Diego Lobos is every mother’s dream. He’s handsome, smart, athletic,

and well-mannered. Diego attended an Ivy League college and managed to keep a

swoon at the mere mention of his name. Guys want Diego to be on their team. 

Everyone wants to be friends with Diego Lobos. He’s the guy everyone loves… And
rightly so. But is he right for me? Can Diego fill the voids within me? Those
vacant spaces that have been dark and empty for so long that I’d forgotten they
existed until he stepped into my life… Diego is charismatic, charming, and
genuine. He’s a sexy motherfucker without being the arrogant asshole. What more
can a girl ask for? In my dark world I need more. I have a need most guys can’t
fill. I demand certain expectations that have guys cupping their balls and
running in the other direction.

Can Diego be a submissive? Sometimes I think so and other times he just confuses
the shit out of me. This particular detail matters though. I can’t ever go back
to that time. I can’t ever be under another man’s thumb. I refuse to bend. I
refuse to part with the little bit that’s left of me. 

Yes, I’m broken. But damn the world to hell if even this fractured part of me
is more magnificent than half the bitches out there.

Love me or hate me. I don’t give a flying fuck. But everybody loves Diego… So
why would he work so hard to be with someone like me?

Book Review+Release Goodies: Twisted (#5 Blood and Roses) by Callie Hart

Title: Twisted (#5 Blood and Roses)

Author: Callie Hart

Genre: Erotica

Release Date: July 8, 2014



How many times can a person fall down and still get back up? How many times can things go wrong before you just give up?

I’ve lost everything. My home, my job, my purpose in life—everything has been turned upside down. But while life hasn’t exactly turned out the way I would have liked it to, I wouldn’t change a thing. If things were different, I wouldn’t have Lacey. I wouldn’t have Michael.

But most importantly, I wouldn’t have him.

I’ve realized what I feel. He knew it before I did. Only one question remains:

Is he capable of feeling the same way?


Secrets are a prison, and I have been behind bars for years. Sloane Romera has been turning keys in all of my locks, throwing light on corners of my mind that I thought would forever be shrouded in darkness. Or at least I had hoped would be.

I have done so many wrongs in this life, and yet this woman has forgiven me. She’s done something I never thought possible—she has learned to understand me, and she hasn’t run. She’s amazed me. She’s saved me. She’s fallen in love with me.

If it’s within my power, I’m about to do the same for her.

Book Review+Tour Goodies: Within These Walls by J.L. Berg...GIVEAWAY!!

Title: Within These Walls

Author: J.L. Berg

Genre: Romance

Release Date: August 18, 2014


Within these walls, he became my solace, my sanctuary and my strength.

I am not strong. I am just a survivor of circumstance.
Isn’t that what we all do? Survive?

Each of us has our own set of circumstances to muddle through. Mine are just more…complicated.

Born with a severe heart defect, I’ve seen the inside of a hospital room more than my own bedroom.

I was drowning, a prisoner to the illness that owned me, until he appeared. He thinks he’s blocked out the world with his tattoos and hard exterior, but I see the real Jude, the one he so desperately wants to forget.

But is he the answer to my prayers or will he break my already damaged heart forever?

My name is Lailah Buchanan, and this is our story of hope, redemption and sacrificing it all for the one you love.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A gifted copy was provided by the author for an honest review.

This book is neither over the top nor underdeveloped. It's special. You know those books that make you think ALL about how life is too short and too fragile to let things be without making the move to make them the life you want? Yeah that's this book in a nutshell!!

Lailah (btw the spelling is beautiful!) was born with a heart defect. Her whole life she's been protected within these walls of Memorial Hospital and within these walls of her mothers heart, and now she's realizing that at age 22, she's ready to explore what's outside the hospital walls. And she's hoping that her pudding fairy, aka secret admirer, aka Jude will help her find her way. If only Jude wasn't holding onto a dreadful past.

Overall, I found myself LOVING Lailah and Jude. She found her One and he found his second chance. I thought their love story was powerful and spoke well beyond the words on the pages. I'm giving this book 4.5 STARS out of 5 STARS. I would have liked to seen the book move and a bit of a faster pace. It felt a lot longer than it should have, but that's truly my only complaint about this incredible book!
