I once loved a boy who grew into a man.

A man that promised me stability, loyalty, and a lifetime of security. I had it all—at least I thought so. Until mere minutes with someone else made me want for more. More than I already had. Forbidden wants that I shouldn’t wish for.

Cade Ryder was everything my Ivy League pedigree should have stayed away from. Every sane part of my existence screamed for me to keep my distance.

Distance from where he worked. Distance from him, his body, and his soul-searing eyes.

But the more I stayed away, the more our lives merged. Now my life—my normal—is unraveled. My heart, my hope, my new future all in the hands of a tall, tatted bartender.

I planned my forever with the perfect man. But sometimes the heart wants more than stability, more than security, more than what others want for you. One thing’s for sure—destiny can’t be planned.

*****5 STARS*****

Not only was Unraveled sexy as sin, it was also as sweet as pie….a PERFECT COMBINATION!!!! Angelica is a good girl who has her life planned out for her. She has the perfect, successful boyfriend whom her parents adore. When she begins seeing the cracks in her relationship to Roland, she puts on a smile and thinks things will get better. She believes they will recapture the magic they once had. However, an encounter with a sexy, tattooed bartender upends her world, and she has to re-think everything she thought her life would be.

Angie thought it would be one encounter with the man, Cade, who made her feel things she hadn’t felt in a long time. She was mistaken. He is a tenant in one of the buildings her father owns. Cade is even more dangerous in the daylight, and she finds herself growing closer to him every time she sees him. Don’t fear….there is no cheating!

When I began reading, I thought Cade was going to be some bad boy whom Angie was going to tame, but I was very wrong. Underneath those tattoos and sinful body, beats the heart of a good man. Yes, he’s flirty, and that mouth of his is dirty, but it’s his soul that makes him a man to fall for. I loved their sexy banter, and I loved how through that, Angie, or “Angel” as he calls her, gains some confidence in herself. Finally, someone is taking care of her and asking her what her thoughts are and not dictating what she should say or be doing. He helps heal her, and she helps heal him and helps him realize love is possible. However, there were times she hurt Cade with her inability to speak up and demand the respect she deserved. At those times, I was like Cade’s friend, Kristy. I was shooting daggers at her. Without spoiling things, Angie does become a very different woman by the end of the book.

I also liked the fact that each of them was close to their families. Cade was the protector and caregiver for his family. Tene, Angie’s sister, was her biggest supporter. Angie’s father was a saint to put up with her mother, and he really loved his girls. I was far more reluctant to warm up to their mother. However, Angie isn’t the only to take stock of their life and make some changes.

Mia Kayla blew me away! I have almost all of her books on downloaded, but this is the first one I have read…why oh why did I wait so long! Her writing is fantastic…well-written with extremely well-developed characters. She is one of those talented writers who can write a love scene with plenty of steam but also capture the deep emotions and love between the characters. Every emotion between Cade and “his Angel” came through. It was just amazing! She is now on my list of “go to” writers, but luckily, I have some of her other books to tide me over until her next book.

Finally More by Rachel De Lune Cover Reveal with Pre-Order Links

Book: Finally More

Author: Rachel De Lune

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: 8th January 2018



Love can be found in the strangest of places.

Natasha Devlin, the Mistress that rules the playrooms at Solace, and the men or women she dominates, doesn’t need love or relationships outside the walls of her fortress. She’d witnessed her fellow Doms fall in love. That wasn’t her scene.

Aiden Morgan has two priorities in his life. Dedicating his time to visiting at the Alzheimer’s home that cares for his Grandad, and to his one other love, painting. But things change when he meets a stunningly beautiful older woman.

For the first time in years, a simple friendship excites Natasha. It’s new and fresh and free from the responsibilities that have bound her life. Of course, the sizzling chemistry between her and Aiden helps. Introducing Aiden to the BDSM world she lives in would be a risk, but one she can’t pass up.

Rachel De Lune writes emotionally driven erotic romance. She began scribbling her stories in the pages of a notebook several years ago. Today she’s still scribbling stories of dominance and submission and creating Happily Ever Afters.

Rachel lives in the South West of England and daydreams about shoes, lingerie and chocolate, in-between being a mum and a wife. She would love to give up her day job to devote more time to her scribbles.  For every woman who’s ever desired more.

Title: Fall Back Skyward

A Fall Back Series Novel

Author: Autumn Grey
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: May 9, 2016


Eleven years ago, I saved her. I loved her. But they took me away from her and locked me up. For two years, all I could think about was her. She consumed me. Took up every room in my head and gave me something to focus on, knowing I would see her soon.

Nine years ago, I watched her as she walked down the aisle and into the arms of a man who wasn’t me. My brother. I left my home and never looked back.

Now, I’m staring at seven letters, each envelope stamped with one word in bold, red ink: URGENT.

I have no choice but to go back home. Seeing her will be the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. But in order to reconcile with my past, I have to face my present. Even if the thought of seeing her, knowing that she is out of my reach, kills me.

I have no idea what awaits me, but I can only hope that the demons of my past will finally be buried and put to rest.

**Due to possible triggering descriptions of self-harm, and some sexual situations this book is not recommended for anyone under the age of 17 years old**
