Book Review A Love So Sweet by Addison Cole

book review a love so sweet by addison cole

Discover the magic of the Bradens, and fall in love with Addison Cole’s rich and romantic storytelling.

A Love So Sweet is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you’d expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you’re looking for a spicier romance, pick up the steamy edition, Lovers at Heart, Reimagined, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa’s sweet-romance pen name. 

In A Love So Sweet…

Treat Braden wasn’t looking for love when Max Armstrong walked into his Nassau resort, but he saw right through the efficient and capable facade she wore like a shield to the sweet, sensual woman beneath. One magnificent evening together sparked an intense connection, and for the first time in his life Treat wanted more than a casual affair. But something caused Max to turn away, and now, after weeks of unanswered phone calls and longing for the one woman he cannot have, Treat is going back to his family’s ranch to try to finally move on.

A chance encounter brings Treat and Max together again, and it turns into a night of intense passion and honesty. When Max reveals her secret, painful past, Treat vows to do everything within his power to win Max’s heart forever—including helping her finally face her demons head-on.

My Review

Oh my goodness! This is a great start to a beautiful new series! I can’t say it enough about how much I love Addison Cole’s books! 

This one was an absolute treat (Pun intended). I loved watching Treat and Max’s relationship unfold they were so cute! But Max wasn’t always there after one night of sparks she runs. So, Treat gave up, which in my opinion was dumb. You should never give up on someone you love. 

When Treat decides to move on back on his family’s ranch. Well, another encounter between the two sparks passion all over again and I couldn’t get enough! These two will give you a run for your money but once they finally stay together you will love every minute of it!

Book 2 of Sweet with Heat: The Bradens at Weston Series


Discover the magic of the Bradens, and fall in love with Addison Cole’s rich and romantic storytelling. 

Our Sweet Destiny is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you’d expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you’re looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy edition, Destined for Love, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa’s sweet-romance pen name.

After ditching a troubled relationship—and her veterinary practice in the process—Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is…until her horse is injured and the son of the man her father has been feuding with for more than forty years comes to her rescue. She’s spent forever trying to deny her attraction to headstrong, too-handsome-for-his-own-good cowboy Rex Braden. The last thing she needs is that particular man complicating her life.

Fiercely loyal Rex Braden has never put anyone or anything before his family. Despite the irate family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, unleashing fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love—and causing the rebel in each of them to rear its powerful head.

Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained as Rex and Jade find out if true love really can conquer all.

Life With PCOS Week Three

Hey Nerdy Peeps! It’s been a couple of weeks since my first update, so I thought I’d bring you guys up to speed on what I’m dealing with.


Started a medication called Provera to jump-start a period, but so far nothing. Yes, I’ll call the doctor soon I’m just waiting for the correct time limit. 

Diets suck! I’m practically eating nothing and I hate it, but I am getting the correct calories to lose weight in. 

Water and I do not mix. It just bores me. If you have any water infusing recipes I’d love to hear them! 

I’m still pretty tired all the time, but I’ve noticed that my naps are less frequent. 

I tried almond milk and I’m not a fan. It’s yucky. 

Like I said though, there might not be a cure, but I will win this fight! 

You can check out week one here:


life with PCOS week three

So, what am I up to?

I go back to the doctor for lab work on the 19th, then I go back 21 days after I finally start my period. (Personal I know, but oh well.) As for now, I am just doing my research, writing some stories, and reading all the books. Especially The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, this book is amazing! 

Now to the good stuff! 

I am part of two anthologies that are finally published! 

And my book baby will be her September 18, 2018! Let me leave you some links! 

Our Secret Nook:

life with PCOS week three 

Authors join together to support anti-bullying efforts with their words. Each has chosen one of three prompts and created a short story for your enjoyment.

1. You’re alone in your home and you keep hearing someone call out your name. What do you do?

2. Walking through an art gallery you come across a painting of yourself as a child, but it was painted more than 100 years ago.
How is this possible?

3. Driving on a dark, deserted road, your car breaks down, there is no cell service. A guy stops and offers you a ride. Do you take it? 

The Plus Sign 

life with PCOS week three life with PCOS week three

Time seems to drag. Shaking fingers, racing hearts, difficulty swallowing. Some have done this for months, each time their hearts breaking just a bit more. Others never imagined themselves in this position, disbelieving how they let it happen. They take a deep breath, willing the seconds to move just a bit faster until finally, time’s up.

It’s positive.

Take a journey through the ups and downs of pregnancy with these fourteen tales of love, loss, and hope. Featuring tears of joy, shattered dreams, newborn cries, and even a vampire, each heart-warming story is as unique as a pregnancy itself, capturing the hearts of its readers. While the ending is never predictable, one thing is for certain.

It all starts with a plus sign.

Proceeds from this anthology go directly to The Winchester Beacon of Hope Emergency Shelter. For more information visit:

Deadly Love

life with PCOS week three

Lexi Madison wasn’t the girl she used to be in Detroit. She did her best to leave her past where it belonged in the past. That even meant leaving the man she shot there. There was no way she was going to marry her father’s drug dealer’s son, even if she knew him.

Derek never wanted to live in his father’s footsteps, but he knew he wanted Lexi, even if it meant tricking her. The only thing he didn’t see happening was being shot by the one woman he loved. They may have been best friends, but now he was pissed.

So, there ya go Nerdy Peep! I have been one busy girl lately. I’m working on three other anthologies for this year, and I’m fighting PCOS, so I got this! I hope (hehe). I will keep you all updated to the best of my ability. And don’t worry I have lots of reviews coming your way! 

In Pieces by Christa Lynn Book Review

Hey Nerdy Peeps! Here’s another review and this one is a good one. I loved this book and I know you will too! 


When Hope Becomes a Memory


Thirteen years ago, I was ripped from my home and forced into servitude. My life was torn into pieces and became a living hell. Then, I was suddenly released into a different type of hell. A hell that knows no boundaries, that cares about no one. 
I will not trust anyone, I will not believe in anyone and I will not give in to anyone. 
I’m a survivor, and this hell, I will survive.


The world changed thirteen years ago. My life, as well as everyone else’s, was turned upside down. While others pillaged for food and water, I pillaged for weapons and books. If the Heretics want to take over the world, then I’ll lead the Mercenaries to battle for our country. 
I will not surrender, I will not bow down and I will not break. 

Kane refuses to let Jo sacrifice herself to find her family and he will do whatever necessary to put her pieces back together. 
Will she learn to trust again?
WIll she learn to put the power into Kane’s hands?
Or are there too many pieces to put back together?

in pieces by christa lynn book review

Book Review

Now, dystopian is not my usual cup of sweet tea, but this book was everything I could love in a book. It was a complete page turner and I couldn’t put it down. Just be warned that in this book there is some abuse. The women are kept as prisoners for sex and reproduction.

That being said when Jo could no longer have babies they threw her out into the dark and scary world. She found herself in a situation where thankfully she was saved by Kane. By the way, I love a good boy who saves the damsel in distress. I also love the bad boy tendencies Kane has. 

Their love story was a beautiful one and the friendship that Lynn throws in with the other woman who went through the same Hell was amazing and totally made the story. 

You definitely want to give this book a shot! You won’t be disappointed!

The Good Sister by Rachael Stewart Book Review

Hey Nerdy Peeps! Here is a review for Rachael Stewart’s new book The Good Sister. This book was another hot one so sit back and enjoy!

The Good Sister


When Isla Evans agrees to switch lives with her rising star of a twin for three weeks, she has no idea the move will thrust her into the same bed as her teenage celebrity heart-throb, Bradley King. Trapped there at her sister’s request, she gives her desire free reign and finds herself falling hard and fast.

And she’s not alone. 

Bradley wants a wife to tick all the boxes, save for one: love. It’s not part of the deal, never was, never will be. But when he returns home early to find his hopeful-fiancé behaving all sorts of different, he likes it. A lot. Suddenly, he wants a real marriage, with all the trimmings, and he will stop at nothing until he gets it.

Book Review

This one was a hot one! It wasn’t as raunchy as Unshackled, but it was good. Isla switches places with her twin sister for a few weeks, but Carrie forgot to mention her boyfriend. The boyfriend happens to be Isla’s teenage crush. 

Now, they are falling in love, but Bradley doesn’t know the truth. Their flirting is adorable and I couldn’t get enough. I was waiting for Isla and Carries secret to come out, but the more it didn’t the more these two fell in love. 

I loved everything about this story and I love Rachael’s writing style she is absolutely amazing and is becoming one of my top favorite authors! She does an amazing job with this entire story you won’t want to put it down and you will love the happy ending!

Check out my review of Unshackled

But this Hollywood HEA faces one big hurdle—she’s not who he thinks she is…

Bayside Heat by Melissa Foster Book Review


Bayside Heat by Melissa Foster Book Review


Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.


Drake Savage has always done the right thing, especially where beautiful and fiercely determined Serena Mallery is concerned-even when it means keeping his feelings for her to himself. Serena has always wanted more than what their small town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts has to offer, and Drake’s roots are so deeply entrenched in the Cape, it’s all he can do to watch her pack up her life and move away.

Serena has always had big dreams. As a teenager, she dreamed of becoming an interior designer and marrying smart, musically inclined, sexy-as-sin Drake Savage. Now she’s finally landed a killer job with a top interior design firm, but though she has spent the last four years working side by side with Drake, he’s never made a move. Four years is long enough for her to accept reality, and her new job in Boston is the perfect way to move on.

A weak moment leads to sizzling, sensual kisses, opening a door through which they’ve both been aching to walk. But Serena’s determined not to give up her shot at the career she’s always dreamed of, and Drake has loved her for too many years to stand in her way. With true love at their fingertips and a world of unstoppable passion igniting between them, can the two star-crossed lovers find their way to their happily ever after?

My Review

Drake has always had feelings for the beautiful Serena, but of course, he would never let her know. They’ve been working together for the past four years and when an amazing opportunity for Serena pops up he loves her too much to get in the way. 

Since neither of them will act on their feelings Serena decides it’s time to move on and take the job in Boston. Even though Drake holds his feelings back he decides that he can’t let her go after all. 

Drake and Serena’s friendship was absolutely adorable, and every time they wouldn’t let their feelings get in the way I was like “oh come on now tell each other!” but nope Melissa left us waiting. I loved it though! When they finally do tell each other it was the cutest thing ever. I’m always up for a good love story and Melissa never disappoints. So, if you haven’t already you definitely need to give her stories a shot!

Bayside Desires (Bayside Summers #1)

As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.

Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.

Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

Bayside Passions (Bayside Summers #2)

Bayside Passions (Bayside Summers Book 2) by [Foster, Melissa]

When Emery Andrews’s best friend, Desiree, moves away, falls in love, and opens an inn all in one summer, she feels her absence like a missing limb. Until she visits over the holidays and meets sinfully hot Dean Masters, who’s as easy on the eyes as he is to talk to. After returning home, what starts as a flurry of late-night flirtations quickly turns into a deep connection and unexpected friendship. Now, months later, Desiree offers Emery a job teaching yoga at the inn. Adventurous Emery jumps at the chance and heads for Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to reunite with her BFF and her new close friend, Dean.

After months of sharing their lives, and their secrets, over video chats and phone calls, Dean’s ready to move things to the next level. The fact that Emery seems oblivious to the sparks between them and has recently put her foot down about dating friends just means he’ll have to bide his time.

When Emery finds a naked man in her kitchen the first morning she’s there, Dean doesn’t hesitate to move her into his guest room. Maybe now Emery will see what’s right before her eyes–although that guy she’s got a date with might be a problem.
