On My Shelf: The Unidentified Redhead by: Alice Clayton

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.



I have heard wonderful things about this book and author but I have yet to make time for it. It sounds hysterical and I feel like I will love it, but we all know how it goes, so many books so little time. 

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Mini Review: The Claiming (Submissive #8.5) by: Tara Sue Me

Release Date: September 20, 2016
from InterMix
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
"The New York Times bestselling author of the Submissive series returns to the story started in The
Master with a tantalizing new novella about passion, play, and possession...

Submitting is just the beginning...

Sasha Blake never thought her emotional wounds would heal—that they were a part of her just like her physical scars. But that was before Cole Johnson’s boundless love and overwhelmingly sexy control set her free, unleashing a confident side that she never knew she had. He’s more than just her Master; he’s her world. And she’ll do anything he asks...

Cole’s days of restless wandering are done—he’s found everything he needs in Sasha. Now, it’s time to make it official. When his childhood home in England goes up for sale, he realizes the old estate is the perfect place to claim Sasha as his own, and the ideal opportunity to show her just how much she means to him.

As Sasha, Cole, and their closest friends from their Partners in Play community descend on the British countryside for a titillating adult vacation, the submissives and Dominants alike will test their boundaries—and have an adventure none of them will ever forget..."

My Thoughts:

I’ve been reading this series for a while now and I’m always surprised by how it continues to deliver. This was a fun and steamy little novella that I devoured in a few short hours. It is a nice addition to the series and even though it is short it adds to the characters development and moves the overall story along.

It was so nice seeing how far Cole and Sasha have come. They started out so unlikely and they have become such a strong couple. Their chemistry is fantastic and it’s so great seeing them together. I also liked catching up with Abby and Nathaniel and Julie and Daniel again. This is such a great group of characters and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of them.

All in all, The Claiming was a really quick and fun read and is a nice little treat for fans of the series. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next installment now.

Waiting On Wednesday #199: Carve The Mark by: Veronica Roth

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine
It spotlilghts upcoming releases that we are dying to read.

Add To Goodreads
"On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not — their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?

Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power — something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.


Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuve, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive — no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive — or to destroy one another. " 

I love this cover and cannot wait for a new series from Roth!

Carve The Mark will be released on January 17, 2017.
What are you waiting on?

Release Day Blast: Levi's Blue by: M. Leighton (Review & Teasers)

Are you ready to #unzip #LevisBlue?

Levi's Blue by M. Leighton is LIVE!

From the New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author, M. Leighton, comes a brand new super sexy standalone that is guaranteed to make you sweat and make you swoon.

Four beautiful days. Three steamy nights. One breathtaking love.
Levi Michelson. He wanted four dates. Four opportunities to prove I could trust him. Four chances to change my mind about him.
I agreed.
Probably not my smartest decision. He was everything I knew to avoid—gorgeous, charming, sexy as hell—but I couldn’t help myself. When he touched me the whole world disappeared. I should’ve known I could lose myself to him, that he could be the one man to destroy me.
I guess it’s true what they say—some things are too good to be true. And Levi Michaelson might just be one of them.

My Thoughts:

We all know I’m a certified M. Leighton fan girl, so I’m sure this isn’t really a surprise, but I loved Levi’s Blue. Levi’s Blue is vintage M. Leighton. It feels like some of her earlier contemporaries, yet it still stands out. It’s very much its own story but it has the feel of Down To You and The Wild Ones. It’s steamy and heartbreaking and swoony and emotional and lighthearted all in one.

Probably the best thing about the book is the characters. Levi and Evie are both wonderful. I adore Evie and love her even more for everything she has endured. And well, Levi is ridiculously easy to fall for. And together their chemistry is off the charts. They make one another better. Also, their banter is phenomenal. Some of my favorite banter ever. Their conversations had me laughing out loud and you know they would be tough to keep up with in person. And I can’t forget to mention Cherelyn. I adore strong female friendships and I love Cherelyn and Evie’s relationship. They are their own little family.

As with any of Michelle’s books she delivers the steam. Levi and Evie’s chemistry is off the charts. Have a glass of water handy as you read. But as steamy as it is, it’s also sweet. I loved watching these two fall for one another and Levi knows how to make anyone swoon.

Levi’s Blue is a great read and any contemporary romance fan is sure to love this one. It’s addictive and so difficult to put down and you’ll swoon from beginning to end.
