Say You Want Me

Say you want me by Corinne Michaels. 258 pages

Say you want me was released a day early on Amazon and I’m so excited that it was because I was able to start and finish the book the same day and now I can enjoy taking my kids trick or treating and focus all my attention on them having fun and taking our time instead rushing them so I could get home and dig into Wyatt. This was a 5 star read. Corrine had you laughing and wanting to yell all in the same chapter. There was a point where my heart literally broke for Angie and Wyatt and I was near tears and I’m not one to cry while reading. There were times where Angie was being so stupid I wanted to slap some sense into her. If she wasn’t going to let Wyatt in I was going to take him off her hands. The Wyatt we see with Angie has all the qualities of the perfect man. He’s kind and thoughtful, protective and caring. You fall in love with him instantly. Corrine had me loving Wyatt from the cover alone, reading the book has made me fall hard for Wyatt, who is now my all time favorite book boyfriend, sorry Jackson. Cowboy trumps SEALS.

“I love watching your walls crumble. I love watching your reasons diminish. I’m really going to enjoy when you finally realize just how much you want me.” – Wyatt in Say You Want Me.

Wyatt is known as a playboy. He had no interest in settling down with a woman ever, until Angie. Angie is as stubborn as a mule. She’s so use to being on her own and has no support of her family that she has a hard time letting Wyatt in. Wyatt asks Angie to move to Bell Buckle for 3 months to give them a chance. Angie agree’s but does her damndest to keep those walls up so after the 3 months she can go back to Pennsylvania knowing she tried and not feel guilty. While in Bell Buckle Angie gets a first hand look at what it’s like to have support of a loving family in the Henningtons as well as the people of Bell Buckle who become the family she dreamt she had and the walls she built up start to fall. Can Angie fall in love with Wyatt? Can she give up her life in Pennsylvania and move to Tennessee for a man? Pick up your copy of Say You Want Me today to find out.

Down Shift

So I finished Down Shift today. I was scared to read it, having a hard time picturing Zander as a grown man when I keep seeing the scared little boy from Driven.  I bought the bullet and read it because I agreed to post a review on my blog and because let’s face it a book written by K. Bromberg can’t sit in my kindle not read. As usual for Kristy she didn’t disappoint with this book. Gone is the scared little boy from Driven and he’s replaced with an angry confused adult who reminds me of his adopted father Colton. They share a connection only children of abuse and drug addicts share and it gives them a special bond. This same connection is shared between Getty and Zander although Getty’s abuse was different but brought the two together when they were both running away from different things. To watch their love evolve before they themselves realized it brought back the memories of Colton and Rylee doing the same. What a great read this was and I’m so glad I didn’t let my fear hold me back from reading this one.

Below is the authors summary of the book and links to buy your copy. This is a must read novel!

The New York Times bestselling Driven series continues with a story about finding love where you least expect it…

Behind the wheel, racing champion Zander Donavan is at the top of his game. But after too much excess in his personal life, he’s forced to step away. He needs to accomplish something all on his own—outside of his famous father, Colton Donavan’s, shadow.

Getty Caster is running away from the abuse that clouds her past. She thinks she’s found the perfect escape—until she discovers a stranger in the beachside cottage she’d been promised. He’s undeniably sexy, but she’s there to heal. Alone.

Before long though, fighting with each other turns into fighting their attraction. And giving into desire sets off a chain reaction that has their pasts colliding. With an unexpected love on the line, can they overcome the fallout to build a future?

EXCERPT

“You don’t know anything about me.” My voice is slight but strong, my need to assert myself front and center despite his calling me on the carpet.

“That’s where you’re wrong, Socks. I might not know where you’re from or why I ruffled your feathers today, but I know you’re stronger than you give yourself credit for. Whatever it is that you ran from back home, you did it. You got out and are making it on your own. That takes guts and you deserve mad props for that. I know you like things messy and are goddamn cute when you’re tipsy. I know you’re stubborn as hell and gorgeous as fuck. And that your kiss tastes like an aged whiskey: something I want to sip slowly, feel on my lips, savor on my tongue, and take my time with before I get drunk on it.” With a lift of his eyebrows and a nod of his head, he walks past me, leaving me with my mouth agape and eyes wide.

I can’t move. Just stand staring at the door in front of me as I try to process what he just said, what he meant by it, and yet there’s no use because we just had a whole one-sided conversation and that need to banter with him is gone. Lost to the tingling in my lower belly and the wild spinning of my thoughts.

“Oh, and, Getty?” Zander calls out to me from the kitchen, refusing to continue until I turn to face him, standing there unabashedly shirtless. “If you ever call me pretty again, we’re gonna have a real problem. I guarantee you there is nothing pretty about me.”

I almost smile at the fact that out of all of the crappy things I said to him, that is the one that bugged him the most.

“You are kind of pretty, though,” I murmur, unable to resist goading him further, needing to try to get us back on an even playing field. Because hell if right now I don’t feel like I’m on the low end of the teeter-totter.

His immediate response? A snort to signify that his chiseled abs and the tall, dark, and handsome thing he’s got going on are nothing more than average.

“Last warning, Socks.” His eyes flash with mirth. And what looks like desire.

An unexpected part of me—the one who usually hides and doesn’t ever take a chance—wants to say it again. Just to see what he’d do if I did.

“So damn pretty.” I don’t know who’s more shocked at my comment, him or me, but we stand there for a moment, gazes locked, unspoken words warring across the distance between us.

He walks toward me with a predatory gleam in his eyes and a salacious smirk on his lips that catches me off guard. “I know I said you were brave, Getty, but now you’re just playing with matches.”

I draw in a long inhale as he steps right in front of me. I can’t look at him. My nerve is suddenly gone. Outside, rain pelts the roof. The constant drip into the bucket in the hallway serves as a metronome to this anticipatory silence we are dancing in. The goose bumps on his chest are the only thing I can focus on.

When his thumb and forefinger direct my chin up so I’m forced to meet his eyes, every part of me hums from his touch. From the want of something I don’t quite understand myself and couldn’t ever put into words. Our eyes meet—his intense, mine searching for answers that aren’t his to give—before his gaze flicks down to my mouth and then back up again.

“Not yet, Getty.” He closes his eyes for a beat, and I see what I think is restraint reflected in his grimace, before a ghost of a smile spreads on his lips. “I don’t think you’re ready to light this fire just yet.”

Settling for perfect

Settling for perfect by Clair S Crawford

Arna is not your traditional woman. She is not interested in finding mr perfect and starting a family much to the dislike of her friends and family. On the heels of her breakup with her best friend Sally, Arna tries to navigate the life she wants for herself when she meets a sexy as sin man at the coffee shop she frequents daily. They share some sexy flirty banter a few days in a row when one day mr sexy lets it slip he has a wife but she could be interested in a three some if that interests her too. Arna is disgusted that he has been flirting with her for the past few days while he’s married all the while he takes her hand and shows her how hard he is for her. Freaked out my his actions Arna accidentally spills her coffee on herself when another sexy as sin man, Anthony, comes to her rescue. He takes her back to his office so she can shower and change out of her wet clothes. A relationship blossoms and Anthony turns out to be the perfect man.

I enjoyed reading this book. It didn’t keep my focus like her last book but I was determined to see if Arna would end up going against what she believed and get married and have a family.

I disliked the heroine in this book. Always being the one to make contact first. I found her annoying and couldn’t understand what the hero, Anthony saw in her. She was being the needy woman men hate but it seems Anthony diggs that in a woman. In the end she found her Mr perfect as we are acostome to in romance novels. This book was more like a fiction than a nonfiction we like to get wrapped up in and I kept reading because it was different. It’s a recommended read if your looking for something different.
