Life As We Know It by J.D. Hollyfield ~ Review & Quote-tastic (@jdhollyfield)

Life As We Know It is the forth book in the Love Not Included series, but it was a fantastic standalone read. Penelope and Sam had amazing chemistry, and this book was a serious page turner. I'm looking forward to reading more of Hollyfield's work.

Life has not been easy for Penelope Summers. Specifically, the last month, when her high-profile boyfriend dumped her, her indecent exposure record surfaced, and her favorite thing in the world, tequila, failed her.

Good thing for Penelope, she has her best friend to pick her up, and take her on the vacation of a lifetime. A seven-day cruise that will change the direction of her downward spiral. But will that spiral shift in the direction Penelope needs? Or will it throw her into a bigger whirlwind of trouble?

With Reckless Abandon as her motto, tequila as her wingman, and a hot one-night stand as her much needed reward, will the tables finally turn for Penelope, or will life as she knows it continue to fail her?

Sometimes you just have to ride the wave of crazy to find out.

What an unexpected ride this turned out to be! I honestly hadn't read J.D. Hollyfield before, but I came across this one on my Kindle App and had to give it a whirl! It was an entertaining, I tell ya, because Penelope was such an amusing character to read about! She was a bit of a disaster and could never manage to be on time, however, she was a kind hearted person who deserved better than her boyfriend Henry.

After getting dumped, I loved the way she took revenge... not just the coffee order, but the trip away with her friend Patti, where she finds amazing chemistry with Sam on the final night of her cruise. He was hot as hell, lured Penelope out of her comfort-zone and treated her the way a woman needs to be treated. What Penelope didn't expect was to cross paths again, which began as a roller coaster ride for the both of them.

This book wasn't all about the lust and attraction that these two shared, there was a bit of intensity and danger to the read as Penelope's past came back to haunt her. Although Henry was the one to dump Penelope, it seemed like he couldn't let her go completely. I did love the way that Sam fought for her, despite having secrets of his own.

I really enjoyed my first ever read by J.D. Hollyfield, and I know I will be picking up more of her work. She created an casual, carefree world that was easy to be drawn into. I liked that Penelope had a good friend in Patti, and even though she went through some tough times Penelope was strong enough to hold her head high. The chemistry between Sam and Penelope oozed between the pages and I just could not get enough of them. I'm keen to get more from this world, I tell you!

Don't these words just make you swoon!

“You ran away from me once and it wrecked me. I knew the moment I set eyes on you that night you were someone that I needed. I crave you, Penelope Summers. Let me worship you. Let me show you I can be someone you can trust.”

Hunter by Eden Summers ~ Review & Swoon Thursday (@EdenSummers1)

Eden Summers has nailed it with Hunter, I tell you! I was hooked right from the start and demolished this book quickly. It had the perfect mix of hotness, suspense and characters that I adored!

A seductively thrilling game of cat and mouse destined to leave you breathless.

I've been running for ten years - fleeing my past and clawing my way toward an inescapable act of vengeance.

Until he walks into my life, sure and strong and full of secrets.

He dilutes my thirst for retribution with his touch. He obliterates my need for solitude with his kiss. But it's his hidden agenda that makes the hair on the back of my neck prickle.

He wants something. Something that doesn't revolve around sweaty skin and tangled silk sheets like he'd have me believe.

I have to stop falling for him, otherwise the last ten years will all be for nothing. I need to keep running, keep fighting for vengeance, even though I know he will track me down.

But trying to escape him is just another problem. Because now I crave the hunt.

As soon as I dove into Hunter I was hooked! It was entertainment plus from cover to cover! It began with one girls quest to seek revenge, and along the way we found out what happened to her to put her on the path that she was on. What she didn't expect was Hunter turning up in her life and how distracted she would get from being around him.

What really kept me hooked was the suspense! Our main character – Steph/Princess/Emma – she showed us and told us that she meant business and would do everything she could to get the information she wanted. She lived a quiet life and didn't have a social life, but would occasionally visit a bar that put her in the path of Hunter.

Hunter fell hard for his Princess; she got under his skin and even a night of passion did nothing to ease the itch. He wanted her and found it hard to let her go. Hunter had secrets of his own, and he lead quite the secretive life as well, I just knew these two belonged together.

This was a different read to what I expected from Eden Summers, and for me, she nailed it perfectly! It had the right mix of suspense, romance and mystery, that kept me glued to the pages and eager for more. She introduced a few characters that fleshed out the story more, and I would love to see more of them!

This one is certainly heating up!!

I swing around, needing those lips on mine.
He sates me immediately, taking my mouth with a harshness I don’t anticipate. I’m used to soft kisses. Kind and timid. This is profoundly better. A fierce, punishing collision of lips and teeth and tongues.
His hands find my hips and he grinds into me, teasing me with anticipation. “Who are you, Steph?” He holds my gaze, those eyes as questioning as his words.
“I’m a memory you’re going to treasure forever.” I grip his shirt and pull him forward, demanding more of his mouth.

What do you do when your perfect life . . . isn’t?

Freya has the best life – she’s officially in love and her floristry business, Blooming Brilliant, is going from strength to strength.

Two years ago, it was a different story. She was barely employed as the worst waitress in the world, with no hope of a boyfriend, and no bank balance. But then she got BBest, a lifestyle app that knows you better than you know yourself. It changed everything. It streamlined her life, taking her likes and dislikes and skills and foibles, and gave her the best options so she doesn’t make mistakes anymore. Freya has never looked back – and neither has anyone else. Everyone loves BBest, it’s a game changer.

But if she’s so in love, why doesn’t it feel exactly right? And who is that mysterious man in her beloved grandfather’s bookshop with soulful eyes that leave her unstitched? All of a sudden Freya has so many questions – and no one seems to be able to answer them. She begins to wonder what she really agreed to when she let BBest into her life. Then her grandfather is arrested, and Freya is thrust into a world she could never have imagined in her shiny, successful existence.

When you have the perfect life, should you listen to your head or your heart?

I was wondering the shops the other day, and the cover to The Right Girl popped out at me. I picked it up and read the back and thought it sounded pretty interesting so I grabbed it! It turned out to be a good read, but it wasn't what I expected it to be at all.

The Right Girl was set five years into the future, in a world where we rely on our mobile phones a little too much. The BBest app was created so you can ask it simple everyday questions that you would usually decide for yourself. As the story unfolds, we become aware of how deep this app goes, controlling your life and who is really behind it all.

I enjoyed meeting Freya, she was close to her mother and brother, and also had a great relationship with her Grandfather. She was engaged to a guy that was a great match for her, but she could feel that something was missing. She had some good room mates, who had her back when she needed them. However, after spending time in her grandfather's shop, and meeting a guy that made her heart race, she began to question a lot of things in her life.

It was good to see the change in Freya as she realised the control the BBest app had over peoples lives. She met some people that opened her eyes further, and at times I was on edge as she used her job to get information.

This was the first time I've read Ellie O'Neill, and it was quite a pleasant read. I did hope for a little more romance though, as Freya turned her life around. Although it didn't blow me away, I will definitely try her again in the future. 
Here's a snippet to show you the kind of fun writing that was entwined throughout this story. I enjoyed this flirty banter!

‘Whoa,’ he cried as though he was taming a horse.
I turned around, recognising his voice and embarrassed by the vigour and power of my dig.
‘It's my workout for the day,’ I apologised.
‘It looks amazing. Well done,’ he said with enthusiasm.
I shook my head modestly. He handed me a bottle of water and a chocolate bar, which I ripped open and started to eat. I didn't even stop to read the wrapper. I mumbled with my mouth full, ‘Thanks, this is hungry work.’
‘Sorry, I didn't catch that, what with all the chocolate . . .’ He blew air into his cheeks, mocking me.
I swallowed. ‘You're not funny. This is hungry work.’
‘Good thing I've got more chocolate then.’
‘Well, don't be giving it away to everyone, they've done nothing all morning.’ I waved at my teammates, who were hunched over their shovels and forks, working away. ‘Bone lazy.’
His eyes smiled back at me mischievously. ‘Good thing I've appointed you chief chocolate officer then, you can organise who gets what.’
‘I'll have to sample the produce.’
We were flirting, and I was loving it. I was also loving the dimple on his cheek that seemed to appear and disappear, and how his flat cap had fallen slightly off his head and was now sitting at an angle, and how, even though I was five foot nine, I nearly had a pain in my neck from looking up at him, And unless I was crazy, which I could be, I felt like he was really looking at me, the whole me, and he liked me. But then again, I was probably crazy.

Ellie O'NeillEllie O’Neill is the best selling author of Reluctantly Charmed. Her second novel The Enchanted Island was released in Australia and New Zealand late last year and is doing very well, thank you. Her third novel, words she never thought she'd write, The Right Girl, will be released by the lovely people of Simon and Schuster in February 1st '18.

Writing wasn't Ellie's first career, she sold spider catchers in Sydney, flipped burgers in Dublin and worked in advertising in Dublin, London and Melbourne. All the while, she had that niggling feeling, that she had stories to tell. So, at thirty-something, she made the brave leap and moved back in with her parents to get the job done. Swopping the dizzy disco lights of London for their suburban Dublin house, she scribbled away hoping and praying that there was an ending to the story that had been hatching in her head for a number of years. Her first novel Reluctantly Charmed was born.

Then most unexpectedly Ellie fell madly in love. The only catch, he lived in Australia. True to form she couldn’t ignore the magic and followed her heart to Oz for what was supposed to be a long holiday. It turned into a six year hiatus during which time Ellie published two books with Simon and Schuster and had two Australian baby boys with Joe. All projects were labors of love, frustrated tears, sleepless nights and chocolate. As if there wasn’t enough going on, Ellie and Joe decided to move their little family across the world back to Ireland to cash in on free babysitters. A few months ago they settled in a very pretty rural retreat in the south east of Ireland and are delighted to spend time again with family and friends and a little bit surprised at how their three year old can curse perfectly in an Irish accent.

The Swedish Prince by Karina Halle ~ Review & Swoon Thursday (@MetalBlonde)

The Swedish Prince was such an entertaining read that I devoured quickly. Maggie and Viktor were a great couple, and deserved to find happiness together. They had both suffered the loss of a loved one, but inevitably found one another to help recover! You should get this one and find out how good it is for yourself!

I never believed in fairy-tales.

Never held out for Prince Charming.

Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of twenty-three.

Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my doorstep.

At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich.

But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade.

Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill.

He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden.

Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step.

I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.

I didn’t expect to have my whole life turned upside down.

When you’re from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle?

Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?

I was browsing Amazon looking for something a bit lighter and fun when I came across this new release from Karina Halle, so I grabbed it immediately. I mean, who doesn't dream of falling for a guy who happens to be a Prince? We've all done that at some time, right? So of course I devoured this read quickly.

Maggie was a real gem; after losing her parents she stepped up and became the guardian of her siblings. It was a bit of a tough ride as they were all quite young, but they seemed to be coping. Maggie and Viktor's initial meeting was hilarious, and the second/third one was just as amusing. I could see these two had a serious connection, and it wasn't long before they started exploring the chemistry that was brewing between them.

I enjoyed they way this story unfolded, and how mature the characters seemed to be. They were both adults and even though they had misunderstandings, they seemed to work through them most of the time. Life had taken a tragic turn for both of them, so they understood each other when it came to feeling loss and heartache. When they were together, I could tell they were meant to be, and I just hoped they could get past the whole Prince-being-a-King-one-day thing.

Although there was a sad element to this story, it was otherwise quite the fun read that I hoped for. Karina Halle created a cast of characters that I adored and I enjoyed watching them all grow. The story was entertaining and it had a touch of drama that would put doubt in any girl's mind. Maggie and Viktor were perfect together and despite the hurdles I was glad to see the way it turned out for them. I really do hope to visit this world again, I'm sure Magnus, the Crown Prince of Norway deserves his own story!

I loved the way Maggie spoke to Viktor in the first quote, but the second one made me melt... swoon!

“... But you… you Viktor, you are a prince in every way shape and form. You embody the word, you are selfless and kind and proud and smart and noble and you care, more than anything, you care. You’re the prince that every girl had a fantasy about but you’re more than that, because you’re real. You’re so real. And you’re here right now and you’re with me and I can’t… I can’t thank you enough.”

“Do you know what it means when I call you mitt liv, mitt allt? Min äiskling?”
A lump forms in my throat and the air around us thickens.
“What?” I whisper after a beat.
I’ve translated it.
I know.
But I want to hear him say it in my language.
Maybe then I’ll finally believe it.
“It means, you are my life and you are my everything and you are my love,” he says gently. “You have shaken me to my very soul, rattled the bars around my heart, and I am yours, Maggie, I am yours.”

At thirty-five, Abigail Simmons has mastered only one thing—running. When tragedy strikes, she runs. This time her urge to flee brings Abi back to her hometown, where she hopes she can find the peace she’s always searched for. That hope is dashed when Abi’s ex, Sam Forrester, bumps his way back into her life.

Sam has flourished in ways Abi hasn’t. From the outside, he has it all—a successful medical practice, a beautiful daughter, and a charming wife.

Who is dying.

Sara Forrester is dying and her final wish is for Sam to find love again so she can meet the woman who will finish raising her daughter and grow old with her husband. Abi seems like the perfect fit, but what Sara doesn’t know is that Abi has a secret, a secret no one could guess.

And it’s a deal breaker.

What a heartbreaking but beautiful read The Dandelion turned out to be. I loved meeting all the characters, getting to know them and understanding the problems they had. I spent a lot of the book knowing something bad was going to happen, but even then I still wasn't prepared for the mournful events.

Sam was such a great guy: a fantastic husband and father. Even with Abby back in town he was still devoted to his family. I could see that Abby stirred old feelings in him, but he tried so hard to keep them locked up. However, his wife was determined to see someone there for him and encouraged their companionship and made sure they all spent time together.

Sara was such a beautiful person, and it saddened me to learn of her issues. It really broke my heart knowing she'd lost so much, overcome hard times only to run out of options in the end. Her quest to find someone for Sam and her daughter was such a brave thing to do, and I could see why she did it.

Abby had returned to her home town for a reason, and throughout the story, details of her past were revealed and her secrets were uncovered. What she had endured was gut wrenching; she'd lost her childhood sweetheart and had moved on as best as she could only to have it all ripped away from her. She had no one in her life that she could turn to and she suffered daily with both physical and emotional pain.

Michelle Leighton knows how to write emotion into her reads that will draw you into her world and leave your heart in tatters. I loved how she wove this story, even if it was a little conflicting between the three of them. I was happy that Abby and Sam got a second chance, but it broke me to lose Sara. I'm certain this story will be with me for a long time to come.

This is just a taste of the connection between these two! It's as strong as ever!

Through marriage and childbirth, through death and infidelity, through unspeakable joy and indescribable agony, I’ve carried a torch for Samuel Forrester. And for him to sit before me, vulnerable and tormented, and ask for me to love him again… Well, it’s like asking the sun to shine or the moon to glow. It’s something I’ve always done, and something I’ll always do. No effort required. It’s carved into my nature.

Chaser by Kylie Scott ~ Review & Swoon Thursday (@KylieScottbooks, @SMPRomance)

Given his well-earned bad boy reputation, Eric is having a tough time scoring.. When single Jean moves to town, she seems heaven sent by the sex gods. Only problem is, she not only wants nothing to do with him, but it turns out that she's pregnant.

Starting over in a small town, Jean is determined to turn her wild lifestyle around and be the kind of mother she always wished she'd had. Since local bar owner and all round hottie, Eric Collins, is now determined to steer clear of her pregnant self, it should be easy. When she goes into labour during a snow storm and her car slides on some ice, it's Eric who comes to the rescue.

There seems to be a bond between them now, but is it enough? And can Eric give up his manwhore ways to be the man Jean needs?

I've been looking forward to reading Eric's book – he was the party boy, a bit of a player and dressed to impress. He appeared to be so put together, but to me he was using all this to cover the hurt, loss and guilt that he had been through. It wasn't until Jean came into his life, that he started to pull himself together and decided it was time to settle down.

I enjoyed seeing the change in Eric; he kicked most of his old habits and stuck to his plan. I liked seeing him fight his feelings for Jean, but the pull for her was always there, even when he tried to run from her. It was amusing to see how he acted when he took her to the hospital, and also the way he bonded with Jean and the baby afterward.

Jean was so good for Eric, she brought out the best in him: goodness, sweetness and the possessiveness. She had hurdles of her own to overcome, and moved to a new town to do so. It was good to see the relationship with her parents mend slowly, but at times I didn't like the way they pushed her.

It was good to see the whole gang again, and the way they gelled together. I liked how Joe was able to lend support when needed and how most of them nudged Eric in the right direction when he was conflicted. However, Nell annoyed me a little, the way she treated Eric. They both lost something precious and it seemed that she put a lot of blame on Eric, despite the incident being an accident. She would constantly put him down and I could see the impact it made on him and how helpless he felt. I was just glad that Jean was there to help him mend again.

I thoroughly enjoyed the third book in the Dive Bar series. Kylie Scott has done a fabulous job at delivering each of these stories. I love that Eric's book was entirely from his perspective and I could feel the emotion through the pages. I loved that the Stage Dive family made an appearance too. I'm looking forward to Kylie's next project!

This was an amusing moment when these two decided to get naughty 😜

“You don’t mind if we practice a bit before the big event?” she asked, breathing heavily. “It’s kind of been a while.”
“Whatever you want. Practice makes perfect.”
And then she kissed me again, hard and hungry. Her fingers dug into my hair, the kiss deepening. Ever so slightly out of control, I grabbed at her gorgeous round ass. Something I’d always wanted to do. A tiny voice in the back of my head wondered if ass-grabbing counted for Jean as “practice,” and whether I was moving things along a bit too fast. But at my touch she pushed her hips hard forward into me, and my doubts disintegrated. She was as into this as I was. Maybe more, if that was even possible.
