No More Running 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers

 No More Running

 5 of 5 stars false  
After an eleven day stay at the hospital, Di has finally had enough.

Diana James has been abused for five years by her boyfriend, Chuck, and knows that if she doesn’t get away, he is going to kill her. With the help of a friend, Di is able to change her identity and escape him, but she can never stay long in one place because he is always one just step behind her.

Garret Starr is the owner of Starr Security and Di’s current employer. He knows all about her past after a very thorough background check, and knows she’s going to bolt any minute, but he has a secret and can’t let her go. Not to mention the fact he has fallen for the brown haired beauty.

Will Garret be able to find an incentive good enough for Di to risk staying and confront her past, or will he lose her for good?


Diana was finally able to escape an abusive relationship, but she has to live a life on the run. Her ex is a cop and anytime she gets comfortable he comes after her and hurts the people around her. She finally settles down in a small southern town with a job at a security firm. Her boss Garret knows about her past and he still wants her. When things start happening and she says she needs to leave, he decides to try and convince her to stay and help her finally confront her stalker. Diana is a strong woman, she survived years of abuse and got away when she could. While she constantly has to leave places, she still tries to make the lives of people around her better. Garret is a strong man and he is part of a network that helps women and children get away from abusive situations. He likes Diana and wants to help her, whether she decides to have a relationship with him or not. I really respected Diana, she had a rough life yet she still had hope. The story was interesting and the added twist and intriguing thrown in really surprised me. I couldn't put this book down, from the first page the last, it was wonderful.

Seduction and Snacks 18 +

This review is for 18 + readers only

Seduction and Snacks (Chocolate Lovers, #1)
3 of 5 stars false
Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life.
When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time.
With Carter's undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire's panic that her stretch marks and slim to none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.

Warning: contains explicit sex, profanity and enough sarcasm to choke a horse


When I look at other reviews for Snacks and Seduction I think, what is wrong with me?I should of taken the warning seriously.
First half of this book, I laughed my arse off, literally, laugh out loud, to the point my husband was looking at me as if I belong in the looney bin and he was going to be the one to cart me there. I loved the characters the plotline was not the norm and everything was flowing along just fine.
Second half of this book, it just became not funny. Who can explain why one minute something's funny and then next minute not? Not I.
I can say it started to wear me down, I started to get annoyed that no one ever said anything series to anybody and even Gavin became not so cute. I needed just a moment of serious, so that everybody would seem a bit more real.
So this one became just a so- so read for me because of that.
