A couple months ago I read Spring Break Renegade, and I fell in love with Ren and Meredith - hardcore. The book was relatively short, but it really stuck with me, and I am super excited to let you know book two is going to be released December 26!! Be sure to check back here then for my review, but for now check out this snippet and be sure to read my review. And then tell me you are going to read them both!!

Glitter and Grit by Jessie Evans - Blast

Glitter and Grit
Jessie Evans

This ride is going to last a lot longer than eight seconds…

Female professional bull rider, Reece Hearst, graduated from the school of hard knocks. With honors. Because life is like bull riding—when it sends you to the dirt, you do whatever it takes to get on your feet, even if you have to crawl. Like when officials stripped her of her rodeo queen title on the basis of vicious gossip years ago and not even her father would believe her side of the story. Reece could have stayed in the dust, wallowing. Instead, she fixed Lonesome Point in her rearview, joined the pro circuit, and never looked back. But now a serious injury threatens to end her career and she’s back in Lonesome Point, living next door to the family that once made her life a living hell.

After multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan and his father’s death, all Grayson Parker wants is to get his family’s cattle business back in the black and live a quiet life. But the return of Reece Hearst opens old wounds, throwing his ordered world into chaos. Grayson was serving overseas when Reece was a teenager and can’t believe the girl he once knew has grown into a heartbreaker as hardened as she is beautiful.

Grayson finds a kindred spirit in wounded Reece and soon longs to be the man to show her that there is life after pain and loss. But can two people as damaged as Reece and Grayson find their way to happily ever after? Or will the scars on their hearts forever keep them apart? 

Hope you are all ready for Friday!!  Check out Glitter and Grit, what do you think?  Is this going on your TBR?

Ice by Chelsea Camaron & Jessie Lane (review)

Title: Ice
Series: Regulators MC #1
Authors: Chelsea Camaron & Jessie Lane
Published: December 5, 2014 - Whiskey Girls Publishing
Format: Ebook received for review

She's an investment banker.
He's an outlaw biker.
A little bit of heaven is about to meet a whole lot of hell.

Morgan Powell was raised to be perfect, to set an example for her sisters to follow. Her life has been dedicated to making something of her career, so she wouldn’t know what to do with a man even if you gave her an instruction manual.

Brett 'Ice' Grady spends his days trying to keep up with his teenage daughter, his nights consumed in Regulators’ MC business. He has no time for anything more than a casual hookup. 

Two worlds collide when the dangers of his life crash into the calm of hers. 

Can she go beyond her own boundaries and chip her way through to the man known to be as cold as ice?

Loosely attached to Chelsea Camaron's Hellions series and Jessie Lane's Ex Ops series.

This week I read Ice by Chelsea Camaron and Jessie Lane - two authors I've read before and loved separately.  The question in my mind was "Would they work well together?"  The answer is definitely yes.  Ice was an exciting read, and I definitely feel this collaboration worked well for them.

Crush by JC Emery (Review & Giveaway)

Title: Crush
Series: Bayonet Scars #4
Author: JC Emery
Published: December 15, 2014 - Left Break Press
Format: Ebook provided for review

Young love is always perfect. Until it's not.

Cheyenne Grady is a total daddy's girl to her bad-ass father, the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club. She's funny, and kind, and she just wants that deep, earth-shattering love like her dad has with her school secretary, Holly. But Cheyenne's been looking in the wrong direction, because the only good that can come from the way she looks at Jeremy Whelan is a lesson in heartbreak.

Jeremy always wanted to prospect for the Forsaken Motorcycle Club and wear the same patch as his father. When a life-long dream becomes reality, Jeremy realizes that the outlaw lifestyle is not for the faint of heart. Nor is it easy on relationships. He wants to be a good man, but temptation is everywhere.

Cheyenne is beautiful, and strong, and exactly what Jeremy could have forever. As long as he doesn't screw it up.

Love is never more powerful than the first time.

Jeremy and Cheyenne's book!!!  Ahhhhh!  I've been waiting for this one, I tell ya.  Forsaken is one of my favorite motorcycle clubs, and Jer and Chey are definitely some favorites among the club.  If you haven't started this series, I definitely recommend it.  It has many different facets, and JC Emery just writes it perfectly.

An Imaginary House By The Sea by Cecily Gates (Review)

Title: An Imaginary House By The Sea
Series: A Bridgeport Novel
Author: Cecily Gates
Published: July 2014
Format: Ebook received for review

Snarky and ambitious Dawn Campbell almost had it all: a job producing lavish celebrity events, a hip downtown apartment, and a studmuffin of a boyfriend. But after losing all three in one fell swoop, Dawn finds herself resorting to the unimaginable: returning home to Bridgeport, an oceanside town where the air smells sweet but not much happens.

When a chance encounter brings her into the sturdy arms of John Brown, her childhood best friend, old feelings come rushing back. As the sparks fly, life finally starts to look up for Dawn...until she meets his wife. 

Marguerite Brown has everything that Dawn doesn’t: a killer fashion sense, a breathtaking beauty, and a French accent—oh, and the kind of temperament that makes great white sharks seem docile in comparison. Determined to release John from an unhappy marriage, Dawn turns on the charm and makes a plan to finally win back her one-that-got-away.

But after Dawn stumbles upon a secret that, up until now, Marguerite has meticulously kept hidden, the two women are thrust into an unexpected friendship. An Imaginary House by the Sea follows Dawn’s journey towards self-rediscovery, finding purpose, and building a more complex, steadfast kind of love than she could have ever imagined.

An Imaginary House By The Sea isn't my normal type of read.  But sometimes you pick up a book, and you just know.  Well, Cecily Gates really wrote a fantastic novel here, and I am so happy I was able to read it.  This book is filled with heart, and you feel it on every single page.

All I Need by Emily Goodwin (Review)

Title: All I Need
Series: Stay #2
Author: Emily Goodwin
Published: December 2, 2014
Format: Ebook received for review

“My life was hell, nothing but pain and darkness.

Every night I hoped I’d lay down to sleep and never wake up. I saw no reason to keep going. There was nothing for me, no promise of a better life. Every morning I woke up hoping this would be my last day.

Then I met her, and everything changed.”

Sold into slavery at a young age, Jackson Porter has known nothing but darkness until he is forced to kidnap a young woman with a fiery spirit who refuses to give up. Could she be all Jackson needs to awaken his dead soul? 

You met Jackson in Stay, now it’s time to hear his story.

Warning, this book is dark, graphic, and twisted at times.

 All I Need is Jackson's story, and it's a hell of a story.  Emily Goodwin has definitely proved she can write across several genres with ease.  If you haven't gotten into the Stay series yet, you need to pick it up.
