Joe Football by Autumn Sand – Review by Jenni Bishop

Joe FootballJoe Football by Autumn Sand
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Favor was surrounded by football all her life. When your father is a big name in the sport and it is in you face 24/7 you either love it or hate it. Favor absolutely detests football and anything to do with football that includes players. As the story unfolds you will quickly learn why and you will understand why. But when a hottie comes on her radar will he be enough to change her mind? He is everything she wants in a guy but can she get past the fact that he is a football player?

Brice is a football player but he definitely is not your typical arrogant player. He is liked by all and is a really decent guy. Brice has had his eye on one Ms Favor Fontaine from afar and after a year he has finally decided to make his move. The trouble is she won’t give him the time of day. All because he plays football, but why? Unfortunately for him she has built walls around her heart and and no one can get past them. Will Brice be the one who can finally break down those walls and show Favor he is more than a football player? Can he show her that he is he one she can trust?

Brice is my man! The romance and relationship between Brice and Favor is beautiful. There are moments when you were laughing at the antics of the group of friends. Times when I wanted to seriously slap some sense into some of the men in this story There is also love and sadness, drama and betrayal. Autumn once again has written a story that you will not want to miss, with enough going on to keep you hooked right to the very end. The characters are well written, well developed and that is one thing Autumn does well. Happy reading…..

Mayhem (A Twisted Hearts Love Story Book 2) by Autumn Sand

5 Amazingly Awesome Stars

Cyma is trying to hold down two jobs while still being a good Mom to her daughter who has many medical issues. With mounting medical bills, and loan payments to a terrible man, she does her best to avoid her landlord who wants his 4 months back rent. She’s sold all she can to make ends meet and just can’t catch a break. With her past causing her to trust no man and a very low self esteem, she just does her best to survive on her own. When she ends up in a very scary situation and a sexy stranger saves her she runs away as fast as she can, that’s the last thing she needs right now.

Dante ran away 10 years ago and enlisted to escape the pain of a life altering tragic loss which still haunts his dreams 10 years later. He returned 6 years ago and is now the right hand man of a mob boss who is trying to take all his businesses legal. He lives with a lot of guilt because of his losses and doesn’t feel deserving of any kind of relationship, he has even distanced himself from his loving supportive parents. All he needs is his job, money, and the right to spoil his Godson. Until he hears the cries of a woman in trouble and his need to protect her kicks in.

Dante sets out to find this woman that has stirred up feelings he never thought he could have again, and although Cyma feels like Dante could be everything opposite of what she believes about men she keeps pushing him away, she has to protect her daughter at all costs. Can these two break through the barriers that they both have set and find a happily ever after even while outside forces do all they can to destroy them?

I so so so loved this book!! This author knows how to tell a story that feels so real. Every word meant something and the story flowed perfectly. It had me wrapped while reading the prologue and I think I even quit breathing during some of it. This is my first book by this author so although part of a series I never felt lost and I plan to read the first in this series as soon as possible, as well as whatever else she has out there. She is now on my favorite author and one click list. Loved it!!!

Mayhem (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #2)Mayhem by Autumn Sand
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tick lost everything that sent him into a spiral the only way out was to leave it all behind but for the life of him he could never forget, he didn’t want to forget. Tick is the right hand man to Tony Delaney, boss of the mob, a man he would give his life for, this man was his family. He has everything he needs. Woman with no relationships, the occasional hook up is all he needs to satisfy is basic needs. Money and power go hand in hand. He is a good guy but has done some bad things, things that had to be done. One thing he never suspected would worm its way into his life and change it all. After hearing screams Tick finds himself driven with a primal need to protect, to save with everything in his being.

Cyma was taught at a young age that life is not full of roses. In fact it is full of pain, misery, disappointment and most of all pain. Happily ever after does not exist, at least in her world and certainly not from the men who were suppose to love and protect her. No in her life she has one thing and one thing only to live for in this world and that is her beautiful and strong daughter, Lelia. Lelia is her life and no one nor anything will touch her, she will fight with all her might to make that happen. Cyma finds herself being saved by one gorgeous and sexy man that threatens to turn her world upside down but she can’t go there, too much is at stake, she has too much to deal with and fight for. When this man shows her his true feelings she is left reeling, not knowing which way to turn.

Can Cyma give this man a chance? Can she safeguard not only herself but her daughter as well? Will Tick risk everything for the one thing he wants? Is the risk worth the reward? Will Cyma finally find a new way of life?

I felt for the main characters, Tick and Cyma. They both have had to endure heartache. This story is full of emotions that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I really enjoyed it. I am sure you will enjoy it to.

Bedlam (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #1) by Autumn Sand – Review by Jana Teppih

Bedlam (A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #1)Bedlam by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bedlam is the first book in Autumn Sands Twisted Hearts Love Story series. It is a great read and I am looking forward to the next book (hopefully the writer will not keep us waiting too long!).
It is a very emotional and painful book that pulled me in from the first page – the way Autumn writes, it creates images in your head and you ‘watch’ the book while reading it. It is both a blessing and a curse, in Bedlam’s case the curse is that the writer touches upon many important and painful issues such as impact of having grown up in foster care as a child of addicts, domestic violence, abuse, rape … I cried, a lot but I think that shows how well the book was written as how could something that deals with such serious matters be light and funny? No way!
The protagonists of the first book are Anaya and Tony and the antagonist is Ignacio. There are couple of other great ‘supporting’ characters and I hope some of them get their own story (actually I do know that Trick gets his story next!). There are a few surprising twists that I did not see coming but of course when they were revealed, I went like “duh, how did I not see it coming!” The story keeps you guessing and I personally could not put the book down until I had finished it so be warned! I recommend the book and wish you great hours filled with great writing!
