5 ✰'s for Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey

Scoring Wilder by R.S. Grey

What started out as a joke-- seduce Coach Wilder--soon became a goal she had to score.

With Olympic tryouts on the horizon, the last thing nineteen-year-old Kinsley Bryant needs to add to her plate is Liam Wilder. He's a professional soccer player, America's favorite bad-boy, and has all the qualities of a skilled panty-dropper.

* A face that makes girls weep - check.
* Abs that can shred Parmesan cheese (the expensive kind) - check.
* Enough confidence to shift the earth's gravitational pull - double check.

Not to mention Liam is strictly off limits. Forbidden. Her coaches have made that perfectly clear. (i.e. "Score with Coach Wilder anywhere other than the field and you'll be cut from the team faster than you can count his tattoos.") But that just makes him all the more enticing...Besides, Kinsley's already counted the visible ones, and she is not one to leave a project unfinished.

Kinsley tries to play the game her way as they navigate through forbidden territory, but Liam is determined to teach her a whole new definition for the term "team bonding."

I loved this book! Liam Wilder is your typical hot, sexy as sin professional athlete, but he is also so much more. It took him finding rising star soccer prodigy Kinsley Bryant to realize where he wanted his life to head. 

Kinsley Bryant is such a great female character. She is hilarious, caring and a very friendly person. I love that she doesn't come from a dark and twisted past. She has loving parents who love and support her and it shows in her personality. There were so many times that I thought she would lose her shit over what Tara or the media was doing to her, but she handled it all so well. She is your typical 19 year old looking to have a good time all the while trying to reach her dreams of playing soccer at the Olympic level. Which apparently she is pretty bad ass at soccer and so is Coach Wilder. 

The first time they meet is pretty great. I love that she is so loose lipped after having her birthday shots and says somethings to him she doesn't mean to. Only it is what works for his attraction to her. They had to be the cutest couple that I have read lately. They have such a great relationship right from the start. There isn't of the unnecessary drama that usually surrounds couples who are in the limelight. The only drama is psycho Tara and her obsession with being famous. Well, I guess that is not entirely true...the fact that at the beginning Liam is Kinsley's coach and they have such an attraction that neither can ignore could qualify as a tiny bit of drama. But Liam handles it really well and made me love him all the more for it. It was nice to read a book that all the drama was mostly centered on things outside of the relationship and that they couple stayed strong through it all. 

This story is well written and so are the characters. They are easily relatable and I connected with them instantly. I loved Becca, Emily and Penn. I love how this book opens up because you are instantly in love with Kinsley. The ending (epilogue) is pretty awesome too! Overall this is a great read and I would suggest reading it if you are looking for a sweet, sexy romance. 

✦Release Day Blitz✦ Audrey Exposed by Roxy Queen

Audrey Exposed
Author: Roxy Queen
Genre: Erotic Romance
For Audrey her body is her worst enemy. For Graham it’s his biggest temptation.

With his assistance she must embark on a journey to conquer her fears by allowing herself to discover feelings of pleasure, the power of her body and the thrill of sex.

With each revelation they sink deeper into one another, merging into the other’s lives in and outside their protective bubble.

There’s only one goal. One objective and together they’ll break new ground, layer by layer, until Audrey’s exposed.


I wipe my hands on my dress, staring at the numbers 806 on the gold metal plate. This is it, Audrey. You’ll walk in that door a girl and eventually come out a woman.
“I’m such a loser,” I mumble to myself, and twist the doorknob.
A man hops up from the love seat when I enter. He has dark hair and a defined, closely shaved jaw. He’s handsome, definitely not smelly or gross, and strangely familiar.
“Have we met before?” I blurt, trying to place him.
“Um… I don’t think so,” he says, flashing a heart-stopping smile. His eyes meet mine and they’re bluer than blue. Henry Cavill.
“Oh, I saw you going up the elevator last week.”
“Right. Of course, I remember that,” he says with an even brighter smile. Adorable dimples appear on his cheeks. He holds out his hand. “You were loitering in the lobby. I’m Graham.”
 I remember why I’m here and my face burns, surely, turning bright red. I take his hand anyway and say, “Audrey.”
“Right,” I repeat feeling like an idiot.
“Would you like to sit down?” he asks.
“I guess so, thanks.” I take the same spot as the other day but this time I sit in the middle, hoping he doesn’t try to sit next to me. What am I doing here?
Graham sits across from me and says, “I know this is all new for you, but please don’t be uncomfortable. Dr. Markson has told me all about your situation and I just want to help. I think together we have a really good chance of defeating your anxiety.”
His speech is so sincere and he’s giving me the most empathetic smile. I want to die of humiliation. Covering my face with my hands, I groan. “Oh God, this is so embarrassing.”
“Because you know I’m a defective misfit; and you’re here to help me with something I never share with anyone. Like ever, yet you’re just talking about it like its normal.”
“It’s your normal,” he says.
“Yeah. Whatever.” I cross my arms over my chest and nervously look around the room, anywhere but at him. I notice a small black journal on the coffee table. “What’s that?”
“Those are our instructions and guidelines for the day.” He picks the book up, and says, “Want me to read them?”
My stomach burns from anxiety. I want run from the room and never look back. “I guess we may as well see what this is all about.”

Box Set Release of the Beautiful Mess Series by T.K. Leigh


  "The Alexander and Olivia saga will definitely make you feel like you’re caught in an inescapable rip-tide that you won’t want to be rescued from. They take you on a powerful, emotional journey filled with heartache, courage, hope and love that will leave your heart pounding and gasping for air." - Fierce and Fabulous Book Diva



  The complete best-selling Beautiful Mess series in one e-book box set. This includes A Beautiful Mess, A Tragic Wreck, and Gorgeous Chaos, as well as a previously unpublished deleted scene from A Beautiful Mess and a glimpse into an unannounced super-secret project, due to be released in 2016. 

  A Beautiful Mess: 

Olivia Adler is a woman with a troubled past. After losing her parents at the young age of six and being raised by an uncle who she lost years later, she refuses to get attached to anyone, including friends. For the past decade, she has been able to remain unattached to any man, too worried about losing someone to get too close. Until Alexander Burnham walks into her life one night and changes everything. But he has issues of his own. And he’s keeping a secret that could turn her world upside-down. Will Olivia let Alexander in enough for him to get close and protect her from a force threatening her very existence, or will she push him away, scared of letting Alexander in, in order to protect her heart? 

  A Tragic Wreck

Haunted by her past, Olivia Adler flees Boston for a beach in Florida, leaving everyone behind, trying to shut the world out. Remaining a relative recluse in her self-imposed prison, she tries to turn everything off, wanting to feel nothing. But a new acquaintance won’t let that happen. After being away from Alexander for a month, his voice constantly ringing in her head, reminding her that her inability to confront her demons will not only destroy her, but also him, can she really be expected to want to feel again when it brings nothing but pain? Back in Boston, everywhere he turns, Alexander Burnham is reminded of Olivia… His Olivia… He tries to dull the ache left in his heart the only way he knows how… in the bed of a beautiful woman. But Alexander isn’t about to lose his Olivia. After a clue comes to light regarding Olivia’s whereabouts, can he convince her to return to Boston with him? When a force that has laid dormant for months resurfaces, can Alexander still protect her from the unknown danger? And when Alexander comes face to face with a shadow of both his and Olivia’s past, will he be able to tell her the secret that is threatening to tear them apart? 

Gorgeous Chaos:

 Finally able to face her fears of abandonment, Olivia Adler begins to prepare for the next phase of her life. But Alexander Burnham is still holding on to all the secrets about Olivia’s past, trying to protect her. As days go by, Olivia is slowly starting to remember her past and Alexander realizes it’s only a matter of time until she puts all the pieces together and figures out who he is… And who she is... But if she remembers, her life could be in even more danger than it already is, and Alexander cannot have that happen. When shadows of Olivia’s past threaten not only her life, but also those around her, will Alexander finally put Olivia’s needs ahead of his? Will she be able to put all the pieces of her past together in order to save her own life and those that she’s close to? Can she figure out who she can trust and who is threatening her very existence?

The Facebook has shut me down....

Hey guys! It seems that The Facebook has shut down my personal page for some ridiculous reasons. I have no idea what I am going to do about it yet. I am either going to fight what they sited me for or I am going to have to convert to a page which is absolutely fucking ridiculous. This is the message I logged into after being contacted by my sister letting me know that I disappeared...

I am not really sure why this has happened other than maybe I am promoting way to much to have that as a personal page...which is absolute shit. I guess I am now in the Guantanamo Bay of Facebook Jail. Be patient with me and I will see how I proceed next. I guess if you need to get ahold of me in the mean time email or google is the best option. My email is and my google name is Shanoff Reads. Let us see how this plays out...

The seester Crazy Daisy just sent me this screenshot of what it says in PM with me

What in the FUCK?!? I have never been notified about being reported! I am super pissed!!!

Rhett by J.S. Cooper

I’m Rhett.

I’m cocky because I can be. I’ve got it all: the looks, the money, the endurance. I’m the guy that every girl wants to be with, yet none of them have ever been able to tie me down.

I don’t do love. I don’t do relationships. And I sure as hell will never do marriage.

I’m all about the fast life and everything that entails. There’s a different woman in my bed every week. My friends are jealous of me. My enemies envy me. Everyone wants my life. And everything in my life is absolutely perfect.

Until the day she told me she was moving away. She’s my best friend. She was my first kiss in grade school. We share everything with each other. We never dated because I don’t love her. I don’t care that she’s moving. I don’t care that she’s moving for a guy. I don’t care because I don’t love her. I don’t do love.

I’m Rhett and I don’t let anything get me down. Then one night changed everything and everything I thought I knew was called into question.

All of a sudden, being Rhett didn’t mean so much anymore.

*Blog Tour Stop* ~The Rebels by Brittany Jo James~


Happiness is only reserved for the upper class in the United States of America. 

As a military wife who spends most of her time working for minimum wage, Temper Jensen can attest to that. Finding a spare moment to spend with her husband, Voss, is a luxury she can hardly afford. 

Everything changes when the citizens realize that the president of the country is nothing more than a terrorist bent on total domination. Freedom no longer exists for the citizens of the United States of America and all who dare defy their new rulers are considered rebels of the nation.

Temper knows what she must do, even if it means being separated from Voss in order to save his life. Risking everything, she runs home to her moonshine-brewing anarchist daddy’s home in southwest Arkansas to collect a congregation of rebels to fight back. No one can be trusted, especially Temper’s devious ex-boyfriend who won’t take ‘no’ for an answer.

Can Temper reunite with her husband, keep her wayward family out of trouble, and restore the USA to the nation under God that it was intended to be — or will freedom as we know it be lost forever?

***I received and ARC from the Author for an honest review***

This book is so much different than any other book that I have read this year. It addresses something that is always in the back of my mind, that could possibly happen, and it scares the crap out of me. I only hope that if the things in this book did happen to our country that I would be a BAD-ASS chick like Temper.

In my opinion this book really isn't a romance, but it does show the devotion of a wife for her husband, her country and her GOD. Right off the bat you know that Temper is quite what she thinks she is. She sees herself as a timid, quite woman and boy is she wrong. Everyone sees her as so much more, she just needed the right push to really come out of her shell. She is strong in her convictions and is determined to make a stand for her country and God. We see a transformation in Temper immediately when the SPIT hits the fan.

She becomes a bad-ass chick who is ready to fight for her beliefs and to bring her country and it citizens back from the rulers. During her escape she is separated from her husband and makes her way home and it is there that she decides that they need to take a stand. They decide that they will travel the country and try to group together to over throw the rulers or at the very least get her husband back. You see her growing stronger as she makes her journey to find her husband and to gather more rebels.

I really loved Temper. She is such a smart and convicted person. I enjoyed watching her lead the group of rebels and the way she talked to people she came across them. She didn't know if she could trust them or not, but she still stood strong even if it was with false confidence.

I am not going to give anything away, but it is a MUST read. There is plenty of action and it definitely sucks you in. I could not wait to find out what happens in the end.
