They say everything happens for a reason- that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. For the longest time I didn’t think that was true. I had stumbled around in the dark for so many years that I didn’t think I would ever find my way out. But when I finally did, it came in the most unexpected way.

 

Miles Hollins had been my brother’s best friend for as long as I could remember. We didn’t like each other much growing up. Or rather, we couldn’t stand each other. But after ten years of being gone, a lot had changed.
He wasn’t the same boy I remembered. I wasn’t the same girl either. So much had happened.
I moved away and got married.
Miles joined the military.
We both returned home broken in our own way.
I struggled to find my place in my new life. Miles struggled just to get through the day. But together we slowly began to heal. I quieted his demons and he gave me a sense of belonging. For a while that was enough.
But this is real life, and in real life nothing stays perfect forever. In real life not every story ends with a happily ever after. Sometimes the scars we carry are just too deep.
I promised him I would fight.
He promised me I would lose.
I’ll do everything in my power to prove him wrong. Because it’s when you find the one thing you can’t live without, that you truly find yourself.
All That We Are is a standalone contemporary romance.

BOOK REVIEW –> Mr. Insatiable by Serenity Woods

Get your copy HERE!!!

 

ABOUT:

Has Mr. Insatiable finally met his match?

Kit Fawkes is Enya’s most favorite person in the whole world. She’s known him forever, and as her brother’s best mate and business partner, she would trust him with her life.

But ever since his ex told Enya that he was ‘insatiable’ in the bedroom, she’s harbored a secret curiosity for what that means. And on the night of her brother’s wedding, when she admits to Kit that she has a problem in the bedroom, she finally gets the chance to find out. Kit’s determination to prove to her that she’s not ‘broken’ leads to a lovemaking session that leaves them both wanting more. So Enya suggests an arrangement—a brief fling while they’re on a trip away in China.

What she doesn’t know is that Kit’s already half in love with her, and there’s no way he will turn down an opportunity to get her into bed again. “If I agree to this, it won’t be as your friend,” he tells her. “I’m not going to hold back. I’ll want you every which way, as often as I can manage it. I’ll want to show you everything I know, and explore a few more things together, if we have time. Do you think you can cope with that?”

Does he know that’s what she wants? So badly, it’s making her burn? But what will happen in the cold light of day, when Kit learns the whole truth about her past?

 

 

I really enjoyed Mr. Insatiable. Kit and Enya were amazing, from their lifelong friendship, the secret crushes and oh my god the hotness!

I always enjoy Serenity Woods’ books and this one was no different. What I really enjoyed was that Enya wasn’t just some happy-go-lucky girl bouncing around and flitting about life, she had substance to her. A horrible event in her past that would have a huge impact on her future, but Enya didn’t let it get to her. Much. I mean she has some issues related to it, but so many that it prevented her from living. She dealt with it the best way she could, and I appreciated that.

Kit was…everything. He was fun and funny, sweet and he knew exactly what Enya needed and did his best to give it to her. He was the quintessential book boyfriend and absolutely insatiable! Don’t get me wrong, he’s a guy, so of course he screws up at some point, but he deals with it head on and by head on I mean he drowned his sorrows in booze (fine by me) and then he got off his butt and went after his woman.

There was no real villain and if I’m honest, no real angst in Mr. Insatiable, and that just made the story even better as far as I was concerned. The only part that had me clenching my teeth was Kit’s dad. Yeah of course he’s looking out for his son, but kit is a GROWN MAN, and really it wasn’t his business. With a group as close as this group is, these things are bound to happen but I thought he was totally out of bounds and dead wrong.

Other than John, I truly loved the story and it reminded me why Serenity Woods is a one-click author.

REVIEW ~ Mr. Sinful (Heartfelt Book 1) by Serenity Woods

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Seven Sexy Sins. One Mr. Sinful.

Faith Hillman is in trouble. She’s writing an article on ways to spice up your love life for her popular blog, but she’s hit a major snag—she hasn’t experienced any of the Seven Sexy Sins on her list. Luckily, her brother’s best friend, Rusty Thorne, offers to help with her research.

Having had a crush on him since the age of twelve, Faith agrees, on the proviso that he signs a contract keeping their short-term relationship a secret. Her brother once decked him for kissing her on her eighteenth birthday, so Rusty’s happy to concur.

While they work their way through the wicked list, Rusty enjoys showing Faith all the sexual delights he can think of. But it’s only as the sins draw to a close that he understands that, where love is concerned, he’s the student and Faith’s the teacher.

He’s determined to keep to the terms of the contract, but when it comes to the crunch, will he be able to let her go?

Warning: Includes rebellious hero who enjoys inserting Tab A into Slots B, C, and even occasionally D. Also includes highly inappropriate use of a Mars Bar.

I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE the falling for your brother’s best friend trope. It’s hard to screw up and when done well, like Serenity Woods has done in Mr. Sinful, well it is a damn pleasure to read.

Faith is a well-known sex and relationships blogger without a lot of experience in either area, but she has nationwide recognition and a great new idea. Seven sexy sins. When her brother’s best mate, Rusty, offers to play her Mr. Sinful for just seven sexy encounters, she accepts without much thought to the consequences. It involves everything you think it would—scorching sex scenes, the feels, aww moments and even some naughty business with a chocolate bar—and then some.

I loved that Faith was the brave one in this relationship. Sure, she was naïve but it was due to a lack of experience not because she was sheltered and she was easy to root for. Fighting her feelings proves to be an impossible task, but watching her straighten her spine and decide to lay it all out there was amazing.

Rusty though, well he was magnificent. So damn tortured and scarred that he couldn’t see how amazing he was, and more importantly, all the good things he deserved. He’s the kind of guy you’re proud to call your book boyfriend. Stubborn to the point of stupidity, good and loving. Oh and did I mention, hot?

My only real complaint was Faith’s brother, Dan. It’s a personal peeve of mine, overprotective family, and he was kind of over the top. I understand his rationale but still, Faith was a grown woman with a job and a home so I think it’s unreasonable for him to think he can have that much say over her love life. He redeemed himself, but I still feel like I owe him a smack upside the head.
