"Triple #teXXXt" [The FlirtChat Series, Book 2] by Sarwah Creed
(Originally published as "Triple Sext" [Book 4 in the Accidental Stepbrother Series], which is what it was called when this reviewer read it.)

Author's Book Description : Is my perfect match on campus one guy or three?
I had a filthy fantasy. One so bad that the night before going to college, I had the wildest dream about the all-star football player falling at my feet. I was brought down to reality as I soon found out that life at NYU didn’t turn out the way that I hoped. All the social clubs that I joined were a bust and my roommate turned out to be far from my friend, but a bully that I needed to get as far away from as possible.
Suddenly, I got a text.
Not any ordinary text, but one so dirty that it drove my mind wild.
It messed with me.
So, I responded.
And that’s how the texting relationship started and as the texts got dirtier there was only one thing on my mind... who was this guy?
Or was it three guys?

The message tone changed depending on the time of day.
The ones I got first thing in the morning, were so hot that they could turn steel bars into pools of molten metal.
The ones in the afternoon were even better but just... different.
And the texts I got in the evening were so damn dirty I could barely sleep without putting my hands between my thighs.
They were so addictive that I agreed to meet this Casanova of the text world. I had one worry, though.
What if it was three guys?
What was I going to do with all three of them at once?


Author´s Note:
Triple #teXXXt was previously called Triple Sext. It has no new content and it is a stand-alone reverse harem with a mixture of bullying, romance, humor, and even suspense. There are multiple partner scenes, so make sure that not only is your Kindle ready, but you have a towel nearby too as you read this standalone HEA.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! A girl goes to college to turn into the woman she wants to be and gets a whole lot more than she originally bargained for in terms of love and friendship.

This is another reread that I reread because I lost my original book review & rating. However, it is one that I was really excited to read as I remembered really enjoying it when I first read it in September 2019. It is not a bully romance for me because the bully in this romance is not the hero(es), yet it does have a bit of a twisted plot in terms of how Celia gets involved with the identical triplet brothers (Colin, Grant, & Keith).

With that being said,

"Cramming Her Candy Bag" by Farrah Paige

Author's Book Description : I was starting to think my boyfriend was a waste of time.
And I had to learn the hard way that he wasn’t worth it.

When he cheated on me with two girls, I finally got the message.
At least I have a great job.
My four HOT bosses are so good to me.
Too bad the only way I'll ever be with them is in my dreams.
That was until the office Halloween party.
They each had something to tell me. And they all had something to give me.
Is it the dress or my new found confidence that draws them irresistibly to me?
I don't want to come between them, but it will break my heart to choose.

How does one girl choose between four successful and competitive men?
Could getting everything I want be the worst thing that could happen to me?

Cramming Her Candy Bag is a full length standalone reverse harem romance in which four men focus on pleasuring one lucky lady emotionally and physically - no swords cross and it's all about her. It doesn't have a cliffhanger or any cheating. It does have a very happy ever after, though.

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. Not long after breaking up with her boyfriend, Melanie finds out how a sexual relationship would be with her four diverse bosses. But will it lead to something more or just a night of passionate fun?

This is one of the novels that I am rereading as I had lost my previous written review of it ... but I do recall that I had loved its cover and I had thought that this novel’s plotline held a touch of fantasy in it, especially in regard to Melanie finding her Halloween costume at the Used Clothing type of Store. And for all of my feelings on that still holds true as I enjoyed those aspects of this novel. HOWEVER ...

"Hanna And The Hot Hockey Gods" by Dizzy Hooper

Author's Book Description : Three bad boy hockey players. One figure skater in need of some stress relief. Let the games begin…

As a last minute addition to the figure skating team, I knew I was in for some hazing, but this is ridiculous. I walk in on my roommate doing the deed on my bed.

With nowhere to go, I end up wandering the halls, only to run into three super hot members of the men's ice hockey team. There's the team captain, Zeke, who gives me the chills. Sensitive Aaron. And filthy-mouthed, uber-competitive Brent.

These bad boy forwards have a reputation—and a goal. They want a girl to celebrate their win with.

Who am I to say no?

It's just a night of no-strings fun. They bring my body to heights I never knew were possible, and I'm pretty sure I rock their world.

Turns out, hockey players are a superstitious bunch. If they win again, they want me back.

Before I know it, we're celebrating together after every game. I'm not sure if it's the stress relief or the new confidence they've given me, but I'm skating better than I ever have before. We all have gold in our sights.

But the games are coming to a close. There's no future for an underdog figure skater and three hot hockey gods out there in the real world.

Or is there…?

"Hanna And The Hot Hockey Gods" is a complete, STANDALONE reverse harem romance, featuring dirty talking alpha males and a guaranteed HEA. No cheating, no cliffhangers!

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! Hanna recently got added to as a last-minute spot on the US women’s figure skating team for something like the Olympics, and it seems everyone really doesn’t want her there. Yet after an unusual exchange with her roommate Hanna meets three hockey players that just might change her life, or at least this week-long event, for good ... if only she’s willing to make the best of it all ...

If you are looking for HOT ultra-smutty (sometimes gangbang style) read that also has a LOT OF HEART too, then this is the novel is the perfect pick for you!

"Manipulated" [Hammered Series, Book 3] by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott

Author's Book Description : My name is Owen Blackwell, and I’m currently in recovery.

Not from what you think, though I do enjoy a bit of whiskey.

No, my issue is that I fell foolishly in love with my best friend. Oh, and she’s getting married.

So, in my eternal stupidity, I hooked up with a woman at our annual masquerade ball. You know what they say—the best way to get over a woman is to get under another.

Who is this woman, you ask? Calliope Templeton. She's unlike any other I’ve ever met. And believe me, as the guitarist for Hammered—only the biggest selling rock band out there right now—I’ve met quite a few.

Now I have to figure out how to convince her we’re more than just a one-night stand. She’s supposed to be my happily ever after.

And if necessary, I'm willing to show her just how resourceful one determined Irishman can be...

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! Callie (Calliope) has been trying to bring her life together ever since her divorce about a year ago, now she lands a job that could bring her photography career into the big time. Yet will Owen, the sexy bassist from the band she’s working with, add to her newfound happiness or brake everything she has worked so hard to accomplish?

I had never read this series before, but the authors have it set into their Oblivion Series’ world, and I had read a book or two from that “world” already, so I had a feeling I would enjoy this one. And I am happy to say I did enjoy it.

"Fake" [West Hollywood Series, Book 1] by Kylie Scott

Author's Book Description : The newest romance from New York Times bestselling, Audie Award winning author Kylie Scott!

He walks the red carpet. She’s more familiar with vacuuming one.

When a scandal tarnishes the reputation of hot as hell A-lister, Patrick Walsh, he needs a reputation rescue, pronto.

Enter waitress Norah Peers–a nobody who’s average with a capital A. She’s available, dependable, and has sworn off men for the rest of her natural born life. In other words: the perfect match for a no-strings fake romance.

For the right amount of money, she can avoid waitressing and play the part of his dependable down-to-earth girlfriend. What she can’t avoid–dammit–is the growing steam between them.

But being hounded by the paparazzi and having her life dissected on social media is a panic attack in the making. And while Patrick might be a charming rogue on screen, in real life he’s a six-foot-two confusing, gorgeous, brooding grump, who keeps her at a distance . . . but also makes her feel like this bond between them might be more than just an act.

Being dumped on cue should be no big deal. Except being fake with Patrick is the realist relationship Norah has ever had. What’s a girl to do, but flip the script, and ask for a re-match made in Hollywood?

“Fake kept me up late reading because I could not put this story down. I adored Patrick and Norah, the fun, the banter … all the sweetness. Not to mention the heat! Kylie Scott delivers again!" – Carly Phillips, New York Times bestselling author

“Kylie Scott has been one of my favorite authors for years. Her way with words, and her ability to make me fall in love with men I know I shouldn’t but do, anyways has always been the recipe for the perfect read for me. I absolutely loved Fake, and it was easy with brooding alpha Patrick and quirky lovable Norah. The two of them together are a match made in book heaven. I couldn’t put this book down once I started and know everyone will feel the same.” – Aurora Rose Reynolds, New York Times bestselling author

“Kylie Scott proves once again why she is one of my auto-buy authors. Fake is an absolute delight . . . for every woman who wished her celebrity crush would fall madly in love with her. Fake is romance gold from one of the genre’s best!” – Naima Simone, USA Today bestselling author

"Grumpy, megastar hero whose rare smiles bring out all the warm and fuzzies, and the upbeat, every girl heroine he never saw coming." – Ally Blake

#BlogTour - Let Love Rule by Jacqueline Simon Gunn / @DrJSimonGunn | Book Release, Spreading the Word & GC #Giveaways @SDSXXTours



Let Love Rule
Where You'll Land Book 3
by Jacqueline Simon Gunn
Genre: Contemporary Romance


From award-winning author Jacqueline Simon Gunn comes the long-awaited third book in her Where You’ll Land series, a story about trauma, healing, love and discovering who we are by the choices we make.

Will Easton had been running from old wounds for too long when a tragedy sends him to his hometown, offering him the opportunity to revisit his past and learn to trust again. Once back at graduate school, he vows to take more risks, especially with his heart. When he meets Rachel, he is immediately drawn to her. But there are two problems: She’s still married, and he feels an obligation to his on-again/off-again girlfriend who stood by him. No matter how much he wants to be loyal, he feels a strong pull toward this new woman.

Rachel Dale finally found the strength to cut the cord to her cheating husband. When she meets Will, she finds herself irresistibly attracted to him. But he appears to have a girlfriend, and she refuses to become the other woman in someone else’s story. Besides, learning to trust another man is going to be hard. Trusting herself and her judgment after her husband’s betrayals is even harder. Meanwhile, her soon-to-be-ex is not letting her go easily. He could destroy any chance she and Will might have... if he ever leaves his girlfriend.

As Will and Rachel struggle to make the right choices, they both learn that saying they’ll trust again doesn’t mean it’ll be easy. In this complex, psychological romance, the most important choices are the ones that break the rules.

Let Love Rule can be read as a stand-alone.

About WITH THIS CAKE


Cheery baker dreams of finding Mr. Right…


When your last name is Baker, it’s really only a matter of time before it also becomes your job title. Some might see it as a self-fulfilling prophecy, but for Leanna, being the go-to baker for Meet Me at the Altar is a dream come true. There’s nothing she loves more than to create the perfect desserts to help couples celebrate their big days. But despite what they say about the way to a man’s heart being through his stomach, Leanna has yet to lure her perfect man with her sweet treats.


Uptight workaholic dreams of being left alone…


If Brody King is going to take time off, he would much rather it be to train for his triathlon and not his brother’s engagement party. It would be one thing if it was just a regular party, but no, his brother and his bride-to-be had to go over the top and plan a full week of family togetherness and ridiculous wedding games. There’s no way he’s going to survive it.


When Brody crashes into Leanna and a hundred cupcakes are ruined, he does the only thing he can–he offers to help her make more. All it takes is a few cups of sugar and a dash of vanilla before Brody is craving not just Leanna’s sweet treats, but the baker herself.

"Sugar & Spice" [Spicetopia Series, Book 1] by Phoebe Alexander

Author's Book Description : A billionaire undercover boss.
A single mom who’s totally off limits.
Temptation never looked so sweet...


Cy Sweet has always been the black sheep of his family, which is probably why he was chosen to go Undercover Boss in Sweetopia, his family’s theme park. Enticed by his father’s bribe, he dons an apron to serve pastries in Cotton Candy Castle, one of the park’s most popular attractions.

He’s tempted to blow his cover when he meets The Red Velvet Queen. Sure, she’s a costumed character and the jewels in her crown are fake, but she’s absolutely breathtaking. His desire only grows when he invents a baker’s dozen reasons to visit her every day…enough visits to discover her sweetness comes with a side of spice.

But they’re both in disguise. The Queen is actually single mom Jolie Cox, who relentlessly struggles to make a living for herself and her sons. And Cy is actually her boss, not to mention heir to the corporate empire she despises.

What will happen when their identities are finally unmasked?

Sugar & Spice is Book 1 of the Spicetopia Series. Though the series can be read in any order, here is the preferred reading order:
Book 1: Sugar & Spice (Cy and Jolie's story)
Book 2: Virtue & Vice (Moon and Katja's story)
Book 3: Fire & Ice (Neve and Enya’s story)
Book 4: Naughty & Nice (Micah and Natalie’s story)
Book 5: Dares & Dice (Tyler and Makenna's story)

It is Thanksgiving Day (the USA version of it at least) today! The tradition on my blog is to post a list of ALL the books I've read thus far this year that I've given my highest ratings to (5 out of 5 stars) today, which means I'm VERY Thankful for finding/reading them!

HOWEVER -- and it is a BIG HOWEVER -- this year has been hard for everyone. Myself included when it comes to promoting the books I have been reviewing. As if you look at my 2017 & 2018 Thankful Book Lists you'll see within my top write-up (like this one) that I say something along the lines of "because of life I have reviews but have yet to fully post them yet." This year is a LITTLE different because though ... that is still true ... my reviews ARE backlogged ... I had a catastrophe in March 2020 where I LOST ALL OF MY PREVIOUS REVIEWS. Yeah. If you want to hear ALL about it click here. BUT for 2020 specifically I was trying gather some "reading stats" for you, so out of those 19 books I know that 5 that I have no reviews for need to be on this list because I had rated them 5 out of 5 stars!

Yes this list is odd BUT other than the top three books within this list the others DO have reviews for them -- FULL REVIEWS COMING SOON -- so CHECK IT OUT! I DO RECOMMEND ALL OF THESE NOVELS!!

➡️ Also for the THIRD year running I have a We Are Thankful For Books collab video (at the bottom of this post) for you. In the video you'll see 5 Youtubers (including myself) talk about the books they are thankful for reading this year. Enjoy! 📚🥧
