Q: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving Day food? If you’re not American or Canadian, what is your favorite holiday food?

My favorite Thanksgiving Day food would have to be stuffing. I love the turkey, the potatoes, yams, and rolls, but there is just something about the stuffing that is just perfect! If I had it my way I would have it more often, but then I would probably get tired of it. :(

What is your favorite Thanksgiving Day food?

Review: Unforgiven by Elizabeth Finn

A mistake made long ago…

Pain buried so deep…

When Bailey Trent returns home to her small little Ozark mountain town after being away for nearly six years, she knows she’ll face the ghosts of her past. It does not mean she’s prepared to come face to face with the cruelest of those memories.

Darren Cory’s life is a shell of what it once was, and when he’s forced to endure the cause of his agony, hatred abounds quickly. But hating Bailey destroys him too.

Can Darren find a way to move past the pain and forgive the woman he once cared so much for before his anger consumes them both? Or will he drag them into the hell of an unforgiven past.

My Thoughts:

****Warning! This review contains spoilers! If you have not read this book, do NOT read this review!******

One choice. One decision. One mistake. That is all it takes to loose everything you have and everything you had hoped for. 

Bailey represents many young adults who decide to get behind the wheel intoxicated. She didn't think she was that drunk. She didn't think that anyone would get hurt. She certainly never meant to mess up her life so badly, but unfortunately sometimes our decisions have consequences that we never foresee.

Bailey has just gotten out of jail. She is trying to pick up the pieces of her life and trying to start over. That is easier said than done. Not only does she have to deal with her own guilt over killing her best friend, but it seems everyone in town would be more than happy to never see her again. She has the support of her mother and her friend Michelle, but that is where the love for her ends.

Darren is the brother of the best friend she killed, and also the man she loved. Darren, bless his heart, is confused, angry, and feels betrayed. He trusted Bailey, and even though his own sister was drunk that night as well, he has no sympathy for Bailey at all. In fact, his hatred has begun to control his every thought. Emotions he thought he had buried a long time ago have decided to make an appearance. Even worse, he finds that he is still attracted to Bailey. 

This story is about working through the hardships that come with life and coming out on the side of forgiveness. How do you forgive someone when they took away someone you love? How can you still love that person that you hate with everything you have?

This story made me cry. Not just once, but multiple times. All Bailey wants is to go back in time and she can't. She just wants someone to understand and love her for her mistakes. She wishes she could even forgive herself. Darren wants her out of his life, but can't make it without her. This is a roller coaster of a ride that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time. There is nothing dull about this book and I dare anyone to read it without crying. 

Elizabeth Finn did a wonderful job of capturing the emotion and the hardship of making that one bad decision. I cannot wait to see what she will write next!

My Rating: 5 Stars!

Review: Reaper's Property by Joanna Wylde

Marie doesn’t need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother’s house one afternoon doesn’t agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now.

But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she’s not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse—she doesn’t know his real name or where he lives, she’s ninety percent certain he’s a criminal and that the “business” he talks with her brother isn’t website design. She needs him out of her life, which would be a snap if he’d just stop giving her mind-blowing orgasms.

Horse is part of the Reapers Motorcycle Club, and when he wants something, he takes it. What he wants is Marie, but she’s not interested in becoming “property of”.

Then her brother steals from the club. Marie can save him by giving Horse what he wants—at home, in public, on his bike… If she’s a very, very good girl, she’ll get lots more of those orgasms only he can offer, and he’ll let her brother live.

A Romantica® contemporary erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

My Thoughts:
This is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading from this author, and I can honestly say that I am now and forever a fan. Reaper's Property is not some fairy tale story where the princess is protected, dumb, and weak. This book dwells into real life. Where the prince isn't always a good guy and nothing is perfect. 

I liked how in the beginning of the book, the chapters would flip back and forth between the past and present to give us a better idea of what had led up to the starting point of the book. I also liked seeing things from both Horse's POV and Marie's. Without both, it would be really hard to understand both of the characters. Some of their actions don't make sense until they later reflect upon them. 

Marie is a fighter. She has finally left her husband and has moved in with her brother, Jeff. It is not the best of circumstances, but at least she is safe and happy. That is until the Reaper's show up. Marie's brother is a piece of work. While I honestly believe he cares about his sister, some of his decisions are just plain stupid.  I wanted to reach into the book and shake him, because Jeff has done something so stupid that it's about to cost him his life. He stole from a Motorcycle Club. And not just any club, but the Reapers. 

Horse is an alpha male who also rides a motorcycle. Yum! Even better, he is in the Reaper's. *Swoon* He is possessive, rude, and can be a real asshole but he also has a soft side that makes it hard not to love him. From the moment he meets Marie, he knows that she will be his. (In his alpha "all knowing" way) Unfortunately for him, Marie has other plans. Horse always gets what he wants though so when the opportunity presents itself to just take Marie, he does. He offers her a deal. Her willingly coming with him and to his bed, and they won't kill her brother. 

I loved the chemistry between Horse and Marie. They are both so stubborn and set in their ways. They both had to struggle to understand each other and Marie had to come to terms with the way of the MC. Very steamy read, and I don't think anyone's ovaries will ever be the same.  

By the end of the book I was in shock by all the twists and turns! I did not see the ending coming. I had some suspicions, but I did not think it would end like that. :( The good part that came out of it was Horse and Marie. :)

This book is a must read for all who love a bad boy, alpha male who is possessive, talks dirty, and isn't afraid to take what he thinks is his. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!

My Rating: 5 Stars!
