SALE: Take This Regret (Take This Regret #1) by A.L. Jackson is Only 99¢ until 12/7

TTR on sale  

There are some mistakes we make that we will regret for the rest of our lives. For Christian, it was the day he betrayed Elizabeth. Christian Davison has a plan for his life. He is determined to become an attorney and to one day take his place as partner in his father's law firm. Nothing will stand in his way, not even Elizabeth Ayers and their unborn child. After Christian cuts her from his life, Elizabeth spends the next five years struggling to provide for her daughter and willing to sacrifice anything to give her child a safe, comfortable life. For five years, Christian has regretted the day he walked away from his family and will do anything to win them back just as Elizabeth will do anything to protect her daughter from the certain heartache she believes Christian will bring upon them. When Christian wrestles his way into their lives, Elizabeth is faced with asking herself if it is possible to forgive someone when they've committed the unforgiveable and if it is possible to find a love after it has been buried in years of hate. Or are there some wounds that go so deep they can never heal? They say everyone deserves a second chance.

People come into our lives. Some stay, and many go. Some build us up, while most tear us down. They become our friends, our enemies, our lovers, our tormentors. 

Christian Davison came into mine, and I knew I’d never be the same. 

To Elizabeth Ayers, New York City had always been a dream. She’s worked her entire young life to make it here.

Groomed to one day take over his father’s law firm, attending Columbia University was Christian Davison’s only option. 

Neither wanted anything more until they sat across from each other at a café table after being paired as study partners.

Christian wants her, but Elizabeth knows better than to give into their intense attraction. Yet there is little she can do to stay away. 

Lost to You, the prequel to the bestselling romance, Take This Regret. A New Adult novella, recommended for readers 17+. It’s unnecessary to have read Take This Regret to enjoy Lost to You.

If Forever Comes, the final chapter in the New York Times Bestselling The Regret Series. 

Christian Davison’s life is complete. With a ring on Elizabeth’s finger and his daughter at his side, he’s ready to run headlong into their future.

Elizabeth Ayers never believed she would again find this kind of joy—the joy of a family and the wholeness found in the touch of the man she’s always loved.

Their love is intense and their passion only grows as they set out to rediscover each other.

But life is never easy.

Rocked by the unforeseen, Christian and Elizabeth will find themselves fighting for the one thing they hold most important—family.

REVIEW: The Hook Up (Game On #1) by Kristen Callihan **GIVEAWAY**

The rules: no kissing on the mouth, no staying the night, no telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love.

Anna Jones just wants to finish college and figure out her life. Falling for star quarterback Drew Baylor is certainly not on her to do list. Confident and charming, he lives in the limelight and is way too gorgeous for his own good. If only she could ignore his heated stares and stop thinking about doing hot and dirty things with him. Easy right?

Too bad he’s committed to making her break every rule…

Football has been good to Drew. It’s given him recognition, two National Championships, and the Heisman. But what he really craves is sexy yet prickly Anna Jones. Her cutting humor and blatant disregard for his fame turns him on like nothing else. But there’s one problem: she's shut him down. Completely.

That is until a chance encounter leads to the hottest sex of their lives, along with the possibility of something great. Unfortunately, Anna wants it to remain a hook up. Now it’s up to Drew to tempt her with more: more sex, more satisfaction, more time with him. Until she’s truly hooked. It's a good thing Drew knows all about winning.

All’s fair in love and football…Game on.

New Adult/Contemporary Romance with a HEA - Recommended for readers 17 and older.

5 Blow Me Away Stars

Wow just wow! I read a lot of erotica and to be honest its not always out of choice but you know I kind of end up falling into those reads which I love. Recently I was in the need to a NA college romance/Sports Romance, I mean this is one of my go to genres when I want to go back to college to remember KWIM?? I'm a 34 wife/mum so its not something I read all the time just occasionally. Saying that, please don't judge this book by its cover which I kind of did a few months back when I first cast my eyes on it. I was in the need of a sports romance themed story and BAM here I am blown away by this book. The words and thoughts of these characters were just so mature I honestly was hooked from page one.

Anyway I digress...

Drews Mum once told him that...

Life, She insisted, is how you live it and who you live it with, not what you do to make a living.

"You'll see, Drew. One day, Love will creep up and smack you upside the head. Then you'll understand."

You see Drew is a football player he is the main one, the one everyone wants to see the 'ONE' everyone wants. But hey that doesn't mean he's happy, then one day he see's one girl this girl namely Anna Jones is then ALL he see's but she's a nothing in her eyes, a small fish in a big pond concerning Drew in her eyes. Here we have two people who are moving forward in their lives but not necessarily enjoying what they have cause they have a big whole to fill.

Drew has his team and he's happy he works extremely hard, he trains he plays and he studies but he doesn't drink and he watches out for his boys so when his eyes meet Anna HE WANTS HER FOR HIM.

You know there's that moment when you need and want its definitely the case for Drew the only thing is Anna rebels and may want him back but won't admit it so there are rules and they go like this:

No kissing on the mouth, No staying the night, No telling anyone, and above all… No falling in love.

So can Drew break that rule and turn Anna around to his thinking??

Anna Jones doesn't know what she wants to do with her life she's at college and all but the only thing she would like is to be in New York, She lives with her friend and enjoys her little life of contentment studying, working but after a not great break up in her past she doesn't do relationships she doesn't want the feelings that go with it nor has she been out recently that is until her friends get her out where she bumps into Drew and where they start their Hook Up now I'm not going to tell you much more about the story just lets say emotions obviously get involved and its time to take a chance when you just know right??

My Thoughts
Here I am sitting trying the fathom the right words to express how much joy this book gave me, its has the sweet romance and getting to know you feel and then there's the whole I NEED YOU NOW feel, friendship, love and sex its all there, there chemisty was off the charts and majority of this read I was panting in my seat and wondering whats going to happen next I never got bored of it too, really this NA was not inappropriate or unrealistic the maturity of the story gripped me and I was thinking about it throughout the day which to means a good story to me.

I loved how it was a gradual process I say mature again cause this really is a LOVE STORY TO ITS CORE

I was asked yesterday if this story was generic and I suppose yes it is but please don't let that put you off, I enjoyed it for what it is. Don't expect lots of plot twists but if your in the mood then please grab it.

To Sum Up
The author did a great job at building the tension at the beginning and making me smile at the end Job well done Kristen I'll be awaiting for Grays book coming next.....

Read it, that is all.....

5 Drew Baylor can Rock My World Any Day Stars!! 

This is my two cents on this book:
I loved it!! This story satisfied my smut-lovin' & sports romance fix! I had the biggest book hangover when I finished. I'm sooooo looking forward to Gray's story next. JUST READ IT!!

REVIEW & BOOK BLITZ: Leo Maddox by Sarah Darlington **GIVEAWAY**

Genre: New Adult Romance

The one. The only. Leo Maddox.

Leo’s cocky. He’s mean. He’s gorgeous. He’s never learned the meaning of the word no. He’s the twenty-one-year-old, billionaire grandson of a hotel mogul. He has vacation homes he’s never been to and cars he doesn’t drive. Women. Fashion. Alcohol. There’s nothing he can’t get. Well…almost nothing.

He can’t have her. The girl he loves. The girl he’s loved his entire life. She hates him. Until one morning when Leo wakes up and decides enough is enough. He’s going to get the only girl he’s ever wanted. So what if she has a new boyfriend. So what if she loathes his very existence. Clara belongs with him and he’s going to prove it to her by winning her heart.

*This New Adult Romance is told entirely from Leo Maddox’s POV. It can be read before, after, or in place of Sarah Darlington's stand alone novel He Belongs With Me. Recommended for readers 18+ due to strong language and sexy scenes.

4 Sexy Stars

A sweet sexy read between two ex-friends to lovers. I have read one of Sarah's books previously and this one is know different, a joy and gives you a happy smile at the end.

So what's it about?
Leo Maddox has money, and lots of it he's polished works hard and smiles when he needs to and answers to his father but he isn't happy, when he was a younger man than he I now his mother disappeared not handling the loss of her best friend and Clara and Maggie's mum so she ran and left Leo and her husband behind with no thought to Leo and his feelings whereas Leos dad may be cold and goal/money oriented therefore alone but Leo is no way like that inside.

Leo's best friend is Maggie-Cara's twin sister and they may be identical in looks but no-way are the same inside whereas Maggie is calm nurturing and caring, watching out for the people around her and not making fights with people namely Leo Clara does and Clara is the feisty one and the one that clash's with Leo maybe in the best ways but maybe not also.

Clara is hurting and is always fighting with Leo there is banter but there is also hurt and pain underneath those layers and walls that she has put up so the likes of Leo and maybe even her sister can't get inside until now.

The thing is once those layers start to come down there's a sweet lady underneath who loves Leo the way he loves her, this is there story of coming together. I will say don't expect lots of plot twists but this is definitely a happy go lucky read, sweet tender moments, friendship, past and present moments.

Leo Maddox
I would explain Leo as polished, a millionaire who takes care of his loved ones, takes pride in his appearance but at the same is willing to change to become his true self with the people he needs to impress. Caring, loving and goes after Clara once he knows what he wants. Dark hair, gorgeous eyes and a true friend and family man to the family he has known his whole life.

Feisty, rebellious, hidden but soft and sweet underneath. Blonde hair naturally but likes to change from time to time. A twin and the other half to Leos soul but at the same time the twin to Maggie.

My Thoughts
Its always a joy to read Sarah's books and that is exactly how I would explain my experience in reading Leo cause he has the qualities I love to read when reading sweet reads like this one. The writing flowed well and I grabbed hold of the story from page 1.
