Series I Loved: The Crow Brothers

I used my time wisely over this past long weekend and binge read The Crow Brothers series by S.L. Scott.  This is a steamy four book series that can be read as standalone, but really, why would you? The entire four book set is available as a boxed set on Kindle Unlimited so it only counts as one check out.  These brothers (and Dave) rock hard and love even harder. I loved the course the series took, starting from playing local bars in Austin to superstardom, all while balancing love and family. Each has an entirely separate plot line so it doesn’t feel like one super long book. The books have characters from S.L. Scott’s Hard to Resist series, which I have not read (yet) but it’s always fun to revisit beloved characters if you have.

Starting with Spark, we get to know the oldest Crow Brother, Jet.  Jet’s always felt responsible for his family, and that’s no different when a former one night stands shows up to tell him he has a six year old son he never knew about.  Hannah is seeking custody of her cousin’s son, and has been lead to believe Jet had no interest in the child. Jet is not the kind of guy who would ignore his responsibilities- or the one night stand he never got over.  Can Jet and Hannah overcome their troubled pasts to become a family? This is a sweet story about how families can be chosen, instead of born.

Next up with Tulsa, the youngest Crow Brother finds that love happens when you least expect it.  Tulsa is happy spending the night with a different girl in each city. He’s young, handsome, and enjoying his rise to fame alongside his brothers on their first major tour opening for a legendary rock band.  He finds himself immediately attracted to the lead singer of a fellow opening act band, Nikki. Nikki does not put up with his shit, which I appreciated. They find themselves growing closer together as the tour progresses, despite constant warnings to not ruin the tour. Will they overcome their initial impressions of each other, and the opinions of their fellow tour mates?

Third comes Rivers, the middle Crow Brother’s second chance romance. Rivers has loved Stella since he was 15 years old, but a misunderstanding broke them apart five years ago. He has tried to get over her, but after seeing his brothers fall in love he realizes he has had true love and nothing else will do. Can Rivers and Stella overcome their trouble pasts?  This one took kind of a turn from the first two, and had more action and drama instead of just romance. The thriller aspects felt mildly out of place when you’re binging the series, but if you’re reading it as a stand alone it probably reads just fine.

Finally, with Ridge, we learn more about the non-Crow in the The Crow Brothers Band, Dave. Dave is known as Ridge to his fans and fellow bandmates, but he’s more interested in the woman who knows him as Dave, his on and off fling Meadow.  He’d love much more than a fling, but Meadow needs to prove she can stand on her own before she’d be willing to combine their lives. Will she overcome her issues to realize that loving someone doesn’t mean she has to give up herself? There were times I wanted to shake some sense into Meadow, but she is only 22 and it’s reasonable not to want to settle down while you’re still in college, even if it is with the perfect man.  

That Forever Girl- Cover Reveal!

Here’s the cover for Meghan Quinn’s upcoming That Forever Girl. It managed to be smoking hot despite the snowy landscape!

USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn’s second book in the Getting Lucky series brings heart, humor, and heat back to Port Snow.

There are two little words every small-town man dreads:

She’s back.

Harper Sanders, the girl who was supposed to be my forever, has returned to Port Snow, Maine, for good—and she’s bringing back memories of our shared past.

We once had a bright future together, but when tragedy struck, I threw it all away and pushed her out of my life. People in our small town think I’m cursed, but I know better. I did it all to myself.

And now she’s creating a life of her own in the place where we first fell in love. I can’t fight my feelings for her—or the strong attraction that keeps pulling us together. But after all this time, can she forgive the past and fall in love with me all over again?

Everyone hopes to find that forever girl…I just hope I haven’t lost mine for good.

My Life In Shambles- Karina Halle

Ohhhhh my I loved this! Karina’s one of my favorite authors and Ireland’s one of my favorite places so I knew this book was gonna be good for me. And I was right! It’s sexy, emotional, dramatic, funny, and also did I say sexy?

Karina has a way of really bringing you into the moment and I felt all the emotions. Even when I wanted to shake Padraig for being a jerk, I never disliked him. Valerie’s warmth and optimism were wonderful and engaging.

A lot of the topics in this book were quite heavy, and I felt they were covered with a sensitive hand. Although there was a bit of angst just due to the topics, it wasn’t dragged down into depressing territory. The book remained engaging and humorous throughout. 5/5 stars

Official Blurb:

When Valerie Stephens made the resolution to say yes to new adventures, she never thought she’d end up in the tiny town of Shambles, fake engaged to one of Ireland’s top rugby players. But there’s a first time for everything.

They say bad things happen in threes.

After my boyfriend broke off our engagement, I lost my apartment, and was laid off from my job, I can definitely attest to that.

They also say life is what happens when you say yes to new adventures.

So when my two sisters invited me to ring in the new year in Ireland, I decided to throw all caution to the wind and go for it. I was going to let “saying yes” be my new resolution.

Little did I know I’d spend New Year’s Eve having a hot and dirty one-night stand with Padraig McCarthy, one hell of a sexy Irishman. I also didn’t know that the brooding and intense sex god was one of Ireland’s top rugby players.

A rugby player with a proposition for me:

Come with him to his tiny hometown of Shambles and pretend to be his fiancé for a few days, just so that his ailing father can have some peace of mind.

It sounded simple enough.

It was anything but.

Not when a town gets up in your business, not when the media hunts you down, not when your past comes back in the picture, not when there are real hearts and feelings at stake.

Not when there are secrets that could break you.

They say life is what happens when you say yes to new adventures.

This is my life in Shambles.

Imperfect Match- Cover Reveal!

Imperfect Match, a sexy friends to lovers standalone romance, from New York Times bestselling Corinne Michaels & USA Today bestselling Melanie Harlow, is coming April 26th and here is the cover!

Blurb:

Rule number one for a professional matchmaker?

Don’t fall in love with your client.

I screwed that up when I fell for my best friend, Reid Fortino. He’s gorgeous, successful, and sexy as hell. I figured it would be easy to find him a match—and save the family business at the same time.

But the more time I spend attempting to find the perfect girl, the more I realize how much I want him for my own. What’s the harm if we give in for just one night?

I should have known that would never be enough.

Now I’m on the verge of losing my job and my heart.

We were an imperfect match from the start, but I don’t know how to let him go.

Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.

His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.

You know the type—wolfish smile and the gravity of a black hole. The kind of man who sucks all the air from the room the second he enters it. My cocky boss thinks this internship was wasted on me, and he doesn’t hesitate to let me know.

But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.

And maybe my heart, too.

Blurb:

Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury.

Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down.

The first female friend I ever had.

And she might just be the first woman I ever fall in love with.

When an emergency means she needs my help running her family’s charity, I’m happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world—taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out.

The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I’m not a man to avoid, that we’re not as unsuited as she believes.

She sees herself as the book-reading, science-loving introvert while I’m the dangerous, outgoing, charmer.

She thinks I love parties and people whereas she prefers pajamas and a takeaway.

What she doesn’t realize is that I like everything about her–the way her smile lights up a room, how her curves light up my imagination, and especially the way her lips taste when coated with tequila.

She’s the first woman I ever fell in love with. I just need to know if she could ever love me too.

About the Author:
