Michel’s Review

I usually shy away from “Royalty” romance novels but was intrigued by this blurb. I was looking for something different with a bit of political intrigue.

In today’s modern world one would think that arranged marriages are a thing of the past. Most of countries that still have monarchies are usually for ceremonial and diplomatic purposes rather than presiding over the government. Most of us are enamored with the idea of royalty and fascinated by the princes and princesses.

Downfall is anything but the typical royal romance. It’s actually kind of ugly because the royal heirs are being used as political pawns in a very treacherous world.

The marriage has been arranged since childhood between Prince Luka Catano of Niaps and Princess Eden Safrin of Farrow . The two have not met until they both were to attend Kings Passage University. They have one year to pursue their studies and get to know one another before their marriage.  When the two meet not only can they not stand one another but also have different agenda’s in the grand scheme of life.  Luka wants to sow his royal oats until the wedding, Eden wanted a fairytale romance. Unfortunately their one year reprieve is cut short due to their countries dangerous  political crisis. These world situations change the arrangement and they are forced into a hasty marriage.

Life is miserable for both of them. The royal palace of Niaps is full of deception, cruelty, and filled with hatred.  Eden doesn’t know how to survive this kind of environment. She’s determined to find her way.

Luka is hiding many secrets. His open affairs and blatant disregard for Eden is horrendous. Beneath the surface there is another Luka altogether. Will Eden ever get to see that Luka?

Just when things are becoming bearable life throws another wrench in their twisted marriage.

Downfall is only the beginning of the Kingdoms of Sin series by Willow Aster. This is not a fairytale, it’s a story of survival. I can’t wait to see what comes next.


Willow Aster is the author of True Love Story, In the Fields, Maybe Maby, Fade to Red, Lilith, and 5,331 Miles. She is also half of the Fisher & Aster writing duo of The End of Men series.

Writing is the ultimate escape … I love it and hate it and can’t live without it. My home is in St. Paul, MN with my husband, two kids, and our rescue dog.

A chorus of agreement rings out around the room as everyone, unanimously, confirms their support.

Adrenaline courses through my veins, and I just know this is it.

The pivotal moment where everything changes.

Where the power shifts and the people in this room are primed to take back control.

I cast a glance over everyone again, and powerful emotion swims up my throat. Before, the guys were fond of tossing out sentiments that they would kill for me or take a bullet for me, and I was skeptical. Especially when everyone in this room has betrayed me in some way.

But that’s in the past.

Because I look at them now, and I know it’s the truth.

I know they are in this with me.

That they want this as badly as me, and they will do whatever it takes to help me reclaim control over my life.

It’s a surreal feeling.

To know I have such a formidable group of guys standing behind me, watching my back, and supporting my decisions. The feeling of empowerment is incredible. Indescribable. And exactly what I need to get me through the weeks and months ahead. It’s not going to be easy, especially the part I have designated to play. But I know I’m up for the challenge with my crew at my side.

We will make it happen.

This time, the bastard is going down.

And there will be no getting back up.

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

“When I’m touching some part of him. Everything feels right with the world, and I know we can conquer mountains.” -Abby

What an epic conclusion to Kaiden and Abby’s story! This story was jam packed with action, suspense, secrets and steaminess.

Sweet Retribution picks up right where Twisted Betrayal left off and it literally has action exploding from the pages. It was non-stop suspense and I was not able to put this book down.

Readers will finally see the big picture and the corruptness of The Elite. The evil that resides within this secret world was nothing I could begin to imagine. Secrets will be revealed, and revenge will be sweet. No one is safe….

I loved the growth of the characters in this series. The development and growth of Abby and Kaiden from the first book until this last book was phenomenal. They are such a strong couple and they both love so deeply and so hard. Their protective instincts for each other and the ones they love known no bounds.

In this book, there were a lot of new characters introduced which brought lots of drama to the story. They created more demented twists and turns too.

I was very satisfied with the ending but I’m not ready to leave this world of Rydeville. I need more Abby and Kaiden and hope to see them in the upcoming books!

5 stars!

New Release + Review: Strip for Me by Georgia Coffman

SFM ebook Cover 1 (1)
A story that starts with
“Once upon a time in Vegas…” isn’t supposed to end with “happily ever after.”
I know this better than anyone, and I can’t let history
repeat itself. This is why I have rules, and at the top of that list is no
fraternizing with audience members after shows. But my rules mean nothing after
my instant connection with Kendall. Her southern accent suggests a certain
charm, but her sharp tongue says otherwise. Which is why I can’t help
myself—she’s a mystery I need to solve. The more I get to know her, the more I
start to believe she could be the one.
Until my past comes barreling in and makes me wonder if my
one night with Kendall was real or all a cruel game.


Although I live in LA, my conventional family loves to remind
me of my small-town upbringing. They’ve never approved of my life
choices—dropping out of college, moving across the country, and dating around,
to name a few. Getting involved with Sebastian will be yet another decision
they disapprove of—how much more of their disappointment can I take?
After all, he’s a stripper for Vegas’s hottest male revue
show. He can’t be my forever.
The odds are against us, but then again, anything can happen
in a story that starts with “Once upon a time in Vegas…”


*Strip for Me is Book 1 in the Naked Heat series. Each book
is a standalone contemporary romance.*

Storyline: 4 stars

Characters: 4 stars

Heat Factor: 4 stars

Overall Rating: 4 stars

Strip for Me is the debut novel for new and upcoming author Georgia Coffman. It’s also the first book in The Naked Heat Series. This book was highly enjoyable and I’m excited to see what’s next from this author.

This story follows Kendall and Sebastian.

Kendall isn’t close to her sister Lauren. In fact, they don’t get along at all but as sisters, Kendall feels obligated to attend her sister’s bachelorette party… a weekend in Vegas. Moving from a small-minded town in Alabama, Kendall now lives in LA so when her sister has her bachelorette party so close, there’s no excuse. What Kendall isn’t expecting is to meet a man that’ll soon turn her world upside down.

Vegas, Sin City. The City that never sleeps. Home of bachelor and bachelorette debauchery. Where the slot machines are always going, and shows are always happening… especially if you are a stripper.

Sebastian is a part of Naked Heat, an all-male review show. Spending his nights performing for screaming women, he’s become accustomed to the women and the grabbing. What he doesn’t expect is to see a beautiful blond in yoga pants in the club. Faced with an intensifying attraction to her, he’s determined to learn more about her. However, his past is determined to complicate things.

So what happens when sparks connect between a stripper and just an average girl?!? Well, you’ll just have to find out yourself….

I was impressed with this book especially since it’s a debut novel from this author. The story was well written and interesting. It had humor and drama galore. The characters were likable. Overall it was a good start to a series, and I will read this author again.

4 stars!

Release Blitz and Review: I Knead You Tonight by Teagan Hunter – Slice Series – Book 2

I hate Drew Woods, and she hates me. 
Even so, I’m not the cold jerk most make me out to be, and I have no problem moving the single mom and her baby into my home. I do, however, draw a line when it comes to acting on the way her loose lips make me feel.
She’s too mouthy, too prying, and her curves are way too distracting.
I might have lost my way after a nearly fatal car accident, but I’m not stupid. Giving in to Drew would be a short-lived fix for this pain I’m saddled with, and I knead something permanent.
I’d be insane to think what we have could be anything other than temporary…right?
Grab Your Slice Here:
Michel’s Review
I love everything about the Slice Series by Teagan Hunter. The second book of the series, I Knead You Tonight is even more entertaining than the first book.  I laughed out loud, felt every emotion, and connected with all of the characters. These people could be my friends, neighbors, and co-workers.  I understood their daily lives and daily struggles.
Everyone who knows Winston is well aware of his slacker tendencies. They are quickly learning that he is not the most reliable person when it comes to work or commitments. They also know he has a heart of gold beneath his grumpy surface. But when he rescues Drew Woods from her destitute situation and gives her a place to live with her son, he’s showing his true colors. He really is a nice guy. He’s starting to act like the guy he used to be before his near fatal car accident.
Drew Woods has had to fight for everything her entire life. She’s fiercely independent and determined to make it on her own. She’s also wise enough to accept help for the sake of her son’s well being.  Moving in with Winston is temporary. Why does he have to be so sexy and unpredictable?
Both Winston and Drew need to fix their lives. Together they make a great team. Together they can strive to become better. Together they can re-invent their lives one slice at a time.
I absolutely loved this book! It’s a fun, light hearted frenemies to lovers romance!
I highly recommend reading I Knead You Tonight by Teagan Hunter!


I’m a Missouri-raised gal, but currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband and 9-year-old dog. I spend my days begging him for a cat, and I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.

Writing is my passion, and this is just the beginning of my journey.

A Lie For A Lie

All In Series – Book 1

By Helena Hunting

Buy: Amazon  




From the New York Times bestselling author of the Pucked series comes a romantic comedy about instant attraction, second chances, and not-so-little white lies.

Sometimes I need an escape from the demands, the puck bunnies, and the notoriety that come with being an NHL team captain. I just want to be a normal guy for a few weeks. So when I leave Chicago for some peace and quiet, the last thing I expect is for a gorgeous woman to literally fall into my lap on a flight to Alaska. Even better, she has absolutely no idea who I am.

Lainey is the perfect escape from my life. My plan for seclusion becomes a monthlong sex fest punctuated with domestic bliss. But it ends just as abruptly as it began. When I’m called away on a family emergency, I realize too late that I have no way to contact Lainey.

A year later, a chance encounter throws Lainey and me together again. But I still have a lie hanging over my head, and Lainey’s keeping secrets of her own. With more than lust at stake, the truth may be our game changer.

Michel’s Review

I am so excited about Helena Hunting’s new hockey series. The All In series is a spin off of the Pucked Series with a brand new expansion team located in Seattle. A Lie For A Lie is the introduction to this series and actually takes place in Chicago with all of our beloved Pucked friends and family. The bonus is their world is expanding and readers are going to fall for the sexy new warriors on ice. A Lie For A Lie has set the tone and it was so much fun to read!

Every year RJ ( Rook) goes to Alaska with his brother and father on his off season to do some fishing. It’s the perfect way to decompress after a grueling season. This year is a bit different because his father passed away a few years ago and his brother was unable to attend due to complications in his wife’s pregnancy. By the time he gets the news he’s already boarding a jumper plane heading to his family’s fishing cabin. To his surprise the delightful woman who fell in his lap on the previous flight is sitting right next to him. Little did he know this would change his vacation and eventually change his world.

Lainey went to Alaska to work on her thesis while studying the mating habits of whales. It’s also a bonus  to escape her over protective family.  Little did she know she would be studying her own mating habits with the hot alpaca farmer she met on the plane. A little vacation sex, a big cabin with a comfy bed and hot water, and a loaded refrigerator with a real working stove are just what she needs. What she didn’t count on is falling head over heels in love with the hot alpaca farmer.

A family emergency, miscommunications, and a whole mess of lies lead to the end their affair in the Alaskan paradise. Those who say what happens on vacation should stay on vacation should just shut up. Most people want to remember their fantastic vacations. Some even bring home souvenirs. Rook and Lainey are no different.

One year later at one of his teammates kid’s crazy birthday party two lost lovers once again reunite. Only this time they have to face reality and tell the truth. Let the fun begin.

I absolutely loved this book and all the cameo’s from our crazy Pucked friends. It made this a truly delightful read. I can’t wait for more of this new series.

Helena Hunting has become the queen of rom-com romance. She also melts icy hearts with her hot-blooded hockey players.

By Monica Murphy

Candice Gaines loves Christmas. Not only does she bask in the twinkling lights, sing Christmas carols and go crazy with the decorations, she’s also in the giving spirit, donating much of her time and wealth to various charities in the local area.

Charlie Sullivan despises Christmas. Though it keeps his family afloat, considering they own Sullivan Family Christmas Tree Farm, the main provider for Christmas trees on the Monterey peninsula. He’d much rather work among the trees versus have to deal with people.

But Charlie’s parents are taking on more philanthropic projects—and as their oldest child, they want him to be their official public representative. He just has to play nice and convince everyone he’s not a total holiday hater.

When Charlie’s mom asks Candice to accompany him to a variety of holiday parties and events, she reluctantly agrees. She thinks Charlie is a big ol’ Grinch, but is determined to change his mindset and help him spread Christmas cheer. Charlie finds Candice too chatty, too sweet, too much. Do people like her really exist?

Why yes, yes they do. The more time they spend together—along with a few kisses under the mistletoe—the more they start to like each other. Hopefully Charlie can convince Candice he doesn’t have a heart that’s two sizes too small before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.

A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

Michel’s Review

Holidate by Monica Murphy is the third book in The Dating Series. This fun, dynamic series is based on the complications of the modern day dating world, alpha heroes who are clueless with the world of relationships and romance but experts in the bedroom. It takes a strong willed woman to put up with these heroes.

Candice Gaines may seem like a meek heiress spending her time working on one charity after another but that is only a general impression. Beneath the sugar and spice is a strong willed woman who is compassionate, organized, and sensible. She’s very reluctant when she’s recruited to help introduce Charlie Sullivan from the Sullivan Family Tree Farm into the community holiday events and festivities for philanthropic purposes. After a hearing a lot of negative opinions from her “girl posse” she’s inclined to refuse her help. After an unfortunate incident she finds herself guiding grumpy Charlie through the holiday season. He makes the Grinch look cheerful and Scrooge seem generous.

Spending his life working on the farm and making their fortune off the holiday season, the last thing Charlie wants to do is spend his free time celebrating the season.  He would work through all the holiday festivities if it wasn’t for his deal with Candice and his mother. Here’s hoping there’s lots of spiked eggnog and an overabundance of mistletoe. What Charlie doesn’t know is it’s his season to fall head over heels in love.

Holidate is another fun, charming romance by Monica Murphy. This book can be read as a stand alone romance or in series order. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and can’t wait for the holiday season. I only wish we had a sexy tree farmer in our community.
