I felt so many emotions with this book which proves to me how good it is! Yet again there were twists in the plot that i never ever would of guessed and that to me makes this 5 stars! I love unpredicable but then i love how they bring it all together seamlessly. I was on the edge of my sofa through a lot of this and i wont give away one thing from this book because i suggest you get your one click finger ready!
The only thing i am annoyed about it the fact i want Jets book and i want it now !! Haha

Another well written, hold on tight for a convoluted ride story. I love the back story and that this not just a typical romance story. There is a lot of meat in the story, action and hot sex. Bracken is a strong alpha, and although I love alphas, he was a bit too strong for me. Some of the scenes disturbed me a bit, but that is on me. Just not my cup of tea. The overall story was exciting and I can’t wait to read Jet’s story.

I think I need a cold shower after this book. 
Brecken – That man could melt icebergs with his fucking hotness and flood the damn world. 
This book is full of complete Alpha Male Dominance, but every Alpha needs a week spot and for Brecken that weak spot was Skye. I loved the banter back and forth between the two especially her stubborness. This book was full of some twists and turns some of which I didn’t see coming. 
The sex scenes in this were fucking panty melting, ovary exploding, scorching fucking hotness. 
Some of my commentary while reading this book.
That bitch 
That motherfucker
Oh my god 
You get the point. 
We also get introduced to a new character in this series, Jet and let me tell you he made me laugh while also had me wanting to know more about him. I’m ready for the next one.

This series just keeps getting better! I LOVE case, but Brecken?? he could melt your panties with one look.
this book has everything, it’s suspenseful, it’s hot, there’s danger, there’s a protective alpha male, twists and turns everywhere that you wouldn’t see coming.
I wish I could give more stars to show how amazing this book is ❤

Obsession is the 2nd book in the Seven Deadly Sins series. Brecken’s story can be read as a STANDALONE!

I have lost those who I have loved.
I have bled for those I hate.
I have lied to those who are honest.
What am I?

You’re a sinner dressed in white.
You’re a ghost in the night.
You’re the demons that I fight.
Who are you?

Both of us were sinners. She was hell-bent on revenge, and I was determined to let her have it. She was a beautiful sin that alone would be my damnation. And for her, I was willing to dig my own grave. She took what little pride I had left and made me look like a fool. I lusted for a taste of her darkness, for it was the same color as mine. I envied the way she was able to say no, as if she really meant it. I will endure the wrath of having her no matter the cost of my greed. But I have always been a glutton for punishment without any propensity of sloth. She became my obsession and like any other drug, she took all the pain away but brought me to a new level of low. Too bad falling in love with her brought on a different kind of hell that I wasn’t sure we would live through. We were both running from a past that was going to tear apart out future. What I thought was going to be a beautiful beginning turned out to be a torturous end.

For me, I finished this on probably the poop-ish day of the year, as its the anniversary to a similar situation. Having said that, I enjoyed the story line. Although I don’t think it was the best written, as it was a little rough in the spelling and wording. Definitely worth a read though. Now I’m off to read Selfish.

First off can I just say OMG!!! This is my first book by Shantel that I have read and shes definitely made me a fan for life. I did not expect all the twist and turns this book have but it was an amazing read. The ending brought me both tears (way tooooo many lol) and happiness as well. I am on a total book hangover now because of all the emotions that this book brought. If you really enjoy books that bring you lots of feels as your reading through them I HIGHLY recommend this book. LOVE LOVE LOVED it!!! Dash and Tabatha meet at a party randomly and end up having a romance for the books!

Dash OMG let’s just say this book has all the dayummm feels.  An almost let’s say forbidden love at first. The bad boy biker, with no regard for the law with the daughter of a racing legend/owner. They aren’t supposed to be together but their chemistry is undeniable. I fell hard for Dash in this one and let me tell you that Shantel Tessier absolutely destroys me and leaves me in a fetal position by the end of this with a bittersweet yet so heartwarming ending. You will be left tortured for days with this book.

I’ve never been one to follow the rules…or the law, for that matter. But when you find yourself behind bars and being offered the opportunity of a lifetime, you take it. I agreed to race motorcycles for Johnny Knight. A very powerful man who wanted me on his team, even knowing I was a liability. But will he still feel that way once he finds out that I had a one-night stand with his daughter? I didn’t mean for it to happen. I didn’t even know who she was until she walked into his office wearing my shirt from the night before. Too bad that was all she wanted-one night. It really didn’t matter who she was, I wanted more. So when she ran, I followed. I should have let her go. That would have been best for both of us. But I have never done what was right, why start now? I’ve always been willing to take a risk, no matter what it would cost me. And I knew she was worth it all.

I’m Erik Dashling, you can call me Dash. This is my story of how I willingly risked one dream for another. But everyone knows that now all dreams come true.

A Cinderella story
I really enjoyed reading this book. It definitely was the Cinderella type story with a sexy twist to it. Although in this book she at least got along with one of her step-sisters for most of the book and eventually works through issues with both her other step-sister and step-mother. She meets her prince charming at an event and things spark from there. They have an instant connection and things move forward quickly. I definitely recommend reading this book. Cute romance with some steamy scenes make it for a great read.

Do not get me wrong, i enjoyed the storyline. I would of liked a bit more drama within the storyline, but it was sweet none the less. I would of rated 4 stars but i could not look past the mountain of errors within the book. A few would be fine but i was in double figures.

A touching read. Beth hasnt had it easy and everything as she knows it changes dramatically overnight. Her pure soul is destined to help others and that she does. A beautiful story!
Reviewed by Katy – Rating 4 Stars

I have mixed emotions about this book. On one hand, I like the basic story line and the characters within the story line. A paranormal romance with a twist is always a good read. On the other hand, it seemed like the parts of the book just droned on and I would find myself forcing myself to keep reading because I would lose interest.
I also felt that some of the sex scenes were a bit too much and took time away from the meat of the story. I do want to give kudos for having an original idea for this story, and not following same type of stories that are written over and over.

From the moment I met Grayson Cole, I knew he was someone I wanted to let in my panties and maybe, even in my heart. One night, one sexy-as-sin kiss, and several drinks later, our incredible evening turns into a disaster and I’m apologizing for the vomit spatter on his fancy, black shoes. I never thought I’d see him again after that, no matter how many nights I spent wishing I would. Until a month later, he waltzes into my office as—MY NEW, HOT BOSS. 
I’m so screwed. 

She was meant to be a fun f*ck. That’s all I wanted. That’s all I needed. But Emma Williams could never be just that for me. The quirky, brunette vixen challenges me at every opportunity. My desire to have her has me working for her affections, like I’ve never done before. What is this woman doing to me? Not only am I her Boss, but I don’t do feelings. There’s only one way I see this ending. 
I’m f*cked for sure.

Beautiful book
This book is a beautiful addition to the Breaking Free Series. In this story we are reintroduced to Jeremy and Jade. Both are friends from the characters in the other Breaking Free books. This story provides an up close look at these characters. You find out about the hurts and challenges both face due to past relationships. This is a sweet friends to lovers story that has some interesting twists and turns in it. What I really loved about this story is how REAL it felt. It explores all the in betweens of how a relationship develops in such an honest way but don’t get me wrong, you still get nice steamy parts. Jeremy and Jade definitely provide some spiciness (wink wink). I also enjoyed the quirkiness of the characters and how funny they were. I had several laugh out loud moments in this book.
This author really excels at the intertwining of her individual books so they can be read on their own without issue. But if you read them as a collective, emotionally it just feels bigger. For me each book is a big piece to a puzzle. They have their own spot, providing a beautiful picture individually but when you put them all together, well the view is spectacular. It definitely gave me a big burst of the feels (haha). It was wonderful how this author really provided a chance to get caught up with the characters from the other books. Her words at the end felt poetic and brought everything together so nicely. I SO recommend this book and if you have a chance read the others, you won’t be disappointed. Happy Reading!!!

Jeremy Slade has it all: a job he wouldn’t trade for the world, a house he built with his own two hands, and the perfect woman who would become his wife. He always has plans drawn out, but life doesn’t always follow along with them. Sometimes even the best constructed plans can change without warning.

Jade Foxton does whatever she can to avoid being noticed. She is content to stay behind the camera, snapping photos of other people’s memories. After watching all her friends find love, Jade realizes the only way she is going to meet a man is to step out from behind the lens and meet him face-to-face.

Mutual friends and an assignment bring Jeremy and Jade together. What starts out as strictly professional soon develops into something unexpected. Keeping their relationship light is what the two of them decide, but life has a different idea in mind.

Win the game. Lose your heart.

Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That’s supposed to be the “perk” of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don’t want just any woman; I want her.

She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can’t stop thinking about the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She’s every ballplayer’s dream woman. And I’d do anything to make things right with her.

I’m done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.

I couldn’t get enough of this book and I devoured it. 

This book was simply full of storyline, from the beginning right up until the end. There was never a dull moment and it literally had me on the edge of my seat. 

So much going on with two stories really colliding with each other and at the centre of it all are two characters that I absolutely loved. If this were a movie or tv show I would be hooked watching each episode and dying for the next one. 

Travis and Saylor have their fair share of drama and OMG it had me biting my nails wondering how it would all play out. My heart raced watching these two just trying to do what’s best while the odds are stacked against them. 

I got angry for them at the roadblocks in their way and they were definitely outside forces that had me cursing up a storm. I mean COME ON !!! Could these two catch a break !!!

This book is an absolute five star for me and wow I definitely will be reading more books by Heidi McLaughlin. As far as romances go she definitely hit it out of the park with this one. Grand slam five star home run!!!

Whenever I wake up with a hangover, I often ask myself why I drank so much and promise that I’ll never do it again. That promise is something I’ve been breaking for the past few days, and up until now, I didn’t care.

I had hoped the booze would muddy my memory of last night, but it hasn’t. Every word she said, every expression she had, every punch to my chest to get me out of her apartment is crystal clear. I fucked up, and I don’t even know how. All I know is that the sobs I heard on the other side of Saylor’s door last night were enough to sober my stupid ass up.

For hours, I sat against her door, until a resident suggested I leave or they were going to call the police. If I hadn’t been arrested ear- lier, I probably would have encouraged them to dial Boston’s Finest. Another man might understand my plight. The woman that I want to be with kicked me out of her house, and while I probably deserved it, I didn’t want to leave until she stopped crying. I didn’t want to be the one to walk away in her time of need.

But as egos go—and believe me, mine is huge—I couldn’t let it get in the way any longer, so I walked my drunk ass back home with my tail between my legs, only to stay up all night while the booze wore off, knowing that I had to live with whatever I’d done to Saylor.

She’s the last person in the world who I want to hurt, and she’s the one person who can save me. Not only from a life behind bars, but from myself. When I’m with her, I’m a different person. The cocky son of a bitch whom everyone is used to doesn’t exist when she’s near me, and frankly, that is the man I like, or at least I used to. It’s easier being a fucking douche. It’s second nature to me and comes with the territory of being named one of the city’s most eligible bachelors.

Except when I’m with Saylor, I can be the man who hides in the shadow of that Travis Kidd. I can be the kind of man who doesn’t have to have a one-liner available or wink in order to get a phone number. When I’m with her, life outside of baseball starts to have a meaning, a fucking purpose.
