The Fourth Time Charm: A Friends to Lovers Romance (Fulton U) by Maya Hughes

ABOUT THE BOOK


“Are you sleeping with my daughter?” 

Not the question I wanted to hear from my coach. The man holding my pro future in the palm of his hand. 

The answer: No, sir.

The real answer: I’d sure as hell like to be.

Marisa’s been my best friend since third grade. And now she needs my help–and a place to stay. Senior year was supposed to be the year to keep some distance until the season finished and my draft prospects were safe. 

But resisting her is becoming impossible. Movie Thursdays under the blankets. Study sessions on my bed. Wild party nights where I kept any guy interested at bay with a single glare. 

Her dad can bench my ass for the entire season, so she’s off limits–for now. 

She’s the only woman I’ve ever loved. And one heated night, I can’t stop fighting every cell in my body and can’t stop myself from sampling her sexy smile, her sweet smell, and her sultry curves. 

We’re walking a tightrope with my future on the line. Let’s just make sure Coach doesn’t find out…

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

A Top 10 Read of 2021

The Fourth Charm by Maya Hughes is a beautifully, written best friends to lovers romance full of emotion!!!

Marisa and LJ have been friends since they were children. Each of them have offered the other a safe place when things were tough growing up. As they grew older, that bond and friendship developed into feelings that went beyond friendship. However, those few moments when they both might have felt that spark never amounted to anything more. Their time together is rapidly ending…LJ hopefully going into professional football, and Marisa going to Europe for a once in a lifetime chance internship. I could feel their chance at romance slipping through their fingers, and I was at times screaming at my Kindle for them to “wake up” and see what was right in front of them!!!!

Hughes did such a great job of giving her readers their backstory. I loved the flashbacks of their childhood together. Granted, both had things happen in their childhood that completely determined their future…Marisa had a rougher go of it. Yet, they were ALWAYS there for one another. I could see that they could have such a great future together if they could let go of the past, especially Marisa. The synopsis just scratches the surface of their relationship. There are two prominent backstories that add angst to the story…LJ’s determination of going pro and what it would mean to his family. Marisa has a whole lot of baggage to unpack. 

I have to say LJ is one of my very favorite characters. Without spoiling things, he isn’t what all the rumors swirling around campus say he is!!! He is the whole package…looks, sex appeal, and oh my goodness, his heart is made of pure gold. I just LOVED him. 

Marisa is a very complex, complicated character. I would get so MAD at her for running hot and cold with LJ, but as I got to know her, I could understand! She deserves someone who loves her, and she deserves answers from her father. 

The Fourth Charm is the first top 10 read of 2021 for me. It isn’t just your normal New Adult Romance. The story itself is complex as are the characters. It’s definitely worth reading!!!!!

Maya Hughes, that’s me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.

I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.

New Review: Scorched (The Frenemy Series Book 4) by Kate Benson

Scorched

Scorched

By Kate Benson

About the Book

When I agreed to use my vacation to watch my best friend and baby sister get married, I had no idea I’d be strapped to her maid of honor, Alex – my boss and nemesis – for the entire week.
When we turned to liquor to make the best of a bad situation, we woke to find our entire world turned upside down.
It would be easy enough to forget the whole thing – we barely remember that night as it is – but when it happens again, something between us shifts from hatred into something else.
That’s where it gets complicated.
It’s been said you sacrifice a lot for the ones you love.
If that’s the truth, why does it feel like I’m the one getting scorched?

New Review: Corrupt My Mind (A Brother’s Best Friend Romance (North Haven University Book 1) by Kelsey Clayton

🖤🖤 𝐇𝐎𝐓 𝐍𝐄𝐖 𝐑𝐄𝐋𝐄𝐀𝐒𝐄 🖤🖤

Your next bad boy book boyfriend is here!!!! Corrupt My Mind by Kelsey Clayton is AVAILABLE and FREE with Kindle Unlimited!!!!!!

About the Book:

My name is Zayn Bronsyn,

and I think I screwed up.

I wasn’t supposed to fall,

especially not for her.

She’s in a league of her own,

and I’m just her brother’s scumbag friend.

The last time I saw her,

she was thirteen with braces.

Now, she’s back from boarding school,

with an hourglass body that’ll bring me to my knees.

If Easton finds out I hooked up with his sister,

he might actually kill me.

She’s too innocent, too perfect for a guy like me,

but I can’t resist dragging her into my messed up world.

Amelia Donovan might be the one to revive my blackened heart.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Corrupt My Mind is a spin-off of the North Haven University series, and I LOVED that series. So, you can imagine my delight when I found out she was doing this series. She did not disappoint!!!!!

Zayn is best friends with Easton, and these two share a much deeper friendship than most people do. They have seen each other at their best and at their worst. So, Zayn would never do anything to betray that trust, that is until the temptation of Easton’s sister, Amelia. She comes home, and she is NOT the little girl he remembers.  He does everything possible to resist her, but it gets harder every time he sees her. When danger surrounds her, he will do everything in his power to keep her safe all while facing his feelings for her. 

The book is told in both  Zayn and Amelia’s voices which gives readers a deeper insight into their minds. Zayn thinks he doesn’t deserve the good things in life, especially Amelia’s love. But, my gosh, he has the biggest heart EVER. He is loyal, and that loyalty is illustrated through his relationship with Easton. No one could ask for a better friend than Zayn. He deserves everything good in life, and he definitely deserves Amelia. 

Amelia is everything a heroine should be…strong, independent, and like, Zayn, very loyal to those she loves. Both Zayn and Easton underestimate this girl’s strength. She can also be stubborn, but who could blame her with the way her feelings are jerked around by Zayn. However, he was protecting himself from the hurt of possibly losing her. When the two are together, they make a formidable team!

The chemistry was off the charts. Clayton did a great job of building it slowly, so readers are able to savor it! The angst that is present in the story isn’t just added for effect. It really drives the direction the story is going in. 

This book has everything that makes Kelsey Clayton so phenomenal…sexual chemistry, romance, and a hint of suspense. All those things make me fly through the pages, not coming up for air until I’m finished with the last page. As always, she gives us just a hint about the characters she will introduce us to in the next book!!!! Of course, I can’t wait until I get my hands on it!!!!!

New Review: Well This Sucks by CoraLee June & Carrie Gray

Hot New Review!

Well This Sucks by CoraLee June & Carrie Gray

Release Date: September 20th

About the Book:

I treat eating pancakes on patios like it’s a personality trait.

Brunch is my jam. I like the beach, shopping, carbs, and reading naughty books on the train during my commute. I wear pink. Lots of it. If Tinder were an Olympic sport, I’d take home the gold. I can rock stilettos like they’re a pair of Nike joggers. I’m basically basic.

I’m in the prime of my life. I’ve got my dream job as the head of marketing, and I’ve been steadily dating myself for the better half of the last decade. I’m thirty, flirty, and thriving.

Or at least I was, until some jerk had the audacity to turn me into a vampire.

I don’t do blood and doom and gloom. I sure as hell don’t like sleeping in a coffin, avoiding garlic bread, and these ridiculous vamp politics. And don’t get me started on Diego. He’s vampire royalty and a pain in my butt. A very sexy pain in the butt. When he’s not driving me crazy with all his rules, he’s turning my panties into Niagara falls.

I absolutely refuse to live the rest of my immortal life in some wannabe nineties grunge music video.

This SUCKS!

Christie’s Review

All-Time Favorite Read

A Top Read of 2020

Well This Sucks is one of the wittiest vampire romances I have ever read, complete with the sassiest heroine I have come across in a really long time!

The unstoppable duo of CoraLee June and Carrie Gray have taken the vampire trope and turned it on its head. It isn’t the same story all of us have read before. It’s smart, sexy and full of fantastic characters.

Here’s a little background. Drew is probably the unluckiest person when it comes to dating. As the story opens, it seems her streak is continuing in dating losers. However, our girl is talented in running off losers. Her night looks like it is looking up with a hook-up in the alley with her sexy waiter. Imagine her surprise, when she ends up being a midnight snack for said waiter’s grandma. Luck is on her side, depending on how you look at it, that she doesn’t die and instead becomes one of the undead. 

Drew catches the eye of the king of vampires, Diego. He is drawn to her for some reason as she is to him. Who wouldn’t be? The man exudes sex appeal. Our sassy heroine doesn’t care how sexy he is. She has always played by her rules, and she is determined to continue doing so. She doesn’t care about vampire rules or politics. 

The banter and chemistry between these two is both funny and electric. My favorite part of the book is the nuances tucked between the pages…like the wonderful power and strength of women which is perfectly embodied in Drew. When you add the spunky Betty, the grandma vampire, she shows us that age really is just a number.

This talented duo of writers continues to amaze me. I have read so many different genres from them this year, and each one is brilliant. They continue to prove to their readers that they can’t be boxed into just one genre. So, ladies, continue conquering the writing world…y’all rock!!!!

I have always loved to read. In kindergarten, I was the weird kid sitting in the reading nook by myself instead of trying to get more snacks. I’m excited to be putting my own voice on the page and watching a story I helped create come to life. I still love to read, but I also really like snacks.

I grew up in Chicago but recently moved back to the Dallas area where I live with my husband and son.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I spent a year researching chimpanzees and gorillas while I was in Chicago and then I spent another two months on a chimpanzee sanctuary trying to convince headstrong chimps to cooperate. Pro tip – grapes are a pretty hot bargaining tool. They work wonders with my toddler too.

Kensington Bradwell doesn’t get told no often.

Not when he built an empire from the ground up.

Not when he became the most powerful man in North Haven.

And definitely not when he met my mother.

A picture-perfect relationship,

a happy family,

and twenty years of marriage—

all thrown away for a man with no morals.

Tearing him down won’t be easy,

but I won’t stop until his empire is in flames.

For my sister. For my father. For me.

I need to find a way to break him.

Lucky for me, the answer just fell into my lap.

Daddy’s little princess may be innocent in all of this,

but Lennon’s about to get caught in the crossfire of revenge.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

 

Kelsey Clayton has done it yet again!!!! This is another winning read for me!!!!

 

I finally got Lennon’s story. I just love this girl. She is passionate, loyal, sweet, and smart. She will have to call on all of her strengths when she meets Cade. They have one chance encounter that sets up perfectly how their road to happiness will be…angst, anger, passion, and finally love! These two are like oil and water. Not only that, Cade’s mother is her father’s new girlfriend. If her father’s new relationship status isn’t surprise enough, just wait until she discovers that Cade, his sister, and their mother are all moving in with them. Yes. things are changing for Lennon!

 

“His last name may be Knight, but he’s far from dressed in shining armor and he’s definitely not her to save me.” ~Lennon~

 

Lennon learns right from the start that she and Cade will not ever be friends. He’s rude and insulting, making judgments about her just because of her father’s wealth. Because of his attitude, she assumes some things about him that might not necessarily be true. It is going to take a lot of time and energy for them to get past these first assumptions. So, yes, this book is full of back and forth and hot and cold, but oh does Clayton make it sooooo good!!!!

 

Cade is out for revenge, and he doesn’t care how he gets it, but Lennon has put an obstacle in his path, without even really knowing it. Cade knows he shouldn’t want her, but he can’t seem to help himself. Something keeps pulling him towards her like a magnet, and there isn’t anything he can do to stop it. Oh yes, he does try to! At every turn, he runs hot and cold with her. He either seems to be kissing her or insulting her, taking away any chance he may have with her. 

 

“She’s nothing but a stuck-up, spoiled trust fund brat with a serious attitude problem. She just also happens to be the one to set my soul on fire.” ~Cade~

 

Lennon is always mad at him, and who could blame her. Like Cade, she knows better than to get involved with him, again, like Cade, she can’t seem to stay away. She is drawn to him, and she wants him to only see her. 

 

You stand here, up in your ivory tower, untouchable to everyone–but not me. No. Mark my words. One day, I’ll claim your mind, your body, your innocence. One day you’re going to be mine.” ~Cade~

 

The chemistry and romance aren’t the only elements that make Clayton’s books so amazing. It’s just the way she tells a story! With every book, I have seen the same characters. With each book, she shows them in a different perspective. For example, Lennon has always been one of my favorite secondary characters. I knew she was sweet and could be sassy. However, when it was time to tell her own story, I got to see her in an entirely different light. I LOVE THAT! That is what Clayton does with each and every character. I discover I like a someone who plays a secondary role, and I can’t wait for them to get their own book. With that said, Kelsey, I’m crossing my fingers that Colby wants to tell us his story too!!!!

Fallen (Frenemy #3) 

By Kate Benson

About the Book:

College graduation wasn’t quite what I thought it would be.
Along with my art degree, I received a positive pregnancy test.

The father just happens to be my brother’s best friend, any my nemesis-turned-boyfriend.
It’s complicated.

Now, we’re living together, in a new city, with new jobs and my hormones are raging like a crazed banshee. What else could go wrong?

I hear Mexico is beautiful this time of year.

If this had happened a year ago, we’d both be running for the hills. It’s too late for that now, though.
We’ve already fallen.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

This last book in the whirlwind that is Evie and Dash was well worth the wait!!! These two never cease to amaze me, make me laugh, and in this book bring some tears to my eyes!

As the synopsis says, Evie’s college graduation was nothing like she expected. Having a positive pregnancy test was not at all what she saw coming! Her relationship with Dash is complicated and complex. They have their own brand of crazy that has worked for them so far, but bringing a child into the picture will definitely test their love and patience with one another.

This pregnancy from the beginning until the very end is vintage Evie and Dash, lots of craziness and laughter. However, there are some other serious and emotional moments. They both are still who they are at their core, but they both also grow so much throughout this book. They are forced to face their own insecurities and become grown ups, and what amazing grown ups they become, although that journey is full of twists and turns.

Can I just say that I loved how Benson brought some of my favorite characters from her other books into this one…ladies, think Dr. Tommy, Drake, and Chase!!!! Ahhh…that was a genius move!!!!!!

I know I have written the same thing in my previous reviews of Kate Benson’s books, but she is one of those rare writers that really listens and loves her characters. They are not only a part of her books, but I think they are also a very important part of her soul as well. That magic always translates into everything she writes. That is the very reason she will ALWAYS be one of my all-time favorite writers!!!!

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

I was already a huge fan of Jenn and Cletus, and this book made me love them even more!!!!

This book is best understood after reading Book 3 in the series, Beard Science. I loved catching up with all the characters in Green Valley. Jenn and Cletus should be enjoying their time together, but it seems like one thing or another is keeping them apart, and not just her mother this time. It is a busy time of year, and now the couple find themselves embroiled in a mystery. It seems like weird things are happening in town, and it starts with the death of 61 chickens. Someone is sabotaging people in town, and Jenn and Cletus are determined to find the guilty party.

One of my favorite parts of the book was seeing Jenn really come into her own. She is learning to become her own person, and it was great seeing her relationship with her mother change….even Cletus’s relationship with her mother changes. The mysteries seem to have a silver lining in that sense. The two still share their electric chemistry. It was wonderful catching up with them after their HEA. 

Reid has again put herself in her own genre. It’s part mystery and part romance with lots of spice added in. I am so excited for this series, and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!!!!

A Top Read of 2020

All-Time Favorite Read

Oh my gosh!!!! This is the best book of the series so far!!!! 

So, Ronan seems like he has it all. That is what I thought as I read the earlier books in the series. He is loved by all and loves to be surrounded by others! Boy, Rina Kent sure had me fooled. Never did I even dream what was going on behind that sexy and happy facade he presented to others. With his arranged marriage to Teal, all that pretense starts to fall away. As the title suggests, he can be a “vicious prince.” Teal seems to bring that out in him when she refuses to go back on the marriage contract! What begins as a sensuous and emotional game of cat and mouse becomes so much more!! I wasn’t sure who would be the winner…Ronan or Teal. 

Kent really threw me for a loop with this one. My heart broke…I cried. I was angry. Not only were my emotions raw, but she somehow weaved in a mystery I wasn’t expecting! Ahhh…it was so good! I have loved all her characters, and it’s because of their flaws that they are so dear to me. Ronan and Teal are my favorite so far. They are so complicated and complex. 

From the beginning, Teal makes it well-known that she has ulterior motives for agreeing to marry Ronan. They are from two completely different worlds. He was born into wealth and privilege. She was lucky to be rescued and brought into that world yet she never can forget her traumatic origins. She never cared about fitting in.

“When girls did everything to fit in, she just followed what she liked. She never once laughed or smiled because it was expected.”

“If Marquis de Sade and Snow White had an offspring, it’d be her.” 

To say Teal has suffered would be the understatement of the decade. She has learned to just go through the motions of life without having any emotions. This is where the magic that is Ronan comes in. He is the lightness to her darkness. He makes her feel things which is both good and bad for her. He could be the prince she never saw coming. 

While Ronan thinks he and Teal have nothing in common, he comes to realize they actually have more in common than he ever imagined. They just deal with their traumas in completely different ways. Teal has tried to be invisible and Ronan has surrounded himself with others. 

“It’s a commitment I made to myself when I decided to never be alone. Not for one second. Not even for a blink.”

This is one of those books I devour, but I have to stop and let it seep into my soul before I can ever sit down and write a review. The chemistry between them was electric, but it was all their own…just like their road to love was! It was the right one for Teal and Ronan. Rina Kent continues to amaze me. She can take something so dark and make it into something so beautiful. I think Teal not only accurately describes who Ronan is, but she accurately describes Rina’s Kent’s writing:

“You’re the light despite the darkness. You’re the hope despite the black dots. You’re strong despite the weakness.” 

Kent gives her readers light in the darkness, she gives hope despite the circumstances, and she gives her characters’ strengths in spite of weakness. This is why she has become one of my favorite writers in such a short span of time!!!!

He’s prince charming. Just not hers.

I have a secret.

I stole a heart, or rather a marriage contract.

It wasn’t mine to own, to look at or to even consider.

But it was there for the taking so I took it.

Huge mistake.

Ronan Astor is a nobility in this world.

Arrogant player.

Heartless bastard.

Vicious prince.

Now, he’s out to destroy me.

What he doesn’t know is that I’m out to destroy him too.

My name is Teal Van Doren, and I’m where princes go to die.

New Review: Hard Pass (Trophy Boyfriends #1) by Sara Ney

Release Date: June 16
“Hard Pass.”

That’s what the last girl I slept with said when she got her first sober glimpse of me. She laughed, walked out of my penthouse—and I never saw her again. It doesn’t matter that I’m a rich, professional athlete; what mattered was my face. 

 

 



Beauty might only be skin deep for some—but I know better.

 

 

 

 

“Pay Up.”

 

That’s what the last girl I spoke to said over the phone when I made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. Desperate to sell a set of rare baseball cards, she’s clever and entertaining. I’m instantly smitten, but nowhere ready to reveal myself. Thank god she has no idea who I am—or what I look like.

 

 
I’m a professional athlete–how hard can playing the love game be?



Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Oh my gosh!!!! This book right here is why I ADORE Sara Ney!!!! 

It had all the elements I have come to love about her….great characters, romance to make you swoon, and Ney’s trademark sense of humor.

I LOVED Noah and Miranda. Noah is a professional baseball player. He is young and already a huge success. Unlike his teammates, he is in it strictly for the game…not the money, women, or the attention. In fact, he hates the attention. He also doesn’t have the best self-esteem because of his past with females. Some weren’t very kind to him. It broke my heart sometimes because he didn’t see how really special he was. Fortunately, Miranda does show him how special he is. She is like a breath of fresh air. Like Noah, she is determined to succeed. I loved that she made him smile and forget about his self-confidence issues. This girl had the best sense of humor EVER!!!!!

Ney knows how to write a romance that gives you butterflies and warms your heart. The way that these two first meet was sweet and entertaining. From their first text messages, I could feel the chemistry between them. As they get to know one another, the chemistry just builds. It was the perfect combination of steam and sweetness. 

What makes Ney’s books so good is that her sense of humor comes through in her characters. The banter between Noah and Miranda was hysterical, and Noah’s friend, Wallace, just made the book. The friendship between him and Noah was the icing on the cake!!! I really, really hope he gets a chance to share his story with us. 

If you are looking for a quick read that you will finish in no time, you can’t get any better than this one!!!!
