In Flight by Rachael Orman [Audio Review]


All it took was for the right, older man to sit next to me. That flight changed my life. What started out as boring, small talk swiftly changed to flirting. Things got out of hand for a while, but he made sure to leave me with memories I'll never forget.

Then he took me home to meet his twin brother and introduce me to what it's like to have the full attention of two men at the same time.

The Cookies & Cups Cookbook [Review]

Wait Jacqueline, this isn't a romance book. No, this isn't, but did you know I cook (sometimes, more when I wasn't a mother, but I do love to whip something up in the kitchen). The Cookies and Cups Cookbook is more than just sweets, there's savory foods too! I have a major sweet tooth, but since I'm pregnant, I'm watching my sugar intake. Also, husband is gaining weight with me, so I needed to find something healthy and within our life style.

I made the Cashew Chicken minus the Cashew because we are a tree nut free home.  I also added mushrooms. The great thing about this dish is that you can add or take away whatever you want.

Shameless by Lex Martin [REVIEW + GIVEAWAY]

Brady…

What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing.

Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart.
I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.

Katherine…
When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me.

Ladies Man by Katy Evans [REVIEW]

Tahoe Roth.
Irreverent, cocky, playful and naughty.
He’s not the guy you date.
He’s the one night stand.
The one your mother warned you about.
The one your body craves.

You’d think the man who called me succulent would want to strip me down and spread me out on his bed—like he’s done with countless others.

But he passed on my offer….

Just like I’d once passed on his.

He’s wary, like I am.

He’s broken, like I am.

Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward [REVIEW]


It started out like any other morning on the train.


Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle.
