#Review – Swallow Me Whole by @gemmajames80

39324700

Sadie Sawyer wants to learn how to blow a guy.

She’s my sister’s best friend.
The girl I’ve known since grade school.
The girl I’ve always considered off-limits.

She’s the girl that crawled under a table in a bar one night and changed everything between us. Now the brain in my pants is more than willing to step up. The rules are simple.

No kissing.
No screwing.
No falling in love.

But the more I let her use my body in the name of experimentation, the more I know being friends isn’t enough. Is it too much to want it all with her?

The taste of her lips.
The sweetness of her innocence.
The chance to earn her love.

I might have a real shot with her…if her douchebag ex and my past don’t ruin everything.

Swallow Me Whole is a friends-to-lovers standalone romance. Full-length at 77,000 words.

MY REVIEW

Swallow Me Whole by Gemma James
Sadie & Ashton
LOOK OUT DOUGLAS FALLS
5 Stars

What an endearing and complex tale. Sometimes when you think you know where a stories going, you’re blindsided by a plot twist. So sit down, buckle up, and enjoy the ride!

Sadie is caught up trying to please all the men in her life when she should be focusing on herself. She has a cheating boyfriend, a domineering father, and a bestie who tries to push her to be her best and make decisions that aren’t necessarily for “her.”

Ashton is known to be the town “manwhore,” and doesn’t even want to think about commitment. Until an incident with Sadie leaves him with his mouth hanging open, his pants undone, and his mind and other things blown!

The supporting character cast is small but I just have to say something about Sadie’s father. This guy needs a high five in the face with a chair. Jeeze man… family first!

This is a quick read, a standalone… I know I know.. Gemma James (The Queen of Cliffys) wrote a standalone… well, she did and it was fantastic. The pacing is fast, the dialogue flowed, and the characters are comical and endearing. Loved it!

MY REVIEW

El Pecador by M. Robinson
Damien & Amira
GASPS!
5 Stars

Well, well, well… an action packed continuation of Damien’s story… I was warned, but I couldn’t help myself. I needed to find out where he went, what he was doing, and why he left our girl!

Damien is now in a position of power, prestige, and influence. He’s not as spotless as he may seem to some, but his heart is still as pure when it comes to a certain girl. I have to admit I wasn’t so sure about his intentions at first, but the objective sucked me in and, well, here I am.

Amira… holy shit.. Amira is all grown up and in charge! I love this chick! She makes being ruthless look so good. Some of her motives are questionable, but you’ll understand eventually.

The plot twists in this book alone are enough to push even the seasoned reader over the edge. I found it to be a complete page turner and I couldn’t read fast enough. The pacing is fast, the dialogue flows, and the storyline is phenomenal. The characters are powerful and I found myself hanging on every word. Now to bide my time waiting for the spin-off Lost Boy

MY REVIEW

Guilty Sin by Chelle Bliss
Ret, Alese, and Nya
DIFFERENT IS GOOD!!!
5 Stars

So this isn’t your standard “Chelle Bliss” book… oh no, it’s so much more! Chelle puts her heart and soul on these pages and leaves you with a mouthwatering tale that will keep you wanting more.

Ret and Alese were introduced to us in Top Bottom Switch(highly recommend you read this NOW). I’ve loved them from the beginning and I think I may have fallen even deeper in love with them after this. Alese is so carefree and lighthearted. Don’t get me wrong, she’ll cut your heart out with a spoon if you harm anyone she loves, but her persona is one of independence, exploration, and acceptance. Ret on the other hand is the opposed. He approaches with caution and when Nya enters the mix, he follows Alese’s lead. Good man!

Nya is all kinds of fucked up and how can she not be… she’s been mistreated, neglected, and discarded like a used condom. When she finally gets to Ret and Alese’s house, she’s stand-offish and untrusting, but pour on that Ret charm and the Alese welcoming committee and you just may have a good fit!

This book was so far my favorite in the Alfa series. Not because it’s new, but because it’s uncommon. It opens up your mind to fresh possibilities and different situations. The characters were powerful, the dialogue flows, and the pacing is perfect. Loved it!

The men at ALFA Investigations are tough as nails, all about the chase, and love playing dirty. From ruthless criminals to wild women, they’ll stop at nothing to fight the bad guys and win the girl.

Review: Knotted by Pam Godwin

KNOTTED, Book #1 in the TRAILS OF SIN series

Genre: Dark Cowboy Romance
Series: HEAs with no cliffhangers. Each book is a different couple. Must be read in order.

Amazon | Other Retailers | Goodreads

I try to forget her.
It’s impossible.

Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.
First love, first kiss, first…
Not all our firsts.

We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.

Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.

I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains.
She’s mine.

MY REVIEW

Knotted by Pam Godwin
Jake & Conor
I THINK I DIED A LITTLE ON THESE PAGES
5 Stars!

What a ride! I mean, holy hell in a hand basket… this one was unforgiving and exhilarating. Really folks, from the first chapter…THE FIRST CHAPTER I was shocked, hooked , and gearing up for 110% full on angst. I got it!

I wanted this book to go in so many directions, sometimes it did, other times it went the complete opposite and truly, I was ok with that. Julep Ranch is a place that feels like home even to me, the reader! Pam does a brilliant job (as usual) of unfolding the setting, the landscape, and the feel of emotions involved.

Conor Cassidy is a free spirited young woman who stares despair in the face and pushes past its clutches only to be thrust into another conundrum. She’s remarkable and strong, She’s honest and unique, and she’ll steal your heart, break it and put it back together again.

Jake Holsten is all in where Conor is concerned. He’s loved her his whole life and no one or thing will ultimately come between them, or so I thought. He’s honest to a fault, but has to bite his tongue to keep his girl safe.

There aren’t too many supporting characters or at least not ones I care to mention. There is of course Jarret (Jakes twin) and Lorne, Conor’s brother. These two cowboys are going to rock the pages of book 2 and book 3 and holy moly guacamole people, those books are going to be scorching.

I loved this story with my entire soul. It was captivating right away and the characters are genuine and likable and drew me in instantaneously. The dialogue flows easily and sounds natural. The storyline is irreplaceable and the pacing flawless. The tension is immediate and leads you to a path of destruction, refurbishing, love, and acceptance. What a breathtaking tale!

MY REVIEW

Kade’s Dark Embrace by Kym Grosso
Kade & Sydney
HOT AND ACTION PACKED
3.5 Stars

This one was my way back into Paranormal. I don’t read many of them these days, but this one wasn’t too bad. It has humor, sexy time, and a thick plot. I would go as far as to say it was JR Ward quality, but it still good none-the-less.

Kade is the brooding vamp sent in to assist with a case that involves paranormal activity. He’s not bossy or rude, but more like a take charge kind of guy. I liked him right away.

Sydney is working the case also, but now in a “consulting” capacity which doesn’t really sit well for a girl as tough as her. Eh, she’ll get over it!

It was a good story with good characters. The writing style was good, the dialogue flowed, and the tension was ok. The characters were likable and the pacing was pretty good. This was my first Kym Grosso book!
