Our Book Review – Wish He Was You (The Blogger Diaries #2) by K.D. Robichaux

25993023

** Provided by the author for an honest review **
** Review by Kylie from Bloggers From Down Under **

With book one finishing on such a heartbreaking cliffhanger, we catch up with Kayla as she tries to get on with her life without Jason. She’s moved back to her home town and soon makes new friends.

When Kayla first meets Aiden, she’s not ready for a relationship but soon things are quickly moving in that direction. When, on a weekend away, Aiden asks Kayla to be his girlfriend, even she is surprised that she agrees.

When news of Aiden’s deployment comes, he does the only thing that really makes any sense to him, and proposes. And even though it’s only been a few months, Kayla once again finds herself agreeing.

It’s not long after the wedding, (while Aiden’s on deployment) that Kayla and Jason seriously begin communicating with one another, and Kayla truly realises that Jason is her soul mate and the only man for her.

But fate has other ideas, and while you may be expecting a happily ever after, we don’t get it in this book!!!!

Another superbly written piece that honestly feels like shooting the breeze with one of my oldest girlfriends. Not all parts of this story are pretty, and Kayla will even tell you herself that it was the hardest time she had to deal with.

Another instalment that I couldn’t put down…………eagerly awaiting the third and final book so our girl can finally get her happily ever after.

A definite 5 stars.

ReefAndFord LIVE teaser

Blurb

Everything he didn’t know he wanted, and now couldn’t live without…

Paramedic and mountain rescuer Stratford ‘Ford’ Wallace fell hard and fast for pro-snowboarder, Reef Reid. For a ‘straight’ guy, falling in love with a dude was not what he expected, but his explosive attraction to Reef is undeniable. Neither of them have uttered those three little words yet, but Ford knows Reef feels the same. At least, he thinks he does.

Reef is smashing his pre-season training at Fernie, the idyllic Canadian snow resort, getting wicked air and landing what could be season-winning jumps. What’s even better is that his man is with him. Going home to Ford every night is what Reef always dreamed of— his very own happily ever after.

Knowing they’re ready, they take the next step in their relationship— meeting the parents. But when tragedy strikes on the slopes, can Ford push through the painful memories and be what Reef needs?

Ford will sacrifice himself, literally putting both his heart and his life on the line, to protect his man. But will it all be for nothing when Reef is presented with an offer that’s too good to refuse?

About White Noise ~ A Goodreads Review (in part) by Zetti

“I am running out of ways to explain how much I’m in love with it. I could read these two forever and not be bored of them. I don’t think anyone will be disappointed with this book at all.”

Meet Reef and Ford in Whiteout

Unexpected #1

Blurb

The moment you get all you ever wanted.

Pro-snowboarder, Reef Reid, has it all, except the one thing he desperately wants: the girl, the white picket fence and the happily ever after. At the peak of his career, he turns his back on the upcoming season and flies to a tropical island paradise to defrost.

At least that’s where he was supposed to go.

A ticketing mishap has him ending up in Queenstown, New Zealand, famous for its idyllic ski resorts.

Stratford ‘Ford’ Wallace understands attraction to the opposite sex. He’s a true playboy at heart after all; a genuine love ‘em and leave ‘em type. But all that is flipped on its head when the enigmatic Reef Reid literally drops out of the sky.

When a whiteout trapped them together on a mountaintop neither expected the explosive attraction that would spark between them. They’re unable to resist each other, but will they give into temptation? Or will the avalanche that tears through the mountain end them?

Author Bio

By day Ann Grech lives in the corporate world and can be found sitting behind a desk typing away at reports and papers or lecturing to a room full of students. With her quirky glasses and shiny leather briefcase, she has the librarian look nailed. All laced up tight in her pencil skirts and killer heels, her students can only fantasise about what she gets up to in her spare time. If only they could see those tattoos! Oh, and those notepads of story ideas tucked away in odd places that would be sure to have them fanning themselves!

By night she’s a wife and mum and a purveyor of saucy stories that are filled with lust, raunchy scenes and ultimately love. Ann’s an avid reader of anything sexy and firmly believes in the motto ‘leave mummy alone, she’s reading or writing.’ Because of that, she is pretty hopeless when it comes to getting dinner on the table on time or cleaning the house.

School was a waste of time for me. Or rather, I wasted time; my own and every teacher’s who tried to get me to work. It took twenty years to appreciate what they were telling me. Life has rules. They aren’t written down but they exist nevertheless. I got that. Eventually. But by then I was thirty five.
Along the way I missed an important clue. At ten I won a national primary schools short story competition – and didn’t write anything else for forty years.
SMART BOY WANTED
APPLY WITHIN
As a teenager my big obsession was music. Early on I realised if I was successful I would probably be rich and famous and pull lots of girls.
So how did that turn out?
Well, you haven’t heard of me, have you? And this morning I caught myself worrying about the electricity bill. So the short answer is: one out of three ain’t bad.
Running around the country in a Transit van with your mates is fun. It’s your very own gang. You against the world. Until you fall out and the dream lies bleeding on the dressing-room floor.
When that happened I went to London
[everybody from Scotland goes to London, it’s like first footing at New Year, or ten pints of lager and a vindaloo on a Friday night; a sacred tradition]
and became a session singer. I also started gigging with different bands on the circuit.
Back in Scotland – most of us come back with wild tales of great success, none of them true – I wondered what I should do with myself and didn’t have to wait long for the answer. Her name was Christine. We got married, I went to Strathclyde Uni and got a bunch of letters after my name, and toughing it out at Shotts Miner’s Welfare, or dodging flying beer cans at the Café Club in Baillieston, was in the past. The long hair was short now, I wore a suit and pretended to like people I didn’t like because we were ‘colleagues’.
After many adventures I started my own marketing and design business and did alright. Christine and I were very happy, we travelled all over the place; India, Brazil, Botswana, Nepal, Borneo, Japan. One day I suggested we move. To the Greek islands. So we did. We bought land and built a beautiful villa overlooking the Mediterranean. Then the pan global financial crash happened, years of fiscal carelessness finally caught up with Greece; the exchange rate dived and the cost of living in Paradise went through the roof.
I had to do something. Then I remembered the short story competition. I had been good at writing, hadn’t I?
I wrote another short story called The King Is Dead…the first thing I’d written since primary school. When I typed the last word [Christine taught me to type] I held the pages in my hand then started to read. An hour and a half, rooted to the chair unable to believe what was in front of my eyes. For four decades I had shunned a god given gift. And as I read I started to understand why. It was awful. Not just bad. Bloody terrible.
But I kept going.
And now, eight years and seven books later, three literary agents plus two I turned down [they were reading a different book] I am a writer. My books are on Amazon. People buy them and come back for more.
One seasoned London agent has predicted I am destined to be ‘a major new force in British crime fiction.’
Yeah!
So is the moral: follow my example, find something you’re good at and stick with it. Hardly. I didn’t, did I? Do it your own way; it’s your life.

They are family to him.
Relationships….Never.
He’s the playboy, show them a good time, then see ya.
It’s just who he is.
Until he sees her.
Cody hasn’t seen her for a year.
He can’t believe his eyes.
She’s stunning, beautiful, a woman.
His last memory of her…..His bandmates kid sister.
But not anymore.
She’s every bit woman, and Cody wants her.

Meet Kitty.
She’s young, vibrant, beautiful.
She loves her life.
Still at college, she’s been looking forward to the break to see not only her brother, but the guys from Oblivion.
It’s been a year.
Secretly she’s had a crush on Cody, the drummer.
She has for years.
But once she sees him, she knows she needs to have him, to claim him, to be his.

But will Cody and Kitty get their chance?
What will Kittys brother do when he finds out?
Will it be the end of Oblivion?
Or will this be the start of something new, beautiful?
Could this be the relationship they both desperately want?
Or could they ultimately ruin each other?

Guys…..We are so not giving anything else up because you are just going to have to read it to find out.

We loved this instalment of the Oblivion on Tour series. We were taken on a sinfully delicious, heartbreaking journey. We laughed at the craziness of both Cody, Kitty and the band. Our hearts broke at the loss they felt. We held our breath hoping and praying for them to be together.
We fell in love with Cody and his humor, strength and vulnerability.
We fell in love with Kitty and her determination, her sass and personality.
Put these two together, you have one amazingly explosive read.

We recommend this novel to be placed on everyone’s TBR list…..You won’t be disappointed.

For us a 5 star read.

Excerpt

Dragging myself out of the gymnasium and down the hall, I try and get to the side double-doors. But with no one here to help me, it’s difficult. I need to sit for a moment out on the steps leading to the back field and gather myself.

My legs become heavier as I get to the doors. The cyclone happening inside my head is growing thicker while my vision is so unclear I can barely make out any objects.

Stumbling down the first step, I barely recognize where I am.

“What’s happening?” I think I say.

There’s a cacophony of dense sounds; a combination of white noise, mumbling, and a beat which doesn’t make sense.

My eyes are now so heavy I can barely open them and my legs are completely weighted as I attempt to make my way down the stairs. I think I’m going to pass out.

 

Author Bio

 

There’s something about the written word that is pure magic.

Possibly it’s the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they’re capable to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as ‘unique’. My stories aren’t for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be ‘normal’.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who’s never been ‘bound by custom’ but is ‘unique by choice’.

I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.

Four : A Menage Erotic Romance Author : S. C. Daiko

 

Title : Four : A Menage Erotic Romance
Author : S. C. Daiko 
Genre : Erotic Romance 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

It’s been a year since Max and I overcame our commitment fears and chased away our demons, a year in a blissful poly relationship with Steve. And now we’re all set to become four.

It should be the best time of my life, of our lives; trying for a baby with the two hot men who keep me warm at night. 

But when Steve’s friend James arrives from London, an over-the-top-theatrical scene player with his own agenda, and a whole lotta history just waiting to reignite, Steve suddenly doesn’t seem like the guy we fell in love with. He’s changing, morphing into a different man before our eyes.

I’m beginning to think the four Steve has in mind doesn’t necessarily include our baby.



***

Lauren Price is happy living with the two men she loves and life couldn’t be any sweeter. What started as just a little fun a year ago – a girl, two guys, and a whole lot of sex – has become a deep three-way love she hopes will last forever. 

They want to be a four – Max, Lauren, Steve and their unborn baby. That’s what they said, that’s what they planned. 

But life in love doesn’t follow the rules, and soon four doesn’t look quite like the three-plus-one Lauren intended it to be.



***

Although a sequel to “Three”, S. C. Daiko’s first Erotic Menage Romance, “Four” is a standalone story and, like its predecessor, contains vivid erotica and scenes involving MF, MFM, MMF, MM and some BDSM. All consensual. Most definitely 18+ only.


 

 

 

 

 

 

S. C. Daiko is an erotic romance author. When she isn’t bringing her fantasies alive on the page, she enjoys the sweet life of the Veneto in northern Italy – where she lives with her husband and two cats.

 

She writes historical fiction under the name Siobhan Daiko.
