Emily Rampling thought she understood the nature of power.

But she didn't know the unexpected forms power could take, bending and adapting to suit its needs.

She wasn't aware of the ways power could infiltrate unnoticed into the highest echelons of government, soaking the most hallowed chambers with its influence.

She didn't realize the methods in which power could weave an invisible fabric that manipulated society with hidden secrets and unannounced agendas.

In fact, Emily Rampling didn't understand anything at all about the nature of power.

But she was about to find out.

About the ways power could pulse.

About the ways power could penetrate.

About the ways power could PERVADE.

Wow! I loved this book!!! Sometimes I feel stuck on the four star books. They are good.....great even but they aren’t......just they aren’t Five stars. Ya know? For me, it needs that something extra. Something that makes me excited to read and sad when it ends. This book is definitely that book. I can’t wait to get part two!!!!

Emily is pretty badass. She’s doing things alone and trying to stay in her lane and make something of herself being a Violinist. She’s smart and witty and stands up for her values.

Xander is mysterious and sweet. He’s cute, treats Emily like a princess and they have a great life together. After being together for six months they are in love and everything’s great.

James enters their lives and disrupts everything. Like seriously blows it all up! He’s dominate, good-looking and mean. But he has a soft spot for Xander and Emily. The three have a lot to learn about each other.

This book was riveting, exciting and HOT!!! I couldn’t put it down and didn’t want too. I’m anxiously waiting the second one!!

Everything from the writing to the characters to the story line. It’s perfect!!!!

Very Highly Recommend!!!!

Needing To Love You (Houston's Finest, #2) by Erin Rylie: Blog Tour + Review

Title: Needing To Love You  
Series: Houston's Finest, #2 
Author: Erin Rylie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publish Date: April 12, 2019

Carlos Ramirez has always prided himself on two things: being damn good at his job on the Houston police force and being able to land any woman he wants. When a devastating car accident leaves him crippled and in excruciating pain, he begins to rely too heavily on his prescription painkillers. The only person who can help him heal is the only woman who has ever rejected him—and on more than one occasion. Living with Kelsey while he works through physical therapy wasn’t anything he ever expected to happen, but it might just be what he needs.

After a divorce that left her doubting her ability to love, Kelsey Byrne wants nothing to do with relationships. Unfortunately for her, the only man she could see herself loving needs a place to live and help while he recovers. She had a hard time pushing him away after a one-night stand, so how can she possibly keep him at arm’s length when he’s in her house every day, playing with her son, cooking her meals, and leaving her cute notes every morning? Carlos may be working his way into her heart one sweet gesture at a time, but can she give him everything knowing that she’s more than a little broken inside?
I am newbie when it comes to Erin Rylie and I was quite surprised to see that she is new on the scene herself. I was taken by surprise by this book and really had no clue that it is part of a series. I definitely need to go back and read the first in the series. 

Carlos has had an unfortunate accident that has left him with a lengthy recovery. Not wanting to move in with his mom he moves in with his “friend.”

Kelsey has just gone through a divorce and that has left her with a sense of not being able to love. Carlos has been a great friend but one night of passion is always in the back of Kelsey’s mind. She never gives in to Carlos’ advances and tries to keep it in the friend zone. That is until she takes him in to nurse him back to health. 

This book had my attention from the beginning, and I had plenty of laugh out loud moments. I really loved Carlos’ personality and his raw emotions. Kelsey had her issues too so this was kind of beautiful to read and see everything mesh together. I am excited to see what Ms Rylie has in store for us next!! 

I'm a Montana born, Texas raised New Jersey transplant with a degree in hospitality. At 29 years old, I decided it was finally time for me to pursue my real passion in life - writing. I've been writing princess stories and LOTR fan-fiction since I was in middle school, so the transition into romance has been fun!

When I'm not writing, I'm reading (fantasy, sci-fi and romance are my genres) or working. I'm currently obsessed with Brooklyn Nine Nine which should tell you all you need to know about my sense of humor.

Finally, I am 100% an old cat lady. My cats Socks and Kaz are little weirdos and I love them more than most people.

Best of intentions by LK Farlow

Nate Reynolds is everything I shouldn’t want. Aside from being my best friend’s older brother, he’s a cocky, smooth-talking, panty-dropping playboy of a cop. And yet, I’m helplessly drawn to him.

His charm and good looks reduce me to a fumbling, mumbling teenaged version of myself, which pretty much guarantees that nothing will ever come of my silly crush.

Until the night of my best friend’s wedding.

Jenny Jones is the definition of innocence. She’s also my little sister’s best friend, making her completely off limits. She’s a forever kind of girl with hearts in her eyes, where I’ve always been more of a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy.

Until a night spent between the sheets with her has me questioning everything I thought I wanted.

I tried my hardest to stay away, but you know what they say about the best intentions . . .

I love this book. One I get to visit old friends from Best Laid Plans and two. I was hoping to hear her story.
First, I love Jenny. She respects herself and that’s really important to me. I love that we have the same “affliction,” so I was able to identify with her. I love that she gained confidence as the book wore on.
Nate is flawsome. He is awesome because of his flaws. He’s a great brother, friend and a spectacular uncle. They couldn’t be any cuter together.
It’s a sweet, funny and steamy story (That Nate is something else, in the best way of course).

I really hope that Nates best friend gets his own story. 

Name’s Kate, but I write as LK, and like it says, I’m a small town girl with a love for words. Like, really, that pretty much sums it up.

Kidding. I’m kidding.

I’m a life-long South Alabama native, with a love for all things Southern. From the accent (which I’m strangely lacking) to the food, it just makes my heart happy.

I have the most amazing husband on the planet, and 3 scrumpalicious Littles—for real, my fam jam is the best.

I’ve always loved reading and writing. So, my free time is filled with all things books and words.

A few fun facts:
