REVIEW: Can't Touch This by Pepper Winters

I don't want to touch it.

I really, really don't.

He's egotistical, crass, and my patient's owner--which makes him totally off limits.

Yep, that's right. He owns the wiener I'm currently working on.

A wiener dog--get your dirty mind out of the gutter.

I've also worked on his Spoodle, his Cocker-shitzu, and a Cheagle--don't ask. (And no, it's not a sexual position).

It doesn't help that he also represents most of my joint-owned veterinary practice's small clientele. We'd only just opened the doors a few months ago, and in he strode with a yelping Taco Terrier. One haughty look at our sparkling new facilities, he'd demanded royal treatment, even though I was currently finger deep up a squalling tom cat.

Ever since then, he expects me to serve him.

Any time. All the time.

Him and his revolving zoo of dogs.

One of these days, I'm going to swat him for being such a pompous ass but I can't deny the way he handles his charges makes me want to see past the 'do as I say and don't ask questions' barking exterior.

But then last week...he caught me staring at his um, cough, package.

His bossy commands switched to a cocky smirk.

He gave me permission to do something I promised myself I would never ever do.

I can touch it.
If I want...

Pepper Winters wears many roles. Some of them include writer, reader, sometimes wife. She loves dark, taboo stories that twist with your head. The more tortured the hero, the better, and she constantly thinks up ways to break and fix her characters. Oh, and sex... her books have sex.
She loves to travel and has an amazing, fabulous hubby who puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends.

Oh how I missed ready Young Adult novels.

Monica Murphy knows how to write them & so glad I got back into reading them.

This book is filled with a fast paced love of teenage angst and tons of drama.  The story takes us into the characters world and boy was I loving and hating many of them.  We know what it was like to be a teenager.  You live, you learn, you hurt, your lie, you cheat and you get revenge.

Yep, this book had it all and I totally felt like I was back to my High School days filled with drama and deceit.  As soon as I started reading, I could not put the book down.  I had to know what was going to happen next.

Get this book because you will want to know what happens when Olivia leaves her best friends Emily & Dustin for the summer to return to changes she wasn't expecting. So many well developed characters intertwined into this angst filled story.

Yes, there is a cliffy and I need the next book like now!!  I seriously was not expecting that ending so of course I have tons of theories of where Murphy will take this story next.

Go 1 click!  It's a must read!

BOOK REVEAL: Cole by Tijan

     Social Butterfly PR is thrilled to present the Book Reveal for Cole by Tijan


Cole by Tijan Release Date: February 13th, 2017 



I shouldn’t have remembered him. He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn't know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all. But I could feel him. The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated. The second time was different. He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed. That was just the beginning. He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name… Cole Mauricio.

REVIEW & RELEASE DAY: Roman Crazy by Alice Clayton & Nina Bocci

It's finally here!

Be ready to want to grab your passport and go on a Roman adventure!


🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒 🍒🍒 🍒🍒 

I have my passport ready & I am ready to find my own Marcello in Rome!

What a journey this book was!  I instantly fell into the world these authors created.

The sights, the smells, the scenery which was beautifully written to make you feel like you were on the journey of this second chance romance.

Loved how even thousands miles away, the friendship between Avery & Daisy was one after my own heart.. No matter what they act as though they live right next to each other and their banter back and forth had me cracking up.

When Avery gets to Rome to escape and rethink about putting herself first in life,  she meets up with the very sexy Marcello again after a 9 year hiatus.

Well, it's true what they say, sometimes no matter how long the distance, when you have the right chemistry with someone, it never goes away.  It can only get stronger.

And boy Avery & Marcello chemistry made my cherries pop like a hot frittata!  I felt like my cherries were getting a spanking from the Roman gladiator that is called Marcello!

Go get this book to read about finding oneself and learning to fall in love all over again with the one that you thought might have gotten away.

This book is filled with plenty of swoon worthy romance and laughter that will keep you smiling and reminding yourself that YOU are number one when it comes to your own happiness.  

This is on My Top 2016 Reads!
