Synopsis


Bon Jovi.

Bryan Adams.

Presley West.

My favourite men of music.

Only one of them within reach.

The night before Presley West was due to leave our small town of Hollings Hill, all of my high school fantasies came to life. He finally wanted me. Eight years I’d spent pining, and now I, bar-tending Tessa Lisbon, was going to make damn sure I made that night count before the music industry stole him. 

Never screw your idols. That’s what they say, right? Well, I did, and I did it well. So well, I somehow managed to screw my own heart in the process. 

He gave me one night to convince him to stay. In the end, I begged him to go. 

Forever. 

But that’s the thing about rock stars: they do what they want, when they want, and forever didn’t end up being as long as I expected.

Presley was back, and with his face, voice, and music now everywhere I turned, I officially had nowhere left to run.

My review:

I feel like Cherry Beats was written just for me. Like it’s some kind of fan fic I’d never got around to writing about Bon Jovi – even though it’s not about Bon Jovi – that Vicki had plucked out of my head. *happy sigh* And sorry, I mean, Bon “Fucking” Jovi as they’re so rightly called in the I novel. My, my, they will forevermore be known as that, now. This book just speaks to my soul!

“His voice lasers straight through our panties and plants itself over the g-spot we try to keep hidden, and then Rhett Ryan just keeps touching and touching and touching us until we explode.” – When you realise this is the perfect analogy of how Jon Bon Jovi’s singing makes you feel!

This book made my heart sing! It also broke it, too, and then made it soar again! It was beautiful! It was brilliant! It was everything my rock chick self could have asked for in a rockstar romance! Tessa, aka Cherry, had sass and wit! She was the coolest protagonist! Presley, her love interest, made me weak at the knees! Devilishly hot, unwaveringly confident and dripping with charm, with a pure heart that just wanted to be loved! Ahhh he was so dreamy! I couldn’t help but imagine him as Jon Bon Jovi, ya know, if he’d been the drummer.

I loved all references throughout the novel to bands and singers such as: Bon Jovi (obviously), Bryan Adams, Mötley Crüe and AC/DC – to name a few. Oh, and the king himself, Elvis Presley! There is also a killer playlist on Spotify to go along with this book that I listened to throughout and it made it even more special!

If you love a steamy rockstar romance then this one’s for you! This is one of the best books I’ve read this year! And Vicki James, aka Victoria L James, is right up there at the top with my fave authors!

Book Review – Playing For Keeps by A. M. Williams.

This is the first book I’ve read in the Boys of Summer series (it’s book 3 but works fine as a stand alone) and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the amazing chemistry between Emerson and Alvarez. I also loved that neither were perfect which created issues in their relationship (even before it began!) that they had to work through to get to that happy ending that we all love. This was really well written and you see the story from both Emerson and Alvarez’s points of view. The book really pulls you in to the characters feelings and their lives, making you really feel for them or want to throw a book and inwardly groan at them when they’ve put their foot in their mouth or made a dumb choice! It’s a must-read for lovers of sports romances, particularly if you love baseball!

Playing For Keeps is available to buy from Amazon UK and Amazon US. Grab your copy today!

Note: This book was an ARC gifted in return for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

Title: Playing for Keeps
Author: A.M. Williams


Series: Boys of Summer; Book 2

Alvarez loves ladies, but only for one night at a time. He hasn’t met a woman that he can’t get to come to bed with him or that he wants to stick around. That is … until he meets Emerson and realizes that he just might have met his match.

Her Best Friend’s Brother Cover Reveal

 

I’m so excited to share this cover.

Her Best Friend’s Brother is a second chance romance that is due for release on 20 September 2019.

The Blurb:

Six years ago, Lucy Duncan and Jenson Phillips shared a moment on the beach. For years she had a crush on him, but hid it behind a mask of hating him, then… nothing. Now, they’re about to go on a three-thousand mile road trip together to his sister’s, Lucy’s best friend, wedding; the sister who knows nothing about their ‘history’.

If Lucy’s boyfriend Matthew had been able to make the trip with her, she wouldn’t have had to put up with Jenson’s arrogance and secretive phone calls. If Matthew didn’t always put his career before Lucy herself, then maybe she wouldn’t be reliving that one night with astounding clarity while being trapped in an old car with Jenson, the one guy she’d never truly forgotten.

Her Best Friend’s Brother is a second chance romance that will leave you wanting more.

Book Review – Down Fall by Abigail Davies.

Blurb:

“Life was chaotic and unpredictable; made up of a series of events—a collection of firsts.
First crush.
First kiss.
First love.

Between the murky waters, I’d found salvation. And it was all because of him—the broody alpha who appeared at the time I needed him most.
He promised me things, and showed me the life I could have.
But all it took was one moment to destroy everything.

Nothing else mattered.
No one else mattered.
It was him and me against the world.
Until it wasn’t.

I hadn’t known just how forbidden our love was.
I hadn’t known I’d been tutoring his son.
I hadn’t known about the family he had hidden away. 
I hadn’t known he was cheating—with me.

I wish I could say I wanted to take it all back, but it’d be a lie.
A blatant lie. 

He was my biggest downfall, but I’d never regret it.
Choosing him was never an option, the question was whether he’d risk it all.”

This is the second part in the Fallen Duet series and boy is it as equally amazing as the first!

Once again you’re sucked into the lives of Lola and Brody and taken on an incredible emotional rollercoaster of a ride! Abigail Davies really knows how to make you feel exactly the way her characters do and has a way of bringing her characters to life. Another beautifully written book that had me on the edge of my seat most of the time; be that either because I was fanning myself over the steaminess between Lola and Brody (psst! There’s a lot more in the first book, by the way! You should go check that out!), the heartfelt scenes where I didn’t know how Brody was gonna react to Lola’s life changing news, or feeling crap scared for their lives! Like I said: emotional rollercoaster! Jesus, my heart was definitely in my mouth at least twice that’s for sure! So if you like angsty, edge of your seat, finger nail biting contemporary romance mixed in with some crime fighting DEA agents, then this is for you!

About the Author

Abigail Davies grew up with a passion for words, storytelling, maths, and anything pink. Dreaming up characters–quite literally–and talking to them out loud is a daily occurrence for her. She finds it fascinating how a whole world can be built with words alone, and how everyone reads and interprets a story differently. Now following her dreams of writing, Abigail has found the passion that she always knew was there. When she’s not writing: she’s a mother to two daughters who she encourages to use their imagination as she believes that it’s a magical thing, or getting lost in a good book. If she’s doing neither of those things, you can be sure she’s surfing the web buying new makeup, clothes, or binge watching another show as she becomes one with her sofa.

Blog: Stress and the Epidemic of Schizophrenia

My heart broke a little reading this. Allie is such an inspiration and I admire her so much for writing such an honest and raw post.

Allie Burke

Trigger warning: schizophrenia and suicide

I hate the 4thof July, I’m sorry, but I do, I hate it. 

I have had pets all my life—they have served as my companions and my therapy for as long as I can remember—and every year I dread this day. When there will be loud noises in the sky that will terrify my animals, and me. 

I have paranoid schizophrenia. Loud noises are very difficult for me; they always have been. My stepfather used to scream at my mother, and that’s part of it. The other part is that as someone who visually and audibly hallucinates, surprise noises scare me because I don’t always know if other people can hear them, or it’s just me. I can go to concerts, because I’m expecting it to be loud. Same thing with car races, but I will admit when the cars backfires I panic…
