Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Decidently Dirty with ALL the Feels Read!!! Oh boy, did this book keep me up late at night reading!!! Loved it, loved it, loved it!!

This is the first Stacey Lynn book I’ve read and I can’t begin to express how much I loved this book. I was blown away by the storyline, the naughty bits, and how well crafted it was.

Connor was the right amount of cocky, detached jock that grew at the right emotional speed and displayed the perfect vulnerability that made him ultra irresistible.

Brenna was also the perfect mix of innocent wrapped with enough sultry sinner to keep Conner’s interest, yet just enough emotional stuntness to also grow right along with him.

These two were the perfect combination for their non-relationship/relationship (whatever they were calling it day by day) and it was glorious to watch them both come out of their cocoons. Whether it came to dating or bedroom skills this couple continued to blow me away with how they handled situations.

Their similarities and differences pulled me in and made this a page turner late into the night.

Cocky Player is a must read and can be read as a complete standalone (it was for me since this was my very first, but won’t be my last).

Review – Just Roommates by Charity Ferrell

Just Roommates; Blue Beech #5 (Series)
by Charity Ferrell (Author)

This review is from: September 11, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

A slow burn romance, that covers enemies to friends to roommates to lovers. Add in a splash of age-gap and family drama, this contemporary romance has a bit of everything to satisfy every Blue Beech lover.

I think what I love the most about Charity Ferrell books is that she doesn’t shy away from tough topics. Her past Blue Beech books have covered things like spouse loss, miscarriage, losing a family member, and more. In Just Roommates we meet Sierra, Kyle’s little sister whom we meet in the previous book, Just Neighbors. Sierra and Maliki bring their own kind of trouble and romance to the Blue Beech group.

In the beginning of the book we get a glimpse of the past, a quite humorous at times, look at Sierra sneaking into Maliki’s bar when she is underage. He always finds her, even given her best attempts at hiding, and kicks her out. That is until she reaches the legal drinking age and that is the moment their friendship actually begins. This is the moment the story really begins and where Sierra changes from a young girl into something more.

Maliki holds a special place in his….bar for Sierra. He’s never had a serious relationship or perhaps he might consider Sierra the only one he would try with, but given that his parents never really showed him what a relationship looked like, he doesn’t know. When Sierra eventually shows up engaged and then sends him an invitation to her wedding, he considers that spot in his….bar….permanently closed.

However, when Sierra’s marriage lasts all of three months, yeah it barely passed the honeymoon and ink drying on their license. She does the only thing she could think of…she runs to her best friend, Maliki. He offers up his spare room, allowing her to escape the sham of a marriage she’s found herself in.

This puts them in all kinds of new predicaments which really brings the story full steam ahead. Can Maliki and Sierra just be roommates or will they eventually fall to the chemistry that has been pulling them together for years? Only time will tell if it builds a future or rips their friendship apart.

If you love the Blue Beech stories, you will love this new addition.

Need You Now by Molly O’Keefe

Release Date: September 9, 2019

Need You Now Cover.jpg

Need You Now, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Molly O’Keefe.


I have loved Rosa since I met her in high school English, even though the odds have always been stacked against us. She is the child of criminals, resigned to a bleak future. I’m the heir to a successful construction company and am not afraid to go after what I want.

And I want Rosa. Always and forever.


I broke the law to make sure Marco got custody of our daughter, and I paid the price. But now that I’m out of jail, I’m terrified my ugly past might bleed into our daughter’s future.

The only way to ensure that doesn’t happen is staying far away from both of them.

But Marco isn’t letting me run from him. Not again.

Blog Tour Teaser.jpg


He looked at me across the room and slowly shook his head. “I don’t want to love you,” he said.

“I know.”

“Half the time I hate you.”

“I know.”

He looked away from me, his hands in fists, and I could feel the tension across the room, the fragile control he had on himself. How he was barely holding on. And I knew that he would never hurt me. The thing he was trying to stop himself from doing was touch me.

“I’m leaving,” he said and crossed the room in three angry steps. Everything in me told me to get out of the way. To let him go. But I didn’t. I stood right in front of the door in my gold vest and hot pants.

His face was flushed. “Get out of my way,” he said, and my mouth was full, my throat closed, and I shook my head. “Don’t make me,” he said. “Don’t make me touch you.”

It was exactly what I was doing, because I would take his touch any way I could get it.

“Fuck, Rosa,” he groaned. “Fuck you.”

And he put his hands around my arms and pulled me up and into his body so my breasts touched his chest, and between my legs I felt the hard pressure of him. I gasped and he turned. I expected him to let me go. I expected him to shove me away but he didn’t. Oh god, he didn’t. He lifted me off my feet and took two steps forward, pushing me against the wall. Not gently. But not rough. And then he leaned against me, his entire body against mine. And I was electrified. Every inch of my skin burned where it touched his.

I burned so hot I burned right through all the years. All the pain fell away and it was just us. Marco and me and the desire so pure it kept changing the course of both our lives.

He held himself so still, so carefully, and he was going to walk away. I knew he was. He would walk away and this moment would never happen again.

“Please,” I begged, because it was all I had left. No more pride. No more distance. I was only need.
