ARC Review: Tryst Six Venom by Penelope Douglas



I don’t typically read a lot of F/F stories, but knowing it was Penelope Douglas and seeing this gorgeous cover I knew I had to give it a shot! I absolutely loved Clay and Liv’s story and I think this book will be one that a lot of readers enjoy. 


Liv and Clay on the surface have little in common except the school they attend. I really enjoyed getting to know each of them as individuals and as they circled one another. There was so much tension and attraction between them. I also really loved that this wasn’t your typical bully NA read. This one was unique and original in a way that only Penelope Douglas can deliver. Clay and Liv had their own insecurities and vulnerabilities, and seeing them grow and change over the course of this book kept me turning pages and unable to put this one down. 


I also fell in love with Liv’s brothers while reading! I loved how fierce and protective they were. The loyalty their family had to one another is something I couldn’t get enough of and I honestly hope that Penelope will give us their stories someday as well. 


If you are on the fence about this one, I highly recommend giving it a shot. It was good, fresh and original. While I know F/F isn’t everyone’s jam (typically not mine either!), the story here is worth the read and I think readers will love it like I did.

ARC Review: Mr. Garcia by TL Swan


 

I have become a huge fan of TL Swan’s this year! After binge reading her entire backlist, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Seb’s story. Mr. Garcia definitely didn’t disappoint and I honestly think Seb is right up there with Cameron & Nathan for my favorite heroes of hers now! (although don’t ask me to pick, because they are all honestly amazing!)


Seb and April’s story grabbed my attention right away and I couldn’t put their book down. I loved Seb and April’s connection and attraction, and the chemistry between them was beyond smoking! These two were so perfect for one another, but their journey was anything but easy. These two each had their own issues and insecurities, and I really felt for both of them. Seeing their vulnerabilities and struggles made them relatable, and it was easy to see how they each reacted the way they did at times even while frustrating each other. 


I honestly cannot recommend TL Swan’s books enough, and Mr. Garcia is at the top of that list! While this book is connected to Mr. Masters and Mr. Spencer, (both of which were fantastic!) this is easily read as a standalone. I highly recommend checking out Tee’s books if you haven’t read anything by her yet, trust me you won’t be disappointed! If you are already a fan, Mr. Garcia is everything you know and love from her while on a whole new level! I can’t wait for more from her and will be rereading this one and all her other’s while I wait for her next release, The Casanova!

ARC Review: Not Pretending Anymore by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

 



I’ve been in a book funk lately and Not Pretending Anymore by two of my favorite authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland was exactly the book I needed to pull me out! This book was excellent from start to finish and I couldn’t put it down! These two never disappoint, but honestly Declan and Molly’s story could very well be my favorite from them ever!


Declan and Molly meet when Molly is looking for a roommate. She reluctantly agrees to let him take the room she is trying to rent out, though originally she wanted a woman roommate. These two quickly become friends and agree to help each other with their crushes by pretending to be in a relationship. Of course things soon change when they both start questioning where the line is between pretend and real as their feelings for one another begin to grow.


Declan was fantastic! I loved him so much. His sense of humor and his caring personality mixed with his vulnerability and sexiness made him impossible to resist. He was so charming and I couldn’t help but fall right along with Molly. Molly was sweet and funny and her personality fit so perfectly with Declan’s. These two had a strong bond right from the beginning that just continued to grow with each page. They also had crazy chemistry that jumped right off the page and you could tell just how hot they would be if they gave in to things for real.


Overall, this one was everything I was hoping for and more and I can’t recommend it enough. Vi and Penelope knocked this one out of the park and I can’t wait to reread it for more Declan and Molly as I am not ready to leave them behind. Can’t wait for more from Vi and Penelope as always!

ARC Review: Fighter's Best Friend by A. Rivers

 



This was my first book by A. Rivers, but it won’t be my last! I really enjoyed it and was drawn in from the very first page. While this is the second book in the series, you aren’t missing anything  by not having read the first book. I will say that even though I was able to read and enjoy this one as a standalone, I am anxious to read the first book in the series though. 


Gabe and Sydney were great. I could see how close they were and the special bond they shared, yet also the struggles that each of them faced. They were vulnerable and genuine, the kind of characters that make you believe their story is real and keep you from being able to put their book down.


Overall, great story and characters. Tons of chemistry and connection, everything I look for in a good romance. I definitely recommend Fighter’s Best Friend and can’t wait for more from A. Rivers!

ARC Review: Wild Wind by Kristen Ashley

 



Out of all the books and series I have ever read, the Chaos MC series by Kristen Ashley has to be in my top 5! I adore these protective alpha men and their strong and unique females! I have been waiting to get Jagger’s story since I got more of him with Dutch’s book. It did not disappoint, and he is definitely up there on my favorite brothers list! Wild Wind is a standalone novella within the Chaos world, but for full enjoyment and some amazing books I recommend reading the entire series!

J and A had both been through so much and I really felt for both of them. Though the circumstances of their meeting were terrible (at a cemetery while he was visiting his dad’s grave and she was attending her mom’s funeral), their connection was clear and felt genuine. Their interactions over the years had me sucked into their story right away, and I loved seeing where they would pop up and run into one another. The chemistry between them was super hot and I couldn’t get enough of them. These two were made for one another, that was obvious right from the start. Jagger had so much to him, and my heart broke for all that he had been holding in and hadn’t dealt with. A pulled was exactly what he needed to tackle his issues and I loved her for standing by his side through it all.


This one was great and I honestly could have had a full length novel of these two, though this story was completely satisfying! I just loved them both so much that I would have loved even more. J and A were unique and perfect in their own ways, and I loved that they were so apologetically themselves. I can’t wait to go back and read Chaos from start to finish and experience the club and brothers all over again, especially Jagger! Highly recommend this one and all the Chaos books. You can never go wrong with a Kristen Ashley book!
