What a wonderful story!!!!

Rhys & Melanie….wow! Billionaire and basically homeless can come together for an amazing romantic story. It's a modern day Cinderella!

There are secrets tho….and a little girl that is just amazingly adorable and the apple of her father’s eye. Rhys has serious trust issues when it comes to her and who is around her. There have been numerous nannies over the years but none can handle him. None have been able to take care of his little girl and be able to deal with his moods. That is until….

Melanie, or Mel, works in a diner and sleeps on a friends couch. That is until she gets kicked out. With no where to live, and Rhys’ determination, she ends up going from a crapy apartment to a high rise penthouse looking after a wonderful little girl. 

She has secrets of her own too. Both are going to have to learn to trust each other and open up to each other. The story and the writing are wonderful but it’s the characters I loved the most about this book. Just amazing!!

Highly Recommend!!

Maya Hughes has always loved romance novels. One look at her Kindle is confirmation. She started writing her first romance novel while pregnant with her third child and she hasn’t looked back. Now, her romance writing addiction has replaced her romance reading addiction.

You can find her writing on her foldable keyboard and phone anytime inspiration strikes. Her sweet and steamy stories range from rockstars to small towns and everything in between. When she’s not writing, she’s playing with her three kids, running errands or vegging on the couch with the love of her life and biggest fan, her husband.

Reservations by: Kindle Alexander - Blog Tour

Title: Reservations
Author: Kindle Alexander
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: October 30, 2017

Wildly successful entrepreneur, Thane Walker is stubbornly set in his ways. Adamantly resistant to the shackles of commitment, he’s seen enough unhappy endings to learn the best way to play is by keeping his men on the payroll.

Levi Silva’s dream of graduating from one of the country’s top medical schools is in his grasp, until news from home changes everything. Now, he’s raising his two teenage brothers and trying to keep everyone’s head above water, emotionally and financially.

When Levi’s new job puts him in Thane’s path, their chemistry explodes, but their fear of being involved in relationships keeps them apart. Unfortunately, despite the intense desire drawing them together, neither man can move forward until they get past their own…Reservations.

Well guys……another Kindle Alexander masterpiece. Wow! What an amazing book!

I won’t say it’s my favorite because well with these authors that’s like trying to say you have a favorite child or something. They are all so freaking amazing! 

Levi, oh poor Levi, he is so amazing and damaged it’s just hard not to love him. He hasn’t had an easy life and when Thane comes along and tries so hard to make it better Levi bucks every attempt.

Thane hasn’t had it easy either in the sense that he doesn’t get along so well with his parents. There are reasons for this but it has prevented him from loving and having a healthy relationship. Once he realizes this however, he goes after his man with gusto!!!

It should be said these are M/M books so if that’s something you won’t like then you may not like this book. However, the thing I love about Kindle Alexander is the WAY they write these M/M books. It’s not porn and it’s not sex for sex sake. It’s serious romance and commitment. It’s sweet, sexy, fun and amazing!! I didn’t think I would like M/M either but I love me some Kindle Alexander. The writing is just amazing!!!

The characters are real and strong. Easy to love and get to know. They worm their way into your heart and when the end does come you will be sad you can’t read about them any longer. I felt the same when getting to the end of Reservations. 

They are seriously amazing!!!

Very Highly Recommend!!!

Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It's always a surprise to see what's coming next!

I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!

Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.

I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.

That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.

Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.

Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.

Bad Habit by Charleigh Rose: Release + Review

Title: Bad Habit
Author: Charleigh Rose
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: November 16, 2017


I was infatuated with Asher Kelley the moment he came tumbling through my brother’s window five years ago.
Even bruised and bloodied, he was the most beautiful boy I'd ever seen.
We couldn't ever be together.
I was too young, and he was too untouchable.
He was too troubled, and I was too naïve.
But the heart is rebellious, and mine decided it didn’t care about any of those things.
As I got older, harmless flirting turned to stolen moments in dark corners.
Until one day, he was gone without a trace.
Now, two years later, he’s back.
Callous and cruel.
He’s my brother’s best friend. My parents’ worst nightmare.
I should hate him.
But like a Bad Habit, I can’t quit him.


I was drawn to Briar Vale from the first time she looked up at me with stars in her big, blue eyes.
She was just a kid, nothing but elbows and knees, but she was the most beautiful creature I'd ever seen.
We could never be together.
I was too old and she was too off limits.
She was too good and I was too fucked up.
Eventually, the temptation became too much to resist.
I risked everything for a kiss and she betrayed me.
Two years have passed and I’m forced to see her again, but now she's all grown up.
She’s my best friend’s baby sister. My downfall.
I hate her for what she did.
But she's always been my drug of choice.

Bad Habit is my first book by Charleigh Rose and I am stoked that it was. Her writing pulls you in and makes you feel one with the characters. I absolutely fell in love with the whole crew. Asher, Briar, Dash and Adrian.

When life hands you lemons, they say to make lemonade. However, what do you do if life hands you rotten lemons? That was the hand that Asher was dealt. Losing his mom at a very young age, he lost his dad as well. Only, not physically, but mentally and emotionally. He took his pain out on his son, Asher. This made a hardened man. A man that felt unworthy of love and even happiness.

Briar is a fun loving, free-spirited beauty. She also just so happens to love her brother’s best friend … Asher. Secret is, he feels the same, but he won’t let himself ruin such a perfect angel and promises himself to stay away. When life messed him over once again, he leaves for a few years, leaving behind a crumbled heart in Briar. When Asher returns, he tries and tries to stay away, but he just can’t seem to keep his own promise. Will he stay strong and leave Briar alone? How would Dash feel knowing his best friend is in love with his baby sister?

This is one amazing book that I read in one sitting. I devoured it and I cannot wait for book two. A MUST read!

The quiet snick of the front door closing alerts me to her arrival. About fucking time. I flatten myself against the wall behind her door right before she opens it then gently nudges it shut with the back of her foot. She kicks off her shoes and starts to pull her dress up to take it off. Standing with her back to me in front of the moonlit window, I can make out her brand-new curves. Her tight, round ass. The dimples on the small of her back. Her dress is just past her hips when I speak. 

“Have fun tonight?” 
Briar yelps and drops her dress back in place before spinning around. 
“I was until I had some perv spy on me for the second time in as many days.” 
“Oh, I’m the pervert?” I taunt, moving closer. She wants to back away, but she doesn’t. She stands her ground, and it only spurs me on. “Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it was you who watched me jack off this morning.” 
I’m almost sad the lights aren’t on to see her inevitable blush. I’m standing over her tiny form, and she has to crane her neck to look up at me. 
“Momentary lapse in sanity.” She shrugs. “It’s nothing I haven’t seen before.” 
Those words kick around in my head for a second before I practically tackle her onto her bed. She lands on her back, mouth parted in shock, with her legs spread and her dress ridden up. My hips fill the spot between her thighs, and I pin her hands to the bed. 
Fuck, this was a bad idea. She smells good—sweet, like her conditioner—and she feels even better. I have to fight the urge to grind into her. 
“Nothing you haven’t seen before, huh?”
“No,” she says between clenched teeth.
“Who was it?” I demand. “Was it the little golden boy from tonight?” 
“None of your business.” 
“Tell me, Briar,” I whisper, getting closer to her ear. “Did he make you come from a kiss like I did? Does he know what you sound like as you do? Because I can still hear you. I can still see you.” 
If her sharp intake of breath didn’t let me know she was affected, the way she rocked into my jean-covered cock does. I stay stock-still, still braced above her with my hands around her wrists. 
“Does he know that I was the first one to make this little body come before you even knew how to do it yourself?” I bring her wrists closer together so I can grip them both with one hand, and I trail my index finger from her sternum all the way down to her underwear. 
A moan slips free, and her hips chase the friction once more. 
“No,” she whispers.
