#CJRguestreview Snatch by Marie James

Snatch (Cerberus MC #5) by Marie James

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance

Snatch Teaser 1.jpg


I’ve been Jaxon Donovan since the day I was born, obviously. My road name, Snatch, came years later due to my ability to literally snatch up any woman I set my sights on. I’ve always been a connoisseur of the opposite sex. Tall, short, thin, thick and juicy, my tastes knew no limitations.

I didn’t think there was a limitation to my sexuality, and I found out just how true that actually was the night my best friend took it upon himself to take me in his mouth. Sure, there’d been close calls before, the slip of a hand or misplaced lips. With our propensity to share women, it’s bound to happen. That fateful night, I was met with pure intention and an experience I never want to forget.

How do you explain to your friends, your brother’s in arms, that your extremely active sexuality has led you to your best friend’s door step? How do you admit, after twenty-six years of heterosexuality, that you’re into something else?

I’ll soon find out that what happens in the dark will always come to light.

This week I’ve been trying to declutter my book life! I pruned my goodreads list and I moved some of my tbr round into collections. I felt so refreshed after!

I have a question: Does anyone get sidetracked with their reading lists? I picked out 9 books to read this summer but I get squirrelly moments where another book catches my attention and I must read it immediately!!!

This week from my summer reading list I read:

Half blood by Jennifer L Armentrout

The first part of the book was slow going and I nearly gave up! Glad I didn’t though as it got A LOT better. 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

El Diablo by M Robinson

This the THE book of all mafia books. I’m cursing myself that I didn’t read this earlier. This authors work is so good that I went and bought more of her books! 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧
And this months Kindle First book was:

Secondborn by Amy A Bartol

The fantasy world this author built was top notch and now I’m dying for the 2nd book. 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧
This week I decided to read more off my summer read list:

The Queen and the Cure by Amy Harmon

I read The Bird and Sword and fell in love with the writing so was always going to read this!

My Best Friends Ex by Meghan Quinn

Am curious about this. The unwritten rule. You do not date your best friend’s ex!

I only have 3 more books to read from my summer list (1 isn’t out till August) so I’m going to make a further list! Stay tuned!

Hope you have had a great reading week!

#CJRguestreview Steal by Rachel Van Dyken

To say that Mel loves RVD is an understatement, she would read her shopping list!

Mel read and reviewed Steal, the follow-up to Keep and gave it 5 stars

So with no further ado, here is the info! Ps: could that cover be any hotter?!


It’s easy to lose yourself in someone you love.

Easier to lose yourself in someone you hate…

I didn’t think it could get any worse than having to babysit a bunch of spoiled musicians on set — keeping them out of trouble is a cakewalk compared to seeing my ex every day.

Seaside, Oregon isn’t big enough for the both of us.

She hates me.

I loathe her.

The plan was simple — stay the hell away and make sure she gets to set on time.

What I didn’t expect was to be faced with our past in front of an audience — and be forced to face it again.

It’s torture.

The way she looks at me.

The way I try to look through her.

Words left unsaid.

The lingering aftermath still as powerful as ever.

I feed the chasm between us, for fear that she’ll make me feel again — and steal the last shred of heart I have left.

We have everything but each other.

It’s not enough.

Not when you’ve lost love.

And replaced it with the only thing left — hate.

Book Review & Discussion: Half Blood by Jennifer L Armentrout

So firstly here is how I read and review a book: 
A) I read it (ummm yes!)
B) I write my review (I take notes along the way!)
C) I post review to GR and Amazon
D) I go back and look at other people’s reviews.

I was astounded at the reviews for this book! I have never read the Vampire Academy books…….but I sure am now!

My review is below but it got me wondering…..
Have you read both series?
What do you think?
Did you think it was a rip off of Vampire Academy or do you think the market is so saturated that this will happen?

My review:

So I admit that about 15% in a was ready to throw in the towel….I was getting a bit bored.

But then….well then it turned around and I was like a woman possesed! It was about midnight and I was at 62% and I had to put the book down (I curse working for a living!) but I didnt want to…I had to literally prize the kindle out of my own hands!

I thought this was a great read and will defo read the 2nd book, but I am hoping it’s not too strung out.

Ps – I am totally team Aiden. Seth gives me the creeps!

#CJRguestreview  Perfect Strangers by Madison Street

Perfect Strangers by Madison Street 

Six years ago, I met a mystery.

Smooth, sexy, and confident, his arms wrapped around me on that cold winter night. A deep, rugged voice embedded itself in my soul. Dark eyes stared deep into mine, begging me to stay.

Six years ago, I ran and didn’t look back.

The memory gives me chills to this day. And as I close my eyes, I imagine him whispering sweet nothings to me. That perfect night together, just one night, is our secret; an unspoken memory two strangers share.

Now, my mystery becomes a reality. One that faces me, head on, and stares with those same dark eyes, speaking with that same deep voice. A mystery I cannot escape, one the shadows won’t let me hide from anymore.

Once he finds out my secret, it will shatter his heart.

He should have stayed away.

#CJRcoverlove The Broken Puppet by Amo Jones

COVER LOVE.pngI love a cover, like so much love a cover….but I never judge a book by it!

For today’s cover love we have….

The Broken Puppet by Amo Jones (if you haven’t read The Silver Swan, GO BUY IY NOW!)

Releasing on July 18th, here is the blurb and buy links:

“I thought I knew who I was, but I was wrong.”

The Silver Swan
– 1. A girl who is tarnished. Tainted. One who does not fit into the confinement of legend.
The Silver Swan
-2. Madison Montgomery.

I was lied to.
I was cheated.
Resigned to pick up the scraps of empty memories and disarrayed thoughts, I left. After finally cutting the strings of manipulation, I resorted to do what I’ve done since I was a child, something my father drilled into my brain since I could handle my first rifle.
I’m a mere shadow of the girl they all knew.
Lies and deceit change you. They alter your entire outlook on life.
I’m Madison Montgomery, and I want to play a game.
Here’s what happens when I win.

Riddle me this, Mads.
What goes bump in the night,
but is something you can’t see with sight?
You may run, and you may hide.
If by happily ever after, you mean Bonnie & Clyde.

The Brits Weekly Book Biz….

I normally post this on a Sunday but I took advantage of the fabulous weather we had and cut the grass and played in the garden with my son….but who can blame me?!

Last weeks reads were great, but only 2!

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses Book 2)

I read it at last! Even though I hated Feyre for most of this book, I really enjoyed it! My hate fuelled me on (and of course Rhysand!) 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧


I have never read anything like it, so unique! A caveman story like you have never read! 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

To read this week (and to do)

I realised my review posts are lacking. I looked at a few and they just seem ‘bleurgh’ so this week I plan to do some research to see if I can liven them up a bit.

If anyone has any pointers for me I would be most grateful!

So my reading week looks like this:

I got this as a Kindle First as I am a Prime member <—- nothing excites me more than that monthly email! Release date is 1 August.

My bookie friend told me I HAD to read this – and who am I to deny!!!


That’s my week! What did you read?

#CJRTheBrit My 10 summer reads….

I know I am a bit late with this as June 21st was officially the start of summer (I run by the astronomical calendar for seasons!) but here I am anyway!

July and August are always busy months for me, school breaks up for 6 weeks in the middle of July, the family are going away for 2 weeks and my job gets very busy this summer so overtime is aplenty!

Also season 7 of Game of Thrones starts in July so 1 night a week I will be glued to the TV!

Anyhow, I digress!  I’ve picked 10 books that I want to read this summer. Some from my TBR and some not released yet for that balance (the balance in my brain that is!)

 summe reads

The Broken Puppet by Amo Jones.  The Silver Swan screwed with my head so I NEED answers!

Transcendence by Shay Savage.  My book friend said it was a TRAVESTY that I had not read this. So I am reading!

Hideaway by Penelope Douglas. Michael Crist/Corrupt…of course I want to read this!

El Diablo by M Robinson.  My best book friend said I must read this…so I am!

Half Blood by Jennifer L Armentrout. I saw this on a list of the best god and goddess books to read so I am going to devour!

The Queen and the Cure by Amy Harmon.  Loved the Bird and the Sword so this was an auto 1 click for me!

My Best Friend’s Ex by Meghan Quinn.  The forbidden…I am so there!

The Goal by Elle Kennedy.  A surprise pregnancy…again, I am so there!

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh.  Heard so much about this book and it sounds right by my alley!


And the eagle eyed would have noticed there are only 9!  I’ve left a spot open for a surprise read – anything that takes my fancy I am going to read!

What is on your list for summer?  Add your links to comments so I can have a nose!
