My thoughts, my opinions. If you don't like then go away....Shoo!
love Love LOVED IT! Can't wait for Book 3! I will have to reread the whole series then.
My only complaint is I needed more Raffe! I was reading and reading and kept waiting for him to show up and started to think
And then finally...
Penryn was awesome as usual...
And Paige....Awww she just breaks my heart...
I will say Pooky Bear stole the book though!

4 - I love rockers -stars
Ink my Heart starts with Justin, ladies man and lead singer of the band Luminescent Juliet headed into a tattoo shop to check out possible tattoos.
While in the tattoo shop he meets Allie aka Al who is the co-owner and one of the tattooers. He falls fast and hard for her....
I could have done without the almost insta-love but the book was still a very enjoyable read.
"I want you more than bacon, and that's alot, you know, because bacon is really, really good."
Allie is unsure of her relationship with playboy Justin due to threats from psycho ex Trevor who keeps wanting to get back together with her...
Even though Justin has a playboy outside he has a good heart and it just waiting for the right girl who happens to be Allie.
"Just always be waiting for me."
I love how Jean Haus incorporates some awesome songs into the books too.
The few things I did not care for were the ever annoying gray eyes, "Holy shit, Batmans" which are equivalent to "Sweet baby Jesus!" and the fact that Allie was so badass but really insecure too...

DNF @ 46% then skim read to find out how bad it got....
A FUCKING TRAIN WRECK!!
This book was just a
River and Sammy
Ok so you take some white trash people and every drama thing possible and throw it together and BAM this is your book.....
River (aka Twink) misses Sammy who left four years ago and she is now with Danny the psycho and doesn't love him or want to be with him but is stuck with him for reasons unknown at the beginning of the book...Danny moved himself in to River's house and lives there with her and her brother, Blaydon. Blaydon dates Maria who is a druggie along with Blaydon.
Sammy shows up back at home with BFF, Jasper, to as far as I could ever tell take care of his little brother Jase since he usually is with the Dad and to start a new business which rivals the business River's dad owns that her and Blaydon currently run. Why Jase never came to see the mom in 4 years Sammy was gone IDK....
Are you still following me?
Ok so as soon as Sammy shows up in town, Danny leaves for business (wow how convenient) and River decides to slut it up with Sammy and has sex with him almost immediately
(view spoiler)[ And the first time they have sex she lets him do her in the ass...Like WTF!
So the River's dad is MIA (view spoiler)[ I'm pretty sure he was killed by Danny and he used to rape or attempt to rape River and that was the reason River feels that she owes Danny (hide spoiler)]
This is what else happens in the book b/c at this point I started skimming and found out from JAnne and Sara what was happening....
-Danny kills Maria
-Blaydon kills himself
-River gets pregnant but Danny is supposedly sterile...
-Jase wound up being River and Blaydon's half brother
-Danny kidnaps River, Derek (River's friend) and Sammy save her
-River has baby and her and Sammy move in with Derek
-Danny shows back up and River kills him
-5 years later she gets pregnant and her 5 year old pushes her down the stairs b/c he's Danny's child and fucking crazy too and doesn't want to share her love with another kid
Nope I'm not kidding all this shit happens in the book...Now granted the writing wasn't terrible that's why it gets two stars but it had too much crazy in it for me... You may like it....I however, did not.

5 Overcoming Stars!
”Victory is in the battle”
Wow this book… What can I say other than it just moved me in ways that I didn’t expect… I laughed, I cried, my heart broke for the characters. I as well as most every other girl has felt a case of UGS growing up. I knew a boy who suffered from MD. I was 18 and just starting college when the September 11, 2001 attack happened. I know how that day affected me. I know people who joined the military and went off to war as a result of the attacks and I have seen the effects is has put on people who have return as well as their families.
This is one of those books that it breaks your heart but is so worth reading!
Fern suffers from Ugly Girl Syndrome (UGS) but has a heart made of gold. She is awkward but funny and so pure at the same time. She’s just a great human being in general.
"If God makes all our faces, did he laugh when he made me?"
She takes care of her cousin, Bailey, who unfortunately suffers from Muscular Dystrophy (MD). Bailey is hands down one of the BEST supporting characters ever! LOVED HIM! He has an absolutely wonderful sense of humor and you put him and Fern together and they have the best time…
"I’ve got Rocky Road Ice cream. It looks a little like poop. Can we become one with Rocky Road instead?”
“It does look a little like shit. Nuts and everything. Count me in.”
They assist Bailey’s dad Coach Sheen with his wrestling stuff and that’s how they grow up with Ambrose Young. Ambrose is a superstar in the wrestling world as well as hot stuff around the school.
Fern is in love with him and has been since they were 10. Unfortunately he isn't attracted to her.
After high school is out, Ambrose (aka Brosey, Brose, Hercules) decides to enlist in the army.
He comes back from the war a changed person.
”The lucky ones are the ones who don’t come back.”
Fern along with Bailey, help Ambrose accept who he is and remember who he was.
"She liked the option of flying without responsibility of saving the world"
"What good was flying if there was no one on the other end of the string?"
Because this review needs some humor, here ya go! Go read it!
Big props to my BBB, JAnne there with me to hold my hand when I was boohooing like a baby! Now on to my funny book….

Grace Sheridan is a 33 year old aspiring singer/actress who currently lives with her best friend Holly.
She meets up and coming heartthrob, Jack Hamilton and is smitten over the English actor. Only problem is he is only 24 and a hot commodity.
Jack is so sweet, hot and funny!
They go ahead and get together and the rest is just hi-jinx. They are hilarious together!
And LOTS of sexxy times....They even managed to make some of those encounters hilarious.....
I absolutely loved the relationship between Holly and Grace. You know its a great friendship when you call her an asshead! HAHA
Nick and Grace's friendship was hilarious too....Everyone loves the gay BFF!
Best advice I can give you regarding this book.....

4 Funny Stars
You have frumpy, 28-year old virgin lawyer, Lanie.
You have hot journalist, playboy Kyle.
You have Lanie's awful wench of a sister, Cassie.
And you have Cassie's boyfriend Brad, who is also Kyle's friend, Lanie's co-worker and love interest.
Lanie thinks Brad would be the perfect life partner for her. They have similar goals and work together and he is her ideal man.
Unfortunately Brad is dating mega bitch, moocher Cassie. Lanie knows a break-up is inevitable since Cassie is a serial cheater so she wants to be prepared for Brad when that happens. When Brad sets up his friend Kyle on a date with Lanie, she decides to enlist his help on "Operation get Brad." The problem is Lanie is boring and not feminine at all.
I absolutely loathed Cassie. Someone needed to tell her
But unfortunately her mom blew her head up and made her think she was top shit for selling cosmetics. The whole book I wanted Lanie to punch her in the twat and tell her
There was quite a bit of humor that came along the way of her trying to get with Brad. A few sad parts and a few small annoyances that caused eye rolls and WTF's... (view spoiler)[ She seems pretty naive and dumb to be a lawyer and puts up with too much shit from her piece of shit sister and mother. She comes first time during sex and Kyle thinks its the best sex he ever had blah blah blah even though he was previously like a male whore (hide spoiler)]
but for the most part a cute, nice read.

3.5 Final Rook and Ronin Stars
So you know how you absolutely loved the first and second books and hope the third will live up to their bar they set? Yeah, this one not quite....
Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed reading this one but I felt I had all sorts of mixed signals.
For Ronin to be a badass he somewhat turned into a puss as well. You are the front man! Act like it!
Rook is supposed to be all screwed up with her life from what Ford said but she seemed totally together to me. She had her game plan and got her ducks in a row just fine.
Spencer really didn't do much in this book.
Ford was weird but freaky as well in this one...I still don't know what to think about him. It's hard to picture a hot weirdo...
And Clare...Man, I hate Clare...I just want to say to Ronin....
The ending seemed a little too rushed. It was like Climax and then
The End. The finale could have been explained better than it was. Anyways overall I still love the series and love Rook and Ronin.
I will still be anticipating Spencer and Ford's books.

Why oh Why do I torture myself reading cliffhangers that have no release date on the next book???
I decided to read this knowing it was a cliffhanger since it was short. WHY!! WHY!!
I'm reading along and then bam. THE FUCKING END!! AGHHHH
I will say as of right now I want to find out what happens. Depending on how long it takes book 2 to come out I may forget the story or just not be interested at all anymore though...
Anyways, overall it was a decent NA read. Kinda reminded me of That Boy, Emerge, and maybe a little of More Than This.
You have the guy and girl who grew up together and fell in love and were BFF's, grew apart, did their own thing, got back together....then he goes to college to play baseball and she winds up at different college....That's all of the story you are getting from me...
I did take a few points away for the "its so big I'm not sure if it will fit" and "I'm a virgin but I'm having an orgasm the first time I do it and its so amazing blah blah blah"
I have not read the first in this series but I was told these can be read as a standalone so I was okay with it. Romeo is a hot MMA fighter... (I have this thing for hot MMA fighters too....mmmm hmm)
Juliet aka Jules is a lawyer/cop/karate master/twin sister to Wyatt who can't stand Romeo.
I liked this book with the exception of the "hick speak." I am from the south and I talk country enough myself that I don't want to read about it! I don't care if you are trying to make someone sound backwoods or not I hate reading ain't and dontcha and ya'll. For Juliet to be a lawyer she really was pretty dense as well. Is she an actual cop or a dispatcher since all she did was answer the phone and direct calls?
Anyways they meet up in Vegas and hook up. Then Romeo comes to hick town USA to train at the gym that Jules/Wyatt/Clay own with Clay to work on his ground game. He secretly wants to come there to see Jules though.
They hook up and start a secret relationship without Wyatt knowing. Oh yeah...
Then of course you have fight between the two and some mob drama to throw in there for good measure. That's when the action takes off..
This was a nice read that I overall enjoyed. Kele Moon knows how to write some smoking sex scenes...
I'll probably read a Tino or Nova book but likely not Wyatt since I can't handle the hickisms.
Another nice one by Colleen Hoover...I would complain about how it was too short and how I figured out the twist but you know what, Colleen is awesome and I am a major fangirl, plus she wrote this and gave it out free to her fans to that alone makes it pretty great.
Daniel is looking for his Cinderella.....He meets Sky's friend Six and has an instant connection with her. Except Holder says she's off limits...She isn't trying to make him into something he's not. They get along great.
"It's not my fault. She hates purses and she fist bumped me, then she made me push her on the damn merry-go-round."
They are going smoothly and then you get to the big drama bump in the road. I could have done without this bump. The book would have been just as good without this but whatever....Moving on.
It was just overall a enjoyable story to read. Daniel's family was pretty funny as well.

Carmine is a disgruntled teen who saw his mother being gunned down as a child. He doesn't do well with relationships and looks to acting out and drugs and drinking to dull his pain...

"Colpo di fulmine"

5 Smooches to Jace and Colt!
I really enjoy it when a book gives you some hot scenes but also tells a story and a good one. Double full falls completely into that category! Kindle is such a great author at telling you a M/M love story! I felt their joy, heartache and love all throughout this book.
Colt is a star quarterback at the University of Texas preparing to enter into the NFL. Unfortunately for him no one knows he’s secretly gay.
He is secretly in love with Jace who is a star cheerleader for UT.
Jace has been lusting over him too though! They hook up one day in the locker room and boy is that scene hot!!!! Then they see each other under secretly and go on a nice vacation together.
Colt is scared to come out to the world seeing as his dad is a homophobe, he lives in Texas (Yes the South is still somewhat behind on the whole equal rights thing but we are getting there!), and he’s a football player and worried it could mess with his career. Colt’s Dad- Larry
His dad finds out and it causes Colt to worry for Jace’s safety so he is pushed away. This part made me so sad!!
Fast forward 10 years and Colt is living a lie and miserable and unfortunately turning to alcohol as a coping mechanism. Jace is successful, out and proud but still sad and missing Colt.
Colt is about to get married…..
Colt realizes he misses and needs Jace and hopes he still has a chance.
He comes to see Jace and his reaction is….
Here is how I was feeling at this point…
But finally how I felt at the end…
I can’t wait to read more of this series!
