Throwback Fav ❤: Veiled Innocence by Ella Frank


“It wasn’t good. It wasn’t evil. It was just love.”


Throwback to one of my fav, actually no, this is definitely my favorite student/teacher romance.

I just love me a forbidden love story. But what I love even more is being so pleasantly surprised when picking up a book from an author I haven’t read before. It’s always a gamble not knowing what to expect or if I’ll like the writing or the author’s style, but Veiled Innocence was more than just a pleasant surprise – it was compelling, sexy, emotional, and I could not put it down. I DEVOURED THIS BOOK and loved every second of it.

Though the blurb doesn’t tell you so, this story is about a student, Addison, who seduces her teacher, Grayson. Addison is a heroine I wasn’t expecting. She was feisty, brazen, and was not scared to sink her claws into Grayson with no thoughts of consequence or remorse.

“But Mr. McKendrick… I knew he’d be different. He’d touch me the way I desired, and he’d take me the way I craved. Not like a boy—but like a man.”

She pursues him relentlessly with zero shame and Grayson, that poor man, never even stood a chance. Though he tries to fight off her advances, he eventually realizes he just can’t.

“Addison, it’s natural to form attachments to your teachers.”

“Is it natural to picture them fucking you?”

These two start an illicit affair, and through it all, you learn about Addison’s broken past and inner struggles, and start to understand why she seeks out her teacher- a man who seems to help calm the “madness” inside her and helps her finally feel at peace in what seems like, to her, forever.

“This afternoon. My place. Be there, and I’ll teach you the rest of the lesson.”

“Oh yeah?” she snapped at me. “And what’s that?”

Her anger didn’t leave her as her eyes wandered over me. When they came back to rest on my face, they were a stormy grey—from which emotion I couldn’t be sure, but it didn’t matter. Nothing could have stopped me.

“I’ll teach you how to come with a man inside you.” I removed my hand from the door and released the lock. “Not a boy, Addison, a man. Now go.”

The scenes between Addison and Grayson were INSANELY HOT. I am talking mouth dropping, panty-combusting, scorching hotness. This woman knows how to write one steamy scene.

“She was breathtaking. She was beautiful. I was in so fucking deep with her that no one could save me now.”

Ella Frank created two flawed characters and such unforgettable scenes that alternated between erotic and emotionally charged, which were all weaved into a beautiful forbidden love story.

“I never knew.” He took my lips in a kiss that was as tender as it was passionate before he spoke again in a state of astonishment. “I never knew that I’d risk everything, even my freedom, just to touch someone. Just to touch you.”

This story had everything I would have wanted in a forbidden student/teacher romance, but it is a love story first and foremost, and I cannot recommend it enough to all the hopeless romantics out there.

“No one ever told me that loving someone would feel like you were giving up every last part of yourself, but that’s how I feel, Addison. From the second I saw you, I was done. I gave it all to you.”

Want to read perfection? Then read The Sea Of Tranquility by Katja Millay ❤

I never really post about sales on the blog (usually only on FB) but when I saw that my most FAVORITE BOOK of all the books was on sale, I HAD TO share.

This book. This book is literal perfection. The most perfect book with the most perfect ending EVER. Click here to read my 5 star review!

  The Sea Of Tranquility by Katja Millay ➜ http://amzn.to/2vG7u0B 

READ IT! Devour it. Come thank me later 😉

“I lied,” I say, even though I’m lying now. “I told him you were mine.”

“Just so you know,” she says, her smile fading as her eyes lock onto mine. “You didn’t lie.”


“…maybe I’m a liar and I do need it, because being kissed by Josh Bennett is kind of like being saved. It’s a promise and a memory of the future and a book of better stories.”

“I love you, Sunshine,” I tell her, before I lose my nerve. “And I don’t give a shit whether you want me to or not.”

“And then he kisses me. Tentatively at first, waiting for something, but there isn’t any need. I would kiss him forever. I will kiss him forever. I know it like I know my own name.”




Royally Endowed by Emma Chase ❤ Review & Excerpt!


Royally Endowed (Royally #3) by Emma Chase – 4.5 Stars


I groan against her lips. “I burn for you, sweet girl. I dream of you, even when I’m awake.”

I adored this book!

For those who don’t know these characters, a quick summary: Logan is a bodyguard for the Royal family of Wessco who is assigned to look after Ellie, sister to Princess Olivia (from book 1, Royally Screwed). Ellie is quirky, energetic, and wants to live life at full speed.


Logan grew up around criminals and has tried to better himself by being a part of something honorable and noble. He’s smart, tough, amazing at his job, and it doesn’t hurt he’s not bad to look at.

“Logan St. James. Bodyguard. Totally badass. Sexiest guy I have ever seen—and that includes books, movies and TV, foreign and domestic. He’s the perfect combo of boyishly could-go-to-my-school kind of handsome, mixed with dangerously hot and tantalizingly mysterious. If comic-book Superman, James Dean, Jason Bourne and some guy with the smoothest, most perfectly pitched, British-Scottish-esque, Wessconian-accented voice all melded together into one person, they would make Logan fucking St. James.”

The fact that this man can snap someone’s neck and not break a sweat just….does things to me. Let’s not think too hard on what that says about me. But more on him below.

After years of watching over Ellie and seeing her grow into the lively woman she is, Logan has tried to ignore his attraction to her and Ellie’s blatant flirtatious stares and comments. Logan knows falling for someone he is meant to protect is completely off limits. But try as he may, he can’t deny his feelings and is tired of pretending she isn’t what he wants.

“I want you. I want you so much, some nights it feels like my skin is on fire. My bones burn with it.”
“Fucking hell—”
“I can’t think, I can’t eat . . . When I sleep, you’re all I see.” I rub my neck, and everything inside is needy and tight. “When I touch myself . . .”
“Christ, Ellie—” He sounds like he’s drowning.
“. . . you’re all I feel. You, Logan.” 

I’m going to take a moment here to talk about Logan. Because, wow. What a fucking dreamboat. What a perfect male specimen. I LOVE heroes who take no shit but have a sweet spot for their girl.

“I’ll give it to you sweet, Ellie.” He breathes hard. “I swear I’ll make it so fucking sweet you’ll ache…but now I just…I need…”
My hips rotate and I’m rubbing myself up and down on the rock-hard length of his cock beneath his pants. My head thrashes. “I know. I know, Logan. Just take…please.”


“There are abilities I’m skilled at—familiar with—fighting and fucking, battles and weapons, sensing danger, and knowing how to keep those in my care safe from harm. But love . . . I’m ignorant of it. The word has never passed my lips, and the feeling is as alien to me as the sentiment. What I do know, what I’m sure of, is that I would die for Ellie. Kill for her, live for her. The vow echoes through me with every beat of my heart. She is the most important person in my life. She has been from the beginning, and she always will be. There will never be another. “

I’m not sobbing. There’s just something in my eye.

“I don’t know if I’ll be any fucking good at love. I’m not quite sure how it’s done. But, for her, I’ll learn.”

Okay maybe I am sobbing. Just a little. How perfect is he?????

Royally Endowed was a mix of sweet, sexy, funny and forbidden deliciousness. I def recommend this book even if you haven’t read the others in the series! (Click here for my review of Book 1 Royally Screwed and here for my review of Book 2 Royally Matched.)

P.S. I really really REALLY hope Tommy gets a book next!

Royally Endowed is out today! Keep scrolling for more book info and an excerpt!

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.




But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.

Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.

My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.

There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.

“Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”

And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.

I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.

Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”

There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.

And Logan’s watching me again.

Watching my mouth.

His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced. Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.

I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.

And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.

Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.

Review: Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare ❤


Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices #2) by Cassandra Clare – 5 Stars


“I never minded it,” he went on. “Being lost, that is. I had always thought one could not be truly lost if one knew one’s own heart. But I fear I may be lost without knowing yours.” – Jem

“I did it because I love you!” he half-shouted, and then, as if registering the shocked look on her face, he said in a more subdued voice, “I love you, Tessa, and I have loved you, almost since the moment I met you.” – Will

“I cannot explain love,” he said. “I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you. That you were the center of everything I did and felt and thought.” – Jem

WHAT THE F*CK. This book, man. This played with my head and my emotions nonstop. This book made me fall even harder for the sarcastic, angel-faced, bad boy, Will. This also made me adore Jem. HARD. I thought he was incredibly sweet in book one, but this made me understand Tessa’s confusion between the two.

But my alliance? My alliance to Will is even stronger. I mean how can you not just obsess over him????? LOOK AT THAT FIRST QUOTE.

And just bravo to the author for writing the first book that contains a love triangle that I have read and didn’t hate. That has NEVER happened before. I avoid love triangles like the plague but something about this one just worked.

Reading book 3 RIGHT NOW!


Review: Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare – 4/4.5 Stars


With the amount of mixed opinions this series seems to get, I’m actually surprised I loved this so much. Especially because it is filled with things that would usually annoy me: BLATANTLY obvious plot twists, cliché bad boy / good girl, love triangle in the works, and it’s also apparently very similar to her other series. But in all fairness I have never read a book by this author so if this is similar to her other work, I wouldn’t have a clue.

All I know is I was immediately entertained by this.


I immediately liked Tessa even though she was such a naïve heroine. There was something about her limited view of, well, almost everything that made me kind of feel bad for her and just want to protect her. Especially when dickhead Will was so hot and cold with her.

Speaking of Will…


I was immediately Team Will. Like, the second he opened his sarcastic mouth, I was a goner.

“I think you ought to let me take poor Tessa into town to get some new clothes. Otherwise, the first time she takes a deep breath, that dress will fall right off her.”
Will looked interested. “I think she should try that out now and see what happens.”

See? Such a little shit. I love it.

To all the Jem/Tessa shippers out there who are probably thinking “Of COURSE you love Will. How cliché”- I’m sorry! Jem is so so sweet but man oh man I just love me an endearing asshole. I can’t help it. It’s also quite clear there is reasoning to why Will acts the way he does, though it hasn’t been revealed yet. And I’m pretty sure I already know what the reason is. And SHOCKER – I’M NOT EVEN MAD. This would annoy me to no end in any other case, but GAHHH I want to see how this “secret” of his and his relationship with Tessa and everything else all plays out.


Running off to start book 2!

A short review of Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher


Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher – 4 Stars


You know why I liked this book?


There was so much yearning. And I eat that shit up.

Even though the heroine was a complete narcissist and I wanted to put her and the hero in a choke hold at times, I still really enjoyed this.

I didn’t completely understand Yara. I didn’t get why she did half of the things she did.

But what I did know?

When I had to put this down, I wanted to pick it back up. I wanted to see where this was all going. I speed-read through the last half because I NEEDED to see how everything would turn out. And despite their flaws, I loved David and Yara together. Their banter and flirting was comical and sweet and towards the end they really made hurt and feel for them both.

And I don’t know why but this part:

“I’m back. Find me.”

…just killed me. I had the biggest fucking smile on my face. (I know those 4 words won’t make much sense to those who haven’t read this, but those who did know exactly what part I am referring to.)

So because of all of this, this one was a winner.

Some of my fav quotes:

“I’d stared up at the sky and thought about how I didn’t believe anymore—not in God or his creation. Definitely not in love. She’d come as a thief in the night and taken it all away. How could a person do that? How could they have so much power?”

“So tell me, David Lisey, what’s the meaning of love? Enlighten me.” For a moment I think he’s not going to answer me. He stares down into his drink thoughtfully and when he looks up, his eyes are soft, sincere. “I’ve thought a lot about that, actually. It’s when you can’t get someone out. They crawl inside you and they just live there for the rest of your life.”

 “How can you still love me after what I did?” I ask him. His chin is dipped down to his chest and he seems to be in deep thought after having confessed that to me. “I never loved you for what you did or didn’t do,” he says. “That’s not what love is.”

“I’m just a simple man who fell in love with a complex woman.”



TRUST by Kylie Scott – Now Live!

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen year old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

“You were going to give it up to Duncan Dickerson?” he sneered. “Are you serious?”

I halted, staring at him. This was not good. “How do you know about that?”

“Anders overheard you and Hang talking.”


“Well?” he demanded, acting all authoritarian. Idiot.

“To be fair, I didn’t know his last name was Dickerson,” I said. “That’s unfortunate. Though, I wasn’t actually planning on marrying him, so . . .”

“Not funny.”

I shrugged.

“You barely know the guy.”

“Um, yeah. None of your concern. We’re not talking about this.” How mortifying! My face burned bright. People should just gather around and cook s’mores. “I appreciate that we’re friends. You mean a lot to me. But this is going to have to fall under definitely none of your damn business, so go away please.”

“We’re talking about it.” He advanced a step.

“No we are not.” And I retreated.

“You were going to let a complete stranger touch you.” Advance.

Retreat. “People do it all the time. You do it all the time.”

“But you don’t,” he said, taking the final step, backing me up against the side of his car and getting all in my face. “Edie, this is your first time we’re talking about. Isn’t it?”

“Yes, and it’s going to be messy and painful and probably horribly embarrassing and I just want it over and done with.” I tried to meet his eyes but failed, settling for a spot on his right shoulder. “You’re not a girl; you wouldn’t understand. Also, last time I checked, you’re not the gatekeeper of my hymen, John Cole. So back the fuck off.”

He said nothing.

Deep, calming breaths. “Look, someday I’ll meet someone I really like and we’ll have a deep and meaningful relationship and go at it like bunnies. But I don’t want to be the dumb virgin in that scenario.”

He slowly shook his head.

“Also, I do not want to die a virgin.”

“What? What the hell are you talking about?”

“Hey, you and I both know death can occur at any time.”

“This is crazy.”

“I’m seeing a therapist!” I told his shoulder. “I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m a little bit messed up these days. It’s hard for me to trust people. That’s not going to change anytime soon.”

He screwed up his face at me. “Wha—”

“I’m just trying to be practical.”

“Well, you’re being ridiculous. None of this makes sense.”

“It does to me.”

Again, he said nothing.

In fact, he said nothing for so long that I finally looked him in the eye. The anger had left him, replaced by an emotion I didn’t recognize. Worst of all, he still smelled like summer. A little sweat and the open night air, everything I loved. Liked. I meant liked.

“What?” I said, finally.

He let loose a breath. “I’ll do it.”
