REVIEW: The Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred

2761356The Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

Sweet tea, corn bread, and soup beans—everyday fare for eight-year-old Alix French, the precocious darling of a respected southern family. But nothing was ordinary about the day she met ten-year-old Nick Anderson, a boy from the wrong side of town. Armed with only a tin of bee balm and steely determination, Alix treats the raw evidence of a recent beating that mars his back, an act that changes both of their lives forever.

Through childhood disasters and teenage woes they cling together as friendship turns to love. The future looks rosy until the fateful night when Frank Anderson, Nick's abusive father, is shot to death in his filthy trailer.

Suddenly, Nick is gone—leaving Alix alone, confused and pregnant. For the next fifteen years she wrestles with the pain of Nick's abandonment, a bad marriage, her family and friends. But finally, she's starting to get her life back together. Her divorce is almost final, her business is booming, and she's content if not happy—until the day she looks up and sees Nick standing across the counter. He's back…and he's not alone.

Once again Alix is plunged into turmoil and pain as Nick tries to win her love, something she resists with all her strength. Only one thing might break the protective wall she's built around her emotions—the truth about Frank Anderson's death. But when that truth comes out and those walls crumble, neither Alix nor Nick is prepared for the emotional explosion that could destroy as well as heal.

COMING SOON!!! Hothead by Stella Rhys

COMING SOON!!! Hothead by Stella Rhys releases on April 3!!!

Add to your Goodreads TBR

He's the hottest player in Major League Baseball, the most notorious playboy in all of Manhattan...

And my fake fiancé for the next three months.

I was drunk-dialing my ex the night I met him.

Six-three, sexy as sin and so incredibly rude I could smack the asshole smirk right off his face. Long story short, we got off to a bad start. But when the tabloids interpret our sparring as Drew Maddox "groveling" with a "mystery brunette," his agent presents us both a proposal:

Shacking up as a couple this summer.

It’s an alleged “win-win.” I need to prove to my ex that I'm fine. Drew needs to prove to his team that he's stable. Thanks to his on-field brawling and never-ending lady drama, Drew Maddox has suddenly found himself on the trade block - which means he needs a fast, easy way to show the team that he's settled down.

Hence this fiancé thing. 

Our fights are real, our kisses are fake, and thanks to the nonstop heat between us, I’m starting to mix up all my signs. But whether it’s real or fake, there’s one thing I do know:

I’m already addicted.

OMG. WE'RE 5!!!!

It seems like just yesterday that we stated this blog. We had a passion for books, and wanted to share that with people, beyond just using Goodreads. 

Over the last 5 years, we've grown, changed and expanded in reviewers (as well as lost a few over the years). But the one thing that hasn't changed is our love for books and reviews. 

I don't think we had any exceptions when we started the blog, let alone thought that we'd still be at it 5 years later. 

Throughout the course of us writing this blog, we've had the privilege of meeting some awesome authors, both online and in person. 

When we first started this blog, we only knew each other online. We met and bonded through Goodreads and the love for the same books, romance novels. Since that time, we've become friends outside of reading, chatting pretty much daily and we've even met in person. 

These last 5 years have flown by, but we're looking forward to the future and many more years to come!

COVER REVEAL: Get You Some by Lani Lynn Vale

Today we have the cover reveal for GET YOU SOME by Lani Lynn Vale! Check it out and grab your copy today!

You want some?

She snarls those words at him with barely concealed hostility the moment he arrives at her window to ask for her license and registration.

After a few choice words, he lets her go with not one ticket, but three.

Next time she should check the attitude at the door and realize that he’s a cop, and just doing his job.

Come get some.

Fast forward a week, and he’s still unable to think about anything else but her and her bad attitude—oh, and those sexy lips, angry eyes, and her promise to make his life hell.

Knowing he should stay away, he takes a step back and tries not to think about anything that has to do with those long legs, and that mouth that could be used for much better things than spewing venom.
Then she makes a mistake.

At an interview, she rattles off a random number to use as a reference for a job that she desperately needs, and that number just happens to be Johnny’s. 

She’ll regret being so rude, and one day she’ll think twice when she decides to throw attitude toward a man like him.

Vowing to make her life hell, he decides to have a little fun.

Never get enough.

What he doesn’t expect is to fall for her.

The more Johnny learns about June, the deeper he digs his hole. Soon, he doesn’t know which way is up, and he’s just fine with that.

Over time, he learns that not everyone bothers to dig past her prickly demeanor and get to the woman that lives deeper.

When one too many citizens of Hostel, Texas tries to back her against the wall, he’s had enough.

After all, you don’t mess with what’s his.

HAPPY RELEASE DAY!!!! Law & Beard by Lani Lynn Vale

Today we have the cover reveal for LAW & BEARD by Lani Lynn Vale! Check it out and grab your copy today!


Title: LAW & BEARD 
Series: The Dixie Warden Rejects 
Author: Lani Lynn Vale 
Genre: Romantic Suspense 
Release Day: March 8th

Winnie thinks she has the perfect life.

Two beautiful, healthy children. A police officer husband. A job that she loves. Oh, and let’s not forget that she’s a nationally ranked marathon runner.

Fast forward six months, and her perfect life has imploded.

Winnie finds herself in a completely new world, and this new world is a brutal bitch.

In this new life of hers, her husband is gone. He realizes, at the worst possible time, that he’s no longer in love with her. He’s in love with her best friend. So he leaves, and doesn’t look back.

Her sixteen-year-old daughter is in trouble with the law, and she’s barely making ends meet thanks to losing the job that was keeping her and her tiny family afloat.

Then, the last thing that could make it all bearable, her running, is ripped out from under her, too. Thanks to a spinal stroke that leaves her unable to walk, let alone run, she’s having to relearn how to do the simplest of tasks—such as putting on her own pants.

She’s at the lowest of lows, and the last thing she wants is a sexy, bearded, motorcycle riding alpha to tell her how to live her life.

But Steel Cross never asks her what she wants.


The moment Steel Cross sees Winnie’s daughter steal some shoes for her younger brother, he knows he’s in trouble.

He’s a sucker for misunderstood teens. After all, he was once one himself.

He knows he can’t just walk away, and the moment he sees that troubled teen’s mother, he doesn’t just know it, he feels it. Down to the very bottom of his soul.

With his share of hard knocks, he knows that he shouldn’t step in and make his move on a fellow police officer’s ex. There’s a code, after all, yet he just can’t seem to help himself.

He’s done being the good guy. Sometimes he just wants to be bad.

And Winnie makes him realize that being bad is still kind of good. As long as you’re with the right person.

"I’m a bastard by choice and a heartless one at that, but if there were any part of me that was human, it belonged to her. And nothing…I mean nothing will stand in my way as I lay claim to what’s mine. Mi bella...I'm coming for you.”

-Angelo Benotti

Benotti Family Series: Part One by [The Author, Primrose]The one woman who holds the power to destroy me, bend me happily to her every will; my secret obsession...mi bella...Jasmine. Gone are the curls I've dreamt of latching on to while I bury myself in her wet heat. It's long and flowing in delicate waves; touching the middle of her back. Her face is glowing under that soft brown skin I'd kill...fucking kill to taste. Her lips are painted cherry red and I can't help but wonder what it would feel like to have them wrapped around the length of my dick while those pretty big eyes look up at me for approval. Her face barely has any makeup, letting her natural beauty shine through. The body that will soon belong to me is tightly encased in a white bandage dress that seductively showcases her thick thighs and toned legs. God what I would give to have them wrapped around me. It hugs every curve of the hips I plan on gripping while making love to MY woman. Yes, MY woman; there will be no one but be. If any one of these assholes so much as breathe in her direction, I'll destroy them all. I see how they all look at her; plotting the right approach, mirroring the thoughts I have of claiming her. I’ll be damned before I let it happen. She’s MINE. She’s my future Bella Donna.
