Dark Room By L.P. Dover & Heidi McLaughlin (ADULTS ONLY)

Hey everyone, I have a sweet & sizzling read for you!

Dark Room by L.P. Dover & Heidi McLaughlin

Parker Ward inherited the family business after his grandfather passed.

One night a friend from school, Bryce, contacted Parker asking him to invest in his business, an adult club known as Society X.

Like any good investor he had to check out the investment potential.


It did not take long for business to turn into pleasure inside The Dark Room.

The rules: No talking.
                 Remain strictly anonymous. 
                 No exchanging phone numbers.

However, Parker and his mystery woman cannot get enough of each other.

If they were to ever cross paths outside of The Dark Room would they know each other?

I REALLY enjoyed this book. It was a fast paced page turner! The main characters were fun and the ending was satisfying!


Best Wishes Always,

Blind Reality By Heidi McLaughlin

Hey everyone, I am back with a fun romance!

Blind Reality by Heidi McLaughlin

Joey Mitchell is down on her luck when it comes to love. When her fiancĂ© cheated on her with her best friend, Joey's mother came up with a creative way to get her daughter down the aisle. Her mother signed Joey up to be a contestant on the reality television show, Married Blind. 

The bride and groom are blindfolded the entire time, until after the I Do's. After which, they will compete in challenges with other contestants over the course of three months for one million dollars.

Imagine how shocked you would be if  your celebrity crush fantasy became reality.

After Joey Mitchell said "I Do", she learned that she was now the wife of her celebrity crush, Joshua Wilson, and then she fainted.

Once his new wife recovered, he was quick to set guidelines and inform her of his strategy to win.

However, not everything goes according to plan and those make the best moments for TV and may be the stepping stones for someone's life.

I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK! It was hilarious fun that is laced with sweet and tender moments. It leaves you with an, on the edge of your seat, cliffhanger. I could not put this book down!

Thirteen Reasons Why By Jay Asher

Hey everyone, I have a book centered around a sensitive but serious subject matter to share with you today.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Before Hannah Baker committed suicide, she recorded her story explaining the events and the people involved that led her to commit suicide. These recorded tapes were packaged and sent to each of the people that played a role in her decision, one by one. After each person who was sent the tapes listened to them, they were to send them to the next person involved and so on. If they failed to do so there would be consequences.

Clay Jensen returns home from school when he finds the box of tapes on his porch. After finding out he was on the list of people, he can not understand why. He was always kind to Hannah. So to find out, he listens to the tapes one by one and retraces her steps.

I really enjoyed this book, but not for the reasons someone would normally enjoy a book. I enjoyed this book for the perspective it gave and the ways it makes you think. This book was really well written. Especially for the subject matter. There are so many books that take serious topics and do not handle it well. I really applaud this author for their work. 

People who commit suicide do not do it for attention or any shallow reasons. They do it out of desperation to escape their pain.

Amber to Ashes By Gail McHugh (Adults Only)

Hey everyone, I have a dark and twisted book to share with you!

Amber to Ashes by Gail McHugh

Amber Moretti's past leaves her with more than a few permanent scars. When she was young, her childhood went from non-existent to witnessing first hand what desperation and the threat of loss can turn a person into. Determined to lock the past behind her, she refuses to get into anything more than a one night stand.

One day, at her college dining hall, she falls into the lap of an arrogant, tattooed, blue-eyed bad boy, Ryder Ashcroft. His efforts earn him a searing kiss and a stinging smack to the face.

After the memorable display in front of plenty of witnesses. Ashcroft's best friend, Brock Cunningham, makes a play himself for Amber. The two bond over the incident, which gives him a way to get her to give him a chance to make her his girl.


Ryder is not going down without a fight. He starts to let her see that there is more to him than a tough exterior.

What starts out as a battle of the heart, turns into an all out deadly war.

However, when dark secrets from all three sides are brought to light. Everyone is looking for an escape and the party gets started.

The cost of admission could be more than they bargained for.

Dirty secrets need to stay buried but the skeletons have risen and they crave revenge.

I enjoyed this dark read. Beware it is more twisted than a pretzel. Fair warning, this book ends on a major cliffhanger and it will leave you needing to read book two right away. As of this date and to my knowledge it has yet to be released.


Best Wishes Always,

Wicked Woman
