with a straight face, which was evident by the amusement in her tone. “Regardless, you’re not allowed to say I’m old. I don’t give a rat’s Ash how good you are in bed, do it again and we’re finished. You hear me?”

“Yeah, Kris…” Eliminating the humor between us, I lowered my lips to her ear. “Loud and clear. And if you don’t take this bathing suit off now, I’ll make you scream so loud the entire neighborhood will hear you as well.”

About the Author: Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped. 

She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters. She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females. 

The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.
