The Slip Series Collection by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Melissa Agena

The Slip Series CollectionThe Slip Series Collection by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Comedy and Romance at its finest! The Slip Series Collection is written by Gwyn McNamee and let me tell you it’s fantastic! You can read all of these individually but I would read them in order because the main characters come from the previous books. Now, let’s start with the first one. Dick Slip. Yes, that’s the name of the first book and yes, that’s exactly what happens in this book. Rafe is a TV personality for a children’s show about bones and fossils. Andy is the new CEO of the network. During a televised charity basketball game Rafe had a “wardrobe malfunction.” However, when these two meet…sparks fly and hooking up was inevitable even though they fought it for a while seeing as though it was against company policy. Book 2 is Nip Slip. Yes, once again that’s the name and that’s exactly what happens. LOL! Apparently, wardrobe malfunctions runs in the family and this time it’s Rafe’s twin sister Riley. Riley is a fashion model who has been given her biggest chance of her career and right at the peak of it…oops! Tate is the editor of Haute magazine. He is also a former model and was front and center for Riley’s perfect moment. However, the designer that Riley was modeling for wasn’t very understanding. Tate saw that and wants to expose him and wants Riley to help with that. Not to mention he wants Riley too! Now, the third book in this collection is Beaver Blunder. Yep! You guessed it! It is totally what you are thinking! Miss Madeline is Riley’s best friend and on her way to court one day she slipped and fell and whoops there goes her skirt! Who’s there to save her? Tate’s best friend and lawyer, Owen. Madeline is a pistol all by herself and Owen is so intrigued by it! Can Owen beat a badass litigator? This series is full of laughter, steamy hot sex and tons of romance! I give it two thumbs up and would recommend it to EVERYONE!

Back in the RingBack in the Ring by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Where can I find a Noah?! He’s seriously the perfect man! Too bad he exists in this book that is definitely a must read! Back in the Ring is the 4th book in the Predator Series by Brooke May. It is a part of a series but can be read as a standalone. I have not read the first 3 but after reading this book I’m more than definitely going back to read them! Bijou had lost her husband 8 years ago and runs a youth center in her small town in Georgia. Noah lost his wife to a tragic accident a year ago and moved to the same town as Bijou. However, Noah is also a World Heavy Weight Champion Boxer and so was his wife. Both Bijou and Noah know what its like to lose someone that they truly loved. They both have children, which become their common ground and with the help of Bijou’s crazy best friend these two unite and learn what it’s like to love again. I loved all the characters in this book and I seriously cannot wait to read the other books and any books to come in this series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK! Hazed is the first book in the Hazed Series by Brittany Butler. This story follows Taylor Thompson in her journey to become her own person. Coming from a home where her father is a preacher and didn’t allow her to do anything on her own terms, Taylor moved an hour away to go to college so that she can become someone completely different.

He has his own set of problems with his own father. He’s never wanted a relationship until he met Taylor. Now he wants it all…with her. This is such an emotional rollercoaster. So many twists and turns that you won’t expect. And of course…a cliff hanger! So yes, I cannot wait for the next book to come out! I love the characters in this book and I love the interactions between all the characters. This is really a great story! Definitely a book that I would recommend.

LOST IN LOVE (THE MISS APPLE PANTS SERIES, BOOK 2) BY CHARLOTTE ROTH – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Lost in Love: Miss Apple Pants (#2)Lost in Love: Miss Apple Pants by Charlotte Roth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So Adorable!  Lost In Love is the second book in The Miss Apple Pants Series by Charlotte Roth. In this book we follow Ella through a series of events of love and life. This book starts a few years after the first one. Ella has learned to grow up fast and since the first book she has grown even more and it was a pleasure to read. Her father decides to take a trip to Europe and Ella doesn’t know what she needs to do. Following your heart is not an easy task and it’s especially hard for Ella. Who does she need to go after? Her former love or risk something with a new one? Her heart is completely on the line and she doesn’t want to be heartbroken again. This book is super cute and light hearted it’s also so incredibly relatable in the sense that all women go through the ups and downs of love and life. I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys relating and learning from others. I really enjoyed this book and hope to read another one.

The Inheritance: The Story of an Unlikely Submissive by India Kells – Review by Melissa Agena

The InheritanceThe Inheritance by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had no idea what to expect from this book but I liked it. The Inheritance: The Story of an Unlikely Submissive is written by India Kells. This story follows Lani Mackay. She loses the only relative she has left, her uncle. Her uncle Emile Mackay was a bastard and wouldn’t help her financially even though he had plenty to spare because she decided to pursue her passion instead of get a regular 9 to 5 job. However, he did put her in his will and advised that she must complete some tasks before she is allowed her inheritance. These tasks must be approved by an old associate named Max Langdon. She was able to convince Max to take this on but she didn’t know what to expect. Turns out Max is a Dominant. Even though Max is quite a bit older than her she learns to submit to him. This book is really quick but super hot! I loved this book and could not put it down! Lani is feisty and strong willed. Max is closed off and stubborn. These two together have an amazing connection. I can’t wait to read more from this author!

LITTLE DO YOU KNOW (BAYOU DEVILS MC, #5) BY A.M. MYERS – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Little Do You Know (Bayou Devils MC 5)Little Do You Know by A.M. Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series just keeps getting better and better! Little Do You Know is Book 5 in the Bayou Devils MC series by A.M. Myers. Noah “Hennesey” LeBlanc has been in love with Kady Sinclair since they were 11 years old. They had been planning on getting married and starting a family when Noah got sent to prison for 6 years. When Noah gets out, his only mission is to find Kady because she seems to be missing and continue where they left off 6 years prior. One problem though…Kady is nowhere to be found. However, leave it up to the MC to find her! When he finds her, Kady doesn’t want anything to do with him. There is a reason why she doesn’t want him but you will have to read this book to find out! LOL. The chemistry between the two of them is sizzling and way off the charts. They love to fight with each other, which is funny and super sexy at the same time! The sexy scenes are downright hot! But this book is an emotional rollercoaster, so break out the tissues and have them waiting for you! You can read this book as a standalone, however, like all series I suggest reading from book one. I absolutely adore this series and I cannot wait for the next one! This is a definite plus in my book and would not hesitate to recommend this series to anyone who likes books on Motorcycle Clubs or even just a good series!

FEATHERS – A NOVEL BY KYLIE STEWART – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Feathers - A NovelFeathers – A Novel by Kylie Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an absolute fairy tale! I adored this book! Feathers is written by Kylie Stewart and is a standalone, although I would love to hear the other girl’s stories (Hint Hint). Feathers follows a young Charlotte “Lottie” from the time that she was taken by her mother’s boyfriend and sold to ungodly men. There she goes through things that most people would never imagine to a young girl. Then she is sold one more time, to Mrs. Ames. Mrs. Ames was her savior. There she meets Mrs. Ames’ grandson, Hawk McLean. Hawk is 7 years older than Lottie. But for some strange reason, he is drawn to her. In the same token, Lottie is also drawn to him. Throughout the years, Lottie learns to heal and learns to take her life back. Hawk has his own past that he has to deal with and his uncertainty about Lottie. These two get incredibly close throughout the years even though Hawk leaves for his internship and then moves to open a business. But when Lottie is 22 everything falls into place for the both of them and let me tell you, fireworks happen! I love this author and every book that I have read from her is fantastic. This book in particular gives you those wonderful good feelings because these two deserve everything that they received and it would be heartbreaking if it was any different. The characters are wonderful and Lottie is such a strong girl, it kind of makes you proud. I can’t wait to read more from Kylie Stewart!

SHATTERED LOVE (The Forever Us Series, #1) BY NIVIA BORELL – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Shattered LoveShattered Love by Nivia Borell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Such a complex book! Book one in the Forever Us Series by Nivia Borell is Shattered Love. This book was written with such great poise and descriptive manner. This author really takes you on a journey of deep feeling and emotion. Shattered Love follows Bria du Mont on her 25th birthday and the encounters of the past. Bria was meant for Damien du Sky. From the time that they were little, they were tied by such a great bond. That bond being an immense forever kind of love. One that they thought was impenetrable. But on the night of her 18th birthday the unspeakable happens, which destroys everything they are about. Damien catches Bria in bed with another man. However, Bria doesn’t remember it happening at all. At that point, Bria goes into the hospital from a heart attack. Damien finds himself in a bottle and the chase to be the very best CEO. For the next 7 years Bria drowns herself in work and finds herself incapable of having any feelings whatsoever. So she starts planning to disappear so that she can no longer hurt the ones that she loves any longer. Like I said before, this book is complex and has so many facets to go along with it. It’s a book that you need to pay attention, otherwise you will miss something. Good news is that the writing envelops you and you can’t seem to pull yourself out because you keep wanting more and more. I can’t wait for the next in the series!
