JB Salsbury Fighting Fate

Fighting Fate (Fighting, #6)Fighting Fate by J.B. Salsbury
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I got a copy from the author in return for an honest review!

This is one of my most favorite series of all time! JB has turned me into a total book boyfriend whore, just when I think I have a favorite fighter bam another book comes out.

I feel like I've waited forever for Axelle and Kill to get together, with all of Axe's issues we knew it wouldn't be easy and it wasn't!
Kill has to be the most understanding guy in the world with the patience of a saint! Although you can't help but feel bad for both characters, Axelle is by far a very broken character with Daddy issues for days and understandably so!

It was awesome to see these two characters, grow, learn and develop into adulthood. The chemistry they have is so intense and a love like no other. Their was times I wanted to smack them both in the back of the head lol.

I loved visiting all our old friends as well as meeting new characters, this series will never get old and I can't wait for more!

Stripped 2 HM WARD

Stripped 2: A Ferro Family Novel (Stripped, #2)Stripped 2: A Ferro Family Novel by H.M. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was well worth the wait! Jon lives up to his full potential in this book!
He has always been the clown, the fun time guy.. What we now know is that Jon is more Ferro then we thought with his smartness and business savvy ways. What we have seen previously is a mask used to guard himself. Now he has everything he ever wanted within his grasp, Cassie, and hes going to fight to keep her.

Cassie is a fighter, she fights to survive, to live and for the people she loves. She brings out the best in Jon, they offer each other a special type of comfort that only they understand given their history.
The abuse both characters suffer is heartbreaking which makes their romance for me all the more special. I looooooove that Sean was in this book and he has Jon's back!

Amazing! Holly has done it again

Dirty - Kylie Scott

Dirty (Dive Bar, #1)Dirty by Kylie Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was a big stage dive fan! I was thrilled to hear their would be a spin off series with a character we met in Ben's book. Vaughan oh how I love you so..

When Vaughan's music career comes to a halt he reluctantly heads home to a town hes spent years running from, this forces him to deal with personal issues he hasn't wanted to look at in a long time.

He finds Lydia Green a runaway bride hiding out and seeking shelter in his bath tub. True to Vaughan's nature he offers to help Lydia for the short time hes back, what he wasn't expecting was to like this girl as much as he does....

But is it enough to make him stay?

Lydia almost married a man that is gay, her plans and life is in ruins and what she needs more then anything right now is a friend. Vaughan gives her that and a lot more, however she reluctantly knows their is a time limit on the friendship they share. If only her heart would get the memo...

Kylie Scott did it again! She is amazing with writing memorable kick ass characters. I just want to climb into this book and into the world she creates! The chemistry and banter her characters share is always HOT page turning material. I am totally smitten with the new characters and can't wait for each of their stories to commence.

We also still get snippets of our Stage Dive characters!!!! I mean whats not to love!

He hits you because he likes you... Is not OK

It is never OK to tell a little girl "I think he hits you because he likes you"!!!


Teach our children regardless of gender how to grow into the respectable well mannered individual we know they can be. BULLYING in any form is not OK

We need to sit down with our kids and have that talk.

JC Reed!!! Bad Boy



Bad Boy by J.C. Reed and Jackie Steele
Release Date: February 23rd, 2016
Full length, 350pp
Synopsis:
I should have seen it coming.
Sexy? Handsome? Trouble? Check, check, and check.
Is he messing up my life? Hell yes.
All the signs are there: he is a bad boy.
Even his name is a lie. Too bad I married him. I can't wait to get divorced. Does this make me sound crazy?
I know I should avoid him, run as fast as I can. However, when a harmless misunderstanding lands me in a foreign prison cell, my dear, lying husband is the only one who can get me out. Crap. I shouldn't accept.

But how to say no to trouble when said trouble is the one who makes me fantasize all the dirty things he could do to me?

Snow Storm 2016




Did Y'all make it through the storm ok??

While my kids loved the extra snow day off of school the amount of snow we got was crazy! I can not remember that much snow before! We kept our power, although we where snowed in for a day or so we made out ok.. My thoughts and prayers go out to those at the Jersey Shore who flooded out again! It's just devastating to see the same people who are trying to recover from Sandy be hit again.

So what does one do with 28" of snow? We went snow sledding!! We found a local hill and we "hit the slopes" It was a totally inexpensive activity since we got our sleds at the local 5Below store!
