“The wildly talented Jewel E. Ann consistency finds a way to level up. Every book she writes leaves me desperate for more! The Life That Mattered is a must-read.” – Ella James, USA Today bestselling author

The Life That Mattered, an all-new emotional and poignant novel from Jewel E. Ann, is available now!

LifeThatMattered_EBook

Sex isn’t love.

Love isn’t sex.

And friendship is neither.

The son of a French Olympic skier and a Malaysian fashion designer, Ronin Alexander has lived the life of a nomad, traveling the world to find his next adventure.

Life takes a dramatic turn when he meets Evelyn, a beautiful scientist who owns a bath shop in Aspen, Colorado. They defy all the rules of relationships, falling hard and quickly in love.

Their world intertwines with Evelyn’s two best friends, the Governor and his soon-to-be wife. The four become close—very close.

When tragedy strikes, things from their pasts are unveiled—unimaginable truths and the grim realization that life will never be the same.

Jewel E. Ann steps into another dimension with this mind-bending thriller, a provocative story that pushes boundaries and tests the true meaning of love.

My Review

Y’all I’m in tears as I write this.😭 I legit don’t know how on earth I am supposed to function, how in the ever lovin’ world I am supposed to get up every day and adult until I know what happens.  Until I know how this plays out. Evelyn “Evie” and Ronin’s story will burrow into your heart ♥️ from the moment they meet and you won’t be able to let them go. EVER! 

When we first meet Evelyn she’s on a trip with her best friends Lila and Graham. They are a huge part of her life. Lila whom she has known for most of her life and Graham who she briefly dated in college for like a second before realizing they are better at being best friends. There is such a strong bond and history with them intertwined over the years. 

Ronin Alexander is this amazingly gorgeous, world traveling man, a super hero adventurer. A chance encounter over bubble tea and hot buns on his last day in Vancouver before leaving for a new job in Aspen, he meets the beautiful Evie -and later that night Lila and Graham. He knew from the first look across the table in the tea shop,  this body soap making scientist would change his life forever. But Ronin was keeping secrets from Evie. From day one he’d been hiding behind secrets and lies to protect her. What happens when the secrets and lies start to pile up? When he has to look back on every decision he’s made would he change anything? 

Evelyn’s character was phenomenal. She was so strong. She was in her mid thirties and had her crap together. She was successful and had a really cool business. She has her good friends, her parents. Then she meets this amazing man. Ronin was everything she was missing and didn’t even realize she was missing until she found him. GAH! They were nothing short of spectacular together. Every touch , every kiss, every moment they had was pure magic. I couldn’t have loved this couple more. They are perfect together. I loved their love. I love the way they view the word love. What it meant to them as a couple. You will know what I’m talking about when you read this. 

When things began changing I really started to get terrified because I remembered back to the prologue and I’m not gonna lie I’m scared y’all! I have a feeling I’m in for the big D. Yup, DEVASTATION!  I wanna beg, borrow and steal, do whatever I can to ensure everything is okay at the end of book two. Because right now I AM NOT OKAY!! 

PSA- Check on your book buddies that just finished book one y’all, because we are not okay right now. 😭We need to form a circle of friends and hug it out, let the feelings flow my sisters. 😢😭😢😭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- I’m officially in AWE!! Jewel Ann’s books always do this to me! I know going in I’m gonna get an emotional beat down! ( and she served it to us with a sweet little smile on her face) This was emotional, but it was funny and hot too. It was also so happy and  swoony and frustrating. That Cliffy though! GAHHH! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Ronin was the most adorable gentleman and then Alpha  AF in the sheets, or the shower or the floor. Holy Hot Dang!Talk about moanin for Ronin! Y’all it was the hottest thing ever! 🔥😍🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- 🌪🌪🌪🌪🌪OMG!! I literally was bawling 😭 my eyes out at this cliffy. I need to know what happens like I need Air in my lungs.

LTM - AN

ExcerptI wasn’t opposed to the occasional drunken one-night stand, but not with Evelyn. We weren’t drunk, and I wasn’t okay with an arbitrary time in the future that I may or may not see her again. “I’ll walk you to your door,” Evelyn said as she turned off her Jeep. “God …” I laughed, shaking my head. “That’s messed up. Now I feel a huge urgency to get my own vehicle. I think I’ll go tomorrow to buy one just so you don’t ever have to walk me to my door again.” She climbed out. “I don’t have to stop at your door. We don’t have to play by the rules of dating. I think we’re past that age. How old are you?” I found her hand and led her to the front door. “Thirty-five.” “I’m thirty-four. Have you ever been married?” We stopped at my door and faced each other. “No. You?” She shook her head. “The rules don’t apply once you’re past thirty.” “The rules?” Evelyn grinned. “The courting shit. The baseball game.” “The baseball game?” My head canted to the side. “Yeah. The sexual bases? First base is kissing. Second base is—” “Yes.” I fished my keys from my pocket. “I’m familiar with the bases.” “Well, I don’t know if you’re a fan of baseball or not, but I am.” I unlocked my door and motioned for her to go inside. She wet her lips and stepped into my condo without an ounce of hesitation. “You’re inviting me in. So you are a fan of baseball.” Not so much. Skiing, football (soccer), rugby, cycling, tennis … but not baseball. However, something told me Evelyn might make me a baseball fan. “Are you sure you’re living here?” She glanced around at the sparse furnishings of my two-bedroom condo. “I never stay in one place long. No need to own much. It’s just that much more to sell or move.” Books. I owned books and a place to sit and read them. My parents didn’t believe in letting Julien and I watch television while we were growing up. Julien embraced art. I embraced fiction—mysteries and sci-fi. “What do you consider not long?” She ran her fingers along the back of my leather recliner before dropping her bag to the floor and slipping off her jacket. “Three to five years is a nice stay.” I tossed my coat onto one of two barstools at my kitchen counter. “Okay. So our marriage will be short.” Her teeth trapped her full bottom lip. “Probably.” I’d dated enough women to know there existed a sequence of events that took place way before the M word should ever be discussed. I’d never reached the point of discussing the M word. Not even with my longest relationship, which lasted two years. Two years and we didn’t talk about marriage. I was out of my realm of experience with Evelyn. We joked about marriage, but who joked about that? Then there was a baseball discussion happening, and I didn’t even like baseball, but I waited with restless anticipation for Evelyn to make her point. Something told me it could be brilliant. “Kenny was a guy I dated my first year in college. He played baseball.” I could not have cared less about this Kenny guy, but he brought her back to the baseball talk, so I folded my arms over my chest, leaned against the counter, and gave her my full attention as she walked in slow circles around my furniture. A predator with calculated moves. Who was I to judge? I walked into her shop that day and basically said we needed to expedite our dating status—laid out my plans to eat dinner with her, close down bars, and sip hot chocolate. “He was a solid hitter. Always got on base, but he never hit a home run. I honestly think he lacked the confidence to go for it. His coaches told him to just get on base, so that’s what he did because that’s what you do when you’re young like that. You spend a lot of time on the bases.” Were we still talking about baseball in the literal sense? “I think once you hit your thirties, no one should judge if you just hit it out of the park your first time up to bat.” Her lips twisted as she stopped in front of me. “The goal is to hit it home. If you can do that, then why the hell not, right?” I thought I understood the metaphor. But if I was wrong, I could get thrown out of the game. “Can I get you a drink?” Evelyn shook her head. My eyes narrowed, studying her for a few seconds. “First base is fine.” She shrugged. Fuck me …

A Lovely Obsession Release Blitz & Review

🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

A LOVELY OBSESSION by CoraLee June is LIVE and FREE in KU!

What a thrilling, twisted, and tantalizing tale CoraLee June weaves.A Lovely Obsession is a BANG-UP BOOK that blazes with fire, burns with angst, and bleeds beauty. So INTENSE and INTOXICATING. This tale was my DRUG and I could not take enough hits of this HEADY HIGH. My heart raced the whole time reading. I was UTTERLY ADDICTED to the captivating characters and pulse-pounding plot.” ~Bookalicious Babes

My guardian angel is a devil in disguise.

He hates me. He protects me.

He watches me.

My stalker is obsessed with keeping me safe. He calls me his prettiest debt.

An assassin in the notorious Bullet gang, he uses his empire to control my life. Everything I know is a lie.

What started as a debt turned into something more. What started as regret turned into obsession.

Ambition is his muse and I am his conscience. Our past may bind us together, but his enemies will tear us apart.

My guardian angel is a devil in disguise.

He hates me. He protects me.

And I think I love him.

My Review

O-M-G!!!I need book two like ASAP!! I mean everything about this book, starting page one, actually the blurb. I was like “ah hell this ones keeping me up tonight.”  Hunter (so appropriately named BTW) and Roe’s story is absolutely unlike ANYTHING else out there right now. It’s dark and raw and twisted. It’s gritty and suspenseful. This book will literally take you from your gut wrenched up in knots to your stomach filled with the flutter of butterflies courtesy of our main hero Hunter. 

Hunter and Roe were bound by a connection that started the day she was born. Unbeknownst to her she was Hunter’s obsession, his self imposed debt, keeping her safe was his life’s mission. So from a distance he watched, she was his “prettiest debt” after all, he would do anything and everything to keep her safe. Until one day he had to come out of the shadows.

Hunter was gorgeous, yet mysterious. He was brash and controlling and a bit rough, but immediately on the flip side gentle and caring towards Roe’s safety. He was Alpha AF and brooding. Like you get the feeling he’s this damaged broken man out to get revenge for the past, but you know inside lies a gooey chocolate center that only Roe has the ability to melt. My heart broke for this character. 

“Our kiss tasted like salt and sadness.”

Roe’s character is amazing. She’s tough and smart and totally badass, all of which I don’t think she even realizes. She’s this rare gem of a girl. She’s reserved yet wild at the same time. She’s lonely, yet has her pick of the guys if she wants. She wants more from her life but she hasn’t necessarily ever thought she would have more. When she meets Hunter it’s not under great circumstances. She calls him her “stalker.” Yet she’s intrigued by this beautifully terrifying man. He’s such a contradiction.

She doesn’t know if she hates him or wants him from one minute to thenext? She just suspects he’s grappling with those same conflicting emotions. What happens when outside dangers threaten her safety? Can Roe handle the truth when she finds out why Hunter has had this obsession with her for all these years? How will Roe take it when Hunter makes all decisions for both of them? 

“You’re releasing me of my debt. I’m releasing you of me.”

I literally ran the gamut of emotions with this book friends. There was so much chemistry and longing between these characters. GAAHH!  It was phenomenal the push and pull for so long. The fight they put up. Hells yeah!! This book is packed with suspense and angst too. I was thinking and had so many theories floating around in my head. I kept internally looking around the next corner for what was going to happen next. It was so good, I couldn’t have guessed!  Then the cliffhanger and the end!! NOOO this wasn’t supposed to happen this way. Now I need book two like, well yesterday! 🙏🏻Hunter and Roe my heart is devastated right now. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- Obsession I’m officially Obsessed. This book was everything but more. It was so full of lies, lies, and more lies. It was full of action. All those secrets led to suspense, angst, and  GAH the sex! Man the banter, blood, tears, sexual tension. All the plots for revenge, I felt like I was full of frustration! For so many things at different times. The characters are fantastic and complex and I can’t wait for more! I’m literally on edge from the end of this book!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! HOLY FREAKIN SEVENTH CIRCLE OF HELL!! I mean like grab your book and chuck your panties at the door to avoid changing them over and over!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪CLIFFHANGER! CLIFFY Your heart will not be happy at the end. 😭💔😭

My Review

Are you Puckin’ kidding me!! I knew before I even cracked the first page I was gonna love this book. I mean HELLO!  It’s my BTU crew baby! 😍 Hot Hockey players, coven conversations. This entire cast of loyal and amazing friends, really they’re more like actually extended some non-blood family. The bonds between these BFF’s and BFFL’s are not only hilarious and crazy,  but sweet and protective and just absolutely perfect!  

When you read a love story from one of the BTU crew just know your in for a wild smash up of what feels like a little bit of the best parts of national lampoons anything, the jersey shore, the amazing race, and maybe a bit of  the bachelor (cause their dates be bomb y’all.) 

IT’S EVERYTHING Y’ALL

Jase and Melody’s story was all I could have hoped for and more. It was sweet and yummy. It gave me goosies. But boy oh boy  did it make me fan myself too.🔥 It gave me some drama and some angsty feels. I just predicted we were heading a certain way about ⅔ in and I was worried. (I wasn’t wrong) in my guess. I was just concerned about how this all would play out. 

I mean  I have loved Jase since Power Play. JD’s twin is a spectacular species to gander at ladies,  but he’s also a total sweetheart. He loves his family, his friends and he’s so talented on the ice it’s unreal. 

BTW I loved his wooing ways! (Won’t say more but gah!! 😍)

Melody Brighly was a Star. She lit up a room and Jase noticed her right away. Now her upbringing in comparison to Jase’s was polar opposites, but I love how she fell as hard for his family as she did for him. I know the secrets she’d been keeping were weighing on her. Jase worked hard to break down her resistance and they were perfect together. Like mashed taters and gravy. 

When the secrets started unfolding, I was as devastated as all the characters were. I cried y’all! These two were precious! I needed them to make it, and the thought of something happening to de-rail that is terrifying. I love how with each chapter we see our H and h both unselfishly sacrifice things for the other out of love. I was on the edge of my seat, tears in my eyes, waiting, praying, crossing toes, eyes and fingers. Whatever was necessary in hopes for my babies to work it out!! In tru Alley fashion,(*pause while I drink wine straight from bottle*) she made us sweat it for a minute before bringing us all back together again!! 

Totally Alley ⬆️

It was worth it. I would do it to myself all over again! On purpose!! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐- BTU crew is in the house bae-bay!! So this was ah-may-zing!! I flew through because I just couldn’t help myself. These are my people. 😍🔥😍

🔥🔥🔥🔥-  Jase is hot beyond all reasoning! Melody and Jase together we’re just over the top flaming hot! 🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪 No Cliffy Baby! HEA

See Ya Later Taters!!

My Review

Holy Cheese Sticks On Pizza Friends!! I plowed through this sizzling sweet story! I loved it! The one-nighter turns to forever love. It’s one of my favorites. Now was it that simple, absolutely not! But that’s what made it so much fun to read about. 

Porter and Doris”Dory” first meet when they both have a rare night off. Him from his seven-year-old daughter and Dory from working her multiple jobs. They immediately hit it off and decided to have a one night stand. Neither are looking for any kind of a relationship AT ALL and it’s not like they’re gonna see each other again, right? Of course they have a run-in, the best ever!! Talk about awkward. 😬

What I loved about both Porter and Dory is although both of their paths were a bit different, they both carried emotional scars from growing up. This did help to mold them into the people that they became as adults and they were both wonderful, loving and caring people. It’s just unfortunate that Porter was always looking over his shoulder, or next to him to see if those he cared about had run off and left him yet. It was also sad because anytime anything nice happened for Dory, she was always waiting for the other shoe to drop. 😭

This story is engaging and hot, it’s fast paced and funny. It’s serious and even had some moments that definitely pulled some tears out of me. I got to get some updates and funny times with all my favorites. Foster, Wren, Winston, Drew, and Sully. Sassy little Kyrie, Porter’s daughter stole quite a few of the scenes. Get ready to fall for Porter and Doris. 😍

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- GAHHH! I can’t get enough of Teagan Hunter’s writing! That’s all!! It’s just amazing! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-Porter and Dory are smokin! Positively on fire!🔥😍🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- HEA!! Yay!! I love it! 

Meet Teagan Hunter
I’m a Missouri-raised gal, but currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband and 9-year-old dog. I spend my days begging him for a cat, and I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.
Writing is my passion, and this is just the beginning of my journey.

Excerpt

“You still smell the same, you know. I hate you most days, but I can’t forget how fucking amazing you smelled.” I brush back her hair with my fingertips, and I can’t miss the small tremor that runs through her body. I affect her. This is good, and I plan to use this to my advantage. “Or how good you looked underneath me.” Her chestnut hair still shines like I remember, and I can easily visualize how it looks twisted around my fingers. How her cheeks heated up to a nice pink after I made her come… and don’t get me started on her legs looking like sex in these heels and how good they would look wrapped around my neck. Fuck. I’m kidding myself if I say she doesn’t affect me and doesn’t make my dick hard at the sight of her. Snap out of it Jaxson. Now isn’t the time. “Tell me I actually meant nothing to you, and I’ll go away.”

My Review

Absolutely Unputdownable! Remarkable! Phenomenal!! Erica is one of my absolute favorite authors. I totally have a fastest one-click finger in the south when it comes to her books. Barely Breathing is my new favorite book of hers (At least until her next one comes out)  River and Jax’s story sucked me in from the first paragraph of the prologue and I instantly knew I was in for an emotional ride. I was lucky enough to early read this fantastic book, yet still I keep finding myself going back to certain parts of the book, because I’m not ready to let Jax and River go just yet. That’s how much these characters will stick with you. 

From the outside one would think River has it all. She’s gorgeous and engaged to Harry, a successful executive that works for her company. However this marriage will be to a man chosen by her controlling father. River has been suffering under her father’s control. It’s devastating the things this woman has endured. Y’all my heart just hurts to even think about it all. 

When her grandfather died leaving her to run the company, pushing her father out of his CEO position. He is livid and put a plan in place to take back control. The loveless arranged marriage to Harry is a part of that plan. She must figure out a way out of this mess and out from under her shady AF father’s thumb. In order to protect Jax, River unselfishly disappears for two years, breaking her own heart while leaving him shocked, devastated and brokenhearted and furious at her. Jax appears back into her life two years later just when she has her plans all figured out flipping her whole world on its side, will River lean on Jax for help or will she forget how to breathe and shut down? 

Jax has spent the last two years broken, bitter and twisted up over one that ran away. He doesn’t know why she took off like a thief in the night , but now that he’s got his sights on her again he decides he wants revenge. He wants to punish her and bring a world of hurt her way like she did to him.

Jax is so hot y’all! Like tattoos under a business suit, smokin’ hot in the sack.GAH!! Loves his sister. Yeah! Everything about this guy is super hot. The tension that radiates off him and River. Holy god! 🔥

This book will have you hanging on the edge. Told in dual POV, going between present time and back two years ago to where their story first began. It will have you panting, swooning and fanning yourself one minute as you get caught up in their sweet and romantic whirlwind romance.

Then have you ready to chuck your beloved kindle right at the wall the very next chapter next. ( don’t worry it’s my prized possession so it’s safe. I just screamed obscenities) From one minute to the next you have no clue Wtf is happening?

 Prepare yourself my friends… you won’t stop reading, forget adulting or anything else until you’ve devoured every single word. River, Jax and the amazing secondary characters. I absolutely can’t wait for more from this crew. Can a person die of anticipation ?!?! I need Liam’s book, like yesterday. LOL

 

Barely Breathing is the perfect title…Hell,  I was breathless for most of this freakin book. Either panting cause of it’s sheer blissful hotness. I mean double damn!! 🔥😍🔥 or I was holding my breath in suspenseful outrage. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- Five Stars… pssh that’s NOT nearly enough. I’m throwing in a sixth one! This story deserves ALL the stars! River and Jax’s story is full of angst and suspense. It’s got tension for days, frustration and heat and revenge. Plus a super hot hero with tattoos and a sexy, sassy heroine and fabulous secondary characters. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- GAAHH!! Jax and River are hotter than the seventh circle of hell my friends. Like the stuff naughty dreams are made of. So sweet dreams 🔥🔥🥵

Barely Breathing Early Review

Blurb

Buried deep under a mountain of lies, I’m struggling for air.

My life, my choices are being dictated by my father.

I was forced to give up the man I love in order to protect him and now I must marry a man who I hate.

I thought I had found a way out.I thought my time in this gilded cage was almost over.

Then one day Jaxson Holden walks back into my life, flipping it upside down.

He’s angry, I get it.

But he has no idea how much I have to lose—how much he has to lose with him coming back.

Now I need to find a way to hold on while I’m gasping for breath as my past and present collide.

Just keep breathing, River.

Just keep breathing. . .

Enemies Release Blitz & Review

Enemies - RB banner

Stone Reeves was my neighbor, and I’ve hated him since sixth grade.

Enemies, an all-new enemies to lovers stand-alone from New York Times bestselling author Tijan, is available now!

ENEMIES ECOVER

Gorgeous and charismatic, he became the town’s football god, while I became the town’s invisible girl.

He went to a Division 1 school for football, while my father was fired by his father.

His team won the National Championship, while my mother died the same day.

He was a first round pick for the NFL …

… while I made the worst decision of my life.

Now I’m in Texas trying to pick up the pieces of my life.

But, Stone is here.

Stone is everywhere.

It doesn’t matter that disaster has struck my life again.

It doesn’t matter that he’s the one trying to console me.

It doesn’t matter that he’s the nation’s newest football obsession.

Because for me, he always has been and always will be my enemy.

Enemies - AN

My Review

Whenever I see that Tijan has a new book coming out I immediately one-click it,  I sign up to read it. I do everything I can to ensure it hits my kindle ASAP. Because I’m that big of a Tijan fan. There is not any book that she has written that I have not loved. Enemies was no exception. This was a Bully Romance fans dream book with some sports romance sprinkled in. So basically the perfect combo! It had everything you could possibly want and then some. So settle in, grab a blanket, some tissues, snacks, chocolate and wine. It’s going to be a great night of reading! You will not stop until you have devoured this book without stopping for anything. 

Stone Reeves is everything! Like football royalty,  a mere god among men. Gorgeous, charming, in the best shape of his life. Living out his dream as a first round draft pick in the NFL. He grew up best friends with Dusty until he left to achieve his dreams. Fast forward years later and he is forced to reach out to his old BFF and in not a friendly “I missed you old pal” way. That adds to the hatred Dusty already has towards him for the ways his family wronged hers. The next blow comes when he is forced to find her and deliver the most tragic news imaginable. The chain of events this sets off gives him a sense of responsibility towards her and he feels the need to protect Dusty. Their relationship takes a physical turn as a method of protective healing for Dusty more than anything. What will happen when the lines start to blur for these sworn enemies? Will Stone be able to just walk away when Dusty is better and what will his family have to say about everything? 

Dusty. Oh this character y’all. From page one her character brought tear after tear out of me. How does one person continually take hit after devastating hit. This gorgeous girl did, and was emotionally damaged for it. She was suffering. She was the poster woman for PTSD. But she was also strong too. She hated Stone Reeves. When she went to college in town where he was the ultimate football god she had every intention of staying far far away from him in fact. Life had other plans. 

“Because for me, he always has been and always will be my enemy.”

On the second worst day of her life Stone was there,  and He would deliver the blow that had the power to end her. When she is forced to rely on him to take care of her it’s her nightmares come true. She just wants to be left alone to break, Stone isn’t having it. 

She could spar with Stone like nobody else. It was hot and full of need and fire. That is where she found her strength. She needed him, even if she didn’t realize it. Without Stone she wouldn’t have made it through what all she had to go through. She found comfort in his arms and solace when he used her body for both their pleasures to take away the pain, even if only for a little while. 

This book is an incredible journey about Dusty’s healing and growth as a character. Tijan gives us an emotional tale about two people whose lives were weaved together as children growing up. The details from those shared childhood stories and memories were so beautiful and special and they brought such an incredible element to the story. Each having their own unique experiences and special memories. So perfect y’all. (You will totally know what I’m talking about when you read it). Stone and Dusty’s quest to love. Now that was a hard fought battle. They had so many secrets, emotions, anger, hatred and hurts between them. 

But Stone being the telamon he is and Dusty being much more resilient that she would have thought, can overcome anything. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐️-This is like Bully/ Friends to lovers romance all in one! There is not really much sweet or sugar, there is sad and real life tragedy! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG!!Stone and Dusty are Fire in the sheets though! HATE SEX! 🧨 Nuff said💥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! After your heart has been beat to hell and back and then turned all around and inside out. You will  get your will earned HEA!

KMBlurb

Get swept up in this insta-love holiday romance that will make you believe in the magic of New Year’s.

Jax is the modern-day equivalent of a Prince Charming, but he views himself as a beast. He rescues a beauty from the side of the road and never expected one night would change his life forever.

Gabi needed an escape from her world in LA. When her rescuer found her and her wrecked vehicle, she thought he was an angel. She quickly discovers she can rescue him back in a different way.

A holiday power outage still manages to shine light upon what matters most to Gabi and Jax—the people and the moments that define us.

One accident.

A one-night stand.

Two hearts.

And…some mistletoe.

What happens when the ball drops on New Year’s?

MY REVIEW

All I want for Christmas is 🎶… a Jax of my very own! What I absolutely love, love, love about Harlow Layne’s Heroes are they are all so very different from each other, but oh so loveable. As soon as I am convinced that I have fallen for the Ultimate Harlow’s Hero, she goes and writes another one and I find myself once again torn. The constant conundrum. Luckily I can love them all!! I love that her guys aren’t perfect, they come from all walks of life and most have been through some stuff, some not so pleasant too. But even with all that said her men don’t treat women like dumpsters, they are this perfect blend of Alpha in the bedroom but oh so swoony and sweet and all around great guys the rest of the time. 

Jax is all that and a bag of Christmas cookies! He’s had a horrible couple of years and it’s left him hurt and hiding in his cabin away from people. When he ventured out into a snowy ice storm, he happens upon a car accident and finds a beautiful unconscious Gabi. He doesn’t recognize who she is and when she wakes she only thinks he’s an angel.  I don’t want to give away a lot of what happens because it’s a novella and a really quick read. I will just say due to several circumstances, Gabi ends up having to go back to Jax’s cabin to stay and wait out the winter storm. 

Well let me tell you, Baby, it’s cold outside, but it’s sure got hot up in that cabin. There are reasons that Jax thinks he is unworthy of being with someone as beautiful and talented and successful as Gabi. Reasons he would think he would be a “ Beast to her Belle” if you will, but those things about himself are the things that I think make him even more beautiful to her. She is amazing and perfect for him. She doesn’t see his imperfections as a problem, nor is she bothered by them ,they are just part of his story. She’s not at all what people would expect her to be and I adore her! I love that they were both broken in different ways, but the other person was is just the glue needed to put the pieces of each other back together again. 

This book…total perfectness. It’s like the magic of Christmas morning. A night by a cozy fire. Chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven. All the things that leave you feeling warm and gooey and oh so good! That’s what this sweet little book does to you! I promise you want to grab it ASAP! Obviously lots more goodness happens between the pages of this amazing novella, but I wouldn’t dare deprive you of getting to experience it for yourself. So grab it today!
