Man Hands (Man Hands 1) Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby

I desperately needed this!! I loved this book so much, I was laughing almost the whole time and just think it was the cutest!!! I loved everything about Brynn and Tom, especially their insane lust for each other. In fact, I loved it so much I bought the next one and already started reading it! Brynn is so awesome! She’s so quirky and I absolutely ADORE her love of food!!! And Tom, I love how he thinks and the little mumbling he does. SO ADORABLEEEEE. Just no words for how awesome this story was. It was the best distraction of life!

Carrie Ann always sucks me in! I loved every second and every word of this book. It truly helped me get out of a funk. The story of Dimitri and Thea is such a good one! I love that their tale is a complicated one, because those are always the best.

From the very beginning Thea had me hooked, and it was cemented when we got introduced to Dimitri. The instant reaction of these two was fire!! I love that we got to see them in this light and we got to see their love grow. There were just so many layers of history between these two, that it just seemed like fate that they got together.

And that curve ball!!!! Carrie Ann always knows how to throw the perfect curve ball! It helped create such a roller coaster to their story and really brought the families together.

I can’t wait to read more about Carter and Roxie next!!

Against All OddsAgainst All Odds (Full Throttle #1) by Erin Trejo And Elizabeth Knox

I‘ve always been a big fan of MC, a huge fan of Elizabeth, and I knew Erin wrote MC. This book was GOOD!!! It was really everything I had hoped it would be with the mix of dirty, from sexy dirty to bloody dirty. I’m not usually a fan of insta-love, but I LOVE the the instant connection between Phoenix and Kenna. It was everything you would want between two characters in a dirty story like this.

I LOVED KENNA SO MUCH! I loved how much sass she had and how she did NOT back down! She really had some balls and I loved how Phoenix let her help run the show. As alpha-man as he was, he wasn’t afraid to be a true partner. Speaking of alpha, HOLY CRAP ON A CRACKER!!!! I was melting at his show of power to her, was so damn hot!!! Phoenix was the best in this, and I was loving his relationship with Ascher. The supporting characters were just as amazing, I loved Winnie and Leo. Leo had be cracking up through out the whole book!

There were also quite a few twist and turns that really kept me on my toes. The entire second half of the book had me on the edge of my seat. These two did such a good job writing, everything was seamless and so good! I loved the edge to it and the hotness. Can’t wait for more from these two!

I LOVED THIS BOOK SO HARD! I love this series so much, but this one was even better. This story definitely was different than the others. Yes, it was still a love story, but it was darker and deeper. Just dark enough to really captivate me! I loved Merc throughout this whole series and I couldn’t wait to finally see more of him.

I really adored everything about Merc and Cosima. I loved how they met and how they began their relationship, it was so admirable! She just seemed so perfect for him and they really seemed at home with each other. She brought a nice calm to his life. Then of course we got to see more if his family, which I love. I think it’s great how close they all are, and Cos seemed to fit in great. There were so many little moments between Merc and Cos and with the family that I couldn’t help but say aw.

Now for the darker parts, this really captivated me. I couldn’t wait to keep reading when I had to stop, I even had dreams wondering what might happen next. The dark parts were so crazy and such a big part of this story. This really took this story on a different level from the others. The others weren’t all sunshine and rainbows, but this story took on a much darker tone. It was a nice step out of the box from their story. I’m really curious to see what Jo might come with next and if we will see more from the family

If it were possible I’d give this book 6 stars. Not only was this book amazing, I was obsessive about it. I haven’t been this obsessed over a book in a while, in fact, My boyfriend has to basically force me to go to bed the fist night. The next day I started reading at the end of the work day and only put it down to drive! I’d have to say this just might be my favorite book of Marie’s so far!

From the very beginning I was hooked! Candi/Zoe really started this book out with a bang!!! Her and Lynch were HOTTTTT. Fair warning, there’s LOTS of super steamy sex in this book (it’s awesome LOL). We really got to see a dynamic shift at the beginning of this story. There was a plot twist within a plot twist with Molly and Candi coming to the MC. That was on the first of many. Seeing how Candi affected Lynch was definitely entertaining too, especially with the members reactions to her. Lynch, Molly and JT have so many different layers to who they are. We really got to see some of those layers, and some she still has locked up for the future. Their family dynamic is something super different in this book, it’s definitely another hook. Then we get to see how the MC reacts to them and respects them. 

I know I’ve talked multiple times before about not liking insta-love, BUT I loved the connection between Lynch and Candi. The instant connection they have and their sexual attraction was so strong! The severity of each others actions and jealousy was so damn entertaining too. Basically I loved everything about this damn book. I loved how it was a little on the dark side, had so much hot sex and had amazing characters. I cannot wait for more

Laid Over by SE Hall

So I keep saying I don’t like insta-love, but this is the third book in a row that I’ve read that had insta-love. I’M OBSESSED!!!! I loved every minute of this short story! I devoured it so quickly and I really want to read it again. I loved Lily and how strong and determined she was! And then Trevor really blew me away, I love how he picked up on what kind of woman Lily really was from the beginning. I would LOVE to see more of them!!
