Sleepless in Las Vegas by Colleen Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Awesome Sizzling Stars
***Very small spoilers***
So this book completely took me by surprise. I went into it thinking oh easy romantic read. What I got was a freaking suspenseful heartfelt passionate thrill! From the first page it sucked me in and I just didn't want to stop reading. I kept saying housework, chores, ..well they gotta wait so I would dive back in and I just enjoyed every page.
Val was a Katrina survivor, probably the first thing that spoke to me since I am a born and raised Louisiana girl. She had to completely start over and she was so strong and kept persevering after losing everything she had including her precious grandmother. It wasn't an easy thing to do. She wanted to be a PI so badly and her mentor suddenly tells her some startling news where Drake comes into play Jayne had cancer and was leaving Val in the hands of stubborn as hell Drake. But well Val and Drake had a little bit of history in recent events up to this first "formal" meeting. Jayne had cancer and was leaving Val in the hands of stubborn as hell Drake. But well Val and Drake had a little bit of history in recent events up to this first "formal" meeting.  Their relationship started rocky and just kept getting rockier. The thing about Val and Drake was that the chemistry was sizzling from the their very first interaction. Drake was dealing with the anniversary of his father's death and so many other things happen to him in this book that he actually would have to be superman to not get a little irritable a time or two. His family meant everything to him.
There were so many other great characters. Val's best friends and Drakes mom and grandmother. Those interactions just made me love these characters and feel like I really connected with them.

This love story grew on each page and I was mad with them, I laughed with them and I cried with them. Val couldn't fight her feelings for Drake. She just was afraid to open up. But every time they got together they learned more and more about each other and she just fell farther.

As they held each other’s gaze, she felt a fluttering

inside, imagining how it would be to face him like

this, look into his eyes, day after day for the rest of

her life.

I love sex in a story ..after all I made a blog called Sizzling Pages but this book wasn't about the sizzle for me. This was about a beautiful love story involving two people that need someone who would stand beside them and trust them. Drake was a stubborn man and he did stupid things but he always came around and fessed up to make it right. When this strong sexy alpha opened his heart I swooned. When they finally set the pages on fire it was emotional and deeply intimate.

There were so many funny moments. I mean I must've laughed out loud so many times my kids thought I was going crazy (or crazier). Val was snarky and had genuine New Orleans sass. I loved it. Colleen brought authentic flavor to this story with Val's personality. I felt almost like I knew Val. Drake grew on me until I wanted to reach in and just squeeze him to death. I recommend this book to all those die hard romantics. This one will keep you flipping the pages.

Remy (REAL #3) by Katy Evans

5 Million Stars wouldn't cover it!!!

I fell in love with this couple in REAL and I haven't been the same since. Remy's character spoke to me in so many ways but especially with is mood disorder. I have a personal experience with Bipolar disorders and mental issues in general. The feeling of being discarded, unloved and forgotten broke my heart. But it also felt completely genuine and real from this issue's standpoint. To know that you don't have control of your emotions is the worst kind of thing to deal with. To also know that people don't know the real you or want you for who you really are inside was so devastating to Remy. Brooke came along living a shell of a life and completely started healing Remy's heart. He finally found somebody that really wanted the true HIM. The man not just the fighter. She wanted him physically yes but more than  that she want him emotionally and her soul called out to his. If there is a true things as mates then Remy and Brooke were destined to be mates. I devoured this book and I loved every possessive thought that Remy had about Brooke. All those times Brooke was feeling so emotional and was reciprocated a thousand times by Remy. He was the most loyal and is the most loyal book boyfriend, hero or just plan man in a book that I've ever read. Hands down Remington "Riptide" Tate is 100% REAL ..and is the true definition of ALPHA.
He protects, provides, possesses, prowls, takes, gives, scents, licks, and honors.
But most of all he loves with every beat of his heart and every ounce of his soul. Luckily he found the one person who loved him for him and saw in him the true warrior and ultimate mate that he is. He never felt love till Brooke.

Brooke never really knew love until Remy and once they fought all the battles and came out winning I just cheered right along with them. This story and this couple will stay with me forever. I will be thinking about this for a long time and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to review this amazing story. 
Thank you Katy Evans, this love story was a true gift. I can't wait for more from you.

Once Written Twice Shy by Carey Decevito

After a bitter marriage, Paxton seeks respite from his loss. Rediscovering his writing, he never expected creating a piece worthy of reading nor for two unsuspecting paths to cross in the most unconventional of ways.

Thousands of miles separated them, yet he'd never felt closer to anyone. Finding out that happiness and love was attainable again, was one thing. Having Alissa, was another.

When the two meet, sparks fly, chemistry is beyond explosive, and emotions reach a boiling point. Their brief love affair ignited the fuse but what Paxton neglected to anticipate was that his son would fall for the sweet, meek demurred woman in Alissa or the fact the woman would be their salvation; in more ways than one

4.5 Sweet Sizzling Stars
5/5 Sizzling Hearts for Heat!!

I was totally blown away by this book from the start. First of all male POV which isn't all that common. I loved being inside Pax's head. He was the most sincere and genuine character. I loved how he just pulled himself up and didn't let his ex's betrayal turn him off from finding love again. Alyssa seemed like someone who just really wanted a family and to belong. These two just clicked in so many way. I did not expect this book to go from sweet to sizzling hot in 0 to 60 seconds either. Let's just say Pax showed Alyssa how much he wanted her anytime he felt like it. Alyssa brought was finally able to live out the scenes she normally only wrote about. So many place and so many ways for this sexy couple have some sexy times.

My heart just broke through all that little Jasper's trials and struggles. I loved how Pax balanced his love for his child without having to push away Alyssa. He let her in and she found the family she always wanted and needed and Pax and Jasper found their broken home was put back together.

One thought came to mind when I peered over Jasper’s head and found Alissa smiling back at me—this was home.
Home wasn’t about where I was; home was about who I was with.

I can't wait to read the next book and I knew before even looking it up that it would be Jake's book. If you are in the mood for one sexy sweet hero and an heartfelt but hot read..then this one is for you!

Thank you Carey for letting me review this awesome story.

Asking For Trouble (Line of Duty #4) by Tessa Bailey


5 /5 Awesome SWEET Sizzling Stars

 5/5 Sizzling HOT Hearts for Heat!! 

Tessa Bailey keep getting better and better honey! I loved this feisty hot tempered couple so much. Usually enemies to lovers tales ...they stress me out. But this one you could see beneath the surface what these two wanted but were hiding the whole time. I laughed out loud so many times and of course felt the heat on more than one occasion. Some of the hottest moments had to be the funniest. That was a unique thing for me to encounter. Brent had the perfect filthy mouth and the imagination to go with it.

 The thing that really got me was how tender this 250 6’5” mountain of a man Brent could be. One minute they’d be at each others throats then suddenly the thoughts that would cross Brent’s mind just floored me. The back and forth power play kept me on wondering who was going to be “on top” next. Loved that about this story. Neither had a problem giving each other exactly what they needed.

 Hands down I think this one was my favorite and before this the first book was in 1st place. I am wanting a Matt story and in my mind I was picturing him with Brent’s sister from college. But then the “I have different tastes” comment from Matt had me really curious about..hoping he’s a Dom maybe? The idea of Tessa writing full fledged BDSM has me panting with excitement. That is just where my brain went with broody Matt. All in all..this was a super hot read and pretty sweet love story that I could not put down.

Beautifully Awake (Beautifully Awake #1) by Riley Mackenzie

10 Awesome Sizzling Stars
10 Sizzling BURNING THE PAGES Hearts for Heat!!

OH where do I start? What a freaking ride! Like from the first encounter this couple exploded with chemistry. Chase reacted with such intensity to Lili ..his "Blue" . At first I was like ..does he hate her? But then BAM to the BAM (Trademarked by Tara) ..this book burned up my Kindle. This guy had it all. All my ✓ boxes! Dirty Talker? OMG like freaking FILTHY and I LOVED EVERY DIRTY WORD HE SAID!
He was Arrogant, Cocky, Jealous..oh boy super Posessive. Hell forget burning your bra...just let him do what he freaking wants all day long! 

“That’s four. I’ll surprise you for five, but number six, I’m back inside.” 
  That's right..counting O's hot hot.

So you get this book was hot right?
That's not the part that won me over. ( Ok so yea it had a big part OK? I mean Sizzling Pages...yea I like it hot) ..but really that wasn't the whole reason.
This story had such emotional freaking depth. I mean these two characters lived through pure and utter hell in their pasts. Things that would normally destroy most people. They didn't stay down. Both lead lives that helped people..even though they were hiding or "sleep walking" through life.. Two damaged souls crashing into each other and neither would ever be the same again. 

"Fifteen fucking years I slept through life. Now I’m fucking living it, wide awake.” Chase
There was a time when I wanted to beat the hell out of Chase but when all the secrets and past "truth" came out, all I could do was just cry. My heart broke for both of them.
These two finally gave in and gosh the love that they shared was so beautiful. 

I loved the other characters in this book. Lili's BFF Sierra was a freaking RIOT ..she cracked me up. Then Asher he was swoonalishish! I can't wait for his book and YEP I called it..I am telling you him and Kate ..I just know it!
I really want a Guy book too! Like Guy and those dimples..yum!
The authors Riley MacKenzie definitely have a knack for writing scenes with so many emotions. I look forward to more from them. I swooned, laughed, yelled and cried during this book and I would not change one moment of any of those emotions. The only thing I'd love is some miracle to be able to read the deleted scenes in the epilogue. Yep I read the acknowledgments and ladies. GIMMEE!! PLEASE!!! I want more!! More Chase..gosh his POV was the icing on the HEA cupcake!!
Ok needless to say I found this book when I needed it the most. Hot scenes, passionate beautiful love story and one sizzling read that will stay with me quite somet time.
Read this book!
