Life comes down to a series of choices.ย 

To hold onโ€ฆย 

To let go…to forgetโ€ฆto forgiveโ€ฆย 

Which road will you take?ย 

For eighteen years, Jude Farraday has put her children’s needs above her own, and it showsโ€”her twins, Mia and Zach, are bright and happy teenagers. When Lexi Baill moves into their small, close-knit community, no one is more welcoming than Jude. Lexi, a former foster child with a dark past, quickly becomes Mia’s best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable.

Jude does everything to keep her kids out of harm’s way. But senior year of high school tests them all. It’s a dangerous, explosive season of drinking, driving, parties, and kids who want to let loose. And then on a hot summer’s night, one bad decision is made. In the blink of an eye, the Farraday family will be torn apart and Lexi will lose everything. In the years that follow, each must face the consequences of that single night and find a way to forgetโ€ฆor the courage to forgive.

Review

How far would you go to protect one of your children?

This is the question in this heartbreaking book.

Jude has it all, a perfect family, a perfect house, a perfect life.
Her kids are popular at school (well one of them, the other pretends she is) and everything is rosy.

Jude is the perfect mother to twins Zach and Mia and they love her for it, everything she does is for them.

Mia is unhappy though, she doesn’t fit in at school and has no friends, that is until one day, a girl called Lexi sits next to her and begins to talk to her, they then become inseparable best friends.
This concerns Jude as Lexi comes from the wrong side of the tracks, but gives Lexi the benefit of the doubt and soon she becomes an addition to their perfect family.

After a stupid mistake is made one night the family’s life is never the same again and Lexi is pushed out of the families embrace.

I loved this story and was moved to tears on many occasions, it has friendship, love, loss and fear in bucket loads.

Wonderfully narrated By Kathleen McInerney, this book was a pleasure to listen to.

A definite credit recommendation from me!

Enjoy,

Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this.

Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

Double Review

Holy steaming panties Batman!ย 

This book was HOT and I loved it.

Narrated by the queen of sexy voices Andi Arndt, this was a perfect read/listen for me.

I loved all of the characters especially David and Ev
This didn’t have the usual boring “oh he looked at little ol me” Mary Sue in it, Ev can look after herself……..well sort of!

Now I’m not sure about you other girls but this kind of thing happens to me all the time…………. Yeah it does to you too, look at you, I can see you grinning from here

But obviously we can’t talk about it……..Lawyers eh!!

So reading this was a little bit like reading my Saturday night a few weeks ago, I mean I have to calm down, I’m getting old and I’m on my 4th annulment this year! !!

Let me see the similarities

Ev pops off to Vegas with her friend ( check )and has a few to many tequilas ( check ), after that she can’t remember anything( check )…….wakes up in the morning with a banging head ( check ) with a massive diamond ring on her finger ( check ) and a gorgeous rockstar next to her in bed ( check )

I mean it’s like Kylie Scott has been googling me or something ……….perhaps I have a stalker!!

Anyway if you want to read about me and my life, well I’m afraid you can’t, I have signed a legal contract, but if you want to read this brilliant book with a great storyline, great characters and a nice bit of hot sex thrown in then be my guest.

You could just change the names I suppose it’s pretty much what happened to me………..

Oh god there goes my alarm…

.WHAT NO WAIT
……..dreaming again …….sigh…….

Enjoy,

After reading Vโ€™s stellar review of this book, I took a look back at my own …. funny how we took a slightly different approach to this, but had the same basic premise, admittedly I like her review better! Anyways I thought this was a great start to a fabulous series, but I think the second book was my absolute favorite in the series!

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง The book was narrated bye Andy Arnt and I think that V would agree we both have a bit of a girl crush on her! She truly is the most fabulous near raider when it comes to romance, the girl can sure work that male voice!๐Ÿ˜

So here is my review from July 2016 ……

Never in my life, have I woke up from a drunken night next to a super hot guy, who is filthy rich, and has already developed feelings for me….. why has this not happened to me yet…. I keep waiting… and it still isn’t happening???๐Ÿ˜•

Maybe I need to quickly Book me a trip to Vegas….

This book just proves my point, if you like fantasy…. you will truly enjoy romance!๐Ÿ’• Even though this book was highly unlikely, to actually happen I still loved it!
Eve was a fabulous character… filled with spunk, sass, and clearly some unpredictability…. I truly enjoyed the girl…. David was a good character as well, but I believe I liked her a bit more..:.. They were very cute together….: and undeniably a perfect match…..

I was happy to see how this book ends…. and I’m absolutely going to read the next book in the series…. I think I might find Mal A little more compelling……

Highly recommend this book and all the other books in the series to all fans of love, romance, girls with some sass, and hot musicians๐Ÿ˜

Enjoy,
