I've always followed my dreams with ruthless determination. My life was going well. Success was at my fingertips. Until it wasn't.

And everything starts to make sense again. I try to keep my distance. To remind myself I am her mentor. That we can't be more, but every time I push away, I'm pulled deeper into her.

Review

So I knew going in that this being an Autumn Grey book that I was not going to come out of this unscathed.  My heart was going to be battered, bruised, and shattered by the end.  But I also knew that she would heal it in breathtaking ways.  And my trust in her was warranted.  Breaking Gravity was magnificent.  I felt like I got punched in the solar plexus, at times I couldn’t breathe, couldn’t form coherent sentences and I definitely didn’t want to be disturbed.  I got completely drawn into the story, fully immersed and captivated by Elon and Nate. 

Elon is quiet and a loner by choice but that doesn’t mean she’s a doormat.  She’s also feisty and saucy.  She’s had a hell of a road in life and that’s given her a quiet strength, she’s a survivor.  Nate is also a survivor—of a horrific tragedy that stole from him his heart and his career.  He’s broody, alpha, and absolutely delicious.  And when he enters the classroom, the pull between them is like two magnets.  And they can’t resist.  I really want to know where I can get a Naughty Professor of my own.  Holy dirty talker Batman.  The chemistry between these two is explosive.  I think I had to wipe drool off my chin a few times.  Elon’s a lucky lady.

These characters are brilliantly developed.  They have intricately woven backstories that reveal their strengths, weaknesses and flaws.  They feel realistic and relatable on every level.  They could be your neighbor, your brother, your sister, and so on.  On top of all the broodiness, the temptation and naughtiness, you have this sense of something not quite right going on.  There’s a level of suspense to the story as well.  Add in some family issues and you have a whopper of a book.  This does up the angst level; I totally was a complete mess reading this.  Grey has a habit of doing this to me, reducing me to a snot-nosed monster.  But she mended me in the end.

Definitely one of the best reads of 2017 for me.  I highly recommend that everyone read this series, it is so worth it.  Get that one-click finger working.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

Review

These Hennington boys grab ahold of your heart and just won’t let go.  Corinne Michaels has an innate skill at writing men with alpha tendencies that can do tender moments that just make you melt into a puddle of goo.  Trent Hennington is no different.  I have to admit that he probably is my least favorite of the three; Zach will always be my number one Michaels man.  I have been eagerly awaiting this book.  And I’m sad to say that it didn’t hit me in the feels like the first two did.  I’m not 100% sure why, the content is tough, there are moments that are heartbreaking but I stayed dry eyed through the whole thing.  Please don’t shoot me.

Grace is a Southern sweetheart, soft and caring when it counts and hell on wheels when she needs to be.  And she is D-O-N-E with her on and off again boyfriend of twenty years.  She’s got dreams, relationship goals, she knows what she wants and she isn’t getting it from him.  Trent is a walking wet dream, an alpha and knows he’s done screwed up.  The love these two have for each other is like a living, breathing thing in this book.  You can feel it seeping off the page.  It’s magnificent.  The chemistry between them is there too, it’s passionate and sensual.  I loved how developed the characters were.  Michaels weaved a colorful and interesting backstory for each of them, working strengths and weaknesses into their personality in a way that felt natural and realistic.  And of course, it was great seeing the rest of the Bell Buckle gang again.

The only thing that really keeps me from five staring it is that it kind of bugs me that Grace took Trent’s crap for twenty years.  I wish she had wised up and left him for good earlier.  Maybe he would have smarted up sooner too.  Plus his reasoning for putting her off happened five years ago so what kept him from committing the other fifteen?  As for drama, this is an angst-filled read; I can definitely say that even though I stayed dry.  I bet if I go back and read it again on a day when I’m not so busy I’ll be sobbing like a baby.  It is a breathtaking book and a heartbreaking one but trust me; Michaels will put your shattered heart back together again.  She’s good like that. 

This is definitely going on my re-read shelf with the other Hennington boys.  No matter what kind of romance you like, you should definitely pick this one up.  Michaels’ books are not ones to pass up on.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

ABOUT ALL CLOSED OFF (Releasing May 1, 2017):

Stella Santos is fine.

Maybe something terrible happened to her that she can’t even remember. And maybe it drives her crazy when her friends treat her like she’s on the verge of breaking because of it. Maybe it feels even worse when they do what she asks and pretend that it never happened at all. And maybe she’s been getting harassing emails and messages for months from people who don’t even know her, but hate her all the same.
But none of that matters because she’s just fine.
For Ryan Blake, Stella was always that girl. Vibrant and hilarious and beautiful. He wanted her as his best friend. His more than friends. His everything and anything that she would give him. Which these days is a whole lot of nothing. She gets angry when he’s there. Angry when he’s not there. Angry when he tries to talk and when he doesn’t.
When Stella devises an unconventional art project for one of her classes all about exploring intimacy—between both friends and strangers—Ryan finds himself stepping in as guinea pig after one of her subjects bails. What was supposed to be an objective and artistic look at emotion and secrets and sex suddenly becomes much more personal. When he hits it off with another girl from the project, Stella will have to decide if she’s willing to do more than make art about intimacy. To keep him, she’ll have to open up and let herself be the one thing she swore she’d never be again.
Vulnerable.

Blog Tour: His to Seduce - Stacey Lynn

His to Seduce 
by Stacey Lynn  
Publication Date: March 21st, 2017 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Publisher: Loveswept

image001

Synopsis:

An honorable man who’s lost his way . . . A career woman who hides behind her button-up suits . . . Unexpected romance is the specialty at the Fireside Grill as Stacey Lynn’s captivating series comes full circle.

Becoming an ER doctor had been David McGregor’s mission ever since he could remember. But after tragedy strikes at his hospital in Chicago, David runs away from the guilt—all the way back to Latham Hills, Michigan, where he takes a job tending bar at his childhood friend’s restaurant. That’s how he meets Camden Reed, and the way Camden refuses to give him the time of day should be a turnoff. Instead, he’s drawn to her tough, tightly wound exterior, and soon David realizes that he has a new mission: to see her tightly wound beneath him. 

Camden’s fighting tooth and nail to resist the desire she feels for David. Growing up dirt-poor, raised by a single mother, she worked twice as hard to get where she is today, and she doesn’t have any patience for the kind of guy who’d give up a decent paycheck to sling drinks. But when the sexual tension finally combusts between the sheets, Camden discovers that people aren’t always what they seem. As David pushes her past her limits, Camden begins to loosen up—and to trust that, when she falls, there will be someone waiting to catch her.

Review


Now this is a book that’s just right up my alley.  Stacey Lynn gives us an amazing story full of sweet and tender moments interspersed with smoking hot ones.  This is only my second book of hers I’ve read and I’m quickly becoming a fan.  Right away, David and Camden’s chemistry is in your face.  I swear my glasses were fogging up.  These two have it going on in that sense.  It’s when David wants to take it further that that things start to stall.  Now if you’ve read the previous three books in the series you’ll have a bit of a background on these two.  I’ve only read one so I have a smidge of one.  But it is absolutely not necessary to have read them; this could easily read as a standalone.

Camden is a Type-A, must be always in control, list-making woman.  She rarely let’s her hair down and has definite ideas on who she sees in her future as a partner.  And David is not it.  He’s sexy, carefree and lighthearted.  Plus he’s currently spending time slinging drinks behind his best friend’s bar.  But with both of them images can be deceiving.  These two are beautifully developed characters.  They have well thought-out backstories that fuel the storyline as well as their weaknesses and strengths.  I have to admit, though, that Camden’s standoffishness makes it hard to connect with her and that I felt that of the two I feel like I got to know her the least.  David is what really sold me on the book.  His determination and tenderness with Camden melted my heart.


The drama within is about low to mid angst scale.  I was definitely tearing up at points.  Neither of them have easy stories to swallow.  But Lynn does counter some of the drama and angst with well-placed humor.  I loved David’s family.  I wish we had seen more of the characters from the other books but they were pretty scarce here.  It just makes me want to go back and read their stories even more.

If you like passionate stories that warm the heart, then definitely pick this one up.  David’ll have you melting into goo in no time.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

Excerpt:

“Please,” I whispered, and leaned into his palm now cupping my cheek. His hands were strong. Long, tanned fingers that had made me think of naughty things like this for months.
In the darkness, I saw a flash of his white teeth. “I like it when you beg. When you need me.”
Tonight’s need was selfish. A moment to forget the loneliness. A moment to take what I’d been too chicken to go after for months even though it was right in front of me.
He’d been right before my eyes, flirting relentlessly and trying to break me down. Tonight, I was tired of fighting the pull I’d felt for him despite how wrong I knew he was for me. This was one night. A moment of wildness I didn’t usually indulge in, but who didn’t enjoy getting laid at a friend’s wedding? It was almost a requirement.
His hands dropped to my knees, spreading them wide so he could step in between them.
His fingers teased my thighs, running up and down my bare flesh until I shivered from the softness of his touch.
My eyes were half-lidded when I forced myself to look at him. I saw only his lust for me, and my heart rioted against my rib cage.
Damn . . . he wanted me. It was as thrilling as it was terrifying.
One of his hands left my leg and cupped the back of my neck. He pulled me to him until our foreheads touched.
“I want this,” he said, his voice thick and gruff. “Tell me you want this.”
“I want it.”
“Tell me you want me.”
I couldn’t. A long time ago I swore to myself I’d never be vulnerable again. I certainly wasn’t about to make that admission when all I currently wanted was a night of pretending and forgetting.

“Camden, I want you to know that when I sink into you, when I push your panties to the side and run my fingers through your wetness, this isn’t a one-time thing for us. This is the beginning.”
I shivered again. From his words, his promise—something I so desperately craved but was too terrified to take hold of.
I shifted my hips, pulling him to me until his erection brushed against my center.
“Tonight.” I gasped as he rubbed against me in the perfect spot. “It’s all I can promise.”
He chuckled, moving his mouth against my cheek, down to my jaw and my throat. “We’ll see about that.”

AP new - synopsis.jpg

He’s the boss. But she’s ready to take charge.

In this provocative and sexy* office romance, a cheeky new hire tempts a hotshot sports agent to mix business with pleasure.

Jenny: Job interviews are a bitch under the best of circumstances, but when your potential boss is the world’s biggest prick, that’s when you should simply walk away. It’s just that I need this job so badly—and I’m mesmerized by Ethan Mason’s piercing gaze. Men like him aren’t supposed to exist in real life. But under the tailored suits and GQ looks, Ethan simmers with barely restrained ambition. And no matter how hard I work to fight the attraction, I’m going to get burned.

Ethan: You don’t become a top agent without learning how to close deal. I always get what—or who—I want, by staying cool and in command. Then Jenny Jackson walks into my office with her lush curves and “screw you” attitude and blows away my intentions of keeping things professional. All I can think about is exploring the perfect body hidden beneath those conservative clothes or shutting her saucy mouth with one hot kiss. Jenny’s worth breaking the rules over—if I can convince her to break the rules for me.

*By sexy, we mean sexy. Like, 18+ sexy.
