This is a spin off from the
Jack & Jill Series .
Although a standalone, it contains spoilers for this series…and it’s a 5Star series you don’t want to miss! 



Lake Jones is a cover girl for cutting-edge prosthetic legs, a binge-watcher of Netflix, known to spy on her neighbor through her door’s peephole, and fond of laser games with her hairless cat. She’s also a bit sexually-frustrated. 

Until … 

God bestows a breath of mercy upon her in the form of Minnesota’s NFL starting quarterback. But this gift is no stranger. Lake met Cage Monaghan three years earlier. 

It was one day. 

One moment. 

One kiss that resurrected her dreams of finding love. 

His dimpled smile distracts from his imperfections, which include: a love for country music, fishing, and a feline-hating girlfriend. 

When life finally gives them their chance, it’s a humorous and heart-wrenching journey to find their place in the world. 

“We would be Cage and Lake. We would be unpredictable. We would be reckless. We would give normality the middle finger.”

“Let’s never be in love. Let’s fall every day without ever touching the ground.”

Be still our beating hearts because we’ve fallen head over heels in love with this book! We never thought Jewel E Anne would produce a hero to equal the divine Luke Jones from the Jack & Jill Series –  in Cage Monaghan she has! Talk about sweeping us off our feet. Cage is an explosion of swooon!

‘Lake was her own universe, and when I had the pleasure of being part of it, I wasn’t a famous football player and I wasn’t the man grieving his father. I was the guy who wanted to make being with her a full-time profession.’

The words swoony, romantic and heart-warming don’t adequately express the feelings we had for this love story as our hearts overflowed with huge helpings of sharp wit, happiness, laughter, love, romance and a few heart gripping moments. What more could we ask for?

“When your season begins and we don’t see each other as much, can you do me a favour?”
“Don’t forget to love me.”
“I’ll forget how to throw a football before I’ll forget to love you.”

Jewel E Ann has a true gift. She’s such a seamless storyteller. Her comedic timing is perfection, knowing exactly when we need that blast of humour when she’s breaking our hearts.  Not only does she deliver the most gorgeous hero’s, but her heroines are ones we want to emulate. We want to be Lake Jones! She’s kick arse, sweet, grabs life by the balls and she doesn’t mind laughing at herself. This girl doesn’t shy away from the truth and she’s funny as all hell though she did have one moment towards the end that had us questioning her actions and reasoning.

We first met Lake, Luke’s sister in the Jack & Jill Series  (if you haven’t read this series…you need to because it’s spectacular), after Lake had a brief encounter with Cage Monaghan yet he had a profound effect on her life, and they shared a connection that began that day… ‘I knew him for a few hours. One day. One kiss. One moment. One unforgettable memory.’ at a time when Lake had been working through the unimaginable grief of surviving a car accident that claimed the life of her boyfriend Ben, and was feeling pretty much at rock bottom. Not only that, but she had to cope with losing her lower leg. However Lake doesn’t just accept her disability, she embraces it and oh my God, didn’t the witty banter between Cage and Lake in regards to her missing leg have us in fits of laughter.

“Time is too precious to waste. I don’t want to plan. I want to live.”

It’s three years later and they pick up where they left off, each feeling the connection once again ignite “And Lake…I remember the kiss. I remember it well” and although their feelings were instant in the timing of the story, not once did this feel like insta love as we experienced every ounce of feeling between them and not only that, we believed in their love. They’re soulmates but that doesn’t mean their relationship isn’t without its ups and downs as their way through family and careers.

‘After his whole body visibly relaxed and I was certain that he was asleep, I looked in the direction of God and whispered, “Can I keep him? Pretty please?”

These days it’s so rare to experience a book that focuses solely on the love, romance and fun of the evolving relationship between a couple, and considering Cage’s profession it would have been so easy for this author to have taken us down the overused celebrity cliché route, but she didn’t and in return this story felt like a bit of a refreshing change.

We were completely invested One, positively giddy with  hearts swelling and faces grinning. So…it was with a smidgen of disappointment that we were met with, what we felt, unnecessary angst so late in the story. Sure, it pulled at our heartstrings but it also had a downside in that it seemed to change Lake’s persona. Lake came across a little self-centred, the very opposite to how she was throughout the rest of the story. Whilst we wish it part of the storyline hadn’t been there (and that’s a purely personal thing), we soon realised that after that beautiful epilogue and coming to the end, this was a small hiccup in an otherwise immensely enjoyable read.

“Football is my job. Let me worry about it. You are my life…worry about that. “

We can’t possibly leave without once again mentioning our hero Cage Monaghan *insert huge swoony sigh here*. Oh Cage, you sweet, irresistible, gorgeous man! Not only are you a gifted NFL Quarterback but you have a romantic heart the size of Texas where our girl Lake is concerned. Nobody but nobody does romance like this guy. We highlighted so much of this book we could use the quotes as a review and you’d be swooning and swaying, 1clicking this book, going ga ga over Cage. Passionate, loving and a bit of a dirty talker, this guy is it and so is this book. We adored every character and for all that’s holy, please give Flint Hopkins a book! We desperately loved One and know you will too!

‘I nodded, giving Flint a blank stare. The man was an enigma – a hard-ass with a million layers, and I had no idea what he kept hidden beneath them. I wasn’t sure I really wanted to know.’

Forbidden love is hell…

Confident and quirky, Jo Sanford thinks her boss is God’s gift to women–and she couldn’t be further from the truth. Devilishly handsome, Luc DeVille will stop at nothing to lure his administrative assistant right into his arms–and bed.

Over Rafe Goodman’s dead body…

Rafe, Jo’s best friend, refuses to sit by and watch as Luc tries to win the heart of the woman he’s always protected. After all, Rafe is her guardian angel. Suddenly, Jo’s caught in the middle of a battle between good and evil. But the closer she gets to the fire, the hotter it burns. Now, Jo’s going to learn that when love battles lust, Heaven and Hell collide.


 Tempting Jo by Nancee Cain

To my surprise, Mr. DeVille scratches Atticus behind the ears instead of pushing him away. “Since we’re stuck here, what should we do?” Finished with his sandwich, he wipes his mouth with his thumb. I’d have been more than willing to lick it clean for him.

A pounding on the door interrupts us. Dadgumit, just when things are about to get interesting with Mr., er, Luc. I scurry to the door, intent on getting rid of whoever it is. I find Rafe holding a bag of food and two cups of coffee.

“Hey, I figured your power was still out, so I brought you some coffee and breakfast.” His eyes scan my small apartment, narrowing when he spies Luc.

Mr. DeVille smirks. “What impeccable timing. Goodman, is it?” He casually swings his legs over the side of the bed and steps into his pants.

“Yes, sir.” Although polite, Rafe’s voice has an edge to it. The tension in the air snaps like an impending storm. “The roads are clear, although Mrs. Cabot called and said not to come to work today since schools are still closed and the power remains off for much of the area. Here included, I see.”

“How astute of you to notice. No wonder I pay you the big bucks. Of course Mrs. Cabot said to stay home. It isn’t her losing money, is it?”

Mr. DeVille pulls off my sweatshirt, revealing those cut abs. I stare unabashedly, and Rafe snaps his fingers in front of my face. Luc buttons his shirt, glaring at Rafe the entire time.

“Well, Friday. Thank you for the hospitality. I’m sure since Goodman flew here on the icy roads to check on you, I’ll have no problems getting home. I suggest you take today to study for your classes, and remember I’ll be more than happy to help with your homework assignments.” His eyes flash with desire, and my cheeks heat.

Rafe snarls, looking positively feral.

“A-Are you sure the roads are okay? Would you like a cup of this coffee before you go?”

“I only brought two cups,” Rafe protests.

Shocked by his rudeness—and to our boss, no less—I quickly offer, “Mr. DeVille can have my cup.” What has gotten into him?

Ignoring Rafe, Mr. DeVille turns to me as he shrugs into his coat. “That’s quite all right. Thank you, Friday.” He gives me a conspiratorial wink and a smile.

Rafe, in comparison, receives a cool nod. The hair on my arms stands on end when Mr. DeVille stops and turns to face my friend. I must be having some sort of low blood sugar event because I swear it looks like the rims of his blue eyes have turned the color of a hot stove eye. I blink and find him glaring at Rafe, and the look is returned in kind. Good thing we aren’t living in a century past. If we were, I’m quite certain there would be a duel at fifty paces. He leaves without saying another word.

Rafe slams the door with a muttered, “Good riddance.”

I cross my arms in front of my chest. “Thanks a lot.”

“You’re welcome.” He ignores my sarcasm.

I sigh and gratefully accept the warm to-go cup. I can’t stay mad at him for long; he’s my best friend.

And he has coffee.

A smokin’ hot rogue angel in this witty and sexy forbidden romance.

Perfect Rage

Reviewed by Gitte & Jenny

“Do you know what it’s like to be afraid to fall asleep because of nightmares, but they aren’t nightmares. They are real things I’ve done and I have to wake up again and live with that. But far worse is the constant fear of waking up with no memories at all. Forgetting her.”

Nashoda Rose is one of the most brilliant and vivid storytellers out there. Her attention to detail is flawless and her timelines across her two series is spot on. Her heart and love for her characters and the ever developing story lines are clearly evident and it transfers over to the reader, without question. We have been with these characters since day one and never has one been compromised nor has the story suffered, Nashoda Rose stays true to both and it was a pure joy to once more read such an amazing instalment.

‘I’d needed to feel the pain of losing him over and over again. It was my reminder of him. It kept him alive within me. Our time had been a mere breath in the wind, but I’d left with a lifetime of love.’

We’ve been so excited yet apprehensive to start Perfect Rage; after all this is Connor’s book. If you don’t know who Connor is we urge you to start from the very beginning then make your way through the series reading order. As we knew would probably happen our hearts bled then broke into tiny shattered pieces as we travel back in time and learn of how a doomed love affair began which was instant and intense yet believable under the circumstances. Two hearts becoming one only to be torn asunder by circumstances, violence, crime and tragedy. We almost held our breaths as we willed this love to conquer all.

‘We were. We are. And neither of us could change that.’

Connor is one of the most beautiful, fiercest, protective and tragic characters we’ve met. We cried for him as we prayed for his recovery. No man shall be left unmarked after evil. Yet through love, integrity and purity of soul comes healing. No woman can be left unscarred by tragedy yet through strength, friendship and love she will overcome and understand. Alina was wise beyond her years and stronger than she gave herself credit for. Connor and Alina’s love affair began only to be battered, tested and torn to pieces. How could the pieces ever be re-found, remembered and pieced together again? Memory is a deeply rooted part of us that can guide us and bring us hope and understanding. It brings us moments of light when everything is cloaked in darkness. If the light is gone how do we heal?

“I’m lost, baby. I’m so fuckin’ lost and you’re the only one to keep me from disintegrating.”

Nashoda Rose guided us through a journey of tears and joy, sacrifice and hope, friendship and loyalty. Our hearts slowly but surely knitted together again through perseverance, love and understanding. We loved being back with characters whose own journey we’d lived through as we once again felt the after-effects of utter evil and wickedness.

‘I’d never had sweet. Never had this undeniable swell in my chest or the fear of losing something.’

THIS is why we read, this is why we love this Author. This is why we are addicted. We feel her passion and her masterful grasp of the written word. Once again, Nashoda Rose reaffirms her place on that pedestal we regard her to be on when it comes to her books. Her characters are full of strength, protection, passion and ultimately love. We have embraced them all, as each has left a mark on us and stay in our hearts forever.

THICK & THIN (Thick Love #3) by EDEN BRADLEY
We’ve been waiting on the conclusion to Ransom & Ally’s story from Thick Love! If you love angst and passion, grab this series!
My love was thick.
Her faith was thin.
Somewhere in the middle is where life found us.

I claimed her when I was a boy.
I held her until I was a man.
She was my first thought every morning, my last smile at night, and a million memories in between.
Then one night, with her warmth still lingering on the sheets, Aly King walked away from me, from us, from our life.
They say time heals all wounds, but not for me.
Not when my heart is empty.
Not when there is nothing but a sea of meaningless faces wherever I go.
It always comes back to her.
Aly needs reminding of how drunk our love made us, before she forgets completely.
Before we lose our chance.
Before we are irrevocably broken.

We’re really looking forward to more of this sweeping saga of a Southern Dynasty

In Charlemont, Kentucky, the Bradford family is the crème de la crème of high society—just like their exclusive brand of bourbon. And their complicated lives and vast estate are run by a discrete staff who inevitably become embroiled in their affairs. This is especially true now, when the apparent suicide of the family patriarch is starting to look more and more like murder…

No one is above suspicion—especially the eldest Bradford son, Edward. The bad blood between him and his father is known far and wide, and he is aware that he could be named a suspect. As the investigation into the death intensifies, he keeps himself busy at the bottom of a bottle—as well as with his former horse trainer’s daughter. Meanwhile, the family’s financial future lies in the perfectly manicured hands of a business rival, a woman who wants Edward all to herself.

Everything has consequences; everybody has secrets. And few can be trusted. Then, at the very brink of the family’s demise, someone thought lost to them forever returns to the fold. Maxwell Bradford has come home. But is he a savior…or the worst of all the sinners?

Wicked Mafia Prince

Reviewed by Jenny & Gitte

“When I touch you, I want you. And I feel lost.”
“You’re never lost when I’m in the world.”

What a fabulously enthralling and gripping second book in the Dangerous Royals Romance series. Each book has taken us on a suspense filled journey with Viktor’s book making us desperate for the next book as the search to fulfil their prophecy continues. We can’t get enough of this romantic, passionate, suspenseful and addictive series as Annika Martin takes us into her world with hearts pounding and fingers eagerly turning the page as the story races towards its crescendo.

‘Fighting men didn’t scare me; it was my dark past I was frightened of.’

And don’t get us started on those Dragusha brothers and the women who own their hearts!! It’s passionate, raw and all consuming, the bond and love between these brothers who will stop at nothing to be reunited keeps us riveted and urging them on!

We garnered snippets about Viktor in Aleksio’s book, Dark Mafia Prince. He was the tough quiet brooding brother who grew up in a Russian orphanage after a tragedy had taken him from his family when he was only a toddler. His story is as equally tragic as Aleksio’s and possibly even more so as Viktor carries the guilt and suffering deep in his heart for a decision that haunts him to his core.

“You see a ghost. You see this woman with your eyes, but I see her with my heart.”

Viktor was taken by the Bratva, the Russian Mafia at a young age and groomed to be an Assassin. It is there he meets Tanechka Stepanov, a woman who would completely and utterly steals his heart.  Viktor deeply loved this woman who was such a contradiction. Tanechka loved warmth and sunflowers, but could cold bloodedly kill a man without blinking an eye. She fiercely loves Viktor, he owns her heart until an act of betrayal rips them apart.

“You’re not a terrible person, you’re just a man who feels deeply. You want to be loved. To be forgiven.”

We remember Viktor, constantly watching a streaming of a live slave auction at a brother called Valhalla that is run by their sworn enemy, Bloody Lazarus. What was it that had Viktor so consumed, watching these feeds night and day, never taking his eyes off one of the women. Viktor has struggled to live with the pain of losing Tanechka and has had to live with the aftermath of his actions, of his betrayal.  Could it be her? Is Tanechka back in his life? Is she undercover or is it even really her and if so…how?

‘I know it’s her. I’ll always know moya Tanechka – my Tanechka.’

Well, you’ll have to see for yourselves how it unfolds, as Annika Martin once again crafted a deliciously engrossing story of love, loss, violence and revenge that had our pounding as we once again took a walk, or rather a high speed chase, through her gripping and exciting Mafiya world.

“Have I ever told you fucking Russians are way too fucking dramatic?”

The story of the Dragusha brothers and their quest has captured our imagination and kept us on our toes, yet beneath all the suspense, violence and mayhem lies the beautiful story of soul searing second chance love that gripped our hearts. OMG! We need the next book now! A definite recommendation of what is becoming one of our favourite Mafia romance series.

“Together the Dragusha brother will rain fire on Bloody Lazarus. And we’ll have our empire back.”

Don’t look at me like that. So trusting.
Like you think I’m not a monster.
Like I won’t wrap your hair in my fist and bend you to my will.
Like I won’t sacrifice you, piece by piece, to save my brother.
I’m the most dangerous enemy you’ll ever have because every time you look at me, you see somebody good. That friend who died.
And when you look at me like that, I die again.
I spent years making myself invisible.
A good girl, apart from the noise.
Then you came back, beautiful and deadly in your Armani suit.
Don’t look at me like you still know me, you say.
But I remember your smile and those sunny days.
Before they lowered your small casket into the ground.
Before they told us the prince was dead.
