  Sunny's Review:

Where to start...ok...Chase...sigh....seriously...Chase is AWESOME! You get to see the whole Alpha male in a different way. Chase is a surgeon so he has to have confidence and control. He takes that into his personal life with Lili but at the same time he has a softer unsure side too. You see it sometimes when he talks to her. I am not a huge fan of the jealousy but hey that can be overlooked in this case.
 
Now, Lili is awesome too. She is strong and independent and I love that Chase just kind of sweeps her off her feet. She has been going along fine but when he walks in she is a goner. I love that he takes care of her b/c after everything she has been through she deserves it. I also like that she is pretty down to earth about it. I don't feel like she was ever trying to take advantage.
 
Go get this book! I am giving it 4.3 stars out of 5. I love Chase and Lili and let me tell you I can't wait for Asher's story!!!

Title:  Beautifully Done (Beautifully Awake #2) 
Author: Riley Mackenzie 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 18+ 
Publication Date:  July 16, 2014


Synopsis

Diagnosis: Borrowed time 
Treatment: Trust 
Prognosis: Beautifully Done

Asher Craig drives fast, flies high, and screws hard. But make no mistake, he’s a gentleman. He learned way too young that we’re all on borrowed time. Fair or unfair, you only get one ride.

He vows to live for the moment because it’s the only time he owns. The past is beyond his control and the future may not exist. With his only loyalties being his family, he thrives for that edge where plunging over is always in the realm of possibility. 

When a beautiful familiar face tilts his axis, he re-examines everything and realizes that second chances are overrated and a lifetime of firsts are irreplaceable. In the end, it’s not her medical degree but his trust that needs to prove that the ride together is worth it ... until it’s Beautifully Done.

 ***Author's note*** Contains spoilers from Beautifully Awake. We highly recommend reading Chase and Lili's story first. For readers 18+

  Sunny's Review:

I absolutely loved Beautifully Awake. Chase and Lili were awesome and I am glad that I got to see a little bit more of them in this book. I really liked Asher in that book and honestly he just makes me fall in love with him in this book. I was not real happy about Talia in the beginning of this book but I am so glad that I stuck in out. This book was all over emotionally for me. I mean there was so much explained and I ended up really rooting for these two. I really hate wanting to write more but I am always afraid of spoiling something for you. There are so many things that are great about Ash and Talia but I want you to find out for yourself.
 
Go get this book!! Make sure you read Beautifully Awake first. I am giving this book 4.3 stars out of 5!

About the Authors

author picture
Yep. That's an “s.” There are two of us!

We’re East coast girls separated by Long Island Sound who met in Physician Assistant School and have been besties ever since. We can safely say that thirteen miles of water does not get in the way because we talk or text, no exaggeration, at least 150 times a day. No, really, we do—about everything and nothing. Shockingly, we never (we mean never) run out of things to say. Umm, ever. We definitely laugh A LOT and we’re a tad sarcastic. And if we’re being totally honest, one or two people might have, on occasion, used our names and ‘dramatic’ in the same sentence. But it’s hard to trust the sources since they married us.

It only took twelve years, two husbands, five kids, two dogs, and a two-week vacation in Cape Cod later to decide the romance world needed a splash of medicine. Write what you know.
So you can easily find us at 4 o'clock on Bank Street beach with a glass of cold Prosecco brainstorming. And guaranteed if we bump into you, literally, it’s only because our iPhones are glued to our hands (totally out of our control) either writing or editing our next novel (and yes, it is possible to do from your iPhone, we mastered it … damn those straight quotations).

When we are not working on our book or reading the latest angsty romance on our kindles, you basically name it and we have it going on. Soccer, lacrosse, golf, swimming, dance, gymnastics, football, chess, baseball, basketball, skiing, ice skating, school, homework, and more school. Oh yeah, did we forget to mention our careers in medicine?

Needless to say, we realized fast that something had to go, so we opted for sleep. It’s completely overrated (yet so AMAZING) and delirium makes everything funnier. Good thing we share a brain and can pretty much complete each other’s sentences (definitely weird, we know), otherwise it might have taken us two years to write Beautifully Awake rather than one.

 So that’s our story, who we are … just add AUTHORS to the list!

Run by Eve Vaughn!!




The Hunter…
Dare O’Shaughnessy had the world in the palm of his hand.  A man known and feared for his ruthlessness, his word was law. The last word he ever expected to hear was no. Until he met her.
The Prey…
Aya Smith despised the ruling class who looked down on hardworking people like her. Sick of being treated unfairly by laws that protect the wealthy and punish the poor, she takes a stand but soon realizes, she might have crossed the wrong man.
The Game…
Created as a government program to assist in the repopulation of the country when an untested drug wipes out millions of women, The Run eventually evolves into something much more sinister.  Now played for the amusement of the super rich, women down on their luck find themselves the prizes of sadistic masters.
Aya is forced to volunteer for The Run, and Dare, the most sadistic of all, places her in his crosshairs.She will belong to him, body and soul. But when he catches her will she succumb to his mastery, or will he find more trouble than he bargained for?
 

Darra's Review:

Run best described was gritty, intriguing and raw. Eve Vaughn has wrote a one of a kind plot that will suck you in till the last word. The synopsis is written well. However it does not give enough justice to describe how intense each character is.
They live in a time that each person would fear being a woman. All rights have went out the door. Middle class is non existent. The only people that matter are the upper class. The Dred's live in such poverty that each one is barely surviving.
The question is, can the upper class change and stop seeing the lower class as unnecessary group of things?
Aya and Dare will test that theory and despite all the vile things that occur, I can't imagine any reader would want the existing life style to continue till the end of the book. I wished for a change in how each characters life was before the beginning of the story.
 
I imagine the same for you.
 
Must read. My rating is a 4.5.   
 
 
 


 



Aya took a deep breath as she made her way to the bar being careful not to look directly in the direction of the jerk supreme. As she poured his drink, she was tempted to spit in it. With each move she made, Aya could feel his heated gaze on her. She wasn’t naive about men like him. They acted like they owned everything they saw. He was toying with them and threatening their livelihood because he could.
She used as much time as she dared to fix his drink before walking toward him, still refusing to make eye contact. Aya forced herself not to slam the glass down in front of him. “Will that be all, sir?” she asked through gritted teeth while she kept her gaze planted on her feet.
“Look at me.”
Aya didn’t want to stare into eyes so deep a green they were almost hypnotizing. They were her favorite shade and she resented the hell out of him for that. Thoughts of her uncle forced her to comply. Slowly, she raised her head until she met his gaze full on. That cruel smirk curved his lips.
“If there’s nothing else, I need to see to the needs of the other customers.”
“I was under the impression from the proprietor that you don’t deal with customers. Which one of you is lying?”
She bit the inside of her lip to hold back an angry retort.
The bastard had the nerve to chuckle. “No need to answer. I can see he was just protecting what’s his. I can’t say I blame him. What are you to him?”
“I don’t think that’s any of your business.”
“Fair enough.” He picked up his drink and took a sip all while his gaze roamed the bar. After placing the glass down, the smirk returned. “How much do you think a place like this would cost if someone wanted to invest for the purposes of tearing it down and rebuilding?”
The blood pounded in her head and she dug her nails into her palms. “He’s my uncle.”
He nodded in seeming approval. “Have a seat, Aya.”
She didn’t like how he used her name as if he had the right but she complied. “Look Mr. O’Shaughnessy, I don’t know what you’re trying to do here, but we don’t want any trouble. We’re sorry if you haven’t found the service to your satisfaction but we just want to be left alone. Please.”
“You seem like an intelligent woman. I would have thought it was fairly obvious what I wanted.”
She folded her hands in her lap and clinched them tightly together to keep herself from trembling. This couldn’t be happening. There had to be a way she could get herself out of this. She opted to play dumb. “I have no clue what you’re talking about.”
He narrowed his eyes. “I think you do. In fact, I know you do. So, let’s not play games. You can make this really easy on yourself. You and your uncle will be taken care of for as long as I want you. And when I no longer do, you’ll be well compensated. You’ll be under my protection.”
She fought back the urge to attack him. The arrogant son of a bitch. “And what if I don’t make things easy on myself?”
“I don’t think you want to know. But the end result will be the same. I will have you.”




USA Today Bestselling Author Eve Vaughn has always enjoyed creating characters and stories from an early age. As a child she was always getting into mischief, so when she lost her television privileges (which was often), writing was her outlet. Her stories have gotten quite a bit spicier since then! When she’s not writing or spending time with her family, Eve is reading, baking, traveling or kicking butt in 80’s trivia. She loves hearing from her readers.

Assumption by Aurora Rose!!!


Blurb

as·sump·tion:

a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof

 

They say when you assume that you make an ass out of you and me. Kenton Mayson learned this lesson firsthand when he made assumptions about Autumn Freeman and the kind of woman she is based on what little information he had. What he finds out is she’s not only beautiful, but also smart, funny, a fighter, and exactly the kind of woman he wants to share his life with. Autumn made assumptions of her own about Kenton, and now he needs to prove her wrong in order to protect her and their future.
 
 

Sunny's Review:

 

I really love this series and I can honestly say that this book is my favorite. I thought nobody could come close to being better than Asher but Kenton does. I am not really sure what it was that got me but he shot to the top of my Alpha Male list. Maybe I need to go back and reread Until November but wow!  I like Autumn too. She is awesome and puts Kenton in his place as needed. There were a couple of times in this book where I was sitting there with my mouth open. I can't say anymore about this but OMG you must read this book.
 
I am giving this book 4.6 stars out of 5. You really need to read this. You don't have to read the Until  series to understand this book but recommend it. The books are good and can you really get enough of the Alpha?

Conspire by Erin Noelle & S.E. Hall!!!



Synopsis
"He wants answers. 

She wants freedom. 

The search is over...when they Conspire."




   
 

Sunny's Review:

I absolutely love both of these authors. I have met Erin several times and on top of being an amazing author she is just a super awesome person. I haven't met SE Hall but I am totally in love with her writing. I am telling you this so that you know I had EXTREMELY high expectations for this book. Luckily, they did not let me down. Conspire is a really great book.
 
I love Bryce. He is awesome. First off, super smart guys are super HOT and Bryce totally super smart. I like that Jocelyn started fighting against her world. She isn't going along with her father blindly anymore. Honestly, I love Reagan too. She is funny and I really like her. There is mystery in this book and I really like that. It was nice to not have a straight romance.
 
I am giving this book 4.5 stars out of 5. I love it and I think you will too. GO GET IT!!!
 
Teaser





Excerpt
She giggles and kisses my lips softly. “I live here, so I’m not escaping, frowny-face. I need to use the bathroom.” She wrestles out from underneath my hold, stretching her arm to the chair beside the bed. Sitting up on the edge, she slips on a satin robe before standing.

“Why are you covering up that body, babe? I was already hard waiting to watch you go,” I tease…except not at all teasing.

“What?” She glances over her shoulder with a sassy grin. “You don’t like it?” She looks at her silky attire and runs her hands over the robe enticingly. “I’ll have you know, I’ve been told pink is my color.” Her mouth turns down subtly the second the words escape; a faraway sadness ghosting across her eyes for a fleeting second before she quickly dismisses the thought away and fakes a smile.

A surge of nausea consumes me, a shiver elicited with the chill that creeps up my spine, the unfair devil of irony dousing me in frigid shame and guilt.

It’s her—my Jocelyn—was Devon’s…fascination, his ‘I hope she feels the same.’

I just made love to the woman my little brother never even got a chance to ask on a date.
