This was a really lovely romantic story that gripped me throughout. Anya is a pretty strong character that needs to overcome her past so she can enjoy some happiness. You will need to read this story to see what happens. Would love to see what happens next but I did like the way this book ended. 

I found this quite a refreshing story as it was based in Jamaica. ... Although the lingo did have me thinking!!!!

Falling For Bentley

By: Shawnte Borris



This has not been edited and may certainly change before publication. I hope that you all enjoy a little of Bentley!


One eye barely open, I glanced around the room, desperate for it to stop spinning. There’s a faint moan beside me, and when I carefully turned my head towards it, I saw brunette hair splayed across the pillow and down the back of a naked chick. My eyes slowly move down to the small of her back—my favorite part of a woman’s body.


I stopped when I recognized the Celtic tattoo and quickly lifted the sheet to see if I had my briefs on, I did. I slowly sat up to look for any evidence of last night’s shit show. No condom…no wrapper, thank God.  Lube and a vibrator? What the hell?

“What are you doing?” giggled Amanda as her cold claws rubbed my back. I tried to straighten out of her grip. “Baby relax, let’s finish what we started last night,” She whispered in my ear before kissing the side of my neck.

“Did we?”

“No, you passed out before the party really got started. I had to use my vibrator to finish the job.”

“Uh, sorry about that.” I pulled her hands off me.

“Why don’t you make it up to me, Bentley? Like the good ol’ days, back in high school. I miss this.” she growled, grabbing my dick.


I shot out of the bed and scrambled for my pants.

“Where are you going?” Amanda grabbed my shirt and threw it over herself.

“I...ah…I need to go.” I stuttered, trying to put my shoes on without falling flat on my face.

“Bentley.” Amanda whined, throwing my shirt at me.

Bang-Bang-Bang, “Bentley get your ass up. We gotta go.” Curtis yelled.

“Thank Christ.” I mumbled under my breath as I pulled my shirt over my head.


“That’s it? You’re going to leave me like this, wet and wanting you? Needing you to fill me?” moaned Amanda.

“Sorry, Amanda, but I gotta go. Curtis and I already made plans.”  I opened the door and looked at my best friend.

“Bentley Knight before you walk out that door, you better think long and hard. There will not be a third time.”

“There shouldn’t have been a second,” I toss over my shoulder and ducked just in time to miss a glass as it shattered on the wall in front of me. I closed the door and looked over to Curtis, laughing his ass off. “Let’s get the fuck out of here.”

This book contains four great stories. 

The Interlude- this is the story of how Natalie and the oh so hot Zach met. Although short this is a lovely intense story. 

The Interpretation- this is a lovely fun sisterly story of Natalie and Chloe. 

The Intermezzo- Natalie and Zach. I loved this story. 

The Misinterpretation- in this story we read about Adam and Chloe. Another lovely story. 

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Another piece of art written by this author. 

Received in return for an honest review.


This is a lovely sweet romantic story. This is the story of Chloe and Adams life told in reverse which was a nice refreshing change. 

Chloe is a fantastic character. I think a lot of us will relate to her as she is so real and so lively. Thoroughly loved Adam. He is such an intense character. 

Never read anything by this author so this was both a surprise and a joy to read. 

Received in return for an honest review.



You've asked for them, some have even begged for more of the Walker twins. 'Banded Together' is a continuation of the Rebel Walking Series that will give you insight on Talon and Eaven'swedding as well as the rest of the characters in the series. Taronand Ivy are not left out of this one and you'll quickly see the banter between them remains.

The previous books in the Rebel Walking Series should be read before this one for the best experience and optimal character development.


"Hey, baby, I can't wait ‘til you're officially Mrs. Walker." His deep whisper pulls me out of my almost asleep state. I roll over to face him and even though it's dark, I watch his face. Nose to Nose. "I'm already yours. You know this." So much has happened since he proposed. We were going to wait another year, but Talon is ready to make it official. I love his urgency—I'm ready, too—but I don’t want to rush it with everything that’s going on with the band and the trial. Rebel Walking lost their spot on the tour when Taron was arrested. We've spent the last five months, either in court or in limbo, waiting for something to happen. A few months ago Taron was released from all charges, but the Walker's haven't rested while the trial for Dylan has been on going. Luckily, this morning he was found guilty on multiple counts of attempted rape, attempted murder and countless other offenses. He will be spending many years in prison, which is where he belongs. The instant relief when the verdict was read was so peaceful. We should be celebrating, but everyone is too exhausted to do anything today.

"I know, but I want the world to know."

"They do. Are you kidding me? We're always together."

"We could just do something small at the lake house. We could walk down to the beach and get married next to the water—just have our family and the crew there to share it with us. Avery can be the flower girl. I’d have Taron, Holden, and Luke on my side and of course you’d have Ivy, Lilly, and Macy on yours."

 "You have this all planned out, don't you?" I sit up in bed and begin to think of all the stuff I'll need to do to pull this off.

"All of the important stuff, I do." He rolls onto his back, pulling my hands toward him. "Come here, baby."

I work my way into a straddle on top of the man who holds my whole heart. "We're not going to stress over this. Let's just keep it simple." I let his words soak in. I can't wait to be Mrs. Talon Walker and it really isn't my style to have a huge wedding, anyway. I figured he would've wanted one, but I'm relieved he doesn't. "Simple. I like it." His hands begin to roam over my body and I take the opportunity to rotate my hips just right so that he feels my warmth. Sleeping naked has its benefits.

"You wicked, wicked woman. Don't you dare tease me." His fingers pinch my nipples as he thrusts upward, reminding me what he's packing. His erection moves right where I want it to. "Oh, I'm not teasing." My breathy voice amuses him. "What's so funny?" This time it's my impatience that's obvious. "You're always so ready for me. You never disappoint."

"Damn straight. Have you ever seen yourself?" I lower my mouth to his chest and begin nibbling over his chest and neck. His hands continue to roam over my body, sending chills in every direction. My hair falls over my face and he uses his hand to swipe it to one side. I feel his hand leave me and his body stretch toward the nightstand right before he flicks on the light. He loves to watch me during sex. It strikes me to the depths of my soul when he does this. His stare pierces straight through my body the entire time. It's raw and so real, but I love it.

I lift my torso back up and watch him tuck his arms beside his head. My fingers run over and through the ridges of his defined stomach. He works hard to stay sculpted and I never miss the opportunity to truly appreciate his efforts.

My fingers follow the muscles straight to where our hips meet. I slowly lift my hips and enjoy that his shaft lifts to the exact spot I need it to be. Sliding down onto him, I close my eyes and love the feeling of him filling me completely. With my hands splayed across his abs, I begin to move slowly.

My focus on how he feels is consuming me. I open my eyes to watch him, not surprised when I find him staring deep into my eyes. Keeping my eyes locked with his, I continue my motions. He allows me to move completely on my own; I love when he gives me control.

Missing Pieces review

This is my third book by this author and I just love her books. 

This is the story of Blaine and Maddie. Both have had a nightmare childhood. They are such strong characters yet need a friend at times. This book had me cringing at times. I look at my 17 year old and think there is no way she could handle what is thrown at Blaine and Maddie. 

Loved the storyline and the shocks the author throws at me through this book. 

Totally recommend this stand alone book.

Goodbye Girl review

This is a truly lovely romantic story. I so love a story with a hunky cowboy:)

Rachel's running from her past and ends up finding peace at a ranch. I just love Colin & his family. In my head they are the ideal family living on a ranch:) 

What a bonus that this isn't a cliff hanger but there will be more in this series:)

I've not read any books from this author before but I'll definetly be looking into her other books.

My review of The Barter System

Oh my dayz!! I received this for a blog tour & I'm so glad I did.

Riya O’Connell requests applications from men around the country willing to participate in the research she needs for her dissertation on Male Sexuality. This is the start of an emotional and exploratory journey for her. 

I totally loved Riya. Such a strong character. 

As for the men they were totally hot... All of them. Although Riya left a little piece of her heart with each of them she became stronger as the time passed. 

Although at first I found this a bit surreal I totally loved this book. Storyline was brilliant and I was totally delighted that this was a long story. I had to message author during part of it to say she made me cry!! I really didn't want it to end. However I loved the ending. 

This is the first book I've read by this author but it won't be the last. I was totally glued to this book.

Dirty Little Lies

This is the first book I've read by this author &

It certainly won't be the last. 

Ok let's get the only negative I find about this book... The description/synopsis of this book does not do this book any justice. 

Positives... It's a bloody brilliant book. I really don't want to say much as the surprise element of this book totally surprised me & I want they for you too. 

I will say this book has a hot male and a hot female. The sex is great in this book. 

Highly recommend this book. 

Received in return for an honest review.

Hudson review

I loved The Barter System but if it's possible I loved this even more. Be warned... Make sure you got time to read all this as you won't want to leave it for even a minute.

One of the great things about this book is we get to read more about the characters from The Barter System. The characters in this book are fantastic. The story gripped me from the start to the finish. It was non stop action in  this book. Did I mention Hudson is oh so hot?? They females are also fit as f**k. 

I HIGHLY recommend this book. 

Why oh why have I not heard of this author before? I could keep gushing about this author but instead I'm gonna go see what other books she's written.
