‘Love was a risk. It was wild and unpredictable. You could either hold on for the ride, not knowing how it would end, or you could let go and never know the amazing you could’ve had.’

We love J. Daniels writing. Her heroes are completely swoon worthy and her heroines are adorable and full of sass. We absolutely fell in love with how this story began. A wrong number that changed lives. There’s something so romantic and hot about flirty banter and opening yourself up to a complete stranger. The bonus being that there’s an attraction and friendship before having laid eyes on the other person. LOVED that!

“Hello! Remove the dildo from your fucking mouth and fucking speak.”

“Think you might have the wrong number, Wild. I don’t normally suck on dildos after six o’clock on Tuesdays.”

Four Letter Word was quite an addictive read that pretty much had every emotion in it. It was sweet, funny, sexy and passionate. It had the right amount of drama and angst, though the insta love did irk us a bit. We completely understood that initial intense connection and attraction but what was to come romance wise in such a short space of time just seemed a tad over the top and we would’ve liked to have seen them a bit further down the line when it would’ve felt more believable. It was such a beautiful and emotional story  though, we just think hearts would’ve been more guarded. But hey that’s us.

‘My world was one miserable mistake-shaping second after another, except for the breas in my misery that belonged to her. And no way was I ready to give that up. Best two and a half weeks of my life came from a girl who was never meant to give me anything. And she was giving me everything.’

Brian’s story broke our hearts. Suffering a weight of guilt from a horrific moment in time which had tragic consequences. He went to extreme lengths to make some form of amends for his actions. And when we say extreme, well…..So many other options available and that’s what he goes for?! Brian hates what he’s become because of his own doing- well we felt so sorry for the bloke and wanted to shake some sense into him. Good thing Sydney felt like we did and did just that! Oh and we have to mention that Brian is one hell of a dirty talker- this man is s.e.x.y!!!!

‘She was fucking fantastic. Passionate in her defence. Silver-tongued and ball busting.’

Sydney’s world it turned upside down which sees her fleeing to her bessie mates’ house, Tori. Best decision ever! Sometimes it takes certain events to show us that really, we’re coasting along and perfecting routine and settling for what’s become a habit. Her self-discovery of her own repressed emotions and habitual life in general is helped along by a mistaken phone call. We loved her sense of humour and her rediscovered passion for life and making the most out of it.  Wild and Trouble, we fell in love with their beginnings of love.

‘Her good was better. Better than I was worth and she knew it. I knew it. Didn’t change the fact I wanted her more than I could remember wanting anything. Ever. How fucked up is that? I knew I didn’t deserve her.’

We also enjoyed the secondary characters; they added so much to the story and roused our appetites for what’s potentially coming from them, especially Stitch! So yeah, definitely recommend this one and look forward to the next book in the series.

‘Don’t get comfortable being happy. It’ll only hurt worse when it’s gone.’

He knows Tori wants him—hell, most women do—but she won’t admit it. After months of chasing and one unforgettable kiss, it’s time for Jamie to raise the stakes.

Jamie promises that soon Tori won’t just want him in her bed, she’ll be begging for it—and he might be right. Somehow he’s found the spot in her heart that makes her open up like never before.

Where we belong

✯✯✯✯  Steamy cookie stars

“I love you.”
“That’s all I need, baby, all I’ll ever fucking need.” 

Before starting this book we suggest you grab a fan and some wipers for your Kindle because this novells is STAAAEEEAMY with a capital S!

“I ache for you. Want you so bad I can’t fucking breathe.” 

Ben and Mia are desperately and completely in love and lust with each other and it’s impossible NOT to feel this when reading Where We Belong. Their intense love, the physical need for one another is palpable!

‘My mind loves Ben. My heart loves Ben. My body loves Ben. he’s the warmth in my blood. The roar of my pulse.’

There is nothing they wouldn’t do for their adorable children Nolan and Chase, but…well, they’re a physical couple and they NEED to get physical with one another whilst ensuring their children’s needs are met at all times.

This was a fun, steamy and at times heart-warming companion novella and served as a wonderful opportunity to be reunited with one of our favourite book couples whose banter never fails to put huge grins on our faces and whose love we feel with every beat of our hearts. 

‘Everything she feels I feel.  No one has ever loved like this.’ 

The moments with the children…..oh boy…talk about MELT OUR HEARTS! Just beautiful and we really could picture every nuance of their actions through the beauty of J Daniels words.

Fans of this series will devour this novella! On that note we can’t wait for CJ and Riley’s book!

 “I knew Reed was a freak.”

How do you spell #BookLove? Why; you spell it Alabama Summers series by J. Daniels of course. Because that’s what happened – we read and we fell in complete love and can’t stop talking about these books. We fell in love with everything. The writing is superb across the series; sexy, passionate, beautiful and incredibly emotional and raw at times. The characters; well there hasn’t been one we haven’t fallen head over heels in love with. This series boasts some of the best heroes and heroines we’ve come across in a long time. Everyone feels like close friends of ours now and they have stolen our hearts. This Author was new to us and we’ve very quickly added J. Daniels to our automatic 1Click list of Authors. After all she brought us our #BamaBoys

‘Hope is a funny thing. Even when you think you have none, it refuses to lie down quietly.’

We were so excited to start Reed’s story. We’ve followed him in the previous two books and he’s an important part of this circle of friends that include Ben & Mia – Tessa & Luke. Reed has taunted and teased us with his exploits and to say we thought his story was going to sizzle was an understatement to what actually transpired. Reed’s passion rolled off the pages as our pulses raced and our skin tingled. This man…..THIS MAN – filthy dirty talking Reed takes some beating in any room at any time, this man knows all the tricks. He does not hold back. Reed consumed us as readers – we’ve actually become as obsessed with him as we became about Ben from the first book in this series. And…guess what? He’s a construction worker; how original and refreshing. How amazingly HOT!

‘I’ve never met a man so self-possessed before. Normally, cockiness isn’t something I find charming. But with Reed, his confidence only adds to what makes him appealing.’

Reed personified power and passion. However, not only that, he was an incredible friend. A loyal compassionate man with a heart of pure gold. A man who’d been hurt so bad he had an innate desire to avoid any romantic attachments for fear of having his heart twisted and broken. That is until Beth.

“I’ve been jealous twice in my entire life. And both times have been with you. It’s confusing. I don’t know how to deal with it.”

Now, Beth is without question one of our favourite heroines of recent reads. She’s beautiful, inside-out and whilst having been dealt a rough hand she’s still smiling. She’s adorable, so entrancing, genuine and down to earth. Beth hugs her kindle – we hug our kindles – ergo this is LOVE.

‘My soul missed her, my body craved her. Sleep evaded me.’

Beth is thrust into an established group of friends but you’d never know and that is what’s also so incredibly brilliant about this series. Nothing feels forced – it flows so beautifully and naturally it’s as if we’re there with them all, following their lives with a different focus from story to story but all-encompassing of all the other characters at the same time.

‘It’s hard to imagine how bad things can be when you’ve never had everything taken away from you.’

Beth inadvertently helps Reed out one night and their journey begins; changing them forever as they make new discoveries about themselves and each other. Their intense want and need. The overwhelming desire and inability to take a breath without the presence of the other. We felt every step of their path; we laughed with them and at them – at their antics. We cried big fat tears at the emotional parts and we felt the feverish moments of animalistic passion that had us desperate for some freezer time to cool ourselves for a bit of a time-out.

‘It’s Reed’s turn to grab my face and kiss me without giving me a choice in it. It’s his turn to reach for my hand, to touch me firsts.’

Sadness and a happy discovery brought our Beth many beautiful moments, a new life – and it brought her Reed. This Author brought it all to us as she highlighted once again the beauty of friendships and love, through new eyes, whilst bringing back the loves and perfection from those past.  Perfection!

“Your voice might be my favorite sound.”

We highly recommend this series for readers who loved The Deal By Elle Kennedy!

Ben is determined to prove he’s not the same guy he used to be.

 “Little Miss Unwilling to Let Go of the Past.”

We had originally planned to start this series at Book #3 as we were told each could be read as standalone. So, we started reading When I Fall, however, by 20% we had to put it down. Why? Well, we fell in complete book love with the other characters who’d each had a book already. Hence, a book binge began as we read Where I belong and All I Want in one sitting. J Daniels is a brilliant Author; she reeled us in hook line and sinker with characters that had us swooning, laughing and ultimately ending up with a lot of freezer time. Their stories were addictive and highly entertaining. One word – unputdownable!

“Sleep, Angel. You have me. I’m never letting you go.”

Where I Belong is the story of Ben and Mia. Ladies, Ben will literally ROCK YOUR WORLD! He’s without question one of our favourite heroes out there. Incredibly sexy, a cunning linguist …holy hell he knows what to do with that filthy mouth of his. But above all; he had a side to him that’ll make your ovaries melt while you swoon over his protective side. He was perfection!

“And say what, angel? That I could kiss you for hours. That I love the taste of you on my tongue.”

As for Mia; she’s so incredibly lovable, sweet, feisty and compassionate. Their story is romantic, funny and bloody hot. It’ll satisfy all your reading needs; no question!

Yes, it was a tad predictable and insta-love, but overall we just can’t recommend this Author and this series highly enough. What a fantastic weekend we had reading!

When she looked at me, she saw me. My hopes, my fears….She fucking owned me with that stare and I never wanted to look away.’

Where I belong is a story of childhood memories; forgiveness and second chances. It’s a story of family and friendships and a love so incredibly passionate and romantic.

Oh and on a last note; you will meet one of the cutest kids out there – Nolan will melt your heart – he’s a true scene stealer!

ALL I WANT – THE ALABAMA SUMMER BOOK TWO

All I want

SYNOPSIS

Luke Evans is a heartbreaker.

I didn’t want to give mine to him. Not when he kept me out. 
He gave me enough, just enough to make me fall in love with him. I say this to convince myself. But I know the truth. 
I would’ve fallen in love with him at a distance. 
Handing my heart over to Luke was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. I was naive when I wished for more, when I hoped he wanted the same things I did. 
I try to hate him. I try to forget him. 
But it’s not that easy. 
Love is a ruthless bitch, and I’m her latest victim.

Tessa Kelly is a man-eater.

When she sets her sights on you, she doesn’t just consume your heart, she goes for your soul. 
What we had was perfect, real, and all I would ever want. 
But she destroyed it. 
She destroyed us. 
I try to hate her. I try to forget her. 
But it’s not that easy. 
Love is for people who have hope, and I have none.

Warning:
This book contains adult themes. 18+.
All I Want is a standalone novel, but to fully appreciate the f****ed-up mess that is Luke & Tessa, pick up Where I Belong first.

“Do you love me today?”

We first met Tessa the sassy, plucky no nonsense, straight talking girl in Where I Belong. She gave us a good laugh and made no apologies for who she was and we loved her character.

“I hate that I can’t hate you enough to forget you.”

The relationship between Tessa and Luke (Ben’s best friend) was touched upon in book one and the miscommunication that had become synonymous with this pair in Where We Belong is carried forward into All I Want, only this time around we gained more of an insight into what lay beneath the animosity between Luke and Tessa, the deeply guarded secrets that plagued Luke, and the reasoning behind the turn their relationship took.

‘I let her in as much as I can, and it has to be enough because that’s all I can give her.’

There’s no doubting the deep attraction between Tessa and Luke, the chemistry between them crackled and we felt the affection between them, but boy did they love to provoke one another!  Sometimes their back and forth could be entertaining, other times it could be so bloody frustrating. There was a time or two we wanted to shout….TALK TO EACH OTHER!

“Let me go.”
“I can’t.” “I can’t let you go, Tessa. Please don’t ask me to do that.”

We could never have envisaged the depth of the man beneath the fun loving, self-assured, easy going Luke we were acquainted with in book one. Little did we realise the huge emotional barriers this man had constructed as a result of his painful past. Now, whilst we understood his reluctance to let Tessa in, there were times we could have throttled him with his own handcuffs! He acted in ways that would have sent a lesser woman running to the hills. Luckily Luke didn’t bank on the tenacity of this woman!

“I love you. Those words are yours. I’ll never say them to anyone else.” 

We’re addicted to this series and it’s not just the romance factor, but also the friendship dynamics which are so important. The banter between the characters is both moving and fun, each bringing so much to the story. There are no secondary characters here, we’ve fallen in love with them all.

We really enjoyed this one, though not as much as Where I Belong. Whereas book one was sweet, sexy and romantic, All I Want was a much angstier read with two strong headed characters whose battle of wills could be as exhilarating as it could be exhausting. We’re absolutely LOVING THIS SERIES and enjoy catching up with all the characters as their stories weave throughout each book.

Once again, that little chap Nolan stole our hearts!  He never fails to put a huge smile on our faces.

If the push/pull, will they/won’t they angst gets your heart racing. If you enjoy a romance with plenty of love, wit, pure emotion and a huge (and we mean…huge) steam factor….then this book is for you!
