Review & Giveaway: Before Jamaica Lane (On Dublin Street #3) by Samantha Young

Before Jamaica Lane (On Dublin Street, #3)

Publication Date: January 7th 2014 by NAL
Purchase Links: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo

About the book:

One simple lesson in seduction between two friends can turn into so much more…

Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex—usually, she can’t get up the nerve to approach guys she’s interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it’s time to push past her fears and go after what she wants.

Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he’s as loyal as they come. So when Olivia turns to him with her relationship woes, he offers to instruct her in the art of flirting and to help her become more sexually confident.

The friendly education in seduction soon grows into an intense and hot romance. But then Nate’s past and commitment issues rear their ugly heads, and Olivia is left broken-hearted. When Nate realizes he’s made the biggest mistake of his life, he will have to work harder than he ever has before to entice his best friend into falling back in love with him—or he may lose her forever…

My Thoughts:
Before Jamaica Lane is a best-friends-that-turn-into-something more type of romance, albeit, VERY reluctantly and with some heartache along the way.  This was such an addictive read I read it in one day, but I can’t say I’m surprised with this story coming from one of my favorite romance authors: Samantha Young. 

Olivia has moved to Scotland with her father for a fresh start and to be closer to her father’s sort of adopted daughter, Jo.  Olivia is ready for the move after caring for her mother through a bout with cancer and then ultimately losing her in the battle.  Because of putting her mother first, Olivia basically skipped over those years fumbling through romances, so even though she’s in her mid 20s, she has next to no experience with the opposite sex, and is extremely shy.  Therefore, when anyone seems to be interested, Olivia invariably mucks up her chances. This is with the exception of Nate.  He’s gorgeous, and pretty much a man-whore, but for some reason she immediately clicked with him upon arriving in Scotland, bonding over all things geek.  That doesn’t mean she’s immune to Nate’s charm and charisma. Olivia's pretty much a goner and harbors the crush of all crushes for him, but because romance doesn’t seem possible, she’s comfortable with him and they become best friends.  She tries to turn off the hurt and jealousy that comes whenever he snags a girl to take home, which is OFTEN!

Nate has no problem with the opposite sex. He’s the king of the one-night stand after having a very painful experience in love very early on. When Olivia asks Nate to help her overcome her crippling shyness with men, he agrees, but makes it clear he doesn’t want any confusion on his position:

“You trust me to do this with you, but I’ve got to trust that you won’t try to make this into anything more than a friend helping out another friend.”

And I want to smack Nate again after reading that quote!

Soon their “lessons” turn into so much more (big surprise) and before they know it Olivia and Nate are in over their heads. Olivia figures this out pretty early on, but can’t stop because her heart is too far gone.  Oh, Olivia! Nate on the other hand is very stubborn and I wanted to slap him upside the head more than a few times!  And this is where the angst comes in. Samantha Young has a talent for incorporating just enough drama and angst to puncture your heart, and keep you hooked without drawing it out to the point of frustrating you and turning you off the story.  Don’t let me turn you off of Nate, though, he had good reasons and he was a sweetheart helping Olivia see her value and desirability:

Nate said quietly, “Liv’s perfect. She deserves perfect. She won’t be settling for anything less.”

See, sweatheart.

Nate and Olivia were so very hot together! Ms. Young writes some of the hottest scenes and this story is no exception.  She builds things up, and up, and up, until the sexual tension makes you ready to combust!

As if this lovely romance wasn’t enough, we get updates on our favorite past couples: Joss and Braden, Jo and Camden, and Ellie and Adam.  Fans will recognize the events of this story overlap with the events in Castle Hill, the Joss and Braden novella, and we get a little of what happened through Olivia’s perspective.  I must mention that I love the whole “family” feeling you get with all the characters.  Olivia was accepted into this big group almost like a surrogate sister. All the girls were in her corner when she needed them the most.  I adored Olivia’s father Mick, as well.  Every girl needs a father like him.

Another bonus to this story is the inclusion of Ellie and Adam’s novella Until Fountain Bridge.  I LOVED their story.  So much packed into 111 pages!

Favorite Quote: (Spoilery so you need to highlight to see the text.)
“I never meant to fall in love with you. But I did. I felt it the first night I made love to you. I tried to walk away then because I’ve never felt so lost and yet so fucking found as I felt that night looking into your eyes as I moved inside you. I thought I should walk away…but I couldn’t stay away from you.”

Waves of Sunday #56

Welcome to our weekly edition of Waves of Sunday where each Sunday we spotlight a book that has been making waves in the book scene or has simply caught our attention causing a riptide on our TBR.

Today we are spotlighting:

Published December 16th 2013

These letters are often all that get me through week to week. Even if it’s just random stuff, nothing important, they’re important to me. Gramps is great, and I love working on the ranch. But…I’m lonely. I feel disconnected, like I’m no one, like I don’t belong anywhere. Like I’m just here until something else happens. I don’t even know what I want with my future. But your letters, they make me feel connected to something, to someone. I had a crush on you, when we first met. I thought you were beautiful. So beautiful. It was hard to think of anything else. Then camp ended and we never got together, and now all I have of you is these letters. S**t. I just told you I have a crush on you. HAD. Had a crush. Not sure what is anymore. A letter-crush? A literary love? That’s stupid. Sorry. I just have this rule with myself that I never throw away what I write and I always send it, so hopefully this doesn’t weird you out too much. I had a dream about you too. Same kind of thing. Us, in the darkness, together. Just us. And it was like you said, a memory turned into a dream, but a memory of something that’s never happened, but in the dream it felt so real, and it was more, I don’t even know, more RIGHT than anything I’ve ever felt, in life or in dreams. I wonder what it means that we both had the same dream about each other. Maybe nothing, maybe everything. You tell me.

~ ~ ~ ~


We’re pen pals. Maybe that’s all we’ll ever be. I don’t know. If we met IRL (in real life, in case you’re not familiar with the term) what would happen? And just FYI, the term you used, a literary love? It was beautiful. So beautiful. That term means something, between us now. We are literary loves. Lovers? I do love you, in some strange way. Knowing about you, in these letters, knowing your hurt and your joys, it means something so important to me, that I just can’t describe. I need your art, and your letters, and your literary love. If we never have anything else between us, I need this. I do. Maybe this letter will only complicate things, but like you I have a rule that I never erase or throw away what I’ve written and I always send it, no matter what I write in the letter.

Your literary love,


Arlene's Thoughts
I've heard great things about Jasinda Wilder, but have yet to pick up one of her books. This one might be it. I'm a sucker for epistolary fiction and if this book is written in the form of letters like the description leads me to believe, then I'm in. I like the idea of a literary love. How romantic is that? Well I hope my first exposure to Wilder's writing blows me away. I'm definitely looking forward to reading Forever & Always.

Rachel's Thoughts: 
This sounds like a fresh kind of story telling, for me anyhow, and I'm excited to see how a romance like this would play out.  It sounds like a sweet, longing type of love, the type that develops with a slow burn.  I do love a slow burn romance! I'm a Jacinda Wilder virgin as well, so I'd love to try her writing out!

Reviews & Giveaway: Waves of Fiction 2013 Favorites

Wow! Can you believe how quickly 2013 came and went?!? This year has been a fantastic reading adventure for us here at Waves of Fiction, so we wanted to take a moment to share some of our favorite reads for 2013. 

Several of us on The Waves Team decided to get together to share our favorite book of 2013. But that’s not all!! One lucky winner will get the chance to win one of the books we’ve spotlight here, so take a look and be sure to review the giveaway details below!
I have to say that in 2013 my biggest obsession was the Cut & Run Series. I love.love.love the dynamic duo of Ty Grady and Zane Garrett. They are by far my favorite fictional couple at the moment. I've given every installment FIVE EXPLOSIVE STARS and the series continues to get better and better as each story unfolds. 

Cut & Run is the first installment to this fast and furious series of mystery, intrigue and a special brand of FBI romance. To meet these two characters is to fall in love at first pass. They are an explosive force as a pair, but most importantly their stand-alone presence is just as powerful. They command each page and there is no downtime when you take their journey. I say again… absolutely fast and furious!

Truly suspenseful, addicting and AMAZING!! 

One of the best NA books I've read - absolutely loved this one. I loved every single minute of this book. The story unfolded so beautifully and sucked me in immediately that I didn’t want to put it down. I felt so many different emotions while reading it – especially at the point in the book where it threw me for a loop. Not only was it a wonderful romance with enough steam thrown in – there were some serious laugh-out-loud moments. The banter between Ashton and Nathan was perfect and so realistic. And the tender and serious moments were a total surprise that I was not expecting going into reading this book – but made it all the more wonderful! I wanted to weep at times because these two were so PERFECT together and I was cheering them on to get their HEA. This is a new favorite author to me and I will be anxiously awaiting her next book!

The Chocolate Touch  (Amour et Chocolat #4)
The Amour et Chocolat series has completely bewitched and seduced me! Paris, chocolate, and decadent desserts coupled with some of the most sensual romances I have ever read, how could I not fall in love?!!

I highly recommend all the books in the series, but my absolute FAVORITE was The ChocolateTouch. It’s my top romance read for 2013!  Oh, my stars, the romance was so utterly HOT and sensual!  Dominique and Jaime’s story was a bit darker and emotional than the other stories, but that made me love it even more.  I dare you not to swoon with knees buckling in weakness over Dominique Richard: dark, broody, big and gorgeous, with a soft marshmallow heart! Each of the stories are companions, so you don’t have to read the others to enjoy any one, but I’d recommend reading The Chocolate Thief before this one, because it gives a little history on the main characters, and because it's amazing as well!

Stars & Stripes by Abigail Roux
Stars & Stripes (Cut & Run, #6)
I really tried to think of another book to post as my favorite of the year, but I just can't not chose the Cut & Sun series!  Arlene picked it above and I have to agree with her.  This series is definitely my favorite of the year and I know without a doubt it will be my favorite next year as well with the upcoming release of Ball & Chain.
This series has it all and so much more that I never knew I was missing!  Ty and Zane are prefect together and their stories never disappoint.  Stars & Stripes is my favorite in the series so far because in this one we get to see their relationship take that extra step.  With Stetson's and tigers galore this story flew off the pages and I have been picking it up continually throughout the holiday season to reread my favorite parts.  Which by the way is basically the whole book!  Love love love this series!!
We hope you enjoyed our Waves of Fiction 2013 Favorites. And now for the giveaway!! Be sure to enter the Rafflecopter below for a chance to win one of the eBooks we've spotlighted above. This giveaway is open to all entrants who can receive an eBook from US Amazon or US Barnes & Noble. Just fill out the Rafflecopter and share with us through a comment below what your favorite 2013 book was this year. Good luck and Happy New Year!

Review: Double Full (A Nice Guys Novel #1) by Kindle Alexander

Double Full (A Nice Guys Novel #1) by Kindle Alexander 
Published October 8th 2013 by The Kindle Alexander Collection
Up and coming football hero, Colton Michaels, makes a Hail Mary pass one night in the college locker room that results in the hottest, sexiest five days of his young life. However, interference after the play has him hiding his past and burying his future in the bottom of a bottle. While Colt seems to have it all, looks can be deceiving, especially when you’re trapped so far in a closet that you can’t see your way out. When ten years of living his expected fast-lane lifestyle lands him engaged to his manipulative Russian supermodel girlfriend, he decides it’s time to call a new play.

Jace Montgomery single-handily built the largest all-star cheerleading gym in the world, driven by a need to forget a life-altering encounter with a handsome quarterback a decade ago. His reputation as an excellent coach, hard-nosed business man, and savvy entrepreneur earned him respect in the sometimes catty world of competitive cheerleading. When Jace learns of his ex-lover’s plans to marry, his heart executes a barrel roll and his carefully-placed resolve tumbles down without a mat to absorb the shock. Can his island escape help him to finally let go of the past and move his life forward?

My Thoughts
A definite TOUCHDOWN in my playbook. Double Full by Kindle Alexander is sexy, fun and romantic. The perfect trifecta combination for fans of contemporary M/M romance!
Colt Michaels is the university’s star quarterback with a bright future in the NFL. He’s harbored a long time crush on Jace Montgomery for most of his college years, but has kept it a secret until one chance encounter in the locker room. When sparks fly and the chemistry explodes between these two, Colt and Jace can't deny the attraction they feel for one another. So when they make an attempt to begin a relationship, Colt’s father stops at nothing to destroy what has just begun.

After ten years of working hard to build a successful all star cheer gym, Jace has succeeded in his career goals, but there's something missing in his life. He's never been able to recover from Colt's betrayal when he abruptly abandoned him. When Colt decides after a decade of meaningless relationships that he can't live without Jace, he has to fight for a second chance.

First off, there was no denying the chemistry between these two characters. The brief time they spent together at the onset of their relationship felt sincere, so it was truly heartbreaking to see the lengths to which Colt's father would go to keep him and Jace apart. As much as his abandonment hurt Jace, I still admired how much Colt was willing to sacrifice to keep Jace safe from his maniacal father. When it was revealed how he never stopped following Jace's career, I was rooting Colt on when he fought for his second chance.

The time Jace and Colt spent apart seemed to have sadly destroyed each of these characters to a certain degree, so I was hoping they'd get a happy ending through all of the struggle they had to overcome to be together.

With off-the-charts steamy moments, heartfelt dialog and steady yet romantic build-up, Double Full was a solid hit. This was my first exposure to Kindle Alexander, and I can say with definite certainty that I will dive into more of her novels because I enjoyed her storytelling and overall style. Well done!

Review: Love Your Entity by Cat Devon

Love Your Entity (Entity, #3)
Love Your Entity (Entity #3) by Cat Devons
Published on December 31st, 2013 by St. Martin's Paperbacks
Purchase: Amazon
About the book
Sierra Brennan can inherit her great-uncle’s historic Chicago townhouse under one condition: She must live there for thirty consecutive days. What could possibly go wrong? As a writer and a ghost whisperer, Sierra has a vast imagination and a brave spirit. But not even she is prepared for the gorgeous—and naked—vampire who greets her at the door.


Ronan McCoy has spent the past century waiting to come home…to this house. The presence of the beautiful, brazen Sierra is one complication he doesn’t expect. The other is Hal, a dangerous ghost and original member of Al Capone’s gang who’s dead-set on revenge. What is a formerly indentured vampire supposed to do to get a moment’s peace? All he knows for sure is that he must protect Sierra from Hal. But once he has her in his arms, can he ever let her go? Life—and love—is becoming stranger than fiction for Sierra…and more delicious than she and Ronan could have ever imagined... in Love Your Entity. 

My Thoughts:
Okay I'm going to be honest Love Your Entity was fluff, but it was really really good fluff.  I haven't read a book like this in awhile and it really brought me back to when I used to read these types of books exclusively.  I guess I will always have a soft spot for vampires and this book made me wish I had one of my own again.

Sierra is an author which I loved of course.  She writes ghost hunter stories staring a kickass heroine named Nikki. When she inherits a distant relatives house she jumps on the opportunity to put down roots.  One big condition though is that she has to live in this house for 30 days straight and well two other previous relatives have tried to live in it and failed.  This isn't a concern of Sierra's though because unlike her other relatives she can see ghosts so whatever is living in that house will just have to move out, Sierra is moving in and staying put.

All that goes out the window when she walks in a sees a naked man standing in her living room.  And of course he is handsome and drop dead sexy, but Sierra isn't even going to let this mans claim on her house stop her.  Little does she know that this gorgeous man is actually a vampire and well nothing will be easy from here on out.

When I read these types of books I know the story is going to be corny and this was didn't disappoint.  There is even a bond type thing that can only be broken by the two who are bonded having sex...yep by having sex ha!  See fun fluff!  There are a lot of these little situations through out that made the story fun.  Even the ghosts that were supposed to be scary really weren't that scary and in the end were pretty easy to vanquish.  I liked that though.  It was minimal drama and action that left room for the steamy scenes and hot vampire molting stares of desire.  Sometimes we as readers need these kind of stories to cleanse our pallet.

What really sold this for me were the characters.  I really liked Sierra and Ronan.  They are a fun couple that had a lot of obstacles to work out, but  in the end they did what they had to do for each other and things work out for them.  I am not saying how they work out though you will have to read the book to figure that one out.

The cast of characters rounds out nicely with a few witches, more vampires, and even a demon hunter.  I mean really what more do you need? Each character brought something to the table and I might even read the other stories in this series to see how each couple ended up together.

Does this story have problems, yes it does but you know what I am not going to dwell on those problems.  For once I think I am going to just enjoy the story for what it was and let all those little problems go. This was fun and I am sticking with that!

Author: E.L. Montes
Book Title: Perfectly Damaged
Cover Designer: Mae I Design and Photography
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Schizoaffective disorder: a mental illness in which a person experiences a combination of mood disorder and schizophrenia symptoms.
I know about this illness—very well—because I suffer from it. It’s been four years since my diagnosis, and ever since, I’ve been living in a dark hole. Voices constantly invading my thoughts. Hallucinations. All of which force me to question if what I’m experiencing is even reality.

But here I am, still hanging on, still breathing and living through it.

That is, until he stumbled into my life. Logan Reed. I don’t want any part of him. I’ve pushed him away, but he isn’t easily deterred. I’ve told him I’m different, but he doesn’t care. He’s trying to slowly break me down. I’m trying just as hard not to let him. He doesn’t know how truly damaged I am; what will happen when he does?

I know the truth—he’ll never be able to look at me the same way again. Just like everybody else.

Review: Sweet Home by Tillie Cole

Sweet Home (Sweet Home #1) by Tillie Cole (Goodreads Author)
Published October 13th 2013
At age twenty, Molly Shakespeare knows a lot.
She knows Descartes and Kant.
She knows academia and Oxford.
She knows that the people who love you leave you.
She knows how to be alone.

But when Molly leaves England's grey skies behind to start a new life at the University of Alabama, she finds that she has a lot to learn — she didn't know a summer could be so hot, she didn't know students could be so intimidating, and she certainly didn't know just how much the folks of Alabama love their football.
When a chance encounter with notorious star quarterback, Romeo Prince, leaves her unable to think of anything but his chocolate-brown eyes, dirty-blond hair and perfect physique, Molly soon realises that her quiet, solitary life is about to dramatically change forever...

My Thoughts
”Hey, Mol.”
“Hey, you.”
“You gonna give up that sweet kiss?”
“If that’s what you want.”
“It definitely is.”

D’awwww!!!! How cute is that?!?

I can’t say that Sweet Home is a flawlessly written novel, but there was something rudimentary and sentimental about it that just caught my attention and heart. I enjoyed this star-crossed lover’s novel about a girl that leaves her English roots to come to the University of Alabama and finish her Masters in philosophy, and ends up falling in love the southern bad boy star quarterback. Perfect mix I tell ya!

Romeo Prince is Alabama’s prized QB with a bright football future in his corner. His game is about control and dominance, and his past is seedy and painful making him both volatile and destructive at times. When he meets gentle Miss Molly Juliet Shakespeare, she seems to be the perfect balance his hard edges with her humble and quiet manner. However, with his controlling family and her tortured history, the odds don’t seem to be in their favor.

I have to say that I enjoyed Rome’s Bama slang mixed with Molly’s English accent. This pair couldn’t be more different, but their namesake makes them fated, right? Well when pushed up against the obstacles they face, you start to wonder who had a more tragic story. That leads to some overly dramatic moments mixed in with slightly amateur writing. However, I kept looking forward to jumping back into Rome and Mol’s story. About 60 – 70% into the novel, the storyline added a dramatic turn that could have been the demise of this adventure for me, but somehow Tillie Cole made it work and it brought the novel full circle.

Overall, I really enjoyed Rome and Mol’s story and I’m eager to read Sweet Rome when it comes out next month. If it’s told in Romeo’s perspective, I’ll probably have to look past the f-bombs and domineering attitude to find that sensitive, gentle character that hides beneath the football jersey. Can’t wait!

Waves of Sunday #55

Welcome to our weekly edition of Waves of Sunday where each Sunday we spotlight a book that has been making waves in the book scene or has simply caught our attention causing a riptide on our TBR.

Today we are spotlighting:
Sex Love Repeat by Alessandra Torre
Published December 1st 2013 by Alessandra Torre
I love two men. I screw two men. I am in a relationship with them both, and they are both aware there is another. That is all they need to know, that is all I let them know. They don’t need to know a name; they don’t need to know anything but that they are not alone in my heart.

They have accepted the situation. Stewart, because his life is too busy for the sort of obligations that are required in a relationship. Paul, because he loves me too much to tell me no. And because my sexual appetite is such that one man has trouble keeping up.

So we exist, two parallel relationships, each running their own course, with no need for intersection or conflict. It works for us, for them, and for me. I don’t expect it to be a long-term situation. I know there is an expiration date on the easy perfection of our lives.

I should have paid more attention, should have looked around and noticed the woman who watched it all. She sat in the background and waited, tried to figure me out. Saw my two relationships, the love between us, and the moment that it all fell apart.

She hates me.
I don’t even know she exists.
She loves them. I love them.
And they love me.

EVERYTHING else hangs in the balance.

Arlene's Thoughts
Okay, I've read my fair share of love triangles, but this one is sure to top them all. This triangle feels like sharp edges, emotional twists and one hell of a downward slope... all the perfect elements to keep me glued to the pages and entertained. I can't wait to meet the woman who watches it all unfold and I hope she causes mayhem and havoc galore! This sounds completely different and quite exciting. Sign me up!!

Rachel's Thoughts: 
Oh, wow, this sounds like all kinds of drama! Maybe some suspense depending on this woman that's watching all this play out. How come I feel a little shiver, and more than a little dread thinking about her? I'm not usually one for love triangles or multiples; I don't like to share, but still, I'm totally curious!  This isn't something that I'd usually pick up, but I wouldn't mind a little shake up in my TBR! I foresee a lot of ranty text messages if I pick this one up.  Beware ladies. Lol!
