New Release + 5 Star ARC Reviews ☆☆☆☆☆ Sharing Rylee by D. Kelly

five gold starsReviewed by Jacqui

ARC received for an honest review
This latest book from D. Kelly is an absolute must read. The story is about an unconventional love between Rylee, Pete, and Nick. The characters are from Chasing Cassidy and reading it will help with the following of the story.
Rylee Stafford has always known she wanted a happily ever after, but not in the traditional way. Eight years of therapy have helped Rylee to understand what she wants and that it is all okay. The hard part for her is to see if others will understand her way.
Enter Nick and Pete. Nick has been in love with Rylee for as long as he can remember. Best friends with her brother Zack, he is willing to wait for Rylee to decide if he is what she wants. Pete is another friend that Rylee hooked up with at Zack and Cassidy’s wedding. He also is in love with Rylee and wants to continue their relationship. Rylee is in love with both men and wants them both. But Nick and Pete have a plan also.
This is an amazing story of the power of love. When you love as deeply as D. Kelly has written in Sharing Rylee, there are no obstacles in your way. This book is so well written that the complicated love story between these three seems normal. I cheered for Rylee in her coming to the realization she no longer has to hide. She could face her fears and get through this as a stronger person.
Well done D. Kelly!! I am in love with this story and everything about it. One of the best books I have read this year. Thanks for the chance to read it early.

Once again D. Kelly has sent me on an emotional roller coaster. This book is a must read.  The characters will suck you into their world so you can see their story with them. I love how bits and pieces of them are released a little bit at a time. This book is beautifully written, the saucy parts are hot and steamy. The main story line of the book keeps you intrigued so much so you may not want to put the book down ever.

Rylee, is a strong willed girl just trying to find herself self and her place in the world. She knows what she wants and what she needs to get it, but can’t seem to bring her-self to open the door to make her dreams come true. Nick knows what Rylee needs and is willing to give her anything she wants; after all he gave her his heart in high school, he just can’t figure out why he’s not enough. When Pete re-appears into Nick’s life and whisks Rylee away for a few nights of fun under the sheets, Nick can hardly stand it.  Nick wants more, Pete wants more and Rylee has friend zoned them both. How can you fall in love with 2 people and not break anyone’s heart.

Synopsis

Do happily ever after’s always have to be so traditional?
Rylee Stafford has asked herself this question since she was eighteen years old. Now, at twenty-eight she still doesn’t have an answer. One thing she knows for sure is even if she can have the unconventional relationship she’s always dreamed of, it would never fly with her family. Her sexual proclivities would never be accepted by them or their social circle.
The truth is Rylee is tired of hiding her feelings. Tired of wanting what she can’t have and so tired of feeling abnormal because she wants a different kind of love.
She’s kept her secret well hidden, especially from Nick, her on again off again love affair. Her secret isn’t their only stumbling block, though—Rylee’s also met someone new. His name is Pete and he sets her heart and soul on fire; he’s sexy, smart, possessive, and he wants her. No matter how much she cares for them she can’t bring herself to tell them the truth. The only way to Rylee’s heart is to have a relationship with both men.It’s only when Rylee takes her annual vacation does she finally realize her happiness is worth more than what anyone thinks of her. Now the only question is: will Rylee’s alternate lifestyle alienate everyone she loves? Or will she be accepted for the person she’s always been deep down inside?

Blog Page Break 2Excerpt 

“Nick, I think you should go.”

I feel like she punched me in the gut, but I’m going to take Zack’s lead on this one. He never let Cassidy pull too far away, and I’m not going to let Rylee shut me out now.

Silently, I get dressed. She’s still standing by the bathroom with her arms across her chest. She doesn’t want to get close to me because she doesn’t want to admit her feelings for me.

“Rylee,” I say, walking toward her at a slow pace. She eyes me up and down and presses herself as close to the wall as possible. She’s not getting away from me.

I pull her into my arms and crush my lips to hers. My hand weaves into her sexy, just-fucked hair, and I pull her tightly to my lips. I kiss her with all the passion I’ve had building inside of me for years and she feels it. I know she does because she hasn’t stopped whimpering the entire time her tongue has been dueling with mine. When I finally slow the kiss, she whimpers even more, and when I slowly pull away, her fingers go immediately to her lips as if she’s trying to savor the magic we just shared.

“I’ll go for now, Ry, but not for long. I’m going to check in on you every day, but I’ll give you space and stay away. Don’t take too long because I want you now more than ever, Rylee. I always have and I always will.”

 
I place a soft kiss to her forehead and leave.

New Release + 5 Star ARC Review ✽ Lasting Lyric (The Downtown Series #4)by TJ West

Lasting Lyric (The Downtown Series Book 4) T.J West

 ARC received for an honest review

 

Oh T.J. West you have done it again in your Downtown Series. This time with Slim and Lyric. I fell in love with these characters. Two people who started out as friends, or in this case band member and manager, who decided that resisting what they have is pointless. Who better to fall in love with than your best friend who kicks your ass at video games?!

 

Slim McQuaid is the guitar player for JINKS. Easy going and happy he forms a strong friendship with their new manager Lyric Newton-Crow that has him wanting more. After the bus accident that sent Lyric to the hospital and away from Slim for months he is ready to show her that he wants more than just the friendship.

 

Lyric is the daughter of famous parents and siblings. Never getting the acting bug she takes a job as JINKS manager and follows her dreams of the music industry. Her dreams also lead her to Slim. His easy going demeanor and ability to lose gracefully at video games sparks her interest. But she is his manager. Nothing can happen. Or so she thinks.
Once again TJ West weaves us a sizzling tale of a sexy rocker and the woman who loves him. Filled with the type of steamy scenes and storytelling you love from the author, this book will not disappoint. This is one of my favorite rocker series. Add to that the covers create an image for you when you read, what is not to like?! So once again TJ West, thank you for giving me the chance to read the next installment of the Downtown Series. Rock on sista friend!!

Synopsis

 ***Warning- Not intended for those under 18 years. Extreme language and sex.  ***This book is part of a series- book 4.

 

It was a spark neither one of us saw coming…

It was a love neither one of us expected…

 

It’s a competition of wit and intelligence.  Our attraction undeniable and our chemistry magnetic.  Very much different in our upbringings, so naturally the odds would be stacked against any kind of romance.

 

I’m the rock star and she’s every bit the good girl.  We respect each other, but push each other’s buttons.  Our friendship is unconventional, but something inside of me tells me that Lyric is my perfect fit.

 

It only takes one moment to change everything, one moment to turn my whole world upside down.  What happens when you fall in love with your best friend?  Are you prepared to handle the emotions?

 

She’ll be the lyric I can’t shake…

Excerpt

 

She giggles again. “Night, Hot Stuff.”

“G’night, Charlie.” I may have said goodnight, but my body is not ready for it. My fingers itch to get a feel of her belly, her skin. It’s all so fucking wrong, though. Why hadn’t I ever felt this way for her before? Why now? Why are my eyes suddenly wide open for the very first time? How did I not see her before the accident? I want things to go back to the way they were. I don’t want to have these feelings for her…I just can’t help it, though. I need to feel her. A need that is so wrong, yet feels so right. Very slowly, I inch the tips of my fingers to the edge of her cami. I pause. I don’t want her getting the wrong idea, even though it is the wrong idea. One finger. Two fingers, then three. The rest follow suit and trickle their way a little up her cami. Lyric flinches and her body stiffens. I stop. “Sorry,” I mumble. “My fingers cold?”

“No,” she whispers out. “Why are you touching me there?”

Crap, she hates it. She doesn’t want this. I give her my best answer, anyways. “You’re soft.”

“Can’t sleep if you keep tickling me.”

Tickling. I bite back a laugh and proceed gliding my fingers across her belly. Holy fuck, her body is soft as hell. I fucking love it. “Tickles, huh?”

“Yes.” I can tell she is trying hard not to laugh. She’s very squirmy and it’s making my cock hard. Hope she can’t feel it. “Stop it.”

“Okay,” I chuckle. “Night again.”

She sighs, “Night.”

“Is it okay if I just keep it there? I promise, no tickling.”

“Fine,” she groans, and I bet she has a smile on her face, along with an eye roll.

I can’t stop skimming her belly and flirting with her. “It’s, like, really soft.”

She snaps, “Slim!”

My body shakes with silent laughter. “Yeah, I’m done. Go to sleep.”

“That’s what I’m trying to do.”

“Sorry,” I chuckle.

My hand stays planted on her belly, and I hope that tomorrow night we’ll be able to do this again, and maybe…just maybe, I’ll inch further up her cami and hit my jackpot. My flirtation is going to test our relationship, but will Lyric decide she’ll want to flirt back and possibly take our friendship to the next level? Only one way to find out.
