Beth Yarnell - Lush

Lush (Pleasure at Home, #2)Lush by Beth Yarnall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lucy is going to ask help from the one man she swore she would never lay eyes on again. Cal her billionaire ex boyfriend broke her heart when he cheated on her with his secretary. But her circumstance is bad, real bad.. She has a crazy ex husband trying to harm her and her beautiful baby girl Poppy, and because of that she will crawl back to Cal and ask him for the job she desperately needs.

Cal has a job for her, but its not one shes expecting.. role of wife! Cal needs a wife to fix his image. Not only that but he knows whats happening with Lucy, and he wants to protect her. Even if Lucy is totally unaware of how much Cal actually knows about her secrets.

This was a great read! The romance was great and the sex was steamy but I also loved the added element of suspense and risk due to the crazy ex.

Cal was a awesome character, I really enjoyed watching him woo his wife and claim her trust. He did a really nice job at trying to understand her needs and my goodness he was a hot fierce protector!

My heart cried for Lucy and all she had suffered, her body and self esteem was battered and I am so happy she found the true love she craved.

I read this story without reading book one! I'm sad I didn't realize this was one in a series.. However it didn't take away anything from the story. This was a great plot that was truly entertaining!

Belle Ami - The One

The One (The Only One #1)The One by Belle Ami
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a hard book review to write, I've read so many other reviews and in part I agree. The start of this book is some what confusing, Can a guy who gives a hooker 25G because he wanted her to better herself, really play his part in an elaborate scheme?

The first few chapters are a little confusing, so many characters who have not yet come together.. A lot is going on and we know very little.

Adelia is a somewhat secluded character if not gullible, a strange man comes out of nowhere and your changing your whole world for him. Can it happen? I guess you can get women like her but she was so naive. I mean the woman made it through college she can't be that closed off right?

BUT I Stuck with this book!! I am happy I did. This was a train wreck waiting to happen, like rubber necking at a car accident. You knew Adelia was heading for a fall and you wanted to see it. Save her! Uncover this scary, crazy scheme and all its secrets. It made for page turning, riveting reading.

To my better judgement I liked Miles the feminist in me is screaming but I did! He was damaged goods, not in a psychopath way like his sister but he had a dark side to him.

Do I feel his love for Adelia is genuine.. Absolutely and I knew from the very start he would be the weak link in the plan. We knew from early on Karolin was calling the shots she has manipulation down and it was terribly scary to see the lengths that this women went too. Parts of this book are RAW and not to everybody liking but this is a dark story.

I really liked that Adelia seemed to grow a backbone for her kids.. near the end. Do I think its over? Not by a long shot!! I can not wait for book two I need to know how this is all doing to plan out.

Karolin needs to be put in a padded room and I hope Miles sees her for what she is!
I also think Lucas needs to be looked into more there is something there I am sure of it!
Do I want Adelia with David, I don't know! I do hope for a happy ending with Miles he needs a genuine love.. He needs light in his life.
Do I think he killed her parents? NO. Their are so many questions left to find answers to!

So in conclusion this book for me was a rough start, I was overwhelmed by the number of characters and little information. But I am thrilled to have stuck with this read. I am excited for the next read in this trilogy..

Great clothing deals

Shopping for kids is expensive, any mother knows and the older they get the harder it is to make that dollar stretch. Their are so many popular brands out there nowadays and I'm always searching for places that sell these brands at a great price. 
This week I came across 6pm.com I just had to share this neat website with you guys not only do they offer awesome prices but FREE shipping on your order!

I found these shoes for my 4 year old daughter they normally retail at $69 for just $39.99
What a win!

FYI this is my personal shared opinion, I'm not working with this site.

Tracy Wolff - Play Me

This series is amazeballs! If you loved Ethan Frost you'll love his best friend Sebastian.  Sebastian is back in Sin City Las Vegas running one of the world's biggest casino's. This is the last place he wants to be, when he walked out 10 years ago he said he would never go back. He hates this city, his father and everything these things represent. Until Aria,  Aria walked into his office all attitude and loud talk after racking a Whale (rich guy grubby hands). He sees what lays beneath that polished finish she shows the world. He wants her, to teach her everything he knows about control.

Aria is making her way in the world, she may not have it all but damn shes fought hard for what she has and her freedom was worth the fight after turning her back on the life she once lived. Sebastian calls to her in a way no other man ever has, he sets her body on fire. But he also scares the crap out of her... He tests every wall she ever put up and pulls her to the edge of every boundary.

This couple have there own major demons they are both trying to be the people they want to be while fighting against there big shot families. The sparkle of the lights and the sounds of the slot machines hide the real Las Vegas and it isn't pretty.  This couple are battling to make it through.

These short books where a huge win for me! The chemistry is off the chain, hot hot hot, Sebastian knows what he wants and goes to get it always testing boundaries. Although Aria is seen as the submissive in the relationship she is so strong it's amazing and I love that Sebastian wants to teach her this valuable lesson.
Ethan and Chloe make a great appearance in these reads that sets the plot for the next Ethan frost novel... I can not wait! These Men are powerful and I pity the fool who stands in there way.

Fertilty Issues

I really thought hard about writing this post, Whether I should do it or not. This has been a very private but difficult struggle in my life and while I wanted to keep it private I found so many people just didn't understand my pain. I want to tell my story to let other women know  who are dealing with this issue themselves that I UNDERSTAND.

I have 2 beautiful children I love more then life itself, I am a SAHM and I love having my kids with me everyday. My youngest started Pre K this school year and my husband and I figured now would be an awesome time to try for a third child.

I already have two healthy children so a third should be a breeze right? That's what I thought.

In August I found out I was pregnant and I couldn't of been more excited! Then a week after I found out I started spotting. I went to the doctors office and was told I had a chemical pregnancy. Which is an early miscarriage. I was devastated and hurt but my doctor told me to try again and not to be disheartened.

In September I found out I was pregnant a second time. When I went for an ultrasound we seen a yolk Sac but no baby, not uncommon given my dates it was seen as too early. A week later I started spotting for a second time... COULD THIS REALLY HAPPEN AGAIN?
Sure enough it happened... I was told my miscarriage would pass naturally. At this point I was so physically and emotionally drained. My heart hurt and my body was tired.  8 days later I wake up in the middle of the night with the worst pain in my stomach. The next morning  I go to my family doctor.. At this point the pain is unbearable I've never felt pain like this in my entire life, I can not breathe on a scale of 1-10 I am at 11. The doctor rushes me to ER.

None of the pain medication is helping me I feel like I am dying and its terrifying. After a scan I find out that my miscarriage did not pass  naturally, my pregnancy was Ectopic which ruptured. I was bleeding Internally, I have so much blood its in my chest cavity my lungs can not expand correctly.

The doctor at this point is telling me I could of died if I wouldn't of come to the hospital for treatment.

I was rushed into surgery, I had all these forms I have to sign, I'm over whelmed and in pain I am scared I may die. My tube could not be repaired, the doctor took away one tube and ovary. I was devastated. I know this had to be done but it doesn't change the feeling inside.

Recovery was in a maternity ward which was so hard, While I could probably conceive again it would be harder and the risk for me is so high. I do have children who nearly lost there mother and so I need to take that into account.


What people don't understand is.. its so freaking hard as a woman and emotionally blowing to know your chances of conception may have been taken away. So many people mean well by telling me to count my blessings that my life was saved, which I do, and count my blessings I  have children, which I do.

BUT please understand it doesn't matter how many children you have it still hurts the same, it still hurts like your heart has been ripped out of your chest. When your family have set there heart on having another baby and it doesn't happen the pain is unreal.

I do not have to feel bad or guilty about hurting its a natural process, its ok to grieve it doesn't make you selfish.
