My review of Where I Am by Michelle Dare

4 years ago Asteria Livingston thought she had found the perfect man but when she walks in on him with his brother's girlfriend in the bathroom she leaves without giving him a chance to explain. Now she has come back to her hometown and is hoping to avoid the man that claimed her heart so many years ago.

All Parker Maxfield wants is a chance to explain to Asteria what happened that night but it's not only his story to tell.

As Asteria and Parker try to mend their broken hearts and discover if they have a chance at a future together they also discover some disturbing news about Parker's brother, Brant, that may put them all in danger.

This was a great book but definitely an emotional one as the book addresses some difficult subjects.

The events of 4 years ago changed the lives of the people involved with that night, namely Asteria, Parker and Blair but I had a feeling that there was so much more to the story and was I ever right.

I liked Asteria and knew how hurt she was by Parker but I had feeling once she learned why things happened the way they did things would change dramatically.

Parker was absolutely amazing and when everything came out it broke my heart why he lost Asteria. I was so happy when Asteria and Blair talked things out and Asteria said she would be there for her.

I was shocked at the end how everything went down and although I expected parts of it I was definitely thrown for a loop on how everything went down.

The very end was awesome and I look forward to more from this author!

He was the man of my dreams, or so I thought. I wasn't sure how I'd react when I saw him again. I planned on avoiding him, but our small hometown made that impossible. The years apart melted away when I saw him. Time hadn't changed my feelings, after all. Jealousy flared anew. My heart, which I thought had healed, was back to being in a million pieces.
Now I'm right where I don't want to be—in front of him with tears in my eyes.
Parker
Everything isn't always as it seems. One moment could cause a ripple effect with unexpected consequences that last for years. Not a day had gone by that I didn't think of her. When our paths crossed again, I knew I had to tell her the truth. Arguing was inevitable, but I'd rather fight for her than face another day without her. My heart always belonged to her.
Where I am is standing in front of her—asking for another chance.

My review of Spark by S.L. Scott

Jet Crow is a small town rockstar who meets the girl of his dreams at a bar but then in the morning she is gone. But then she unexpectedly returns months later to tell him that he has a son, from her cousin Cassie. Now Jet must prove that he wants to take care of his son and be a good father to him.

Hannah Nichols never meant to fall for Jet Crow the night they met but now she must prove that she is a better guardian for Alfie, the son of her cousin Cassie. She must prove her loyalty to her family by proving that Jet is not capable of taking care of Alfie.

But soon Hannah remembers why she fell for Jet and she must decide if she is doing what is in Alfie's best interest. When Jet has a chance of making music in LA, he must figure out how he can have Alfie in his life while following his own dreams.

This was such a good book and I loved the hard choices that had to be made by both Jet and Hannah which led them to figure out what they needed in their lives.

I loved how Jet stood up to his responsibilities the moment he learned about Alfie and how he genuinely was upset that he missed the first 6 years of his life. He truly wanted to be the best father he could be for Alfie but at the same time his band was gaining attention and he was torn.

I liked Hannah right from the beginning and I knew how much she loved Alfie but I loved how she began to see everything differently as the story went on and she learned some things about how Cassie truly felt about Jet and the problems with Cassie's mom, Eileen.

Alfie was just awesome and I liked how he was aware of so much more than what everyone gave him credit for. He knew in his heart that he already loved Jet from what he was told about him and it really made me happy.

I really enjoyed how Jet and Hannah had to work things through again from a friendship level to more and regain trust and openness. When Hannah finally Jet the truth about Hunter, I knew she was on her way to happiness. The two together were hot and they really complemented each other and brought out the best in one another.

I loved the very end with the judge!

I hope the author gives us a book on either Tulsa or Rivers next or even one with Dave!

SYNOPSIS

One break is all The Crow Brothers need and we’re about to get it.

Johnny Outlaw, rock legend and lead singer of The Resistance, is here to watch us play. But he’s not the only familiar face in the crowd—killer little body, heart-shaped face, and drop-dead gorgeous.

Hannah Nichols sitting at the bar makes it hard to concentrate, sparks already reigniting. The beauty was never a groupie and tonight she’s not here to catch our show. She came to drop a bomb. “You have a son.”

She underestimated me. I’ll prove to my son, and her, that I can be the dad he needs.

What is it about musicians? Why are they so damn sexy?

My heart was Jet Crow’s the moment he opened his sexy mouth and sang that first song. One stolen night with that man would never be enough, but I’m not here to fall into his bed. Again. I’m here to fight for custody of a son he’s never known.

There’s just one problem. Those sparks between us have become flames. If we’re not careful we’re both going to get burned.

SPARK EXCERPT

Prologue

Jet Crow

Subtle scents of cinnamon mix with the taste of whiskey on her skin. I lick her from collarbone to the back of her ear, her moans enticing me to take more than a gentle share of what I want.

I’m well past hooking up with groupies, but something drew me to the beautiful brunette. Under the bright spotlight of that stage, my eyes found hers as I sang about finding the missing piece of me. Maybe it was the way she pretended to not care, catching my eyes and then turning away as if she was too shy to come speak to me, but too good to be bothered. It didn’t matter. I was already caught up in her as much as she was caught up in me.

The set ended and I made my way over to the mystery woman, the one who hid in the dark of the bar just as two shots were served. I took the shot of Fireball and then took her home shortly after.

Fuck. She feels good.

Hard little body, but soft in all the right places. Tits that fill my large hands and legs that spread enough for me to squeeze between her thighs. I bet she wouldn’t reach my shoulders in heels. Speaking of, “Keep them on.”

I like the feel of the leather against my lower back, the hard heel scraping across my skin when she tries to power play me by tightening around my waist and pulling me closer. I didn’t ask her to my bedroom. I didn’t have a chance. What started out as laughing while we shared a two a.m. snack of Cheetos, hummus, and whiskey turned into me eating her as a snack on top of my kitchen counter. I don’t ever do that with a one-nighter, but damn if she didn’t make me want to break more rules with her.

She kisses me like a woman in need of water, taking as much as she wants while pressing her heels into my ass. The heat between us emanates until I’m dragging my shirt off to try to cool down.

I knew she was different the moment she opened her mouth back at the bar. “You sing rock with so much soul. Who hurt you?”

“No one gets close enough to do me any harm.”

“That’s a pity.”

“It’s a pity I’ve never been hurt?”

“No, it’s a pity you’ve never loved anyone enough to get hurt.”

My heart started beating for what felt like the first time as I looked into her sultry eyes. I could blame the booze, but I can’t lie to myself. She had me thinking twice on things I never considered once before.

Who was this woman?

Even with our stomachs full, we weren’t satisfied. She dragged me by the belt down the hall to my bedroom. Her clothes were off and mine quickly followed before we tumbled into bed.

Fast. I want to fuck her fast and hard, but every time our eyes connect there’s such sadness found in her grays that I slow down. Wanting her to hold contact, I cup her cheek. “Hannah?”

Her eyes slowly open, the long lashes framing the lust I find between them. “What?” she asks between heavy breaths.

“Are you okay?”

“I’m good.”

“Just making sure.”

She runs her hands up my neck and into the back of my hair. “I’m sure.” Pulling me down to her, our mouths are just a few inches apart when she whispers, “I want you. I want to do this.”

Shy isn’t something I’d call her considering we were in my bed two hours after meeting. I like a woman who knows what she wants. Hannah knows. And fuck if it isn’t a turn on that she wants me.
