The Proposition Series 1-4 Review!

OK guys I am going to be review multiple books in this one. 4 of them to be exact…. The Proposition Series By, H.M. Ward. Let me just say this about the series as a whole. This series is explosive, passionate, and steamy of course. These books are fast paced and will make your head and heart spin. Promise

The proposition
Vol. 1
h.m. ward
4 stars!!

 Blackmail. Sex. Ferro.

His dark hair, bright eyes, and cocky grin look just the way I remembered. The last time I saw Bryan’s Ferro’s beautiful body, he was naked and shimmering with sweat. This time he’s wearing a tux and a wicked smirk that makes my heart beat too fast. It’s been so long since I’ve seen him, the moment feels supercharged.

But, the words that fall out of his mouth aren’t what I expect and shock me to the core. They aren’t light and pleasant, like ex-lovers who decided to part ways. His tone is clipped, and if his jaw locked any tighter, it would crack. He doesn’t care about my personal life, my recent loss, or my boyfriend.

Bryan makes his intentions clear—if I don’t sleep with him, he’ll ruin me.

My Thoughts…

At first I clearly didn’t read this right because I was confused after it ended so quickly. I was mad in the beginning because I did pay 2.99 for it but I got over so quickly. I loved this story. Well the beginning of it. This is my first Ferro series. I know weird. I probably should have started with the Arrangement but I was hooked to this one right from the beginning.

The story was completely explosive right from the beginning. Bryan was a complete douche through this whole book. He’s mad about something more than the book and I have no idea what it is.

Hallie is a strong character. She’s had a hard life but she keeps going on. She needs a break and I don’t see one coming for her. She stands up to Bryan even when he is being cold and an ass. Plus she has Neil. A complete asshole by the way. I can’t get over the way he even treats her. My god.

I can’t wait for the next book! 

The proposition
Vol. 2
h.m. ward
4 stars!!

There's no doubt in my mind that Bryan Ferro is serious—if I don't sleep with him, he'll destroy me. Everything I've earned will be blown away like dust, and my life will no longer be my own. His demand for just one night rolls into days. He doesn't want me for a one-time fling, it's more than that.

But as I stand there, ready to tell him off, I hear it. The familiar sound, the hesitation, the slight hitch in his voice, and that's what forces me to my knees. It's not Neil, Maggie, or even the money—it's Bryan

My Thoughts…

This next installment is completely insane! These books are small but there is so much going on it makes you head spin. I loved every second of it. We get to see more of Hallie’s relationship with Maggie and what they have gone through together. And then Hallie witnesses something she shouldn’t and now she has to worry about her life being threatened.

Bryan is just as tortured as ever but now we have some suspicion that he is either completely insane or he is using drugs. Who knows. But we get some glimpses of a better Bryan, a nicer Bryan. Something is up with him I can feel it.

Neil is a complete ass. He is planning something. I’m not sure what but he is and I don’t like it. I hate his character. I can’t even believe he acts like this. I have a feeling it’s the money but we will see. 

The proposition
Vol. 3
h.m. ward
4.5 stars!!

Blackmail. Sex. Ferro.

An engaement is the farthest thing from my mind, but as Neil holds up the ring I glance around and notice someone is missing. Maggie. The man had the audacity to invite everyone else except my best friend. Where is she? When I go to find out, I don't like what I discover.

Once, I'd thought I was different from the Ferros and the Campagones, but when it comes down to it--I'm exactly the same.

My Thoughts…

If you thought the first two installments where insane this one takes the cake. OMG. I don’t even know what to say about it. If you had any feeling that Hallie was a push over, well, she just threw that thought completely out the window. This installment keeps you on your toes the entire time. It doesn’t give you a second to breathe. Not one.

I knew there was more to Bryan. I knew he couldn’t be complete ass to someone he supposedly loved that much at one point in time. I won’t tell you what it is but it will leave you heartbroken.

Hallie just can’t catch a break. Ever. She is such a great character I love her.

This installment has shock, heartbreak, friendship, sacrifice, shock, love, and more shock. This installment is like a shot of adrenaline straight to your heart and now we have to wait for the next one to get answers. 

The proposition
Vol. 4
h.m. ward
5 stars!!

Blackmail. Sex. Ferro.

There are some mistakes that are too big to fix. I'll never recover from this one. Damn it, I called Bryan an addict and treated him worse. Maybe it was wrong for him to approach me the way he did. Maybe it wasn't right for Bryan to just take what he wanted, consequences be damned. I can't blame him, though--not now that I know the truth.

My Thoughts…

My heart is in pieces all over the floor. This book was an emotional installment. I have been shocked, enraged, and stunned and now I am just an emotional mess. My husband didn’t know what to do with me.

Bryan breaks my heart. After all this time he loves her and resorts to blackmail to get her back. It’s stupid and mean but kind of romantic when you know the complete circumstances. I am not condoning blackmailing. The romantic part is that he is willing to get her any way possible before it’s too late. He finally opens up to her and we get a small piece of the puzzle.

Hallie is finally coming out of her denial. She never stopped loving Bryan Ferro. Never. She has loved him this whole time and that is why she never questioned the blackmail.

Neil, Jon, and the Aunt are complete assholes. Where does Neil go thinking he can get away with things like that. I don’t understand the hatred Jon has for her. Maybe I need to read the other Ferro books but he’s an ass too. There are some questions with the Aunt. I am so curious to know that story.

You’ll need tissues, a cold shower, something to relieve stress, alcohol and someone to rant to when this is over. So few questions answered so many more left to be answered.

I can’t effing wait for the next one!

Eternal Mixture Review!

Eternal mixture
Shevaun delucia

4.5 stars!!!

If you had the chance to start your life over, would you take it? If you were told you would live for eternity, would you embrace it? If a stranger told you he was your soul mate, would you believe it?

Raina Richmond has played it safe her entire life. She has never broken the rules. That is, until Brent Alexander walked straight into her life, causing havoc. Turning her world upside down.

Brent is the new kid in town. He is every girl’s fantasy: adorable, charming, chiseled, and the typical boy Raina usually steers clear of. But there is just something about him she can’t seem to resist. Safe is no longer an option for her. For him, she breaks all the rules.

What she doesn’t realize is that he holds the key to her past, present, and future. Once he reveals the reasons behind their irrevocable connection, she will unlock the answers to all of her questions, and her life as she knows it will never be the same again.

My thoughts…..

“He is like a drug to me, and I am forever addicted.”

This book was definitely interesting. I liked this semi new take on immortals. It seemed like a spin-off of Evermore. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a refreshing read. I love soul-mate stories. They are probably my favorites to read. Being the hopeless romantic that I am, having one person that you love and loves you no matter what is pretty amazing. A love that is so encompassing that there is no denying it. There is something about knowing there is one person out there for you that is perfect is pretty romantic. I loved this element of the story.

We open with Raina in her high school interacting with her friends. There is a new kid in school and her reaction to the situation is pretty priceless. She wants nothing to do with the gossip, the boy, nothing. She has no interest in laying her eyes on him no matter what the other people are saying. Raina was a strong character, a person who knew who she was. Until Brent walked into her life. It was pretty funny that she tried to fight the connection anyway possible in the beginning. Don’t the characters know by now you can’t do that. Hahaha. After a little while it became frustrating but before it got to the point of no return she gave in and it was magic.

Brent was another great leading man. He walked right up to her and pretty much told her he was waiting for her. He beat around the bush but I mean I knew what he was trying to say. He made me so mad with the whole Casey thing. I’m glad that didn’t last long. Guys should no making us jealous with the one person we absolutely hate in high school does the opposite of what they are trying to accomplish. He was a patient and understanding character too, which made him even better. I mean he has been waiting forever and he didn’t mind waiting for her to work through it.

Some of the writing bothered me a little bit but I was able to overlook it. There is nothing wrong with it, it just isn’t something that particularly enjoy. There were just too many sentences describing the same things over and over again. There was only one other thing that bothered me and that was the addition of Jason. I understand him as a bad guy but I don’t need another love triangle. When you set it up as sol-mates it needs to stay that way. I mean it does but if there is another book I hope it stays that way.

I hope there is another book. I feel like we got to know the characters and the Immortal story but there was never a real element of danger that was supposed to be felt near the end. It felt like the author set it up and then the next page ended it. The story could end but I feel like there is more to tell.

Anyways if there is another one I will be reading it!

Make It A Double Review!

Make it a double
Sawyer Bennett
5 lovely stars!!!!!

Brody Markham has endured a nightmare, spending the last five years in prison and losing everything that was dear to him. Now he’s back home, trying to survive in a world he doesn’t recognize anymore. While his family and friends desperately try to reach through to him, he shelters himself further and further away from their love.

Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, she is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way that money just can’t buy.

Maybe it’s that she recognizes in Brody some of the same characteristics she sees in her homeless wards, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.

While Brody struggles to surface from the darkness, Alyssa tries to protect her heart in case he’s not willing to accept the light that she offers him.

My Thoughts….

“She represents everything that could possibly be good in my life now, and while it scares the shit out of me, I’m helplessly drawn to it. It makes me hopeful.”

This book was so great that I had to take a few minutes before I even tried to write this review. This book was tragic and beautiful. I don’t think there was one thing that I didn’t like about this book, which is extremely rare. Alyssa is nothing that Brody expects her to be and everything that he needs. Brody is a hot mess, literally, and Alyssa is probably the only person who can help him see the beauty that life has to offer again. But he has to be willing to except it, or her heart and everything she worked for with him is shattered.

“Yes, that was my heart that sighed, because Brody is beautiful. He’s been wrenched and broken, but he’s still so beautiful inside.”

Alyssa Myers is different than all of the other rich people you see out there. Her parents are ashamed of her but Alyssa is even more ashamed of the life that they live. She tries to use all of her trust fund to build the best no-kill shelter she can. She does most of the work herself and she loves it.

Alyssa’s character is pretty amazing. She works hard to care for animals that have nowhere else to go. Her character is also very brave. She goes against everything she has grown up with and just wants to be herself. She takes care of animals and spends time with her best friends. The way she takes care of Brody, even after he treats her like shit, is honorable. She knows he is having a hard time but she keeps trying anyway. She sees the real Brody and has no choice but to fall in love with him.

“For a moment, Brody doesn’t move, and I have all sorts of pornographic images shoot through my head.”

Brody Markham has had some problems. And that is putting it lightly. He has spent the last five years in jail for vehicular manslaughter. He knows what he did was wrong and he takes his punishment like he should. His time in jail has left him broken and dark. He has been away for five long years and he can’t connect with his family, his ex-girlfriend drops him the minute he goes in, and now there is another rich girl he wants nothing to do with.

Is she some freakin’ ray of sunshine or something that I should soak up and learn from?”

Brody wants nothing to do with Alyssa. The last rich girl he let in broke his heart and he won’t do it again. What happened to Brody was heartbreaking. His character starts out dark and disconnected. He can’t seem to be out in public or hang around his family and friends anymore. Alyssa changes all that for him. She sees him for what he really is and once he starts to take the much needed help his life starts to come back into focus. He now works somewhere he loves and he has found the perfect girl to fall in love with. He promises never to be willing to put someone else’s life before his again but again Alyssa changes all that.

This book was a really fun read. The characters have great chemistry and they seem to bring the best out in each other. They work well together. I loved all of the other characters too. I can’t wait to read the first one. I immediately went and bought that. Brody makes this book perfect so we will see if his brother can win me over too!

Impulsion Reveal!

Title: Impulsion
Author: Jamie Magee   
Genre: New Adult
Reveal Host: Lady Amber's Tours


With a glance Wyatt Doran stole Harley Tatum’s heart. With each summer that passed, touch by touch, they robbed each other’s innocence, birthing a love that was so deep that it scorched within. Without warning, they were ripped from the clutches of each other, placed in lives that were worlds apart. Only to cross paths after a freak accident where Harley’s horse rig was flipped. An accident that Wyatt Doran, from fire station 32, responded.

The tension was immediate, the emotions were raw. One breath told them they were not the same as before, one touch…changed their world.


His fingertips slowly moved down her face, down her neck. He noticed how all the tension in her body drifted away, how her eyes slowly closed, the long, deep breaths that were causing her chest to rise and fall.

“The sight of you brought it all back, past and present colliding with a magnitude that is so great…that I have no choice but to stop and realize that the only thing holding us back this go ‘round is us.”

He reached his arm around her waist and pulled her body against his, causing her eyes to fly open, those breaths to come even faster. “And Harley, I’m going to fight like hell for you. And as soon as I make you mine again, I will die before I ever let anyone take you from me again.” His hand rose to her face, his thumb grazed her flesh, his eyes dipped to her lips, then met her gaze once more. “You’re the only woman I have ever loved. That I ever will love.”

All at once, they both moved forward, their lips connecting as if they were molded from one source, a well-practiced dance of flesh, the perfect rhythm, teasing brushes of tongues that knew just when to fall into a deeper kiss, a kiss that was so devouring that all thought, all reason vanished. The impulse of the heart, that deep passion that lies dormant within erupted to a euphoria that made it impossible to fathom life outside of that very instant.

The fun non boring Bio :)

I'm an obsessive daydreamer. Lover of loud alternative music. Addicted to Red Bull. I love to laugh until it hurts. Fall is my favorite season. Black is my favorite 'shade.' Strong believer in the saying: there is a reason for everything, therefore I search for 'marked moments' every moment of everyday...and I find them. Life is beautiful!

Boring one....

Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she'd never been, introduce her to people she's never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.
