#CJRcoverlove You HAVE to check out this cover….Wrong Side of Heaven by Yolanda Olson

Now I know I have posted a few times this week (go me!) but I couldn’t let this pass without sharing.

I have never heard of this author before and I haven’t read anything by her but I am so in love with cover that I am going to check her out. LOOK AT THAT COVER!

It caught my eye from another book bloggers post and I HAD to share it!


Title: Wrong Side of Heaven

Author: Yolanda Olson

Designer: Desiree DeOrto

Release date: October 17th 2017

This fire inside of me has burned for so long.

An eternal flame that’s now threatening to engulf me in its blaze and steer me toward the path fate has decided for me.

I’ve fought it for as long as I can, but with each waking moment I can feel it flicker and dancing inside of me warning of things to come.

No one can save me from this because it’s what’s meant to be.

I never asked for this.

I didn’t wish to become inhabited with this …

I’m losing my will and the slightest misstep will bring about the one thing I fear the most.

Woe unto me for Babylon will soon fall.

And more news; IT’S ONLY 99C!!

Have you heard about the Misadventures series, the brain child of Meredith Wild? 

Meredith founded Waterhouse Press in 2014 and is making a big splash in the world of romance.  Back to the Misadventures series; here is how its described by Meredith: 

“Misadventures is a romantic series of spicy standalone novels, each written or co-written by some of the best names in romance. The stories are scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy. They’re the perfect bedside read, a ‘quick blush’ for the reader who loves a page-turning romance.”

You can read all about it (wow I sound like a newspaper seller!) here.

Title: Misadventures of a City Girl

Authors: Meredith Wild & Chelle Bliss

Genre: Contemporary Romance





Fresh off a divorce from a Hollywood hotshot, Madison Atwood needs an escape. With the paparazzi fresh on her heels and her love life splashed on every tabloid, she runs away to a swanky retreat in Northern California. Avalon Springs is the mountainside haven she needs to find herself again.

Luke Dawson lives off the grid, preferring solitude to society. When he finds a beautiful woman soaking in the hot springs on his property, he can’t stop himself from watching her. She captures his attention, but she’s just a city girl—a beautiful distraction disturbing the peace he’s settled here to find.

When Madison discovers Luke’s secluded cabin, he can’t turn her away again. They make no promises. Madison needs to feel wanted again, and Luke misses the touch of a woman. But when mother nature has other plans, they’re forced to spend more than a night of passion together. Can Luke say goodbye to the only woman who’s made him feel anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?

The Brits Weekly Book Biz! See what I read this week!


Here we are again, the end of another week!

It’s been a bit crazy for me this week. I have been having neck issues and my quack thinks I have another (or 2) herniated discs in my neck which isn’t great news.  He also signed me off work for 2 weeks so hoping to get some quality reading time in…and maybe binge watch some Netflix shows!

I have read 2 books this week, one was a beta read and the other was from my TBR pile, slowly knocking them off!


Broken Shelves (Unquiet Mind #3) by Anne Malcom

This was my beta read so I wont post my review until I have read the final copy but I can tell you it was funny, fabulous and fantastic!


Road to Nowhere: Book 1 by M Robinson

See my review here.




Well now, I find myself in a situation, a situation that feels all to familiar to me!

  • I have a tbr of 60 books.
  • I have 5 arcs on my kindle.
  • I am expecting a further 3 arcs that are to read for September.


I am a stickler to read books on time so arcs first, tbr will need to wait!


What have you read this week?

#CJRguestreview Pitch Please by Lani Lynn Vale (sports romance)


Title: Pitch Please (There’s No Crying in Baseball #1)

Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Sports Romance







Mel loves sports romance books, so when this came up she was all over it like a rash! You can read here review here.  Here are some details on the book and Lani (author):

Baseball is life, the rest is just details.

Everyone who’s played the game has heard those words a time or two. But Hancock has heard them his entire life from his parents. His family has lived and breathed baseball even before he started little league.

Hancock “Parts” Peters has a name that inspires grins across many faces, but the moment those faces get their first look at him, those grins slide away.

Hancock is gruff, filterless, and doesn’t give a crap who he offends.  He is the only man in baseball who doesn’t care if he gets an endorsement or not. He’s there to play the game. He’s there to win. He’s there because baseball is his life.

People think he’s a jerk.

And maybe he is. But if that’s how he has to come off to get people to leave him the hell alone so he can play in peace, so be it. The less people he has to worry about offending, the better.


Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back.

Sway Coffman didn’t mean to rock the boat.  She was just there to do her job.

Sure, she was a woman in a man’s world. Yes, she beat out several of those men to get the job as head athletic trainer for the professional baseball team, The Texas Lumberjacks.  And yeah, she now got hate mail from those men.

But she’s good at her job, and she earned the position.

What she is not good at, however, is talking to men.

Men seem to see her curvy hips, large breasts and thick thighs and automatically think she is incompetent.  Because surely a fat girl couldn’t get the job treating some of the most fit and athletic men in the world, right?


This fat girl got the job, and she is proud of it.

What else did she get?

The attention of the sexiest bearded man she’d ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.

It was enough to bring to her down to her knees…in front of that man, the hot and grumpy baseball player, Hancock Peters.

Cover Love: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

There are 3 things that really draw me in to buying a book, the first being the author.  If it’s an author I know and love then I am 99% going to one-click.  The 2nd thing is a blurb. I love an enticing, promising blurb!  Then there is the cover……..

Now this book does not have the most exciting of covers.  Its really non-descript. Well in my eyes it is. But that is what drew me to it…..


Title: The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic

Author: Leigh Bardugo

Release date: 26 September 2017 (pre order available)

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid’s voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy’s bidding but only for a terrible price.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.


Anyone manage to get an arc? I would love to hear your thoughts.

CJR Review: Eye Candy Anthology (spooky fun!)




Tijan, J. Daniels, Helena Hunting, Bella Jewel, and Tara Sivec

A frightfully good time! Dive into these Halloween novellas from bestselling authors Tijan, J. Daniels, Helena Hunting, Bella Jewel and Tara Sivec. Featuring stories set in the worlds of their popular series.

Tijan’s Fallen Crest crew are back for a weekend of mischief that takes a sinister turn; all four couples from J. Daniels’ Alabama Summer series gear up for Halloween in their own sexy ways, with a special surprise at the end; Helena Hunting’s characters from Shacking Up plan a Halloween gala that features a few ghouls and witches; Bella Jewel brings the chills and thrills in her suspenseful take on Halloween night; and Tara Sivec gathers the Holiday family together one last time as they try to make this ghostly holiday one to remember—or one they’d rather forget…

Cozy up with a mug of hot cider on a dark night and fall under the spell of this Halloween anthology!



I love an anthology, themed novellas are the best. Especially when they come from your favourite series.

I had only read 3 out of these 5 authors so I read the ones I knew first and then the remainder…..just my quirky way!

Tijan’s was gripping and totally scary, spooky swooning from Bella and the usual fabulous hilarity from Helena (was great to revisit the Church of Bane!!!)

Don’t be fearful, this is a spooky treat. A must read anthology.

The Brits Weekly Book Biz: 28 Aug – 3 Sept


September is here!

I’m sure I’ve said this before but Autumn is my favourite time of year, it’s always so pretty where I live with the colourful falling leaves….and it means it’s closer to Christmas <—– yes I’m one of those Christmas lovers!

It was the last week of school holidays so have been busy getting organised so I only read 2 books:

On to what I’ll be reading this week!

Prepare yourself……I’ve added my inner musings! I swear there is a method to my madness!

I want to get to a place where I can again look forward to the books that are releasing in the coming month. I miss that! It’s all due to my tbr being bigger than normal (60 ebooks).

So for September I picked books from my tbr under 300 pages, so (hopefully) this week I will get to read a couple of those! And I thought if I pick a theme each month till the end of the year then I might make a dent! And I also have to fit in arcs……end of musings!

Hope the week has been good to you.

I’m getting in a bit of a panic about my ever growing tbr, so for a quick win, I am only going to read books off my tbr that are under 300 pages as I know I can power through them. Yes I am odd! I did look about for a challenge for that but didn’t see one. If anyone knows of one then please let me know.

I have a choice of 9:


I’m not sure I will get through all of them as I also have 8 arcs coming for September and October but I will give it a good go!

And I just wanted to add this in…..

Thank you!!!

How was your August?
