Review - Sinners Are Winners by Lani Lynn Vale



He saw her from across a crowded ballpark and knew she was about to change his life. 
Yes, he realizes just how clichΓ© that really is, but the moment his eyes locked on her, he knew that she was the one.
At least, the one that royally screwed him over. The one responsible for his demotion and the subsequent disciplinary action taken against him before he’d even gotten out of the probationary period with Kilgore Police Department.

It all started with a kiss.
***
Saylor Rae Spada tried to mind her business. She also tried to not get involved in petty disputes.
However, from the moment she saw him sitting next to her at a professional baseball game, a game she didn’t even want to be at but was dragged to by her blind date, she couldn’t look away.
Then the kiss cam came on, featuring none other than her and the handsome stranger.
Without missing a beat, he kissed her.
Then her blind date decided to pull a knife and try to stab him.
From that point forward, she’s done nothing but cause him trouble.
Trouble that he’s starting to find increasingly adorable.

Lani Lynn Vale does it again. She makes me fall in love with her writing even more with every book I pick up. This book has everything I love about this authors books. It's got that little bit of suspense, a whole lot of laughs, a bearded hottie who you just can't get enough of!! And of course that sweet and sassy heroine who fits her hero like a glove. I just can't get enough.

Saylor and Lock were perfect from the start. I love how caring these characters are towards each other and I love how every character is linked to one another, in every book!! It just makes it all the more enjoyable to read. I had some really good laughs through this one, and I could not put it down at all.

Talk about hot hot hot as well. Saylor and Lock were burning up the pages! I can't wait until the next one because I am SO intrigued!! I need to know! I will await it with bated breath!

This is my voluntary arc review

Woah!!!!! Meghan March has knocked the socks right off my feet. The second book in this duet was amazing! So many twists I didn't see coming, so many emotions knocking me on my a$$. I just loved it so so sooo much!

I can't say much because it will literally give too much away and I really want everyone to experience this duet the same way I did. The writing is amazing as always, the words flowed and I was never bored, not even for a second. I devoured this book so fast that I didn't even come up for air!

Cannon and Drew were perfect. Their feelings for one another just bounced off that page and right into my heart. I love them both so much. I really want to see more from them. I can't wait to see the next beauty this author has for us!! I am ready!

Senior Detective Cat Day has one hard and fast rule about dating: no cops. They live hard and die young—a truth she’s faced every day since her fiancΓ©’s tragic death several years ago. But when rookie Jace Sutton shows up to work the same burglary investigation, she feels desire she hasn’t felt in years.
Jace knows what he wants the minute Detective Day strolls onto his crime scene in heels and a pencil skirt tailored by God himself. He wants to thaw the legendary Ice Queen, and it only takes one hot, dirty night for Jace to realize he wants more. Much, much more.
But more is the last thing Cat wants from any cop—especially a playboy rookie like Jace. As the burglary investigation heats up and he repeatedly puts himself in danger, Cat must ask herself if Jace will be as reckless with her heart as he is with his life.

Rating - πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

This is actually my first read from this author. I was excited to get my hands on it and finally read a story written by her. I liked the story for the most part, but I also felt slightly disappointed after reading the book as well. While I loved the fact that this book is about an older woman and a younger man, and it has that whole forbidden aspect of things, the book left me wanting more. I wanted to feel a deeper connection with the characters, not one based on sex. I couldn't fully get behind their feelings for one another because it seemed to be built on their chemistry in the bedroom instead of their chemistry outside of the bedroom.

The book has hot, like of the charts hot. It flowed well and was written in a way that kept you interested. I liked how caring Jace was towards Cat. Jace was just a sweetheart behind his broodiness. I liked how well Jace and Cat went together and how the age difference didn't bother Jace in the slightest. I would definitely read another book by this author and I have my eyes on her previous contributions to the Misadventures series.

This is my voluntary arc review.


Meet the Author
Sierra is a voracious reader of all things including the smuttiest smut, young adult, piles of non-fiction for research, and everything Bill Bryson (especially on audio).
She loves writing the dirtiest things that she can think of, King Arthur, sparkling water, Tarot, coffee, leggings, and learning new words daily.
Her previous jobs have included firing ceramics, teaching living history lessons in a one-room schoolhouse in full, 1908-approved school marm attire, and working as a librarian for several years—not in that order
She lives in the Kansas City area with her hot cop husband, two children, and two giant dogs. (And two cats, but they're so naughty we don't talk about them.)
The social media she cares about the most are Spotify and (her very very NSFW) Tumblr. Following her in those places is a true love language, indeed.

REVIEW Blog Tour - The Dugout by Meghan Quinn




THE DUGOUT by Meghan Quinn 
Release Date: September 19th
 


AVAILABLE NOW!! FREE in Kindle Unlimited! 



Blurb: 
Let me ask you a question:
If someone is vying for your spot on a team and just so happens to injure you during practice, would you believe it was on purpose?
Word around campus is . . . it was no accident.
That injury has cost me everything; my starting position, my junior year—and the draft. Now, I’m a senior fresh off recovery, struggling to find my groove, until the day I run into a nervous, fidgety, girl with freckles, in the dining hall.
They call Milly Potter The Baseball Whisperer, The Diamond Wizard, and The Epitome of All Knowledge. She believes in baseball. She breathes it. She’s the queen of an infamous dynasty, but no one actually knows who she really is, and she plans to keep it that way.
One mishap in the panini line, one miscommunication in the weight room, and many failed attempts at an apology equal up to one solid truth -- Milly Potter never wants to speak to me again -- no matter how good my forearms look.
Little do we both know, she’s about to become more than just my fairy ballmother.


RATING - πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

OH MY GOODNESS! My love for this book is HUGE, MASSIVE.... These characters, this story, it's just everything. I was captivated from the very first page, I didn't want to put it down at all, adulting went right out the window, and my family then had to fend for themselves, because I was in my reading cave and the words in this novel were all that I needed to survive. My heart is so full with how beautiful and emotional this story is!!!

I laughed SO HARD...Milly is so awkward that is was adorable... From the cookie incident... to the talk about the dangles... I laughed so much I cried!!! These two are just so cute together! They burn hot, but have a connection so deep. It was beautiful to watch them grow together. And of course there was the heart aching parts that made me cry all the tears, I just couldn't help it. I was so invested in their story.

This author has written masterpiece after masterpiece and I am just in absolute awe of her story telling. Ms Quinn is fast becoming one of my absolute favourite authors, her writing is so impassioned that it's so easy to fall in love with anything she writes. I can't wait to see if there will be anymore from this series! I can not get enough!

This is my voluntary arc review


Excerpt: 


He lifts the bat, adjusts his feet, and looks toward the pitching mound.
“Hold it there while I do some examining. Is it okay if I touch you?”
“I mean, just don’t cup my junk or anything.”
I know he’s joking, but it still makes my face flame, which I know turns my cheeks an awful shade of red. Ducking under my hat, I walk to the back of him so he can’t notice my embarrassment. “I . . . I won’t be grabbing your, uh, junk.”
He chuckles. “I know, I was just kidding.”
“Oh yeah, I know,” I say awkwardly.
Letting out a large exhale, he drops his hands and turns toward me, his large frame towering over me. “Maybe we should clear some things up before we start getting technical with my swing.”
“We don’t need to clear anything up. We can just—”
“Milly. We haven’t had the best interactions, and I want to make sure we’re cool.”
“Yup.” I stare down at the ground. “Totally cool.”
Apparently, me trying to avoid the conversation doesn’t work for him, because he reaches out and places his finger under my chin. With a small lift, he forces me to meet his eyes, the one place I didn’t want to look.
“Humor me, okay?”
My eyes blink a few times as I swallow hard. I’ll give him this; he’s very handsome. Chiseled jaw, enhanced by a soft tan. The lightest of scruff dances across his face, and his lips have a pink pout I would never have expected in a guy. And then there are his eyes, a brilliant blue bordered by long, dark eyelashes. It’s said the eyes are the gateway to a person’s soul, and I can fully believe that when it comes to Carson Stone.
“Okay,” I answer softly just as the wind picks up, blowing his fresh-soap scent in my direction. What is it about the scent of a spring mountain that makes a girl giddy inside? I mean, not giddy, but that did smell nice, really nice

AVAILABLE NOW!! FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

   

Blurb: 
Eight years ago, I gave Grayson Price a piece of my heart.
To him, I was the strange girl whose mom had just abandoned her. To me, he was a savior, an anchor, someone who stood beside me on that beach.
The next time I saw him, I was twenty, and he was thirty-six.
He didn't remember me. And when he flirted... I didn't tell him.
By the time he found out, it was too late. We tried to deny our desire, but our attraction was too enticing.
Eight years ago, I gave Grayson Price a piece of my heart.
Too bad he’s my dad’s best friend.

Rating - πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

An age gap, forbidden romance.... YES GIMME GIMME!!! When I read the blurb for this book I just knew I needed to read it asap. This book had a big lot of angst.. ohhh that pull between the characters was high. You could just feel the tension on the pages anytime that these two were in the room together. All that want, all that lust, it just was a joy to read. 

Grayson and River were heating up my kindle with all their seductive looks and sneaky touches. Their story is a really slow burning one. Their individual stories will grab your heart and just not let go. I did have a bit of a cry in certain parts, I couldn't help myself. 

The story itself was well written and flowed beautifully. Each time I pick up a book from this author I just know it will be a story that touched my heart in some way. I can't wait to see if she will write a story for Gray's brother. I can't wait to see what this author has in store for us next.

This is my voluntary arc review
