  Under Her Spell
4 of 5 stars false
When a series of failed relationships and business ventures have Monica Jackson doubting her self-worth, she turns to spell casting to attract positive energy and the opportunities needed to achieve her goals. But can Monica’s belief in spells restore her belief in herself?
Monica creates a spell to find her soul mate, and one to ensure the success of her new romantic event planning company, Enhance Your Romance. Monica is confident she has found her niche until divorce lawyer Reed Walker opens a practice next door to her office. The anti-marriage slogan plastered on his office window, and his down-on-love clients, quickly prove detrimental to Monica’s business. When his arrival appears to trigger a string of bad luck, Monica fears one of her spells sent negative energy into the universe and it has returned to her threefold. Although Reed is beyond sexy, and she admires his self-confidence, she’ll do whatever it takes to get the universe back on her side, and Reed out of her life. No way is she losing another business.
Reed finds himself attracted to Monica’s beauty and her optimism. His job and his parents’ divorce have made him a pessimist, especially when it comes to love. However, he soon finds that Monica’s pro-love attitude is rubbing off on him, causing him to lose his edge. If Reed doesn’t distance himself from Monica, he’ll likely destroy his reputation as a pit bull divorce lawyer.
Can Monica and Reed look past what they might be losing to realize the love they have found?


****This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest review****
Monicas business is all about romance, when she has a spell cast to find her soul mate Reed shows up. Reed is a divorce lawyer with his practice set up next to Monicas business things start going downhill for her. This book was full of humor, the author creates these situations that have you laughing till your sides hurt. Her great one liners are what really made the book for me. The two main characters Monica and Reed are like oil and water, it was nice to see the changes both of them made throughout the book. The steamy romance between the two of them showed that opposites really do attract and when you love someone it can change you for the better. Under Her Spell is a feel good fluffy read with tons of comedy and hot love story. This is a good book and if you are looking for something on the lighter side, you should definitely check this book out.

All My Life

Seventeen-year-old Kari meets Neil Mars. “Neil as in Armstrong and Mars…as in Bruno.” A boy who beats every vampire, werewolf, highlander fantasy Kari has ever had. But she knows can’t get close to him. Not ever. Because that would mean telling him everything. Coming clean. And Kari can’t bear the idea of changing the way Neil looks at her. Like she’s the only girl in the world. His reverence is something too precious to lose. Perhaps even at the cost of losing him. But Kari doesn't know why Neil calls her his ‘Angel’ and when she finds out, she realizes what love is all about. Boundless joy, unending longing and a fuckload of heartache.

“I can take care of myself,” I tell him. 
His lips twitch in response. “Oh, I’m sure you can, little shrub.”
“You are warned!” I take my voice down a notch and point my ring at him, “I’ll tunnel your leathery knighthood right out of this galaxy!” 
Neil suddenly halts in his tracks and pins me down with eyes. “Batman vs. Green Lantern? Batman wins. Every. Single. Time.”
“Ohmygod! So not true. In the…”
He cuts me. “One word…yellow.” I stare at him with my mouth half-open. 
“‘Nuff said,” he says smugly and then tugs on my hand.

Blue Lines

Blue Lines - Cover Reveal
Toni Aleo
Contemporary Sports Romance
Date to be Published: August 13, 2013


Opposites do more than just attract in Toni Aleo’s latest Nashville Assassins novel about a very bad boy and the good girl he can’t resist.

The instant Piper Allen sees Erik Titov, she wants him—wants his rock-hard body, sure, but the strength and mystery that lies behind that superstar hockey jock demeanor, too. So when he sidles up to her at a bar and slinks his arm around her waist, she’s lost. What follows is the wildest night of her life . . . followed by inevitable heartbreak the next morning. And then, a few weeks later, a very big surprise: two blue lines on a pregnancy test.

Only a check to the head could make Erik fall for a nice girl like Piper. But since their crazy-sexy night together, he’s been trying to forget about her alluring body by falling into bed with every woman in Nashville, and it’s not working. So when Piper shows up at his house with a baby-bomb to drop, it doesn’t take much for Erik to suggest the nuclear option: marriage. While it’s supposed to be all for show, the second they say “I do,” the ice between them starts to melt into sizzling steam.

Losing Me, Finding You 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.

Losing Me, Finding You
3 of 5 stars false
Twenty-one year old Amy Cross's idea of a hot Saturday night is curling up with her favorite book boyfriend and secretly sneaking a bottle of her mother's wine. That is, until she meets Austin Sparks, the biker boy with a past that burns like fire and a gaze she can't look away from. Without knowing what she's doing or why she's doing it, Amy ends up on the road with Austin traveling from one city to another while learning things she's only ever read about in romance novels.
At first it seems like Austin is Amy's fantasy come true, but as their journey progresses, she starts to sense that Austin is running away from something. Amy knows that she'll do whatever it takes to help him find himself. What she doesn't expect is that she'll lose herself in the process and how good it will feel to be free


Amy is not living the life that she wants to live. Stuck in the middle of a god fearing town, with a mean, free with his fists preacher father and a brain washed mother, Amy pretends to be the good girl. Every year when the Biker fair happens in there town, she dreams of riding away and never looking back. Truth is , she is a 21 year old virgin who has never even been kissed,and who lives off the fantasies she has of her list of book boyfriends.
This years Biker Fair brings with it Austin Sparks, devilishly handsome, dirty mouthed, bad boy biker... and they strike up a surprising connection.
Losing Me, Finding you, really got me excited. The cover, totally hot, I mean who could resist that?
The actual story seemed somewhat lacking. It wasn't until the actual end of the book that I felt any sort of connection between the characters except for the sexual one. There was lots of sex in this book, but for me, it was really fast and not sexy at all. The story as a whole , characters and all, felt like it needed a bit more depth, background and just general fleshing out. With a bit more information this book could have been fantastic. We had tidbits of information of characters back stories, Austin's brother for example, but not enough for me to be emotionally involved, which I like to be when reading a book.
My disappointment may have something to do with the fact that I have come to expect a lot from my steamy hot biker books, but I don't think so. This one had all the potential, but just didn't quite get there in my mind. I was a good, but not great.
