Positive. With two little lines on a pregnancy test, everything in Lizzy Rollins' ordinary life is about to change forever. And all because of one big mistake in Vegas with Ben Nicholson, the irresistibly sexy bass player for Stage Dive. So what if Ben's the only man she's ever met who can make her feel completely safe, cherished, and out of control with desire at the same time? Lizzy knows the gorgeous rock star isn't looking for anything more permanent than a good time, no matter how much she wishes differently.

Ben knows Lizzy is off limits. Completely and utterly. She's his best friend's little sister now, and no matter how hot the chemistry is between them, no matter how sweet and sexy she is, he's not going to go there. But when Ben is forced to keep the one girl he's always had a weakness for out of trouble in Sin City, he quickly learns that what happens in Vegas, doesn't always stay there. Now he and Lizzie are connected in the deepest way possible...but will it lead to a connection of the heart?

Excerpt
“C’mon. How have you been, really? What’s been going on with you?” he pushed. I frowned at him and he frowned right back. “Liz, please.”
I groaned in defeat. “All right, I suck.”
“Why do you suck?”
“So very many reasons.” I pushed my hair back from my face—no more hiding. “Pregnancy sucks. It’s natural, my ass. I finally stop throwing up, but I’m tired all the time. Giving up coffee was horrendous. None of my clothes fit right because of these stupid breasts, and they ache constantly. I have to pee like every thirty seconds, and then to top it off, I cry every time the Healthy Hound ad comes on. It’s ridiculous”
Little wrinkles appeared either side of his nose. “You cry at a dog food ad?”
“Yes. The puppies jump all over each other to get to their mother and it’s just so beautiful, with their cute little tails wagging and everything.”
He just stared at me.
“I know its psycho, Ben. Believe me, I’m well aware of this.”
“Hey, it’s fine.” He covered a smile with his hand. Too late, the bastard.
“You try dealing with all these hormones going apeshit. Crap. Apeshoot.”
“Apeshoot?”
“I’m trying not to swear,” I explained. “You want the first word our child comes out with to be something bad?”
“No. Gotcha.” The man was incredibly bad at hiding a grin. “No swearing.”

Review by: Erin 

I LOVE this series! I love the family dynamic that envelops these characters. The bond these men share is sometimes tested, but unbreakable. They are string, possessive, and passionate. They are also full of fun. They care deeply for the women they love. The women have a bond all their own. They also take no shit. Together with their men, they are a strong, tight-knit family who looks after each other till the end.
 
All Hail Stage Dive!!!!
 
Ben is trying to be a stand up guy and not pursue Lizzy because Mal and Anne have asked him not to. But LIzzy has plans of her own and she is not going to let her sister and brother in law stand in her way. 
 
I think that Ben and Lizzy are perfect for each other. Their chemistry is off the charts. Anyone in the same room with them would feel the tension in the air. 
 
Mal in the role as big brother/protector is very hot! Of course, he manages to keep his signature humor. 
 
I believe this will go down as my favorite Stage Dive novel!
5 Stars

Review by: Cristina 

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right? That could be held true if evidence from that night could have been kept a secret. Those two lines on a pregnancy test will change the course of two people and possibly the band. 

Look, I can’t get over you, Liz. That’s the problem. He rested his chin on my shoulder. “You’re the only girl I want.”

The sexy and adorned bass player for Stage Dive, Ben Nicolson prefers a simple life of living, enjoys being a bachelor, and never expected anything more but doing things for himself. When he first got caught sight of Lizzy he was surprised by her response and was later told that she was off limits not because of just her age but that she was Anne’s sister and the the drummer for the band, Malcom's new sister-in-law.

My eyelids started blinking like crazy for some reason. “I warned you not to flirt with me again unless you meant it.”

When Lizzy Rollin first caught sight of Ben during band rehearsal she could not look away. Mesmerized by all things about him and getting quick insights of who he is from friends she secretly make the first move on the bass player. However, she never thought pursuing Ben would develop into something more.

“That girl--” “Loves your brother. And he loves her. I’ve never seen him like this with anyone, and she good for him. He’s spending less time alone, talking more, interacting….

I am a newbie in the Stage Dive series and with this author works. The 4 stars read was the first book I have read in this rock band line and it was one that had grab a hold of me from the start. Ben and Lizzy story was filled with wanting more but obstacles along the way kept holding them back. There is one who is afraid of the changes and the other who prefers nothing less when it comes to the heart. They needed to both be on the same page and it will not happen unless they can finally come to terms with their feelings. The cost…the risk of losing everything in a heartbeat! 

The 4th book in the series will be enjoyed by new and existing fans of this series. Pick up your copy today and get to know more of this swoony musician. :D

21 Days by Bethany Lopez - REVIEW TOUR


21 Days (Time for Love, #2) 

by Bethany Lopez
Genre: Contemporary Romance



Synopsis:
Sasha and TJ are no strangers to enjoying sex with no strings attached, so when they decide to act on their mutual attraction, there should be no reason why they can’t apply that same philosophy to each other. 


Money has never been an issue for Sasha, which made proving herself as a real estate dynamo a personal challenge she was determined to conquer. Raised in a gilded world masking neglect and disappointment, she learned not to depend on anyone, especially when it comes to love and relationships. Men are great for companionship, but she isn’t looking for anything serious. 


Used to going without, TJ has worked hard to be able to support himself. When he loses his job and his home in one fell swoop, he faces relying on others for the first time in his adult life. Then Sasha steps in, offering him a place to stay until he’s back on his feet. He grudgingly agrees, but vows to be out of her guest room within 21 days. 


They'll discover that a lot can change in 21 days, especially when they decide to give the idea of "friends with benefits" a try. As each day passes, Sasha and TJ become closer than they’ve ever been. Will they be able to go back to being just friends when their days together are up, or will they allow their personal hang-ups to get in the way of what they really cherish most? 

Review By: Cristina

No longer working and having to find a place to live is the dilemma that TJ is facing. Determined to make it on his own with what he has in his pocket can only last him so long. Thankfully after her insistence Sasha, a successful realtor with enough money to live in luxury, offers him to stay at her place until he can get back on his feet. To avoid overstaying his welcome he sets himself to be out of her place in 21 days. 

Already such an important part of my life, it was beginning to feel like adding sex to the mix had just intensified our relationship, and I begin to wonder whether or not I’d be willing to give up this new aspect of our relationship when our twenty-one days were over.

As TJ & Sasha gets comfortable with their living arrangement their attraction leads them to an exclusive friends with benefits arrangement while living under the same roof. The problem…is that a disguise on how they actually feel for each other? And when the truth comes out, will it be enough?

This 3.5 stars book in the series deals with relationship from a best friends standpoint. It had its moments that made me think of the situation between two people who have know each other since they were young and whether giving into their feelings is possible for more.

Jake Undone & Jake Understood by Penelope Ward - FMR REVIEWS



About JAKE UNDONE (Jake, #1):

Nina Kennedy was alive…but not living…until she met him.

Planes, trains, heights…you name it, Nina was afraid of it and led a sheltered life ruled by irrational fears and phobias. When she moves to Brooklyn for nursing school, that life is turned upside down, as she develops an intense but unwanted attraction to her gorgeous roommate, who’s pierced, tattooed and just happens to be the smartest person she’s ever met.

Behind Jake Green’s rough exterior and devilish smile, lies a heart of gold. He makes it his mission to change Nina’s outlook on life. When he agrees to tutor her, they forge a bet and the stakes are high as Jake forces Nina to face her demons. He just wasn’t expecting to fall hard for her in the process.

What Nina doesn’t realize, is that Jake has been living his own private hell. Once he drops a bombshell, will their love survive it?

Told in two parts from both Nina and Jake’s points of view, Jake Undone is a standalone story and a companion to the novel, Gemini.



About JAKE UNDERSTOOD (Jake, #2):

From the New York Times bestselling author of Jake Undone, comes a full-length standalone companion novel and sequel.

A different side to the story: Jake’s side.

“We’re getting a new roommate,” they said. 

I thought nothing of it...until she walked in the door. Her hand trembled in mine as she looked at me with fearful eyes. My entire world spun on its axis. 

Nina...

It was a mismatch made in heaven: innocent girl from the boonies moves in with tattooed, pierced, badboy engineer. 

I came up with a bet, a plan to tutor her in math and coach her through her phobias. What I wasn’t betting on was becoming addicted to her.

But I was living a double life on weekends, and once she found out about it, she’d be gone.

I had to protect myself and that meant one thing: I couldn’t fall in love. 

In Jake Understood, pivotal scenes from Jake Undone are retold from Jake’s point of view combined with all-new material from both the past and present time where Jake Undone left off. It can stand alone but if both books are read, should follow Jake Undone. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.


JAKE UNDONE

Review By: Cristina 

Fears and phobias, secrets and more can make two people who are total opposites of each other more compatible and a necessity in their life.

Because, after meeting her, the only thing I could think about was that I just wanted to make her smile, take some darkness out of those beautiful blue eyes.

Jake Green is a hottie with his fit body and tattoos that gets the opposite sex all flushed over him. Afraid to get to close to anyone he resorts to quick flings with women. This playboy lifestyle is due to the fact that he has another life that no one other than his family knows about. He works in the city during the week and goes home on weekends. His roommates wonder but never really pushed and/or got an actual answer. The truth about his weekend whereabouts did not really need to be known until a beautiful blonde moves into the apartment and begins stirring things inside him that he is trying to avoid.  

He brought me back to life. He brought me back to life, and he could very well be the death of me all over again. It would be worth the risk. But he’s holding all the cards.

Nina Kennedy has moved to Brooklyn to go to school for nursing. She was fortunate to be able to live with a long time friend and his two roommates. For some time now she has lived with many phobias that when she planned her moved she made sure it was where she was comfortable wherever she went. Little did she know that a bet with her roommate Jake would change her life in unexpecting ways. 

I thought my life was planned until the moment I touched your hand.

WOW! This 5 stars story was soooo much to take in! Jake and Nina’s story will have you seeing hope and possibilities, will break you apart, and then begin to mend your heart. The story began all cutesy with the flirty banter along with a new outlook in overcoming fear and phobias and just when I hoped for more I was torn by Jake’s make it or break it secret life! This author has a way with her characters and it had always gotten me hooked by them. A must read pick up a copy today that will have you looking at love in a whole new way.

5 Stars



JAKE UNDERSTOOD

Review By: Lisa

Penelope Ward doesn't disappoint yet again!

Reading this book made me remember just how much I actually fell in love with Jake in the first book,Jake Undone. The author has produced such a creative plot to this story that you would never expect. Although if you want more suspense than I suggest reading book one first. This book is without a doubt just as AMAZING. You got to be in Jake's head the whole time you read this and that's always a very good thing! 

There were many things that you knew from the first book and then out of nowhere came things that you had no clue about. THAT is what I hoped this to be like and it was and MUCH MORE! The story is very complex and very original, not anything I could possibly be prepared for and that's coming from someone who has read hundreds of romance novels. It's a double edged sword with lots of love and very steamy scenes that will make your dreams at night help you sleep better.

Penelope Ward is known for her incredible writing skills and has written many outstanding books. She's not a New York Times Bestseller for no reason, this lady can write! And she didn't let down in this book either, so without any spoilers in this review, may I just recommend buying it and reading it.

Thank You Again Ms. Ward for yet another 5 star read!

Sidenote: This book can be read as an extension to her Gemini Series because you also get to read about characters I've loved in her books prior.

5 Stars

Review By: Gina

I didn't think I could love Jake anymore than I did after Jake Undone, but I was wrong! Jake Understood is the retelling of Jake's and Nina's story, but from Jake's point of view. Even though there are scenes that overlap with Jake Undone, I did not find it at all redundant. I got butterflies all over again reading about how Jake and Nina first met and how their relationship developed. We also got a lot of new scenes that were not in Jake Undone. One of my favorites is when Jake and Nina go ice skating. It was both funny and sweet. 

Jake Understood starts of nine years after Jake Undone and goes between the past and the present. Sometimes it can be difficult to follow a book when it transitions like that, but I felt this book did it flawlessly. While I was reading, I imagined this book being played out like a movie and it was perfect. 

There was just one scene towards the end of the book, in the elevator, that I am on the fence about. I didn't hate it, but it just felt weird and awkward to me and maybe it could have been played out differently. Overall, great book that I highly recommend. Even though this can be read as a standalone, I do recommend reading Jake Undone just to get the most out of Jake and Nina's incredible love story.

4.5 Stars

Review By: Cristina 

This is Jake Green’s side of the story. He is a sexy, tattooed, engineer with a secret that no one knows other than his family. His mysterious whereabouts on the weekends has been kept under wraps until a blonde beauty moves into the apartment and changes the life he already has accepted was his fate.  

The Olsen twins look alike, Nina Kennedy is the intriguing girl with many phobias that moves into the apartment and captures Jake’s attention. Little did she expect that a bet with the womanizing roommate would ultimately change her life along with the intense connection that begins to grow. 

“Some of the most beautiful things are those we can only enjoy from afar. The unattainability makes the attraction more intense.”

I freaking love reading from the male’s perspective! It gives me the full circle of the story especially when it takes me on such an emotional ride. This second book in the series did not fall short regardless of reliving the memories of Jake & Nina story. It had me giddy, and broken, and once again mended my heart. A great 4.5 stars read into the mind of Jake!

 Jake..Jake..Jake...sometimes I want to shake him and then I want to hug him and hold him and declare his Sainthood 
      Nina ..is a one of a kind women ..that's for sure...I couldn't "do" what she does ...but then again you never really know until you're faced with certain things what you'll do ...the struggle is real ....
These two are AMAZING together...they have a truly beautiful relationship ..it's wonderful to see how it evolves and grows...
...I also liked the other characters interactions  with them ...it flowed well...loved the new stuff we learned from Jake's POV! Recommended Read
