Sharing His Nanny (Forever Our Girl, #2)Sharing His Nanny by Tori Chase
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! I don’t know what I was expecting, but I was thoroughly unprepared for what this book contained. Stella is a hardworking, young, badass woman who is just about to start her own empowering clothing line for plus size women like her. When things don’t work out how she has planned, she calls the one person she hopes can help her out, her step mother. Turns out, her step mother had a proposition for her Stella just couldn’t turn down. When Stella finds herself in a vacation home with her step brother (her first crush), his two player friends, and his baby, she is unable to resist having a good time. This book has very steamy scenes, adorable baby scenes, and a mix of everything in between! This is not just a book with good writing, but it also has plot twists and storylines that keep you committed to the very end.

Married Blind (King of Screen Book 2) by Morgana Bevan – Review by Kayla Octaviano

Married Blind (Kings of Screen, #2)Married Blind by Morgana Bevan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I read the synopsis for this book, I thought it was going to be a bit cheesy. A famous star joins a reality tv show to marry a non-famous, random girl he’s never met before. I did not account for how great this book was written! It’s so entertaining! There’s comedy, friendship, spite, sorrow, pain, and acceptance. There are so many layers to this story, and I loved it from beginning to end. I couldn’t put it down, but I also wanted it to last longer. Read this book, there is something in it for everyone. And read it with the accents, so much better!!!

“Jack” and “Nolan” meet at a bar, like most people do. They both expect a fun time to help them forget their real responsibilities and roles in life. Turns out, that’s impossible.

Joker’s Fool (Satan’s Devils MC #8) Audiobook by Manda Mellett – Review by Kayla Octaviano

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Loved this book! Full of feelings and understanding. If you’ve been following this series, this book is organized differently from the rest. Joker is a member of the Satan’s Devils Vegas chapter, then he transfers to the Tucson chapter.. This is his new family. What they don’t know, is that his own family has shunned him and despised him into seeking acceptance anywhere else but at home. Joker hides his true self because he has been convinced that he is an abomination. Lady’s Man is new to the Satan’s Devils MC. And Joker hates his guts. He’s never done anything to make him dislike him, so he’s concerned. Lady’s Man doesn’t know that he is Joker’s only chance at being able to accept who he is and possibly learn to love himself. Read this book, it changed my perspective and made me understand love in more clarity. This book has aggressive moments, parts where people fall apart, and times where they are put back together.

Stone Sober (Hawke Family #3)Stone Sober by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Stone is one of the younger family members in the Hawke family, but he is definitely the most rebellious. He has his own mind, and in this book, it helps us understand how far he is willing to go to be different from everybody else, and to satisfy his own wants and needs. Read this book if you like to be on the edge of your seat, like steamy scenes, and don’t mind holding your breath when things get dicey.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Amazing! Heartfelt, heartbreaking, and heartwarming all in one! Adrik is a loyal Popov boyveik, or soldier, and he has been for a long time. It’s the only place he ever felt accepted because of his facial deformities. He is known as the beast. From the moment he saw Annika Popov, the granddaughter of the Popov mafia leader, he knew he needed to get to know her. But she was off limits, and he wanted to shield her from having to see his deformed face. This is a love story, but it’s also a family story. The Popov family is strong and wealthy, and they worked very hard to be in that position. Adrik’s family, and family trauma, are nothing like the Popovs. Sadly, his past comes back to haunt him. Read this book if you love suspense, betrayal, family loyalty, and fighting for someone you love.

This is a crazy story! Many twists and turns, very cynical, but extremely entertaining to listen to. It kept me on edge the entire time.

Ever wonder how an MC prez becomes an MC prez? Well this is the first book I’ve read like this, and I loved it! Red is a young man whose life wasn’t easy.

He settled into Tucson where he joins the Satan’s Devils MC and finds where he belongs. Before long, he’s moved around again, and eventually makes his way to prez of the Vegas chapter! Read this book, it’s not like any of the others in the series (that I’ve read so far), but it’s just as amazing! It’s suspenseful, addicting, and, of course, one of a kind. There is love, loss, respect, and deception. Red’s life is a fun one to follow.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

El is a rock stars’s stepdaughter, so she understands the press and the spotlight. Her parents have never wanted that for her, but all she wants is to be her own artist and sing her own music. Nobody understands how music speaks to El, until she meets Wil. Wil comes from a poorer childhood, but happy nonetheless. He doesn’t feel like he’s missed out on anything living with his mom and grandfather. But when Wil’s mom gets sick, he understands he has to do anything to make sure she is taken care of. Meeting El was not an accident, but falling for her… Read this book and see how the story turns out. It holds love, friendship, trust, and betrayal, but can they find their way through it all? The story is stretched out perfectly, just the right amount of time between plot changes, and relationship changes. The author did an amazing job with this book and I look forward to reading more books of hers!

The Author did not disappoint! Rock Bottom is about Rock, a member of the Satan’s Devils motorcycle club, and Becca, a good church girl. From the beginning, this book captures your attention. There is action, betrayal, deception, and so much more in this book that hooks you. Read this book if you like love stories, being on the edge of your seat, action adventures, and steamy behind-closed-doors scenes. Rock Bottom was unique from the other books in this series so far because the action and adventure is the first thing to occur. If anything, this made me listen continuously, I couldn’t stop.

The author does a great job of looking at everything from everyone’s perspective, because in the end, Mavis’ decision affected everyone, and everybody deserves their say.
